Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.

Very decent hotel in NYC at a reasonable price, which is different than many hotels in NYC, so that's why we used. Will do again in future possibly if going back to NYC for this area of the City on a business project.

Truly awful beds and pillows- both were lumpy and hard. I don’t look for too much in hotels, especially when I know I won’t be spending much time in the room, but this was an awful place to lay my head at night. The location...More

As of July 1 2018 there is not. I believe these fees have to be revealed in the booking process so you would know.
