Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants announces the November 15 opening of Ella's Cottages, the fourth of five properties to open in the new Kimpton Key West collection located throughout the island's Old Town historic district. Joining the recently opened Winslow's Bungalows, Lighthouse Hotel and Fitch Lodge, Ella's Cottages is located just steps from lively Duval Street and features 22 guestrooms and cottages, including five suites. The final property in the collection, Ridley House, is slated to open in early 2021.

Beckoning guests to unwind by its secluded pool or wander through its lush greenery, Ella's Cottages is a bohemian retreat that blends modern accents with 1800s authenticity. The property's history began in the nineteenth century when it provided homes for the area's Cuban cigar makers. Over the years, some of the structures have operated as a tailor shop, a butcher shop, a gambling house and a beauty salon. Throughout its history, the property has maintained its charm and connection to the area, remaining a crucial piece of Key West history. It now features private patios, spacious suites, and an outdoor pool. Perfectly suited for groups and longer-term guests, Ella's central location allows guests to watch the world go by from their front porch.

A Distinctive Collection for a One-of-a-Kind Destination

Winslow's Bungalows is the largest property in the collection at 85 rooms and spans a lush, landscaped campus in the center of Key West just two blocks off Duval Street, offering a spacious and relaxing setting complete with three private pools, an outdoor bar and vibrant gardens. Lighthouse Hotel, a historic property located adjacent to both the iconic Key West Lighthouse and the Ernest Hemingway House, features a collection of mid-19th-century buildings set amongst brick garden grounds, a lively swimming pool and a pool-side bar. With 44 guestrooms, Fitch Lodge is the most value-driven of the collection, and in addition to its cozy neighborhood setting, features easy access to the Key West Ferry, charter boats, sunset sails, snorkeling adventures, deep sea fishing and more, making it ideal for couples and adventurous travelers looking to explore the crystal clear water surrounding the Florida Keys. Ella's Cottages provides a peaceful oasis surrounded by tropical landscaping in the heart of the Old Town art district, Ridley House, expected to open in early in 2021, is the collection's closest location to the Key West Historic Seaport, Mallory Square and just a crawl away from Duval Street and will provide a peaceful oasis surrounded by tropical landscaping in the heart of the Old Town art district.
