I think of Crowne Plaza as somewhere to stay on business in a big city, and so the original plan was to stay in a boutique B&B in Key West, but these are $$$$. This is a landmark historic (nineteen twenties) building that dominates the town and has been sympathetically restored in upscale "island chic" style with all modern amenities. I booked three nights in early Jan 2013 in a standard room on Priority Club points, and they upgraded us to a suite. Can't beat that for value and contrary to Slapshot12.
Excellent location in the center of the action on Duval Street. Close to restaurants and the tourist attractions. It seems the rooster is a permanent fixture, but you can buy earplugs at CVS a few blocks away.
Fantastic sunset views from the roof top (but if you're after a mojito you'll have to settle for a class of generic white wine in a plastic cup).
Didn't eat in the restaurant--hotel restaurants often disappoint and there are many great places to eat within ten minutes walk. There is a Starbucks in the building at street level.
Excellent knowledgeable concierge who cites TripAdvisor in his recommendations for what to do. The other staff were equally helpful.
Plenty of space (but this was a suite) in the room and bathroom. The reviewer is partly right about the shower--you have to direct it towards the far wall to prevent flooding.
Plenty of positives, and no serious negatives. I can't comment on value for money--and I'm sure rates vary around the year anyway-- but otherwise I'd recommend La Concha.
