Not the worst

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

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.

Good Value for Price; Great Staff

My second stay at the GEM. It's a good, no-frills hotel; rooms are very small and basic but clean and well designed. Temperature in the room can take a while to adjust and control, and hallways are noisy - room doors seem to slam on their own. However, the location is great (right on train and bus lines and across from Murray's Bagels), and the staff is terrific - they were up to fix a non-working shower within minutes of my call to the front desk.

Chelsea Gem is true to its name

Great experience...close to river, midtown, village, restaraunts, bars, shopping. Quiet room. Very clean and nicely laid out for a small room. One on the end is best.

Simple elegance

This is a very clean hotel with a helpfull staff. There arent many thrills and the rooms are small but it is a nice place in a great location. The rooftop garden is a good place to meet before going out. or unwind at the end of the evening. This hotel had one of the best prices and it is worth more. The room size would be an issue if you bring a LOT of luggage for a longer stay.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The front desk helped me find a parking garage 1.5 blocks away. It cost $40 for a 24 hour stay. This is the regular rate in NYC. It makes it easier to bring your car when you know parking is close.

NYC for Christmas 2010

The hotel is very clean and nice. Perfect for a single person traveling. The rooms are small but for just sleeping while enjoying the city it was perfect. Price was excellent. Location was great, one block for the subway, made it easy to get around the city. Went to the Guggenheim, saw some Broadway and Off-Broadway Shows. Caught a holiday cabaret show. Dinner with friends in the city. Overall a great 4 day stay.

Small nice hotel

I went on a trip to visit some friends and I found that the hotel was perfect. The rooms are small but I didn't need more, because I was there only to sleep. If you plan on spending more time in the room then I don't think that this could be an option. They are very clean and well decorated.
