Located just blocks away from the Fashion Institute of Technology and tucked in the heart of Chelsea, the new Hotel Hayden feeds on the energy of three of New York City’s most enduring and iconic commercial neighborhoods. At the intersection of the Fashion District and the Flower District and the eternally trendy Meatpacking District, it’s a modern boutique gem just steps from world-famous local landmarks (including the Fashion Institute of Technology and Madison Square Garden) and New York City's hottest new art galleries and restaurants. Formerly the Hotel Indigo Chelsea, the new hotel welcomes arriving guests with 122 stylish guest rooms and suites, crave-worthy Greek cuisine at Mykonos Blue, a round-the-clock Fitness Studio, 24/7 Business Center, and a rooftop bar with NYC skyline views both old (vintage water towers) and new (the sparkling Freedom Tower).  At Hotel Hayden, we’re all about anticipating your needs. Whether it’s fast, reliable WiFi, a workout that fits your schedule (even if it’s before dawn) or a welcome treat for your four-legged travel companion, we won’t stop until we know we’ve provided the service and amenities that are essential to your New York City stay.
