Hotel Description

In a city so crowded with top-shelf boutique hotels, it takes a little bit more to make an impression. And while some local hotels are still busy chasing the latest modern-design high, others opt for the sort of individuality that you won’t find in a furniture catalog. Chelsea’s enormously fun High Line Hotel is a case in point: in contrast with the modern developments that fringe the High Line park, this hotel makes its home in a red-brick Gothic seminary — and its designers, the local duo Roman and Williams, were tasked with creating interiors that live up to the promise of this classic building.

For anyone who’s familiar with their personality-packed, historically savvy work, the outcome was never in doubt. The High Line hotel combines vintage, surplus and salvaged elements with a keen decorator’s eye, and the resulting mixture leaves Manhattan’s high-gloss design hotels in the shade. Spaces are generous, certainly by New York standards — the seminary students were afforded one luxury, at least — and the comforts are small, but thoughtful: down pillows, plush bathrobes, free wi-fi and C.O. Bigelow bath products.

And in contrast with many of New York’s other big boutique names, the High Line aims for something a little quieter, more residential. Let’s just say it’s not in danger of becoming simply a bar with rooms attached. Alta Linea, as the name suggests, recreates Italy's famed aperitivo tradition stateside with seasonal, al fresco plates and some of the city's finest people watching. The hotel is also home to the city’s first outpost of Chicago’s highly regarded Intelligentsia Coffee — a welcome convenience after a night at a restaurant with “Champagne” in its name. All in all, it’s the perfect vantage point to observe this newly resurgent corner of Chelsea making good on the promise of the High Line park project itself.
