If you choose to branch out, make use of 7 subway lines within a 5-minute walk of the hotel. Head north to Times Square and Broadway, and be dazzled by the area’s quintessential New York buzz. Take in unforgettable views from the 86th-floor observation deck of the Empire State Building, less than a mile from the Chelsea Savoy. Or shop to your heart's content at Macy’s humongous flagship store, just 1 block from the Empire State Building.
Hop onto the subway or walk about 15 minutes south from the hotel to visit Union Square. If you’re there on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday, grab some artisan treats and fresh seasonal fruit at the celebrated Greenmarket. Chase your snack with a frothy cappuccino from one of the many coffeehouses in Greenwich Village, one-half mile south of Union Square.
Expect no shortage of creature comforts at this recently renovated hotel. Guestrooms feature 37-inch flat-screen TVs with HBO and other premium cable channels. You can also log onto email with Wi-Fi (surcharge). If you’re hot, crank the air conditioning--or open your window and take in city or courtyard views, and grab a cold one (BYOB) from the compact refrigerator. In the morning, enjoy complimentary weekday newspaper delivery before heading down for complimentary continental breakfast. Or, for a divinely decadent treat, sink your teeth into a crème brûlée donut from the popular Donut Plant, right next to the hotel.
