Comfortable Hotel Close to Naples’ Beaches
The town of Naples on Florida’s Gulf Coast was so named when newspapers continuously referred to the town’s warm, Mediterranean-like climate and waters overflowing with fish. The area’s bay was said to be “surpassing the bay in Naples, Italy” and a 19th-century public-relations campaign to name the town after the Italian city helped it to flourish. The Inn of Naples sits less than a mile from Inner Doctors Bay, part of the body of water that inspired the town’s somewhat-boastful name. Located close to the city’s famed pristine beaches, its seafood eateries, and Italian-inspired gondola rides at The Village on Venetian Bay, The Inn of Naples offers comfortable guest rooms in a serene tropical setting.
Every morning, you can wake up to a sunrise from the private balcony of your room, whether it’s a standard room, deluxe room, or one-bedroom suite. Each standard room includes a 32-inch flat-screen TV and a separate dressing area, and each deluxe room includes a little extra room, plus a refrigerator and a microwave. Choose a one-bedroom suite for the most space, as you’ll have a living room with a sofa sleeper, plus a separate bedroom with its own TV. In the morning, guests find a complimentary breakfast in the dining area.
There’s a heated outdoor pool where guests can unwind on lounge chairs, and a fitness center next door. The hotel also offers discounted ticket for Naples Trolley Tours, which stops right outside the front door. On the trolley, a guide narrates the history of the city while stopping at attractions such as the City Dock, the Village on Venetian Bay, and the Naples Museum of Art.
Naples, Florida: Upscale Retreat and Golfing Paradise on Pristine West Coast
Located along Florida’s southwest edge on the Gulf of Mexico, Naples is a small city set among wandering waterways and scenic estuaries. Everything in Naples seems impeccably clean, from the bleached sand of its 10-mile-long pristine beaches to its bathwater-warm water. One of the prettiest spots is Naples Pier, a dock that extends 1,000 feet into the gulf. Crowds of fishers have plenty of room to cast their lines for pompano, a plump silverfish.
Inland from the pier you can find Old Naples, where luxury cars are parked outside art galleries, upscale restaurants, and bars with outdoor patios. Walk along the brick sidewalks of Third Street South and you’ll find open plazas with antique bronze fountains, as well as turn-of-the-century cottages and striking Mediterranean Revival homes.
More than 80 championship golf courses are located throughout Naples, convincing some to call the city “the Golf Capital of the World.” It's a lofty claim, but Naples backs it up with warm, tropical weather year-round and the second-most golf holes per capita in the country, according to World Golf.
