I think I have been spoiled by other Waldorf properties. They are usually elite, 5 star hotels. This is a 4 star hotel, and I think that ranking is about right. But that is a little sad for a Waldorf, in my humble opinion.
The private beach is excellent. There is food and drink and activities and water sports available. While I would have preferred easier access to the water, the rocks near the shore really make that tough. Still, no complaints about the beach.
The room we had was small. It had a nice beach view, and a small little deck, but overall it seemed a bit cramped.
Location. It wasn't far to downtown, maybe a mile or so, but it is a bit more remote than many other locations in Key West.
Service was good, both on the beach and at the restaurants. I can't speak for value for money, as I was using points, but looking at the prices they seem a bit high for this place.
Overall a good place, though I think I might explore a bit more closer to downtown before staying here again.
