I booked through Priceline and was initially given a room on the 3rd floor of the Annex. I had no idea what the Annex was/is but apparently it's the skidrow of the Chelsea hotel. Complete with seedy red sign, dismal elevator, scuffed walls, a complimentary rotten fish smell and a room straight out of a homeless shelter. W..T../F?! I called... More

I have never in my life experienced a more horrid hotel than The Chelsea Annex. Obviously the owners must have died or are unaware that they still own this wretched heap of infectious waste. I stayed one Saturday in February; it was cheap, but lots of rooms in AC are cheap in the winter, so I booked it. The lobby... More

So I booked this room before looking at the reviews. Honestly, your opinion is all going to vary upon your expectations. Almost everything that everyone wrote was true. The paper states 2 queen beds, which were actually full beds. The beds were probably the best thing in the room. The dresser drawers do continue to open, so there may also... More

Staff extremely pleasant. Rooms are extremely dated, smell like stinky feet/body odor, went to check into room, there was a solo cup full of urine in the corner - so it shows that they don't take pride into cleanliness. The desk/bureau was worn with drawers that were off the tracks, no doors on closet, paid additional money for parking and... More

Two years ago we stayed at the Chelsea Luxe Tower for New Years Eve. While it was not a 5 star experience, it was clean, upbeat and reasonably priced. This year, we returned and found ourselves in the Annex.The hallway to the elevator was dark, the elevator was dirty, there was a large hole in the wall (4th floor). The... More

I stayed in a suite in the main part of the hotel...eh hated it...the fire place was cool but it was so dark and eerie there...now on to the annex...this was a groupon or living social deal and I'm so disappointed. It was dark creepy, out dated, and reminded me of the bates motel...will not be back here...sorry

Holy Cartwheels Batman, I want to meet the guy (or gal) behind the marketing campaign. I would also like to meet their photographer. They polished up this turd to look like the Hope Diamond and did a great job at it, very deceptive and very convincing. This place is obliviously trying to appeal to the budget conscious boutique hotel seeker... More

The Annex at The Chelsea was horrible. My husband and I checked out moments after we saw the room. This was the light in the room and this is not the worst part. I would never recommend staying here and now that I have seen the Annex I won't stay in the nice part of The Chelsea again. The company... More

Probably one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in! Outdated, dirty! They try to put the spin on it being "Retro". No, it's just old and nasty! Maybe the actual "Chelsea" tower might be better, but the Annex is just plain scary!

My husband and went to AC for two nights 10/31 & 11/1 and found the Chelsea online. We book a room in the Annex & it was scary. The door to our room 219 was broken, water marks on the carpet, smells, I can go on and on but you get the point. We immediately went to the front desk... More
