This was our first trip to NYC. My partner and I stayed at GEM Hotel for four nights. It was such a quaint location…right at the end of a beautiful row of brownstones. And, the boutique lobby was beautiful. The whole staff was very accommodating and friendly. We will be back this summer! And will be at the GEM. Thank you so much for everything. We love ya!

With over 45,000 participants, the AIDS Walk is the largest AIDS fundraising event in the world. As such, we rely on a volunteer production team from across the country to lend their time and talent to make sure the event goes off without a hitch. We simply could not accommodate this team without the support of the generous and philanthropic folks at The GEM Hotel. We owe a big part of our success to The GEM and we are proud and honored to count them as one of our loyal event sponsors.

The GEM Hotel in Chelsea offers the perfect NYC gayborhood accommodation. It can best be described in 3 ways: location, location, location.

I've been working to make NY my home for quite some time now. Working in Media, it's the only place to be if you want to push your career to the next level. I've been a regular guest at The GEM Hotel (in Chelsea) since the spring of 2010. The GEM Hotel has become my sanctuary. My home away from home. Management has been nothing but accommodating and they recognize how important it is to build relationships with your clients; regardless of the industry you're serving. As a traveling executive, I've stayed at a lot of hotels, but nothing compares to the comfort you experience at The GEM. If you're looking for a hotel that's in a prime location in the city - I HIGHLY recommend their Chelsea hotel for the eye candy! - and an incredibly hospitable staff, The GEM is the place to rest your head. Happy travels.

I love The GEM Hotel. Their Chelsea neighborhood location is the perfect get-away for a gay guy from a conservative small town. It's here that I feel "normal." Until I move to New York City, The GEM Hotel will be my home away from home.
