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
Very nice hotel. Great location on Mallory Square side of Key West, amazing sunsets. Key West is a walking town or rent a bicycle, scooter or other small motorized vehicle. Parking can be difficult and it is so beautiful that you want to take in all the sites. You can tour The Little White House, Hemmingway’s Home etc or just enjoy the sunshine. There are small cafe restaurants or more expensive restaurants we did not have a bad experience.
This was our third time to Key West, second time alone and we enjoy it more each time. It is an amazing vacation for relaxing.
Hyatt Centric was excellent, great room, balcony. Location was perfect.
We took a taxi to and from the airport.
I took my wife of 29 years away for Valentine’s Day weekend and had a blast. The Hyatt Centric is at the end of Duval Street and at the beginning of fisherman’s wharf. The music and food at the docks are as good as the food and music on Duval. We walked everywhere. Starbucks is a block away and everything is accessible from the Centric. The staff from the front desk to the cocktail/pool hostess was superb. Thanks to all the staff at the Hyatt Centric. We have already booked Valentine’s Day weekend 2020 there.
A gem on the crowded side of Key West. I always stay on the southern most quieter end of Key West. But it was sold out. We picked the Hyatt Centric randomly and we were so pleasantly surprised. Small, far enough away from the crowd but central. Great little beach and dock with a swinging chair. Bar and rest. excellent. Special shout out to the staff and especially Courtney Mattison the Concierge, she could not be more helpful or accomadating. Top rated spa. There are bike, scooter and golf cart rentals right on the property. Rooms great, big bathroom and balcony. A good choice...
Great place very accommodating . Took the key west express over received a text from the manager asking if he could do anything for us, we asked if we could check in early and they let us check in at 1 pm . Great view of sunset from bar area though you will miss all of the great entertainment at Mallory square . Got up late after wondering around town they said no problem with a late check out . This will be my go to place in Key West .
great location to the bars, restaurants and the beach. Everything you need.... restaurant, pool, poor bar, spa, scooters and jet skis for rent, love amenities. Have a great time every time we visit Key West.
