Truman Hotel vs Silver Palms Hotel

Does anyone have an opinion about either of these hotels. We are four, middle aged, married men traveling for diving. Any opinions, and any dive shop information is greatly appreciated.

They are located very close together. The Silver Palms was redone completely in the last few years. That's all I know I am afraid!

I've only been in the Truman Hotel and it's beautiful. Silver Palms is completely new, torn down and rebuilt and Truman was redone around the same time maybe a bit before. Both nearby each other although Truman is a bit closer to Duval.

For diving, look at Lost Reef Adventures at the Key West Bight...

FAQ:

Where can I Park? There is a city parking lot located right next to Lost Reef Adventures as well as a parking garage one block away.

The former is free, the latter is paying.

Recently stayed at Silver Palms and enjoyed out stay. We had three rooms - only one complaint - the sheets in our room, both beds, were horrible - pilled really bad. However, friends in the other rooms didn't have issues with that. Would certainly stay again.
