This was the 2nd year in a row that my wife and I stayed at Chelsea House and we loved it. The recently added hammock to the porch was a great addition! The staff is amazingly trained and customer service is high on the list of traits they focus on! As the president of a service industry business I was impressed!  The company seems to have a good culture and hiring practice that leaves the guests feeling well taken care of.  The rooms have a historic and yet modern sense.  I am not looking for fancy TV’s or stereos in Key West.  I look for old hardwood floors and comfortable beds.  They have both! The location is incredible and the grounds are well managed and lush. We are so impressed with the company we are looking at booking a month long stay in one of there monthly rental properties.

There are few places in Key West which offer tranquility, privacy, and a peaceful night’s sleep away from swarms of vacationers. If you’re looking for a balance between tropical seclusion and proximity to the hot spots of Key West, The Chelsea House is a perfect match.

This historic inn seamlessly blends modern amenities with historic ambiance. While the rooms are historic, they maintain a level of comfort which surpasses most other accommodations in the area. The quaint nature of this Whitehead Street hotel provides for a refreshing stay that is removed from the Duval crawl, but close enough to the bars should you desire a pirate punch during happy hour.

The staff person upon our check in was excellent. She was knowledgable and very helpful. In fact all the staff were responsive and cordial. Our room was compact and very clean. The room could use some more storage. Loved the balcony. The breakfast muffins were a bit stale on day. The fruit was very good. A lovely setting.

My family and I (husband & two daughters 16 & 12) stayed in a two queen bed room #29 February 12-14. The room was clean (give the bathroom a 9) and provided enough space for the two nights. Liked having a private entrance to our room and having an outside sitting area. We enjoyed the daily breakfast offerings by the pool and the woman who provided that (forget her name) was pleasant and quick to keep things replenished. The front desk manager was helpful in suggesting dinner choices and the ease in getting around the keys. First visit to Key West; hopefully not our last.  Quaint, charming building with a resort like pool setting and outside areas to enjoy the sunshine & warmth of the beautiful weather!

Our party of 4 really enjoyed the old feeling of Key West that the Chelsea House Pool and Gardens provided. Our rooms and beds were well appointed and comfortable. Although the baths were small, it is understood that when a historic home is converted to an inn, there are some allowances that have to be made. The overall experience, around the pool, the breakfast, the lounging areas,the location, the gardens, all proved to be the mood that we wanted in Key West as opposed to a resort that cannot offer the same ambience. Will stay there again on our next trip!

We did what several travelers do on their travel bucket lists; we drove drown to Key West from Miami in a convertible.  We arrived around 5:00 pm.  The check-in process was quick and hassle free. Our room was clean and what we expected except for no working door to the balcony outside.  In reviewing the hotel’s website prior to booking, it appeared that all rooms had an immediate outdoor sitting area off the room.  Because of the decorative door to our balcony, that was not the case for our room.  That was disappointing.

Our stay in  Key West and specifically the Chelsea House was otherwise very nice.  The grounds at the hotel were very well kept and reminded us of the “old south”.  The gardens were beautiful and the pool and various outdoor  seating areas were very inviting.  The location was great as the majority of the sites to see are within walking distance.

The complimentary continental breakfast offered numerous choices.  The breakfast staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We would recommend the Chelsea House to those we know.  We enjoyed our vacation to the Florida Keys very much.  We saw numerous sites, enjoyed a wonderful array of restaurants, and visited three beaches at three state parks within an hours driving distance.  We look forward to visiting again.

We stayed at the Chelsea House for 7 days February 2015. The place had such character, and a great location just far enough from Duval. With a short walk to all of the action or a short walk back to the peace and quiet of the pool, it was well worth it.

The staff was very pleasant from check in to  check out and the housekeeping staff was fabulous. The room was clean, and the towels and linens always neat and clean. The bed was super comfy too.

All visitors must remember that you are visiting a place with history and it has been around for over a century. As long as you are not expecting something brand new and pristine, you will be satisfied with its beautiful, quirky charm and character.

We stayed 4 nights at Chelsea House, 2 nights in a superior Queen room and 2 nights in a King room – while both rooms were great – the King room was larger and had a bigger shower. All the staff were excellent, housekeeping staff were very friendly and attentive. Rooms and grounds were clean and well maintained. Location was a few blocks to Duval Street, just a very short walk. We would also recommend renting a scooter during your stay – there was a scooter rental place 2 blocks from Chelsea House.
