It is really nice here and you will not want to leave! Do know that the beach is right across the street and this is the main public beach in Key West, all happening 24 hours a day. The pool is sweet and it is the ideal way to clean up after you hit the seawater.
I have to say that the showers and bathrooms are just fantastic. That is not the way all the local bed and bathrooms are. Upscale is better than old town.
On the phone before you book, if you can get the manager just ask for a deal. If you are staying for three or more nights, ask for a free night or 20 percent off. It work for us, four nights paid and one night free.
My vote would be for less space, but more modern. The Sheraton is a sure thing. If you rent a condo in Key West, make sure they have very detailed videos to watch, so you know that the unit has everything, plus is nice, clean, and modern. Make sure the videos do not skip anything, like the bathrooms. Be sure to see everything.
I have off on Oct 20 - Oct 26. I will make the reservation for us tomorrow at the Sheraton Suites (5 nights). What a fun spot!
Thanks for the great lower keys travel information...I do want to pass on my thought at the Sheraton. They did a fine job of maximizing the hotel room, taking out the dead zones in the cabinets, and maximizing the space better. That is definitely the way to go if the budget allows. Marathon is cheaper, but I like the place for sure.
