This is a 'cool' place and special atmosphere. Sorry to say I have quite a lot of things to raise for - really quite arrogant staff, pretty small rooms (but nice rooms), very poor wifi, noicy at night (until after 2pm from nightclub), and not very central location for business travellers. I have stayed there twice, and sorry to say...

Great staff, front desk team, doormen, and concierge. Perfect location right by Chelsea market. Hip comfortable rooms. Love the porthole Windows. Don't miss the Bodega Negra. Willing to go the extra mile including the donning of sock and shoe for injured guest. I'll be back.

I love this hotel! Reminds me a bit of south beach miami. I spent the night here for a quick work trip. I felt very safe in this hotel. Rooms were clean.

Second visit to this hotel and hard to imagine staying anywhere else in the City. The location couldn't be cooler, straddling the line between Chelsea and the Meatpacking District but without the eye-watering rates of the latter. The lobby and rooftop lounge are where the cities beautiful people want to see and be seen - the views from PHD are...

Loved the chic hotel room that was such a change from the typical, business like atmosphere of a lot of hotels. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable and the staff was helpful and pleasant.

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.
