... to fill the car with petrol at service stations that turned out to be closed, and we arrived with minutes to spare. A huge operation at the airport. Probably 100 cars in the process of being returned, and a similar number in the process of being borrowed. Took the public express bus from the airport to Miami Beach for $2.35!, and it dropped us almost at the door. Have a lovely room in the hotel part of the Clay this ...

And sometimes the real you wants time to work things through before talking.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Chelsea Miami Beach
A budget choice. We were not happy with the Chelsea; although it might be fine for people who want a fairly basic and somewhat small room in a hotel that really does resemble a college dorm. I make this comparison because most of the other guests appeared to be in their very early 20s. The hallways are way too dark, though--you couldn't see well enough to insert your room keycard in the lock. Considering that there wasn't always someone at the front desk late at night--and that the doors were left open all night--this is valid security concern. Also, the lobby is in desparate need of some new furniture and fresh paint, and the carpeting in the hallways smelled musty. On the plus side, the rooms themselves were clean, the bed very comfortable and the amenties are accurately represented on the hotel's web site. The courtyard area is nicely done up with polished aluminum drink tables and has a private feel to it. Unfortunately, the bathroom has no shelf or counter area to speak of, and the room contains no chairs or a table. The hotel does not supply any beach towels either. The windows are single pane, so all the noise from the courtyard and the street comes right in until early morning. (Don't get me wrong, the music is great while you're outside, but it becomes a problem when you can hear it in your room.) Even more annoying, the windows are covered in a wood or bamboo shade that screens out absolutely NO light. It was very difficult to get to sleep there--even after we had finished our club hopping. Another couple in our group had a malfunctioning air conditioning unit in their room (Something that we have seen repeated in other comments about this hotel--beware if you're in a third floor room...)
Just got back from the Chelsea. A lot of what everyone here is saying, is true. Couple bad things but mostly good. The dim lit hallways were very dim and difficult to see down. The brothel comment was warranted.
Where do I start???? I have just returned from my stay at the Hotel Chelsea, where I stayed for 10 days. Firstly, the corridors are very very dark. Reminiscent of a brothel. It almost made me think that they were trying to hide something, as the lighting was very dim. The complimentary CONTINENTAL beakfast, which i might add, consisted of an omlette, which you had to pay for, bread, cake, tea and coffee, was not at the hotel chelsea, but at another hotel two bocks away. When we asked why this was, we were fobbed off with the excuse that the guy that normally provides the breakfast was away. The complimentary drinks which were offered at the hotel, were also not at the Chelsea, nor was it at the hotel where we had our breakfast. It was at yet another hotel. Complimentary VIP into all of South beach's hottest clubs???
My permenant South Beach Spot!!!!
First of all FREE shuttle service. Excellent staff! They were so very helpful. Calling in reservations for us telling us which buses to take. The rooms were fabulous. I loved the bathroom the shower was amazing. The design all together was great. The prices of the minibar were erasonable for a hotel considering the same items at the Delano would have been 3 times as much. Including the room rate. I think we paid about $70/night. Free breakfast between 8-10am (not just a continental one mind you), and free drinks between 7-8pm (not just soda, i'm talking mojitos). This is my new favorite place.
We were expecting something quite different than what we found at the hotel Chelsea. We pulled up from the airport to what looked like a crowded nightclub, smoke machines and all. We rolled our luggage through people grinding and men making out together on the couches.
Hotel Chelsea was even better than expected. The rooms were beautiful,
with plush, clean white comforters, and all slate modern bathrooms! The
staff put us on all the guest lists at the hottest clubs on SoBe, and
Monica gives the best pedicure on Miami beach! We had a great time and
I would definitely stay there again!
Loved it at Hotel Chelsea
My friend Mary and I visited this hotel not too long ago. Not only were we in the heart of South Beach, but we were well received by the hotel staff who were kind enough to make our stay very enjoyable! Our rooms very clean and nicely decorated too. We are looking forward to going back down very soon, and we are definitely going to stay at Hotel Chelsea. We highly recommend it!
A unique experience
Not your typical hotel. Trendy decorations throughout. Rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable and cozy. There was a party with loud music in the front courtyard for most of the day making it difficult to rest. The party was over by 11:00. Happy hour was nice although very limited on what drinks were available. The staff was gracious and helpful.
All style and no substance
The Hotel Chelsea substituted style for service and comfort. Although it was very trendy and we enjoyed the front patio, the hotel had some problems. For example, our air conditioner rattled throughout our stay (noone ever fixed it) and the staff wasn't particularly helpful in getting it fixed.
Great art deco hotel
This hotel is the best place when looking for something unique and special. The first evening we visited the hotel they had a special cocktail party being held for an artist who was showing her work in the hotel lobby. The rooms were very clean and unique in their decoration...and the beds were spectacular. The hotels' complimentary cocktail hour was a wonderful time to meet other hotel guests and we ended up partying with some of the all weekend.
