“Very nice, quiet and good ubication”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Very friendly, good service and helpful staff, room is not to big but is very clean.
Small breakfast is very good : cheese, bread, jam, some fruit, cereal, milk, juice, coffe, tea, soft cheese.
Bathroom is separated WC from shower (practical).
The bed is too soft for us. Be aware that there is no elevator, so going up or down with luggage is hard even hotel staff is very kind to help.
Safe box in your room as well a small refigerator, also have a internet room so you can print your boarding pass (no charge)
Rooms are named after old American movie stars, room with the old film posters of the movie star.
Neighbordhood is nice, half block to subway lines A,C,E and 2 blocks for lines 1,2,3
Near High Line Park, that we didn´t know about and they recomended
We recomend the Pizza restaurant Rockys almost crossing the street from the hotel, they are open until 5:00 am

Room Tip: We staid in first floor (no elevator) and in the back so it was very quiet

Located in the Meatpacking district, which is vibrant and gorgeous & a great place to explore from. The subway is right out front. All the rooms are named after famous movie stars and you are treated like one of the family. Very friendly & dedicated staff who make you feel right at home & are very helpful. We loved the breakfast with all the fresh fruit, joghurt, all kinds of tea and coffee, bagels, muffins and cereals. The garden is like an italian patio.
Wonderful location, wonderful place, wonderful staff!
I hope to come back.
Great Place!!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Chelsea Pines. It is convenient to several subway lines and within walking distance to the Highline Park and Union Square. The service was exceptional and the staff is upbeat. They serve a complimentary breakfast each morning which was a real treat. There are no elevators so we learned to pack for the day each morning. The staff will help you with your bags as you arrive and depart. We will definitely stay here each time as we return to NYC to visit with our granddaughter.

Staying at the Chelsea Pines Inn is always a wonderful experience. This was the third time we stayed there, and we felt immediately like being back home!
The entire staff is great and extremely accomodating, and so is the owner Jay whose local recommandations are unvaluable (and who arranged for us some last-minute tickets for the show "Pippin" that we adored). The entire staff is always available for a little chat and for giving tips and recommandations.
The Chelsea Pines Inn is a very charming boutique hotel with individually decorated rooms (each one dedicated to a movie star) and all the various rooms we have booked so far have been wonderfully comfortable, nice and clean (we have been in three different rooms throughout our various trips to NYC).
Another thing we loved is the breakfast which offers a good variety of food (homemade bread variations, muffins, bagels, granola, fresh fruits...) and that can be taken in the lovely outdoor patio or in the kitchen area (yes, as we said: it really feels like being home!).
Finally, the Chelsea Pines Inn is perfectly located for exploring the city (very close to 14th Street underground station and walking distance to Greenwich village, Chelsea market and the High Line Park).
We love staying at the the Chelsea Pines Inn, and will be doing so again as soon as we have the chance to get back to NYC.

Stayed with my father in the Chelsea Pines Inn for some days. We both did like the place.Well, there is no elevator; for me this was no problem, but for others it maybe exhausting walking up to the fourth floor. The breakfast was nice and you could take beverages and food from the kitchen during the day. Most of the guys working there were simpathic and helpful. one of them was quite ignoring, but all the others helped us with sighseeing, maps and taxi to the airport.
the price is high for sure, but quality is good. I felt comfortable there (other guests, interior), even though I normally travel quite cheaper. it is no snobby place, and that is what I liked about it.
location betwenn chelsea and meatpacking district is also great.

Room Tip: Rooms to the street are of course much louder, we had to sleep with windows closed. We had a larger...

When in New York I really cannot recommend anywhere else to stay but this little jewel in Chelsea. From the first moment we walked in we were treated like the many film stars on the wall, like we were the only thing that mattered! Great staff, brilliant location and you really won't find anything better.

The day starts with breakfast heaven including Jay's homemade bread which you must get up early enough so you don't miss it. The many things you can eat just set you up for the day. The chats with guests and staff over a relaxed breakfast is invaluable, you pick up travel tips, local places to eat etc. The staff will book anything for you and no request is too much.

We had the great fortune of being there for gay pride and Jay with his team did not disappoint. Pride party with lovely food right through to pride cupcakes!

Each room is themed around a film star which is fab and we went for a larger suite with seating area which we would recommend. On our last day the team gave us a room later to get ready before our night flight. We cannot thank them enough for that.

Bottom line is this is great value for money, is right by the subway, close to all areas of interest and the staff are great. Best place to stay in NY.

The jewel in the crown though was Charlie the cat who makes your stay even more homely. Go and enjoy!

My friend and I have started a tradition over the past few years of meeting up in NYC in the summertime, she's from Toronto and I live in Alabama. We've stayed at a few other hotels in New York but none of them even come close to Chelsea Pines Inn. As the other reviewers have mentioned, the staff at the Chelsea Pines Inn make you feel so welcome right from your first walk through the door. The town even takes on a whole new feeling when you get the local recommendations from Jay and his staff. We knew that whenever we had questions about the neighborhood the staff would more than willingly help us out. And, we were both excited to share our daily experiences in the big city at the end of the day with the staff. It was so much fun to get their take on all of the things that we had encountered during the day. All of this was in addition to the more than comfortable room accommodations and the wonderfully yummy daily breakfasts on the outdoor patio. We will go back without question.
