“Great hotel. Great location. Don't pay extra gor ocean view room!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

This is a great hotel with excellant service. Perfect location on Mallary Square. I wish it were a Marriott so I could get my points. Don't fall for paying extra for an ocean front room. On day one two cruise ships blocked the view. On day three they pitched a big tent for a wedding. That blocked the view too and they played loud music until nine pm. Get a room on the side overlooking the marina.
Great hotel though.

Great location right off Mallory Square. Walk to everything in Key West. Looks like the place was recently redone. Tile bathrooms and spacious rooms. We had a direct ocean front view right above the walkway and next to the cruise docking. We sat on the balcony and watched the sunset.

Cruise ships were very quiet. We did not hear them enter or leave the dock. At night the people on the boardwalk were a little noisy and the smell from cigarette smoke made us leave the balcony.

The room had a shower only, no bath. There was a separate vanity area with a door seperating the toilet and shower from the vanity. The shower area had only one light and was a bit dark. Room air conditioner controlled by wall switch. Fan controlled by pull string.

The room price reflects the great location. Would stay here again.

The Westin is the perfect hotel to chose to be near everything in Key West!! It is right on the water, beautiful views, and you can walk to all of the shopping, eating, and drinking. Delicious starbucks coffee was available each morning, and the Sunday brunch with unlimited mimosas is a great deal! The pool area was nice, mostly shady in the afternoon though. The fitness center is being remodeled so it is not in use right now, so I cannot rate that. The only thing I could say that was not great was the air conditioning unit in our room (338) was quite loud at night. Otherwise, LOVED this hotel and would stay again in a heartbeat!!

Just came back from my annual Key West Thanksgiving weekend trip to the Westin. Always enjoy coming to Key West this time of year. Check in by Daniella was quick and friendly. They allowed an upgrade to an Ocean front room (I'm a Starwood Gold member), if we wanted to wait an extra couple of hours, which we did. We stayed in Room #159, which was clean and comfortable. Last year we were in room #103. 159 was good, however, a partition outside our balcony from the outside food service area prevented us from seeing the sundown from our balcony which was disappointing. No such problems from last years room. I had flowers delivered from Gourmet Nibbles, at the suggestion of the concierge, prior to our arrival. Even with the last minute room change, the flowers were waiting in our room upon check-in. Much better maid service this year, and the common areas seemed cleaner, and better smelling, than the previous year. Pool area was good, pleny of lounges, although they got rid of the nicely padded former lounges in favor of new "Frontgate" lounge chairs. While they look very nice, they are no where near as comfortable as the former padded lounges. Went over to Sunset Key twice, which we always enjoy. Went specifically on one day because we had advance notice that Three cruise ships would be in port, making the area around the Westin quite crowded. There were ships in port 5 out of 6 days we were there, but mostly just one ship, and except for one day, the ships were always gone by sundown. A great trip, and already counting down the days until next years trip.

The hotel is situated in an excellent location - close to Mallory Square and downtown Duval Street. The terasse offers gorgeous views of the sunset festivities. Our two room suite was a bit dated and we had to ask for a mini refrig. Staff had no problem providing this. Overall the staff could have been more friendly and service oriented. Exception Lauren, wait staff during breakfast and lunch was a joy. She offered suggestions for activities as well as joked with us and simply went out of her way to provide top notched service. She must be acknowledged by the hotel as being a superb employee. Furthermore, the conceirge for our building was very helpful in answering our questions with respect to the reciprocity with the Sunset Key beach. Great hotel amenity.

Very good location, Only 100 meters from Duval Street. The sunset can be seen from the Hotel terrasse. The room was large and nicely decorated. The staff could be more pleasant and service minded as this is a tourist destination.

The hotel is situated perfectly near Mallory Square sunset festival on the water and close to the restaurants and nightlife of Duval Street. The pool is among the nicest in Key West.

However, there were some problems. The staff was professional and addressed the problems adequately, but these things should not happen at a AAA-4 diamond hotel. After checking into a room with a gorgeous pool view, we soon learned that the bed was broken. The springs collapsed in places on the bed, and we had a very difficult time sleeping. The staff did a wonderful job arranging for our things to be moved to our new room on the third floor. However, we learned that the new room did not have a beautiful view and faced the air-conditioning units. The bed was better, but the shower was broken. By the end of the shower, the hot water was a very weak stream. We informed the front desk. They fixed it that day. The next day, however, we had the same problem. The room also could have been more thoroughly cleaned. We found food stains on the drapes and smears on the mirror.

Also, the gym is being renovated. They have arrangements with two other hotels. We tried to the Pier House Resort's gym, but it was rather small and seemed dirty. Some of the equipment was rusted.

Given our experience overall, I cannot recommend staying here, but this is not a bad hotel either. The rooms are nice, with large vanities in the bathroom and good-size TVs. Balconies are a bonus when you have something to look at. Room service was prompt.
