Looking to stay near Midtown, but not amid the teeming crowds? Hampton Inn New York Chelsea just might be the perfect solution. This hotel is on a quiet street in Manhattan's hip and historic Chelsea neighborhood. Hop a subway, 1 block from the hotel, and you'll be in Times Square (1 mile away) in 5 minutes. The Empire State Building and Macy's gigantic flagship store are both about a half-mile from this Hampton Inn. Chelsea itself has a lot to offer. One of the city's most attractive neighborhoods, it's long been a haven for artists and writers. Today, in addition to contemporary-art galleries, you'll find charming cafés and fashion-forward boutiques. Stroll Chelsea's picturesque streets--particularly around West 21st and West 22nd streets--and admire the 19th-century townhouses. Foodies flock to the Chelsea Market, about a 15-minute walk. The former home of the National Biscuit Company, the Market is a great place to pick up a freshly baked brownie and a frothy cappuccino.
Before stepping out, fuel up with Hampton Inn's complimentary On the House® breakfast, which includes hot selections. If you're in a hurry, grab a complimentary On the Run breakfast bag™ as you head out the door (available Monday - Friday). A fitness center with TVs is open 24 hours a day--or, better still, take a walk or run along the High Line, west of the hotel.
Relax in your modern guestroom, featuring the signature Clean and Fresh Hampton Bed™, complimentary wireless Internet access, and 25-inch satellite TVs. You can snuggle up with your pet; the hotel permits those weighing 25 pounds or less. Or brew a cup of coffee and get down to business at the work desk--there's also a handy portable lap desk. The bathroom features a curved shower rod and a WaterPik shower head, with settings from soothing to invigorating.
A coin-operated washer/dryer in the basement is a boon if you're staying more than a couple of days.
