This hotel was totally renovated in October, 2012. It is absolutely gorgeous. My daughter and I were here the week of January 7, 2013. The location is perfect...just one block from the beginning of the quiet section of Duval. There is a CVS next door, too, if you forget something. The room had a microwave, refrigerator and Keurig type coffee maker.. The grounds boast a soothing koi pond and waterfall, pool and hot tub. There is a continental breakfast as well as happy hour and simple snack foods from 5-7. By the way, we did not rent a car and this lodging was perfect. There is really not much of a need for a car in KW. Parking is $8. Per night otherwise.
The hotel is only a 3 block walk to the Hemingway House and a 10 minute walk to the Butterfly Conservatory and Southernmost Point. It is a bit more of a walk, say 20 minutes, to get to the hubbub of Mallory Square. We were there when it was 80 and very humid, so we decided to take the walk slowly and savor the sights and sounds of Duval Street while heading up to Mallory
The air conditioning is adjustable and powerful and somewhat noisy,as is typical in a hotel room. The bathroom was generously appointed with towels, but not so much the soap and shampoo.
We were greeted by Cheryl at the front desk the afternoon we signed in. She cheerfully helped us look at a map of Key West and pointed out special places. She also served us at happy hour. Our morning breakfast was put out by Shea. She was able to order a taxi, that appeared in 5 minutes, the morning of our departure.
Some people are very fond of the typical Key West Bed and Breakfast scene. I am more of a convenience person and enjoy nicely kept, clean, and, if possible, relatively modern facilities.
The ultimate questions are these...do I regret my choice?....absolutely not! Would I stay again? You bet I would. This is a five star lodging in Key West!!!!
