1940s Atlantic City meets chic, boutique hotel scene, day and night

The first non-gaming hotel to grace the Boardwalk since the 1960s wraps its guests in decor that captures the best of Art Deco, Art Nouveau and cutting-edge design. Fireplace lounges and chill-out bars create a cool boutique experience without the casino clutter. Kick back at the Chelsea's two signature restaurants, a spa and fitness center, two heated saltwater pools or beachside in the Chelsea's seasonal lounge chairs. The rooftop swimming pool is exclusive to Chelsea guests on weekends (and not those in rooms at the Annex next door).

Highlights
  • Glamorous, swanky Atlantic City hotel with direct Boardwalk access to restaurants, casinos, and shopping
  • Two pools and complimentary fitness center
  • 10,000-square-foot Sea Spa offers saltwater-inspired massage and body treatments
  • An intimate nightlife scene in atmospheric indoor and outdoor spaces with DJs, fireplaces and signature cocktails
Rooms

Eight tiers of rooms and suites in the 20-story Chelsea Luxe Tower start with an iPod docking station, flat-screen TV with On-Demand service, bathrobes, work desk and free Wi-Fi in every room. Upgrade from a city to a water view for invigorating scenery. An ocean-view sunroom and custom mini bar set a posh scene in the Chelsea Penthouse Suites. Teplitzky's classic diner downstairs provides room service.

Features

Guests at The Chelsea wake with the sun and hit the beach. Attendants bring towels and lounge chairs, and set up a sun umbrella. Workout-minded guests appreciate the weights, treadmills, cycles and stair climbers in the fitness center, along with towels and chilled water. Power shoppers enjoy a full-day of shopping at The Quarter at Tropicana streetscape. Secure valet parking available (fees apply).

Dining on the 5th offers continental cuisine and signature cocktails accompanied by live music from DJs. The bar is open during Fridays and Saturdays.

Dining

Sink into 1940s supper club ambiance at Dining on the 5th and cocktail lounge, where live entertainment twinkles from a white grand piano. Teplitzky's retro diner serves hearty comfort-food favorites for breakfast and lunch.

Nightlife

The fifth floor of The Chelsea is a self-contained destination for Atlantic City entertainment and nightlife, spilling right out to the pool. Sip champagne and cocktails to a DJ beat in the Living Room with an expansive outdoor terrace. Savvy diners reserve a Hollywood-style booth for dinner with a 1940s Atlantic City feel at Dining on the 5th. At The Chelsea's sophisticated C5, dance til dawn with a cocktail menu and bottle service. The Cabana Club lights up with a seasonal scene around the pool. Excitement along the Boardwalk lies right out the front door.

Needs some TLC

It's an OK hotel. The room's carpeting needed replacing, the wallpaper needed replacing, the mattress was so-so. The doors should be repainted, etc. - all maintenance items. Nothing was glaringly wrong. The oddest thing, the restaurant/lounge was closed by 10pm. Seriously, in AC the lounge closes at 10? Major fail.

Perfect One night getaway

Perfect hotel for a one night or weekend away from home. Only drawback is the high price for breakfast in bed, compared to other hotels in Atlantic City.

Good/Decent hotel at a relatively good price

The place needs a bit of sprucing up in my opinion. It was nice and has a lot of potential but ultimately had nicks and crannies that need repair, not to mention an updated to look to the downstairs pool and seating area. The bar on the 5th floor did have a great view and a few good drinks. The beds were really comfortable, the pillows were really soft and tv was good. The view was nice mostly and the bathroom was better than average. Wasn't happy with the mini fridge which barely even cooled the 20 bottles they had stocked for a huge fee. Location on the boardwalk was pretty good though especially if wanting to be near the Tropicana. A little far from everything else though. Caesars or ballys are both much more central.

Great AC Option

Had been to the pool bar with friends before but never really checked out the hotel. It was perfect for a last minute AC getaway - right on the boardwalk, next door to the Tropicana, and about $250 per night cheaper than any other casino hotel. Most comfortable bed ever! Staff was friendly, but sparse on Sunday (had to wait for the 1 bellman/valet on duty to get my car). Overall very happy and I will stay again at Chelsea on my next trip to AC

Not worth money!

This hotel claims 4-stars, but no thing special. Lobby, entrace, hall way and elavator is not clean. The carpets at the room are so old and not clean. The towels are not clean (a lot brown spots on it), and the shower is worse than Holiday Inn's.

It was ok...

First time to Atlantic city. The pictures online on the Chealsea hotel site are much nicer than reality. The pool area was poor. Staff were not that friendly behind the welcome desk. Decor needs to be updated. The rooms were ok, beds very comfortable. A great short walk to the beach and the beach was beautiful. The location of the hotel is a long walk away from the major casinos, but it's ok.
