Key West Marriott Beachside is a beautiful hotel. One of the best run Marriott's I have stayed at.. (I'm a Marriott Groupie) We stayed for the week. I used my Marriott reward points and reserved a 3 bedroom pool view and I had our family upgraded to 3 bedroom oceanfront. Great room!!! 1 king, 1 king, 2 singles, then a pull out couch in living room.
Coffee on the balcony every morning, looking at the Key West water and listening to the birds is my kind of vacation. I have 5 children. From college down to elementary school. This was our family vacation before school started. A great place to be to have time together. Beach is small, but the beach chairs are thick pads and when sitting in them, you are on your own private beach, literally. The pool is also perfect in every way. The pool service was excellent and the poolside food was delicious. The restaurant on site is also 5 star and perfect for a romantic evening (we left kids in room).
We did rent a van since we landed in Fort Lauderdale (cheap tickets for 7 pp) which made touring Key West easier (But a good 4 - 5 hours drive). Duvall street is just a long street with lots of shops. We are not really into that sort of stuff, but a great place to walk after dinner with the kids and get an icecream cone from one of the shops.
We did a day at Fort Zachary Taylor Park right there in Key West. A beautiful place with picnic tables and a beautiful beach and great rocks to climb for the kids. There is quite a bit of chunky like coral on the beach in some areas. But overall a beautiful park. The fort was a great afternoon little walking tour (right next to beach). Kids also loved this.
We also spent a day at Smather's beach. This beach has soft sand and you could walk from one end to the other end in a short amount of time. So we walked back and forth several times and sunbathed. Nice relaxing day. Parking across the street was free.
This Marriott treated us like I expected to be treated. Anything with the Marriott name should be run like this hotel. Cleaning service every day. The service provided us an ample supply of coffee for the coffee maker, shampoo and toiletries. The maid service also set up my children's stuffed animals so nicely on the beds, which they were so excited to come back to see how they were set up. Nice job!
We brought a suitcase of our own food from home, but there is a large Publix Grocery store only minutes away with everything you could possibly need. I made all our meals in the room. I made several calls for things I needed, like a spatula, a cookie sheet, and an extra blanket, etc. and room service was there immediately. (7 pp need lots of things). The room service people were very nice about my many requests. I really appreciated that.
The workout room is small, but nobody every used it much. The machines are set up in front of the windows looking out over the bay. A beautifully set up work out room. Nice shower room too and all the equipment was in excellent working order.
Excellent hotel. We loved it and would go again. Overall and Excellent Family Vacation!
