The most famous of the Florida Keys, Key West is renown for its laid-back nature. Lined with swaying palms and lapping blue waters, the island is famous for its watersports, fishing and diving. Key West shines the brightest when it sets in Mallory Square.
Overlooking a seemingly endless ocean, where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Atlantic Ocean, you will see a sunset like none other in the United states-a sunset that is giving an applause on a daily basis while Pirate ships sail in the distance.
Each night thousands of people flock to Mallory Square for the famed sunset celebrations and to take in the local flavor, panoramic views, and local entertainment; it is a perfect date night spot!
All rooms and suites feature elegant living and dining areas, over-sized Jacuzzis and balconies with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Key West Harbor or historic Mallory Square and Duval Street (the highlight of Key West nightlife). Other hotel amenities include: wired and wireless high-speed Internet access, twice daily turn down service, on-site audio visual and technology services, express mail, color printer/fax and photo copying services, along with seasonal pavilion tent and outdoor venues that play host to special events daily.
Take a dip in the pool and grab a Key West legendary “Hot Tin Tini” from the poolside Liquid Lounge overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Watch out for the birds who seem to both swim, and drink directly from the hotel pool without shame. There is a fitness Center with circuit and aerobic machines, and on-property Traders Boutique with a variety of items ranging from clothing to art!
And of course Key West is all about water sports. Call the kind, and well skilled folks at The Fury Water Adventures Key West. You can enjoy activities like: Sunset sailing, kayak eco-tours, jet skiing, world-renowned deep sea and flats fishing, scuba diving and Snorkeling near third largest coral reef system in the world, and an abundance of multi activity daily excursions.

I highly recommend visiting this property. The staff was exceptional, even saying hello as you passed through the hotel’s many floors and sections. The robes are plush, and the weather is incredible all year round. HOT TIN ROOF, the hotel’s signature restaurant, is award winning and serves up some of my favorite food on the island. SUNSET PIER is a sight to be seen; where you can find upscale dining with breathtaking ocean views. At SPATERRE, all of the day spa treatments and packages are designed to help the guests relax and transport them worlds away.
