To get things rolling for August in Key West, local businesses are now offering extra low off-peak rates on rooms.
Online PR News – 06-August-2010 – – Starting today, the beginning of lobster season, local Key West accommodations will begin offering extra low off-peak rates on rooms throughout the city. August and September are traditionally the slowest months of the tourism year in the Southernmost City, and rates on everything from the typical Key West Bed and Breakfast to dolphin tours will come down accordingly. As prices fall a notch during summer's hottest months, bargain hunters can book a Key West Vacation and save a bundle.
The heat won't bother folks who like the water, so extra low rates in August are a welcome bonus for traveling on a budget. Families especially will appreciate the discounts on their favorite Key West inn, hotel, or resort. And since school's out, the discounts on rooms couldn't come at a better time. The off peak discounts are geared at families from mainland Florida, who drive to Key West with their children while school is not in session. These visitors are more willing and likely than folks from northern states to visit Key West during hurricane season and during summer. That's because the weather up north is pretty good during summer, and also because flying to Key West involves more risk when it comes to hurricanes fouling travel plans.
Most popular are the Key West FL Hotels located at the western end of the island. The face west and some overlook Mallory Square, and are close to everything. That includes charter fishing, tours, rentals, and of course Duval Street. Duval Street is home to some of Key West's best restaurants, galleries, and shopping. At night, it's the center of nightlife. This month's off-season hotel rates are the perfect excuse to see how the other half lives, and stay at one of the best resorts downtown. Central location is everything and local hotels hope visitors who stay in their rooms when the off season rates are available will enjoy the experience so much they'll come back again for another stay.
"We want everyone to enjoy themselves in Key West " says Barry Pendleman, concierge at a resort in Key West. "We roll out the red carpet every day of the year, even during the off season when rates are lower", he says with a genuine smile. He added that he doesn't know or care how much of a discount guests at his resort have received. His motivation is the smiles he sees when people have a good time in his city and he's been a part of that.
For off season discounts on hotel, resort, inn, and Bed and Breakfast rates in Key West during August, it's essential to book online and ahead of time. Hotel managers are happy to offer lower rates during summer, but cannot guarantee availability or low rates for walk-ins customers. Even though it's the off season in Key West, things keep humming in the Southernmost City, where there's a festival almost every week.
