Looking for a good, solid hotel in a great Manhattan neighborhood--and one that won't break your budget? Four Points by Sheraton Manhattan - Chelsea just might be the perfect fit. Nestled on a side street in the artistic Chelsea district, this hotel is steps from dozens of restaurants, cafés, and classic New York delis, and right around the corner from a Whole Foods Market. The new High Line, an elevated park with walking paths and fabulous views, is a 15-minute walk west. After you've worked up an appetite, walk 10 minutes farther to the Chelsea Market, the birthplace of the Oreo cookie and now home to an eclectic array of bakeries and specialty food shops.
You'll be staying in one of the nation's most creative neighborhoods, so why not check out Chelsea's lively visual-arts scene? Up-and-coming artists display their works in hundreds of galleries that cluster around the neighborhood's western edge. New works from fresh faces are always in ample supply at the nearby School of Visual Arts and Fashion Institute of Technology. Chelsea's renovated warehouses are home to an increasing number of trendy bars and clubs. Big-name entertainment, as well as sports showdowns, draws crowds to Madison Square Garden, 8 blocks north. And, with 5 subway stops within a 5-minute walk, you can easily access Times Square, Broadway theaters, Fifth Avenue, and other must-see attractions.
After all that sightseeing, treat yourself to tacos and tequila at the hotel's Las Chicas Locas restaurant. In warm weather, the spacious outdoor patio is an ideal spot for socializing and sipping margaritas. You can catch up with friends back home or get down to business via complimentary Wi-Fi, available throughout the hotel.
When you're ready to call it a day, your guestroom provides a comfortable retreat. Stretch out on the custom Four Points by Sheraton Four Comfort Bed and watch a late-night show on the flat-screen TV, or check email. You can start the next day with a cup of gourmet java from the in-room coffeemaker. For a truly memorable visit, opt for an upper-floor room with views of the city. And rest assured: This hotel is smoke-free.
