4th visit to Key West but 1st to Ocean Key. Incredible location - right on top of all the activity on Duval Street and Mallory Square. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are very nice - all seem to have large Jacuzzi tubs. Our view was Mallory Square but it is probably worth splurging for an oceanfront room - the views from there would be amazing! Loved the pool. Great meal (and view) form their restaurant The Hot Tin Roof. Overall a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Waterfront rooms are incredible.

Truly the best place to stay in Key West, location, views, rooms, and most of all the Friendly Hospitality, from the Valet parking to the Front Desk to the Concierge, to the housekeeping to the restaurants and the best entertainment at the pier , it may be a bit pricey but worth it, the best location for the sunset

We stayed here for 3 days back in March. The location would be hard to beat for the "Key West Experience" and we didn't even have one of the expensive rooms facing the Gulf.
We settled for a room with the balcony facing Mallory Square, lots of street entertainers there for the sunset every night. The room itself was good sized and comfortable, rooms are clean, the grounds are well kept and there is a pier right there.
The prices are far from cheap but you really are paying for the setting and views. The gulf on what side, and Duval St on the other.
The staff are all friendly and accomadating. It is a place I will stay again next time I am in Key West.

Delightful views from our corner room overlooking both Mallory Square and the beach. The rooms are enormous and the most comfortable bed we have ever had on holiday. The tropical decor was delightful and the cars parked on site were cleverly hidden by foliage (although a wee bit concerned about the possibilty of a falling coconut!) The staff were a young lively bunch always eager to chat and so not up themselves as can sometimes occur at expensive hotels
The food was not as good as the hotel seemed to think and cheese sauce was on all the breakfast eggs but they called it hollandaise (it wasnt, there is no cheese in an hollandaise!!) A thoroughly nice place and we would readily return to it

Room Tip: Ask to be high and on the corner overlooking both the sea and Mallory Square

Very happy about staying here. we stayed here 2 nights as we had originally booed one night on BA points and then booked another hotel, but we had to come back again. First night we got room 402 and the other night when we returned we got 502. Both rooms are located above Duval street with a huge balcony, but no problem with noise as the hotel is located at the end of the street and quite far away from the bars.

Rooms where huge with one bedroom and one large sitting room with sofa bed for the kids. Very good quality bed also. Large bathroom with shower and a Jacuzzi that we never used as the pool area was great with superb views of the water and the sunset. Heated pool so several degrees warmer then other pools on this trip that is for sure.

Breakfast was Ala carte, but good size portion so actually better value than most of the city breakfast restaurants. We never tried dinner, but lunch burger was good and large enough for the kids to share.

The staff was spotless, both charming and effective. Down to offering fresh towels in the evening so we had dry towels for next morning.

This really is one of my favorite Key West Hotels. The rooms are large and the caribbean decor creates a cozy environment.
As usual, every single staff member had the perfect combination of professionalism and casual friendliness. The food is over-the-top delicious at every venue.
We are locals, but wanted to treat ourselves by staying downtown for New Year's Eve. The fresh smell of pine from the beautifully decorated tree was intoxicating as soon as you entered the lobby. What a joy!!! Pricey during season, but worth it.
