Grand Guest House - 1116 Grinnell St.; Key West, FL 33040;(305) 294-0590;(888) 947-2630 - Located in the heart of the island's Old Town, this hostelry has been voted the "best bargain in Key West" by Frommer's Budget Travel Magazine.
Also in Old San Juan is the El Convento Hotel, a unique Spanish Colonial bulding that was once a convent and is now an upscale hostelry with a traditional Spanish center courtyard.
It is first mentioned in 1322, was bought with the adjacent hostelry in 1405 by the city and rearranged as a town hall, and has since, from time to time, been enlarged by the purchase of adjoining patrician houses, forming a complex of buildings of various styles and dates surmounted by a clock tower.
Three large rooms were assigned to them in the monastery hostelry, one of which was occupied by Prince Andrew.
The Palace, an enormous structure covering a city block (it had 1200 rooms and cost more than $3,000,000), known as the oldest and most famous hostelry of the city, and architecturally interesting, was completely destroyed by the fire, but has been replaced by a new building.
