We stayed here in for only one night as we were in town for a musical. It's true the staff is warm and helpful and if your wife is Chatty Kathy like mine they will even sit and listen to her. Amazing! The breakfast nook is small and inviting with cookies and coffee in the afternoon when we arrived. Easy again to strike up a conversation with guests if you like that sort of thing. Feels like a B&B for sure. There are many places to walk in the surrounding area, restaurants, stores etc. We walked all the way up to Broadway and back for our show, easily doable if you are looking for exercise. Room small, clean, comfortable, and quiet. We will definitely come back next show we hit. Only downside is we had to leave and missed the Thur night wine and cheese party.

Well, the rooms are really small but this is NY after all.
But the location makes up for it. Lovely shopping and eating. So many things within the walking distance.
The staff is friendly and helpful. You can have coffee and lovely pastries or fruit the whole day long.

I found out about CPI through TA, but ended up being a little apprehensive about all these glowing reviews. It just seemed too good to be true, especially with all the 1 review-reviewers. I'm definitely not picky when it comes to hotels and don't demand much, but still, the prospect of getting somehow conned by all these dashing reviews made me slightly queezy.
Shouldn't have had to worry one microsecond. It was great. It was cosy. It was everything everyone says it is. Phew.

We had the Donna Reed-room up on the fourth floor, which meant a hike up all those stairs. A pain at times, but I guess I can thank them for my now slightly more chiselled calves. The room was bigger than what I have come to expect in New York, the bed comfortable, and as we had a window facing the garden > zero noise. We entered with a smile on our faces, looking at the posters, sighing and being content about it all.

Breakfast wasn't amazing, at least if you're used to eating more along the likes of protein/porridge/rye bread. But those chewy bagels did do the trick.

The personnel was wonderful, asking about our day, having that "we care"-attitude, which truly made us feel welcome.

The locations is perfect, a couple of meters from (among others) the A-train, which is more than perfect when coming from JFK or going the A-train+M60-bus to LGA. The station has an elevator. Union Square, the Village, the Meatpacking District, Chelsea, all the best parts of New York are right there.

All in all, Chelsea Pines Inn felt like a home away from home. It's not a starched-white-linens-kind of place, nor is it overly shiny and new. But it is charming, it is clean, it has a personality. It is welcoming. And thus, perfect.

On my previous visit to New York we stayed at a rather anonymous, ordinary hotel. The Chelsea Pines Inn is nothing of the sort - it is an interesting, vibrant place to stay in a wonderful part of the city. It was great to be so near a subway as well. Jay and his staff were immensely helpful and friendly and this added to our enjoyment of our stay.
Our room was very clean and spacious. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and it was interesting to meet and chat to the other guests.If you miss breakfast there is always something on offer throughout the day.
I hope to return to New York soon, and if I do I will certainly want to stay at the Chelsea Pines Inn.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the CPI at the end of October and it certainly lived up to it's reputation on Trip Advisor! As soon as we arrived our bags were taken to our rooms and we were told the cheese and wine night was about to start...perfect! Our room was fab, lovely comfy bed with the loveliest bedding, cool framed film posters, the cutest bathroom with a great shower and products, gorgeous roses and a card for my boyfriends birthday and spotlessly clean. The whole stay was perfect, great location right by the subway but we chose to walk, just 20 mins to Macy's! Great restaurants nearby; Green table in Chelsea Market, Dos Caminos Mexican and Buddakan all fab! Breakfast was great, loved the bread of the day, amazing bagels, perfect coffee and juices, ham, cheese, cereal, yoghurt etc etc and coffee and cookies available all day too free of charge! Staff were amazing and so friendly and helpful and Charlie Chaplin the cat who lives at the hotel is adorable and I wanted to bring him home, in fact we really didn't want to come home! We will definitely be back! Laura and Craig xxx
