New-build modern Florida Keys hotel joins bi-coastal agency’s client roster
Progressive, award-winning travel and tourism firm, Diamond Public Relations, has added Hotel Key West at Stock Island Marina to its global client roster. The bi-coastal agency, headquartered in Miami with an office in Los Angeles, will handle all North American public relations efforts on behalf of the new property, set to open in early 2017. Agency will generate awareness for Hotel Key West on a regional and national level, keeping both the media and consumer informed regarding the developments, opening and news of what will be an upscale and sophisticated retreat in the Florida Keys, different from anything the area has seen before.
Situated between the mangroves lining Shrimp Road and the 220-slip Stock Island Marina Village complex, the $38 million hotel development will be complemented by shops, restaurants, and the largest deep water marina in the area. The hotel will offer guests a lush outdoor pool area with private cabanas, a bar & grill overlooking the marina, a “boat to table” seafood-driven restaurant and eco tours ranging from paddle boarding and kayaking to diving and fishing. The 100-room boutique property will feature a modern design that’s a nod to Key West’s industrial boatyard heritage, providing an ideal home base for boating, diving and fishing enthusiasts looking to experience the natural beauty of the Florida Keys in style.
An ideal jumping off point for couples, groups and solo travelers looking to explore the local area, Hotel Key West will be walking distance from local attractions such as the Key West Golf Club, Tennessee Williams Theater, Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Garden, in addition to the lively entertainment, shopping and nightlife of Shrimp Road, Safe Harbor and the Stock Island Marina Village. With historic downtown Key West just minutes away, travelers can easily explore the iconic vacation destination and return in time for dinner.
“As professionals, this is the kind of project we love to sink our teeth into, but even better yet, as consumers and fans of the Keys, we can’t wait for this hotel to open. There’s nothing like this in Key West,” said Diamond PR President Jody Diamond. “You have to wait for the big reveal, but it’s coming soon and there’s lots to look forward to with its F&B, design and programming concepts. This hotel and the exceptional team they’ve created are going to reinvigorate the local area and attract a whole new market to the Keys. There are so many unique stories around this property and we’re anxious to start sharing them.”
