The High Line Hotel

This morning I came, invited by the General Manager, to do a quick site inspection of the fairly new The High Line Hotel, right across the High Line in the heart of Chelsea, over 10th Avenue between 20th and 21st Street, in New York. A peaceful location, full of serenity and stillness, right in the center of Manhattan. Formerly Desmond Tutu Conference Center. Neo-Gothic brownstones, each of The High Line Hotel’s 64 rooms (including 5 beautiful cosy Suites) evoke a bygone era of a graciously decorated guesthouse. Guests will enjoy staying in light-filled rooms featuring beautiful hardwood floors and one-of-a-kind locally sourced furniture. Oversized beds with crisp cotton linens provide a perfect night’s sleep, and plush robes invite you to relax after a long day. All rooms feature large windows offering dazzling views of the High Line Park or their enclosed private-garden oasis.

Guests are encouraged to enjoy a perfectly brewed espresso prepared by our Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea baristas in the lobby. I reality liked the hotel, it is the type of properties I enjoyed, where boutique, quaint with basic limited services, meets understated luxurious touches, with a twist of local charm.

NOW the great surprise to me, was the Refectory ballroom and staircases, which immediately transported me to a medieval atmosphere. This is a space you may rent for multiple private events, and more so for weddings, with access through a private garden, to the local Chapel.
