Hilton Garden Inn New York/Manhattan-Chelsea
Ranked #194 of 470 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 October 2010

We planned a 24 hour New York City adventure aiming to stay on a middle class budget while still comfortable for our lifestyle, (no hostels). Looking through TripAdvisor possibilities I was disappointed to find all hotels in the Theater District priced no less than $350 per night. Checking other neighborhoods in Manhattan, I noticed rates dropped quite a bit, that’s when I found the Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea.
My “Value” rating is 5 stars and I agree with most previous reviews while saving at least $100 per night. This $100 bought us two pastrami sandwiches from Katz’s Deli and a pizza after a play at John’s Pizza. There’s a full breakfast for $16.95 each or plenty of neighborhood restaurants, bakeries and fruit stands if you want to save a few bucks.
5 stars for the “Room” category for the larger than normal size and comfortable King Size bed. The bath included 4 large fluffy towels. The room also included a small refrigerator and microwave and two-cup coffee maker.
I rated the “Location” 4 stars instead of 5 due to transportation reasons but this isn’t a big deal. With that $100 savings we also bought a Transit Fun Day Pass on the subway for $8.25 each and rode the one stop to the Theater District. The next 3 trips on the Metro paid for the pass, making the stay at the Garden Inn Chelsea, even more a bargain. Nighttime saw the neighborhood appear on the “seedy” side, however, we never felt threatened.
“Cleanliness” was 5 stars for the room itself. After checking all bedding and dark corners for non existent bed bugs, the room, including a large bath with a marble counter top, was very clean. The lobby and elevator also rated 5 stars.
“Service” rates 5 stars from me as the staff saw my request for a higher, quieter room not facing the street and advised none were ready at 1:00pm when we arrived. Instead of just storing our bag until the room was ready they suggested we try a lower floor, (Room #203). If it wasn’t to our liking we should come back down and they would store our bag until we returned that evening. Room #203 was very comfortable and quiet.
“Sleep Quality” rated a solid 5. We never heard any street noise or hall/elevator noise despite being just steps from the elevator.
We really enjoyed staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea. However now that we’re familiar with the Metro our next visit will find us staying in another borough and saving even more with minimum location inconvenience.

Stayed for a weekend for the US Open and the rooms were very clean and none of us experienced any bugs whatsoever. Check out this hotel as one you can rely on for a comfortable, quiet stay. The staff was great and although the rooms are smaller than some I've stayed in, it had all the amenities.

Three days in NYC. Good location near restaurants, near subway, near Times Square. The street is filled with flower and plant vendors during the day, which makes it very pleasant and bright. At night, the shop are locked down, so it looks a bit dreary. We felt very safe. Would go back,

This hotel is on west 28th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. It is ideally located for the subway and is about a 10 minute walk from the Empire State Building and Macys. It has easy access to Times Square by subway or you can walk (approx 25 minutes). This is a comfortable hotel with clean rooms and reasonably priced for New York. We got a rate that included a full buffet breakfast which was excellent. The cost was $18 each if you had to pay the hotel rate. The hotel is a little noisy but this is to be expected in New York. The staff are excellent and I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

I loved this Hotel! I stayed there for a total of 8 nights summer. *(4 nights one week, loved it, booked again for the next week ).
First of all, I loved where it was located, super close to FIT. It was in a very convenient area to drugstores, restaurants- (Mustang Sallys one of our faves)
It was very clean and nicely decorated,everybody that I encountered who worked there was very, very helpful and gracious. Kudos to ALL of them!
It was nice to have a microwave and a fridge in the room. Comuter room was great to have to check on emails and look up tourist info...

Stayed here with friends over an extended September weekend. The hotel is very close to koreatown. It is about 5 blocks from madison square garden and penn station and is 1 block away from subway stations for the N, R, 1, and 2 lines.

Initially I was a bit skeptical when my friends booked this hotel as all the respectable hotels in manhattan were going for 360-430/night. The hilton garden inn was advertising 320/night was made me suspicious. However, staying at this hotel has swung my opinion and makes a great steal for the money-concious traveler. The hotel has a business center equipped with internet access computers and even a printer that is free for guests. The hotel requires you to swipe your hotel keycard after midnight at the front door, which is a plus for security.

The room was a little cramped which is standard for NYC. We got 2 double beds for 4 adults total. The room had a flatscreen TV and an empty refrigerator for storing leftover food. The bathroom was very nice and didn't feel cramped. I'm glad the rooms had more room dedicated to the bathroom than the actual room instead of the other way around.

For the night owls, there is a rooftop lounge called 230 5th avenue that is about a 6 block walk from the hotel.

This hotel is a great bargain for those wanting to stay in manhattan, but wanting to avoid the pricy hotels in times square.
