Florida Keys Hotels

Establishment neighborhood
Casa Marina
1500 Reynolds St., Key West
This is a big, beautiful, Deco-style resort that somehow manages to strike a balance between the glitz of a Waldorf Astoria property and local clout: The structure has been here since the ’20s and is listed on the National Register for Historic Places. The massive, 300-plus-room compound sits on a private beach, so you can retreat to a lounge chair, or your beautifully appointed guest room, or the world-class spa whenever the craziness of Duval Street, which is walking distance from the hotel, gets to be too much.
Little Palm Island Resort & Spa
28500 Overseas Hwy., Little Torch Key
Lush tropical plants tower over the thatched-roof bungalows on the private white sand beach of this luxury resort on Little Palm Island. No phones, TVs, or kids under sixteen make it a romantic, secluded retreat with not much else to do besides lounge or learn how to deep sea fish or sky dive. The resort’s SpaTerre offers delicious sounding treatments inspired by the area, like coconut sugar scrubs and margarita-infused pedicures. They also offer massages on the beach for optimal relaxation.
