About The High Line Hotel

Nestled within a cluster of landmarked buildings in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood sits The High Line Hotel, an 1895 red brick Collegiate Gothic jewel originally built as student housing for the General Theological Seminary. A peaceful sanctuary, the hotel offers 60 oversized, light-filled rooms that blend vintage details with modern amenities. Dotted with flickering gas lamps, the boxwood-lined, fountain-accented front garden and back patio are neighborhood gathering spots where locals and their dogs can be found enjoying pink Champagne or espresso from Manhattan's only Intelligentsia outpost -- and fast free Wi-Fi.

Editor’s Notes

Why we love it…

This stunning boutique property emanates an old-world charm that can’t be feigned. Its eclectic-meets-vintage styling creates a chic, nostalgic feel. Set at a historic seminary, The High Line Hotel makes for an incredible wedding venue with surrounding gardens and a gothic-style refectory.


For the couple…

Looking for a historic venue in the heart of New York City that spills with character and style. Couples seeking an architectural space steeped in drama will adore this property.


Styling tips…

Think opulent elegance but approach it consideredly. The Refectory is a striking space that suits bold styling, but be careful not to get swept up too much and overdo it. Complement the drama of The Refectory by arranging long communal tables that stretch across the hall and adorn with an abundance of candles and metallic tableware. Keep florals rambling and romantic, or consider switching this out for an avant-garde installation.
