The hotel was known as The Gem and The Moore was proposed to solidify the departure from the previous image thus helping improve any undesired perception the old hotel had, so they called it like that in honor to Clement Clarke Moore who was Chelsea´s original founder. A Moore was also a writer, the writer of The Night Before Christmas, this helped convey the hotel an intellectual feeling.
The Moore has that residential sensibility that makes you feel like a local, like you belong. It is the go-to-stay for anyone seeking to experience New York City through the lens of a local. Tucked in the heart of Chelsea, we are a place between the subtle and the bustle. It has a well thought-out modern design; where feel good hospitality and simple elegance meet.
