“See you at Sunset" has a special significance in Key West. It's an invitation to join in the celebration of watching another perfect sunset while jugglers, island musicians, artists, food vendors and friends entertain you each night as if you were a one person audience.
Many noted figures have enjoyed the sunset view from Mallory Square over the years. The congregation of street performers has grown significantly over the years, now extending to the Westin pier. Audubon wrote glowingly of the glorious Key West sunsets while visiting the island in the early 1800's. Legend has it that famous American Playwright Tennessee Williams initiated the ritual of applauding the sunset at Mallory Square.
So do not miss the sunset on the Westin pier located directly behind the Westin main building along the waterfront. Enjoy one of our famous mojitos, have dinner on the waterfront during sunset at Bistro 245 or stroll along the vibrant harbor walk where you will discover some of the island’s best shopping right outside your room door.
