Reviewed 1 April 2012

All the positive reviews say it all! Friendly staff, great breakfasts, good room. The location is perfect with the subway/tube being only 30 seconds down the street. 15 minutes walk puts you in the heart of Times Square and the city. The staff were all very friendly and approachable and even went out of their way to explain sites on local maps. We were in New York to celebrate our anniversary and were quite surprised to be greeted one night by a great bunch of flowers from the staff. Breakfast was never a disappointment with freshly baked cornbread and other pastries being available. Our room was on the ground floor so we did get a bit of street noise (nothing unexpected) but there was an electronic sleep aid which we turned on and hummed away to drown out any noise so it was never a problem. The room was spacious, clean and fresh. Aircon and a personal safe were also provided. Next time we're in NYC, this will be the place to be!

Room Tip: Being on lower/ground floor avoids any stairs. Go for the Superior Deluxe 2 if you want loads of spa...

Thanks to the many positive reviews, I took a chance on this hotel. My husband and I loved it! The location is perfect, right near the Chelsea Market, the High Line, Meatpacking district....and the subway just down the block. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. We were very lucky to be in the room with the latest updated bathroom, which was beautiful. As a native New Yorker who moved to Europe many years ago, I felt at home in this hotel. We're definitely coming back again and again!

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter. There's no elevator, so make sure to tell them if you need a roo...

Great location. Warm, friendly staff. Comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. 'Nuff said.

Room Tip: Not a bad room to be had, but ask the staff for advice.

There is a reason this hotel is so popular. . .it excels in every way! It is quiet, charming, and meticulously clean. Super location with the subway just down the block. We tried several of the recommended neighborhood eateries and were pleased. We especially liked the Chelsea Market a block or so away. The hotel's complimentary breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and we loved the daily newsletter which gave great tips on things going on in the city that day (real insider tips!). Best of all are Jay and his staff who made us feel welcome and comfortable during our stay in New York.

I was looking for a place to stay with my daughter on a 18th birthday treat to New York city. The Chelsea Pines Inn offered great value with a two bed suite being offered at the same price as a International bog standard hotel twin room....and continental breakfast is included! It all just got better when we arrived. Jay, one of the owners was incredibly helpful and informative with lists of places to eat and things to see locally other than the standard tourist sights. The rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room was very clean and brightly decorated with big vintage movie posters and pictures.
The hotel is in a good location between mid-town and down-town, with subway on the corner of the block. We actually used the busses so we could have a good look around the city while getting around.
I would highly recommend the Chelsea Pines Inn to any one heading to New York!!!

This was my first visit to Chelsea Pines Inn, although I have stayed at several large commerical chain hotels in the city previously and I shall return to the Inn in the future. CPI is a gem of a find for many reasons but all connected to the staff and customer care. The receiption staff are all very attentivie and were very helpful from the start in making sure I had all the information required to make your stay enjoyable. The local knowledge on where to eat I found particulalrly helpful. The rooms were confortable and as the reader will galther by now, there is a theme with old movie posters and stars from the hollywood hayday which makes them place have a certian charm. The service staff were excellent and were very professional in their work, I always returned to find my room in an immaculate condition. The breakfast is more than adequate to set you up for a days work / play and the location is great for tourists or business travelers alike, as the subways lines are very closely located and to walk out and explore the local area, it is perfectly situated.

I would recommend first time or experianced travllers to the city to try a visit to CPI. After five days at the Inn I really felt at home at the place and the staff were like old friends who did everything possible to make my stay as perfect as possible. Bravo Chelsea Pines Inn.

Room Tip: Garden facing rooms may be quieter than those on 14th Street?

My wife, my son, and I spent four nights at the Chelsea Pines Inn and we were delighted by everything about our stay--the immaculate room, the delightful room (the Rock Hudson, it was), the great location (subway station at the end of the block; the Village across the street, and Highline just down the way,, and all of Chelsea at our feet). Best of all, though, the staff of the Inn: they are as friendly and helpful as any hotel staff we've ever encountered, anywhere. We'll to back, next time we head to NYC.
