This graceful five-story resort taps into Old Key West with its eccentric pet collection, twisting vines and coastal decor, but really it’s a modern affair. The pearly-white vanilla-scented lobby features minimalist white chairs and eye-catching wildlife photographs, along with columns festooned in iridescent miniature tiles.
Bed and Bath
The 118 guestrooms are large, beach-inspired and unpretentious, with sleek white tile, cylindrical white lamps and tan wicker furnishings (in the room and on the balcony). Comfort comes first in the plush pillowtop beds, while modern amenities include an iHome docking station and an flat-screen TV. The highlight of the generous and well-stocked bathroom is a shower chamber lined in tiny shimmering tiles, but guests will also appreciate the rainfall shower option and KenetMD products.
The swanky Shor restaurant serves fresh-off-the-boat seafood and American cuisine in a chic oceanfront setting, with local items ranging from conch fritters to Jackman Ranch wagyu strip steak. On the other side of the pool, the Blue Mojito Bar and Grill features innovative cocktails, a 4 to 6 p.m. happy hour and tasty bar fare (the mahi mahi tacos are light and flavorful). The bar closes at 10 p.m., but the pool and hot tub are open until midnight. Wellness-minded folks can squeeze in a workout at the fitness center or book a relaxing spa treatment.
In the Area
Ask a Key West resident, otherwise known as a conch, and you’ll learn that the best way to explore the island is on a bicycle (with a cup holder). Wheel up to Hemingway’s old haunts Sloppy Joe’s and Captain Tony’s Saloon, and the popular dive Green Parrot Bar before cruising into Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, where you can swim in the pristine surf with some spectacular marine life. For a dinner on the town, try former bordello Blue Heaven or delicious tapas joint Santiago’s Bodega, then head out for a night on Duval Street.
How to Get There
Hyatt Centric is a modern gem placed amidst the charm of old town Key West. Conveniently located just off the main artery - Duval Street but quiet and calm with excellent staff and amenities. Rooms are large and very well maintained. The pool area is beautiful and also very well maintained.
We stayed here for a special weekend and I was blown away. We were on the 3rd floor with an immaculate view both sides of the ocean, it was to die for. It was huge and the shower was amazing. The staff was so kind a considerate. The greeted us with champagne. The were very clean and attentive. We stayed by the pool had some food which was also really good. We ended up going parasailing and renting bikes and gold cart. Highly recommend the golf carts. I cannot wait to go back! We will not be staying anywhere else!
The Hyatt is a beautiful property that is centrally located. Chelsea and Freja at the front desk were super helpful with directions and recommendations, and both were very nice. My sister thoroughly enjoyed an 80 minute massage at Jala Spa. We both enjoyed the sangria at Blue Mojito bar served by Megan. We had a great time and would love to return.
