The Chelsea is a rare deal for a two-star hotel in the middle of Manhattan. For two beds the charge was $145/night + taxes. In August, you're lucky to find anything under $200. I've stayed in two- and three-star hotels around Manhattan, so I have those experiences to use as a measuring stick.
Spacious room. I've stayed in tiny three-star hotels, so I was pleasantly surprised.
Attentive staff: I've read complaints about rudeness, but I didn't encounter this problem. They let me and my traveling partner leave our bags in the morning and check in later when our room was cleaned. They offered a band-aid when we asked for one. They looked up the locations of sights without hesitation.
Clean: No bugs. Good chambermaid service. Clean towels. Toiletries (shampoo, lotion, etc.) daily re-stocked. Fresh towels.
Breakfast: Okay, it's only bagels, muffins and croissants plus coffee, but it's a good start to the day, and there are lots of nearby restos to grab eggs, etc.
Location: 23rd/7th which means you access to different subway lines on this block. You can walk south the Greenwich Village, Chinatown, etc., or north to Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, Macy's, etc.
Shower: Great water pressure. Clean taps, etc.
A little noisy: I was on the 3rd floor facing 7th and you can hear sirens at night.
AC: A little slow. The air con has a limited range in temperature, so you have to run it for a while to cool the room.
Washroom: lacks a fan/ventilator. A minor quibble.
No gym or business center. You have to pay $10/day for WiFi. My advice: Go to the public library across the street during business hours or the local Starbucks.
Overall, I was happy with my stay here and would consider coming again. Advice: Call the hotel directly for a good rate.
