Key Lime Pie Turn-Down Service at The Marker Key West Harbor Resort
In honor of National Key Lime Pie Day, on September 26, The Marker Key West Harbor Resort is kicking off a new Key Lime turndown service, celebrating Key West’s favorite fruit. As guests return from their day exploring the beautiful Key West Seaport, an array of Key Lime amenities will be arranged at their bedside. This new turn down service, available upon request, will launch on National Key Lime Pie Day, including:
- A slice of not too sweet, not too tart, slice of key lime pie with the perfect crust to filling ratio.
- A bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, which offers tasting notes of grapes paired with citrus aroma of Florida Key Limes and a dash of coconut.
- Key Lime Flavored bath and shower amenities by Key West Aloe, which recently celebrated 50 years.
- Key Lime-flavored mints.
On July 1, 2006 both the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate passed legislation selecting the “Key lime pie” as the official pie of the state of Florida. It is highly likely that the first Key lime pie was created by “Aunt Sally,” the cook of a ship salvager and Key West’s first millionaire. Many of the men aboard his ships would have had access to the basic and non-perishable ingredients required for the early recipe: canned milk, limes and eggs. Today Key Lime Pie is one of the most beloved dishes in The Sunshine State and the perfect bedtime amenity for guests at The Marker Key West Harbor Resort
