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.

Great deal and great location. Clean and charming. Negatives: No elevator and steep stairs. Tiny TV. No ice machine. Breakfast is weak. The coffeemaker is an espresso machine yhat makes terrible, bitter coffee. They should invest in a Keurig coffeemaker. Also no cold drinking water us provided.

Love the rooms inspired by classic Hollywood stars and decorated with original movie posters! It's a clean place, reasonably priced -- and conveniently located right by the 14th Street/8th Avenue Station. The staff is very helpful and friendly, too. We will stay here again and have already recommended it to friends.

This is a small hotel with a very hip vibe. I thoroughly enjoyed my three-day stay. Clean and pleasant room, comfortable bed, great shower (no tub), excellent WiFi (free), very good breakfast with excellent coffee. Terrific location (steps from subway) with many first-rate restaurant options nearby. There’s no elevator, which may bother some travelers (although I didn’t care), and steps at the entrance may make access difficult – if not impossible – for handicapped visitors. Despite the access issues, I recommend this hotel.

This is a quirky little hotel with a theme of classic movies. The Chelsea location is convenient - a half block from the subway and a short walk to the Highline. We had no trouble getting quickly to places like Battery Park, Midtown, and the American Museum of Natural History. There are several places nearby for a quick bite to eat. The deli across the street is decent. Security was adequate. The front door is kept locked, so you either have to get buzzed in by the attendant at the desk, or you need a room key. All the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. Breakfast consists of cereals, bread, and yogurts, with a some cheese and lunch meat. The bread is almost all white. It would have been nice to have some whole-grain products. Most evenings there were snacks available in the kitchen, like cookies, tea, and coffee. There is a pleasant little glass enclosed eating area at the back of the hotel. Our room was very small, but clean, functional, and neat, much like what you get at less expensive, family owned hotels in Europe. Since it was on the front of the building, our room was a little noisy until about 11 pm, especially on garbage collection night. You might want to ask for a room in the back if you are a light sleeper. There is no elevator in the building, but they make that clear on their website. The stairs are also fairly steep. The staff will carry your bags upstairs, if needed. Our only real complaint was the plastic cover on the mattress. Since there was only a sheet over the plastic, whatever parts of our bodies that were next to the plastic tended to sweat. Like many hotels these days, the bed had a sheet and a comforter instead of blankets. With this arrangement I am always too hot with the comforter on and too cold with it off. This often leads to cranking up the AC so it is cold enough to sleep under the comforter. I hate to think how much electricity this wastes. In all, it was a pleasant, convenient place to stay while exploring New York City. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location for my needs (close to the Village Vanguard). Though the rooms are narrow mine was deeper than what I expected from pictures I had seen. The 4 levels without elevator is clearly display on every booking website I looked at, so, no surprise and the staff helps you with your baggage. My room was "Ann Margret" and I don’t have to complain about the bed/mattress as I have read in other reviews. The basic breakfast included (not so often the case in american hotels) could be a little more elaborated. (suggestion, some jam, cold yogourts and butter, higher quality cold cuts). Also have free coffee and tea + small snacks all day long.
