Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On Duval Street, but removed from the action

Southernmost on the Beach and its sister hotels are in a great location to experience all that Key West has to offer. The hotel is right on the beach, and on the quieter end of Duval Street, within a five-minute walk of bars and restaurants.

Key West is the westernmost of the Florida Keys, and offers a thriving nightlife scene, as well as great diving, shops, restaurants, and decent beaches -- all within a few blocks. It can feel like a bit of a tourist trap with its tacky bars, hordes of cruise ship passengers, and T-shirt shops, but it’s one of the few Keys that has historic sites to visit. On the literary side, Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams spent a big part of their lives here, and their homes have now been turned into museums.

  • 9-minute drive to Key West International Airport
  • 71-minute drive to The Florida Keys Marathon Airport
  • 1-minute walk to the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory
  • 9-minute walk to Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park and Beach
  • 10-minute walk to the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum
  • 15-minute walk to Higgs Beach, a favorite among the gay community
  • 3-minute drive to the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center, with exhibits about local fauna and flora
  • 5-minute drive to the famous Sloppy Joe’s Bar, supposedly Hemingway’s favorite
  • 5-minute drive to the Key West Museum of Art and History
  • 6-minute drive to the Key West Shipwreck Museum
  • 6-minute drive to Mallory Square, where the famous Sunset Celebration takes place
  • 6-minute drive to the Key Plaza Shopping Center
