Great hotel on 14th Street
I discovered Chelsea Pines Inn several years ago - and since then it's become my "home away from home" in New York. From the wonderfully decorated rooms (with posters of old movies), to the amazingly generous breakfast (including daily loaves of incredible tea-bread made by the owner), to the garden patio in back - this place is a total success. The rooms are quiet and comfortable, summer or winter - the staff is VERY helpful and friendly... there's a business-room with computers and printer, so I don't have to drag my laptop to New York if I'm only going for a short visit... the location is fantastic (right above the West Village, and at the edge of Chelsea, with the 8th Avenue subway right up the block)... The Chelsea Pines even puts out its own daily "newspaper", with upcoming activities in the neighborhood, and suggestions for touristing and shopping (including the spectacular High Line Park, which is only a block and a half away). I used to live in New York - and love going back there. And now the Chelsea Pines Inn is one of the things I look forward to most, when I do go back. Because the whole place is so comfortable, and the staff so welcoming, it really does feel like. -NCBell

Cute, hip little B&B
LOVED this place. Cute and well decorated with an Old Hollywood theme. We had the Paul Newman room which was fabulous, with a hot, shirtless picture of Paul in his 20's in the bathroom! The inn was quiet and close to everything in chelsea...such a cute area. Loved the bed as well, and the shower was so unique and nice. I would totally stay here again. Friendly staff as well. -socaliscorpio

“Fantastic experience all around !”
Everything was fantastic!! Highlights were staff friendliness, breakfast quality, location and cleanliness. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. -Cuong

“Located close to the subway. A five-minute walk from Meatpacking/Chelsea art/food/culture scene yet so quiet at night. Staff were all amazing. Breakfast is ample. Info leaflets each morning were really informative. Would definitely stay again. ” -Andrew, South Africa

“The location of Chelsea Pines is excellent and close to the Subway, making exploring NYC very easy. The other subway lines and Penn Station are within walking distance (although not with luggage). Included in the rate is a "complimentary" breakfast which is more than adequate to start the day, with bagels, fruit, toast, cereal, homemade bread / cake and of course coffee. We were in the Rock Hudson room which is large and comfortable and was serviced every day, with toiletries replenished. Outside there is a small garden to enjoy breakfast before "taking on" New York.” -Martin, United Kingdom

“A funky treasure right in the midst of great eateries and a short walk to the Joyce Theater and the Whitney. What could be better - oh the bed, that bed!” -Russell, United States of America

“Fantastic place to stay in NYC! Only a few blocks to the subway, Chelsea Market, and High Line Park. The staff was incredibly helpful. The bed was super cozy. Mornings greeted us with a European style breakfast in the garden.” -Rachel, United States of America

“The staff is what really made this hotel. They were attentive, helpful, and friendly. They are the reason we plan to return to this hotel.” -Kim, United States of America


Chelsea Pines Inn is located in a five story walk-up row house that was built as a private home in the 1850s. In the 1980s, the building was transformed into a charming gay owned and operated hotel, where everyone has always been welcome.All guest rooms and common areas are decorated with original film posters from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Unique stores, galleries, restaurants, and clubs are within walking distance, and the world’s largest mass transit system is just a few steps away, so you can get anywhere in the city quickly and economically.

Originally built as a private home back when 14th Street was the northern end of the city, our building has gone through many exciting changes over the years. As the City grew around us it became a fashionable rooming house and was used as the setting in Cool Air, a short story by the celebrated horror author H.P. Lovecraft. (Just as a note, Chelsea Pines Inn has central air.) Eventually 317 West Fourteenth Street was home base to sailors in the Navy and Merchant Marine during the early 20th century, when this area was a working port. In 1983 the late Sheldon Post and his lover Jay Lesiger purchased the building and created Chelsea Pines Inn.

Today, Chelsea Pines Inn features unique rooms, each one dedicated to a “Celluloid Hero” from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Our rooms feature high-end luxury linens and Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities.

The Chelsea Pines Inn is a gay-owned, unique bed and breakfast hosting guests in Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. The 5-story walk-up (no elevator) provides 24-hour concierge services and is a 5 minute walk from the Highline Park.

The inn is decorated with original movie posters from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Rooms feature free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, an iPod docking station, and a refrigerator.

The Manhattan Chelsea Pines offers an expanded continental breakfast with homemade bread, bagels, and espresso. Snacks from the cookie jar and candy bowl are available all day.

Relax in the courtyard or the greenhouse. Ticket service, airport transportation, and travel information are also provided for all guests.

The popular Chelsea Market is a 5 minute walk from the bed and breakfast. The 14th Street A, C, and E subway station is around the corner.

Chelsea is a great choice for travelers interested in being in a gay neighborhood, walking, sightseeing and city walks.
