Such a beautiful relaxing place to stay. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Nights can be what you want whether sittimg at the bar outside or eating on the patio. We couldn't ask for better accommodations. You will definitely enjoy yourself !

Between the two Waldorf resorts this one has an actual beach to enjoy. It isn't huge but it is user friendly. We stayed while a construction project was still being finished so it was loud during the day/week. Upgrades are needed however the staff is very friendly.

I'll start from the top Peter Carmichael the general manager has no tact, I was told that I was not allowed to keep our $1000 bike in our room even after I stated that there was no available space in there so called racks. He had me escorted by security to show me where I could keep my bicycles. Even... More

The place sucked. Construction everywhere. Food Sucked. Birds attacked us (and we are from Florida) We expected a lot more from a Waldrof. We could have stayed anywhere on Key West (I mean anywhere). I will not stay here again.

The hotel itself is quite good - location, beach, etc. The management however, was horrible. We did not have hot water for the first night that we were there and the hotel management was reluctant and not helpful at resolving the issue. Eventually it worked out but still it was a mood killer. Other than that, great city, lots of... More

Good bar / nice pool. Great location near Duval St and also close to southernmost marker. Rooms are upscale but definitely show wear in carpet and bathrooms. Not what you would expect from such a high end property. Great nespresso in room coffee makers. Many rooms have good view of ocean - note that palms do obstruct views. Great beach.... More

We booked a room with a courtyard view which was actually quite nice. Overall we were very disappointed with the overall poor condition of the hotel. For the price we paid to stay there we expected the hotel to be in top notch condition. It was worn out and very much in need of updating. The only maintenance we observed... More

My recent trip to Key West could have been a disaster but luckily one the Waldorf's competitors was able to accommodate us. I do not get the chance to travel on pleasure often so I thought I would indulge and book my spouse and I at a luxury hotel for a few days. Upon arrival at the Waldorf Astoria Reach... More
