Default MIchelle P (or anyone else) - Key West Questions

Hey gang......a coworker of mine and her sister want to go down to Key West for 4 - 5 days. They are looking for someplace to stay in the downtown area (close to everything so they won't have to rent a car.) Any suggestions? Also they are looking at either anytime in October OR early December.

Check the Banyon Inn, 1 block off of Duvall St, 2 pools, 1 Hot tub and an outdoor bar. Great location, 2-3 blocks from Kelly McGillis's restaurant.

We stayed at the Ocean Key Resort. It was pricey but very nice and very convenient.

They'd also do well with a B&B, and there's a Hilton resort that's convenient to everything that looks very nice. I think the cruise ships sometimes dock right by it.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Michelle P.

Go for the Hilton, right on Mallory Square.

If you want relaxation and Beach, away from the hustle and bustle, go for the Casa Marina (may be under another name) resort on the south side of the island.

By the way, Lisa, in the time frame they are going, they might either want to avoid or shoot for (depending on what kind of people they are) the last weekend in October. That's Fantasy Fest, which is kind of like a laid-back Mardi Gras. Most hotels are already booked by now for that weekend; and if they aren't, will be very expensive.

Also, I know you didn't ask, but a couple of great restaurants are Duffy's at Truman St. and Simonton St., and Croissants de France (wonderful breakfast) on Duval St.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

I have stayed at the Paradise Inn on Simonton Street.
In fact, I had my wedding there!

A friend raves about the Angelina Guest House [there is a Web site] which is also close to Duval St.

My favorite restaurants are Louie's Backyard, Blue Heaven, Margaritaville [of course!] and B. O.'s Fishwagon.

I'd also go in October [early] rather than in December.
