Nestled amongst some of Key West's most popular attractions, the Ocean Key Resort offers a welcome dose of serenity just steps from Key West Harbor, Old Town, and Mallory Square. Each of the boutique hotel's 100 rooms has a private balcony overlooking either historic Duval Street or the ocean, letting guests be a part of the action on their own terms. The rooms are a charming mix of traditional hand-painted furniture, with luxurious extras like jetted tubs. For those looking to venture into the great outdoors, there's a waterfront pool, hot tub, draped cabanas, and poolside bar service. The Sunset Pier restaurant is a local favorite, as it extends over the ocean and features live music and dancing. There's also Hot Tin Roof, a "conch-fusion" restaurant that gives a nod to one of the area's most talented icons, Tennessee Williams. If all that dining and sunbathing gets to be too much, pop into SpaTerre for a Key lime margarita spa pedicure.
