We've stayed at three of the gay friendly boutique guesthouses in this area of Chelsea and the story is very much the same. The location is excellent. Less manicured than Soho, low level, great community feel, eateries everywhere and relaxed bar scene. I would always plump for this area of Manhattan. However, there is room for improvement with these guesthouses. Shabby chic is one thing but substandard showers, for example, are just irritating. There was no baths in these rooms so they really need to provide a decent shower. These were not retro - they were just old. Humidity was an issue and even though we were asked not to keep the aircon on while we were out, we did. It was the only way to get a decent night's sleep. All that said, the management were very friendly - we had no problem with rudeness. The cleaning staff couldn't have been nicer. And we would consider going back. But just spruce up the rooms, improve the aircon, dust a bit more thoroughly and get new showers. Then I'll be a convert.
