The Westin s great and if you book a suite there for the races they may upgrade you to Sunset Key when you get there. That is what happened to us last year and Sunset Key was one fine establishment. We had a blast, plus, their private dock on the island is no more than 100' from the race course. it was well worth it.

I always stay at the Galleon. Easy access to Duval and the Poker Run docks. Most rooms are two bed, two bath with full kitchen, washer/dryer...it makes sense for me to have those amenities since I usually spend 1 1/2 to 2 weeks down there. 1 week to party, 1 week to recover!!

For couples I highly recommend the Duval House. It is on the 800 block of Duval Street, only a couple blocks from all the action but quiet once you are there. It is made up of 6 or 7 houses / buildings that surround a courtyard and it has a pool. You feel like you are staying at a small resort and we basically had the pool to ourselves. No kids under 16.
