I am looking for feedback from the Insider's Group here for feedback on which is the best Marriott to stay at in the Florida Keys. I have 2 teenage kids (16 and 19), so I need more adult type of activities to occupy our time.
Thanks and looking forwartd to your suggestions, based on past experiences. Would also like to know about best airports to fly in and out of, and any free shuttles.
Where in the keys are you planning on going..Key West???
I found in Key West, the Marriott properties are not located as well as other hotel chains that are closer to downtown, duvall street and all the action. I would actually recommend looking at the Holiday Inn or Hyatt properties in Key West as they are centrally located and again where all the action is.
The Courtyard - 1.7 miles from downtown
Fairfield - 2.3 miles from downtown
Key West Marriott Beach Hotel - 3.5 miles from downtown
I have stayed at Key West Marriott Beach Hotel and it is a great resort but I felt it was very inconvienent to the action.
If I were to stay at a Marriott, I would problably stay at the Courtyard or Fairfield inn, although I have not stayed at either of these properties.
Maybe another Insider can give their insights into these locations.
I was just at Key West...You may want to view the link below:
Where have all my postings go on Key West that I posted..It took a lot of effort and would appreciate an answer to why this posting was eliminated. For
How many other of my postings which were put in as ideas were eliminated? These took a lot of effort on my part and suprised that they have been eliminated.
By the way, the Hyatt was within easy walking distance to Mallory Square (A must visit in Key West) and the Wharf Area. I am a Lifetime Platinum Member with Marriott and almost always recommend staying at Marriott Properties. But in Key West, it is hard to beat the Hyatt Location.
Another Idea..If you apply for the Hyatt Chase Credit card, you get two free night immediately...I used those two free nights on my recent trip to Key West.
I was at the Marriott a year ago. Great hotel - the rooms are really spacious, with washer and dryer and full kitchens. They have a shuttle bus that runs pretty regularly to shuttle you to the strip (they drop you on/off at Jimmy Buffett's restaurant). We had no problems using the shuttle, especially in light of the trade-off of good accomodations. Often times, the driver dropped us and others off at other places, if asked. The slight inconvenience of the shuttle was worth the luxury of the hotel, in our opinion. Nice pool - quiet especially after the noise of the strip.
