Hyatt Place New York / Chelsea

I've noticed a Hyatt Place option when looking at NYC hotels - Hyatt Place New York / Chelsea.

It seems to be in a pretty good location - 24th between 6th and 7th - but I haven't noticed it in searches before.

It's hard to tell if it's a new hotel or an existing property that temporarily closed for COVID. Based on the lack of reviews / information, I'm guessing it's new.

Does anyone have any info on it?

Rates in NYC are pretty great in general right now and the property is pricing in a similar range as the Hotel 50 Bowery and Gild Hall, but I'd guess that when things go back to "normal" it might be a more affordable option.

Now accepting reservations for stays from August 27, 2021 and beyond.

It's a new build by Sam Chang/Gene Kaufman. Tall, slim with the same old boring facade as all of their projects.

Yes, I was looking at dates later in the year.

Rooms sound pretty small even by NYC standards - approx. 200sq ft (I consider about 300sq ft as the average for NYC).

Id guess the bathrooms must be absolutely tiny to accommodate a king bed and a sleeper sofa.

I lived around the block for several years.
Close to Whole Foods Market, several subway stations. Walking distance to Madison Square Park, Penn Station.
There is a homeless shelter on w25th street, between 6th ave & 7th ave ("Bowery Residents' Committee" brc.org). Right across from the new Marriott "Renaissance Chelsea".

Yes, the location seems really convenient, being on the right side of Penn. The whole Penn Station / PABT / Times Square area has degenerated incredibly quickly over the past year and would make this a clear choice vs the HP Times Square property when the prices are roughly the same.

Cat 5

I've just noticed that this is a Category Five property - 20,000 points a night!

This seems pretty ambitious given that it's a Hyatt Place in a city that's probably going to be struggling for the next few years...

Yeah 200 sq ft is small... but the hotel website has updated, and all of the rooms are now advertised as only 180 sq ft. Time to change my reservation.

Not really as all Hyatts in Manhattan are 20K or higher except for Gill Hall.
I am pretty sure you can say the same for the Manhattan Hiltons and Marriott's too,
