Sam was a great host, he was in contact with us before our arrival and was at the apartment to welcome us upon our arrival.
The apartment itself was great, we could not have picked better. It was stylish, clean and in a fantastic location. The apartment was a great size for two people with a kitchen/lounge area (complete with “projector” television), separate bedroom with queen size bed and a decent sized separate bathroom.
There are so many places that are only a short walk from the apartment – i.e. the Meatpacking District, Chelsea Market, The High Line, Union Square, West Village – all within a 10 minute walk. We walked most places but for those that prefer the subway there is a station located right outside the front of the building. The building itself was modern with doorman and gym.
I could not recommend this apartment more for those that want to be based in the Chelsea area.
Sam was very accommodating. The description of the apartment was completely accurate and he was very helpful with checking in to make sure everything was going alright. He was a perfect host and we would book with him again without hesitation!
thank you to sam for his hospitality. his apartment, ideally located in the trendy meatpacking district is a real pleasure. a quality decoration and a terrace where you can relax, all with charm and good taste!
Sam is an excellent host, and his apartment is fabulous. Wonderful contemporary design and comfort, all the conveniences you could ask for. While we didn't use it much because we were out and about, the entertainment system is great, from the sound to the projection. Everything was immaculate.
The location was perfect, with Chelsea, Meatpacking, and West Village right there, and everything else a quick metro trip away. The building is adjacent to the subway station, so easy to get anywhere in the city and beyond. Close at hand are good local and major markets (Trader Joes and Whole Foods, Chelsea Market and more), great restaurants, from local to renowned - Del Posto is 2 blocks away.
If Sam's condo is available when we're in the city again, we'll be there!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Sam's lovely apartment. It is beautifully furnished, has a marvelous outside balcony, comfortable bed and very clean. Sam called us personally before we arrived, welcomed us to his place and was graciously friendly. He had specific instructions, which he emailed, and it made it convenient for us to follow.. oh and the TV sound system is awesome. A great place to stay in a great City

Sam's place is perfect. I enjoyed staying there so much that I am reticent to write this review as I want it to be available every time I go to New York. It really has everything you could possibly want. Modern fixtures, a great balcony, comfortable furniture, great kitchen and bathroom, one of the best entertainment systems I've ever seen (including a projector, various game systems, and a sound system you can stream music to from any iPod or iPhone on the wireless network). We really loved the place. Sam was out of the country throughout the process, but was able to coordinate everything and was a great host. I couldn't possibly recommend more highly.
Amazing!! I was privileged to stay at Sam's place. Not only is the apartment itself wonderful, spacious & luxurious, there is also a balcony with a wonderful view and a rooftop with a spectacular view of the city! Not to mention the doormen; who are very friendly and accommodating. The people that live in the building are also friendly and welcoming should you bump into them.
This place is so wonderful, I want to move into the building! :)
Sam is extremely communicative & informative. His apartment is extremely clean & fresh. There is a washer/dryer in the apartment & dry cleaning delivered should you need this organised (ask the doorman).
The area is in a perfect spot, with the Meatpacking District at arms length, shopping around the corner & some great restaurants and bars all within a couple blocks from the apartment.
I would recommend staying at this place to anyone who is looking for comfort & luxury. I would be honoured to stay there again. Thanks so much Sam.
Sam and his group were great. They left the house clean and were very respectful of te property. They also replaced items in he house that they used, ie propane for the BBQ, when not asked to, which I thought was very cool. Sam was also on top of the communication re key drop off, etc and made a real effort to making a good impression. I would recommend him to all.
