Key West is looking to be the first resort in Key West to open its doors again for a full year, with its opening planned for May.
The resort, which has been closed since December 2018, is the subject of the latest controversy.
The local fire department says the resort will remain closed for the next month and a half to allow for safety and inspection, but a company spokeswoman told the Associated Press that the resort is planning to reopen in the fall.
The spokeswoman said the resort, like most of Key West’s other hotels, is still under construction, and the first hotel on the property is set to open this fall.
A second hotel will open in 2019.
