The only saving grace of this hotel is that it's right across from Madison Square Garden. It's totally gross here and not worth the money spent. We encountered mold, blood stains, bugs, hair and dirt in BOTH of the rooms we stayed in. We asked to change rooms because the first one had dead bugs all over the ceiling and... More

Words fail me when I recall this hotel; hysterical laughter happens instead. I tried to find a situation through AirBnB and VRBO for two weeks and could not find one available, so I booked Hotel Pennsylvania because it was centrally located and (relatively) inexpensive for NYC. I should have read the reviews...big mistake on my part. We arrived at Penn... More

Reading the reviews here would set anyone's hearts cross ways... If you want a safe, well located hotel on a budget (that you want to spend in Macys 2 blocks away) this is the spot. There is a reason the lobby is like grand central station - people worldwide cant get enough of the location. Location - Great. Staff- Good.... More

We arrived at noon, a few hours before checkin time. The front desk told us they would hold our bags, but would charge us five dollars for each bag to do so. I find that to be cheap and poor service. To check in our bags, we had to go to the basement where the luggage handler hit on my... More

PROs: - Excellent location, very close to Times Square, in the heart of Manhattan. - Absolutely not expensive - Nice TVs in the rooms, not cable TV though. CONs: - Don't expect anything special: corridors are dirty, rooms are bad and (very) old style. - It looks like you are in an horror movie (it could be a PRO actually,... More

Like others, I was very worried about booking the hotel after reading other reviews, but booked because of a price deal from the UK. BEWARE - Read the small print because the deal price didn't include a resort tax or a couple of other taxes that suddenly appeared and the price wasn't such a bargain when it hit the credit... More

Multiple mistakes with booking, put in wrong room, staff tried to apologise but couldn't explain why the mistakes had occurred, rooms overpriced considering what you're paying per night, dirty and old. Will not be returning

I only spent one night (July 3, 2016), at the Pennsylvania Hotel, so I can't claim that this is going to be a definitive review of the hotel. I selected the hotel for its price (I paid $166.71 including taxes), and its location close to Penn Station, where I arrived on an Amtrak train from Niagara Falls. The hotel is... More

Save your money and sleep on the street instead! Dirty and old! Nothing like the pictures online. The shower and carpet are filthy. I don't feel comfortable staying here so I'm leaving to check into a real hotel.

Staying in Chelsea

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.
