Walking into this hotel is amazing. The staff is very helpful and will assist you in finding places to eat or things to see. We checked in after a day of driving from Miami to Key West. Check in was efficient and quick. You do have to pay to park, but you park right underneath the building you are staying in, so you don't have far to go to your room. The security measures in this hotel are amazing. The elevators are keycard activated, the rooms are keycard activated (of course), the gates are keycard activated, and the beach is surrounded by a fence that separates it from the sidewalk (once again, keycard activated). At the hotel you can rent jet skis, kayaks, boats, electric cars, and maybe bicycles. If you do not want to rent any of these, you can take a Marriott bus into Old Town. This hotel is located in New Town, on the east side of the island, whereas Old Town (the location of all the attractions) is on the west side. But since the island is only 4 miles by 2 miles, it is easy and quick to get around. We upgraded to the Presidential Suite, which included a washer and dryer, 1.5 baths (two toilets, three sinks, a shower and a tub), a king bed, a sectional couch, a dining table, a full kitchen (full-size fridge, dishwasher, stove, double basin sink, counter with three stools), two flatscreens, a balcony with a spiral staircase to another balcony on the roof (we were on the third floor) and a sliding glass door in the bedroom that opened (surrounded by a railing). The room features are incredible, but so are all the services and facilities you have access to. A large pool (5 ft deep at the most), a jacuzzi, three open-air cabanas, one restaurant and one cafe, a swimming beach, a pier, and a wellness center. Returning to your room in the late afternoon, you find that it is spotless, that the bed is made, and that all the furniture has been reorganized. All the dirty towels have been changed. Returning in the evening, you find the covers turned down, mints on the pillows, the shades drawn, and even a light on. Every hour Marriott buses run to and from Old Town. Although there is construction in front of the hotel, you cannot hear it and there is no congestion; the road has been converted into a two-lane one-way into Old Town with a spacious bike path/walking path. The location is very agreeable because you are removed from Old Town, so it is very peaceful and quiet. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We stayed for three nights are enjoyed every minute. If you are considering this hotel but are deterred by the price, I would say that you should bite the bullet and pay a little extra for an excellent stay. In the end, you have have nothing but good memories of this five star hotel.
