We found La Mer in the Hotel Tonight app and took a chance since for the most part we are not B&B people (too many rules, can't stay out late, meals at prescribed times far too early for our family). From our check in the "Perfectly Air Conditioned" reception to the special beach property that it's located on, La Mer... More

Great location and excellent service. Breakfast on the deck next to the beach is a highlight. On the beach at the lower part of Duvall Street, so it was quiet. Easy to get to the upper part of Duvall by walking or cab.

We headed for Key West without reservations, our usual style, and, in the course of discussing our next stop, "Maria and Sergio," sitting at the next table at a Marathon Key breakfast diner, suggested Southernmost Hotel Collection. So uncharacteristically unpressed for time, we went to take a look and decided on La Mer, which also offers bed & breakfast. Beautiful.... More

My husband and I booked a last minute trip to Key West. We knew it would be a bit crazy since it is near spring break time but this resort was PERFECT! It is in walking distance to most anywhere and is on the quiet end of Duvall. You can make Key West what you want it. We wanted quiet... More

Honeymooner paradise. Private bar, beach, balconies and right off Duval street. The resort is part of a larger chain so you can enjoy multiple amenities in a B & B atmosphere. I would stay here over and over again. Absolutely exquisite.

Excellent location - the hotel is located within walking distance to downtown Key West but far enough away to never hear the night life. When we wanted to see the sights on Duval Street - it was a walk away and we could come back to the resort and get away from it all. We loved the beach view from... More

We stayed at La Mer and were so happy we got a last minute reservation there. The hotel is part of the Southernmost group so we could use all three pools, the beach, restaurants, etc. We had a room facing the street but there was no street noise at all. The room was spacious and attractive with a very comfortable... More
