This is an absolutely beautiful place to stay; condos are wonderful!! The location is in the heart of Key West, so convenient. You are a block from Duval. However, you do not even know it. Very quiet, relaxing. Highly recommend it.

LOVE the bright royal panciana tree right outside the humungous balcony of this room. LOVED the pools and tiki bar (wish the tiki was open later than 5pm). Prime location - walked to everything. Lush gardens made it seem like we were off the beaten path, when in fact we were RIGHT THERE in the heart of it all.

You're right... 303 is awesome ~ but as you mention it is up stairs. Since every suite at the Banyan has its unique charm and character, be sure to consider other options if the stairs aren't an option. Our staff is standing by to assist you in finding the perfect suite to suit you while helping plan the vacation experience...

Lush greenery and flowers abound. Friendly staff. Super-clean accomodations. The resort is made up of original Key West homes built in the 1800s!! No need for a car - your feet are your transportation. Two blocks to Duval and all its action, good eats and entertainment. Continue trekking and end up in FABULOUS Mallory Square to watch the sunset...eat...visit the...

My wife and I booked a five night stay the Banyan Resort for our Anniversary. We couldn’t have had a better time and a lot of that was because we stayed at the Banyan Resort! I’m not sure you can beat the location and price in Key West. We stayed in room 508, which is a loft on the backside...

This is truly a great place. Lovely setting, nice people, good rooms. Two pools is nice and a hot tub that is actually hot. Free coffee in the morning. Great parking without any hassles. Location is right in the action but far enough away to be quiet. Not cheap but what is there? We will do it again.

It is the best place to stay in Key West to be near all of the activities and action in 'old town.'

This is our second year renting at The Banyan for the Songwriter Festival. It can't be beat for convenience, we can walk to the events and stop home to relax in between. The unit was comfortable, we had a nice private balcony overlooking the pool, and the grounds are lovely. No complaints at all!

I have been staying at the Banyan for a number of years and have always been pleased. If you're looking for a modern hotel setting, the Banyan isn't for you as the property consists of old antique Key West homes which have been converted into comfortable efficiency style units. Its location on Whitehead St is within walking distance of anything...
