Fine Dining and Vivacious Nightlife amid Chic 1940s-Style Decor
Neon-purple lights cast a glow on a slender, 20-story tower topped by a violet-colored sign reading "the Chelsea" in cursive lettering. This is the centerpiece Luxe Tower of The Chelsea, its dimly lit exterior looking like it was plucked from a film-noir classic and placed right along the Atlantic City skyline. Inside, retro-chic decor—such as crystal chandeliers in the ballroom and abstract lamps—complements the glamorous past of the bustling entertainment center.
Each chic room and penthouse embodies the hotel's signature retro style. The Luxe king room reveals panoramic views of Atlantic City, and the penthouse suite takes in the city from a private sunroom outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows. Cushy beds are draped in custom linens, and a stylish desk provides plenty of space for writing letters to rooms below. This Getaway also includes two passes to the downstairs Sea Spa's Solarium, where you can detox in the sauna, steam room, or jacuzzi.
The Chelsea’s two restaurants showcase distinct styles. Named after the hotel’s first owners, Teplitzky’s features classic American diner fare and cocktails to guests seated upon vintage barstools. The chefs at Chelsea Prime, the hotel’s upscale steak house, serve hearty cuts of meat and fresh seafood alongside perfectly mixed martinis. Black-and-white photographs of 1940s Atlantic City surround a glossy white grand piano, all set against an ocean-view backdrop. As the sun sets, head to The Chelsea’s Fifth Floor for cocktails and dancing at three bars.
Atlantic City: Boardwalk Entertainment next to Sprawling Beachfront
The Chelsea is located along the ocean, just a short walk from Atlantic City’s landmark boardwalk. Surrounding blocks flicker with the lights of the city's famed casinos, including the lavish Tropicana, where you can use a $25 gaming credit included in some options to build biceps by pulling the lever of every slot machine.
Atlantic City’s sprawling beach is a top daytime destination, and The Chelsea can equip guests with beach supplies, such as lounge chairs and umbrellas, or set beach-goers up in one of the rentable private cabanas.
