This was my third stay at the Penn hotel. The location can not be faulted, it is walking distance to everything and has some great restaurants near by. It is an old hotel and with that comes need for repair but by all accounts this hotel is in good shape. My only fault is the room facilities room 1566 such... More

This hotel was part of my school trip. It is far from how it looks on the outside. Rooms were adequate but lacked any love or care, could do with updating. Good location, but I think any hotel in New York City is close to any bit attractions. Just a little bit let down as this hotel has great potential... More

REASONS TO STAY AWAY: -A near-2 hour wait to check-in (which was standard for this hotel) -Mice and roaches in the bathroom -Metal debris on the bathroom floor -Rude front desk staff, refusal to alert a manager of problems -No answer when calling front desk from room -Dirty room/sheets/bedding -Dried blood/feces on lampshades Literally nothing I can recommend.

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
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.
