“In a city whose bars are mostly dark and underground, a bright, open rooftop represents the ultimate escape…

…ideally, to a warmer, less-crowded, more laid-back place. Of all the red-hot cocktail aeries that have opened in the past few years (Plunge at Hotel Gansevoort, A60 at 60 Thompson), Cabana at the Maritime fulfills the fantasy best. In the summer, it feels like a trendy L.A. nightclub: heat lamps, leafy plants, strappy sandals, and halter tops. After a few cocktails, the tan and trim lounging on deep blue cushions and melding into the tropical wallpaper could actually be actors, and quite often, they are. Last summer, Sean Penn, Sam Rockwell, and the sisters Hilton were regulars.”

The Maritime Hotel in downtown New York City

The Maritime Hotel enlists a warm and friendly team that is not only connected to the urban energy of downtown New York, but takes pleasure in sharing it with our guests. Below is your quick guide to navigating our Chelsea and Meat Packing neighborhoods of New York City and is here to help you make the most of your visit.

About our Neighborhood

The neighborhood of Chelsea is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is located on the West Side of Manhattan just south of New York’s Garment District and north of Greenwich Village and the historic Meat Packing District. It sits just off the Hudson River and is home to the Chelsea Piers, once the primary luxury cruise ship terminal from 1910 to 1935. In addition to welcoming arriving merchant marines and longshoremen, Chelsea was the heart of the motion picture industry before World War I and by the late 19th century, Chelsea was the center for American theater.

Today Chelsea has become the focal point for the New York art scene as galleries began to move from SoHo in the late 1990’s from 16th Street to 27th Street along 9th & 10th Avenues. In addition to galleries, the Rubin Museum of Art, New York Live Arts and the legendary Joyce Theater all call Chelsea their home including an inspiring nine-story glass sculpted structure by world renowned architect, Frank Gehry.

The High Line

Built in the 1930’s, the High Line is an abandoned 1.45 mile section of a former elevated freight train railroad that spans Manhattans West side between 34th Street through Chelsea and the Meat Packing District.

New York City, with the help of world renowned architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, is now converting this old stretch of mercantile waterfront into one of the city’s biggest expansion of natural parks and recreation space to date. It will feature lush green landscaping, multi-level sidewalks, sun decks, park benches, water elements and picnic areas.

Section 1 of the new elevated landscape opens on June 9th from Gansevoort Street to the Maritime Hotel on 20th Street for previews of the park. The signature landscaping by designer Piet Oudolf of James Corner Field Operations are on view.

The remaining construction of the High Line continues but when completed, is sure to define 21st century architecture and design.
