An intimate stay at a relaxing boutique hotel that promises an authentic Key West experience

Traveling to Florida? Let The Gates Hotel Key West double as your gate to the Keys. This brand-new lifestyle getaway is passionate about acquainting you with your sunny surroundings, whether by putting you up in a beach-themed room, promising laid-back island vibes aplenty, or hosting concerts by local musicians. This Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Award 2017 winner even boasts a Cuban-cigar lounge and garden.

But the best way to get up close and personal with local culture is to venture out. Take a bike and head a few miles east, to where the waves lap against Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, the six-toed cats roam around Hemingway House, the sun sets over Mallory Square, and the best Key lime pie is served. In fact, you can rent a Martone Cycling Co. cruiser directly from the hotel. And when your day of exploring is over, relax with a craft cocktail featuring a private-label selection of rum distilled by the hotel's local partner, Key West First Legal Rum Distillery.
