"Beware! Not what it claims to be"
Date: October 18, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, West Palm Beach,
I really don't understand how anyone could possibly have a good
experience here. It was the worst hotel we've ever stayed in and
we've traveled a bit. They give themselves three stars??? On what
planet?!?! I picked this hotel (Oct. 2005) because the website
made it look so great. Do not make the same mistake I did. The
staff are as incompetent and rude as they come. I reserved the
rooms online, but when I got there they wanted me to pay $100
deposit for the mini bar. That detail is not on the site. I didn't
want the mini bar and had them remove it and we had to wait in
the lobby for 45 min. They advertised free Happy Hour drinks for
guests, but it's only for Vodka (Crystal Palace, which is like
jet fuel)! When we finally got in our rooms we realized they gave
us a double, not the KING we reserved. Their website says it offers
complimentary bottle water (which we didn't get) and robes (which
we also didn't have). We were tired and frustrated so we just
took it. The room is tiny and there were no drawers, which didn't
bother me because we only stayed one night. The shower was made
to be artsy and funky NOT functional. The sink kept getting clogged
and the shower looks like it should have working sliding glass
doors, but there's only one, and it only covers half, so water
gets everywhere. We only got one towel, one washcloth and one
handtowel (remember, this is for a double bed room). There is
no operating restaurant and the continental breakfast is very
basic, with cold cereal and a toaster, but no toast, everything
being served in styrofoam cups/plates. Oh, and I have to say I've
never been in a hotel or motel room that DIDN'T HAVE A PHONE!!!
The hallways are extremely dark. Upon checkout they informed me
that I had to pay an additional daily resort fee of USD5. They
could have at least informed be when checking in. Do yourself
a favor, STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE - there are plenty of hotels in Miami
Beach which are much nicer and much better value than this.
Chelsea Hotel "Not so much"
Date: September 1, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Washington, DC
I would not return to this hotel. I think they were attempting
modern and cool, but it came across as grungy. There was water
under the cheap fake wood floors that seeped out when you walked
over the floor near the bathroom door. It was 80 degrees when
I was there and the a/c barely produced enough to keep me comfortable,
I would hate to be there when it is 100 degrees. I woke up to
notice two small caterpillar type bugs crawling on my pillow.
Oh and after paying 20% of the hotel cost in fees, when I checked
out they wanted another six dollars in "resort" fees.
I don't know what a resort fee is or why they felt they could
charge me that fee. They list a discount price on hotels.com and
then take it away with "resort" fees. If you're not
picky and you want to save a buck or two on sobe then go for it,
otherwise stay away, because they're not using the resort fee
they sneak in there to pay the exterminator.
