Kimpton Key West’s Ridley House Now Adults-Only, First for the Brand

23-Room Boutique a Perfect Choice for Those Seeking a Relaxed, Yet Sophisticated Escape

Kimpton Key West, a top-ranked collection of five boutique hotels centrally located in and around Old Town and world-famous Duval Street, announces the transition of its high-end Ridley House to an adults-only retreat – making it the first property for Kimpton to cater exclusively to the grown-up traveler (age 21 and older).

With exclusive perks, and amenities to suit, and rates for Fall/Winter starting at $499/night, visitors to Key West seeking a more decidedly grown-up guest experience can now book a stay at Ridley House and enjoy a sophisticated and secluded stay at this historic 1930s estate.

In addition to having access to the full range of offerings and experiences offered at all five hotels in the Kimpton Key West collection – from guided yoga and barre classes to poolside spirit tastings and live music – exclusive offerings for Ridley House guests include:

  • Poolside Blackjack every Friday
  • Full Moon Tarot Card Readings monthly
  • Upscale Afternoon Refreshers – ranging from cocktails and mocktails, to boozy popsicles and Key Lime bites (presented poolside throughout the week and updated seasonally)
  • Special nightly turndown amenity

With 23 elegantly appointed and expansive guestrooms spread across three historic homes – two Victorian and one Bahamian Eyebrow – Ridley House sits tucked away behind classic picket fences and low-hanging trees immersing guests in a tropical oasis. Classic bohemian touches such as private porches and an intimate outdoor pool deliver a serene and relaxing South Florida experience for which Key West is renowned.

A perfect option for couples and those looking for an elegant, yet relaxed experience, Ridley House sits on the lush grounds of what was once the estate of wealthy, 19th-century industrialist and passionate naturalist, Richard Kemp. Today, it’s prime location in Old Town near Duval Street where Caroline and Simonton streets meet, provides guests with easy access to the island’s numerous water activities as well as Key West’s famous nightlife.

Since its completion in 2021, Kimpton Key West has continued to expand its offerings with an array of Key-sie experiences that help guests enjoy the destination like a true local – from its Cupcake Sushi tastings to its exclusive dining program across four local restaurants; signature boozy welcome beverage specially created by one of Key West’s best loved breweries; complimentary snorkel kit, and pet pampering program with plenty of perks.

Popular Kimpton amenities and services are also available including complimentary morning coffee and tea; loaner beach bikes (first come first serve); high-speed WiFi, access to more than 7,000 newspapers and magazines on your smart device via the Press Reader app, and an in-room yoga mat and Turkish robes (available for purchase for guests who would like to take one home).
