All-suite property in the heart of Key West
All guests are charged a daily resort fee of $45
This all-suite hotel wins lodgers over with its central location (just a block from Key West, Florida's lively Duval Street) and amenities. The property's $45 daily resort fee covers some of Santa Maria Suites' most noteworthy perks, including Dove ice cream bars and chocolates distributed during turndown service and the complimentary smoothies, bottled water and fresh fruit available at the property's two swimming pools. In-room amenities include flat-screen TVs, H2O toiletries, coffee makers and fully equipped kitchens. After you've gotten your fill of complimentary wine and snacks at the daily happy hour, head to the on-site restaurant – Ambrosia – for some Japanese eats. Recent guests also said the hotel's location means there are plenty of delicious restaurants within walking distance. It's the thoughtful extras and the friendly staff that have many past visitors wishing they could stay here year-round.

Critic Reviews


Santa Maria Suites, with 35 spacious suites with full-size kitchens, is an upscale, four-pearl property in the southernmost part of historic Key West. Guests get lots of freebies here – such as an afternoon wine hour with snacks, poolside smoothies and ice-cream bars, and bottled water and fresh muffin at turndown – but a mandatory resort fee is added to the bill.



This hotel features two-bedroom suites with state-of-the-art kitchens and upscale amenities. Marble and natural stone features give a unique feel to the property.



It's odd to call this a hidden gem when it sits on a prominent corner just one block off Duval, but you'd never know the luxury that awaits behind its concrete facade. Six two-story buildings completely surround the courtyard filled with towering date palms and free-form swimming pools, creating total seclusion from the outside world.
