I returned to my favorite Key West Hotel, The Chelsea House on the weekend of 8/19 for 2 nights. My room was a beautiful room on the third floor with a deck on the outside. I noticed it had new furniture since my last visit, which made the deck feel brighter and overall more cozy. We spent Saturday at the... More

We enjoyed the private rooms and pool decks. The rooms were clean & cozy with a bed and breakfast feel. The staff was friendly and knowledgable in both current and historic features of the area. Walking distance from Duval street was a plus. A must stay!

Chelsea House is part of a chain of hotels in Key West. We loved our room. It had a balcony that overlooked a pool and twin steeples of a church. Beautiful view and the place was clean, pool area very well kept. Nice breakfast with fresh juice, fruit, eggs, muffins, bagels, croissants,and delicious coffee and teas. Very relaxing and the...

Let me start by saying I originally had booked to stay at the Chelsea for a Thursday night before we checked into a house I was renting from Friday to Monday. My arrival changed and we ended up coming into Key West on Wednesday instead, unfortunately the Chelsea was booked so we had to stay elsewhere :( From the conversation... More

Everything was delightful. Check in staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome instantly. It was absolutely no problem asking for something - great service. The hotel is a traditional Key West style and was beautiful. Everything was clean and comfortable. Though the rooms and the pool are not massive this is more than made up for in the... More

I just returned from four nights at the Chelsea Hotel. First.... the front desk staff was very welcoming and fun to talk with.. they were there to help answer any question you may have about the area. The rooms are charming BUT SMALL. We were in the basic room with a queen bed. There is room for only one nightstand,... More

So disappointed. Was really looking forward to our stay, but just couldn't do it. Pictures make it look so nice, but it really needs a lot of work to make it what you expect from the pix. Ants all over the room and a little roach on the wall, not to mention that the room wasn't cleaned thoroghly. There was... More

Absolutely charming hotel! After discovering my reservation with a different company didn't go through, Erin at the front desk seamlessly fixed my dilemma and even offered us a direct booking discount. We stayed in the Butterfly room. It was very clean and smartly decorated. Outdoor porches are attached to most of the rooms. Very safe and secure area. Grounds were... More

We arrived(3 couples) on 7/5 for a week to celebrate my birthday and our friends anniversary. Check in was a breeze. The ladies in the office could not do enough for us. My friend shipped down decorations so the hotel could decorate the room for me. What a surprise. The manager(Matt) gave us a bottle of champagne. The location was... More

Overall we were impressed with the accommodations. Perfect location central to everything with Seven Fish and Better Than Sex (dessert place) right around the corner. We were in 34C which was on the third floor which is why I give it 4 and not 5. It was just a bit of a hassle getting our luggage up the stairs and... More
