The only reason I wouldn't give this 5 stars is because the rooms weren't crazy nice (though clean and very suitable). HOWEVER, I don't really care about the room because I spent all my time enjoying the resort... We did the jet ski tour (a total must do) which was beautiful, warm enough even in December for me to be... More

I struggled on whether or not to give this hotel an average of very good rating. I went with very good based on the room decor, location and friendly staff. However, the exterior and hallways seem a bit dated. Ice machine on our floor was out of order and over the hotels seems a bit dated on the outside. No... More

This is a nice hotel, in a very quiet and lovely section of Key West. The location (and the natural sand beach) almost can't be beat. We were able to walk everywhere easily and always felt very safe. However, it is not your typical Waldorf Astoria. It isn't nearly as well-appointed or well-kept as that name implies. We had a... More

We got a pretty good rate on Hotwire and this was the hotel we found ourselves at. Good location, walkable to everything in Key West. Really nice beach and guests can use all the amenities at the other Waldorf Astoria property as well. It's nothing fancy. It's basically like a nice Holiday Inn, with a really helpful, attentive staff.

By its name, one would surmise that The Reach, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, would be an exemplary place to stay in Key West, FL. Regrettably it was not. We stayed there for 4 nights in December 2014. While located on the southern end of Key West at the outreaches of Old Town, the hotel itself left much to be desired.... More

The hotel was clean and well-maintained but definitely dated and not on par with the Waldorf brand. The pool was perfect and the beach, while small, seemed to be adequate for the off season stay - it will be tight during peak season. The hotel staff was great - met all our needs and had great advice for sightseeing and... More

Great hotel for couples or families, very nice beach and swimming pool, the service is fantastic. We visited Ernest Hemingway's house, beautiful!! also do not miss Mel Fisher Museum, nightlife is quite busy. We will be back for sure.

The rooms were outdated and the furniture worn. I was surprised by that. Also, I wasn't impressed with the facility--the stairs and hallways were poorly kept and there was a lot of plastic drawers/bins storing towels on the halls that were kind of an eyesore. The beach is small but very nice. We did go on a jetski tour and... More

Had the worst room at the resort (218). It's located in the elevator bank, a concrete echo chamber, just above the lobby and less than a 100 feet from a rooftop reception area for weddings, DJs, etc. Unbelievable noise!

Not Boca, Hawaii or NYC Waldorf. Rooms outdated, clean but not luxury that I've experienced at other Waldorf properties. Starting with chec-in, a line, took 30 mins to get to room. Service was good; concierge's MJ and Ashlie were knowledgable and had great recommendations. Beach small, but private and quiet and service was impressive. Pool small, but water was good... More
