Celebrating a fun night in NYC with my husband for his milestone birthday. As soon as the staff at The Jade Hotel realized this, they sent us up a bottle of champagne! This really got our night off to a fun start. Such a great boutique hotel in a fun part of Greenwich Village with kind, attentive, and courteous staff! We would got back in a heartbeat!
The hotel is on a nice quiet street, with easy access to the subway. The rooms are beautifully appointed, though on the small side. The staff was helpful and courteous. I would definitely stay here again.
It was very convenient to all the things we wanted to do. Small place with a friendly staff. I was able to park on the street all weekend. I expect to pay ~$300/night, but this wasn't up to the fee. The pillows are undersized by about 1/3. The room layout made it hard to get to the window side of the bed. There was no mini fridge. The nice rainfall shower head had no way for height-challenged people to change its position. The toilet seats are cheap plastic. No electric outlet on one side of the bed, inexcusable in the day of "I charge my phone while I sleep." The lighting scheme, involving use of your room card in a slot and a pad of push button switches, is inscrutable.
I can highly recommend a stay at the Chelsea Inn. Lot's of stairs but a great room for a good price. Union square and Broadway is close by and you can easly walk to Little Italy or Chinatown! If you can't walk that many stairs this is not the hotel for you
It was one block from where we needed to go the most often. My husbands favorite coffee place was next door. (Petite abelle). The staff was friendly and helpful. And the room was newly renovated with high ceilings and a very pretty contemporary style. The bed was comfortable. Some rooms in this place have a shared bathroom. I booked one with a private. Still this seems to be a common thing in nyc so be careful when booking. We stayed in room 207 which was newly renovated. The only thing lacking was individual temp control, which we fixed with a space heater. A refrigerator and microwave would have been nice too. The room was very small, not good for more than two people.
Nothing front desk closed at 9pm so they basically robbed me. It looked like a homeless shelter, only crackhead and whores stay here
In general it appeared to be a nice place. Got a GREAT deal on Kayak. Upon arrival we were given a different room than one we booked. Room we were given should not be rented to paying guests. It was ONLY guest room in the basement, in between boiler room and laundry room. Likely a converted utility closet. Garbage bags in hallway, staff yelling to each other and playing music in laundry room at 7AM. Can't help but think we were assigned this room as 'punishment' for getting such a good deal (nearly half off website price).
The renovated rooms were very nice, however, they had been recently painted and the fumes were overwhelming, so I was transferred to one of the older, non-renovated rooms. Although the bed and furnishings were new (sheets, pillows and wall mounted TV, the walls (paint and plaster) and carpet were what you would expect in a no-tell motel. Also, most of the rooms "shared" a bathroom. Your bedroom had it's own door and you had to leave your room to go into a bathroom which was used by another room. It worked out fine. Still, it is a great value ($65/night booked in advance) for the location! There's a cute french cafe next to it for breakfast and you're never in the room (very small as most NYC hotel rooms) anyway. It was a 5 story walk-up building - no elevator. After looking at 2 rooms (one without a window! and both freshly painted/smelly) we were transferred to the 5th floor and it was a struggle getting the luggage up the 4 flights of stairs (main floor/1st floor). It will be a very nice hotel once the renovation is completed.
I asked for a refund and left 4 hours after I got there. I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy
Rooms were recently remodeled, or at least mine was. Nicely done with some exposed brick, wood floor, tasteful art and fixtures, great bed, big screen TV. Shared bathroom was also freshly and tastefully done, and clean.... But SHARED. I think they may have some rooms w private baths for more $. They were working on the hallways during my stay, but I don't see how they can fully update vintage structure with its narrow halls and losing stairway. Street noise.
Chelsea Inn is literally 50 feet from 5th ave in awesome walking distance to everything. great location. Having said that, our bathroom wasn't in our room, we had a separate key and a shared bathroom_ which was clean, just inconvenient, and after a full 7 hours of walking be prepared to climb some stairs because you might be on the 4th floor and there is no elevator :-)
Check in time takes almost two hours
The hotel is affordable for New York City. It is clean, tidy and attractive. There are no extras, but the price is right.
Breakfast was good from the bakery down stairs - choice of pastry, a piece of fruit and a coffee and the lady there is lovely! Ask to stay in a room at the back if you can - the street is very noisy at night and the windows are not double glazed!!
Centrally located Loud music from bar next door
