The High Line Hotel, Chelsea
The High Line Hotel opened this summer a block away from Chelsea's former railway track of the same name. Rooms inside the former seminary campus building bear dusky hues, woven rugs and antique furniture. There are decorative fireplaces in some, anglepoise lamps in others and local C.O. Bigelow toiletries throughout. The Intelligentsia coffee bar handles grab-and-go breakfasts.
