About Chelsea Inn, New York

Two adjoining 19th-century townhouses make up the Chelsea Inn, so you'll experience historic Chelsea while being surrounded by all the shopping, dining, and art that makes modern Chelsea such a popular destination. The area is filled with 19th-century brick townhouses and iconic office buildings like the Flatiron Building, just 6 blocks away. Tree-lined Madison Square Park, a 10-minute walk, is a perfect spot to people-watch while enjoying a burger from the immensely popular Shake Shack. Chelsea is also the center of Manhattan's art scene, especially along 10th and 11th avenues, where hundreds of galleries line the streets. 3 subway lines within a 4-block walk have trains that connect directly to Times Square, Central Park, and Fifth Avenue shopping, all within a 20-minute ride.

Guests can check their email from anywhere in this intimate 33-guestroom hotel with the complimentary wireless Internet access.

The Chelsea Inn offers the intimacy and charm of a boutique hotel with the budget-conscious traveler in mind. These cozy rooms with city and courtyard views are equipped with cable TV, compact refrigerators (on request), phones with voicemail, and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms are stocked with bath products and a hair dryer. And keep in mind that this is a classic New York walk-up building: stairs, but no elevators.

Very Good8.0
A quiet spot in Chelsea.
I found the hotel to be quite nice. More interesting to stay in a renovated older Chelsea building than in a built for purpose new hotel. The decor was good. Room very clean and quiet. Be aware that it is 5 storeys tall and has no elevator. The staff noticed that I am older and put me on the second floor and carried my luggage to my room. The lounge on the ground floor with complimentary coffee, tea and lemonade was appreciated. It is very close to the Metro - 3 short blocks - and also a short walk to the Chelsea Market/bottom of High Line to the west and Union Square to the east.

Spend a little more and stay somewhere else.
We had the door at the front. Very loud with people talking outside due to two restaraunt until about 2am. As the window was broken and fixed with plywood and plexi all noise came in. There was duvet cover. We had to ask for a sheet as that was missing too. At least we did get a sheet to seperate the naked comforter/duvet and ourselves. The maid stood outside our room and chatted loudly at like 7am for about 30 min. For about 200/night I guess this is pretty good for NY in may? I would rather pay an extra hundred and get better rest. Day guys at the front were nice enough. Showers were decent. Otherwise clean.

Great place and location. Very clean and renovated. Main issue is no elevator we we're on the 5th floor. 1 drinking water dispenser on the 3rd floor wasn't working half the time of our stay.
