Located in the heart of 5th Avenue, the 119-room Inn on Fifth is a boutique option that is as glitzy as its surroundings. Rooms are upscale and stylish, with a sophisticated black-and-white color scheme and pops of red, and great amenities such as iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The serene rooftop pool deck is a favorite for a quiet day in the sun, and the spa offers signature massages in a luxurious space with wooden floors and a soothing earth-tone palette. There are two excellent restaurants on-site, but breakfast is only served in the Club Level lounge, which is off-limits to guests staying in the main building. Those looking for a more family-friendly hotel may prefer the Naples Bay Resort, located a five-minute drive away.
Small upscale hotel with elegant interiors and a lovely rooftop pool
Housed in a quaint yellow building with terra-cotta-tile roofs and arched windows, the Inn on Fifth is not your typical Naples boutique. From the outside the property may look classic and understated, but an impressive marble lobby with crystal chandeliers and a grand staircase sets a luxurious tone. Red lacquered accents and cream-colored club chairs stand out against the gleaming beige marble floors and cute pale wallpaper, while a bright red accent wall punctuates the sleek white front desk. This decor style and bold palette lend the space a sophisticated feel that continues through the rest of the property, including in the Avenue 5 restaurant, the spa, and even the meeting rooms. Though the property oozes elegance and style, it is also friendly and relaxing, with a lovely 3,600-square-foot rooftop deck complete with a whirlpool, lots of loungers, food and drink service, and a quiet vibe throughout.
In 2012 the Inn expanded to the building directly across from it, adding 32 Club Level suites, an additional private rooftop deck with a whirlpool, and an executive lounge. This hotel-within-a-hotel offers larger units, as well as extra services such as free continental breakfast, which is not provided in the main building.
Directly on 5th Avenue, near famous restaurants and shops, and blocks from the beach
True to its name, this hotel is located right on 5th Avenue, one of Old Naples’ most coveted locations. This block is lined with renowned restaurants, cafes, art galleries, and boutiques, and there are plenty of other dining and shopping options within a couple of blocks. The property offers free shuttle service to the beach, which is just a 10-minute walk down 5th Avenue, and to the downtown area. It is also a 10-minute walk from Tin City, a touristy shopping mall with several restaurants. Naples Pier is a great spot to watch the sunset less than five minutes by car, and the Naples Museum of Art can be reached in about 10 minutes. Just a little farther away are the Naples Nature Center, complete with hiking trails, and the Naples National Golf Club. The Inn also offers privileges at a few local courses and at a nearby tennis club. Southwest Florida International Airport is a 40-minute drive from the Inn. Free parking is available on-site.

Decor is sophisticated and elegant, with a black-and-white color scheme, pops of cherry red in accent pillows and bed runners, and thick beige carpets with wavy geometric patterns in black.

Two restaurants; rooftop pool; meeting space; and spa with saunas, steam rooms, and a fitness center

Its signature dish is Florida stone crab, and during stone crab season (fall through spring), Truluck's offers a weekly all-you-can-eat stone crab night.
