Updated: Jan 10, 2021
The Marker Key West Harbor Resort is proud to unveil a $3 million renovation of the modern, waterfront property, including its new Residence One & Two Bedroom Suites with spacious open-air balconies, located in the intimate and private residence, Harbor House, a secluded tropical escape of suites located on the ground floor and second floor, tucked away inside the Old Town resort along the sparkling Key West Harbor. The property has enforced a multi-pronged approach to health and wellbeing, providing guests with peace of mind while traveling to Key West.
The newly-updated spaces revive The Marker’s profound legacy of combining Key West’s rich history and tradition with charming character, modern amenities, and sophisticated eclecticism. The Marker Key West Harbor Resort pays homage to the unique spirit of Key West, life at the end of the road, an escape from ordinary life on the mainland.
Located in the historic seaport at the foot of William Street, The Marker is just steps from the waterfront boardwalk, al fresco dining, buzzing outdoor bars fishing charters, and only a couple blocks from legendary Duval Street and Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration - the most active and celebrated part of Old Town Key West.
The Marker Key West Harbor Resort immerses guests in a tranquil hideaway hidden among the Florida Keys’ world-famous attractions. The resort is a hidden sanctuary of lush tropical grounds with plenty of space for social distancing, including three saltwater pools, an open-air outdoor restaurant, and bar for al fresco dining with ocean breezes. The low-rise nature of the property makes it easy to navigate without using elevators, along with expansive outdoor areas throughout the hotel.
“To grow and evolve with our loyal and discerning clientele, we embarked on a gorgeous interior renovation with the help of the incredible design team at waldrop+nichols studio,” said General Manager Sean Van Den Broeck. “We look forward to welcoming new travelers to The Marker and introducing them to our new luxury Residences with spacious balconies and free Wifi, ideal for remote learning and working outside in the South Florida sun.”
Guests can choose from one and two-bedroom layouts for The Residences. For maximum safety and comfort, guests can relax on their large private wrap-around balconies, with a stunning view of Caroline Street. The perfect addition of spacious private outdoor space for morning yoga, coffee, or a bottle of wine pre-dinner. The renovated suites create more options for travelers seeking luxuriously appointed living spaces and bedrooms, in addition to the 4-star experience that The Marker is known for.
Immediately upon entering the expansive 1,000 – 1,400 square-foot suites, guests are met with eye-catching, contemporary artwork offset by warm oak floors, sumptuous linens, and rattan furniture that evokes the feeling of a tropical beach resort. All guestrooms at The Marker are adorned large with scenic balconies for guests to watch the sunset, soak in the social scene at the pool, or gaze at the boats in the Key West Harbor from the comfort of their guestroom. Each suite features a mid-century modern wet bar, with a selection of Key West beers and spirits for purchase, including Papa’s Pilar Rum, which is distilled within walking distance of the property.
The spa-like bathrooms feature a soaking tub and walk-in rain shower, handmade cement tiles, brass hardware, and white countertops for a fresh, chic finish. Guestrooms additionally feature large soaking tubs and showers.
The hotel’s fitness center was also updated, creating more options for guests looking to stay in shape between bites of the city’s ubiquitous Key Lime Pie. The property added new state-of-the-art equipment, including Hydrow® rower machines and Peloton bikes.
Additionally, the hotel’s newly updated meeting room accommodates up to 70 guests. Brimming with natural light, the indoor event space spans 655 square feet with 11-foot ceilings showcasing expansive views of Old Town Key West.
