But it is extremely clean and neat, the breakfast is filling and healthy, fresg eggs, fruit breads. the staff are friendly...

My girlfriend and I travelled to New York City for the New Year's Eve celebration and stayed 4 nights at the Colonial House Inn. I don't think i will ever stay anywhere else if I travel to NYC again! The subway station is right around the corner as well as plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and entertainment. The staff here...

My friends and I ALWAYS wanted to 'do' Times Square for New Year's Eve. Last year we found this hotel and it had great reviews. With high hopes, a whole year in advance, twelve of us altogether made reservations for the nights surrounding New Year's. While only six were actually able to make the trip, we were not disappointed! The...

Damn! As so often happens, a nice place run by gays for gays has been discovered and completely overrun by straights. I've been coming here for years and it is a true find - cheap, cheerful and with a great location, not to mention nude sun bathing on the roof! On this most recent trip it was 90% straight! Soon...

Our was-unfortunately-not a pleasure trip. Rather, it was a family emergency. Tony and his staff did everything to accommodate our needs. Our schedules changed multiple times, and they found us space. We hope that our next trip will be for pleasure. Regardless, we are certain of one thing. Our accommodations will be at the Colonial House Inn.

My Husband and I stayed at the Colonial House Inn for 7 days and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff is very helpful about finding locations close by especially great restaurants. Our room was well kept and comfortable. The location of the Inn was very convenient for our needs. The rates were also moderate for New York. Each morning...

Without a doubt Colonial House has all the others beat in terms of location, rooms, cleanliness, friendliness and bang for the buck. We have been going there for years and are pleased that they stay on top of the competition in this fiercely competitive city. Special kudos to the manager, Tony, and his staff.

Our triple superior room was very small and poorly furnished with shabby furniture and threadbare rugs. It was very depressing to be in the room and made sure that we left early and returned late.

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.
