Bottom line, I would not hesitate to return to Hotel 309 on my next NYC trip. Upside: Clean, comfortable bed with mini-fridge, coffee maker & microwave; spectacular location with ACE/L subway 1/2 bl away, plentiful cabs, convenient to Penn Station, nr nightlife & excellent restaurants all at a cost about 1/2 what other hotels in the vicinity would charge. Downside:... More

I stayed here at the end of July 2010 and picked the hotel due to its great location (14th and 8th, right next to the A/C/E subway line) and its price ($145/night for a private room/bath). In short, I will never stay here again. Despite the location, the hotel is a glorified dump. There is no elevator, and my room... More

I was very hesitant when booking a stay at 309 due to some mixed reviews, but after the weekend in NYC i would stay here anytime. It is pretty much a low cost no frills studio apartment type hotel. Think a step above a hostel. The room and shared bathroom were clean, the staff friendly, and location was perfect.

This apartment style room was perfect for our needs. There is good electronic security on the front door and strong locks on the room door and it was neat and clean.

Our purpose for the trip was to visit NYU, and this hotel worked for us because 1) it was walking distance to Washington Square Park, and 2) it didn't cost much ($99/night), which leaves us more money to pay for tuition next fall.

Staying in Chelsea

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.
