I can't tell you how many hours I spent researching a place to stay in NYC. I wanted it in the Chelsea or mid-town area because I had early morning meetings. I wanted some place safe, especially since I was traveling with my son. And I wanted something CLEAN and quiet. Oh yes, I didn't want to spend a ton.
Dupuy's Landing guest house was all that and more.
By the way, I checked out AirBNB and other such places for rooms, but was put off by the tripadvisor reviewer admonitions because I guess these places are frowned upon, if legal at all.
Blaise, the host whose family owns the Dupuy building, was very nice. We stayed in room 1A, a huge room for NYC standards, for 2 nights. Check out the B&B website to see accurate photos. The queen bed was super comfortable, the towels plush, we had a tv with plenty of cable choices (made my son happy), a little fridge stocked with oj and organic milk, and wifi.
We had access to the garden in the back, though didn't have time to use it.
The neighborhood is beautiful. The street is very quiet. I know, as we got up early and walked up to the avenues which had plenty of street noise even at 6:00 a.m. The location is close to the 23rd street subway stop.
They have a list of local restaurant favorites though it's tough to choose with so many reasonably-priced options. We ended up eating in the heated courtyard at Pepe Giallo for good basic Italian fare, then had a fun dinner at Venezuelan El Cocotero on 18th St.
In sum: Just book Dupuy Landing!
