My wife & I came to Key West to celebrate her birthday & our 37th anniversary. From the very beginning we were made to feel special. We had booked a garden view room but were very surprised to learn upon arrival that we had been upgraded to a direct ocean view room. (was it due to the room not being taken by someone else or to our "special occasions"? Who cares!) We were introduced to our hostess "Sam" who gave us a short history of the property & explained about the morning breakfast & afternoon tea amenities. She also provided great ideas on local eating establishments. Thanks Sam!The best part of this location was the beach view & being at the quieter end of Duval St. Oddly enough, the beach location provided the only negative as there was a distinct odor at the waters edge which probably comes from the rotting seaweed that collects at the shore. Not enough of a negative to prevent us from coming back again.
