We recently spent several nights at The Chelsea in Atlantic City. The hotel is actually two distinct buildings connected on the ground floor by a corridor. There is the main Chelsea hotel which is a twenty story building and there is The Annex a former 5 story motel type complex. We got to experience both the hotel and Annex during... More

Our overall experience at the Chelsea was great! We had never stayed in Atlantic City before, having spent many summers visiting nearby Ocean City, NJ, but never venturing over to AC. Our daughter gave us a weekend stay at the Chelsea via a groupon promotion. We were a bit nervous reading some of the hotel reviews and some of the... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times it is not a flashy casino type hotel but rather a European style boutique hotel which offers two pools the beach right nearby and very clean rooms at a very modest price I particularly like this Hotels location as it is very close the Tropicana which offers Starbucks and plenty of places to...

All in all I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. The lack of organization shown by the staff was really terrible. The room was nice so it's unfortunate for them that their service is so bad. Luckily we didn't spend much time at the hotel. It was really mostly the front desk/lobby that was a disaster. Not having rooms... More

The website looks great, nice job of photo shopping, however the experience turns out to be very disappointing. My girlfriend and I wanted a week away and from what I saw on the website for pics it looked to be the perfect place! However upon check in it immediately turned out to be something far short of what I was... More

This is an aging property that seems to be adrift with no updates or physical improvements. Such a shame, since the staff tries VERY hard and is mostly Courteous and Service Oriented. It should be clear that the Annex is awful and no place to lodge. The Luxe Tower is clean and nice, but aging quickly. Furnishings show wear, wallpaper... More

My first time to Atlantic City I was not impressed. First one would think this place would be clean with beautiful a boardwalk and you would feel very safe. But on the contrary it is the total opposite. Atlantic City looks as if it's just recovery from 5 years of war; with run down hotels in the middle of a... More

When the Chelsea opened in 2008 it was a trendy boutique hotel with attention for detail. When we revisited this year for July 4th the hotel has turned into a cheap and loud party hotel....all is basic and not well maintained. The mini bar was half empty. There is not even a binder with hotel info in the room: everything... More

I always end up staying here because its the best value in Atlantic City. I usually get prices for under $100. its a nice clean hotel with a good restaurant, 2 pools and next to the beach. They had a DJ at the pool too. Doesn't get better. No casino but I'm not a gambling person so I don't need... More

Just got back from a three night stay at The Chelsea Hotel and can't wait to go back! The entire staff (parking attendants, valets, concierge, front desk clerks, spa staff, pool attendants and waiters and waitresses) were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Every part of the hotel I was in was spotless (one exception being the stairwells). Classy décor and... More
