The person at the front desk was very friendly and informative, the room was amazing, beautifully done and quiet, could not hear neighbors at all. Within walking distance to Duval St. Nice continental breakfast. My only complaint would be price, but we went in high season and it was in line with other hotel prices.

Walked past this hotel many times on previous trips finally called early enough to get a room on a holiday week. Rooms very nice and spotless. If I return I would request a n upstairs poolside room. Great heated pool (necessary in February). Breakfast poolside included. two blocks to Duval street, about 1/2 mile to Mallory Square.

There are so many charming places in town, but the Truman lacks a real Key West feel. It feels overcrowded, the complimentary breakfast is sad with guests struggling for a place to sit and eat. The rooms are new, but those in the ground floor lack intimacy, light and ventilation. The parking lot is always full. Just inconvenient, a no...

Wow! What a nice, clean hotel. We came for the weekend and found this good value on line, We would recommend it to any one. Newly rennovated and peaceful. Contemporary Asian design is a nice relief to the Key West craziness. Nice linens, good service, small intimate pool area and continental fan are also included.

Wife and I stayed here Jan. '13. The rooms are clean, modern, well maintained & amply sized. But, all of that's to be expected for $218/night. What we came to appreciate as unexpected values were the following: Bathroom Showers - far above average Heated Pool was quite warm and large for a <40 room hotel with massage jets & fountains....

Everything about this hotel is nearly perfect, the posh atmosphere, beautiful scenery and even the wonderful attentive staff. Even the fruit punch they offer during the day makes a great mixer for drinks. But there are a few things that need improvement. First, the gate around the pool, anyone can walk right in. They need to have it so you...

Please if you see suspicious people wherever you stay, report them to the front desk. Not all properties can be secured in the manner suggested however we do have someone on the property 24 hours which is not the case in many of the smaller properties. A call to the front desk would help. We offer a small breakfast because...

Have nothing but good to say about this hotel. Stayed two nights and it exceeded our expectations! Has its own free parking and free wifi. Well equipped rooms, lovely staff and a good complimentary continental breakfast by the pool.

If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet, yet sophisticated setting at a moderate price in Key West, please consider staying here.The Truman Hotel is only two blocks from Duval Street, but in many respects it feels miles away. Smallish but not tiny rooms are well-appointed, clean, and with a bit of style - not cookie-cutter by any means. Many...

I chose the Truman from reviews on this page and hoped that all the great things previous travellers had said were in fact true, and I was not disappointed. The room was amazing, large, modern, super clean and well appointed. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. On top of this they have free parking, wifi and free bottled...

Location was very good , 2 blocks from main avenues. Front desk was not "wow" as a 1st impression but when we cross the big door to go to our room things got better. I loved the pool and pool area, decorated with good taste. Continental Breakfast included served at the pool. Our room was nice and clean. No complaints...
