We stayed from just after Christmas until just after New Years and had a great time. When we checked in Virgina gave us the low down on parking, bikes our room etc and did it quickly and efficiently. We were in our room which happened to be the attic suite quickly. With its own private hot tub, table and lounge chairs on the upper deck this is the place to stay if it is available.
The hot tub was replaced this year and it was a little smaller than last year and not new but it was clean and hot. They may want to replace it in the future with a new one.
A positive as usual is the security at night with locked gates and the location right off Duval Street near the Hard Rock.
It is not the Hyatt so if you want a chain hotel go there. This a an old Key West house turned into rental rooms. They do have new rooms off the pool but we prefer the old house.
The pool has limited sun but because of that the landscaping including trees are beautiful. The reason for our attic reservation is that with that room you have unlimited sun and privacy.
The community hot tub is a great place to meet other guests. It even has a tree that is growing up through the roof. Again clean and hot.
Suggestion, if you are going to drive from either Fort Lauderdale or Miami airports rent a car for the day and drop it off at Key West airport and rent bikes for the week. Parking and driving are both hassles in Key West.
Rent a boat, take a sunset wine cruise with Danger Charters and enjoy KW. We can't wait to go back.
