We planned a trip to St. Croix with a stop in Key West, so we had to stay at the Marriott. We booked through Marriott as we had really liked the hotel in the past. We were quoted a fairly high rate and my wife noticed a tag on the web site that they would match or beat any internet rate. I scoured the internet and found a lower price. We contacted Marriott and they gave us an excellent rate, about $100 off.
We arrived early, as we flew the red eye from LA. The room wasn't ready yet so we relaxed at the pool and beach with a few other guests. I might have had a little to much relaxing, so after a short nap our room was ready. Our room was on the highway side with construction going on across the street. The rooms here are very sound proof and with cranes and other construction equipment going we could not hear a thing.
We utilized the free shuttles to Duval street in the evenings after spending the days at the beach/pool. The shuttles were packed to the point that some guests were left behind and had to take cabs. They might increase the number shuttles or pick up times. But none the less it was great.
We ate daily either at the pool restaurant or the hotels fine inside restaurant. Both were very good having a nice variety of grub.
One of our nights at the hotel we spent happy hour at the hotel bar. The two bar tenders were some of the nicest folks we ever met. Expert mixologists the both of them. They mixed the best key lime martini I have ever had. The drinks are two for one so it is a super deal.
This is really a good hotel for the keys. A ways from the action, but just what the doctor ordered.
