Notes on the Hotel: The Cambria Hotel in Chelsea, NYC is your place to indulge in the “little (but important) extras” while you’re on the go—like locally inspired meals, and awe-inspiring views from our rooftop lounge. Spacious guest rooms, technologically-savvy meeting spaces and an attentive hotel staff are all a part of what makes staying with us so special. With the culture and vibrance of New York City influencing our style, you’ll know from the moment you first arrive that you’re exactly where you want to be to make the most of your travel. Just a 10 minute walk to Madison Square Garden or the Empire State Building.
Special Worship Service: Those that are interested, we will take a Sunday Morning train over to Brooklyn to visit the famed Brooklyn Tabernacle Church with Pastor Jim Cymbala and the Grammy and Dove award winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. We will walk the Brooklyn Bridge and hang out in DUMBO. It is a community in Brooklyn with arts and culture on every corner.
