A Unique, Holy & Quiet Spot
in the Big Apple of NYC

Leo House New York City Retreat
With the hustle and bustle of one of the busiest cities in the world, The Leo House is, indeed, a unique spot.
It's safe, quiet and centralized location plus it's special religious atmosphere make it an ideal retreat space. The Leo
House is located in three brownstone buildings in the Chelsea section of New York City. The Leo House is the only
Catholic guesthouse in America and is named after Pope Leo XIII. The official name is "The Leo House for German
Catholic Emigrants" and was founded in 1889. 
We have been in our current location at 332 West 23rd Street since 1926 as the inscription reads in the brick just outside
front entrance.  We have been in this location for the past 92 years and we continue to follow our mission of Christian hospitality.
We welcome all religions of the world and we put a premium on "The Art of the Welcome."
The Leo House has 81 rooms and a back garden patio area for meditation and relaxation for people who need some private space.
We also have an in-house chapel, large dining room, commons area, boardroom which opens into a parlor room, and a business center.
The key differentiation factor that makes the Leo House experience very special is the following. We are the only place where guests can go to bed at night, attend morning Mass, in our in-house chapel and celebrated by our in-house chaplain, and in the afternoon, say the chaplet and Most Holy Rosary, all under the same roof.
We hope that everyone can experience the calm and spiritual atmosphere of The Leo House.

2:00 - 5:00pm - Amazing Guided Tour to Sedona's most healing destinations, supporting the day's workshop theme

You plan your vacation, and I'll plan your transformation! Book your lodging and meals (other than lunch), and I'll take care of the rest!
