Woke to a very cold (not quite freezing) and grey day - and caught the F Train up to Rockafeller Center to meet Mrs. G who had booked us both onto the New York Photography Safari (I declined the earlier option of The Today Show). Arriving a little early, we embarked on some 5th Ave window shopping to kill time before it started. For the next three …
An early start and out to DFW at 6am to return the car and for me to board AA710 direct to New York's LaGuardia. Flight time just under 3 hours, and a nice flight - with spectacular views of Manhattan as we approached to the East (including Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building). A mad yellow cab ride down FDR Drive (again great views across …
... famous buildings such as Trump Tower. Our tour guide told us that Donald Trump was not there - he was in Paris awaiting the birth of his next wife!!! Haha!
Our tour came to an end. We were all very impressed and, as the weather wasn't great (we'd had a few downpours during the tour, and half the high-rise buildings had been immersed in clouds for most of the day), we decided not to do the night cruise we'd planned to do (plus we did a ...
... 3 broadway shows we saw this week! In terms of sport though, this week we took a behind the scenes tour of Madison Square Garden and also went to a Yankees baseball game in the Bronx, which was so much fun! And now for the broadway review: Once. The Musical - this is a musical based on a low budget movie from 2006 that stole Chrissy's heart. The movie won an Oscar for Best Song "Falling Slowly" and the musical opened on broadway in 2012 and won 8 Tony ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Manhattan Chelsea New York City
We stayed three nights in late June. The hotel has a great location between two subway lines running up and down Manhattan. Easy rides to Lower and Uptown.
For families, rollaway beds do not fit in the smallish rooms, so our youngest had to sleep on a mattress placed on the floor. Also, Chelsea is the new hotspot for the local gay/lesbian community, but the real center of such activity appeared to be a couple long blocks away.
Rooms are smallish. Firm beds were comfortable.
Their idea of breakfast is well below that of Embassy Suites.
We had nothing but good experiences with the staff.
Minor inconveniences but just fine for the price.
What a find in NYC! We stayed there for 2 nights after having tried out some other hotels in NYC and we always have been disappointed... not this time. Ok, it is not the Waldorf Astoria, but a great value. We stayed there a few weeks after opening, everything was new, staff was friendly, breakfast was extraordinary for NYC (never forget where you are). I would always recommend spending a few dollars more for a room with a view (wonderful!!! had a view at the Empire State Building). We loved it and would always return to this hotel. Not to forget, the location. Chelsea is a good place to be, nice restaurants and cafes around, all in all... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I stayed here over a long weekend. After searching for weeks for a decent hotel at a decent price, I chose the Hampton. I was worried that it would be far away, but we walked to most places in the area. It's a long, but nice walk through all of Lower Manhattan, and easier walk North to Times Square, and a block or two to several subway lines. The rooms are small, but who cares. Who comes to NY to sit in the hotel? It is nicely decorated and the staff was quite helpful.
Some odd things made the Hampton Inn stay disappointing
Stayed at the Hampton Inn Chelsea for four days in Mid March, 2004. The room was comfortable, if a little snug, and the services advertised were reliable (breakfast, coffee, high speed internet, etc.) But there was a weird quality to the staff. At check-in, the woman behind the front desk remained on a personal phone call for a full three minutes before putting the phone down to check me in. I had to ask the front desk to have housekeeping take care of my room two times (out of four) because I returned to the room after 5 PM and it was unfinished. For the value and the location, it is a good hotel. But they need some training.
Nice Hotel - Reasonable Price
New hotel. Very clean, rooms on smaller side, but still nice and has free high speed internet and free local calls. Standard Hampton Inn fare. Hotel is located in Chelsea which is an up and coming neighborhood. Lots of stores and restaurants around the corner.
Convenient to many subway lines. If walking back at night cross-town, try to stay on 23rd street, more lighting and people. Price is usally a bargain for NYC, and you get free breakfast.
Stayed at the Hampton Inn in Chelsea for 5 nights last week and was glad I did. I'm originally from NY and know the Chelsea area pretty well - plenty of restaurants and not too far from midtown. I had to go to the Javits Center just about every day during the trip (average fare was about $4.40 plus tip) and had no trouble getting a cab on 6th Ave.
Good value and location
Great value; clean new rooms (small - but expected) and pretty decent location. Good shopping and eating right around the corner. Staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast not too bad - standard Hampton fare, but that still saves $$$. Not too easy to catch a cab - have to go over to one of the avenues, but all in all a very pleasant experience. Would definitely stay here again.
A Great Find in New York
We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Chelsea New York for three nights in January. From the time we arrived to when we left, the staff was very friedly and helpful. The Hotel was very clean and our room had a great view. We were very surpirsed at the breakfast. The quality and choices were very good. It saved us going out each morning and buying breakfast. We would highly recommend staying here. Our only criticism is that the room did not have a safe for personal belongings. Most hotels have this amenity.We will return to this hotel on our next visit to New York.
We stayed in the Hampton Inn for a week while visiting New York recently.
As this seems to be the first review of the Hampton Inn New York Chelsea--I'll be going into quite a bit of detail. Please keep in mind that this is a brand-new, built from scratch hotel--open about two months when I visited. I've never been disappointed by any of the several Hampton Inns I've stayed at in the past. So I thought I would try this new one in New York City and stayed more than a week. My opinion--Okay, not great.
