I stayed here for a weekend on a quick trip to NYC for the heck of it. I would absolutely stay here again. The room was comfortable and clean, the breakfast was delicious and there were several options, and best of all it was in the perfect location. Walking distance to so many awesome places. My one and only negative...

It's a pretty basic hotel.. not the quietest rooms or hallways. But it's a good value for your dollar. And I give them points because my A/C was not working when I checked in and they sent a service man up and he fixed it within an hour..(In my experience some of these smaller hotels don't have 24hr maintenance..) Free...

Needed a reasonably-priced, centrally-located place to stay for three people and was VERY happy with this choice. Excellent double room: adequate space, scrupulously clean and modern with the most comfortable mattresses! Free breakfast was top-notch with lots of fresh and delicious choices but get there early if you want a place to sit. Staff were all very helpful and engaged....

I stayed here for a couple of nights recently and while the room was comfortable and a decent size for Manhattan, the construction in the lobby is kind of annoying. When I checked in, the Key Card device was down and the could not issue a key, so they had a staff member meet me at the room and open...

We stayed at the beginning of April 2017 at this property. It was our second stay here in the last two years. We get a preferential rate. Overall we find the staff to be very friendly/helpful (with one exception). We find it to be clean and pretty quiet (my husband heard people in the hall one night, but over all...

I stayed for a few nights recently. Its very noisy at night so I couldn't sleep until about 1-2am and was then woken each morning around 6am. The lifts are loud, the door bangs every time someone gets out and I was lucky enough to be right next to them. Secondly the other guests were yelling in the hallways AT...

I was really disappointed, ok the location is great and the room are clean but that's it! I would not have booked there if I knew beforehand the hotel was under construction works in the lobby. We only spent a night there then I cancelled my reservation and changed, we did not sleep at all, lot of noises in the...

I recently went with my large family and we rented two rooms on the 15th (really 13th floor). The rooms were clean and consistent with other Holiday Inn Expresses. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were so-so. They offered free continental breakfast and WiFi. Breakfast was standard but seating is limited (especially at 9 in the morning). We found...

Great location, friendly staff! The room is small but it always same in Manhattan area. The hotel need to think about the room's sound insulation, during my stay, the couple next door are very noisy every night.

We just returned from a quick trip to see Eric Clapton at Madison Square Garden. Holiday Inn Express Chelsea is a perfect location for an easy walk to that venue. Our check in went smoothly, Tenille at the front desk was helpful with a suggestion for lunch and offered to call for a driver to the airport early the next...

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.
