    No elevator for us old guys. Clean room, but noisy side of building facing 7th Ave. Dated interior and no desk to work at. Went to Starbucks even though they offer free wifi. Good value for money. Might stay here again for just one night.

    Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
    brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
    popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
    jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
    contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
    neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
    every night of the week and countless exhibits to
    explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

    Sorry we arrived by train so don't know the best way. However, do be aware tat if you come in by train to Penn station it is only one block away from the hotel. Also as a hotel I do not recommend it.
