We had a very nice 5 night stay at The Leo House. The Chelsea neighborhood is full of places to eat and close to river front parks and museums. The Building was originally a boarding house for immigrants long ago and while well maintained, still has the character of that era. Rooms were clean and while some reviews have complained about noise we did not have any problems. Every single staff person we met was super friendly and helpful and the hot breakfast buffet (Monday - Saturday) was very good! We will stay again on our next visit to NYC.

This is a friendly no frills hotel, what it lacks in fashion it more than makes up for in hospitality. The breakfast served each day for guests is just the best, and included in the price of the hotel stay. I highly recommend this historic guest house, that is Catholic light! Cool religious art, a computer room, and a lounge for reading on the second floor feel cozy and warm. Great front desk help, very secure, convenient to subway and just two blocks from 7th Avenue. Along the way you'll see the famous Chelsea Hotel. Walk the other way for 3 blocks and you are at the famous Highline Elevated park. Very happy, and I will be back.
