We like

Located in the Key West Historic District, Merlin Key West is perfectly-placed for experiencing everything the area has to offer. Famous for its watersports and historic sites, Key West is a tiny island paradise in the Gulf of Mexico. Author Ernest Hemingway lived there for eight years, and his legacy remains. Visit the Hemingway museum in his former home, just 350 yards from the hotel, before stopping off at his favorite hangout, Sloppy Joe’s Bar on Duval Street. On the eight-block stretch of Duval street you’ll find restaurants, nightlife and shopping, just steps from the hotel. Also within a one mile radius of Merlin Key West you’ll find the ‘Winter White House’ of former President Harry S. Truman, Sunset Pier, South Beach and Mallory Square.
