Enjoy A Taste Of Classic New York At “The Moore”

There’s a cozy little place in Chelsea where you can still enjoy a slice of stripped down, classic New York. The Moore is Manhattan’s most delightful new boutique hotel, where weary travelers can get the chance to live in the city like a local.

The hotel is named after American poet and scholar, Clement Clarke Moore. Chelsea was the name of Moore’s family’s estate on the west of Manhattan and is where the trendy neighborhood of today gets its name. Clement Clarke Moore inherited the land and donated the apple orchard to become the General Theological Seminary. He continued to sell off and donate various parts of his estate and was an essential figure in developing the area of Chelsea throughout the 19th century.

The rooms are comforting in their simplicity. The color palette is exclusively made up of organic colors and textures. It’s just crisp white sheets against dark teakwood wall panels, oakwood floors and a beautiful custom wardrobe made of the same material. The minimal pop of color comes from the understated hunter green headboard etched with geometric prints. The stark simplicity creates a familiar and homey place to rest your head after a day out in the bustling city. The vibe harkens back to an urban New York apartment in the 1930’s. All of this is made even more ideal with picturesque views of the Empire State Building in some of the rooms. It’s the perfect accommodation to give visitors that classic chic but cozy New York feel.

The Moore’s rooftop is an exciting highlight of the property. Out on the 6th floor, you can enjoy quintessential New York views of surrounding brick brownstones, Midtown skyscrapers and the sleek top of the Empire State Building. The rooftop turns into Moore Wine bar in the warmer seasons, which is the perfect place to enjoy eclectic wines and snacks with a view.
