Meisel Holdings

Meisel Holdings has ushered in a new era of upscale hospitality in Key West, Florida with the opening of H2O Suites.  Expressly designed for adults only, the ultra-luxe hotel features 22 one-bedroom suites with private outdoor space, modern amenities and services, and an enviable location just one block from Duval Street and steps from the area’s celebrated beaches and ocean excursions. 

The first hotel of this caliber in Key West, H2O Suites redefines contemporary service and style, delivering an unmistakable new lodging paradigm to this worldwide destination.  The concept was born out of the growing demand for a modern boutique hotel experience that caters to discerning adult travelers. 

“At our Santa Maria Suites hotel which offers two-bedroom suites, we were regularly seeing couples traveling without children who desired a one-bedroom layout and a private and more romantic setting,” said Marc L. Meisel, CEO of Meisel Holdings in referring to another of the company’s Key West hotels which was named #17 in the country by Trip Advisor.  “H20 Suites is the answer to that demand, offering a tranquil retreat infused with high quality and service that’s in proximity to the energy and excitement of Old Town Key West.” 

Designed with modern décor and high-style furnishings, H2O’s 22 suites feature a private balcony or patio to enjoy tropical courtyard views and gentle sea breezes, individual plunge pools with 11 of the suites, a living area with a plush sofa and wet bar to relax and unwind, a spa-inspired bath with Italian marble and glass rainfall shower to help revive your senses, a luxurious king-size bed and two flat screen TV’s. 

The hotel’s relaxing vibe extends to the stunning rooftop deck where panoramic vistas of Old Town Key West, a refreshing pool, comfortable lounges, tropical libations from the Roof Top bar and poolside tapas enhance the quiet, island life ambiance. For those looking to recharge with a wellness experience in paradise, a fitness center features state-of-the-art cardio equipment, free weights, and resistance and fitness training equipment. 

Complimentary Champagne with Chambord upon first arrival, daily Mimosas and Bloody Marys at the Roof Top Pool, and red and white wine selections with assorted tapas help set the relaxing, resort-inspired mood at the hotel, while H2O’s 24-hour Concierge embodies the hotel’s commitment to impeccable service.  From making reservations at the island’s hottest cuisine destinations to booking fishing, sailing or diving adventures to recommending secret hideaways only the locals know about, H20’s Concierge will help guests make incredible memories of their island getaway. 

When adventure does call, guests at H20 Suites are within walking distance of the island’s white sand beaches, historic landmarks and legendary nightlife.  Dining favorites offering up hand-rolled sushi to casual al fresco meals to seafood specialties await, while live music, a Key West hallmark, can be found at numerous venues. 

When the night ends, guests can retreat back to the sanctuary of their luxurious H2O suite, where nightly turndown service includes frozen Dove ice cream bars, locally fresh baked muffins and Ghirardelli chocolates.

The Company engages in all facets of the projects including construction, development and management, with Meisel Holdings Managed Services managing all of the company’s hotel properties.

Meisel Holdings LLC, through its principals, has been involved in the Key West hospitality industry for decades.  Joel Meisel, founding principal of Meisel Holdings, entered the Key West hospitality market in 1988, purchasing the Casa Marina Resort and operated the 311-room property under the Marriott flag.  Shortly thereafter Meisel Holdings expanded their presence in Key West, purchasing the 149-room Reach Resort which was also run as a Marriott resort.  During ownership of the two properties, they were considered premiere resort destination hotels.

In 2005, the Key West Santa Maria Motel was acquired.  Focusing on the repositioning of the asset, the property was demolished except for the historic lobby building, which was renovated and is now home to Ambrosia Restaurant.  The hotel was resurrected in 2007 as a luxury condominium complex consisting of all two bedroom suites.  Meisel Holdings maintains control of a majority of the condominium units and the property is currently operated as a condominium hotel, managed by Meisel Holdings.
