Want your next Key West escape to put you near the sea? They don’t come much closer than boutique hotel The Perry Hotel Key West, which is right beside a bustling marina that feeds into State Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. Your Stock Island stay will likely revolve around nautical activities, from kayaking to snorkeling to fishing (although swimming in the pool, among lush palm trees, isn’t a bad alternative). The “Perry” in the name is a reference to Commodore Perry, and you’ll certainly feel compelled to channel this father of the American navy and set out exploring the surrounding waters.
Stock Island happens to be one of the hottest neighborhoods around, having been called “the new old Key West” by The New York Times and received a cool half billion for renovations in the past decade and a half – so fit in some time to explore the land side of the hotel, too. Bars and restaurants abound here and towards Duval Street, as do shops and other hangouts, many of which you can access on the Old Town shuttle. But it would be a mistake not to start with what’s right in front of you: two eateries, dishing up American comfort food and oysters, respectively, plus fire pits, a well-equipped fitness center, a community garden, two dog parks and a gift shop stocked with artisanal goods.
Rooms and studios
The 100 guest abodes come with water views and oversized private balconies or patios, plus the necessities, like a Keurig coffeemaker and mini-fridge. Mangrove Double Queen rooms feature an outdoor shower and a view of the lagoon, while Stock Island King rooms offer views of the pool and marina. Saltwater studios look out over the pool and marina or the lagoon; they also include a roomy shower and pull-out sofa bed. These rooms all contain a king bed.
Matt’s Stock Island Kitchen & Bar is an airy dining space with a retro-meets-modern feel and menu of American coastal comfort food, whipped up under the supervision of avid fisherman and Executive Chef Ryan Fredstrom (of Miami’s critically acclaimed Yardbird). Nibble on banana-cream “jarfaits,” Key West pink shrimp with vodka cocktail sauce, black-bean fritters and fried clams. Salty Oyster Dockside Bar & Grill is an al-fresco spot, serving po’ boys, burgers and the namesake shellfish to the poolside, your deck, the bar or the fire pits.
Key West is famous for its sunny weather and quirky characters. A Floridian getaway with a strong Caribbean and Cuban flair, it’s known for brilliant sunsets (best appreciated from gathering-spot Mallory Square), pristine and palm-lined sands and six-toed cats. Hemingway spent eight years living here, and you can tour his landmark French Colonial-style home, or get your picture taken at the southernmost point in the continental United States. You’ll be on the edge of Stock Island, by the marina – ideal for kayaking, sailing, diving and fishing outings.
How to Get There
My second time in 2 months. An amazing property! Clean, well maintained and the friendliest service this far south! I have been coming to Key West for 20 years and I have never stayed in the same location more than once as they have never left me with an experience that I would want to share with others. This time we brought my 80+ year old mom and Aunt, our 2 toddler girls, our Yellow Lab Stella and our Friends with their 7yr old and 12 year old. We ALL enjoyed our stay!
Jayme at the front door is also such a great asset. WE met on my original stay at The Perry Hotel and he was there to greet me upon arrival (and remembered my name too) when we arrived this trip. Met Kyle who is just as great and of course Tom at the pool who helped service anything we needed. It's nice to have a staff that makes an impression and makes you feel welcome. The food at all of the outlets is also fantastic! I met locals who were celebrating their Anniversary and agreed with me that the Red Pants Collection truly is a great group with fantastic Culinary experiences in their portfolio of restaurants, Keep it up The Perry Hotel Key West! We hope you will always have a room available for us in the future.
Newish quality hotel tucked away on the harbour... rooms are beautiful and thoughtfully furnished. Pool area was lovely. We stayed in 205 and overlooked the harbour and was a delight to chill and watch the world go by... recommend!
Stayed in this hotel in a spacious king room overlooking the marina. It was the week between the end of the summer tourist season and start of lobster hunting so I got the room for a song. The prices for this hotel, depending on when and what you get, are in the higher range but it's a wonderful stay. Built just over a year ago, everything is new and clean. Friendly bartenders and wait staff, comfortable accommodations, spectacular marina and bay views, and two restaurant bars (this is one word in Key West) rounded out a wonderful stay. Dog-friendly but you have to pay a $125 non-refundable deposit, which again I thought was a bit on the high end.
