If you’re looking for a gay accommodation experience with a difference for your next vacay to the Big Apple, you need to lock in a stay at Chelsea Mews Guest House. Built in 1840, Chelsea Mews proudly claims the status of being New York’s oldest gay guest house, and its long-standing experience in hospitality is only proven through the stellar service and facilities offered here.
Nestled in the heart of New York’s iconic gay district, Chelsea, the guest house could not be any more convenient when it comes to exploring the queer side of the Big Apple. Renowned restaurants, gay bars, and popular clubs will literally be at your fingertips, meaning you won’t even need to venture on the city’s subway to look for a good time.
As you enter Chelsea Mews Guest House, be treated to an old-world aesthetic that evokes all the charm of the guest house’s past. Rooms are decked out with antique furnishings including brass beds and vintage-style lamps, which congruously blend with original features and papered walls. To guarantee a comfortable sleep, all rooms also come complete with Tempur-Pedic mattresses.
Depending on your budget and the number of people you’re traveling with, you can choose from various room types at Chelsea Mews Guest House. Solo travelers can benefit from one of the five quaint single rooms, while couples will feel more than comfortable in either the double room or the suite.
For the utmost accommodation experience, we recommend locking in a stay in The Suite. Designed by Michael Greer, who was the decorator of the White House under Jackie Kennedy, every aesthetic detail is honored here. Along with tasteful decorations, you can enjoy a dreamy Queen-size bed as well as a private ensuite bathroom which comes complete with a claw-foot bath that simply begs a relaxing afternoon soak before a night on the town.
Beyond the rooms, you can also appreciate a range of hotel facilities that promise a comfortable stay. One of the highlights is the in-house massage therapist who can offer you a relaxing experience in between all that shopping and dancing - bliss.
So if you fancy experiencing all the grandeur of yesteryear that is paired with modern convenience, pencil in a stay at Chelsea Mews Guest House for your next NYC gaycation.
