The Inn on 23rd 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!
