Although it does not call itself a hotel its worth remembering that it is not a hotel. There are no public rooms (less the lobby which is currently being renovated). The small pool incorporates a bar area which provides a poolside service and access to the Hot Tin Roof restaurant which is actually a nice place to sit, I can't comment on the quality of the food as the entire venue came across as mildly pretentious and at times in peril of disappearing up its own posterior so we ate in the town. The one room suite we had for 4 nights was a vacant timeshare with the kitchen area closed off (which was a shame), it was clean, spacious, well appointed quiet and tidy. The bathroom had a jet bath which was fun and the lounge area a big balcony facing Duval street for people watching and drying swimwear. The staff were great especially the bell hop and concierge the latter booked all are water-borne activities and seem very knowledgeable on all things Key West. Valet parking is $20 a day (there are no viable alternatives). The location of the accommodation blocks is at 0 Duval St which is surprisingly quiet after sunset considering you've got a perpetual spring break going on further up the street. Overall a good experience and not overly expensive, Key West on the other hand is an acquired taste and depending on your perspective is either a gaudy cruise ship stopover, a middle American (think Billy Ray Bob Cyrus the second) pressure relief valve, a dis guarded film set of how the Americans think the Keys should be, an historic monument or maybe all of those in varying degrees. I think a ubiquitous Key West t-shirt slogan says it all, "Key West where the weird go pro"...
