You might feel like you’ve grown fins after a stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites in Marathon. Midway down the famous Florida Keys archipelago, the hotel is perfectly placed to enjoy all of the aquatic activities the area is known for. The property is located right on the water, with its own beach and marina giving guests a long menu of activities to choose from.
Stock up on sunscreen and spend the day snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking or Jet Skiing. There’s no rule against trying a little of everything if the spirit moves you. Or just spend the day lounging at the pool and taking in views of the sky, scrub and miles of turquoise water.
Those who’ve come for Marathon’s well-known bounty of the sea can choose from full- or half-day charters to try and catch the Big One. Non-fishers can head out on the hotel’s catamaran for a two-hour sunset cruise and sip sparkling wine while watching the kaleidoscope of colors ebb into darkness.
You don’t have to leave the property if you’re wiped out after a day in, on and around the water. The hotel serves free breakfast, and the on-site Tarpon Creek Bar and Grill offers waterfront dining in a tiki bar atmosphere with an emphasis on the local catches of the day. Guest rooms are decorated in typical corporate style with earth tones, wall-to-wall carpeting and dark wood furniture.
