I stayed in Colonial Guest House for six nights recently. It was an excellent little spot. I was there for leisure, and it was a great location for everything I wanted. The front desk was always really friendly, and although I didn't spend much time there, the communal dining area was very cosy. The room was clean and well maintained,...

Highly recommend this wonderful Bed and Breakfast - a home away from home. Situated in a fantastic location in Chelsea close to the High Line and within walking distance of Times Square and many restaurants, bars and shops. The subway is moments away making every attraction accessible. But it is the warm welcome and atmosphere that makes this establishment special....

Great hotel in a great, lively part of New York City: good restaurants, stores and bars nearby. A nice breakfast included. Happy hour with free drinks and snacks. Clean rooms, and very friendly and helpful staff. We had a wonderful time here!

I have stayed at the Colonial House Inn almost annually since 1972. The accommodations are comfortable and the staff goes out of the way to make sure you have all you might require. It is in a part of NYC where I lived from 1969 to 1972 and makes me feel that I am back home when there.

This B&B is a "landmark" in Chelsea, as I remember it from over 16 years ago. The staff is super accommodating, friendly and helpful. The location is in the heart of Chelsea close to many restaurants and public transportation. The building is old, with uneven floors, and they are tiny (like most other NYC lodging). While the rooms and baths...

The manager and employees of this hotel did everything they possibly could to help us during our stay. Above and beyond! The hotel is clean, good location, reasonably priced. I really can't say enough positive things - although, one caveat, there are A LOT of stairs, so unless you plan to reserve the main floor suite, you're either walking upstairs...

Good location in Chelsea, the service is very nice and helpful. Rooms are basic but pleasant, the Inn has a very comfortable atmosphere. The The roof top terrasse is a perfect and quiet hangout to have a drink after a long city trip. Acoustic isolation is not the best around, but the street is not that busy. We will come...

In all our travels we have never had a booking cancelled on us at the last minute. On arriving in New York after traveling all day we were looking forward to our accommodation. It was Saturday night and New York hotels were almost fully booked. There was a chance of snow. On arrival we were told the booking had been...

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
