We are planning a fall trip and I'm leaning towards Chelsea as where I'd like to stay this time around. We're foodies, enjoy galleries, love walking, I haven't spent time in that neighborhood, and it seems like a fun spot to base ourselves.
After recently buying and renovating a house, we're looking to save money where we can, so thinking of making some "reasonable" sacrifices on hotel quality.
We have a few Starwood points. Enough to get us one free night at some (not all) of the Starwood Manhattan hotels. The most appealing for location are
Four Points by Sheraton Chelsea (can get a King room)
Four Points Soho
Sheraton Tribeca (but non-free nights will probably cost us more)
Any thoughts on whether FP Chelsea is a dismal or reasonably decent choice? I've read reviews, but just wanted forum input (or warnings!). If one of the other hotels is much nicer for some reason, then I'd reconsider.
For context, we're thinking that it will be a 4 day weekend, first weekend of October. Pricey I know, but not quite as pricey as some of the other dates around that time, and it works for other scheduling reasons.
Thanks for any input. Now, I seem to remember Ziggy posting a link his Chelsea restaurant guide. Not sure if I remember that right, but I'll search for it. Or maybe someone can re-post.Edited: 07 August 2013, 23:30
