Very well located, charming place in Truman street. 3 free parking. Nice rooms, do not hesitate ! Receptionists make reservation at restaurants. Be careful, ask for a room closed to the swimming pool for a goos internet connexion.

Although we hadn't chosen to stay here. when we checked in Beth could not have been more helpful. She took us through everything pointing out local attractions. Full marks to her :-) Because we were supposed to be staying next door they upgraded us to a Junior suite. Unfortunately the 4 junior suites are set in a block at the...

We can make it very simple. Just walk up the steps to the office, be careful, on the broken steps. Entering to there reception area notice the carpet stains, the general condition of there office. The entrance tells it all.

Lovely historic buildings in Key West. Small town so everything is very reachable. As its a period building our room was quite small as we expected. Small pool. Breakfast fine.

Dear Lynn, Thank you for writing! I think that perhaps you might have written to Expedia instead because we do not have any record of your emails. I did, however, check with our Chelsea House front desk and unfortunately, we do not have any shirt of any kind listed for you or your room in our lost and found record...

We decided less than a week before to go to Key West to celebrate my other half's birthday. I was very happy that Chelsea House had a room available for us. Before arriving, I called and spoke to Bryan about me having flowers delivered. He let me know that he would personally take care of making sure they were in...

We have just returned from 3 nights at the Chelsea House Pool & Gardens in Key West Florida. There were 4 of us staying and we liked Key West and our accommodations so much that we extended our stay an extra night. Key West is vibrant and it is best to stay in the old town within walking distance of...

I've taken a while to write this review because my last trip to KW was almost perfect. I had the review in my head - great location, great staff, small but comfy room, no complaints - until the last day. I've never experienced this and am still uncomfortable writing about it. It's New Years and so there was plenty of...

Dear Cindy P, Thank you, so much, for writing. I spoke both with our housekeeping staff and manager at Chelsea House again to follow up on your concern. Our housekeeping staff prides itself upon their high standards of cleanliness, honesty and integrity.

Unfortunately we could spend only one night in this lovely hotel, which is situated in the historical disctrict and has a free of charge parking place. We arrived significantly earlier than the official check-in time, but the lady in charge was very kind and provided us our room right away. She gave us all the information we needed. The room...

Arrived in Key West with no room booked and drove down Truman Ave. Saw the vacancy sign and a car park! so turned in. The desk staff were very helpful and let us view a room before we booked two nights. Yes the room was at the top of the house so two flights of stairs but that was not...
