Booked this hotel for a week of fun in NYC. Location and staff are great- however the rooms are so small. We could hardly fit our luggage in our room. If two people are in the room make sure you let the front desk know you will need water for 2. (coffee and water are complementary). Our front desk agents were graceful and helpful in everything. There is a great coffee shop with great food during the day. This hotel is closed to everything and in the heart of Chelsea. Great restaurants and bars near by. The subway is a block away.

I was visiting my brother in New York and stayed 8 nights at the GEM Hotel in Chelsea. I think everyone agrees that the rooms are small but as I was on my own this was no barrier to having a simply wonderful stay. The very friendly and helpful reception staff set the tone and the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and serviced daily. Having said the room was small the bathroom was quite a decent size and the shower was excellent. My room overlooked 8th Avenue and even had a view of the top half of the Empire State building. The roof terrace was very pleasant with tables, chairs and sun umbrellas for the use of guests (as well as the view of the Empire State building).

The Chelsea area where the hotel is situated is wonderful - fairly quiet, leafy streets with lots of town house type residences rather than enormous skyscrapers. There were some fabulous restaurants on 9th Ave and you could eat a different style of food every evening. Underneath the hotel, on the corner of 8th Ave and 22nd St, there is a lovely organic restaurant and deli/shop/wine shop called Foragers which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Within easy walking distance were the Empire State building, Macy's department store, the Chelsea High Line (wonderful to stroll along but very busy on weekends), the Flat Iron district and the iconic Flat Iron building, Chelsea Piers, the Meatpacking District, Greenwich Village and, at a push, the 42nd St pier for Circle Line cruises. Most of the other famous sights in New York can be accessed via the 23rd St subway station one block from the hotel. In fact you can take this subway line to and from JFK airport.

One of the things I loved most about staying in Chelsea was the peace of the area after the hustle and bustle of downtown and midtown Manhattan and the area felt very safe. I plan to visit New York again in the near future and will definitely stay at the GEM hotel in Chelsea.

Room Tip: The rooms are small and ideally suit solo travellers or couples without children (unless the children are old enough for their own room).

We had a wonderful stay. Yes, the rooms are small, but they are efficiently laid out. Two adults fit fine.
The staff are all friendly. Check in and check out were quick and efficient.
The room itself was clean and tasteful. Great shower - hot water, lots of pressure. The location was excellent. Nice, safe area. A few nearby places to grab a bite. The subway is a few steps away. Would definitely stay again.

A great hotel tucked away in the heart of Chelsea, NYC. A beautiful lobby and friendly staff greet you went you enter. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable after a long day of travel or touring. It doesn't have that vanilla, cookie cutter hotel feel, it is stylish and hip but warm.

The Gem is two short blocks from the nearest subway stop for getting to other parts of the city, but Chelsea is a wonderful residential neighborhood with tons of great restaurants and people watching. For a fun evening in, get a bottle of wine or cup of coffee from Forager Market next door (the staff make wonderful recommendations) and head to the roof deck for an amazing view that includes the Empire State Building.

A wonderful hotel that is an amazing find among the many options. I will definitely stay here in the future.
