The hotel was just a convenient location but nothing but issues. Had to call about a noise complaint as well as someone to fix our shower after they originally gave us the wrong room. But worst of all Im now in a battle with the Chelsea and my bank due to the fact that I was charged 3x for the... More

Excellent long weekend at The Chelsea. We stayed in the Tower (recommended). The staff is very good, everywhere. Valet: awesome. Front desk: checked us in very early on a holiday weekend with a smile. Happy Hour, Bar, and Restaurant: friendly and fun. Concierge: helped us out with shopping and a restaurant suggestion. The people who work here definitely won me... More

My boyfriend and I came here on Valentine's Day weekend - all the prices of the other hotels on the boardwalk were much too expensive, but I got a great deal at the Chelsea for 160 and had free valet parking, 50 dollar dining credit and a bottle of a Prosecco and a cake. The room was nice with a... More

I stayed in the Chelsea this winter with my girlfriend and we loved it! The hotel is luxurious, with a charm that harkens back to Atlantic City’s prohibition days. The room was small but comfortable with a nice little balcony and seating area. The bathroom was gorgeous, all marble, ultra-modern with a spa-like quality. The hotel itself is quiet which... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The room was ok. Had the heater on 70f, but it was still very cold inside all the time! The shower sucked. Took forever to rinse the hair. The only thing I liked was the bed and the cover. I paid 500$ for 2 nights. Would not stay there again.

We booked a room at the Chelsea for the Valentines weekend, Sunday night. We've stayed here before, maybe two years ago. Man! Did this place go down the toilet! On the Friday before our stay, I missed a phone call, with a Jersey area code. I looked the number up, and it was the Chelsea. I called them right back,... More

I just read that someone said "The Chelsea" was "Horrible"... Well, I don't know what Chelsea they stayed at, but my wife and I chose "The Chelsea" in Atlantic City on the boardwalk to celebrate my birthday. We decided on the Chelsea instead of Caesars Palace because of the price was manageable, and I have to say it was an... More

I am shocked at the handful of positive reviews this place still has! The only thing I can think of is that there are employees being paid to make up reviews. Do not stay here no matter what kind of deal you're getting on a room rate! Having stayed at The Chelsea several times 3 or 4 years ago, I... More

We usually stay at the Tropicana, but was much more expensive, then sold out.. so choose the Chelsea right next to Trop. Loved staying at this smaller hotel. Had a comfortable, king size bed, room with great view overlooking the ocean. Staff was very helpful. Really great option to big, sometimes smoky, crowded casino hotels. Cool bar on the 5th... More

I have to say that poor describes my experience with this hotel so far. My girlfriend and I made special plans to go to Atlanic city from Delaware to see some of our favorite bands. The tour had to be canceled after one of the lead signers broke his ankle. We contacted them as soon as possible to cancel the... More
