To those who rate this place higher and say it's a good value, I shake my head. (I've stayed at the W NY for less than I paid for this $hithole.) If it wasn't for the influx of visitors for UN and Fashion weeks I would have left upon arrival. (I had to stay here three nights because every place... More

After staying at the hotel last week and reading some of the reviews on here i felt like i had to add my piece... It really does surprise me what some people are really expecting when they check into a "budget" hotel in NYC..If you're looking for a classy, uptown NYC hotel like you see in the movies then this...

I am traveling for business and booked Hotel 309 through my companies travel management system. I booked in a hurry and didn't realize that the normal room has a shared bathroom instead of a private bathroom. When I asked the front desk attendee if he could upgrade me (at my expense) to a room with a bathroom, he told me... More

DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL. I had the unfortunate experience of staying in this disgusting hotel in NY. We were looking for a slighter cheaper but nice accommodation in the heart of Manhattan, and thought we had found a perfect hotel... We were greeted by the receptionist who was blunt and sarcastic, after we had a long bus journey.... More

For those who likes the beauty of the NYC and want to be out of the crazy tourist noise, a good choice in the core of Chelsea. Not for exigent people, needs improvements in the common areas and shared bathrooms. The rooms are like the pictures, very comfortable and the kitchen is super useful.

This hotel is nothing like the photos on booking.com. However, in saying that when I was booking I wasn't naïve to think that it would be based on the price and new York accommodation in general. The hotel is a little on the shabby side but the rooms were clean. Staff could be a bit friendlier (there was no hello... More

When we arrived the man at the counter did not care at all, and was over all really rude. The room smelled badly because of the poor air condition. Despite we had a teakitchen, there was no teatowels or a sponge to clean the dishes with. The shared bathroom always smelled badly. The breakfast was awfull and there was never... More

very good starting point for discovering NY, close to subway and a couple of interesting places around. unfortunately overall living conditions were very poor (to say the least). I realise this is a hostel not 5 star marriott, but if if someone says "breakfasts included" I expect to have a breakfast and not rotten bagels (literally green bagels). is it... More

Bad air conditioning: not working properly (we were in June, very hot days) 2. Breakfast is poor (by quantity and quality) and there is no proper space to do it: milk,coffee, few amounts of... More

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.
