When in Rome, do as the Romans do, and if it works, do the same elsewhere. You could say that’s the driving principle behind The Escalante, the only boutique hotel in Naples’ Downtown Historic District, which takes as its inspiration the Mediterranean region. Around this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning villa, you’ll discover patios, verandas, pergolas and brick and tile pool mosaics. You can settle into a flowering courtyard, or sit down at the restaurant, where you’ll be invited to order from a cellar with more than 300 wines.
Sipping a fresh juice on the pool deck or sunning in the Jacuzzi, you may think to yourself, “This is the life,” but you may also wonder what lies beyond the villa’s limits. You’ll be equally pleased to find that a Mediterranean ease prevails here, as well – but that’s about where the similarities end. The main attractions in the Gulf City are its pelican-dotted fishing pier, palm-lined beach and ramshackle waterfront shopping center, so follow the crowds of locals here to shop for art and tropical jewelry, with views of the dolphins and pelicans. When in Naples…
Good to know
Please note that a resort fee of 13.5% per room, per night is payable directly to the hotel and includes breakfast, private parking, local phone calls, daily newspaper, Wi-Fi and beach service that includes towels, chairs, umbrellas and a golf-cart shuttle to the beach.
The Escalante’s 550-square-foot One Bedroom Lanai suites are cool, comfortable retreats, with mahogany furniture and European detailing. You’ll have for your comfort a generous armoire and a king bed in shades of cream, but the crowning touch is your very own lanai that opens to the pool courtyard.
Veranda E is an Asian-French fusion restaurant, using ingredients sourced from The Escalante’s own organic garden. Six days a week bring lunch and a happy hour under the pergola, while dinner is served seven days under the canopy or the stars. If you’re in the mood for some romance, the hotel can also arrange for you to enjoy a lunch at the beach or a private open-air dinner.
The Escalante is in Old Naples, a charming village of banyans and traditional Spanish-style mansions and cottages that’s right next to a beach. Bike the promenades, splash in the Gulf waters or just stroll around at your leisure, stopping to watch the fishermen on the pier or the ramshackle Tin City waterfront shopping center.
How to Get There
Chic mediterranean style boutique hotel on 5th avenue next to all the shops and restaurants. Spacious room very clean. Breakfast was very good and served with a smile. Lovely Michael took us to the beach every day and made us laugh. Michaels mum looked after us very well. Can’t reccomend this hotel enough. If i am ever in Naples in the future this is where i will stay.
We can’t say enough great things about the hotel or the amazing staff! We spent two nights this past weekend. Loved this small intimate boutique hotel. Great location, just a few blocks from the beach, where they set you up with chairs, umbrellas and towels. Its a gem of a place.
When we visit Naples we love to stay at the Escalante! This is one of our favorite boutique hotels! Service is wonderful from the manager to the busboy at the restaurant! We love it here and will come back again in the future!
I strongly recommend Escalante Hotel: it’s an unforgettable experience. Something between a family-run hotel and boutique. Warm staff, upscale service, perfect gardening, extremely good beach service.
We've been coming to the Escalante for years and will always keep coming back! The staff is exceptional especially Maria and Mikey. The food is always fabulous even for Naples standards! It's the perfect romantic getaway if you live here in town or around the world. The bamboo suite was charming with the garden right outside our room!
