I loved Casa Marina but it’s also HELLA expensive

Thank you! And yes, everything down there is hella expensive, I was not prepared!

smart

Hotel prices in Florida seem to be high everywhere now. The Hampton Inn in Boca was showing more than $300/night for a weekend in March. I used to pay around $100.

LOVE Casa Marina.

It depends on what you’re looking to do. Hyatt Centric is a great location if you want to be active. Just a couple of blocks from the pier where most of the boats and excursions board as well as a couple of blocks from Duval St. Ocean Key and Opal Key were nearby and looked a bit nicer, but we booked on short notice and they didn’t have rooms. If you’re looking to sit on a beach I’d look at the other side of the island and/or further north.

Casa Marina is a wallet-friendly $4,309 for 3 nights. Ah.

funny

theres a place called shell or seashell or something, small spot, labelled as a hostel but they do have private rooms for individual bookings. not a far walk from duval street, i stayed there every year for christmas for years

Casa Marina is nice, but it is actually a bit far from the main action of Key West. Its perk is having a beach and is kiddo friendly. I like staying closer to the pier. It puts you closer to the Sunset Festival (must do!), walkable to Blue Heaven for brunch (yum!) Duval and other touristy things. There was a Westin years ago that I liked, but I think it’s now a Margaritaville-branded hotel. Definitely not a Waldorf-Astoria experience but should hopefully be a little easier on the wallet.

Are you planning to rent a car? My SO and I went in September of last year for 3 days. We stayed at the Key West Marriott Beachside and felt it was affordable.

I recently went and stayed at Ocean Edge Key West. So great for kids too - the pool area is safe, they have games on the lawn, it’s beautiful. It’s secluded and not right in the town area - it’s about 10 mins drive to downtown. Loved it. Highly recommend. Rooms were delightful, food and service was wonderful, and price was really reasonably. Paid about $220 a night and it’s a super plush hotel.

I have booked the Oceans Edge Key West. Thank you Associate Director 1! And thank you, travel Fish, for your advice & local insights. Stoked for the escape from New York and NSFW Key West action (vicariously). 🏝

Have a great time!

I’ve liked Southernmost Beach Resort. It’s at the end of Duval by the buoy. It’s far enough from the riff raff, but also close enough to walk to the busy part of Duval.

We stayed at The Marker in Key West and loved it. Could walk to all the action on Duval Street
