My husband and I stayed our first night in Key West at the Dewey House. To be honest, we waited too long to book the B&B where I had previously stayed. The Dewey House was the only opening on the island for our first night, and I was extremely excited as I'd heard wonders. It did not disappoint. I can honestly say that it's the best place either of us has stayed in the entire country. The Dewey House has a traditional elegance that somehow seamlessly blends into coastal chic. We stayed on the second floor, by the stairs, with an enclosed balcony facing the street. It was flawlessly quiet, and the bathroom was beautiful and spotlessly clean. I would have much rather spent half the time in Key West that we did so that we could've afforded an entire stay at this property. Seriously, it's that good. The concierge called us a cab to the Blue Angels Air Show. We ate the best breakfast of our trip (espresso, English muffins, fruit, cheese, and yogurt) out on the beautiful beach-front patio. The location is on the absolute end of Duval Street. At first, we saw that as a negative, but if we did the trip over again, I promise you we would've spent entire days reading on the beach, lounging on our balcony, and enjoying food and drink at the Southernmost Beach Cafe next door. . . with brief trips out to the marina and dinner. It's a splendid property that offers the luxury that's too often missing from a Key West vacation. Skip the hotel chains and other B&Bs. They can't compare. This was my husband's first trip to KW, and I had wanted to just book where I'd stayed before. I hugely regret that decision! I sincerely hope you choose to stay at the Dewey House for your entire trip!
