Motto by Hilton




January 24, 2021 – Located in one of Manhattan’s most dynamic areas, the exciting new property aims to provide guests with an authentic neighbourhood experience.

New York City welcomes first Motto by Hilton hotel

A new lifestyle offering

The 42-storey, 374-key Motto by Hilton New York City Chelsea is now open in the Chelsea Arts District of New York City. Hilton Worldwide’s inaugural lifestyle hotel in The City That Never Sleeps was designed by architecture and interior design firm Stonehill Taylor.

The design-led hotel – the first newbuild in Motto’s portfolio – is located a short walk from landmarks like the Flatiron Building, Madison Square Park and the High Line and within easy reach of multiple transit stations.

“We are thrilled to welcome guests to Motto New York City Chelsea, a major milestone for this quickly growing brand and perfect addition to Hilton’s burgeoning lifestyle category,” said Matt Schuyler, Hilton’s chief brand officer. “This hotel exemplifies what it means to be a lifestyle property – it is centrally located in one of the city’s most desirable areas, incorporates unique and modern design elements, and encourages guests to connect with the neighbourhood culture by providing them with authentic and locally minded experiences.”

Bassim Ouachani, general manager, added: “Chelsea is a neighbourhood unlike any other and the entire Motto Chelsea team is excited to welcome guests and locals to experience all this property has to offer. Combining unmatched hospitality, sleek and smart design, and a prime location, Motto Chelsea is sure to offer an authentic taste of all New York City has to offer.”

A reflection of the area

Guests can expect sleek and modern rooms with unobstructed views of the city, high-quality mattresses, flexible sleeping setups, smart technology and sound-absorbing surroundings. The hotel’s 19 sets of connecting rooms benefit from Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton technology, simplifying travel for larger groups.

Motto by Hilton New York City Chelsea promises to celebrate the work of local artists, not least with the inclusion of a stained-glass reception desk backdrop paying tribute to the Chelsea Arts District. The hotel’s design also takes inspiration from the number 24, referencing its location on 24th Street. Design accents include the use of Chromium, the 24th element on the periodic table, and 24-karat gold.

Guests and locals can dine at the hotel’s full-service restaurant, craft bar and lounge Bar Cicchetti, designed and operated by restaurateur Fabio Viviani, which offers seasonally inspired cuisine along with craft beer and cocktails.

The lobby, Motto Commons, provides a neighbourhood gathering space complete with coffee bar, sunken conversation pit, and flexible event and meeting space with a board table. And Motto Commons’ second floor accommodates up to 150 people in a space that benefits from having an outdoor terrace.

These facilities are complemented by an onsite fitness centre featuring Hydrow equipment. Encouraging exploration of the surroundings, Motto Hosts are on hand to introduce guests to the local neighbourhood and the rest of New York City.
