Review Summary


Pros

  • One block from beautiful Madison Square Park
  • Rooms have subdued decor and flat-screen TVs
  • 10-minute walk to the Empire State Building
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • One to four blocks from five subway lines

Cons

  • No on-site gym
  • On-site restaurant closed
  • Rooms can feel cramped

Bottom Line

Located on the far eastern outskirts of Chelsea (more reasonably, the Flatiron District), this Wyndham is a fair pick, for the price. Its 124 guest rooms are on the small side, but nonetheless comfortable. The hotel lacks an on-site restaurant or fitness center, but it's only one block from the locally loved Madison Square Park and its surrounding subway stations, shops, and restaurants. Ace Hotel NY is just a few blocks to the north, but worlds away in terms of style and on-site amenities offered.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Basic, bright hotel located at the crux of several Manhattan neighborhoods

None

Wedged between Chelsea, Flatiron District, and the increasingly cool NoMad area, the Wyndham Garden Hotel is eye-catching from the street, with a column of red, orange, blue, and green tiles covering the center of its facade from top to bottom. Inside, fun and lighthearted lobby decor matches the hotel's colorful exterior: bright accent walls, contemporary art pieces, and large paper overhead lamps. The hotel has hosted a carousel of on-site Italian restaurants; the most current one, Capatosta, is currently closed.

Location

Located near commercial Flatiron's westernmost border, the Wyndham is on a quiet, but very convenient street

Rooms

Quarters are compact, but comfortable 

None

While the hotel exterior and lobby have a funky look, rooms have a more natural, subdued design, with light-wood furniture, beige-and-brown carpeting, khaki-colored bedspreads, and vintage-style floor and table lamps. Framed prints of black-and-white photography and vintage NYC subway maps hang on the pale blue-gray or warm ivory walls. All rooms have large flat-screen TVs. Freestanding wood closets contain irons facilities and ice buckets. Most room categories have shower stalls and no tubs, though a few larger rooms have shower/tub combos. Blue Harmony bath products are provided.

Standard room types are around 200 square feet -- small, but about average for a New York hotel room. King Suite with Balcony rooms are slightly larger at about 300 square feet and include a walkout balcony (a rare feature in New York). One-Bedroom Balcony Suites are 400 square feet, and have a separate living area with a couch and walkout balcony. King rooms and suites come with mini-fridges and microwaves.

Features

Free newspapers and a single computer

None

Capatosta -- the latest on-site eatery iteration -- has closed, joining Italian restaurants Tre Stelle and San Rocco before it. Guests can access an off-site fitness area, use the lone in-lobby computer station, and grab a free Wall Street Journal and USA Today, but that's about it.
