Since opening in 2015, The Gates Hotel Key West aims to provide a timely take on Key West's quirky charm. If you’re looking for a cookie-cutter hotel experience, this is not for you.
The low-rise hotel has a castaway beach chic look with planked accent walls and floors the color of driftwood. Minimalist furnishings keep the focus on the over-sized framed photographs of beach views taken by a local photographer.
Pine-planked platform beds with burlap throws and white exposed beam ceilings could almost fool you into thinking you’re in a remote beachside hut, but the complimentary Wi-Fi, loaner iPads and in-room Keurig coffemakers keep you grounded in the present day.
The pool area is lushly landscaped, and food service comes exclusively by way of the hotel’s food truck, in a nod to the current craze for all things served from a vehicle. Other unique touches are the rums custom-blended for the hotel -- served at the poolside Rum Row bar -- and the on-site cigar bar featuring products from Key West’s oldest cigar manufacturer. Try your hand at rolling your own during a lesson.
If the smoking and drinking has you longing for more activity, hop on one of the hotel’s loaner bikes and cruise 30 minutes into the heart of downtown to check out bustling Duval Street or the famous sunset at Mallory Square. With a fiery background on display, jugglers, street performers, musicians and more turn dusk into a nightly party, kicking off Key West's famed evening revelry.
