Looking to go to Key West for a short time (can't stay long due to work constraints etc.).

We'd ideally go to Miami with the inlwas who will watch our baby while we spend time in KW.

If we go for 2 days, what are the must see attractions? We're not so into watersports/adventures, rather nice sites, historical attractions sunset by the beach, etc.

We also have tons of Hilton, Hyatt, and chase UR points. What is the nicest hotel to stay in? Ocean view room is a must.

TIA!

For history check out the Hemingway Museum, Truman Little White House, and the fort at Dry Tortugas NP.

For Hilton check out The Reach & The Casa Marina Hotels. Casa Marina is a Waldorf property but reviews are very mixed. Most people don't consider it up to Waldorf standards generally speaking. They bpth have Ocean views.

For Hyatt, there's the Hyatt Centric & The Hyatt Residence clubs. I stayed in a Residence Club and loved it (Beach House). It's a 2 bedroom apartment with a full Kithen Dining room etc. It's a timeshare property and all rooms are the same. No Ocean view rooms though because of the way the rooms are situated. Centric has ocean view and location is downtown near all of the action.

There's no real good beaches in Key west, not known for that, but I really liked Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park. Really cool and beautiful. (Can watch sunset from there if Mallory square ain't your jam. That's where everyone goes for sunset)

casa marina has the only cleanish beach actually pretty good. if u choose a newer room/pay extra u will love it. also don't forget there are a lot of IHG Kimpton options now.
