Key West: Check Out The Gates, the First Boutique Hotel to Open in Key West’s Old Town

By Janice Tober

The furniture’s arriving, paint is setting and staff is training: preparations are well underway to herald the opening of the 245-room boutique property, The Gates, in Key West’s Old Town.

Scheduled to open in April, the property is aiming to be the sophisticated design hotel that hasn’t been seen in these parts before. It will combine “refined luxury, modern design, organic touches, and Floridian flare to recreate the verve of Hemingway’s ‘old school Key West.’ ” What that means, in less marketing speak, is that you should expect lots of white and grey, whitewashed wood, blue sky- and ocean-colored accents, and some contrasting modern design touches just to make it interesting.
