We had planned our trip to Key West for an overnight stay. When friends went before us and stayed at Chelsea House, we immediately booked a room there. We drove down from Pompano Beach on a Wednesday morning, arriving at Chelsea House around 1PM. Check in was not until 4, so we received a parking permit and walked down Duval Street, visiting several local attractions. We arrived back at the Chelsea House, checked in and found a very nice, clean room with a comfortable Queen bed. The bath had a tile shower, toilet and vessel sink, very cute. The room was more than adequate, as most of the time will be spent seeing the sights in Key West and enjoying the food and drink that is available. The highlight of our visit was going to “Better Than Sex”, a dessert restaurant. We thought that the restaurant was closed on a Wednesday, but saw a sign that they opened at 6. We were able to make a reservation for late evening, so dinner was light. We hope to visit Key West again, and would love to stay at the Chelsea House once again.

We included an overnight stay at Chelsea House Pool and Gardens during our 2 week stay in Fort Lauderdale. The gem at the end of the drive was a good find. We arrived about 3 hours early for check-in but were professionally and kindly welcomed. We were able to leave our car in the parking lot and start our experience in KW. The check-in went smoothly and Room 8 was in top notch condition; clean and all the necessary amenities needed. The breakfast was sufficient and delicious. We were very happy that everything was within walking distance, so location couldn’t be better. The highly recommended and anticipated key lime pie did not disappoint. All the staff were helpful and friendly, particularly the house keeping supervisor. We had dinner at Conch Republic Seafood restaurant followed by going to Mallory square to watch the sunset. You live in a very beautiful part of the USA. Two days was not quite long enough. I would definitely recommend your hotel to our friends and we would return as well.

The property overall is charming and well-maintained. The pool and breakfast area are pleasant. It would have been helpful if the awning-covered area had been explicitly mentioned at check-in, as we didn’t realize it was accessible until our second day! Other guests mentioned they had made the same oversight (or maybe they were just being polite).

The room itself was quaint and charming. The squeaky wooden floors didn’t bother us, but I don’t know about the guests below us. I was surprised that there was no iron and ironing board in a hotel of this quality. It is a handy item after a long trip. The staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful whenever asked. A suggestion, based on a stay at a competing hotel, would be to offer a late-afternoon wine and cheese plate by the pool. Overall, a very pleasant stay. The main attractions for us were the peacefulness and quaintness of the property.

The Chelsea House is our “go to” when going to Key West. We absolutely love the rooms, the pool, the breakfast in the mornings. The staff is friendly, courteous and go out of your way to help you. The Chelsea House is a quiet haven amongst all the craziness on Duval. Close enough to walk to the action but it seems miles away as you relax in a chair by the pool. Whether it is a week long trip or a quick long weekend, Chelsea House is our favorite spot!

Our first Key West visit occurred on a long weekend in May  and we were thrilled to have selected Chelsea House Pool and Gardens. The staff was welcoming and pleasant and you felt like you had been reacquainted with an old friend. Our room was beautiful and comfortable and quiet. The grounds in general were spotlessly clean. The pool, just outside our door, and the surrounding gardens, was like venturing into a private oasis. Our stress levels and blood pressure plummeted. We were pleased to find that we were a very convenient, pleasant walk away from all the Key West attractions, Duval Street, Mallory Square, the Marinas, and the beaches. But, I would be remiss if I failed to mention the wonderful continental breakfast each morning. We are coffee snobs, and yours was outstanding.  I would enthusiastically recommend Chelsea House Hotel to a friend.

This is a very enjoyable property having both very nice accommodations and grounds. Close to most attractions, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist areas to provide quiet and peaceful surroundings. The entire stay went very smoothly. Looking forward to staying again in the future.

Our stay at the Chelsea House was most enjoyable. The staff was courteous and friendly. Their concern for our comfort began before we even arrived. We had a delayed flight that pushed back our schedule but Desiree was kind enough to keep check on our progress as we traveled and be accommodating when we finally reached our destination. The grounds were very relaxing and pleasant and the room was clean and comfortable. This was an ideal location to spend our getaway. Hats off to the staff, we look forward to returning.

We had a wonderful time in Key West and our stay at Chelsea House was superb. The room was light and airy but most important very quiet in the evenings. We did hear any noise from street level. Breakfast by the pool was a very nice touch. Definitely the place to stay in Key West

The last 50 miles of any trip is the longest and it is when your body and your become anxious. Now make this journey on a motorcycle and it’s now intensified by 10. We viewed the property from a 3rd party source and were delightfully surprised. It was very clean and blocks away from the south end of Duval.  The original room was on the 3rd level without elevator and very narrow stairwell. It wasn’t to our liking, the staff immediately showed me other available rooms, we picked one near the pool. He made the change upgrade complimentary without hesitation. After unpacking, their hospitality and customer service made that last 50 mile anxiety disappear like the sunset at Mallory Square.

Great property, highly recommend.
