Chinatown or Chelsea?

Jump to last reply

Going to NY for 3 days, between Christmas and New Years.

Been searching for hotels and noting that rates go up the last couple of days before New Year's Eve. I would leave on the morning of 12/29 but that last night is when a lot of hotels seem to boost their rates.

So I found two hotels which seem to be decent, the Wyndham Garden in Chelsea and a new one (no reviews anywhere) in Chinatown.

The one in Chelsea would seem to be more convenient. It's nearer to friends and to places I'd want to visit like Central Park. I figure the rink would look great that time of the year and all the shopping areas near 5th Avenue would be decorated.

The prices for both would be the same but the new one in Chinatown would include breakfast. Not sure if it's good or I'd be better off looking to grab something to eat on my own.

My last visit, in 2010, also stayed in Chelsea, around 26th Street. But I spent a lot of time downtown, in the village and around. Didn't really get up to mid or uptown except the Top of the Rock and a trip or two to Central Park.

How does downtown compare to Chelsea/midtown during that time of the year?
