While we were in Key West, we stayed at The Perry Key West, and it was AMAZING! We’ve been to Key West multiple times before, but staying at The Perry made our visit to this tiny island even better. This hotel is like nothing else we’ve ever experienced. With two huge pools, three restaurants, two dog parks, 288 boat slip marina, and even a distillery that makes their own rum, vodka, and whiskey, you’ll definitely never get bored here!
Our room had absolutely everything we could have ever needed. We stayed in the Stock Island King room which has a view of the main pool on property and the marina! We loved opening the sliding glass doors every morning to watch the sunrise from our balcony. The huge king bed was insanely comfortable and the walk-in shower that was in our bathroom was beautiful! The room even came with a complimentary bottle of champagne!
By far our favorite thing about the hotel was the MASSIVE pool. It is situated right on the waterfront, so you have incredible views of the marina and the huge boats that occupy it while relaxing on their 50+ white lounge chairs. They have a bar located right next to the pool, called the Salty Oyster, that serves delicious drinks, appetizers, and sandwiches. It was very hard for us to leave the pool!
The hotel is doing an incredible job of creating a safe environment for you to escape during this time. All of the staff members are wearing masks, and all of the guests to the hotel are also required to wear masks when walking around the hotel property. There’s hand sanitizer stations all throughout the hotel, all of the chairs at the pool and tables at the restaurant are 6 feet apart, and their housekeeping crew is constantly cleaning and sanitizing everything. We felt extremely safe the entire time we were there.
If you end up staying at The Perry, you MUST eat at their main on-site restaurant, Matt’s Stock Island. The food was absolutely incredible. They serve an amazing breakfast spread (try the Banana Bread Pancakes!), but our favorite was our dinner experience. We got the Shrimp & Grits and the Grouper Gnudi. It was TO DIE FOR. Their cocktails are also incredible. We highly recommend you eat here at least once during your stay. The restaurant also welcomes guests who don’t have reservations at the hotel!
The hotel is not actually located on the island of Key West, but on a small island right next to Key West called Stock Island. They offer a complimentary shuttle service every hour to the downtown area of Key West which takes less than 10 minutes to get there. The hotel also has onsite scooter and bike rentals.
Another main selling point of this hotel is the water activities that they offer. Since they are located right on the marina, they have partnered with multiple private boat charters that can take you snorkeling and diving, fishing, sandbar hopping, and even sailing. Just go to their onsite concierge and they are happy to plan any of these exciting activities for you.
They also have a huge event space that is perfect for weddings and any other parties available for rent. We were also told that they will start having concerts on their lawn once it is safe to do so!
Our stay at The Perry Key West was absolutely perfect. This hotel is the best place to stay in Key West if you’re looking for a relaxing getaway. The customer service, rooms, food, and hotel amenities were all top notch. We seriously can’t recommend this hotel enough!
