The Palms Hotel, a Key West Hotel

Historic Old Town Lodging in Key West



The Palms Hotel is the perfect hybrid of a quaint historically built guesthouse with all the amenities of a modern hotel in the Historic Old Town district of Key West. Surrounded by gracious Victorian and quaint “Conch” architecture, the Palms is only a few minutes walk or bicycle ride from superb shops, world class fishing, delectable dining and a world of entertaining attractions- all exclusively Key West.

Our historical Key West Inn is an enticing example of island architecture. The Main House – built in 1889 – features lace-like gingerbread trim and large wraparound verandahs. Here, you can relax in comfortable, Caribbean-style wicker chairs or settees and sink into the languid rhythm of the tropics. The courtyard’s focal point is a seasonally heated swimming pool, surrounded by an expansive sunbathing deck.

If relaxing is your favorite pastime, you’ll revel in the casual elegance, impeccable service and restful atmosphere at The Palms Hotel. Or, if you’re feeling energetic, sample Duval Street’s many boutiques and galleries, experience the nightly Mallory Square sunset celebration, take a dive or snorkeling excursion to the nearby coral reef, visit local museums, or rent a bicycle at the reception desk to wander Old Town’s winding streets, passing historic homes and yards filled with fragrant blossoms along your way.

While reminiscent of the Victorian age at its charming best, the Palms provides all the sophisticated attentions and services to be found at a thoroughly modern resort hotel, in a historical guest house setting. It is not unusual for a guest to return year after year to relax and refresh their spirits. We periodically offer discounts and specials for your stay in Key West, so please check those out as well.

Whether your pace is lively or laid-back, you’ll find The Palm’s management and staff eager to offer recommendations for a memorable tropical visit. Come stay with us at the Key West Palms Hotel!
