PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (April 04, 2017) – Steps away from the Peace River in downtown Punta Gorda, Fla., is a full service 63-room boutique hotel with a rooftop pool that fuses European grace with South Florida charm. Housed in a glorious art-deco edifice and home of the popular Perch 360 restaurant is one of Southwest Florida’s sophisticated accommodations, the Wyvern Hotel. Recently, the hotel became the sole Southwest Florida hotel in the Condé Nast Johansens collection and one of 27 in the United States. The Condé Nast Johansens collection is an invitation-only travel reference guide popular with independent travelers and is produced by the publishers of Condé Nast Traveller, Glamour, GQ and Vogue.

“The Condé Nast Johansens collection features an exclusive group of luxury hotels, spas and venues and it is an honor having the Wyvern Hotel recognized and included with a limited number of Florida properties,” said Mr. Zack Oxley, General Manager of the Wyvern Hotel, “Since its opening in 2008, the hotel has been an important and popular locale in Southwest Florida and our partnership with Condé Nast Johansens, will introduce more travelers to the Wyvern Hotel and charms of Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach.”

“The Wyvern Hotel stands out with its metropolitan sophistication and personable hospitality and we congratulate the hotel on being included in the prestigious Condé Nast Johansens collection,” said Lorah Steiner, Director of Tourism for the Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach Visitor & Convention Bureau, “We are looking forward to introducing more people to everything the Charlotte Harbor Gulf Island Coast has to offer.”  

Located within walking distance of dining, shopping, nightlife and a host of outdoor activities, the Wyvern Hotel’s rooftop restaurant, Perch 360, serves locally-sourced tapas-style, calorie-conscious dishes, and craft cocktails where diners enjoy plush cabanas, fire pits, and spectacular view of downtown Punta Gorda and the Peace River. Individual hotel rooms feature spacious rooms with Italian bed linen; warm, dark wood furniture; and marble-floored bathrooms with oversized bathtubs. Fine art created by local artists adorn the hotel’s walls. Soon, the Wyvern Hotel’s 88 Keys Florida restaurant will be serving guests breakfast, lunch and dinner.
