One of the most charming aspects of Chelsea Pines Inn is arguably the stunning walk-up row-building it is housed in. Originally built as a private home in the 1850s, the building was transformed into a gay-owned and operated hotel in 1982, when Sheldon Post and his partner Jay Lesiger bought the property. Since then, everyone has been welcome at Chelsea Pines Inn, making it a true staple in terms of gay accommodation in NYC.
Arrive at Chelsea Pines Inn and you’ll be welcomed with a unique decoration that evokes the Golden Age of Hollywood. Both rooms and common areas are decked out with vintage posters of glamorous movie stars and films, giving you the perfect occasion to unveil your inner Marilyn Monroe. In fact, each guest room is specifically dedicated to a “Celluloid Hero” from this age; so which one will you be staying with?
Room types include standard singles, deluxe rooms, and one-bedroom suites, and all offer an exceptional standard of quality. Think tasteful furnishings, plenty of natural light, and a modern color palette of soft blue and lemon. Go for the one-bedroom suite and you can enjoy a separate living room and bedroom with a Queen-bed, along with a dreamy private bathroom equipped with a granite countertop, standing shower, and gorgeous Gilchrist & Soames bath products.
But it’s not just the rooms which will leave you smitten. Rise and shine like a movie star, with a complimentary continental breakfast that’s served each morning in either the breakfast lounge, indoor greenhouse, or garden - depending on your preference and the weather! The guest lounge is also open daily until 11pm, where you can enjoy an endless flow of tea, coffee, and cookies - perfection!
