At the two-star Chelsea Savoy Hotel, the standard, anonymous hotel experience holds sway—proudly, even. You won’t find a lot of flair here, but you'll have everything you need, affordably too.
Pros: Strategic location between uptown and downtown. Good value. Relatively large, comfortable rooms.
Cons: Street noise. Not a lot of charm.
The Chelsea Savoy’s 89 guest rooms are trim and tidy, with heavy wooden furnishings and all the expected amenities. Everything is standard issue, from the desks and (faded) print bedspreads to the large framed prints.
All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, cable television, a telephone, mini-fridge and iPod dock. Note that street-facing rooms will pick up some noise. Rooms in back are quieter, if a bit darker.
The private bathrooms are rather run-of-the-mill, but their pale pink tiles and brown marble sinks shine. They’re also quite large, and come outfitted with a hair dryer and toiletries. Bathtubs are available.
Perks at the Chelsea Savoy Hotel include a light complimentary breakfast of bagels and coffee and the take-no-chance dependability throughout.
Wi-Fi is available for an additional charge.
The Chelsea Savoy overlooks the busy intersection of Seventh Avenue and 23rd Street in artsy, happening Chelsea. The hotel is convenient to both uptown and downtown, and Penn Station is just nine blocks north, making this a close connection for those arriving by intercity rail and certain buses.
Attractions within easy walking distance of the Chelesa Savoy include Madison Square Garden, Macy’s Herald Square and the Garment District to the north, and the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park to the east. Walk west, and you’ll hit the High Line, a groundbreaking elevated park, and the trendy Meatpacking District and picturesque West Village are both a pretty stroll to the south.
Reserving at the Chelsea Savoy

About the Chelsea Savoy Hotel neighborhood
Bordered by the West Village to the south and the Garment District to the north, Chelsea boasts a staggering concentration of art galleries. The neighborhood is also the epicenter of New York's gay scene, and hip restaurants, swanky boutiques, and bars abound. However, at its heart, Chelsea is a residential area, characterized by long streets lined with century-old brownstones.
