As the first non-gaming hotel to open in Atlantic City since the 1960's, The Chelsea aspires to rejuvenate the soul of Atlantic City with intimate surroundings, luxurious amenities, and a modern atmosphere.
The Chelsea occupies the spot where two classic Atlantic City Hotels formerly resided Howard Johnson and Holiday Inn Atlantic City-Boardwalk. The Chelsea's Crystal Ballroom, with a refurbished, original crystal chandelier, sits where the former Howard Johnson Hotel ballroom once resided. Many hotels in the area used to pipe sea water into guestrooms, so as a throwback to this practice, The Chelsea uses saltwater in its ocean-inspired Sea Spa pool.
Guests will find two different types of accommodations at The Chelsea Chelsea Luxe and The Annex. Chelsea Luxe offers upscale amenities in the 20-floor tower of the hotel with choices including the Rock Star and Ocean Penthouse, among others. These rooms offer amenities such as ocean views, flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, iHomes, VIP access to local clubs and the Cabana Club pool. Alternatively, The Annex offers affordable, yet hip lodging for the cost-conscious traveler.
By car The Chelsea hotel sits 70 minutes southeast of Philadelphia International Airport and just under 2 hours from Newark International Airport. Nearby tourist attractions include Steel Pier Amusements, Absecon Lighthouse, Atlantic City Aquarium, and Atlantic City Historical Museum.
