This fall will see the $22million renovation and rebranding of one of the oldest hotels in Key West, the Southern Cross hotel as it is re-christened the Saint Hotel Key West.
David Mark Wyant, Sr., owner and developer of the Saint Hotel New Orleans snapped up the historic property, which will open its revamped doors October 2014.
“When I saw this property I knew it was a rare find, a perfect location for the eccentric and fun-loving spirit of The Saint Hotel brand,” said Mr. Wyant….I promise you that The Saint Hotel Key West will offer a new, different and exciting hotel choice for the millions of leisure travelers who come to this beautiful island.”
The Duvel street property will feature thirty seven rooms and six suites (four junior and two large) across multiple buildings. Fourteen of the rooms will be situated in the historical building, which will feature dark wood paneling and warehouse style fixtures. The remaining rooms will be adjacent to the historical building and fitted with oversized marble bathrooms. All rooms will be decked out in the brand’s signature cobalt blue and white color scheme.
Guests can expect iHome sound systems and a complimentary breakfast at the hotel’s Pilar bar. Luxury travelers will enjoy the landscaped pool area complete with chaise and cabana area and a pool butler service or the 75-person balcony overlooking Duval Street with regularly scheduled live music.
