Very disappointing, especially considering that I paid $340 for a standard room on a Thursday, plus tax and resort fees. You pay $20 to park your own car, valet is $30 a day. The room was far from impressive, dark, sterile looking with people walking by our windows so we had to keep the blinds closed. I've paid half for far nicer accommodations in major cities. Our room didn't even have bottled water. The air conditioning was noisy, waking us up every time it kicked in. When it wasn't the AC, we would wake up by the 1989 refrigerator noise.
To top things off, our marble floor was covered entirely in sand. Oh, did I mention no hotel slippers? Before we left for dinner, I stopped at the front desk to ask for our floor to be swept. Upon returning, the main area had been swept but it seemed they simply swept the sand closer to the bed. When I spoke to the manager, he apologized and offered to pay for parking and breakfast. That's something but still won't make me return to this property.
In order to get to Duval Street, you can take the free hotel shuttle that runs every hour. It's at least a 20 minute ride each way, so consider this before you book. There is absolutely nothing in the local area that you can walk to. The road outside the hotel is a dusty construction mess.
The resort has a tiny beach that is separated from the water by a concrete wall, so you can't even swim in the ocean unless you jump off the boat dock. The pool area is pretty nice but largely occupied by families with a bunch of kids. It's an okay property if you're looking to be far far away from old town Key West but the quality of the beach is nothing to what we're used to in Miami.
