Casa Marina Resort & Beach Club, Waldorf Astoria

Key West, Florida Keys

The hotel

Opened New Year's Eve 1920, Casa Marina Resort is Key West’s original grand resort! After a $45 million dollar renovation, Casa Marina became part of the Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts. Boasting a dramatic 'water walk' that leads to the resort's two largest swimming pools and the largest private beach in Key West, Casa Marina Resort is a tranquil oasis close enough to the action of Duval Street. Offered on-site is a booking centre for world-class diving, fishing and boating. Casa Marina also has the largest fitness facility in Key West, allowing you to work off those holiday indulgences! Guest rooms at Casa Marina Resort are contemporary in style with whitewashed walls, textured tile floors and dark tropical hardwoods — a great place to retire to at the end of a busy day seeing the sights. For dining the hotel’s Sun Sun restaurant and bar, an open-air wood pavilion overlooking the pools and beach, great for those seeking a casual atmosphere and plenty of that Floridian sun!! And as if all this wasn't enough, you can take advantage of the facilities at the sister property, The Reach, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, one block away.

This place is in a great location right on the beach, but the rooms themselves need to be renovated. They are old and dated and not in the best condition. You would never know this is a Waldorf Astoria hotel. The pool and beach bar provides a great atmosphere though.

We came with a large group and had three catered events. I would like to recognize the staff especially the servers who were extremely professional and made sure every was perfect. The food was delicious so thank you to Liz the culinary supervisor. We were all very impressed and had the most amazing time.

The resort is nice. The Beach has lots of sea grass. My family enjoyed the family pool and movie night outside. Staff is nice but only know and stick to their own job. If you want water ask the water guy and if you want coffee call the coffee guy. They should cross train the employees so they can all support each other and provide an over all better experience. Great location. The Trolley stops at this hotel. Know that you will need to pay for parking if you drive and it's not cheap. I did enjoy the Keys so I didn't sweat the small stuff. Read less

This is a Hilton that needs a ton of updating, it is not a Waldorf Astoria by any stretch. You will be disappointed at almost every turn. The doormen, valets and beach service staff are pleasant and professional, but nearly all others are miserable and unaccommodating. In all fairness, I'm guessing they're over-worked and under rewarded. So much… Read more

Pictures say it all, I need not say one word. The experience started with the valet guy telling me how to get my own luggage cart. Then we get to the room and it looked like a crime scene.

Pictures say it all, I need not say one word. The experience started with the valet guy telling me how to get my own luggage cart. Then we get to the room and it looked like a crime scene. Stains on the sofa the floor was grimy. Broken glass on the carpet and tile. The tile floor was sticky and slippery depending on where you walked. There was grim all over the furniture, stains and just gross smells. I have traveled all over the world and historic hotels like the Royal Hawaiian or the Conrad and spent between 400-600$ a night. This hotel was almost 1200$ and IMO not even as clean as a spring hill suites I stayed in Orlando. That room was 120$ per night. I am completely blown away when my wife and I decided to contact the management she wouldn’t even come to the room to whiteness our disgust. She just told us she would issue a refund and we could go to another establishment. Well that is exactly what we did. And if Paris Hilton and her family think this is acceptable the gravy train will soon stop. I truly hope the Waldorf property emails me at dbdesigns@cox.net so I can show them photos m. And when I tell you the management said it’s a historic hotel you have to be understanding. I responded the Conrad is way older and kept impeccably. So is the Royal Hawaiian. She has nothing to say. Seriously if you want to go to the keys go to a different resort. This is like lipstick on a pig. If I was a health inspector they would be closed. Read less
