I was a first time visitor to the Albury Court as well as Key West. I had always heard Key West was a one-of-a-kind place so I had large expectations to meet. Well let’s just say that I cannot wait to return! Besides the excitement of Duval Street, the amazing scenery, and the lovely people, my Key West trip was also special because of my experience at the Albany Court. I used to work for a hotel as a Supervisor so I am very observant when I call, check in and stay the night. Let me tell you from the phone call I made to the day I checked out, everything was awesome. I called on a Monday while visiting Ft. Myers and spoke to a wonderful person (I really apologize, I forgot their name). They answered questions regarding all of my concerns such as how close of a walk Duval Street was, what the rooms were like, and popular area attractions. I had originally made my reservation to arrive Wednesday but I got unexpectedly sick that morning and figured I couldn’t reschedule. Well I was wrong! They let me make my reservation for another day and accommodated all of my needs. This is top notch customer service. I really appreciated that.
Sunday, I left Ft. Myers bright and early and drove to Key West. A little tired once we arrived, we hoped we could check in although it was only 1 PM. I parked on the street and headed on in to check in. Wow the lobby was so quaint, updated, nice and cold!, and the refreshments were much needed. The super friendly woman (again I forget her name) welcomed us and was super helpful. She let us check in and told us where to park. We arrived at the room and were pleasantly surprised! It was gorgeous. It had a very clean, modern, yet Old Key West feel. We loved the ceiling fans – huge plus. The bedroom had two queen beds, a large bathroom area, and a cute little kitchen area. It accommodated four people easily. I also loved the beds and bathroom products- the Rusk lotion was great! After checking in, we walked to Duval which was only about four blocks away in the walk was just so beautiful seeing all the Key West homes along the way. I loved the location of this Inn, very quiet yet close to the action. The next morning we headed over to breakfast and let me tell you this might have been the best breakfast at a hotel I’ve ever had. Not to mention that it was free, it was fresh! I loved the bagels, croissants, fruit, cereal, coffee! Everything was super fresh and awesome! I told all of my friends and family to give this place a try for the breakfast. The courtyard where breakfast was set up was very nice. I loved the pool in the waterfall, it was very relaxing.
I hope to visit the Albury Court again someday and next time I’m visiting Florida I will definitely have to make a trip back. It definitely did not make me want to come all the way back to Massachusetts that’s for sure! I just want to say thank you for such a great trip and I will remember it forever.By: Erika Johnson June 18, 2014
