My family has always enjoyed staying at Key Largo Sheraton which is now a Hilton. Nice bay side beach. Fishing close by in Islamorada. www.keylargoresort.com

Gorgeous hotel, I too stated there about 4 years ago and was beautiful. Again, I am vouching for it when it was a Sheraton, but the location and landscape was very nice.

First you need to decide which area of the Keys you want to visit. The upper Keys is the Key Largo area and I guess you can include Islamorada too. Islamorada is totally different than Key Largo though. The middle Keys includes Marathon, Key Colony Beach, etc. The lower Keys is from Big Pine to Key West.
If it were my first time to the Keys I would probably stay in Islamorada. Great fishing, restaurants, shops, hotels and it is close enough to day trip to Key West. I like the Caribbean Resort (http://www.thecaribbeanresort.com/) and Breezy Palms (http://www.breezypalms.com/) in Islamorada.
Check out this site:

It may help you decide which area to stay.

If you snorkel, or even if you don't , try the day trip to the Dry Totugas. From Key West. Neat Place.

We rented a house last time we went but did see the Sheraton and it was nice.

Plenty of guides to fish with in Keys, check our the FL section here on THT or go to the Florida Sportsman web site and check on the section on Keys. Lot of great guys there that are willing to help
and they are used to all the questions

Next August, yah you have plenty of time to lock into renting of a house. Me personally I have always favored renting of a house then doing the Hotel thing. The house thing always makes me feel like a live there, whereas the hotel thing tells me I am but a guest.

Renting a house can actually be cheaper than a hotel.
