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
Wow, I've been traveling to KW for over 30 years and what a surprise to find this gem of a hotel on Stock Island. The new marina next door is the reason I chose to stay at the Perry. I was blown away by the level of sophistication and the original Art in the public spaces. The staff was most helpful and all were always smiling. I'll be back.
Absolute amazing experience! Hotel aesthetic, design and amenities made it easy to never leave. But the customer service was by far our favorite offerings from the hotel. Zak, Heidi and Aliya, a huge thank you for such an amazing experience. You are the reason why so many guests will come back to the Perry Hotel including us.
Again, thank you all for an amazing weekend. Michelle had a great birthday and we do look forward to seeing you all again soon!
Have a great summer!
Shawn, Michelle, Cosmo and Mia
we loved!! we spend a very fun weekend there. everything was amazing, the lobby, the pool, free parking, All staff was extraordinary, two delicious restaurants and the room was the maximum we enjoyed a beautiful sunset from our terrace.
We will definitely go back
Loved everything about our stay. Great rooms. Wonderful staff. Good food. Awesome location for access to marina. We had a fantastic time hope to come back Rooms very comfortable. Design is really fun.
The rooms are fanatastic, and so is the hotel in general. The pool and restaurants are great. The only (minor) drawback is the location, which is a bit away from everything else. The price, however, makes up for any inconvenience. Would stay here again.
