Much-anticipated Fitch Lodge opens in the Florida Keys

by | 06 Sep 2020 | Projects

A stylish 44-room boutique property, part of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ new Kimpton Key West collection, has launched in Old Town Key West.

Following the recent openings of Winslow’s Bungalows and Lighthouse Hotel, Kimpton Key West has taken things to the next level with the unveiling of Fitch Lodge. We take a closer look at this exciting development.

Laid-back Caribbean vibes at Fitch Lodge

The Sunshine State just got a whole lot brighter with the arrival of the long-awaited Fitch Lodge. The hotel is the third in a planned collection of five boutique properties.

“As each of the hotels in our collection offers something completely unique and different, we are so excited to further expand upon ways in which our guests can experience the Keys,” said Cheryl Martin, general manager of Kimpton Key West.

The hotel – positioned as the most value-driven in the Kimpton Key West collection – occupies a series of four turn-of-the-19th-century conch houses, which unfold to incorporate an outdoor pool and 44 guest rooms including three suites.

Designed by LA-based outfit Powerstrip Studio, the interiors are a subtle nod to the island’s colourful history and laid-back Caribbean vibe. As such, understated custom furniture, lighting and artwork are layered with eclectic bohemian accents and fresh tropical touches.

A location for adventure travellers

Set within the island’s Old Town, the property is a short stride from the Key West Historic Seaport and the Key West Ferry. Its location is also within easy access of a range of activities from snorkelling adventures to deep-sea fishing or, for the more sedate, sunset sails and charter boats.

Martin added: “At Fitch Lodge, we provide our guests with all the tools they’ll need to make the most of their stay, including snorkel kits, boating towels, afternoon poolside refreshers and, of course, a welcome cocktail upon arrival, among other amenities. The property is a wonderful addition to our growing collection, and we look forward to welcoming our guests.”

Fitch Lodge follows the recent launches of Winslow’s Bungalows and Lighthouse Hotel, with Ella’s Cottages and Ridley House set to open in the autumn. Scattered around the historic district, each Kimpton Key West property aims to offer its own distinct story and stay experience.



San Francisco-based Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, a collection of boutique hotels and chef-driven restaurants in the US, is an acknowledged industry pioneer and was the first to bring the boutique hotel concept to America.
