“Great Chelsea location and decent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Echoing recent posts, the Chelsea location between 6th and 7th Avenues is convenient to major subway lines and an easy walk or short cab ride from Penn Station. Thoughtful staff - especially Thomas! - and nicely appointed rooms make this a good choice if you're tired of hotels. Across/up the street is a fabulous market/deli/salad bar called Garden of Eden - fair prices for anything you could want to create a meal.

Room Tip: if street noise [traffic] bothers you, pick a room in the back of the building.

My spouse and adult daughter spent 3 nights at the Inn the weekend after New Year's (we've stayed at the perhaps 4 or 5 other occasions over the last several years). The Chelsea location between 6th and 7th Avenues is convenient to major subway lines and an acceptable walk or fast cab ride from Penn Station. The Inn is hardly fancy, but the rooms are clean and nicely appointed (sort of antique sale chic). The breakfast is fine and the wine and cheese on Friday and Saturday evenings is a nice plus. Our room overlooking 23rd Street could have been quieter, but we all slept well nonetheless. A lot of value for the price.

Room Tip: There are only 12 rooms -- pick one that does not overlook the street if you want maximum quiet

Our recent stay at the Inn on 23rd found it to be a lovely property in the midst of the conrete jungle. Our room, the Quilt Room, was very attractive with an Americana theme. It was exceptionally clean, well-appointed with a homey feeling. The Inn overall is great, and you can't help but feel safe and secure here. Wonderful bed linens, and a noice blackout machine too. They do have passes to many of the famous museums, but I guess Jason forgot when we told him we were going to the Museum of the City of NY and we didn't know so we paid the entrance fee only to learn upon our return that we could have saved $20. Here comes the "but". Breakfast is mediocore. The breakfast server, knowing we had an 8:30 appointment, brought out the fruit bowl promptly at 8:00. While that is the time appointed for breakfast, we needed to eat in a few minutes and only one other person was in the dining area. The server could have offered to put out the fruit a few minutes ahead, but barely acknowledged our presence. It's called service. Tough, cold pancakes that needed to be microwaving came next, and bagels. Butter was unspreadable. Brought out syrup when we were leaving. Since the Inn owns the restaurant, I would suggest a 20-25% discount to encourage guests to use the dining room. The current 10% just doesn't do it. I'm sure profit from alcohol would cover the discount. I would stay here again however, especially since the subway is in the same block, and goes to Penn Station quickly (the ACE Downtown to the hotel, Uptown to return to the train).

I've visited this neighborhood for over 20 years and I've tried most of the hotels in the area soon after they opened. Chain hotels, high rises, suite hotels... but this was my first visit to the Inn on 23rd and it's by far the best. I arrived to a personal welcome, and from then on the staff made every effort to see that I was comfortable. The library/ breakfast room makes a cozy retreat from the action outside. My room was good sized (for New York) and very well maintained. Transportation is convenient on 7th and 6th Avenues and the inn provided every imaginable city guide as well as tips like how to get around the lines at the Metropolitan Museum of Art! When I got back after a full day, I could make a complimentary cup of tea, or have a glass of wine from the honor bar. I expect to be back often.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter. I stayed on 5th floor and heard very little street noise.

Warm, cosy,clean and comfortable, I would recommend this B&B to anyone.Furnished with eclectic antiques, it is full of character and a refreshing change from bland hotel chains. Ideally situated in Chelsea and close to the subway. Good bar restaurant on the ground floor. A warm, friendly welcome from the very helpful staff.
