This was my second stay within a month at The Chelsea. My first visit was such a great experience, I couldn't wait to plan my next trip. When we first arrived, I was dreading parking the car, as it seemed to take forever the first time we stayed. I was pleasantly surprised when I was greeted almost immediately by Alex,... More

Since it is always important for TripAdvisor readers to hear from both sides of the table, your vehicle came in damaged, even so, we completed a full investigation. After your discussions with our front office manager and security manager, in which you made clear you were not happy with our response, we apologized. We are disappointed to see multiple negative...

I have read mixed reviews of The Chelsea but all I can say that we had a great experience. We got a deluxe king room with ocean view and it was clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. We especially loved the 5th floor pool with fun music and a great bar. It is on the boardwalk so... More

Driving up to the hotel and viewing it from the outside made me want to immediately cancel my stay. The building looks old, neglected, and dangerous. The lobby was small and unimpressive, but our room was actually pretty nice! (Note - we stayed in the renovated part, was told by bell boy that we got lucky - other parts of... More

Paid over 350 for one night, when we first got there it took us almost an hour just to get to our room because the elevators are so slow, the carpet in the hallway was soaked with water and horrible smell in the hallway with very bad paint job on the walls. The room had no fridge and no microwave... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a little trip to AC for a night and booked a room at the Chelsea. I didn't know what to expect since I hadn't previously been there, but I was definitely surprised and loved every bit of our stay! He worked with the head concierge the day before we arrived (we got there on a... More

The whole place smells like mildew and the lobby and common areas are not well kept and have a lot of abandoned garbage laying around on tables etc. We returned to our room the first day to find a huge wet spot on the carpet making the whole room smell like mildew/mold. The hotel sent up someone from engineering who... More

We stayed here July 3-July 7th. Unfortunately, we booked the room a little over a month in advance so all the good and reasonably priced places were already sold out so The Chelsea would have to do. I read many reviews on trip advisor and was very skeptical. We booked the Luxury King Ocean View Room, which cost nearly $400/night... More

We've been staying at the Chelsea since it opened. This year was the first year we've really started to notice the wear on the property. It's still got the retro South Beach vibe but looks like there has been $0 spent on upkeep since it opened. It also tries to be something it's not - including most of the employees... More

My friends and I checked in on June 29th. I was impressed by the hotel, from the lobby up to my room. Everything was modern, not tired and old like so many`of the older and more well known hotels. The employees were all very friendly and helpful. On my first night I had a problem with a neighbor playing music... More
