Four Star Key West hotels

There's no place quite like Key West, the beautifully weird tropical island that lies literally at the end of the road. Drive south from Miami along 100 miles of highway—suspended above the Gulf's aquamarine waters—to get to the fabled 'Conch Republic.' Here you'll find a small city crackling with the energy of its Cuban, Bahamian, and odd-ball artist communities. Its sunsets are a marvel, but it's at night that the streets—lined with historic Caribbean mansions, eclectic restaurants, and bizarre little galleries—really come to life.

Things to see in Key West

This tiny tropical city is closer to Cuba than Florida. So visitors inevitably feel a magnetic pull to the painted buoy at Southernmost Point, marking the very end of the USA. But the best place to gaze, when the sun slips down, is undoubtedly Mallory Square. Each evening a crowd gathers here to kick off the Sunset Celebration—a mini carnival with a backdrop of truly spectacular sunsets. Key West has long been a refuge for artists and writers. You can dip into that heritage by visiting Ernest Hemingway House or Tennessee Williams' one-time home. The artistic bent still thrives here. It's most apparent at the Studios of Key West, with its sculptures, striking art installations, and poetry readings. And no visit to Key West is complete without a stroll down Duval Street. During the day, its kitsch and quirk are charming; as night draws in, this bar-lined avenue crosses firmly to the wild side.

If you're looking for quality accommodation—with a little quirk and character—then the diverse 4-star hotels in Key West are happy to oblige. Whether it's the splendor of a Greek revival mansion or the charm of a shot-gun cottage, boutique hotels in the 'Conch Republic' serve up plenty of left-field choice. You might find yourself watching a cabaret show in the hotel's bar, dining with sophistication on a Victorian veranda, or slipping into a pool in a 'secret garden.' And naturally, all hotels in Key West come with the warmth and friendliness that the Conchs are so renowned for.

Where to stay in Key West

The Old Town's streets and lanes are where you'll find the most intriguing four-star hotels in Key West. This westernmost sliver of the island is divided into several districts, each with their own character. Stay at a bungalow or mansion hotel in the Historic Sea Port area, and you'll find Duval Street and Mallory Square literally around the corner. You can discover some of the most refined 4-star hotels in Key West's Uptown, near to the Southernmost Point. Alternatively, you can enjoy a luxurious resort experience at one of several 4-star hotels in Key West's Northside Resort.

How to get to Key West

One thing is for certain—travel to Key West is never dull. You can choose to drive in from Miami, along the elegantly elevated Overseas Highway 1. Or you can arrive at the Bight Ferry Terminal after traveling by high-speed ferry from Ft. Myers Beach. Cruise ships dock at Mallory Square Dock, right in the heart of town. Flights to Key West International Airport come from Atlanta, Charlotte, and Miami. From the airport you'll need to catch a bus or taxi into town. Once there, it's fun to 'go light' in your travel around Key West—hire a scooter, bike, or even a golf cart.
