Historical Traveller Reviews of Chelsea Inn Hotel

The breakfast was good and enough for me.
I shared bath with one other room and saw my neighbours only one for 5 days.
Taking into account, that it is not a 4 or at least 3 star hotel, it is good.
a euro type budget hotelfrom subcon48
on the other hand, if you're like me and only consider a hotel room as a place to lay your head, shower and change for dinner, the chelsea inn is almost ideal. the location is excellent btwn 5th and 6th avenues on 17th with access to a wide variety of transit and a pleasant neighborhood to boot.
don't be put off by other complaints about noise. we had a streetside room closer to the splashbar and never had a problem. yes, there is early morning waste pickup but you're going to get that virtually everywhere in the city.
as to other former complaints: we found the staff to be fine. just be aware that there is only desk service btwn 9am and 9 pm (and sometimes that's flexible); the little breakfast spot owner was very nice to us and it's a nice little added amenity (again, in the euro budget hotel sense) that gets the day off to a pleasant start (we ate our breakfast in union square park each day); the rooms are NOT dirty. they are cleaned daily. just because they weren't decorated by laura ashley doesn't mean they're not sanitary.
the only real problem worth noting is the lack of an elevator. the stairs are steep, narrow and slightly out of level. if you have a health problem which precludes fairly vigorous exercise, either request the lower two floors or stay elsewhere.
in sum, the chelsea inn is a great little budget hotel extremely well located. if you don't spend your time hanging around the hotel room, this is the place for you!
I had no problems....from Carialle
Convenient Chelsea Inn - but still not cheap!from kimyarla
Nice placefrom Evan06
The room had a small closet with a couple of hangers but if you have more than one or two things to hang, you might want to bring your own hangers. There was also a small hotel safe in the closet for valuables.
The TV cable brings in only local channels (no CNN, Weather Channel, etc.) but that's ok given the price of the room (about half the average rate of a hotel room in NYC). A single room is not especially huge and is not suitable for entertaining, but I got a glimpse of the double room that I shared my bathroom with and it looked substantially larger.
A coupon for coffee/tea, pastry, and fruit/juice is provided for morning breakfast at "Nana's Place" - a small morning-only place in the basement of the Chelsea Inn.
The Chelsea Inn is walking distance to multiple subway stations at 14th St. & 6th Ave. as well as Union Square. The 'L' line goes through the 14th St. and 6th Ave. station making cross town travel convenient. Union Square hosts a nice farmers market on Saturday mornings - including art. There's a diner around the corner on 6th Ave. near 15th St. that's good plus a pizza place, convenience store, etc. nearby. A Japanese sushi place called "Edo" was east on 17th St. a couple of blocks. The Rubin Art Museum is on 17th St. between 6th and 7th Aves. There's an HSBC ATM at 14th St. and 6th Ave. The Chelsea Piers workout club is on 23rd St. and 12th Ave. - a relatively short walk up 6th Ave. to 23rd St. to catch the M23 crosstown bus westbound. Penn Station is easy to reach by subway or by cab. Go out to 5th or 6th Aves. to catch a cab quickly though.

Top Local Tips for New York City
World Trade Centre site Go to the Twin Towers site, I cried, it is so amazing to see how big the site is, it was only when I went there that I understood more about the grief and the wound that America must have felt. The memorial is really worth going to as well - so respectfully done.
The original Winnie the Pooh If you're traveling with kids (or if you're a Winnie the Pooh fan yourself), you might want to check out the original Winnie the Pooh teddy bear, given to the REAL Christopher Robin--along with Tigger, Piglet, Eyore, etc. They're all on display across the street from MOMA at the Donnell Library Center, on the 2nd floor in the children's section. My kids had fun reading books for a while here after a half day looking at art at the MOMA. Here are the facts: Donnell Library Center, 20 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019-6185, 212.621.0618
M60 bus line If you get out of Laguardia airport,depending on how many you are, go to transportation help desk (they have many location in the airport) they will help you for freen and give you all the maps you need for free.
