Atlantic City, NJ: The Chelsea Hotel
The Chelsea, a retro 1950’s-era hotel located on the Atlantic City boardwalk is the first non-gaming hotel to open in the area since the 1960’s. The hotel is styled to capture the glamour and allure of Atlantic City during its heyday as a buzzing seaside resort town. The Chelsea offers several casual meeting spaces throughout the hotel, including the reading room-like lobby. The fifth floor is the entertainment center within the hotel. It is where guests can find Chelsea Prime Supper Club, a 1940’s style steakhouse complete with raised banquets that allow all diners to enjoy the sweeping views of the Boardwalk and ocean through the floor to ceiling windows. The Cabana Club is a roof-top pool and bar area with plush lounge chairs and secluded cabanas that features services during the day ranging from massages to palm readings and DJ performances nightly. C5, the inside section of the Cabana Club, is an art nouveau style lounge complete with fireplace, a purple felt billiards table and numerous classic board games. The fifth floor is rounded out by The Living Room, a champagne and cocktail lounge that features it own outdoor terrace overlooking the water.
The rooms in the Luxe Tower, the property’s 20-story tower, are large with minimal accent decor to keep the feeling both luxurious and airy. With all of the entertainment within the property and the direct waterfront location, the Chelsea is a great alternative to staying at a casino property. Plus, the Tropicana is a short five minute walk down the boardwalk if you feel the urge to try your luck.
