Overview

The hotel is centrally located for both business and leisure travelers
Standard rooms are small, starting at 135 square feet
Sandwiched between New York City's Garment District and Greenwich Village, The GEM Hotel Chelsea puts travelers within 2 miles of the city's Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and the High Line. And for most visitors, it's the location that brings them back time and again. While some guests praised the accommodations for being comfortable despite their small size, others lament the outdated digs, the musky odor and lack of soundproofing. Even so, all guest rooms feature down pillows, free Wi-Fi access, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries and bath robes. And even though The GEM Hotel Chelsea does not have an on-site eatery, the property's convenient Chelsea location affords visitors plenty of local restaurants and bars to try out during their stay. Guests who are true foodies should check out the neighborhood's 50,000-square-foot Eataly, which houses several Italian-themed restaurants, a marketplace, quick service counters and a cooking school, and is located less than a mile east of the hotel.
