My boyfriend and I visited Key West a few weeks ago for my birthday and stayed at the Albury Court Hotel. I was instantly drawn to the hotel based on the pictures online. Upon arrival the front desk staff was incredibly kind and welcoming, answering all my little touristy questions. Despite reading about parking in previous reviews, we actually found a spot on the street across from the hotel that we left the car in for the duration of our stay with no problem (we were very lucky!) The room itself is definitely cozy, but who is really planning on spending that much time in the room when in Key West anyways? Plus, the smaller room keeps with the feel on the older historic inn. For some reason I did think the pictures online showed some rooms having hardwood floors, but ours had carpet. I would have preferred hardwood. The room did have all the essentials we needed including a mini fridge which was nice for leftovers. The only slight downside is that despite our AC unit being on the whole time we were there, the room felt slightly humid. That may just be a Key West thing. The best part of the hotel by far though is the amazingly quaint and adorable courtyard with the lap pool. It was the perfect place to sit under a big palm after a day of activities or under the waterfall in the pool. Plus the random rooster jumping in and out of the courtyard was really a hoot. Breakfast was standard and tasty, and the location was absolutely perfect for us!
Just a short walk to Duval street, and even shorter walk to the marina where a lot of the day tour boats leave from. Actually, if you’re up for it and in shape, the whole island is pretty much walk-able. We spent one morning walking the perimeter of the island and it was beautiful seeing the water from different angles and the colors and flavors of Key West on the interior. I’d highly recommend it! In any event, this hotel will not disappoint!By: Joanne Wallach on May 26, 2016
