Two friends and I stayed at the Chesterfield in October after our cruise. I read some reviews and decided to give it a shot. Having stayed at Haddon Hall the year before, anything else was a serious improvement. We arrived a few hours early and had no problems checking in. The bellman took our bags to the room on the elevator. Note: If you're claustrophobic or weigh more than 110 lbs., DO NOT TAKE THE ELEVATOR. It's like a padded coffin that creaks! Our room was small, as most boutique hotel rooms are, but it was very chic and clean! The white linens and the contemplorary touches made squeezing 3 people in a double-bed room bearable. The bathroom was very European--the entire bathroom was a shower: no doors, no tub, no partitions. And everything gets wet. ANOTHER NOTE: Put your belongings underneath the sink to keep them dry during a shower. We didn't interact much with the staff, but they were courteous enough when we did.
The hotel's greatest asset is its location. We were close to all the action and then some--the hotel has a bar in the lobby where party-goers frequent nightly. I'm glad we booked on the 3rd floor away from the elevators. Although we could still hear the thumping of the bass until 3 a.m., all other noise was not a factor. The beds were comfortable and there were no awful smells (a la Haddon Hall). The cleaning service did a good job. We never saw any bugs of any kind, thank goodness. I have two small complaints: the art deco look is fine, but that's still no reason to dim the halls to nearly pitch black. The orange walls is one thing, but for safety sake I hope this hotel invests in brighter light bulbs. And why put the room numbers are on the bottom of the door? That's just plain silly.
Overall, I had a good time. I would stay again, but I would book two rooms if traveling with more than 2 people.
