Marriott Key West?

Recommended Posts

My main concern would be that the Marriott is 2-3 miles away from the "action" of Key West. I always stay in Old Town on streets within 3-4 blocks walking distance to Duval St. - this is the area of Key West that actually "feels" like Key West to me. Among large resorts, the Hyatt and Westin are much closer to the Key West scene.

We're getting married in Key West June 26, 2010 at the Pier House resort. We wanted to stay in the Old Town area so that our guests could easily walk around.

 

In November, we went on a scouting mission and visited the Pier House, Hyatt, Westin & Ocean Key (all are right around Mallory Square where the sunset celebrations are and in easy walking distance of everything).

 

I'm sure the Marriott is lovely, but it is away from the Key West action and parking is very difficult in Old Town, although I saw on the Marriott site that they do offer a downtown shuttle.

I second the Pier House over the Marriot - you want to be close to Duval St - it made all the difference for us. The other end of the island is totally different.

 

I had my reception dinner at the Harbourview Cafe in the Pier House, it is absolutely gorgeous there. Everyone couldn't afford to stay there so we stayed at the Southernmost Hotel on the opposite end of Duval and was so happy with it. We are already planning a trip back there for our one year anniversary. It was the perfect price and location for us to stay.

 

If I had the money I would go with the Pier House for the wedding - how many guests are you planning?
