  • Original rotary telephones, custom-made furniture and embossers in every room
  • The laid-back, welcoming ambiance
  • The fabulous location for exploring Manhattan


Housed in the former General Theological Seminary in Chelsea, the High Line Hotel feels like a sophisticated old-world dormitory that today houses well-dressed patrons. With just 60 rooms, the boutique property has an intimate, welcoming atmosphere. Its tree-lined inner courtyard, sheltered from the craze of Manhattan, sets the tone for the rest of the hotel, an oasis of serenity nestled in the heart of the city.

Each room features custom-made furniture and wallpaper, and original, working 1920s rotary telephones. The attention to detail and authenticity contributes to the feeling that the hotel is more akin to an impeccably decorated, quirky mansion from a bygone era. Each room offers unexpected touches, like a custom embosser or stack of vintage books.

Coffee lovers convene in the lobby for cult favorite Intelligentsia brews, and at night, the barista-cum-bartender swaps caffeine for cocktails. Working, antique typewriters placed throughout the lobby are available for use by those looking to be transported back in time. Casual and homey, yet with the elegance of a luxury property, the High Line Hotel is a terrific choice for those looking for a cozier take on New York. The hotel even welcomes dogs, who are treated to the same five-star service as the guests.

Who Should Stay
