We have actually stayed at this hotel a number of times and it is the BEST in Key West.....Not only is it IDEALLY located next to Duval street, there is a great restuarant (Bistro 254), a nice pool and hot tub with a great bar. Also, you are next to Mallory Square where you can take in the MOST AWESOME sunset you will probably ever see...I will post pics as well. There are many shops around the hotel as well as access to all watersports....the concierge is the best, be sure to drop by the desk and ask the ladies where to dine as they have many coupons for things like yes...drum roll please....a complimentary bottle of wine at the Grand restuarant on Duval.
The only thing I will say that could be improved is the fitness centre...its a bit sparse with regards to weights,....all of their treadmills and elliptical (5 of them I think) are in good working order, but there is one workout bench and 1 set of free weights in the weightroom section.
Other than that, I think this is the best place to be in Key West...OH, and one other thing....after a nite of HEAVY partying, (if thats your thing), there is no worry abt having to drive home, or take a cab, or catch a hotel shuttle....you can just walk to your room.....AWESOME!!!!
