Just one block of Duval and two of either the maritime museum or Heminghway's House (as well as the best donuts EVER just across the street). Close to Duval's entertainment and dining, but far enough from it's loud sounds. Very nice apartments among well kept grounds.

Great place to stay while visiting Key West. It was quiet & clean. Small, but had everything you needed. Beautiful bathroom updates. Could have used an extra blanket, but other than that there were plenty of linens. Close to everything!

The Banyan never disappoints--rooms are clean and well-appointed, the gardens and pools are beautiful and well-maintained, and the staff is courteous and responsive. It is close to all the main Key West attractions but noise is rarely a problem. Highly recommend.

For 10 years we have owned a timeshare at the Banyan. I have enjoyed visiting there every time. Sadly, this year was NOT the enjoyable experience I am accustomed to. When I arrived, after a 7 hour drive, I was informed that our last night had been rented out and we did not have a place to stay. The woman... More

Banyan resort is a beautiful place to stay and the grounds are lush and tropical. It's close to Duval street which makes the front very noisy at all times of the day or night. There is very little parking for very small cars and no loading and unloading area. Overflow parking is 2 sweaty blocks away, down an alley under... More

I have to agree with other reviews the Banyan hotel with its garden setting and trees is a very beautiful hotel and the location is great. My wife loved that the Banyan hotel is on one of the local Key West ghost tours. They stop by the back of the hotel to see one of the trees, very cool. The... More

The Banyan Resort in the middle of downtown Key West is a beautiful place to relax and unwind from the busy days. The resort has vast gardens, two pools, a hot tub, tike bar and a warm and friendly staff. There are 38 apartments, all different, in 6 rebuilt conch house. The studio that I stay in has just be...

My husband and I along with my Father In Law stayed here for a whole week as a part of a family member's 10th wedding anniversary/reunion. The anniversary couple pre-booked a small catered party including steel drum music but was not allowed to have the event at a local rental vacation home. The Banyan came to the rescue and allowed...
