Our air conditioner did not work. The hotel did not have any fans available. We purchased a fan from Kmart next door to help. The location is next to penn station and is great. We purchased unlimited subway passes for 7 days and lost track of how many ride we used.

This is the worst dump in which I have ever stayed. Utterly horrible. Dirty carpets, dirty beds, dirty bathrooms, moldy walls painted over. Getting off the elevator, I was looking for the twins from "The Shining". Good location and lobby, but it all ends there. I wouldn't board my dog here. First, they screwed up our reservation, and then suggested... More

After reading reviews of this hotel, I was just plain scared. But, it was all for naught. It is true that the check in line was ridiculous and we did wait for 45 minutes, but we already knew to expect that so it wasn't too bad. There is plenty of seating in the lobby so if you're checking in with... More

Hotel Penn as they call it is a large and busy place. The room we had was OK but the bathroom was small. The hotel lobby was always crowded and it took a long time to book in, even at 3 pm our room wasn't ready so we had to leave our bags and return. We were charged for this... More

Pennsylvania Hotel was for us family of five, a great place to start exploring the big apple. It's value for money to be across MSG. Behind your back the ESB. few blocks on the right Times Square and 42nd street. The hotel is just the place to sleep ; spend the rest of the time elsewhere. It's old but it... More

Stayed in this modest hotel with a friend of mine. Both had single beds in a twin share room. The room was dated however, the money we paid to stay there was fairly cheap so we can't complain. Bathroom was satisfactory and the hotel is positioned very close to the empire state building and is central to all the touristy... More

This is a terrible hotel. We only stayed one night. It took almost a whole hour to check in. The rude front desk staff did not help. The rooms are old, dirty and very tacky. No WiFi. TV did not work. Would be a great location for "The Shining 2".

We had one of the newly remodeled Penn5000 rooms this time. Nicer than the older rooms but we stay here because of the location. Across the street from Penn Station and within walking distance to many attractions and shopping. Reasonable rates and clean accommodations.

My sister and I shared a double room on the 8th floor of the hotel and found our room in a mess. Missing beds and the room smelt extremely bad. Although we were given another room, our impression of the hotel was disappointing

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.
