“Brilliant end to our Honeymoon”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

This was our second visit to Chelsea Pines after staying previously about five years ago. This time we returned from our honeymoon and stayed in one of the suites. We had a very friendly checkin with recommendations on local restaurants, shops and getting around town. We also didn't need to worry about getting our bags up the stairs which was really helpful.

The room had a seperate living area and bedroom and a very large bathroom and shower which appears to be quite new. There's also a fridge in the room with a wet bar and good storage for clothes. We had an issue on checkin with the airconditioning but Troy and his team ensured that the problem was rectified and that our visit was a pleasure. All the staff really went out of their way throughout our nine nights to ensure we were having an excellent stay.

The breakfast is plentiful, good selection of bagels, breads, muffins, cakes, juice, cereals etc. The kitchen is open until 11pm for coffee and snacks. The location is second to none, located right in the centre of Chelsea, Greenwich and the Meatpacking Districting, a short walk from numerous great restaurants, bars, Chelsea Market and The Highline (a must see). The area has progressed a lot in the last five years and is better than ever and seems to be getting better again.

We came back on our first full day in NYC to a dozen roses in our room as a honeymoon gift and also received another gift on our checkout which was a really nice way to end our stay.

Room Tip: Go for a suite or superior deluxe for extra space

I stayed here in early July, and cannot fault the hotel or the staff (Jubel, in particular). I was travelling alone and having a base like this was brilliant. Sure the room was small but (a) this is NYC and (b) everything in the room was lovely, great quality linens, super comfy bed, and the room was SO quiet! I'll be back, definitely.

I have stayed in hotels all over Manhattan and I will search no more. This is my new home in NYC. Stayed there last month in the Rock Hudson room with a friend and it was roomier than many NYC apartments. Loved the little terrace downstairs, the fresh baked cookies and the cat. And Jay is a delight-- especially his matching tie and glasses.

By all means, check in to the Chelsea Pines Inn.. After traveling to NYC for over thirty years, I finally found the best kept secret!
It's on West 14th in the heart of the meat packing district, the Sky line, and Chelsea... Its walking distance to SOHO, china town and Little Italy...
The Inn is SPOTLESS! Rooms are bigger than you would think for NYC..
Each room has a theme of stars from the past, which makes it even more inviting!
Every morning starting at 7:30, they offer a continental breakfast which is surpasses for sure... Fresh Muffins, home made breads, bagels croissants, peanut butter, cream cheese, butter, assorted jellies, coffee, tea, juices, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit.. even a splash of an English breakfast.. with ham, cheeses, olives.. beautifully displayed.. they have a closed in patio that when you are sitting there, you forget you are in the city... but instead in an English garden...The staff is the bomb! friendly and so helpful... they will suggest restaurants, shopping places, comedy clubs, you ask them... you will get an answer...and when you return from a day out in the big apple, they all want to know what you did and how it went... they are genuine people which makes Chelsea pines a home away from home....
Oh yea, and be sure to look for Charlie the resident cat... he's the best....
Thank you Chelsea Pines for a great 15 day stay.... Cant wait to see you next month!!!
I was traveling alone, so security was a big factor for me.... I felt so safe and welcomed there. I felt like they took me under their wings!

Room Tip: all of the rooms are great! some a bit bigger than others...They are all quiet, cozy, and immaculat...

My wife and I stayed here in July while having 4 days in New York. The location is great – right near a subway stop. While the standard rooms are small, most are in New York and the price was reasonable and it was clean, and comfortable with air-conditioning which was good considering it was really hot in New York when we arrived. Included was a good spread of breakfast each day and coffee whenever we wanted (needed) it. Staff were nice and offered us places to go to eat and explore. We wouldn’t have a problem staying here again.

Room Tip: Try and go close to ground as there aren't any lifts!

The staff and owner Jay make this a great experience. Always a warm greating the the morning and a welcome back at the end of the day. Great breakfast. Had a great experience! Reservation process was smooth. The staff was always interested in what I had done everyday, where we ate and I felt that I was part of a warm family.

The value of Chelsea Pines Inn is not in big rooms nor in swish decor. It's in the daily greeting and chat with owner Jay, the "can't do enough for you" attitude of Rumel and other staff, and the general feeling of being welcomed like family each time you come home at night. These personal touches helped to make our first visit to NYC for our honeymoon a wonderful experience.
As for practicalities:
- ask the front desk and you shall receive - tickets to shows and tours, restaurant recommendations and bookings, suggestions for the best spots all over Manhattan
- it's right on the edge of the Meatpacking District with some amazing restaurants and bars (Pastis and Spice Market were fabulous)
- just down the road is the start of the Highline Park - a peaceful oasis above the street hussle and well worth a visit for unique views of west side living
- great subway access - less than 2 blocks to 3 subway lines which take you directly to Central Park, Liberty and Staten Island ferries, Times Square, Lincoln Centre, Twin Towers Memorial, Downtown, East Village, Brooklyn, Harlem, The Bronx, Queens and JFK Airport.
We stayed for 10 days and cannot imagine a better home-away-from-home in NYC. Can't wait to visit again ... or for Jay to adopt us so we can move in permanently. Thank you Jay and Rumel!

Room Tip: We were in Rock Hudson - a great room but at the top of four flights of stairs. Great to burn calori...
