Room was extremely tiny, the bed is maybe 14" off the ground and there is really no other comfortable furniture in the room so you are stuck with the bed that you have to climb up and out of. The bathroom is huge, which is very nice. Very large shower stall. The staff was polite, no issues there. The room...

This was my second stay and it was even more amazing as the first. People remembered me from a year ago, they made me feel welcome and looked after. The rooms are always spotless and looking fresh/new. The front desk is efficient, Joseph the concierge is truly one of a kind. He always went out of his way to look...

My Bf and I had an amazing stay at the dream. It was my BF's B'day weekend and all thanks to Jane Sriprayul (director of rooms), she made it an amazing weekend for us. She had a yummy bottle of Proseco waiting for us along with a beautiful fruit plate! Checking in with Ray at front desk was a breeze...

The staff are beyond helpful. they can't do enough for you and are so friendly. The rooms are spotless, with the MOST comfortable beds you will...

There is a nightclub in the hotel with music blasting until 3:00 AM. Impossible to sleep the music so loud. There are 'noise machines' in the room but they do not work. What's worse than staying up all night is they won't refund the cost of the room. TERRIBLE place. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Rooms were kind of cool but very small! Very loud at night time, did not like the fact that even though u stay as a guest in the hotel you need to make a long line in order to go to the rooftop during the weekends. Obviously this was very disappointing considering you are paying over 300US for an OK...

I've always visited this hotel for the lounge and rooftop but first time staying in a room. Rooms are tiny. Bathrooms are large. We had a room facing a building so it was awkward during the week when we would step out into the balcony to have employees across from us staring. The lounge in the lobby is great and...

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
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 City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
