“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We have never felt compelled to write a review before but the 7 nights stay we have just had at The Chelsea Pines is the best reason to do so.
From the moment we arrived on the Saturday night to the time we left a week later we has such wonderful service from all staff - from the lady on reception to the young chap sorting out the breakfast stuff. They couldn't do enough for you.
The breakfast was fantastic and always freshly replenished. Daily bread (all manner of different flavours) cooked by the owner owner was a real treat.
Great location, clean and homely. Wouldn't hesitate recommending The Chelsea Pines to anyone. Fantastic!

My sister and I stayed here over the Summer. Simply put, the staff at this Inn makes all of the difference. While the rooms are a bit on the smaller side, they are very comfortable and make for a good night's sleep (btw, you are in NYC, who needs to sleep?).

There is a daily newsletter with suggestions of things to do and places to eat. The staff is more than willing to help arrange tours and offer logistical suggestions (take free Staten Island Ferry for a view of the Statue of Liberty). Their restuarant suggestions (CookShop and Rafael) were spot on.

Location is ideal near subway and High Line. We even walked all the way to Brooklyn from the Inn and back.

Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. NOTE: No elevator so if stairs are a problem, look elsewhere or request first floor.

Room Tip: Ground floor if climbing stairs are a problem.

A two week holiday to celebrtate my first 50yrs booked by my wife. Starting off with 4 nights in this superb boutique style hotel.
Couldn't fault them. Great friendly service, relaxed and welcoming surroundings allowed us to feel right at home from the start.
Chelsea and the surrounding neighbourhoods turned out to be our favourite. Much to see in the area and travel beyond is easy.
They certainly deserve their Tripadvisor rating

My wife, daughter and I visited New York to celebrate my retirement. We had a wonderful time and this was made all the better by staying at the Chelsea Pines. It's in a great location in Chelsea right next to the West Village. The subway is a block away, the Highline at the end of the street and the area has great restaurants if you're staying local any evening. We stayed in a bedroom suite on the third floor (2nd floor for those in the UK!) - two rooms that gave the three of us plenty of space and my daughter some privacy.

Jay has assembled a great team of staff. All friendly and very helpful. A particular mention for Anna, Jason and Troy. The breakfasts are great (we ate in the garden even in October) and coffee and cakes are waiting when you return after a hard day's sightseeing. And free Wi-Fi.

We are always wary of giving recommendations. But if you are looking for a really friendly place with excellent service in a great location downtown then we would highly recommend the Chelsea Pines. Wouldn't think of going anywhere else when we go back to New York.

I would agree that this hotel had excellent service and personnel, as well as a great location. I found the rooms to be VERY small, even by NYC standards - and I stayed in an upgraded room. The bathroom was so small it was hard for even one small person to maneuver. The furnishings were just average. But I definitely enjoyed my stay thanks to the very pleasant service.

First visit to Chelsea Pines to celebrate our Golden Wedding in the big Apple. Warm, welcoming and very helpful check-in after a long flight. Great room with comfortable bed and splendid shower. Plus a surprise; a card, chocolates and flowers! Super breakfast. Central for easy visiting of New York's attractions and easy travel from JFK. What could be better.

I sincerely cannot think of a better place to stay in New York than Chelsea Pines Inn. This was my fifth trip to New York and I wanted to stay somewhere small with a personal touch where we could get to know the staff and ask them about the hidden gems of their city. Chelsea Pines Inn is JUST that place.

Every member of staff was courteous, helpful and took a real pride in making Chelsea Pines Inn a great home for holidaymakers. Jay greeted us with warmth, humour and interest in our impressions of his city, Lewis helped us to find spoken word nights and ukulele clubs so we could indulge in our passion whilst on holiday, Jason kept the breakfast coming every morning, Anna chatted to us about her time in Leeds and it felt like we were all part of the family.

The Inn is beautifully decorated, comfortable and within walking distance of some of New York's gems, The Highline, Chelsea Market, West Village, The Hudson River Waterfront are just a short walk away.

We will definitely come back to Chelsea Pines Inn. Thank you for having us.
