The Chelsea ushers in a new era of Atlantic City chic, re-imagining the fabled heyday of "America's Playground" for the savvy modern traveler. The first non-gaming boutique hotel to grace the Boardwalk since the 1960s, the Chelsea captures imaginations by conjuring the long-lost glamour and sophistication of this seaside resort town as a magical retreat where leisure and luxury come together in a perfect blend of great service, true comfort, and alluring spaces. Intimate and exciting, the Chelsea exudes that rare sense of ease in a place that, at every turn, affords its guests the choice of pampered privacy, casual mingling and people watching, or an energized social scene. In its 20 stories, the Chelsea offers cosy fireplace lounges, happening bars, and poolside cabanas. Destinations within this destination include two signature restaurants, a saltwater inspired spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a pristine beach with the only full beach service in Atlantic City, providing luxurious towels, lounge chairs, and umbrellas. The Chelsea's myriad common areas encourage socializing in an array of gathering spots to match any mood. Throughout the hotel, every detail is highlighted by a design and spirit that recall the classic era of Atlantic City's mythic past. From the dark wood panelling, colourful furniture, and dramatic fireplace of the main lobby to the intimacy of the Game Room to the pulsating vibe and cocktail culture of the Terrace Lounge, the Chelsea's design is evocative and comfortable at the same time.

The Chelsea does charge a parking rate daily of $15 plus tax



All guests must be 21 or older to check in

Could have been great

Excellent hotel and location right on the boardwalk and large room with great view, but there were several small things; bad lighting in bathroom, A/C had to be repaired upon arrival, sink was stopped up and no coffeemaker or frig; and one big thing a hotel sponsored DJ party at the pool 17 floors down which shook the windows until 2AM which turned what could have been a great experience into a bad impression..

Does the trick

Stayed in an Ocean King in mid-November. Great view, as promised. Room was clean with new furnishings and bed was comfortable. Check-in was easy, as was check out. Teplitzky's restaurant is pleasant. The enitre experience was enjoyable and what I expected- you won't be awed by the hotel, but it definitely provides a nice room and good location for the money.

A very average stay

The hotel decor is overly modern, but the actual room feels just like any other hotel. It's a dressed up Holiday Inn, but they want to portray a more luxury experience with style over substance. Our toilet was broken when we arrived. Instead of moving us to another room, they insisted on letting maintenance try to fix it. The hotel was not very full. They could have easily moved us instead of making us wait and feeling unsure about where we were staying. (In the end, they fixed it.) The valet was very slow. For a place that only offers valet parking and charges for it, the service needs to be a little quicker. Otherwise, the stay was fine. Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable.

Hotel was nice but room kinda smelled when I came in and refrigerator didt work but room was comfortable. Did not like the fact that i had to have someone else park my car for a charge. Wasn't there long but it was ok.

good location, does not look hotel

it's pretty good location, that's why I made reservation here. there is no casino at this "Motel", so no smoking rooms here. I travel vegas pretty often. at this price point this Motel value is way less than "Hotels" in vegas. would not recommend, but ok for one night staying for gambling at tropicana.

good place

For this price I cannot complain, however it is obvious this place has taken a dive over the last 3-4 years. The service was slow with everything from valet, to the elevators, to check in being a hassle. However, that being said, for the price we paid I could not be happier with our room size and view. I would stay here again for the price bc the value is too good.

Ok hotel

The outside was horrific, looked old and ancient, but the inside was surprisingly nice and comfortable. Pool is small. Very nice lounge with library, great dining area with gorgeous view. No casino. Family friendly.

THE CHELSEA

First off all the "Bayview Luxe Room" had no bay in view at all. Nice view of the giant hotel across from us. When I questioned that, they said that's what they call the "bay view". I guess they could have called it the Eiffel tower" view just as honestly. The room was OK and the bed was good. But save the extra dollars and take a regular "luce" room. Also the "cancellation policy" offered by O*z was an outright sham. A couple of hours later we decided to try to head home a day earlier and tried to cancel. The cancellation fee was greater than the room charge! It was $172 before noon and after, one full day's rental, which was $171.09! July 8, 2014

Average Stay

The location is very convenient- it is right by the boardwalk and beach, and it is walking distance to some of the casinos. The decor is nice, but the space did not feel the cleanest. Our wall mirror was broken, wall paper was peeling, and some spackling on the walls were visible. Over all it was decent. We went Labor Day weekend, so it was a tad pricey. I would go again at a lower price.
