Historical Traveler Reviews Chelsea Savoy Hotel New York City
A Pleasant Surprise!
The rate was quite low and the rooms were very surprising! Nice new paint, clean, bathrooms were larger than most... The windows facing 23rd St were rather large. I liked the artwork in the room. Subway is across the street. I felt safe as well. I would stay here again.
I like the fact that the atmosphere at the Savoy is not a pretentious one but the staff is a little too layed back for my taste. The rooms aren't great looking! But the neighborhood is awesome. With plenty of good places to eat, a theater up the block and a nice shopping area on 5th Ave.
This hotel sucks, but it doen't have to
When I arrived at the Hotel the Desk Clerks barely looked up to check me in and the simple check in process took 30 minutes. The room was nicer than I thought it woule be, good size bathroom, etc. My stay went bad on my 2nd night. I called the desk to request a wake-up call @ 5:30 am. I recieved no call and overslept by 3 hours. I would have set the alarm clock in the room had it worked. The Front Desk staff, Manager included could not have been less interested in my complaint. They argued that it is not their responsibility to get me out of bed, and that it was my own fault for oversleeping.I can't imagine a hotel in NYC having such useless people at the desk. It's too bad because the location is convenient and overall it's not a bad place. Just bring a travel alarm clock and xanax because the staff's incompetence is very frustrating.
Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone about this hotel
This place is a gem!
Clean, convenient, and unpretentious and in a very fun neighborhood.
Krispy Kreme donuts is across the street, Murray's authentic nyc bagels around the corner and the Garden of Eden amazing deli right down the street.
Unfortunately, because of sites like this full of reviews, this hotel is getting EXPENSIVE. It used to be cheap. And it is getting harder to get a reservation.
So, I'm changing my opinion to this: The hotel is TERRIBLE. Do not ever stay there. Tell your friends not to stay their. Tell your friends to tell their friends not to stay there. All the more room for me!
I found this hotel to be great find. It has a great location with just a few subway stops away from Times Square and the Village and right in the heart of Chelsea.
The room was clean and the staff was very professional.
I was in NYC for a weekend business workshop. The Chelsea Savoy was recommended to me by the workshop organizer. My room, the hallways and the lobby, were exceptionally clean and odor free. The front desk staff members whom I encountered were friendy and attentive.
Convenient location/clean rooms
Stayed at the Chelsea Savoy from the 12/28/03 to 1/03/04. The location may not look inviting at first, but after touring Chelsea, you find that there are dozens, if not hundreds of rreally really good estaurants and stores on 8th ave, and some down 7th. Also very close to Times Square and other attractions, right at the corner you have a subway line that takes you everywhere within minutes. The rooms were clean, ok sized for New york city, modern looking, nothing special though, just your basics, the bathroom was pretty big for hotel standards. The hallways were clean and housekeeping quick and responsive with requests. We stayed in room 305 which was at the corner facing both avenues, and it was not noisy at all!! Good soundproofing and clean rooms, the only minus is the Front Desk, they do not seem to know anything about New York city, but I used my travel guide so it didn't matter. The lobby is very very small and out of all the nights I stayed there, when I went through the lobby, not once did anybody say hi or acknowledge my presence, even though I said hello. Kind of rude, but again, if you want a basic nice clean hotel room for a good rate, close to almost everything, in a very nice neighborhood (maybe not for kids), this is for you. Breakfast is just made up of bagels and pastries and coffee, right in front of the front desk, but there are really good breakfast places on 8th ave, just a block away.
Wonderful-very convenient,clean,and cost effective
Our stay at the Chelsea Savoy was supurb. The personnel are very helpful and matter of fact. It is a quality place to stay with minimum frills. The hotel has high security with excellent locations to the METRO and PATH. We are looking forward to returning soon. ALEX
If you plan to stay at this hotel be prepared for a front desk staff that is at the best of times completely disinterested in their jobs and quite incapable of providing information about New York City. We were able to get better help from strangers off the street. Double check your room rate when checking in. The rate quoted on the phone when making reservations was considerably different than the rate charged when checking out and this apparently is an unresolvable issue.
The rooms are fine, but don't be surprised to find a maid watching TV in your room when you come back from a tour around New York.
We discovered the Chelsea Hotel just down the street and it seems a much better option in this neighborhood .... at least that's where we'll stay the next time we visit New York.
Clean and Convenient
The Chelsea Savoy is in a great residential neighborhood full of restaurants and shops. The rooms are immaculately clean and the maid service is extremely responsive to requests (i.e. extra linen/towel requests). The room rates were fabulously affordable and made up for the aloof front desk help. We were on a tight travel budget so we got a quad room with two double beds and a spacious bathroom. It was very comfortable for four adults and one toddler (kids stay free). Great view of 7th Ave. for lots of people watching fun.

A grey old day to be travelling, showery and windy, so probably going to be a bumpy ride.
Technology is a wonderful thing, received a message from AirNZ advising that online check-in is open, so gave it a try. Checked in, printed boarding passes so once at airport it's a simple matter of scanning passports and leaving bags at drop off point. …

We were all watching this happen right in front of our eyes and Mum burst into tears from the shock which prompted a lady to ask her if she was related to the man. This was a very shocking and rare thing for us to witness and Dad and I were even interviewed by a news journalist afterwards regarding the incident.

At first we saw a film reflecting on the effects of 9/11, after which we had an iced latte in the cafe. Two 'tridents' from the facade of the towers have been saved and preserved in the museum.

It was forecast for 8degrees tonight so it was lauer up with scarf and beanie. I was still cold! New York is crazy cold. Not as bad as the West Coast but ...
