I booked this hotel based on reviews I read here, and I was not disappointed. It was clean, the staff was AMAZING! They had great suggestions, very helpful, and even let my friend help decorate their Christmas tree.
This place was in the perfect location. It was on Duvall Street, close enough to the bars to walk there in a matter of minutes, but far enough away so that noise was not an issue. It's half a mile form the Southernmost Cafe and the beach (I would highly recommend their happy hour $3/$4 drinks and Appetizers form 4-7pm), and right down the street form Mallory Square where you can catch a tour bus/trolley. I would def recommend the Olde Town Trolly, as you get a second day free, and it makes EXCELLENT transportation if you're trying to see all the beaches.
The best beach by far was the one located at the Fort Zachary Taylor. It has a gorgeous view, and bar right on the beach that also serves snacks. If you have time, check out the fort, a very interesting piece of history.
Second favorite beach was Higgs. Smaller, but less crowded. With a slight "locals only" feel, there's still plenty of room for a tourist. And an amazing surprise bonus, the Civil War fort there is now home to the Key West garden club. A truly delightful way to get out of the heat for a minute, and see a different side of Key West. It's a beautiful spot full of personality and original local artisans. Take a few dollars to leave in donation!
My only complaint, if any, was that I left a set of headphones in the room, went back 1 hour after checkout and they were gone, never to be found again. i can only imagine an overzealous cleaning crew tossed them. Oh well, i suppose I did leave them in the room. I'll get over it.
