A great location for exploring all of NY. Totally different from your average hotel, large spacious rooms that are quirky and homely. A fabulous breakfast with plenty of choice. If you like modern this is not the place for you, but if you want a really personal service and something different I would really recommend giving it a try.

We stayed in this warm and welcoming hotel for a family reunion. The brick-walled room was finished and furnished to harken back to an earlier time, and was quite comfortable. The dark wood-and-brick library doubled as a morning dining room supplied with fresh baked goods, juice, and other light breakfast faire to ready for the day. The owner Eric and...

This hotel is on a busy street, but quiet. It is discretely located not too far from the main attractions but within walking distance of the cool spots where you can eat and drink. The accommodation is comfy, homely and clean. The staff and owners were excellent hosts and I wouldn't see any reason not to book at this place...

the rooms are styled for the beginning of the 20th century and have a certain atmosphere (it is a pity the blankets have holes or stains). unfortunately the AC is so loud, it is almost impossible to sleep, the rooms have inadequate lighting so it is difficult to read. you cannot open the window because the AC is in it....

This hotel has it all! The rooms are huge - with a sitting area as big as the bedroom, the library is charming, the staff are friendly and the location is ideal for up or down town. It was well-priced compared to other hotels and they were happy to hold our luggage for the day. There are a few vagrants...

We stayed at the townhouse inn as we were looking for a place near Madison square garden comfortable for 3 adults-mom and 2 twenty-somethings. We have spent lots of time midtown and uptown, but this was our time to enjoy the Chelsea and downtown area. The location was perfect. Walkable to all our interests (msg, high line, Madison park) and...

We really enjoyed our short stay at this lovely bed and breakfast. This was my first time in NYC, and I'm so glad we stayed here compared to a big box hotel. It might not have the amenities other hotels offer, but honestly I never use most hotel's amenities anyway. This was a much more personal experience. Eric was so...

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“Don't book a room at this hotel.”
  • Broken furniture (or maybe dumpster dive
  • We're not FANS of dust build-up (enjoy the snow machine)
  • Welcome to your suite (don't bother covering this one up with the faux sheep skin)
  • SHOKINGLY horrendous (Don't like the clanking radiator? But still want heat?)
  • Just gross (carpet everywhere looked like this)
  • Torn blankets (or, another dumpster dive score?)
  • Carpeted lights? Carpeted with dust, that is.
  • Thought we would be looking at a painting, not a carving
