La Mer Hotel offers a comfortable stay in a renovated Victorian mansion right on the beach. Although we didn't have an ocean view, our room, Number 401, was spacious and well-decorated with a very large bathroom, as well as seating on a shared veranda. Although it was on the street side and also along the parking area for the Southernmost Inn on the Beach, we did not have a problem with noise. A small refrigerator and coffee maker housed in a large wardrobe were welcomed amenities, as were the beach towels. The air conditioner was a bit noisy and could probably use an overhaul. A continental breakfast of fruit, cereals, waffles, yogurts, cheeses, juices, coffee and teas is offered right next door at the Dewey House. It could use a bit of an upgrade in its offerings but it made a good start to the day especially as the veranda looks straight out to the beach. Guests at La Mer and Dewey House also have access to all of the amenities - gym facility, spa, swimming pools, concierge service, and so on - at both the Southernmost on the Beach and the Southernmost Hotel, adjacent sister properties. So, if you like the feel of a small, boutique hotel (bed and breakfast) but enjoy having access to a larger hotel's amenities, La Mer is a good option. The staff is exceptionally helpful, providing excellent service with courtesy and a smile. The location is at the quiet end of town but within walking and biking distance of restaurants and attractions. We would definitely enjoy the charms of La Mer again on another trip to Key West.
