I have a query where I want to get the Primary Key of the row that is the max in a group?  How do I do this?

Here is my example query.  I don't want to group on the key, but get the key of the max(rooms) in the groupby

SELECT     [Key], [Group Name], MAX(Rooms) AS MaxRoom
FROM         dbo.a_Sites
GROUP BY [Key], [Group Name]
