About the place

Chelsea Pines Inn proudly claims to be NYC’s premier urban bed and breakfast. Conveniently located at the crossroads of Chelsea, Greenwich Village, and the Meatpacking District, this place offers an unbeatable location that will make your gaycation to the Big Apple all the more enjoyable. Unique stores, galleries, gay clubs and so much more will literally be on your doorstep with a stay here.

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 offeran exceptional standard of quality: 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!

Many guests also rate Chelsea Pines Inn very highly in terms of gay hotels NYC, claiming the venue to be a hidden gem in the Big Apple. Offering a welcoming staff who will do their utmost to ensure your accommodation experience is a memorable one, Chelsea Pines Inn should undoubtedly be on your gay hotel radar for your next vacay to New York.

Agency partner selected by misterb&b

As we cater to the global LGBTQ community, we are focused on creating a more welcoming world for all. In addition to our LGBTQ hosts and to help ensure a superior level of hospitality, we have selected agency partners to offer more listings in cities around the world. Each partner has agreed to sign a non discrimination policy, in particular on the basis of sexual orientation.

Why add these listings?
We believe they are a good alternative in locations where we have less hosts/no host. They also address the needs of LGBTQ travelers who may occasionally be more interested in such listings rather than in the experience at a 100% gay resort or with a misterb&b host. At this point though, we haven’t been able to vet their welcoming attitude and acceptance of the LGBTQ community.

When booking with misterb&b, you help support organizations fighting for LGBTQ rights around the world.
Find out about Mister for Good initiative in the footer and help start building tomorrow's world by making a donation.
Supporting the community is not just about survival, it's also about thriving, empowering and making a difference.
