Meisel Holdings has ushered in a new era of upscale hospitality in Key West, Florida with the opening of H2O Suites. Expressly designed for adults only, the ultra-luxe hotel features 22 one-bedroom suites with private outdoor space, modern amenities and services, and an enviable location just one block from Duval Street and steps from the area’s celebrated beaches and ocean excursions.
The first hotel of this caliber in Key West, H2O Suites redefines contemporary service and style, delivering an unmistakable new lodging paradigm to this worldwide destination. The concept was born out of the growing demand for a modern boutique hotel experience that caters to discerning adult travelers.
“At our Santa Maria Suites hotel which offers two-bedroom suites, we were regularly seeing couples traveling without children who desired a one-bedroom layout and a private and more romantic setting,” said Marc L. Meisel, CEO of Meisel Holdings in referring to another of the company’s Key West hotels which was named #17 in the country by Trip Advisor. “H20 Suites is the answer to that demand, offering a tranquil retreat infused with high quality and service that’s in proximity to the energy and excitement of Old Town Key West.”
Designed with modern décor and high-style furnishings, H2O’s 22 suites feature a private balcony or patio to enjoy tropical courtyard views and gentle sea breezes, individual plunge pools with 11 of the suites, a living area with a plush sofa and wet bar to relax and unwind, a spa-inspired bath with Italian marble and glass rainfall shower to help revive your senses, a luxurious king-size bed and two flat screen TV’s.
The hotel’s relaxing vibe extends to the stunning rooftop deck where panoramic vistas of Old Town Key West, a refreshing pool, comfortable lounges, tropical libations from the Roof Top bar and poolside tapas enhance the quiet, island life ambiance. For those looking to recharge with a wellness experience in paradise, a fitness center features state-of-the-art cardio equipment, free weights, and resistance and fitness training equipment.
Designed by HBA Design, H2O was envisioned as a unique boutique hotel new to the Key West community. Guest suites all open onto a central courtyard that is landscaped with lush mature trees and a central reflecting pool anchored on one end by basalt columns bubbling with water and the other with a ring of fire. The geometric lines and masses of this central water feature contrast with the softness of the landscape. The 22 exclusive guest suites are decorated in a crisp cool color scheme that was inspired by the pale blue waters of the Keys translated into tones of silver, gray, and blue and white. One can’t forget an accent of local flavor – the ever present rooster of Key West. Each room has a hand painted pillow of the colorful fowl.
Complimentary Champagne with Chambord upon first arrival, daily Mimosas and Bloody Marys at the Roof Top Pool, and red and white wine selections with assorted tapas help set the relaxing, resort-inspired mood at the hotel, while H2O’s 24-hour Concierge embodies the hotel’s commitment to impeccable service. From making reservations at the island’s hottest cuisine destinations to booking fishing, sailing or diving adventures to recommending secret hideaways only the locals know about, H20’s Concierge will help guests make incredible memories of their island getaway.
When adventure does call, guests at H20 Suites are within walking distance of the island’s white sand beaches, historic landmarks and legendary nightlife. Dining favorites offering up hand-rolled sushi to casual al fresco meals to seafood specialties await, while live music, a Key West hallmark, can be found at numerous venues.
When the night ends, guests can retreat back to the sanctuary of their luxurious H2O suite, where nightly turndown service includes frozen Dove ice cream bars, locally fresh baked muffins and Ghirardelli chocolates.
