My boyfriend and I arrived at the Chelsea on a Thursday evening which was great because it seems we beat the "rush" of the weekend crowd. Valet and front desk were very helpful and we were checked in without issue. We stayed in the Annex (which I chose purposely to enjoy the balcony- which actually did have a partial view of the boardwalk/ocean on the side facing Chelsea Ave.). The room was not exactly what I expected and less than stellar (compared to what I am used to in 3-5 star hotels- I am guessing the rooms in the tower are nicer from what I've read in other reviews??); but it was large, had the basic amenities and the bed was VERY comfortable. There was a picture missing from the wall though, which made me feel a bit sketchy about what was to come for the rest of my stay. I mentioned to the front desk and they assured me that this was basically a part of their "spring cleaning"...I decided not to make a big fuss and give them the benefit of doubt. Outside of the room not being what I expected, we had a wonderful experience! We ate at Teplitzsky's for breakfast everyday which was really tasty, convenient and reasonably priced; also had a romantic dinner at Chelsea Prime one evening- the service and live entertainment were wonderful, along with the food. I also received a facial at the spa which was very nice as well.
It was overall a very pleasant and relaxing stay. We weren't really there to party, but rather to enjoy each other, so it was actually perfect for that with much less chaos being in a non-gaming hotel. I would stay there again for sure....although next time they will have to make sure there is not a random blank space where the artwork is supposed to be :-/.
