    About

    Two adjoining 19th-century townhouses make up the Chelsea Inn, so you'll experience historic Chelsea while being surrounded by all the shopping, dining, and art that makes modern Chelsea such a popular destination. The area is filled with 19th-century brick townhouses and iconic office buildings like the Flatiron Building, just 6 blocks away. Tree-lined Madison Square Park, a 10-minute walk, is a perfect spot to people-watch while enjoying a burger from the immensely popular Shake Shack. Chelsea is also the center of Manhattan's art scene, especially along 10th and 11th avenues, where hundreds of galleries line the streets. 3 subway lines within a 4-block walk have trains that connect directly to Times Square, Central Park, and Fifth Avenue shopping, all within a 20-minute ride.

    Guests can check their email from anywhere in this intimate 33-guestroom hotel with the complimentary wireless Internet access.

    The Chelsea Inn offers the intimacy and charm of a boutique hotel with the budget-conscious traveler in mind. These cozy rooms with city and courtyard views are equipped with cable TV, compact refrigerators (on request), phones with voicemail, and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms are stocked with bath products and a hair dryer, and have shower/tub combinations. And keep in mind that this is a classic New York walk-up building: stairs, but no elevators.
