So maybe the Hamptons aren't your scene. Believe us, we understand. Perhaps Atlantic City is more your scene? If so, may we direct you to the newly launched website of the Chelsea Atlantic City - the first boutique hotel without gaming to open in AC. Featuring two Steven Starr restaurants, party pool and kitschy design, the real summer draw will be the Fifth Floor, described as
Like a delightfully unpredictable house party, guests can roam from room to room endlessly exploring a flowing space punctuated with nooks, crannies, and hotspots such as the Terrace Lounge, the “must go” location for the over-21 crowd on the lookout for a sophisticated, hip experience outside of the casinos, the Living Room, the Bar, and the Game Room.Very interesting concept - but is it enough to bring guests to a hotel that lacks a gaming floor? We say yes - as AC suffers from a lack of quality hotel space to draw weekend guests. The Chelsea positions itself as a serious contender for the young and affluent who are more than willing to hop in a cab and pop over to the Borgata for gambling, MurMur, and Mixx.
Apparently opens for Memorial Day. Book now!
