Kimpton Key West Collection of Five Luxe to Laid Back Hotel Charmers Complete with Opening of Ridley House

Kimpton Key West, a collection of five boutique hotels centrally located in and around Old Town and world-famous Duval Street, is set to open Ridley House on March 15, 2021 marking the official completion of the group’s unique collection that ranges from luxe to laid-back.

As the final addition to the Kimpton Key West collection, Ridley House joins Winslow’s Bungalows, Lighthouse Hotel, Ella’s Cottages and Fitch Lodge. Each of the five boutique hotels has undergone a thoughtful renovation and redesign that celebrates the eclectic style and sensibility Key West is known for, while preserving the charm and integrity of each hotel’s rich history, distinctive personality and original architecture.

Ridley House features 23 elegantly appointed and expansive guestrooms spread across three historic homes – two Victorian and one Bahamian Eyebrow. Ideal for couples and those seeking a sophisticated, yet relaxed experience, the historic property sits on the lush grounds of what was once the estate of wealthy, 19th-century industrialist Richard Kemp, a merchant and furniture dealer who is also known for launching Key West’s sponging industry.

With a prime corner location in Old Town near Duval Street, Ridley House is ideally situated for those seeking easy access to the island’s numerous water activities as well as Key West’s famous nightlife. Classic bohemian touches such as private porches, picket fences, low-hanging trees, a sparkling pool, and chic hammocks immerse guests into the serene and relaxing South Florida experience for which Key West is renowned.

“We are delighted to announce the completion of Kimpton Key West as we now welcome guests to experience Ridley House,” said Kimpton Key West General Manager, Cheryl Martin. “In addition to the exceptional, heartfelt service guests have come to expect of the Kimpton brand, the five hotels that make up this truly unique collection offer something for everyone with an array of quaint accommodations, desirable amenities and an unmistakable vibe that inspires guests to kick-back like a true Key West local.”

Guests of Kimpton Key West can start the day with complimentary coffee, tea and breakfast; hop on one of the hotel’s custom-designed loaner beach bikes (first come first serve) and explore Key West’s art galleries, quirky shops, historic sites, and restaurants, before capping off the day with a buzzy beverage at one of Kimpton Key West’s two poolside bars.

Complimentary offerings and amenities include a grown-up welcome beverage, high-speed WiFi, access to more than 7,000 newspapers and magazines on your smart device via the Press Reader app, and an in-room yoga mat and Turkish robes (available for purchase for guests who would like to take one home). Guests can also avail themselves of a snorkel kit with mask and snorkel to enjoy at the beach and throughout the island’s various snorkeling spots. Boating and pool towels are also available.

An Inspired Collection for a One-of-a-Kind Destination

Kimpton Key West represents a complete reimagining of what was once known as the Historic Inns of Key West. Spread across six blocks, no two rooms in the collection’s 219 total keys are the same. Kimpton Key West first debuted its new look and feel with the completed renovations of Winslow’s Bungalows on March 1, 2020 followed by Lighthouse Hotel on June 1, 2020.

Winslow’s Bungalows is the largest property in the Kimpton Key West collection at 85 rooms. It spans a lush, landscaped campus in the center of Key West just two blocks off Duval Street, and offers a spacious and relaxing setting complete with three private pools, an outdoor bar and vibrant gardens. Lighthouse Hotel, a historic property located adjacent to both the iconic Key West Lighthouse and the Ernest Hemingway House, features a collection of 45 guestrooms spread across several mid-19th-century buildings set amongst brick-paved gardens, a lively swimming pool and a pool-side bar.

With 44 guestrooms, Fitch Lodge, which completed its renovations on July 1, 2020, is the most value-driven of the collection, and in addition to its cozy neighborhood setting, features easy access to the Key West Ferry, charter boats, sunset sails, snorkeling adventures, deep sea fishing and more, making it ideal for couples and adventurous travelers looking to explore the crystal clear water surrounding the Florida Keys.

A peaceful oasis located in the heart of Old Town’s art district, Ella’s Cottages was unveiled on March 12, 2020 following the renovation and redesign of its 22 guest rooms, which blend cottage charm with historic character, thanks to each unit’s cozy front-porch seating, a secluded pool and an intimate communal terrace.

Ridley House, opening in March 2021, is the collection’s most elegant and closest location to the Key West Historic Seaport, Mallory Square and just a crawl away from Duval Street.

Kimpton Key West is offering savings of up to 25 percent for guests who book three nights or more with the “Stay Longer and Save” promotion currently available for booking exclusively on the collection’s website.
