My wife and I traveled to Key West for our first overnight trip without our three kids, so naturally we were looking for a low-key place where we could relax and enjoy ourselves -- and the Traveler's Palm completely fit the bill. Off the beaten path of Duval Street (but close enough to ride our bikes when we were on the prowl for some craziness), the first thing we noticed was the peace and quiet. Relax in one of the lounge chairs by the pool with a cold drink, a good book, and a loved one, and be sure to take a moment to close your eyes and enjoy the sensations of a cool breeze rustling the nearby palm trees, the Florida sunshine warming your face, and the splish-splash from the pool's waterfall. You can then move over to your impeccably maintained room, which boasts simple yet elegant furnishings and all the comforts of home: flat-screen TV, king-size bed, kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, blender, and toaster, a porch with chairs to enjoy a late-night drink and handmade cigar, and perhaps the most comfortable hotel pillows I've ever had the pleasure of using. We also rented bikes on property making it easy for us to get around town and return our bikes in a hassle-free manner. The only thing I would change about the Traveler's Palm, however, is the soaps, shampoos, and conditioners they supply in the rooms. The stuff smelled downright NASTY, so I recommend bringing your own or stocking up on your preferred brand at the local CVS. While the site is certainly affordable, I did expect better toiletries than these. Finally, the units are modular, so overhearing your neighbor in the adjacent room can be a slight issue, but nothing to prevent me from staying there again.
Oh, one last thing: One of the best restaurants in town, El Siboney, is maybe 20 yards away from the front door. Be sure to stop in for some great Cuban food!
