About Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa

Key West has long been known as a freewheeling, good-times destination for adults. But that doesn't mean you can't plan a wholesome and entertaining family vacation in America's southernmost city, too. And while it doesn't target families in particular, the Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa scores points as a good family travel hotel mostly due to its ideal location near the harbor, smack dab central in Old Town. From here, you're within a short, pleasant stroll -- mostly along the waterfront, if you prefer -- of Mallory Square, known for its nightly sunset celebration, as well as scores of restaurants on and near Duval Street and Front Street.

Upon arriving in Key West, you can basically park your car in the hotel's onsite parking lot for the duration of your stay and either plan to walk everywhere to get around or take one of Key West's sightseeing trains or trolleys to explore the island. And while the hotel is just a short walk to Duval Street, it feels set off in its own little world, thanks to the lush landscaping and waterfront setting that are pleasantly removed from the nearby party scene.

There's no Camp Hyatt (the chain's kids club) at this property, but there's plenty of family fun to be had nearby -- whether you want to bring the kids to an aquarium for an educational outing or head out on a snorkeling trip to the reefs for something more hands on. Most of your on-property hanging out will likely take place at the hotel's pool or small beach. And kids get a kick out of the resident parrot and turtles on the grounds, too.
