I stayed at the Chelsea House Hotel from May 17-20 2016 on business (I know!!) I was upgraded to the Hibiscus Junior suite on the first floor of the building facing Elizabeth St. First off – parking was clearly marked and ample for the property size – never had a problem getting a space. The front desk staff was welcoming and courteous – providing a map of the property and pointing where my room, the ice machine, the pool area and where the continental breakfast was served each morning. I asked about dining options and they provided me with several options as well as vouchers for each – free glass of wine, key lime pie, etc. Found my suite to be a welcoming frigid temperature (it was humid on arrival), exceptionally clean, and incredibly spacious. The junior suite has both a couch / ottoman seating area and a small kitchen ( full size fridge, oven, cooktop and microwave). If you were staying a full week or more I could see taking more advantage of it – for me it was ample room to store juice, water and ice cream. There’s a CVS about a 4 min walk up the street – close enough to grab some basic supplies – even without a car.
Its location is a definite plus – in heart of Old Town to get into the action on Duval yet far enough away that you don’t hear it all night.
i had dinner two nights in the area – Duffy’s and Abbodanza – 5 minute walk – good food and great service – both recommended by the front desk staff. Also dined at 915 on Duval- just a block or so over and a few blocks down – also a front desk recommendation. I believe Erin checked me in – she was absolutely pleasant, cheerful and a font of information.
I never actually saw the housekeeping staff – but know that they were present by the immaculate presentation of my room each night- freshly fluffed pillows- neatly folded towels, and empty waste receptacles .
continental breakfast served by the pool was arranged neatly with an array of hot beverages, iced juice and water, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, and pastry (bread, muffin, bagel etc.) with a nice seating area by the pool. Sufficient to start the day without having to leave the property in search of more.
if the management and presentation is indicative of the other properties in this hotel group – I’ll have to try them all. Definitely a great experience all around.By: KimberlyKellner on May 24, 2016
