There are still some people living here protected by rent laws, but the hotel does not accept new reservations. There are plans for it to re-open after extensive re-modeling in 2018. The management has removed all of the art work for preservation reasons, and perhaps to encourage tenants to move. Move along, folks, not much to see here any more....

I didn't come for a 5 star experience, I went after Leonard Cohen passed away. Many nights I fell asleep listening to him sing Chelsea Hotel and my heart aches for him and a generation I wish so badly to have been a part of. I rode the elevator imagining the encounter, and slept in the bed with their ghosts...

It is completely different to any place I have stayed in before. The room was larger than most with failed aspirations of grandure and a few homely touches you'd find in run-down motels. Staff were really helpful and the art throughout the hotel, especially in the stairwells was really interesting. Good restaurants nearby (including the spanish one next door) and...

Went to see this iconic spot. The front desk guy said they would be closed till 2018 for reservations. Very cool looking building from the outside. Inside the lobby was just blah. Hopefully renovating will make an improvement.

Clean rooms, pleasant staff, good basic breakfast, and located in the wonderful neighborhood of Chelsea. Close walking distance to cafes, subway, Highline and the Flatiron building. Staff was organized (breakfast tickets) and attentive, refilling coffee and breakfast items quickly. Friendly clientele made it easy to socialize with several international people I met there. Bathrooms cleaned daily. Nice common area with...

When our history curbed by evil and self-protective intentions, we all be forced to experience to follow a tough course if only you are sensitive enough to other people.

The hotel is very located and i have to say give an old school feel to what hotels have been in the past. If you every want to be close to the action and pay a rate which is fare then this is the place to travel too. Try and stay in a room which is as high as possible...

The Chelsea was my home for two years, 1969-1971. My children sometimes stayed over in their own room. My daughter baby sat for the likes of Viva. Yes, it had cockroaches. All of New York does. And the bathroom for my room was down the hall. I had running water in a sink. A rating does not count because the...

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
