“Very disappointing for a Marriott.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We had a surprisingly warm, friendly welcome. However, when we walked into our room, we were unpleasantly surprised with the small size and location. Like another reviewer, we asked for another room, but were told this is the 'standard' room and no upgrades were possible. It did not feel like we were in Key West. The tile floor which covers entire room left the bottom of our feet dirty. On the plus side, the breakfast buffet was excellent with many selections. The shuttle is a great convenience and both the trolley and train pick up locations are across the street.

Not a JW Marriott quality wise, but pretty darn good for Key West, which does not have a plethora of nice hotels. Our rooms was in building 5 facing north to the water. great view. There really is no beach here per se. It's called Beachside, and there is sand, but it runs a long a sea wall. Key West really doesnt have much for beach hotels, so this is above average in that category. The pool is on the smaller side, but pleasant and good drink service from the pool side bar. Our room was a suite with kitchen, high end appliances. The property restaurant is called Tavern/Town, great stone fired pizza, nice morning buffet and piano bar entertainment nightly which was nice. Shuttles to Duvall St run every hour and takes about 15 minutes. The property is on opposite end of island, about 4 miles from downtown.Overall, this is a good property and a great property in Key West, perhaps the best. I think it compares favorably to the Casa Marina which is also on the high end for Key West. There are no spa services here so disregard my excellent rating below, I could not de-select that.

Room Tip: building 5 or 6, facing water, a suite if you can get it.

Great hotel- the pool was heavenly. An oasis, when in New York, where I live was freezing! Well appointed rooms, great amenities and friendly staff! Will go back in a heartbeat! the frequent shuttle to the Duval street was very convenient.

Room Tip: The 'walkway' view room was much quieter than i thought it would be, but am sure the pool...

The rooms in this hotel are very nice. I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a hotel in Key West. The suites are similar to a very nice apartment with high end finishes. The refrigerator in our room was a SubZero.

Well...just checked in to Marriott Beachside. I stayed here a few years ago and had a wonderful time, wonderful room, etc. This time we checked in for a room that's over $300 a night and we have a view of a stairway and wall! I called to complain but they say its their "standard" room. So now we are stuck in a room that looks like it should be at a nursing home for 4 nights. Don't get me wrong, the room is nice but it has 2 windows that view a wall. It was a bait and switch. The front desk and the management could have cared less and I frequent Marriotts quite often. It may be time to switch...

First of all this is a Marriott, so they had high level of service. Check-in was nice and the view was amazing, baby I was in Key West, PARADISE!!!

Nice clean and comfortable room, food was great, no complaints. Hubby worked out while I went and checked out the pool and spa.

Close to restaurants, shopping, great location, highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

Very clean and away from all the hustle bustle of duval street. I enjoyed the pool area and hot tub. The tavern restaurant had great food! And the pool side food was awesome as well with great poolside service. Its defiantly going on my list of places to return!
