Fairfield Inn By Marriott Key West, Key West: 1,485 reviews and 7 photos
We were very pleased with our two night stay. The lobby and check in area is very modern and we were welcomed warmly and were given two strands of mardi gras style necklaces. Cute. Our room was ready when we got there so we had a quick check in. We had a room that overlooked the pool. The rooms all have outside entries and the interior is small but upbeat and clean.
The pool is very lovely day or night. We felt perfectly safe here. The staff was very friendly and checked quite often if we needed anything and asked how everything was. Even though the room is small, the bathroom is completely renovated with appealing tile surfaces. There were plenty of towels, hand and bath soap, shampoo and conditioner, although the towels were a bit thin. The sink was outside the shower area, which is always nice. There was always plenty of ice. All lights worked and airconditioning was fine. There was no fridge or microwave in this room.
Breakfast was served at 6:30 which was nice; because it is so warm here the breakfast area is outside on decks which overlook the pool. They had the same menu both mornings we were there. Boiled eggs, bagels, assortment of sweet rolls, juices, coffee, tea, milk,cold and hot cereals, yogurt and waffles. A big bowl of oranges and apples sat out each morning.
The location of this place is about a mile from the historic downtown. It is located on busy Roosevelt Avenue. The big problem in Key West is parking. There are two parking decks in the historic area and lots of parking meters which take one quarter for each ten minutes, so it's $1.50 an hour to park. The meters also take credit cards. There are a few all day $10 parking lots. However, we did locate a free parking area by The Hemmingway House. We went the first week in November which is a relatively low tourist time. Even so, there were a lot of people there and parking was difficult to find. The trolley stops at this Fairfield Inn, and it costs $29 for an all day off and on.
Before we left, we went over to the "beach" side of Key West and discovered it is completely different from the busy area where we stayed. There is a nice beach with an uncrowded street with a wide sidewalk for bicycling. There is a much more tropical feel and look on this side. We will try this the next time we visit the keys.
Unique Qualities: Definitely the large pool is the crowning characteristic of this hotel. We paid $110 a night with a Senior's rate, so it was a nice place for a reasonable price in a high tourist area.
