Historic Chelsea building The High Line hotel is a striking landmark, thanks to its location in a former seminary in the heart of Chelsea’s buzzing gallery district. The celebrated elevated High Line Park is right across the street, continuing the vibrant, open spaces of the hotel’s front and rear gardens. There are private indoor and outdoor event spaces, as well as 8 large meeting rooms, and a ballroom that holds up to 275 people. World-class nightlife Start off the evening with an aperitivi cocktail, at the newly opened restaurant Alta Linea, then walk a few blocks downtown to the fashionable, edgy Meatpacking District, or uptown towards “Club Row” for restaurants, clubbing, and bars to be seen in. Chelsea Piers, just a couple of blocks away at the edge of the Hudson, offers an unrivaled choice of sports and activities. For gourmands, Chelsea Market will prove irresistible. Guests and locals alike enjoy New York’s first Intelligentsia Coffee location, and a full bar in the evening.
