We chose this hotel for it's location near the historic harbor (within walking distance) and because we like to stay in places that are a little different than the typical chain hotel. Albury Court is a complex of several different homes or commercial buildings that have been converted for lodging. Because of how the court developed it appeared to me that there is little uniformity between the rooms. When looking at the reviews or booking a room one should take this into consideration.
The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. Check-in was a breeze. They provided an area map, suggestions on how to get around, recommendations on where to dine and what to see.
Parking is an issue in Key West and we were fortunate to get a place right next to the entry to our building. Once parked we didn't move the car until it was time to leave Key West. What you couldn't walk to was easily reached by trolley, bus or bike.
Our room (B08) was located in the building across the street from the lobby. The room was very quiet and recently redecorated. The room was clean and everything worked. Two picky comments about the room. First, When they remodeled they had an"interlocking/floating" wood floor installed. It appears that the installer didn't leave enough room for expansion and now the floor has started to buckle. When walked on, the flood loudly snaps and cracks. Second, other than three pegs on the wall, there wasn't adequate space to hang clothes. Granted, in this room, anything other than the pegs would have killed the look the decorator was going for. Apparently we aren't the first people to complain about the pegs. On the morning of our second day I found hangers in the bottom of the chest of drawers. Using the hangers on the pegs would be an improvement, but still inadequate except for the shortest of stays. The room had a nice sized refrigerator and ceiling fan. The wall safe was appreciated.
The continental breakfast was adequate. No more, no less. So many hotels now offer waffles, pancakes, hard boiled eggs or sausage as part of a continental breakfast that finding only the basics (cereal, toast, sweet rolls, etc.) was a little surprising. Being told there was no artificial sweetener, only raw sugar, was definitely surprising. I'm guessing this was more a matter of the hostess not wanting to leave the breakfast area to get sweetener rather than not having any on the premises.
Overall, the staff was great, the location perfect for our needs, it was clean and quiet. We would stay here again.
