We were touring Florida and picking hotels as we went. It was our second visit to Key West having first visited 10 years ago. Saw this place on the net and booked ahead by phone. Glad we did as it was by far the best place we stayed in.
The suites are clustered round two small landscaped pools. You get unlimited free bottled water and fruit smoothies there. Additionally in a late afternoon happy hour you get free wine and snacks. That obviously is attractive but not a reason to stay in itself.
The whole place is very stylish and modern and the rooms in particular were very well equipped. The 1 bed room we had was on two levels with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The entrance itself was on what we Brits call the first floor although it would be floor two to US residents. There was a steep flight of stairs to climb to the front door. That means we would not recommend it to people of limited mobility. Don't know if all the suites are like that.
The free parking is a boon and the location good - next to "Southernmost on the Beach". It’s close to Duval Street but if it's action you want it's a fair trek as all the lively stuff is at the far end.
We probably will not be returning to Key West - been there and done it (twice). We would recommend the Santa Maria suites to others though.
