    Our room was a Superior Deluxe and it was a long generous room painted deep blue with interesting artwork. I enjoyed the street window to watch the world but, of course,streets can be noisy. The fee was good for NY and the staff very helpful. We enjoyed the breakfasts too!

    I have stayed at the Chelsea Pines numerous times over the years. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quirky and comfortable and having a coffee in the breakfast room is a relaxing way to start the day.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Chelsea Pines Inn New York City

    A New York Gem

    from

    After two stays here (April 2000 and October 2004) I cannot wait to stay here again in December 2005. The position is excellent, walking distance to the best parts of the city- the village, Soho, Tribeca, MPD, Chelsea, etc,etc...... The rooms are more than adequate and spotlessly clean, the continental breakfasts are good (coffee all day too) the staff are friendly and most are helpful.

    If you are not after 4 or 5 star, this is the place to stay.

    Love this place

    from

    My partner, who has asthma, and I stayed there last week. We booked a NONSMOKING room and have to disagree with the last post. There was no oder of smoke anywhere except in an enlosed porch area set aside for smokers. The room was clean, comfortable and had great decor. The staff was extreamly helpful and accomodating. I know that they had smoking and nonsmoking rooms so I booked a nonsmoking one. As there was nosmoking allowed in the common areas there was no smoke odor. all in all a lovely place.

    Stale smoke makes Chelsea Pines Inn lose its appeal

    from

    With New York's new clean-air laws brightening up breathing prospects throughout its restaurants and bars, it's sad to see this interesting inn held back by stale smoke. Stacks of ashtrays encourage smoking in first floor common areas indoors and in the room. This annoying nod to the past tarnishes amenities which would otherwise shine brightly: a cozy breakfast area , internet access station and patio. The inn has character, efficient friendliness, subway-convenient location and some nice touches such as free local calls and even a weather and entertainment report slipped under the door each morning. Watch out for scalding water in the bathroom, though.

    Inn the middle of everything

    from

    Want to see all the sights while in the city? Stay at the Pines! Just a few steps from the hotel door on 14th street is a subway station, buy a metro card there for full access to the NY subway system. Times Square, Central Park, Ground Zero...anywhere in just minutes! Also Crosstown Busses on 14th street. At night, enjoy the heart of gay New York along Eighth Ave or a short walk through The West Village to Christopher St. From the time I booked my reservation until I left for the airport, I found the staff to be friendly, fun, and efficient. My room was an economy queen, reasonably priced and very comfortable, it was a fifth floor walkup, so if you have a problem with stairs, ask them for a lower floor room. If I can sightsee all day and then go out and about at night and still climb steps, you probably can too.

    Always a good stay

    from

    I visit New York for business 6 to 8 times a year. I Always stay the the "Pines". The staff is frindly and more helpful than many of the chain hotels. Service is as good or better than some of the midtown hotels (which charge 50% to 100% more). Sure it is a small place, so sometines there might be something lacking that you would find at a large hotel, but the care and effort the staff takes more than makes up for it. They even lent me a laptop to check my e-mail (no charge).

    B + B from hell 4/3/04 - 4/10/04

    from

    If you like kitchily dated remodels, truly cramped facilities (such as, the lavatory in the room was in a niche so narrow that your shoulders won't fit!), the smell of stale smoke, you'll LOVE this place. Added benefits - 24 hour racket from the street, uncontrollable "climate control," and a bumbling and incompetent staff - who managed to screw up our reservation, and "evicted" us the day before our flight home (while we were out sightseeing!), happily issuing a credit. Phew!

    What a fantastic place!!!!

    from

    Chelsea Pines Inn is an absolutely wonderful property and i would highly recommend it.I stayed in a Queen room with shower and sink.A shared toilet.The facilities in my guest room were great.Very clean,comfortable and well maintained.A real home away from home.The guest lounge/kitchen is a great asset to the Inn.Continental breakfast is served here daily.Great coffee,juice and a superb selection of donuts,toast and juice.The staff are fantastic.Extremely helpful,courteous and willing to go out of their way to help.Being my first time to New York they were fantastic.Giving me lots of tips.Overall my whole experience at Chelsea Pines Inn far exceeded my expectations.I have no hesitation in recommending this property and shall certainly stay with them again.To Jay and his wonderful staff I cannot begin to tell your how fantastic you all are.I thankyou from the bottom of my heart.I look forward to staying with you again in the summer.

    Disappointed

    from

    We were rather disappointed. The room itself was fine (if a little overheated!) the breakfast was good but the thing that was lacking was the human touch. The only member of staff we saw was behind a window in a booth. Although efficient, I would hardly say he was welcoming - there was no attempt to have any sort of contact with the guests.

    Breakfast was self service so no contact there either. One evening we came back to find the door of our room open - when we pointed this out to the member of staff on duty his first reaction was to blame us - "you must have left it open" - when we pointed out that the room had been made up while we were out he just said - "I'm sure nothing's missing" - no apology was forthcoming! The thought that crossed our minds was why bother to come to a gay hotel if you are treated with the same indifference as everywhere else!

    Had a Lovely Time!

    from

    Okay, it's not the Hilton, but you knew from the price it wouldn't be, right? As a woman travelling alone, I found this a cozy and friendly little inn. The staff were WAY friendly and helpful. I asked for a room with private bath ($10 more), and although everything in general was small and somewhat cramped, what in Manhattan isn't? To sum up, the room was nothing spectacular, but the staff were great and made up for any other shortcomings.

    Oh, and Charlie the cat is also great.

    They call it an Inn

    from

    I was In New York last week with a Friend, We Booked in to the Chelsea Pines Inn And All I can say is what a dump! the room That we were given was well lets say not the best. We had to share the toilet with the other floors, not good at all, and to top it all Me and My Friend had to share a Bed After we booked a twin 3 weeks before this, all I can say is if your going to book the Chelsea Pines Inn just to you let you know its a bad B&B

    I walked several blocks to the museum of natural history today which was definitely a mistake as half way around the museum I was in need of a wheelchair - my feet were not happy. As with everything here, the museum is huge. It was also fascinating. They had a slice of a tree trunk of a giant Redwood on display - it was over 1300 years old when cut down in the late 1800s and took 3 weeks to cut down with axes. Many other interesting displays tho I confess my feet were ...
