As a regular Big Rubys guest this was our first time at Equator. We really couldn't have been happier.
I do think that expectations can get the best of some folks - it is a very nice place but if you are expecting ultra luxury there is probably no place in Key West that will meet that standard.
The rooms were clean and promptly serviced everyday. My understanding is that they are renovating the last two rooms from the property that was taken over next door.
Breakfast is basic continental plus - bagels & English muffins w/ a toaster, muffins, pastries, cold cereal, boiled eggs, juice, coffee and milk. We never went hungry.
Happy hour was more than I expected - beer, wine, pina coladas, rum runners and snacks. The staff was very helpful in offering refills.
About half of the guest went nude if that is something you like or offends. During the day, sexual escapades were at a minimum. Late nights saw an increase but that is to be expected.
Rooms were comfortable, with some complaining about tired mattresses.
It was a new neighborhood to explore and quite close to the waterfront. The 4 blocks to Duval was a none issue for us.
The staff was friendly, helpful and cute!
We have already booked our visit for next year.
