HH Review: Hotel Henri NYC



Located in the heart of Chelsea just walking distance from Madison Square Park sits New York's latest Wyndham property, Hotel Henri. This intimate, no-frills hotel is home to the Jazz Age penthouse bar, Sir Henri, offering craft cocktails & stunning 18th-floor views of Manhattan perfect for enjoying a cocktail overlooking Manhattan’s sunset. The contemporary boutique features dark corridors and theatrical design elements as well as a coworking space and lobby level restaurant Shay & Ivy.


  • Our experience at penthouse bar, Sir Henri was the highlight of our stay- the bar staff was very attentive. This is a fantastic spot to catch the sunset over Manhattan.
  • The lower lobby has a darling co-working space and free coffee available. 
  • Location- Hotel Henri is just a few minutes walking distance from Madison Square Park and the NQR subway lines.
  • The plush bathrobes in the guest rooms!
  • Guests receive 10% off cooking classes at Eataly 


  • The guest rooms were underwhelming, to say the least. The minimal “urban” decor and dark walls made the room feel a bit lifeless. 
  • After 6 pm there was very little natural light and our room has no overhead lights. The only lighting available was the two bedside reading lamps, one of which flickered uncontrollably when I turned it on. 
  • The rooms offer a selection of treats and red wine for purchase and complimentary water bottles.
  • The bedding and pillows were rather uncomfortable and rough. 
  • The bathrooms lacked basic amenities like Q-tips, cotton balls, and a nail file. 
  • Spacious work desks and ample luggage storage available.


  • The hotel restaurant, Shay & Ivy, was not open for services, so we ventured to our favorite Italian market, Eataly, just down the block. 
  • Sir Henri is the intimate penthouse speakeasy on the 18th floor. The bar offers plenty of seating and an open-air terrace overlooking Manhattan. We recommend visiting during sunset hours before it gets too dark inside the bar. This is also a great date spot!
  • Mixology master Gil Bouhana is responsible for the tasty elixirs concocted with locally grown, seasonal ingredients. 
  • Doors at Sir Henri open daily at 5pm


  • Rooms start at $159 a night 
  • The hotel charges $100 for late checkout. 
  • The hotel about three minutes walking distance from nearby NQR trains, Madison Square Park and various dining and shopping options
