“The best Hotel in New York by far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2011

We booked with Chelsea Pines based on the reviews from Trip Advisor and were not let down. An amazing hotel in a great location. Jay, Al, the managers and staff really made our stay the best it could be and were on hand to offer advice for places to go, things to see, where to eat. Just about everything you could need. They even helped us book our travel around the rest of America from recommending how best to get about, where to rent a car for a good price and lots of other advice and research. They really did go above and beyond to help us in our preparation and because of them we had an incredible few weeks. We even booked with them again for the end of our trip because the hotel really was perfect.

Chelsea Pines is like staying in a Boutique hotel without the pretension and cost, crossed with a friends house. It always feels relaxed and friendly. The rooms are wonderful, we stayed in a superior standard and a standard during our stays and both were exceptional. Very roomy with great bathrooms and huge comfy beds. The decor of the classic film stars running through the rooms brought them to life and adds to the hotels quirky personality. Every morning a news letter was posted under the door with an update of things to do and what was happening, a fantastic touch that I have never encountered anywhere else, and one that helps you make the most of your stay.

The kitchen area and breakfast was great, fresh bagels and home made bread every day along with fruit and cereal and much more. Having breakfast in the garden every morning was a great way to start the day and sets you up for a day of exploring New York.

The location is fantastic. Chelsea and Greenwich Village are on your doorstep and are a world away from the tourist centred Times Square. Great places to eat and shop and wonderful things to see like the High Line Park, or Chelsea Food Market. There are a thousand things to do near by that feel like the real New York. And the hotel is a minute away from the subway for when you do want to go to Central Park or tick off the standard tourist attractions, and makes getting to and from the airport inexpensive, quick and simple.

Although the rooms and location are amazing it really is the people that make this hotel what it is, and of course Charlie the cat. I have stayed in New York a number of times in a number of different locations and this is by far the best place I have stayed. This is my home in New York now and I can't wait for my next visit. Book with them, you won't be disappointed.

We had read good things about this place, but we always are a bit suspect that things will life up to their hype. We were pleased that all the things we read turned out to be accurate.

We were greeted promptly and in a friendly manner. Our request for a top floor room was honored (even if it did mean we had to talk up to the fifth floor all the time!), the room was clean and well laid out.

The breakfast/snack area was spotless, welcoming and well appointed - coffee/tea/snacks - and the breakfast (included in our room rate) was great.

It was a close walk to the High-Line park (GREAT!) and the other attractions around Chelsea. We weren't familiar with this neighborhood, but it was a delightful find.

We'll be back!

A wonderful group of hardworking people in a fantastic establishment! My colleague and I came for business but would visit again for pleasure. Easily located in the bustle of Manhattan, where every variety of food, fashion, entertainment, and transportation can be reasonably found. The staff was courteous, knowledgeable, and eclectically delightful. Computer accommodations were on the same floor as our pseudo personal iconic room that over looked an actual back yard and little dining area, where breakfast was made fresh and timely every morning. We left the City and Chelsea Pines with an experience that absolutely rocked.

My wife and I stayed at the Chelsea Pines for 9 nights just before xmas last year. The experience was brilliant from start to finish, and we can't recommend it enough.

The location is magic. There is a subway right outside, but there are so many brilliant spots within walking distance too that you won't always need it. All of the staff are helpful and friendly, and genuinely want to make sure you have a great time in NY. All of their recommendations were great, from food to nightlife to activities. The rooms are always spotless and have a welcoming feel about them - NY is a brilliant city and you can literally lose track of time exploring - but it was great to know we had somewhere comfortable and friendly to come home to.

Would happily stay here again!

fab location, friendly staff, beautifully clean rooms and very good value. visited with 3 friends for a NYC reunion & shopfest. quirky rooms with hollywood themes, not huge but bigger than the Hudson!. generous extras such as free wifi, printers & computer access, cookies & drinks available all day and breakfast until 10am. charlie the cat likes cuddles! Valentine cookies delivered to all the rooms on the day was cute and appreciated. daily newsletters tell you about the area and things to do. would definitely stay again. location was perfect for us - close to all the best independent shops, thrift stores, chelsea market and some great bars and restaurants. we enjoyed a great lunch at the Standard Grill. taxis uptown cost around $12 - same as the subway.

Had a wonderful 6 day stay in New York staying at the Chelsea Pines Inn in January. Decided to stay here after reading the favourable reviews on this site.
Location is great loads of great bars and restaurants in the meatpacking district and greenwich village which is a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of times square. Also only 2 mins walk to nearest subway.
We stayed in the Ann Margaret standard room on the 3rd floor which was a reasonable size (from what ive read elsewhere rooms in NYC are generally on the smaller size). Room was at the back of the hotel overlooking the garden and was nice and quie. Nicely decorated and good quality bedding.
Had breakfast each day in the kitchen diner on the groundfloor, coffee, bagels, doughnuts and home made bread set us up for the days exploring.
What really set this hotel apart from others i've stayed in was the staff who were genuinely friendly and had some great recomendations. Bills Burger across the road was the best burger we had on our visit. Also thanks for the Brooklyn Bowl recomendation which is a great bowling alley in Brooklyn which also has a stage with live music. On the night we went there was a huge salsa band doing covers of arcarde fire and yeah yeah yeahs songs which was brilliant.
Will definetly be returning to the Chelsea Pines Inn on our next trip to NYC.
