The staff is wonderful, great location, beautiful grounds and the rooms are clean. This is our favorite hotel in Key West, we stay here about six times a year and love it!!
Rooms were ready. Clean. Nice and cool. Beds were incredibly comfortable. Pool and breakfast area were fine. Check in took a few minutes but in Key West..one shouldn't be in a rush anyway. Parking is a bit of a puzzle but can't blame hotel for that. Would recommend and would (Likely will) return ...
We were put on the “3rd floor” the ceiling slants over the bedroom. If you are taller than 5’ you can’t stand up. We laughed about it but if you are on extended stay you may want to request alternative accommodations.
Heron House was a wonderful place. Lovely old historic building, spacious accommodations, helpful and professional staff. Would recommend to anybody wanting a great place to stay while in Key West.
The hotel common areas and staff are very good and helpful. I stopped to ask a question or two several times and always received accurate information. While coming and going they front desk staff always had a hello and a smile which makes me feel like a valued customer. The remodeled lobby/bar is ...
rented a bike in Islamorada and rode down; locked up the bike in the front yard for pick up. Then,had a beautiful room overlooking the water, and was a few blocks from Fantasy Fest. Ideal.
With their fair share of monuments and museums, the islands of the Florida Keys are rich with historical attractions. But check into a historic hotel in the Florida Keys and you can experience a slice of its history first-hand. Whether it’s a grand hotel of yesteryear or a converted historical building, you can check into these live-in antiques all over the Florida Keys.
From Victorian inns to 19th-century mansions decked out with chandeliers, historic hotels in the Florida Keys come in many forms, but they’ve usually been updated for the modern traveller with the WiFi and air conditioning.
The most recognisable historic hotels are probably the simple Conch houses of Key West. Originally built in the 19th century, these buildings dominate the island’s architectural landscape and many have been converted into guesthouses.
Each aspect of these wooden structures, such as their shutters, roof hatches and wide verandas were designed with the hot climate in mind. The earliest of these are simple in design, but the facades became more elaborate as the trend for decorative elements grew in popularity.
From pirates to literary legends, many of Key West’s former inhabitants have left their mark on the islands. There are historical hotels and attractions from all eras with stories to tell. Crane Point Museum, Nature Centre and Historic Site in Marathon, which promotes the heritage of the Florida Keys, and the quirky, must-visit History of Diving Museum in Islamorada are two of the best.
But most of the must-see historical sites can be found in Key West. It’s a tiny island, so wherever your historic hotel is, you won’t have to travel far to visit heritage sites and museums like the Harry S. Truman Little White House, the Key West Art and History Museum and the Key West Shipwreck Museum.
One of the most popular of the island’s literary landmarks is the Hemingway House and Museum, the Spanish colonial building in which the author Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote some of his finest works.
