An Old World Key West resort
Sponsored page. This property is not Star Rated.
The Reach, A Waldorf Astoria Resort is a small getaway with a tropical, relaxed atmosphere. Of course, you’ll want to spend most of your time outside at the waterfront hotel. The pool is comfortable, surrounded by plenty of chairs, and the stunning private beach is just steps away.

The Reach is conveniently located within walking distance to all that Old Town Key West has to offer. It sits next door to sister property Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, and you can use the neighboring hotel’s two pools and spa as well.

You’ll encounter warm hospitality from the moment you arrive, when you are greeted by the valet and doorman. The genuine friendliness of the entire staff makes you feel welcome at the luxury hotel. Whether you need a reservation for a great steak dinner at Spencer's by the Sea or a Jet Ski tour of Key West with Barefoot Billy’s, the staff will take care of you.

Things to Know

  • If you plan to book a treatment at Spa al Mare, just remember that it is located at The Reach’s sister resort, Casa Marina next door.
  • The Key West resort works with a third-party provider, Barefoot Billy’s, to offer an array of watersports activities and relaxing sunset cruises.
  • Stunning wildlife images from Alan Maltz, the state of Florida's official fine arts photographer, can be seen throughout The Reach's public spaces.
The Rooms
  • Each room at The Reach, A Waldorf Astoria Resort is comfortable and well equipped, with an iPod docking station, an LCD flat-screen television and a Nespresso machine.
  • Additionally, each room comes with a furnished private balcony. It’s a scenic spot for your morning caffeine fix.
  • Filled with tan and cream, the soothing tropical décor makes each room feel warm and homey.
  • Beds, framed with woven dark-brown headboards, are extremely comfortable, and may make you question getting up at all.
The Restaurants
  • Spencer’s by the Sea is the Key West hotel’s all day dining venue. Breakfast consists of either a buffet or locally inspired a la carte options—think huevos rancheros or Key West pink shrimp Benedict.
  • The décor of Spencer’s by the Sea restaurant is filled with dark wood, red velvet and provocative pictures. While the room is dark and intimate, we prefer the ambiance of the outdoor terrace—it overlooks the beach and is just beautiful.
  • The steak house menu includes a variety of cuts as well as fresh seafood, along with some delectable potato dishes. Try the twice-baked potato, but share it with a friend; the cheesy, carb-loaded side is too big to indulge on your own.
  • Save room for dessert. We could not talk about Spencer’s by the Sea without mentioning the decadent 24-layer chocolate cake.
