Key West Luxury Hotels

Florida’s answer to the Caribbean, Key West has more of a cosmopolitan feel than the other Florida Keys. With warm temperatures and a relaxed attitude to life, this exclusive island is the ideal choice for the discerning holiday visitor. It combines the best aspects of a beach resort with up-and-coming art galleries, intriguing museums and a plethora of well-known residents. President Harry Truman wintered here and the great American writers Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams both called the island home.

Things to see in Key West

Travel in Key West is shaped by the water, with boat, canoe and kayak rentals offering one of the best ways to explore the complete coastline. Bespoke cruises provide visitors with an opportunity to explore the bay in comfort, with routes tailored to your specific interests. The water is not the island’s only attraction, however. Inland, there are numerous historical and cultural attractions. Key West holds some sights of exceptional natural beauty, with unmissable sunsets which are best viewed from Mallory Square. Key West reviews never fail to mention the fascinating Ernest Hemingway House, which gives an insight into the private life of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. The Little White House also has an interesting history. Built in 1890 as a naval command center, it later served as a winter White House for President Truman and was also used as a tactical base for other American Presidents during the Cold War.
