Fodor's Review

Friendly innkeepers Annette and Barry Fisherman welcome guests to this five-floor, 19th-century building, which also comes with its own cat/mascot. The individually decorated rooms include a "canopy" room with a four-poster bed and a 1940s room with a tube radio and overstuffed lounge chairs. Complimentary breakfast and à la carte lunch and dinner are available in the ground-floor dining room.

A great stay in New York

Just a stone’s throw from the famous Chelsea Hotel the Inn on 23rd is hard to fault. Where do we start? We were welcomed by Thomas, one of three helpful staff, all of whom were a mine of information about everything New York. We started our day with a visit to the Inn’s first-floor breakfast room. As well as a delicious buffet breakfast, served in the Library, we were free to browse the mind-boggling variety of travel books on the city a great

selection of mags and newspapers. Getting our ‘bearings’ we discovered that we were a mere 5 minute walk from the Empire State Building and 15 minutes from Time Square. Each of the rooms is themed, ours, located on the 3rd floor was the the Bamboo. Dorothy, the Inn’s beautiful cat who gave us a quizzical welcome and promptly went back to sleep was just one of ‘touches’ that are a rarity today. I must mention the trouble-free, complimentary Wifi that let us stay in touch. A great lodgings in a great city!

Oasis in the craziness

We stayed at the Inn two weeks ago for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. Great rooms, homey atmosphere, great amenities. The community fridge and honor bar were great since we were travelling with an infant.

Excellent Room, Breakfast & Service

Wonderful 3 night stay in the French Provincial Room located on the 2nd floor. Room has lovely comfortable chairs for relaxing after a long day in the city and we could not hear street noise. We were invited to use the library and partake of the free coffee/tea cookies etc. upon arrival. It was no problem to leave our bags due to our early arrival. We were offered free museum passes and the receptionist made our car reservations for our return

to the airport. A very nice breakfast is served and is included in the price. Plan to return to this delightful little inn.

We're going back!

We spent only one night here in the largest hotel room I've ever seen in NY and it felt like a luxury hotel at less than luxury hotel prices. I almost gave our room a four because it was cold, but there was an electric wall heater and a space heater which we didn't notice till morning, so the Innkeepers have addressed this. We had to spend several hours in the hotel because my daughter had homework to do: The library/bar/sitting room for guests

was a great place to work and she was even able to do some research there. The owners are really nice and the cat is docile and puts up with attention from guests. The breakfast included fresh fruit, beverages, bagels and muffins and there is a guest refrigerator and microwave. On this first visit, we shared the Nevada room, using a king sized bed and a sofa bed which my daughter actually found comfortable. Sharing the room made the $225 cost a true value, but when we return using two rooms, it will be a bit pricy for our family. It is close to both the village and midtown and public transportation. We highly recommend this place!
