We stayed at Chelsea Pines for 5 days, a week after Sandy hit. Jay welcomed us in his cheery friendly manner and we just knew this was going to be a great experience. We were given the Rock Hudson room on the fifth floor which had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The bed was great, lovely big fluffy towels, plenty of sitting space, mini fridge and beautiful modern bathroom. (Gotta love that poster!!). The vase of fresh roses was a delightful touch too.
The location is fantastic for walking or taking the subway which is very easy to use. We loved walking the Highline at every opportunity just to people watch, Chelsea Markets for food, the Italian restaurant is very good. Sunday morning in Greenwich for coffee and wandering the streets. All this just outside the green front door.
We enjoyed meeting our friends down in the breakfast room to plan our days. The food was plentiful, fresh and continually being restocked. We appreciated the fresh fruit and also being able to use the kitchen at anytime to make a cuppa and try some of the sweet treats left out. What a great way to rest our weary feet after a long day out.
But the overall reason to stay here would be the staff, every single person was friendly, polite and helpful. Always had time to stop and talk to us, were interested in us to make sure we had a great stay and to give us all the information we needed to make the most of our visit to NYC. We enjoyed chatting with Jay, he is a delightful man and very good at his chosen career. We felt like we were staying with friends. You will not be staying in a cold, impersonal hotel if you choose Chelsea Pines.
Oh and did I tell you about how clean the entire Inn was? Spotless.
The guys also ordered a car service for us to take us to the airport, lots of photo's taken out in the street when we left!
So if you are looking for a pleasant, clean place to stay with fabulous staff - look no further.
