The Grand Maloney Hotel, six-bedroom property, is set to reopen in May, after a nearly 2-year restoration and renovation.
The historic estate was purchased in 2019 by Spottswood Hotels and has been restored and named after Walter C. Maloney, an early member of the Spottswood family who was elected Key West Mayor in 1846.
“This project was a special one. Multiple generations of our family have grown up on this block, so it was important for our team to design an experience that preserves history while also embracing a modern aesthetic and contemporary approach to service,” said Billy Spottswood, president of Spottswood Hotels. “Elaine did an excellent job leading our design and executing that vision.”
Throughout the property, guestrooms and common spaces feature furnishings that blend the hotel’s historic materials with new luxury finishes and bold colors- such as a floor-to-ceiling bright yellow-tiled shower; an in-room original brick fireplace, and colorful botanical print wallpaper. Adding to this experience, The Grand Maloney is introducing a newly-built pool and outdoor space offering an additional area for groups to entertain. In addition, no two rooms or spaces are alike throughout the property.
“It was a privilege to salvage what original pieces we could—such as brick, interior molding and 150-year-old wood floors—and build around them, inspiring us to create a seamless transition from old to new,” said Elaine Spottswood, founder and principal of Spottswood Interiors. ”Each of the six bedrooms is uniquely appointed, preserving Key West’s signature island-style, and now merged with modern amenities that make it the ideal escape for the discerning traveler.”
The property is located down the street from President Harry S. Truman’s Winter White House, and within a mile of the Hemingway House, as well as steps from Duval Street.
