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
This was our first stay at Hyatt Centric Key West. We opted for an full ocean view and got a huge room with two balconies. I will definitely be asking for one of those rooms again. 3 sliding doors provided great air flow.
Excellent hotel. No doubt the best hotel in Key West! Location is great. Staff is friendly. Amazing views! Rooms are very clean and modern. Expensive but worth the price if you want a nice place to stay. Balconies in every room!! Very peaceful area for a relaxing stay.
Enjoyed our stay immensely. Staff were friendly and attentive. Resort location is very central to key activities. Would definitely go back. Pool was small and only 3/12’ deep so didn’t really enjoy the pool.
Every excursion available right at the hotel. Hotel location is perfect, relaxing in the sun and activities all day. Then crazy Duvall street at night. The hotel was a couple blocks off the party so when you wanted to relax it was perfect.
The staff at the Hyatt Centric went above and beyond to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
