Recently married and the wife and I decided to go to Key West for our honey moon. We went with Marriott Beachside and were very glad we did. I don't know how else to say it, but everyone, from the airport shuttle driver to the housekeepers, front desk staff, restaruant folks, and so on were terrific. They all made sure everything was on the up and up, and went out of their way to provide top notch service. We stayed in the suites that had an water view. The balcony is perfect for enjoying the weather and the room was terrific, could have just moved in for good! They provide a free shuttle every hour to Duval street (where all the bars/eating/shoping are) and will pick you up from there at 20 past every hour (until 11:20pm). If you miss the last shuttle, it's only a $14-15 cab ride back. All the shuttle drivers were great, but no visit is complete without having Manny drive you around. He'll give you a mini-tour of the island, tell you where things are, and basically entertain you the whole way down to Duval (give that man a pay increase).
The plan was to do Key West for five days, drive up to Key Largo, drive back down to Duck Key, and then to Key West for our flight. We drove up to Key Largo after five days, and the whole way up kept telling each other, "lets go back". Long story long, we drove back down to Key West and checked in again to this hotel for an additional five days. Once there, both the wife and I stated, "It's good to be home".
Make sure you enjoy everything this place has to offer. Their happy hours (2 for 1 between 5-7) is incredible, try a Fosters (not the beer) and thank me later.
Honestly, without becoming too giddy, this hotel does team service right. You will not be able to not enjoy your time on the island by staying here.
