Furnishings in the Main House are reflective of its late-1800s “Old Florida” vintage, creatively interpreted to suit its present incarnation as an upscale lodging choice. The result is an appealingly eclectic ambience, unlike anything else in the Key West, Florida lodging scene. Beautiful beds of teak, mango wood, brass, and iron complement antique dressers and armoires. Judicious accents of wicker and rattan conjure a decidedly West Indies plantation vibe.
The architecture and interiors in the garden cottages are more contemporary, evoking a carefree island vibe through features such as vaulted bamboo reed ceilings, cool tile floors, and exotic furnishings hinting of Indonesia, the South Seas, and faraway adventures.
While each room and suite at Tropical Inn is individually appointed, there are some aspects that are constant in every room: all exude understated luxury, featuring indulgently comfortable bedding, the finest linens, plush towels, spa-quality bath amenities, flat-panel cable television, refrigerator, and free wireless Internet.
Baths are tiled in ceramic and natural stone. Beds are dressed in designer fabrics over top-quality pillows and mattresses. Light, breezy fabrics, natural elements, and Caribbean colors typify the casually elegant tropical living experience for which Key West is known.
A variety of accommodations are available, all but one – the Banyan Tree Suite – featuring one handcrafted king-size or queen-size bed. The Banyan Tree Suite has an extra twin-size bed in a small room separate from the main sleeping area.
