The Reach Key West, Curio Collection by Hilton will reopen on Dec. 1 following a major renovation project. The 150-room hotel, with rooms starting at $254 per night, has been completely redesigned with a modern take on a nautical theme.
The hotel features bathroom vanities shaped like a boat's hull, teak-toned furniture and shades of blue throughout the decor and finishes. In the lobby, guests can view a mural called "Gypsy Chicken," created by the Miami-based, Cuban-American street artist DaveL and commissioned by the hotel's interior designers. Four Marlins is the Reach's signature restaurant, named after the photo of Ernest Hemingway on a fishing trip with his sons in the Keys.
The Reach, located just a few blocks from the Southernmost Point, offers plenty to keep guests busy. The hotel has its own private beach -- what the hotel says is Key West's only natural sand beach -- and offers water-based activities such as Jet Ski tours, kayaking and snorkeling. A resident sand sculptor will lead sand-sculpting classes in addition to creating a changing exhibition. In 2020, the hotel will also partner with Key West Room Escape to offer two on-site escape room experiences.
Guests will also have access to sister hotel, Casa Marina, and its amenities.
