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.
