I stayed at the Chelsea last Sunday with my sister, girls night away. We got a good deal thru Groupon, $99 for an ocean view king room.
So, it's far enough away from the hubbub to actually enjoy quiet time on the boards and an empty beach (off season). It's also only a short walk to all the activity you could want; casinos, shows, restaurants, shopping. It's the best of both worlds.
Pros: Our room was on the 19th floor, great ocean view. Bed was comfy, lots of fluffy down covers and pillows. The room was clean. The rainfall shower was refreshing. Very good night sleep (that could've been due to alcohol). The decor is cute cheap chic. The location really was perfect, not too near, not too far.
Cons: it took 3 trips back to the desk after checking in to get my key card to work. Not a huge deal, but annoying. The pool was closed (ok, again it was off season). The hotel has a nightclub (closed), a rooftop bar (closed), and a restaurant/bar which had been open and empty at happy hour, but when we tried to stop in after dinner for drinks it was----wait for it! closed.
The parking was mandatory valet which would've been ok if we were going to be planted there but we wanted to drive over to the marina casinos and then elsewhere the next morning. Each time we needed to ask our car to be brought out, which involves tipping multiple times. Then, they told us they close the parking area on Monday for the week so we had to leave. We had been checking out so we were leaving anyway but what if we were staying another night or two? I guess you resort to street parking.
All in all, I really DID like this hotel. I would recommend it. I'm sure during the summer it draws a crowd.
