Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • In northern Chelsea, near Penn Station and the Empire State Building
  • Clean, modern rooms with flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers
  • Free breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • 24-hour business center
  • 24-hour fitness center with modern machines
  • Chelton's Bar and Grille, serving American cuisine for all three meals

Cons

  • Unattractive area with few quality restaurants or bars nearby
  • Elevators can get busy

Bottom Line

This Doubletree is a better-than-average chain option delivering all the DoubleTree essentials -- free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and 24-hour fitness and business centers. It's notable for its full-service restaurant and bar (which many comparable chains lack) and is convenient (if not particularly attractive) location in northern Chelsea near Penn Station and the Empire State Building.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In northern Chelsea, near Herald Square, the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden

The DoubleTree is located on West 29th Street. Although technically in Chelsea, the hotel is at the northernmost end of the neighborhood, in the heart of a working neighborhood, and on the edge of midtown. The streets in front are congested with delivery trucks. There are no clubs or fancy restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Though it won't particularly appeal to club hoppers and gourmands, the location is ideal for shoppers looking for deals at nearby Macy's and business travelers with meetings in midtown or trade events at the Javits Center. It's also a smart, centrally located base camp for tourists.

  • 7th Avenue local (1 train) is on 28th Street.
  • 5-minute walk to Madison Square Garden/Pennsylvania Station
  • 8-minute walk to the Macy's flagship at Herald Square.
  • 8-minute walk to The Empire State Building
  • 8-minute drive to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center

 Bottom Line

This Doubletree is a better-than-average chain option delivering all the DoubleTree essentials -- free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and 24-hour fitness and business centers. It's notable for its full-service restaurant and bar (which many comparable chains lack) and is convenient (if not particularly attractive) location in northern Chelsea near Penn Station and the Empire State Building.
