great trip and stay at The Gem

Would recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
we had a wonderful stay at the GEM!!! Everything was great. The only concern was the small size of the rooms did not allow for even a chair. You had to be on bed if you wanted to be in the room for even a short period of time. We took full advantage of the lobby seating areas however and really enjoyed our stay.

A good place to stay in such a cute Chelsea neighborhood

Would recommend Wed, Jan 28, 2015
First of all, if you're going in knowing and expecting that the rooms are small and cozy, and you don't need all the bells and whistles of a fancy hotel, then I'd say the GEM is a great hotel! The front desk staff was very polite and friendly, and made some helpful suggestions for our stay. The cleaning lady was wonderful, and we tipped her well for not just her service but her friendliness, too. And the bellhop guys were nice and helpful, too. Like I said, it's a small room but we were only there to sleep -- the rest of the time, we were out and about exploring the cuteness of the Chelsea area. And the room rate was very decent -- the savings we made was put toward our meals, cocktails, manis/pedis, cab rides, etc. as we explored and enjoyed the area. For the low rate and friendly staff, I'd definitely come back again!

Attractions

While this hotel is in a residential area and not commercial like Times Square, there are still many things to do right around the hotel-- and personally, I like that it's in a residential and not commercial. If half a mile (6-9 blocks) is not too far a walk for you, you can explore great places nearby such as the Chelsea Market, Highline, and Penn Station. Of course, there are cute restaurant and shops even within 1-3 blocks from the hotel. There's also the option of hopping on the subway to get to places even further away.

Not the worst

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 29, 2014
Very very tiny rooms, hardly any amenities. Decent price, good for a quick trip alone. The location is the best selling point-easy to find, on subway lines, restaurants and shopping are close. The hotel itself is an afterthought.

Very nice, serviceable hotel, good price, great location

Would recommend Mon, Jun 9, 2014
My room was small, but very clean and comfortable. I felt that I got good value for my money. I wanted to be in Chelsea, so this location was perfect for me. The staff (at registration and housekeeping) was very friendly, polite, personable, and helpful. I love the shampoo and bath gel dispensers in the shower (which was REALLY nice), and the free bottle of water every day was also a nice touch. I recommend this hotel.

Dining

The Rail Line diner on 23rd (?) between 9th and 10th has very good food at reasonable prices.

A GEM of a place

Would recommend Sat, Jun 7, 2014
I don't typically stay in NYC (live in an outer suburb) but this was just what I needed for a place to lay my head after a long conference and night out on the town. The rooms are small but very efficient. Not necessarily a place for long term stay or for someone with a lot of luggage. But I was quite content. Our room was not located near a street (no view) either so it was quiet, which I like. Pricey - but hey, it's NYC. Overall a great place and I'd stay here again. Oh and a fantastic neighborhood near the subway and High Line.
