U.S. News Review

Cleanliness might seem like a given at a luxury hotel, but the guests at Parrot Key don't take it for granted. According to them, the immaculate condition of the rooms and grounds is one of the property's best characteristics. However, Parrot Key's other upscale amenities don't hurt. Situated on five lush acres, this waterfront hotel boasts four swimming pools and on-site water sports. And the Caribbean-inspired rooms aren't too shabby either. Recent guests say the rooms are larger compared to other Key West properties, and all accommodations are appointed with wood furniture, and a terrace, balcony or porch. Plus, the hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi access. The on-site restaurant, Café Blue, also earns praise for its casual poolside eats. You'll find the Parrot Key on the northern side of Key West, about 2 miles west of Duval Street and about a 10-minute drive from Mallory Square.

Critic Reviews


“The beachy, Conch-clapboard-style villas, suites, and rooms, meanwhile, are class acts all the way, and the largest in Key West.”
Award: Frommer's Exceptional


“The decor is Bahamian-inspired, featuring brightly colored furniture (lime green, pink, turquoise), floral print throw pillows, and tropical art work.”


“While there’s not really a beach at Parrot Key, there’s plenty of sandy real estate with lounge chairs overlooking the water, intimate tropical swimming pools and easy access to the rest of the island where you might find a place to dip in the Atlantic Ocean or Gulf of Mexico.”
