DoubleTree by Hilton New York City - Chelsea

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel, nothing exceptional, comfortable bed, friendly staff. Feels like lobby, elevators, and maybe rooms could be spiffed up some. But everything was comfortable and convenient. Reasonable price for NYC Marathon weekend trip.

Clean, convenient location, nice staff. Reasonably priced.

Good location , an easy access to popular places in New York . Will stay again !

The hotel itself is fine for the price. Convenient deli style food service on the corner. Let a cab drop you off at night because there seem to be a lot of vagrants in the area. Also, there is a park across the street which becomes their living room at night.

I wish the facilities and housekeeping were much better. There were issues with thermostat control, elevator servicing to floors, bedding cleanliness, response from housekeeping staff, functionality of the ice machines during sweltering NYC summer temps, size of room, space in bathroom, lighting, etc.

I like this hotel. Although the rooms are small. Excellent staff. The location is 15-20mins walk to the Time Square.

First off just want to say the staff is extremely helpful. We had booked a room with a King size bed only but upon check in was moved to a room with a queen size bed + foldable twin for the first night and into a room with 2 double beds for the rest of our stay. They had also added on a complimentary buffet voucher for breakfast. Secondly, getting around to the subways, times square and other major attractions was really convenient. It's about a 15 min walk to times square and 5-10 minutes for most subways. It cost about 8-10$ depending on the time of the day to uber to times square. Overall, no complaints with the staff or location.. wish there were more elevators. It can get pretty busy sometimes and coming down from the higher floors would take a bit.

Room was small but very comfortable and cozy. I enjoyed it. I find no reason to have a big hotel room as we do not spend alot of time in the room. Our bathtub would not drain, but was taken care of immediately. One negative, which the hotel could not help, is the other people on the floor were very loud sometimes out in the hall. I would definitely stay here again

Great location. Super super tiny hotel. Many floor (27) and only two elevators.

Very friendly staff, close walk to times square and other great attractions. They welcomed us with warm chocolate chip cookies and check in didn't start until 4 and they had our room ready at 12! Loved this hotel and experience. The room was a great getaway from an awesome day of activities.

The rooms are on the small side, but it's in the middle of Manhattan-there is no space! The staff are great, very accommodating and welcoming. The room is clean and maintained. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent service from all staff we encountered. Rooms were spotless cleaned everyday. A domestic occurred in one room on our floor. Security straight on to it.

We stayed overnight 11/29 to 12/1. The rooms are clean and updated, the beds are comfortable, and the bathroom, while on the small side, is also clean and bright with good water pressure and all the expected amenities. Where this hotel stood out for me was the exceptional staff. From the moment I first made contact over the phone to ask about early check-in, until the moment the stellar Bellman put us in our cab back to the ferry, this was the best my family and I have ever been treated by a hotel staff. Kudos to DoubleTree Chelsea. As long as you keep hiring people of this caliber, I will be staying with you.

Close to everything. Clean and comfortable. Staff was amazing!

Experience was great. Hotel staff was very informed regarding restaurants and transportation. Everyone was professional and very courteous. Food was very good.

Pros: Location is good, subway is very close by Front desk is friendly and nice Cons: No bottled water provided No luggage storage service under any circumstances (due to their own policy, not even doubletree or Hilton's policy) Fitness center is really small with limited options Overall: I booked this hotel for my parents when they came to visit from Taiwan to attend my graduation. Even though they didn't enjoy the hotel due to the cons I listed above, I do understand that hotels in midtown with this price are all having small rooms and space. However, one thing I cannot stand is that they don't provide luggage storage even when my parents just checked out for one night and would re-check in one day after. Instead, they recommended us to use storage company which was located on 37th st (that's almost 10 blocks away). My parents were getting old and it was too much trouble for them to carry their luggages all the way to there. At the end, we put the luggages at my place (on 34th st) instead, but it was still troublesome.

We had a room with a broken toilet and was told not to use it.

Won't be staying here again. Our heat was pretty much nonexistent. Cold air was blown even though we turned it up. We eventually had to turn the whole unit off so we didn't end up with frostbite (joking, but it was freezing). Housekeeping came to the room starting at 6:30am even with the do not disturb sign on the door. When asked to come back they just went to the rooms next to ours and made so much noise it was IMPOSSOBLE to get any sleep. They came back 4 more times before we got fed up and checked out at 10:30. Not worth it!

Met expectations friendly staff. Morning coffee great and Jamal very nice at front desk. Pleasant experience a little bit of a walk but able to cab it. Would stay again.

This was not a four star experience. It began at check-in when we passed through an outside entrance which consisted of dying shrubs and broken tables. It continued with an assignment to a handicap room which did not have the bathtub which we requested. It ended with the the realization that the chamber maid picked up the make up case along with the used towels.
