Olivia By Duval Key West ReviewsLast week my wife and I unexpectedly found ourselves in Key West for a three day weekend. We needed to get away from the madness of Tampa traffic and our rat race lifestyle. It had just been too long. We jumped on the net and started calling Key West hotels. We quickly found Olivia By Duval because of the price on the list so we read the unbiased reviews from guests that had stayed there. We looked at the virtual tours and watched the video and it seemed just as nice as the others we checked out. The price was right for our last minute budget so we called to book the room. We also read the great reviews on every page and thought we made a good choice. When we got down there we realized we made a great choice. The room we got was small and they told us it was and that's why we wanted it. It was small and so was the price. It wasn't at all uncomfortable. The room was bigger than my childhood bedroom and larger than most bedrooms in a house. I don't dance around or need a large amount of floor space in a hotel room. It was the perfect fit for us. We had a blast in Key West and when we need to just get away, we'll be calling Olivia by Duval. Thanks!
Olivia by duval was a house at one time. It has been converted into a hotel and bathrooms have been added onto the rooms of the house. This is what to expect for a regular room here. The rooms are comfortable enough and for the discount you get for staying here certainly makes it worth it. The owner showed us a couple of huge suites for a future stay we are planning with family. They have nice apartment style suites, complete with full kitchens and multiple rooms and bathrooms. If you plan on staying in Key West for a long period of time, then Olivia by Duval Key West would be my choice. You could live in these suites for as long as you could afford not to work and be a beach bum. I thought more about it while I was there and if we just used the kitchen for a few meals during the week, we could rent the bi suite and spend less overall. As the name suggests they are by Duval street. They are literally right on the edge of the bar district and the art district if you will. Not that Key West is a metropolis, but Duval is the main strip and it is clearly divided into two sections. Where Olivia by Duval is situated in between the two, you have the best of both worlds. Another big selling point is South Beach and Ft. Zachery Taylor State Park are both within easy walking distance. Beach, bars, and fun around every corner. Key West is the place to let loose and Olivia by Duval is the best place to stay.
We just returned from a wonderful week long vacation in Florida. We were in Key West for a couple of nights and found ourselves regretting not just flying right in and staying the entire week. Next vacation, that is exactly what we are doing. We go to Florida every winter and have hit the usual spots and just never made it all the way down. I thought it was kind of bunch of hype built around this little island. I'm not sure why but I just assumed it had to be limited because of it's size. I have to say I was floored by how they have maximized the space on this little jem of an island. I found out there are more bars per capita here tan anywhere else in the USA. So obviously we loved Key West and I found the Olivia by Duval on the complimentary computer in the lobby of our Miami hotel. I watched the video and thought this place looks fun and it had good rates. What I didn't realize is that with all of the bars and fun things to do, there aren't a lot of hotel in Key West, and there are fewer that are reasonably priced. Needless to say we were lucky they had a cancellation a the last second and had a room for us. The pool was great and the beach at the end of Duval was awesome. Olivia by Duval is in a perfect location if you want to be within easy stumbling distance form the bars but not right in the midst of them. The further you walk away from Olivia, the louder things get. That is if you're walking towards Mallory Square. If you walk the other way, it's quiet and in about five minutes you'll find yourself on a white sand beach with a lagoon kind setting. Jet skies are cruising by, people are parasailing and there is a bar and restaurant right there on the beach. Now for the best part. Grab a chair and waitresses bring you drinks from the bar. I officially have heaven on earth. The price and quality of Olivia By Duval made our time that much more enjoyable. I would recommend booking your hotel in Key West the second you know your going. If you come down at the last second you may not be so lucky and get stuck with an overpriced room. Stay at Olivia, I know I will.
