My family stayed here twice on two different trips to New York and it is now our hotel destination when visiting the Big Apple. Great location in Chelsea just two blocks from the subway and two blocks from the High Line. Its a short subway ride to everything: Brooklyn Bridge, Theater District, Central Park, etc. The staff is extremely helpful... More

Do not get the smaller room too too small, splurge and get the private bathroom well worth it. They use a very affordable car service to the airport , warning though... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
