The airport is approximately 3 miles from Duval Street give or take. Too far to walk with luggage, but once you get to your hotel, very easy to get around the island by bike/scooter.

Taxi for a single is on the meter for a couple it's $8 per person. If you are staying at the Marriott Beachside it's located in New Town, the good news is they have a shuttle and will pick you up at the airport.

The Marriott Beachside is a beautiful property, but it is located away from the action of Old Town Key West. On a first visit it may be difficult to get your bearings, and you may waste a lot of valuable vacation time going back and forth.

Yes, def stay in Old Town so you can get out and explore more without spending time and $$ on cabs to get back and forth. Let us know what amenities you need and a price point and we can offer some good suggestions.

Unless you plan on going off island you won't need a car. $8/person cab fare from airport to old town. (Unless the fares went up since the last time we were there)

I would recommend the Pier House as a starting point (and an ending point).
