The Equator Resort Key West offers a complimentary Happy Hour every evening, with Petits Debuts in the morning. This offers a small pre-breakfast jump start with options of stuffed croissants, pastries and bagels made locally fresh and delivered daily. For someone who’s looking for comfort at all times, this is the place to turn to. No hotel, however, can remain the same. As such, the attitude of the Equator Resort Key West team has been to build rejuvenation in the very fabric of their approach. “Change is a Constant is kind of our philosophy,” Anthony explains. “We strive to constantly work on upgrades and renovations so that each visit – as we have a lot of repeat clientele – there is always something new.” Something new doesn’t have to revolutionize the hotel experience, but it always improves it. This year, for example, the Wi-Fi system has shifted from login and password to an automatic system using NFC. These simple touches are only reached through determined hard work and a desire to deliver even better quality of service every single time. Now that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic has passed, it’s clear that more and more people are turning up at the Equator Resort Key West to embrace a world of fun and comfort. A whole new region of customers have turned up from the America’s West Coast, keen to discover what sets this incredible resort apart from the rest of the crowd. They, too, have found a place which is a home away from home. Whilst most hotels go through a slow season with few visitors, the Equator Resort Key West has very much become the place to be for those who are in the know. There is very little that is perfect, but there are very few that get as close as the team at the Equator Resort Key West. Their peerless attitude to success, constantly pushing the boundaries of what is on offer, has enticed more people through their doors than ever before. Those who visit this stunning establishment find a locale that is warm and friendly, private but never stuffy. It’s a credit to the team that so many return year after year after year. It’s a bigger mark of their success, however, that there are always new people wanting to uncover what makes this such a special place. We hope we’ve captured a little of that here.
