I came over to New York for the marathon and a holiday. I stayed 12 nights in total at Hotel 309 and would thoroughly recommend it to my friends and I will certainly use it again if I ever need a hotel in New York again. Price-wise it is excellent overall value for money, compared with anything else I looked...

I stayed here on a trip with my partner and it was horrible. It doesn't seem to even be a hotel as there is no reception and I think people live here. The room was horrible and there were about 5 locks on our door (don't know why). We could hear noise throughout the night and we did not feel...

Walking distance to the Village, subway, several places of interest. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful all the time. The rooms are not too big, but for our purpose they where just fine. We had no problems sleeping there because the rooms faced the back side, so very little traffic noise, and no noise from other guests either.

We were on a budget and Hotel 309 was chosen for its room rate so I was not expecting anything other than basic. It is in a fantastic location for getting around easily. The staff, when seen, were friendly and helpful. The photos are a little misleading as the room's decor was underwhelming and the whole place was often far...

We stayed in Hotel 309 for 4 nights in September 2010. The hotel is in a great location, close to lots of shops, bars and interesting sights. It is also very close to the subway so you can get to wherever you want to go quickly. The hotel itself is a budget hotel but it is clean and the staff...

Thanks for taking time to write your review of Hotel 309. Glad to hear that the rooms and bathroom were cleaned and in proper working order. We do strive for this type of excellence.

I stayed at Hotel 309 for 10 nights. Now I've stayed in nicer digs in NY that were a little cheaper, but they were booked out and Hotel 309 still had availability at short notice (probably because its a bigger hotel with more rooms). A few bullet points - They don't have a 24 hour front desk so prefer that...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your Hotel 309 experience. Yes, all the floors in the building are similar, two hallway bathrooms per floor, 6-8 rooms share the two bathrooms.

I stayed here at the end of July 2010 and picked the hotel due to its great location (14th and 8th, right next to the A/C/E subway line) and its price ($145/night for a private room/bath). In short, I will never stay here again. Despite the location, the hotel is a glorified dump. There is no elevator, and my room...

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
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.
