Historical Traveler Reviews La Mer Hotel and Dewey House Key West
My husband and I spent 3 relaxing days at La Mer and Dewy House in July. We stayed in room 410, which was a wonderful room. The room was large and beautiful, with a great oceanfront balcony. This was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in, similar to one at the Four Seasons - but larger. Continental breakfast and afternoon tea served on the oceanfront balcony were delicious. Service from the concierge, Randall, was excellent. We enjoyed the location at the quiet end of Key West. Our favorite restaurant, Louie's Backyard, was only a short walk away. We were in Key West a week after Hurricane Dennis, so the beach was messy with seaweed. The pool was only okay. We preferred the small patio in back of Dewey House, which had a "cold tub". This is an execellent choice for a quiet, romantic get-away.
My girlfriend and I spent about a month trying to decide where to stay in key west for a weekend getaway and thankfully chose la mer and dewey house. We stayed in room 404 which was absolutely wonderful. The room had a view of the ocean, with a private sitting area, as well as a 42 inch plasma. Here's my summary of the hotel:
Wonderful Place To Stay
We chose this hotel at the suggestion of a friend and were grateful-- We spent 6 days at Le Mer and loved every minute of it. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious; we had a lovely view of the water and private beach. Staff were friendly, and we made good use of the pools and tiki bar. It was about a 40-minute leisurely stroll down Duval St. to Mallory Square and the more famous bars, but there were cabs readily available if that's too much exercize for your vacation. I would highly recommend this hotel!
Good: Beautiful, clean rooms with cozy beds. Air conditioners adequate, but keep the bathroom door closed for maximum coolness. Nice breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels, muffins, english muffins, coffee, juice, expresso. Nice high tea with fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, iced tea, expresso, coffee. Clean pool at the Southernmost on the Beach. Nice pier at that hotel too.
Live like a Millionaire for a weekend
I stayed at La Mer and The Dewey House years ago and it was quite nice, but after the recent renovations it is one of the best B & B's in the country. Plasma TV's, super high threadcount sheets, antique furniture that looks like it was stolen from Ralph Lauren's mansion and fantastic breakfasts (Belgian Waffles made to order, and crossiants as good as in Paris), and afternoon teas with an Ocean view. I was in room 407 at La Mer and it was very spacious with a brand new glass enclosed shower that could fit a small car. Service was excellent and friendly. Along with the Gardens and the Marquesa this is the Best loding in Key West.
Luxurious Bed and Breakfast right on Duval Beach!
I highly recommend La Mer - Dewey House. This perfect Bed and Breakfast is on the end of Duval Street, and as the only B&B right on the beach. It's expensive, but everything is worth it. We had a wonderful time there last year. Beautiful rooms in beautiful buildings. Very clean! The staff is very friendly and they have a great service. The breakfast is the best we ever had in a B&B. There is a high tea in the afternoon, all sort of snacks, fruits, drinks and lots more. When we got home, we received a postcard from the staff of La Mer. Just to thanks us that we've stayed there during our holiday! If you looking for something special, good service, a friendly staff and a B&B that is right at the beach, than this is the place for you.
On a disgusting beach
We selected Dewey House for its oceanfront location. Too bad the beach was closed due to sewage.
MOST FABULOUS PLACE IN KEY WEST
My husband I got married here and it could not have been more perfect.
We stayed in the Dewey House for over 8 nights and loved every minute.
We could walk less than 50 feet to Duval Beach Bar for lunch and then another 10 feet to the beach where they had padded lounge chairs and brought us drinks. It was beautiful, convenient, and friendly. We had a hot tub down stairs along with continental breakfast. Our room was clean and had a beautiful view. We will definitely be back.
Best in Key West
La Mer is great all around. The bed and breakfast has wonderful amenities with the charm of old Key West. It is extremely well situated in that it is close to Duval Street but far enough away that the hustle and bustle of Duval does not disturb the experience. The property has one of the few sandy beaches in Key West with a pool and a pier. If one wants to relax in the sun, this is the place. The staff are helpful with ideas and suggestions. A little pricey so it is good for a couple wanting a special time together. Don't know that I would bring kids but that is typical for a bed and breakfast. For a family trip, try the Southern Most Hotel next door that shares the beach, pool and pier of La Mer.
My husband and I love Key West and have stayed at the Marquessa in the past ( wonderful place). This time we could not get reservations there and instead ended up with last minute reservations at the Dewey House, billed as a luxury Bead and Breakfast. We had our doubts.We were very wrong. Dewey House proved to be even better. There are few beaches in Key West and this is right on one. The location is at the end (quiet end I might add) of Duval Street which is where all the action is so you can walk everywhere. Since it is part of the much larger Southernmost Hotel group, it has use of three pools as well.The Dewey house itself is a lovely old Conch home outfitted in a very luxurious manner. We were fortunate to have the upstairs unit, number 420 I think it was. It has a kitchen with ice maker in the room, small eating or study area where my husband set up his laptop and worked every morning. The bath was big and marble and had a great jacuzzi tub in it. You stepped down three steps from this level into the seating and bed area. A big kingsize bed with a really comfortable mattress and then two sets of double french doors opening onto a big balcony which overlooks the beach with palm trees. The room had high end luxury appointments throughout, drapery, bedding and art. The only drawback to this room is the view is partially obstructed by the roof of the the Duval Beach Club right in front of it. I know you are thinking" Beach club right in front, oh oh". The Beach club is a beach side restaurant and bar and it closes at 10 pm so it is convenient and not noisy. Included with our room was a very nice breakfast and a lovely afternoon tea. This was all set in beautiful gardens which made the place look like Eden. All the service people associated with the hotel were most gracious and helpful as well. It made for a wonderful time and for considerably less money than the Marquessa Hotel. We will be back to Dewey House. If you go, ask for a second floor room at the Dewey or at the sister small hotel, Le Mer right next door and request a room that faces the beach directly although even the rooms not directly facing the beach seem to have balconies that do give you an ocean view.
