The Monday after thanksgiving, AKA “Cyber Monday,” isn’t just about online deals on big screens and new clothes. Hoteliers across the state of Florida are getting in on the online action by creating special incentives for travelers who reserve a room during this special booking window. Here are some of the premier properties that are offering deals.

The Perry Hotel, Key West
Key West’s newest luxury hotel doesn’t try to dazzle, and instead seeks to blend into the waterfront vibe of the Stock Island Marina. The concrete is rough, the wood is reclaimed, and the metal framing has a calculated patina. Step inside, however, and you’ll not want for creature comforts in the 100-room waterfront property. Rooms with expansive balconies provide saltwater lagoon or marina views, and feature inspired local artwork, gorgeously tiled oversized showers, and flooring reminiscent of driftwood or a storied old boat. Two on-site restaurants serve up Executive Chef Ryan Fredstrom’s interpretations of American Coastal Comfort Food, featuring fresh catches from the nearby docks. Cyber Monday deals give travelers 40 percent off the best available rates for stays between November 27, 2017 and June 28, 2018. Visit www.perrykeywest.com with promo code CYBER.
