We were here with a group and this hotel had been chosen by a member of our party. We were extremely pleased with the accommodations. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. We found the front office manager, Fotis, to be very helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our rides into town with Mr. Ed, a shuttle driver with class, and a fount of information (he also has a supply of good coupons as does the concierge).
Our first morning there we woke early and walked to Publix (about 4 miles away-there are closer stores and shorter routes if you're not hikers or you can rent a scooter or bike with a basket-we brought backpacks). Bought about $40 worth of fruits, bread, peanut butter, cheese and a lemon pepper chicken which we brought back to the hotel for lunch. We enjoyed the walk along Roosevelt Dr. sidewalk (cross the street in front of the hotel near Smathers Beach). The room came equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave (good for popcorn), coffeemaker and sink. The food was great to have throughout the week for light lunches/picnics and snacks. The hotel does give you a complimentary water every day as well as Starbucks coffee and tea. We had a lunch and a dinner at the hotel which we enjoyed.
We were so busy with activities in Key West that we only got a chance to use the pool and hot tub once. Was even able to do some short laps diagonally across the pool.
There are a lot of great places to visit in Key West. We enjoyed our visit to Dry Tortugas National Park (took the boat-it leaves early in the morning and this was the one time we could not get a shuttle-they told us the only shuttles running that early were going to the airport. Do be sure to book your shuttles at the front desk, a day in advance if possible.) This is a full day if you take the boat. The trip includes a brief visit to the fort, breakfast, lunch and time for snorkeling. We snorkeled around the fort and saw a school of fish and 6 barracuda on the side of the fort in shadow. We also took a Sunset Watersports catamaran to a reef near Sand Key Lighthouse for snorkeling. Saw a lot of marine life including a nurse shark. Bonus on the way back was a porpoise show which the boat's captain spotted and stopped for. Went kayaking, checked out the view from La Concha Hotel observatory downtown (free for non-guests after 3PM and you can take an elevator to the top-for those of you who get vertigo climbing the stairs at the lighthouse!), enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and a visit to the Museum of Art and History at the Custom House among other things. We really hope to return as there is sooo much more to do and see.
