My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in November, room 412. This was our third time staying at The Reach. Once again, we were very happy with our stay! The customer service was great, the grounds and room were very clean, and the location is perfect.

The is our second stay at The Reach, the first was in 2010. Since then, the hotel has declined somewhat and is showing some wear and tear. It is well-known that the private beach at the Reach is the best beach on the island, but for that fact, I would consider other hotels. The Room: We booked the Romance Package... More

This Place has a very nice beach and friendly staff. This is the 2nd time we stayed here, and both times were excellent. It is near Louie's backyard which was also excellent. The Jet Skiing was awesome, too.

Pay the extra to stay at The Casa Marina (Key West, FL)! The Reach Hotel (Key West, FL) is a Motel 6 concept with decent rooms charging premium hotel rates. It has external rooms (not an indoor hotel). We got a letter around 9pm on 12/12/14 notifying us of a fire alarm test the next morning. Why we were not... More

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
