Over the past few decades, Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood has evolved into a bustling arts district packed with galleries. It’s a popular area for visitors to stay thanks to an enticing selection of restaurants, nightclubs and attractions. Don’t miss the High Line—a beautiful public park built on an abandoned rail line—and Chelsea Market, a hip shopping center and food court housed in an industrial space that was once the National Biscuit Company factory.
Other entertainment options include Chelsea Piers, a sporting complex with a driving range that overlooks the Hudson River; the Highline Ballroom, featuring concerts and other performances; and the Joyce Theatre, one of NYC’s premier dance venues. The following hotels will help you stay in the heart of the action.
