✨ When a hotel is even better in person and exceeds your expectations - Lily Hall in Pensacola, Florida totally achieved this magic and we cannot wait to visit again!
🪴Originally a church turned into boutique hotel, Lily Hall meticulously curated their new space with historic and local pieces - adorned with hand picked records, classic books and typewriter letters telling its story.
🧳Ideally located in the heart of historic Pensacola, FL minutes away from the best local spots for business savvy travelers, couples on a getaway & families, Lily Hall feels both like an escape to somewhere unexplored and like home - cozy, inviting and intriguing all at the same time.
We had the opportunity to meet in Lily's Parlor and tour the grounds with Kari, Executive Host. I had the best time listening to her describe how Lily Hall has evolved over the years, and what it represents now - new beginnings connecting back to our roots. It was so refreshing to hear how passionate Kari is about her job and the love that is poured into making Lily Hall so special. Every piece inside the hotel was carefully picked for a reason and is shared for guests to enjoy. Get cozy with a book in the Parlor or pick a record to listen to in your room! Custom coffee mugs were created by the owners, who also run a Nashville coffee shop. This space feels so serene and inspired us to unwind intentionally.
"I get to escape to this place, tell its story - and it's magical." - Kari, Executive Host
Type your own letter, or find and read the typewriter letters scattered throughout the property to piece together bits of Lily Hall's story. (This is such a fun and themed bonus here that is a Disney-esque touch not typically seen in most hotels. We love it!)
The Gathering Nook overlooks Lily's Parlor. Tucked away here sipping a glass of wine is the way to go.
All in the details: Hand-painted tile, a custom signature scent (that smells divine!) lightly fills the air and bright, fun wallpaper

Don’t leave 📍Pensacola, FL without a visit to Brother Fox restaurant located inside Lily Hall!
🔥 Inspired by Southern backyard barbecues with a rustic Spanish influence, Brother Fox cooks up its meals with soul specializing in a live fire outdoor kitchen. Chef Hernandez delivers the perfect combination of cuisines that speaks to our hearts and takes us back to our roots - Cuban family living in New Orleans. So incredibly delicious! Cannot wait to try more on the menu!
(Open daily for Dinner & Weekend Brunch)
🔥What we loved:
Appetizers: Low Country Boil “a la espana” and Pan con Tomate
Wow! This Low Country Boil totally plucked at our New Orleans heartstrings, at the same time the Pan con Tomate transported me back into my Cuban grandmother's kitchen. Both were perfection!
Entree: Blackened Redfish w/vegetables | Dessert: Churros w/caramel sauce
P.S. 🤫: Don’t miss Sister Hen Speakeasy for a nightcap! Step through the ice box at Brother Fox or take the back door and find the phone to make your way inside! Such a fun, themed bar with amazing hand crafted cocktails!
The hotel is located a few minutes away from historic downtown which is rich with the best local spots! We loved how Lily Hall includes a local's guide and is all about supporting their community!
