To get to Naples from the east, just take Interstate 75 west. It is a relatively short 1 hour and 44 minute drive through the Everglades. This favorite in the Naples hotels category sits right along the beach on Gulf Shore Drive.


Prepare to be pampered at this hotel. There is free valet parking. When sitting on the beach, guests enjoy butler service befitting royalty.

The rooms offer large flat-screen televisions with lots of movies on demand.
