A decent hotel with a central location in Key West not far from Duval Street. The hotel is on Truman steet about two blocks north of Duval Street. The big plus is the fact that it is not on Duval Street where the street noise can be loud, the traffic can be busy and the crowds can be large and boistrous. However, you can get to Duval Steeet quickly. The hotel itself is very nice and the way the various buildings and structures are positioned isolates you from the circumjacent area and neighborhood activities. You almost have the notion of being inside of a fortress that serves as a serene enclave. When hanging out in the pool area you can almost forget where you are. Put simply, the TRUMAN Hotel is an oasis in the middle of Key West. The rooms are very nicely furnished, give a hint of exclusivity or luxury and are well-maintained. They recently built a new three-story wing which I think contains slightly larger rooms. Also, I believe that several of the photos posted on the hotel's websites pertaining to room types come from new wing. The only downside I can comment on is that some rooms are positioned along or above Truman Avenue which can prove problematic because of the noise emanating from the traffic outside. For light sleepers and people from other time zones, the noise can make sleeping difficult and the room environment less relaxing. Another big plus for this hotel is that it includes free parking (beneath the new wing). However, spaces are limited and be forewarned that they may not have parking stalls for all guests if too many bring cars. The best thing to do may be to not use your car once you've arrived and leave your car parked (until you depart). The staff is friendly, helpful and can arrange various excursions and other tourist-related activities - sometimes with a discount. By Key West standards, the hotel is fair value for money and the rates are okay. I would try and get a package deal if any are being proffered. I would categorize the hotel and experience as equivalent to 4-stars. However, for what you get I do not consider it cheap - particularly when compared to other places in the US and elswhere in the world. This hotel is definitely a nice place to stay when in Key West if you can get a good rate.
