... br> Day two we hopped on the subway - which I might just say here - is certainly the dirtiest we have yet come across. Dingy and humid - there are no walls protecting you from the rails (which is fine, but after all the Asian ones we'd been on it was certainly a different atmosphere.) No protecting walls makes it super loud and made it a bit scary when it was packed with people as it would be just so easy to fall over the edge. It took a little bit of getting used to! It's also ...

Hmmm..what to expect - I'm not really sure but I am sure excited. I used to travel so much in the past, always planning spur of the moment adventures (spontaneous, eh? eh?) and always thriving on experiencing and seeing new things! Plus, in this case, I get to cross the ENTIRE country..the plains, farmland, vast flat lands where the deer and the antelope play. When ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn on 23rd New York City
It was our first visit to NYC, and we were so glad that we decided to stay at the Inn on 23rd. The staff (especially manageress Paola) were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and bed exceptionally comfortable. Breakfast is held in the library, which is a bit like a massive living room, with freshly baked delicious muffins (baked by students of the Cookery classes held downstairs), bagels, delicious fruit salad and other breakfast stuff available. You can help yourself throughout the day to whatever is in the library, such as fruit and chocolate. There is a fabulous grocery store called Garden of Eden across the road from the hotel, which has the biggest range of delicious food I have ever seen in one place! We had a lovely picnic in our room! The central location is brilliant - we were able to walk or take a very quick cab ride to most places. I highly recommend the Inn on 23rd!
Wonderful I enjoyed my stay at the Inn on 23rd St. Annette and her friend Suzy were so friendly that I felt at home. The hotel offered not only a lovely atmosphere, it offered many conveniences such as a reasonably priced honor bar. The breakfast included some of the freshest fruit that I have tasted. I would recommend this inn to anyone.
Friendly, cozy and well-located
The beds are so comfy, I slept better than I do at home! The staff is really friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is very cozy. Located near subways, we never needed a taxi to go anywhere.
A big fan of the Inn on 23rd.
The Inn on 23rd is a fabulous NYC surprise. Located in lovely Chelsea area near subways and buses, it is an easy walk to Penn Station and the Village. With 14 lovely guest rooms, each with a different theme and it's own private bathroom, the Inn provides a lovely respite from the frenzy of the City. Breaksfast provided by the New School's Culinary Arts Program includes warm muffins, fresh fruit and yogurt, cereals, juices, coffee and teas. The Innkeeper, Annette Fisherman and staff have dotted every " i" and crossed every " t " to ensure that guests have a memorable experience. They offer tips and maps and advice for sightseeing as well as umbrellas and passes to many museums. I highly recommend the Inn on 23rd. on your next trip to NYC. PS Data ports provided in each room for business travelers. All phone calls..both local and long distance are free!
Loved the Inn on 23rd
This is the second time we have stayed at this B&B in Manhattan. It is almost like family. The rooms are interesting...not your typical hotel rooms. The breakfast is in the Library, the second floor. It is a nice quiet place to bring people (we visisted with friends before and after the theater)One night we didn't want to go out to dinner. Across the street is a grocery that will put together gourmet meals. We got dinner and ate it in the Library. The location in Chelsea is great. It is only half a block from the subway at 6th and 23rd. We were in the middle of Broadway plays within minutes.The people are great. The service is great. The location is great.
Inn On 23rd is 1st in my Heart!!!
I recently came to NYC for my first time. I stayed at the INN on 23rd B&B...It was soooo lovely. It feels like a B&B but it has everything a business class hotel would have. I especially love the library! What a comfort...I did NOT expect this from NYC. And most importantly, their are culinary classes in the hotel that are always baking muffins and things like that, I couldn't resist. This place is definetly a diamond in the ruff
Relaxing retreat from the city
We recently spent nearly a week at the Inn on 23rd and really liked it.
We normally stay in Times Square, so this was a nice break from all the hustle and bustle. The Inn was well cared for and very clean, with beautiful appointments throughout. Our bed, a queen, was sooo comfortable and also had nice linens. The bathroom was spic and span and had very nice toiletries. Each morning a delicious continental breakfast was served in the beautiful library on the second floor. We were fortunate enough to breakfast with the Inn's owner, who lives at the Inn, several mornings. She's a delightful lady who makes her guests feel right at home. I would definitely recommend the Inn to my friends.
Well, the first half is right. There are beds. Breakfast is another matter. Weekend breakfast is served until 10:30, but when we went to the dining room at 9:45, there was one sad-looking muffing and one bagel, beyond some fruit and cold cereal. I complained to a woman I believe was the owner (she did not identify herself during our stay) and she looked surprised. When I went back up to the dining room, even the bagel and muffin were gone, not to be replaced. Coffee was lukewarm and not plentiful. As for the free wine and cheese between 5-7pm, we went at 6 to find scraps of cheese (and a scraped out wrapper from Boursin) and mostly empty bottles of wine. This place did not have the friendly atmosphere one one expect of a B-and-B. You can do much better getting a beautiful room (with wonderful amenities) at a place like the Sofitel for a little over $150 a night on weekends and then using the difference (over $40!) on a nice breakfast or brunch for two at a restaurant. You'll be much happier. There's no reason to stay here unless it's imperative that you be in the Chelsea neighborhood. This place was a real disappointment.
Brilliant quirky mini hotel
This bed and breakfast (well its not really just that) was recommended to me by a colleague. It is truly excellent. Innkeeper and her staff were friendly and helpful. Amazingly large rooms and bathrooms and centrally situated. Breakfast included, plenty of it, and a fair selection. Rooms all unique, tea and coffee and fruit always available. Microwave if you want to cook and a refrigerator for your essentials. Would recommend it to anyone. Do try it.
Country B&B in NY City
Hesitate I am to tell the world about this lovely downtown retreat. Although located on a busy street, once you walk through the doors, you escape all the noise, and find a comfortable, at-home atmosphere. Where in NY is there an honor bar for late evening wine or fresh muffins in the morning in a great sunny room? Rooms are spotless, host so very welcoming. It felt like I was staying at a friend's house in the country for the weekend, with New York City steps away.Great restaurants in area. A great and reasonable get-away!!
