“Overnight at the Chelsea Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

We just stayed overnight at the towers at the Chelsea this past weekend.
Room was clean enough and pretty spacious. However, the entire hotel motif is very dated. Felt like a trip back to the 60s or 70s. It's very obvious that the hotel is aging. Also, We did NOT like the area of the boardwalk it is located at. All the newer hotels (including the new Revel) are located 20-30 blocks north of the Chelsea. Most of the hotels down here are really aging and struggling to survive. I think the nearby Hilton (no longer a Hilton) has changed owners 3 or 4 times in the past few years.
Later at night (11-12) we just didn't feel like the boards felt safe down here. Lots of drinking and shady characters. One of the pushcart guys told us that this is a rough area later at night.

Room Tip: Stay in the towers, NOT the annex.

Stayed here last weekend on a last minute getaway. I usually stay in casinos when I go to AC, but will definitely be coming back to The Chelsea. This was a great change of pace from the loud casino hotels where you often experience loud drunks and overused hotel rooms. It is however, conveniently located right next to the Tropicana.

We had a room in the Luxe Tower, the bedding was amazing, as was the bathroom and shower. We ordered room service in the morning which was delivered in about 15 minutes after we ordered.

I would definitly reccomend The Chelsea to anyone looking for a First class experience in Atlantic City.

I must admit I was a little nervous about this hotel after reading some of the reviews. However, from the time we arrived until check out we were treated very well. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and nicely decorated. My husband had an enjoyable massage followed the steam room. On a side note we did upgrade to the Luxe so I can not review the Annex only that it looked more like a motel, than hotel.

This full service hotel is absolutely amazing, and will absolutely stay here if I return to Atlantic City. We arrived a little early so the (very friendly!!!) front desk staff put us in a King Suite in the Luxe tower on the 19th floor. Looking out the window, we could see the beach to the right, and the city to the left. The bed was big, fluffy, and had tons of pillows. In fact, when we got there we fell asleep for 4 hours (so much for exploring!!). The bathroom is spacious, clean and well lit. They provide robes also, which is one of my favorite things about hotels, silly I know.
We were running late for a show at the House of Blues, but it wasn't a problem getting a cab, they were lined up on the street outside the hotel. There is a lounge on the 5th floor that serves adult bevvies and food between a certain time, but sadly we slept through that. The room has a wet bar, a flat screen tv, retro-inspired decor, and is clean, clean, clean! The bellman and valet workers are all super friendly and eager to help. Everyone made us feel right at home, and I would definitely recommend staying here if you don't need to be right on top of a casino.

Room Tip: We stayed on the highest floor (19) and had a great view (see pics). No balcony, but a window was en...

First time visit at the hotel was for a friend who was getting married, my husband and I decided to stay over and it was a great decision. The service at the Wedding was great and the food was very good. Loved the fact that the casinos were close but we did not have to deal with all the people in the casinos 24/7. Love that at the Chelsea you only get the people who stay there. The bartenders were great at the wedding and the servers were very nice to and always trying to help out. I would 100 percent come back and stay at the Chelsea Hotel.
