The location was fabulous! We parked the car and walked everywhere. The room was updated and clean. Unfortunately we were placed on the 3rd floor (and told it was based on the price we paid 😳 We booked last minute after our plans changed). The 3rd floor was up a very steep

Hello sir, We have a beautiful sundeck at the Chelsea House Hotel, but it is not clothing optional. Minimum bathing suit bottoms are requested please. We are a few blocks away from a cool bar that has a clothing optional upper deck with fantastic views of Duval Street you might enjoy: The Garden of Eden.

"We had room 21 and it was perfect."
"Ask for a balcony and room on higher floors"
"stay in the main hotel?"
"Please note that the hotel does not have porterage so you will need to carry you bags to your room and some of the stairs are thin."
"I’d suggest a room away from the pool area for quietness"
US$199 - US$491 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
