This B&B is a "landmark" in Chelsea, as I remember it from over 16 years ago. The staff is super accommodating, friendly and helpful. The location is in the heart of Chelsea close to many restaurants and public transportation. The building is old, with uneven floors, and they are tiny (like most other NYC lodging). While the rooms and baths...

The manager and employees of this hotel did everything they possibly could to help us during our stay. Above and beyond! The hotel is clean, good location, reasonably priced. I really can't say enough positive things - although, one caveat, there are A LOT of stairs, so unless you plan to reserve the main floor suite, you're either walking upstairs...

Good location in Chelsea, the service is very nice and helpful. Rooms are basic but pleasant, the Inn has a very comfortable atmosphere. The The roof top terrasse is a perfect and quiet hangout to have a drink after a long city trip. Acoustic isolation is not the best around, but the street is not that busy. We will come...

In all our travels we have never had a booking cancelled on us at the last minute. On arriving in New York after traveling all day we were looking forward to our accommodation. It was Saturday night and New York hotels were almost fully booked. There was a chance of snow. On arrival we were told the booking had been...

My family stayed here twice on two different trips to New York and it is now our hotel destination when visiting the Big Apple.

Stayed here for an overnighter when passing through the city. It's hard to find non-chain accommodations at this rate in such a nice neighborhood - so this was a nice find.

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.
