In Florida, the Marker Key West Harbor Resort has unveiled a $3 million renovation, including the Residences, one- and two-bedroom suites located on the ground and second floors. 

The newly updated spaces combine Key West’s history and tradition with modern amenities and eclecticism. The Residences suites, which range from 1,000 to 1,400 square feet, have private wrap-around balconies to maximize outdoor time. The suites also have contemporary artwork offset by warm oak floors and rattan furniture that evokes the feeling of a tropical beach resort.

The hotel’s fitness center also was updated with new equipment, including Hydrow rower machines and Peloton bikes. The newly renovated meeting room accommodates up to 70 guests in a range of seating styles. 

The resort has three saltwater pools as well as an open-air outdoor restaurant and bar for al fresco dining. 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 GM 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 Wi-fi, ideal for remote learning and working outside in the South Florida sun.”

The Marker Key West Harbor Resort is managed by Highgate.
