An online review portal directed by local travel company has named the best Key West inns this year, and results may surprise frequent visitors to this small island 128 miles from mainland Florida.
Like most travel destinations, Key West has its perennial favorites when it comes to Inns, Resorts, and Guest Houses. After all, this town is known for its great hospitality, fascinating and beautiful Conch style architecture, and rooms that come with some of the most gorgeous views in the country. But this year Key West Fishing Co. has come up with an online poll which gathers opinions from visitors to Key West, eager to share their experiences with Key West FL hotels, resorts, inns and guest houses.
Casa Marina rates as readers’ top choice when it comes to Key West resorts, with several reasons stated as to why. With recent purchase by Waldorf-Astoria company, Casa Marina has undergone renovations inside and out. From luxury accommodations to superior on-site amenities and activities like water sports and an expansive private beach, it’s easy to see why this resort tops the list.
According to those surveyed in the online poll, one Key West Inn not to miss is the Center Court Inn. Its proximity to everything going on in Old Town, plus its 1800s historical architecture and gabled ceilings are top reasons why poll-takers chose this lovely restored home as their second most popular place to stay in Key West.
When it comes to preferred style of accommodations for travelers to the Southernmost City, the traditional Bed and Breakfast is the clear winner. A unique architecture combined with warm and friendly hosts makes anyone feel at home. There are dozens of choices, only not all of them serve breakfast. In fact, most call themselves Guest Houses. The setting is intimate and private, accommodations are furnished in top of the line modern or traditional decor with luxuries like fine linens and towels. They are unique and charming, but not all of them specialize in serving a big breakfast. Poolside evening cocktails are more common, befitting the culture of Key West. Before a night out, hosts encourage their guests to unwind by the courtyard pool, meet other guests, or to just take a breather before heading back out to explore Key West.
These relaxing moments are what just about every traveler to Key West has in mind when booking a tropical vacation in Paradise. The guest house seems to perfectly serve up everything required for a totally relaxing vacation in the sun, with a place to come back to each day for rejuvenation, hospitality, and sometimes even new friends. That’s what Key West is all about.
Our readers and poll takers have done a fine job of making their voiced heard, and we encourage vacationers to consider all types of Key West accommodations before booking anything. For more information on booking a hotel, inn, guest house or vacation rental, visit www.discoveringfloridakeys.com.
