Dear Accommodating Staff of The Chelsea House,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to express my gratitude to you for making my recent stay so very pleasant.

I called the front desk a few times before arriving to Key West and each time I was greeted with a warm, professional, staff member who answered all my questions thoroughly and provided reassurance of my reservation.

Upon arrival, I was welcomed by a young lady at the front desk who offered great local recommendations and easy to follow directions. The Chelsea House was superbly located far enough from Duvall to enjoy the quiet and close enough to walk to all the excitement effortlessly.

I have been to Key West before and unfortunately had a different experience staying with other Hotels. I was apprehensive as often times “charming”, “historic” or “rustic” is used to describe dirty, infested, and poorly maintained. The Chelsea House, however, far exceeded my expectations.

I unpacked my things comfortably in my neat, bright, and tastefully decorated room. The room smelled noticeable clean as though someone had just finished making my room just right for me.

My room was conveniently located near the poolside. The pool area was also clean, comfortable, and serene. During the day I observed many staff members diligently cleaning and grooming the property to maintain its magnificent appearance. Since I made use of the pool so often during my stay, I also took advantage of the opportunity to exchange my towels near poolside for clean towels. The gentleman who is responsible for the laundering of the towels always greeted me warmly and I could see the care he took in picking the nicest towels fresh out of the dryer for me.

This trip was a girls getaway trip. Some of my friends who stayed a nearby hotel opted to spend everyday visiting us at our room as our accommodations were just the best!

The Chelsea House is all that it promises to be. I will most certainly be staying with you again and will be recommending you to anyone who desires a truly great vacation in a clean, safe, and fantastic location.

Kindest Regards.

Thank you for the wonderful email and for the wonderful stay. This was our first time to visit Key West and it couldn’t have been better. Our room was small but efficient, we loved the porch and enjoyed our afternoon breaks there. We definitely love the location of the Chelsea House, it was  close to everything and it made it easy for us to find the landmarks that we were interested in.  We plan on future visits to Key West and we couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else.

My daughter and I were there only there for one night, our mission was to find a place to have a wedding and reception.
We came in on a Monday early, parked the truck and had 3 appointments that day. Of course, we had to cool off and quench our thirst at many of our favorite watering holes. That night we had a great sleep after the Chicago Blackhawks won The “Sir” Stanley Cup.  The next morning had a great breakfast, even though the power went out on the island because of a  rainstorm, and off to 3 more appointments.

It’s a magical place and your historic hotels are the way to go.  We even saw a cat hanging on the roof, typical for Key West.

The hotel was wonderful.  Our room was a little on the tiny side, but it was clean and had a great view with a huge front porch to go out onto and sit and relax.  The pool was nice, breakfast was good, and the staff were very nice.  The location was walkable to the Dry Torguas ferry and also to downtown on Duval Street.  Great restaurants nearby, as well as a CVS pharmacy for any last minute needs.  We would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I came down to celebrate my birthday. We live about an hour and half south of Orlando.  We wanted to get to the keys early and had been driving all night.  We arrived about 7:15am and when we got there we went to the front desk told the girl that we had been driving all night, and asked by some miracle if the room we reserved was available and if we could check in.  When she looked, it was and she promptly checked us in.  The room was so nice and beautiful.  We had a huge window to look out of.  We had never stayed in a B&B before, but we loved it and will definitely be staying again.

The first impression was the Staff and they are so very helpful. Geoff and his Irish counterpart( sorry forgot his name), but both were most helpful to us on arrival and throughout our entire stay. We also met Linda your  Executive Housekeeper and I must say her staff were quite pleasant and the cleanliness was very well done. With 35 years of cleaning experience and as a Master Registered Executive Housekeeper I cannot help but look at the cleaning of our accommodation. They were excellent! We met Betsy and she was so helpful and delightful too. Fancey, our little dog, really enjoyed her visit as well. She received plenty of treats from really nice folks.

You should be proud of your staff and facilities.  Let them know everyday they exceed expectations!

Sincerely,

John and Peggy Poole
