Doubletree Hotel Chelsea - New York City
Ranked #317 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 21 February 2012

This was our first trip to the Big Apple and I was a bit nervous how it would all go. (Family of 3 from Scotland, UK...we stay in a small village)

I was delighted of our choice of Doubletree Chelsea....and Eva made us feel most welcome. Our request of high floor was honoured...we were on 26th floor and had a good nights sleep. To begin with we did have jet lag that did effect our sleep. I looked out the window and saw a stream of yellow cabs and a view of the Empire State Building. How amazing was that. Yes there are only 2 lifts but we were never really inconvenienced by this. Apparently there are 33000 yellow cabs in N Y. 192 Starbucks in Manhattan. (think that's what the tour guy said) - We saw lots and had lattes in quite a few Starbucks!

Although the room was compact...it had 2 double beds, nicely furnished and most important spotless. The beds were sooo comfy. So thanks to your cleaning team. Again the bathroom was very clean and lovely complimentary toiletries. Towels were super clean, white and soft.

The staff were always courteous and friendly towards us and you felt they wanted us to be having a good time. Any snacks we had from the restaurant were delicious. French fries, grilled cheese sandwich.

We flew from Edinburgh, UK to Newark International.
We got the Air-train, then train to Penn Station...was easy walk to hotel. $12:50 each. Train journey took 25 mins.

Return journey - Frenz? (I think was his name) was great the bell-hop guy and organised a car for us $80 including tips and tolls. Service was efficient and it took under 30 mins to get to the airport. The traffic was very good, We left 3:30pm on Sunday afternoon. Our flight was at 7:38pm.

Well what can I say about New York! - We visited Times Square first thing last Thursday and were too early to pick up our 9am Uptown Bus Tour - We stumbled on the Good Morning America Tv Studio and saw the Desperate Housewives Men on the couch and coming out of the side TV door. My daughter, age 13 was totally star struck.

We did the NYC sight seeing tour (3 days for price of 2).......didn't manage to do all the tours but did Uptown, Downtown, Night Tour and ferry to Statue of Liberty. We got off at Ellis Island for history lesson. Ticket also included a visit to Empire State Building and we were so lucky with the beautifal weather. Security checks very tight for ferry and Empire State so will take time...we went early for 8am.

The 9/11 memorial was so sad and moving....you can reserve passes on line which are free. Again tight security checks.

If you are a' Real Housewives of New York' fan the downtown tour bus does stop off at Zarin Fabrics. Unfortunately we missed our stop....wished we had got off!

We were there for 4 nights....just so much to do, so little time.

We had breakfast one morning in Amy's bakery, Greenwich Village...very nice.....However please note shops won't open there til 11am....we were too early for Juicy Couture. Shops in Soho were fab and a latte at Dean & Delucca was lovely and lovely ambience.

Would I go back to Doubletree Chelsea - Yes absolutely in a hearbeat. We loved the location too. Times Square would be too touristy and busy for us.

Well done to you all! Great Customer service and teamwork. Can't wait to return.

This is a Scottish saying.....'Back to old clothes and porridge for us' (saying after a holiday)

The Doubletree Chelsea was in a great location. We could walk to most everything and if we couldn't the conceirge was more than helpful. Great hotel for a short trip. The rooms are very small but have heard that most hotel rooms in NYC are the same.

Would stay again!

This was a great location if you like Whole Foods, Madison Square Garden and Times Square. Times Square is several blocks walk, but not too many. Whole Foods is around the corner and Madison Square Garden only about 2 blocks away.

The actual hotel is small and the rooms are also tiny, but they were clean and comfortable. A view toward the statue is great, but not if you're below the 20th floor because most buildings are so tall that you're only seeing other buildings.

It was loud at night (I was on the 18th floor), but that's just NY. I could also watch any tv station I wanted because the hotel had a service similar to Xfinity or Uverse.

Breakfast in the hotel was great and the servers (Davina and Liz) were a team who knew my order walking in after only one night at the hotel.

Overall, great location for me, easier to get to my customer site and great access to cabs whether I went to 7th or 6th Ave. The staff were friendly and helpful and cookies were available whenever you wanted one and not just when you first checked in.

The Doubletree on 7th and 29th was outstanding, The staff was very professional and helpful. Rooms were clean and fresh. The restruart had a full breakfast and service was outstanding. We particulally like the central location, It is very close to Madison Sqaure Gardens, Pann Station and not far from Times Square.

We stayed at this hotel last week. It is right by The Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to Times Square which suited us as we did not want to be right in the centre.
Hotel itself is modern. Rooms very clean. Comfortable beds. Staff extremely helpful. Of course don't forget the free cookies which are gorgeous !!
