Welcome to your charming private studio apartment right on Duval street! Built in 1919, it used to be called the Central Hotel because it’s located at the most central location on Duval Street bordering Southard Street and Duval Street!

Although this a vacation rental and not a hotel per se with a lobby etc, we kept hotel in the name in keeping with historic nostalgia, "Key West Suites Hotel"

The space
This in an unbelievable place and is priced right for what you get and the location. Absolutely everything is new, it was gutted and redone top to bottom. The floors and kitchen and bathroom were completely ripped out and rebuilt. All the top end appliances are brand new. The floor is completely new, the ceiling fans, new, lights, new, the bathroom with huge slab tile and solid glass partition, all new and amazing. When you walk in you are overwhelmed with a Wow factor! The biggest comments I hear from tenants is great location, much larger than I could imagine, clean, and silent. You may need a white noise machine to sleep because of how quiet it is. Someone who wants to be in old town on Duval in a luxury space this is more than awesome.

The building once housed the Chrysler/Desoto car dealership, a furniture store, and later a clothing store where the Beatles came to make a purchase and caused the cashier to pass out on the floor. It has since been refurbished into a beautiful art gallery, two restaurants, a bar, and the newly renovated apartments upstairs.

If this is your first time to Key West, remember to simply let go and relax. Some people try too hard their first time to do everything they can within a few days, but it's hard, and they forget to go with our island vibe. I've been here for over twenty years and although quite active, there is still a ton of things that I haven't done. I would prioritize this though, eat well, sleep well, drink or dance for fun, and make sure you at least get ON TOP of the water if not in it, so even a sunset cruise or something if you aren't into swimming or fishing.

This studio is decorated by Adam Scott Rote with a variety of his artworks. He is a world class artist and we are honored to have him decorate our unit, the Adam Scott Rote Suite in Key West Suites Hotel.

Stella Stevens calls him a pop culture icon. Debbie Reynolds says Adam is truly gifted with an eye for composition and imagination. Angie Dickinson called him her “Warhol.” Al Pacino stated, upon signing his Scarface painting, that it was the best he had ever seen. Adam has worked with Academy award winners Martin Landau, Ernest Borgnine, Al Pacino, Joan Fontaine, Patricia Neal and Goldie Hawn along with screen legends Jerry Lewis, Burt Reynolds, Angie Dickinson, Tippi Hedren, Stella Stevens, Esther Williams, Kurt Russell, Kim Novak, Debbie Reynolds, Nicholas Cage, Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Carrie Fisher, Tim Curry, Stan Lee and William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, Ali Macgraw, Famke Janssen, Loni Anderson and Barbara Eden. He has a loyal following of collectors including his royal highness Abdullah Al-Saud, Turner Classic Movies Vice President of Talent Darcy Hettrich, veteran television producer and director Karen Grace Cadle and director George Lucas.

If this is your first time to Key West, remember to simply let go and relax. Some people try too hard their first time to do everything they can within a few days, but it's hard, and they forget to go with our island vibe. I've been here for over twenty years and although quite active, there is still a ton of things that I haven't done. I would prioritize this though, eat well, sleep well, drink or dance for fun, and make sure you at least get ON TOP of the water if not in it, so even a sunset cruise or something if you aren't into swimming or fishing.

There are nice beaches nearby, go to Ft. Zachary Taylor beach, which is very nice, or Smather's beach, very relaxing, sometimes some kite surfers and small wedding groups.
There are restaurants a plenty, and right next to the unit is some of the very best, Miso Happy Thai and one of the two best sushi restaurants, Kojin an awesome noodle place, I have a Saigon Salad addiction there, The café across the street which although mostly vegetarian has the most incredible shrimp stir fry known to man, La Trattoria across the street half a block has reasonable prices of fine Italian dining and the quality is off the charts, and for breakfast and lunches Cuban coffee queen is at the bottom of the stairs, and keys coffee across the street has in my opinion the best cold nitro coffee and beyond delicious sandwiches. And outside the one-half block area are also many, many excellent places to eat. Sloppy Joes is good for a lunchtime eat and becomes and actually pretty good nightclub when it gets dark. Great music bars that locals always go to is Green Parrot, Hogs Breath and Schooner Wharf. Certainly, check out the fine art gallery down below, Key West Gallery. There’s great eating next door, the noodle shop Kojin, Thai and the best sushi Miso Happy, Cuban coffee queen for breakfast and lunch, keys coffee across the street with excellent sandwiches, Mr. Z's cheesesteaks across the street, the best vegetables at the Café across the street, fine dining within a block, great live music venue bars also within a block, and a quarter mile from Fort Zachary State Park beaches.

During your stay
Although we are Key West Suites Hotel, it is a vacation rental and there is no staff, just me and I live a couple miles away. No one will be coming in while you’re there to clean etc.

The door lock is an electronic deadbolt and I send you your code a few days before arrival, so you don’t need to interact with anyone to check in.
We have four units in Key West Suites Hotel, so if you need more or want to see if another unit is more your style, Look up our Key West Suites Hotel airbnb page.

People check out at 10am, but I usually allow them to leave their bags up until 2pm, and then people checking in can put their luggage in the unit until it's clean by 4pm. If it's already clean, ie no one checking out that day, just drop them off anytime, but otherwise you may have to wait until 2pm.

Just check sooner to check in date and I'll know if anyone is checking out that morning. If it's still an issue, there's a business I have no affiliation with called Paradise Porters, and they handle luggage for a fee. They'll pick up and hold your luggage, and deliver them whenever your ready for them. Hope that helps!
