We were visiting NYC for the weekend and were searching for accommodations that were reasonably priced, included breakfast, and were located in the heart of the city. The Colonial House Inn is located on a small tree-lined street in the Chelsea neighbourhood of Manhattan, far away from all of the standard tourist traps where you are more likely to pay through the nose.
We were quickly checked into our room upon arrival and were pleasantly surprised with the sufficient space available in our queen room with private bathroom (Room 14) located on the second floor. The bathroom had a sink, toilet, and stand-up shower, and was quite sufficient for our needs. There was a wardrobe in the main room which had several shelves for clothing, plenty of hangers, and a safe. There is also a mini fridge to keep some snacks and drinks cold. To control the temperature there was a window air conditioner which kept the room nice and cool, there was also a real fireplace which made me wonder if they supply guests with firewood during the winter. I was impressed with how efficiently the room was organized to maximize the space.
The bed was quite comfortable and provided a great night’s sleep after exploring NYC for the day. It was nice having the private bathroom available to us, much more comfortable in my opinion than the shared facilities. The breakfast each morning was plenty to get our day started with bagels, English muffins, toast, cereal, assorted pastries, and fruit available. The staff did a great job of ensuring everything remained freshly stocked during the breakfast rush and that hot coffee was always available.
If you want to stay in an authentic place that makes you feel like you are part of the city then this is an ideal location. We were thoroughly pleased with our decision to stay at the Colonial, things couldn’t have gone any better!
