Nice hotel near Duval
Posted Mar 15, 2017
This hotel and its grounds does not take up a lot of space....it is sort of crammed into a smallish area right off Duval. Having said that, we thought they did an excellent job, both in the room, and on the grounds, of maximizing the space they had to work with. The room was small but nice, and the grounds were well decorated with a nice pool, nice spa, and sufficient area to sunbathe or sit and grab a snack.
They also threw in some nice touches...a nice array of breakfast items...happy hour snacks...a couple free drinks. They had sufficient parking in their street level parking lot, though charged $10/night for it. Their location is near perfect...right off Duval, but off the street just a tad, and on the quieter section of that street, so noise was not a problem.
Any hotel that charges in the $400s-$500s range as this one does should be judged by a very different standard. Is this hotel worth that amount? Not even close. Can they get away with charging this much because of where they are and the quality of their property? Yes. So if you are going to stay in Key West and in this area, you might as well suck it up and pay the very inflated price, because it is a nice hotel in a good area and it's probably as good a deal as you'll find.
