Naples, perched on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, is famous for its high-end shopping, local culture, and sophisticated dining. But Naples is also an affordable family destination that appeals to nature lovers and beach aficionados.
Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South are the focal points for shopping in the historic downtown area. There are numerous art galleries, chic clothing boutiques, and home decor shops. And when it comes time for lunch or dinner or a late snack, the options are numerous and the cuisine is delectable.
Nestled on 125 tropical acres along the Gulf of Mexico, the Naples Beach Hotel is Southwest Florida's only beachfront hotel with onsite golf, tennis courts, and spa. This AAA Four Diamond hotel features roughly 300 non-smoking guest rooms and suites—each with a patio or balcony—many with Gulf of Mexico views. And parking is free and there are no resort fees!
Owned by the Watkins family since 1946, this historic hotel also features award-winning dining, a beachfront pool complex, and four retail shops. More than 34,000 square feet of function space and spectacular outdoor venues make the Naples Beach Hotel an acclaimed meeting and event destination, as well.
The hotel is now accepting reservations for Citygate Network’s REVIVE! event. The room rate is $135/night plus tax for a single/double. It is $25 more per night for triple occupancy and another $25 for quad. Click here to reserve your room(s). After clicking “book now,” if you would like to request a king or two queens, click on “additional requests” at the bottom left of the page.
Please be considerate and book only the number of rooms that you know you will need. Holding six and cancelling three a month out will prevent other members from attending that could have gotten in. And if later, your plans change and you are no longer able to attend the Naples event, please let us know so that we can cancel your registration.

St. Matthew’s House is an extensive evangelical ministry spread over three counties in Southwest Florida. It began in 1987 when a group of Naples parishioners followed a calling to bring food to a homeless group living in a nearby wooded area. Today, St. Matthew’s House continues to run the original emergency/transitional housing facilities and feeding ministry along with its well-known Justin’s Place Recovery Program. It also manages the Collier County jail chaplain service, six thrift stores, a full-service catering company, a housing development, and a retreat/conference center. Vann Ellison is the CEO.
Airport and Ground Transportation
The closest commercial airport to Naples is Southwest Florida International (RSW) in Fort Myers. It will take about 40 minutes to travel from RSW to the Naples Beach Hotel. For ground transportation, rental cars are a great option since there is free parking at the hotel. This will also allow you to travel locally in Naples without cab or Uber costs. We encourage you to connect with other Citygate Network members who you know will be attending, and plan to split rental costs.
If you don’t want to rent a car, here is a second option: MBA Airport Transportation provides taxi service to the Naples Beach Hotel for $70 one way for up to four people. Each additional person over four is $10. (Their vehicles hold six plus luggage.) MBA’s van service does not require a reservation from the airport, but to make a reservation from the hotel back to RSW, please visit their website at www.mbaairporttransportation.com or call them at (239) 482.2777. Mention Citygate Network to your driver and they will discount the $70 fee by 20 percent. The hotel is located at 851 Gulf Shore Blvd. North, Naples, FL 34102.
