I stayed here with a friend for a girls weekend and we were very happy and impressed with the room. There are many photos already up but the design really does make the small space seem large: my favorite is the one-way glass that forms the wall between the shower and the bedroom so that the person in the shower can see the bedroom but the person in the bedroom can't see in the shower - gorgeous and playful way to not loose space on an actual wall!!
The attention to detail in the room was lovely - high end snacks that seemed to be sourced from the local Chelsea Market - robes, slippers, turndown and chocolate at night - the staff was cheerful and courteous. The only issue we had was with the service promptness (or lack thereof): they forgot to bring our bags up after two phone calls and an hour wait - I finally went to retrieve the bag myself and we gave up waiting for ice for the room - then at the rooftop the waiter actually seemed to forget about us so after 15-20 min I left the table to retrieve someone - this is the reason for 4 not 5 stars from me. My friend and I are pretty relaxed people so we were just amused at the service issue but I feel others might have been more irritated... Otherwise the rooftop is incredible - amazing views! Be aware that the pool apparently hosts a DJ dance party after 3pm (maybe just on weekends?) so it's not the tranquil vibe you would think from the photos after that time! The location is perfect - walkable to Penn Station, situated right under the high line - being in Chelsea is a great way to experience a NYC neighborhood vibe while still being accessible to all the sites - I loved it!
I would say this hotel is best for adults, esp couples, and would definitely come back:-)
