A group of friends went to Key West for a 40th birthday party weekend. Most of us stayed at the La Mer Hotel and Dewey House. What a find! The rooms are beautifully appointed, and they have incredible views overlooking the beach and ocean. They are located at the quiet end of Duval Street, but everything you want to do is within walking distance. Three pools are available via the Southernmost Hotel and Southernmost on the Beach. A concierge is available to book anything you want.
There are several excellent restaurants within a couple of blocks (notably Louie's Backyard). Breakfast is wonderful with made-to-order waffles, and there is an afternoon tea every day. Sitting on the beautiful terrace enjoying yourself -- eating or just reading a book -- you feel like you're on a tropical island. It's like you've entered another world. I didn't want to leave.
On top of all of the amenities, the best part was the staff. Everyone was friendly and happy to help us with anything we needed. We had great help from Lisa Malcolm who helped us book our group and gave us great ideas for things our group could do together. She even helped us get a room for a friend at the last minute. She was always pleasant, incredibly efficient, and had a great attitude. She was a real joy to work with. And John, the innkeeper, absolutely made our stay. He clearly loves his job and loves hosting people. He was fun and funny and made us feel right at home. We feel like we made new friends with both of these wonderful people.
I would recommend the Dewey and La Mer for anyone going to Key West (though kids under 18 are not allowed). It was a wonderful place to stay, and we hope it won't be long before we go back.
