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
Did not have much expectations really. I guess thats the best way to approach things.
The hotel is small, stylish and fun to be in.
Ice comfy rooms. Its an ideal location. Not to close to key wests down town arra that you can chill. Not too far that you cant head up there and party.
It was a good week end.
Thanks guys! Alex, Mark Rhoda! ✌🏼
This is the best hotel I have ever been to so far! Everything is amazing! The food, the interiors, the staff, enviorment, location, everything is perfect!
I have been to many hotels in Florida, but this is by far the best of them!
I never want to leave this hotel..
My husband and I have been to KW several times. This time we discovered the Perry. The hotel is as beautiful in person as it looks on the web.
The food at Matt’s Stock Island Kitchen is incredible! The restaurant staff is amazing, especially Deborah, Amine and Nate. Everyone is so helpful and accomodating.
The rooms are lovely and very clean. In fact the whole hotel is clean and smells clean and fresh. The bed is comfortable.
The pool is huge and awesome!
I have no serious negatives about this hotel.
We will definitely stay here again. The Perry is great and Stock Island is so much fun - only a stones throw from KW.
We celebrated our honeymoon here and were extremely happy with everything. The room overlooked the harbor with a great sunrise in the morning. The customer service is great and very helpful. The restaurant in the hotel had great food and service.
There is a free shuttle to Key West center each hour which was very helpful. Evening hours were slightly limited. After dinner we had to get a taxi back.
Located on Stock Island, adjacent to Key West, this practically brand new hotel is a contemporary industrial designed treasure! The amazing pool and two restaurants front on the Stock Island Marina, a great place to relax after a day in Key West. The hotel offers internet, parking and a shuttle to Key West hourly all day and evening, eliminating that costly and challenging issue! The hotel is immaculate, the staff is very accommodating, the location is great. Every convenience is top notch from the KeyWest Aloe products in the bath, the amazing well stocked mini bar, the Keurig coffee maker and strong internet reception. The Perry Hotel is a complete delight!
