Editor’s Review of Hyatt Centric Key West

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 Centric Key West 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
... more 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 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.

The entire property, including its 120 guestrooms, was completely renovated in 2016. And the hotel's look is bright, contemporary and streamlined. Blonde wood furnishings pair with tiled floors and pale, luminescent mosaic-style tiling in the bathrooms for a look that seems almost Scandinavian. Bright Florida colors -- oranges and blues -- make an appearance in the block-style contemporary paintings that hang on the walls.

All rooms have mini-fridges so you can store milk for bottles, yogurts and other quick snacks. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also standard throughout the property. Complimentary cribs are available upon request. There are a few rooms that connect to accommodate larger families. Rollaway beds are available only in rooms with one king bed. All rooms come with balconies.

Deluxe Rooms
Families can choose from two Deluxe Room options, both of which are 460 square feet in size. Enjoy one king bed or two queen beds. These rooms sleep between three and four guests.

Deluxe Gulf Front
Enjoy partial of full views of the Gulf in these rooms, which span 460 to 500 square feet. King and queen beds are available and all sleep between three and four guests.

King Salon
The largest option at the resort is the King Salon rooms, which are 625 square feet in size. Families will enjoy one king bed and one sofa bed to sleep up to four guests.
