Because tropical Key West is a year-round destination, you can time your visit to Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria Resort whenever you want. Each season has its merits, from the festive Fourth of July picnic, complete with poolside fireworks, to wintertime’s cooler weather (well, “cooler” for Florida — the average January temperature is a balmy 74 during the day and 69 in the evening). On the other hand, the summer humidity typically keeps the crowds at bay.
There is always something going on in Key West, and you needn’t leave the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel to stay occupied. Swim in one of the oceanfront pools, lounge on the 1,100-foot private beach or detoxify with a seaweed wrap at the onsite Spa Al Mare. Though if you want to explore the rest of the island, the staff at The Casa can point you to all the hot spots and help you decide how to best spend your vacation.
