I rarely post negative reviews but after staying at the Selina Chelsea, I feel I have to in order that others won't make the mistake I did. Stayed on night: Friday, September 11th to Saturday, September 12th 2020. Location is very nice. About midway between 10th and 11th Avenues on 27th Street. Very nice neighborhood. Lobby and restaurant bar area seemed ok but desolate and deserted due to the pandemic. Not the hotel's fault. Front desk staff were helpful and courteous. No complaints at all. First booked in room 47. Got up to room, opened the door and found two naked people in the shower. Said nothing. Shut door returned to front desk. Took a bit of time (like 15 minutes) to straighten everything out. Apologies from staff. Fine. Got re-booked into room 78. Staff checked before I went up to avoid and repeat of what occurred before. All good as far as the room being already occupied. Condition of elevator not great. Carpet dirty. Looked like it had not been vacuumed in a few days. Hallway was dark. At first I thought it might be kinda sexy but after staying here, it was definately more creepy than sexy. Hall smelled of cigarette smoke. So did the room. Turning on the air conditioning worked to clear it a bit. Luckily the air conditioning worked very well. Room was in mediocre condition. Rough around the edges. Big crack in closet door. Bathroom sink chiped. Mini mirror light didn't work. Wood work around bed was frayed. I could go on and on. It was depressing. Small TV with the most limited channel selection I have ever found in a hotel. I understand that nowadays a lot of people don't even us the TV in a hotel room but some of us still do. I kept losing the signal when I attempted to move the TV's position. I'm not sure how old this hotel is but from the looks of things, it seemed to be about 10 years old. It just looked like the room and the hallways could use a good cleaning. The bed was surprisingly comfortable so I was happy with that. HOWEVER....people on my floor were smoking a LOT. The smell of cigarette and marijuana smoke permeated by room all night. At one point it got so bad that I got out of bed and contemplated requesting a refund and going to another hotel. It was late and I decided to just try and deal with it. Not an easy thing to do. I have to say that the staff was very nice. It was the condition of the hotel and the smoking that really killed my experience with this place.

Great location, great room, great price. Located right by the Highline, this hotel thrives on being different without being weird or impractical. Great use of space in the room with ample space for luggage and a reasonably sized modern bathroom.Bed is on a slightly raised platform with the mattress then resting on the floor. Those with limited mobility who need the normal clearance between floor and the top of the mattress may not like this. Otherwise great. Got a great price but could be down to time of year (late Feb). Excellent check in staff as well.

I've stayed at this hotel twice because its convenient when I have my son and I'm working evenings. The rooms are very tiny. The last time I stayed the mattress was horrible. I work at a hotel and I know the GSA has no control over that. When I mentioned it to Mia (I think thats her name) She offered to change my room. & she did. She was very nice and accommodating. I will definietly stay here again.

My husband and I were set to travel MLK weekend, and stay at the Selina Hotel. Unfortunately, I came down with the flu and had to cancel our trip to NYC. It was less than 24 hours notice when I called to cancel. The woman at the front desk who took my phone call, Mia, was so accommodating. She listened to me, wished me well and gave me her manager’s contact. When I reached out to the manger via email, she responded to me immediately and waived our cancellation fee. I am even more excited to stay at the Selina the next time we’re in the city. Thank you again to Mia and Kate for being so helpful and kind.

Let’s start with the positives: + The location next to the Highline, near galleries and the Hudson Yards is extremely convenient + The staff is super friendly and helpful - The rooms are poorly lit and not well sound proofed – you can hear a lot of street noise and your hotel neighbors (bring earplugs and eye shades) - The low platform beds are waaay too soft and it’s awkward getting in and out of them – they are like having a mattress on the floor (in the middle of the first night, I started thinking of the bed as ‘the rotisserie of pain’ due to all of the tossing and turning and inability to get comfortable) - - The undisclosed $25 daily ‘facility fee’ that was charged in spite of the fact that the rooftop restaurant and public areas were closed (the ‘restaurant’ was relocated to the basement next to the boiler room). This fee should have at least been mentioned in the confirmation email. In sum, this hotel is just ‘ok’ and quite pricey for what it is ($400-450/night with all of the taxes and fees). I’d suggest going elsewhere – the Citizen M Midtown or the Yotel.
