The major drawback to this hotel is that it's not downtown and it's on one of the major roads leading into Key West. Other than that it's a reasonable option for your stay in Key West.
Our room was comfortable and clean but definitely on the small side and had no view at all. If you want an ocean or pool view make sure you ask for it. And, although there is a beach, it's small and not well-used at least while we were there.
On the plus side, the pool area is nice. There's a bar and the staff will bring drinks and meals to you. The food's good and is reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly - Robert in the bar in particular was great.
The hotel compensates for its location by operating a free shuttle that leaves every hour on the hour. The pick-up is on Duval Street and the last pick-up is at 11:20pm. A cab ride from downtown costs $20.
Parking is $17.50/day and you self-park in a covered garage close to your room.
The hotel offers free Internet in rooms (unusual for a Marriott) and in common areas. The gym is just about adequate but suffers like many hotel gyms from not enough free weights that people actually use (i.e. 10lbs to 20lbs) and only one bench.
