Travellers' Choice
Of all Key West hotels and restaurants, The Marquesa Hotel and Café Marquesa is the finest combination of a boutique hotel and casual restaurant Key West has to offer. Conveniently located in the center of the historic district of Old Town Key West, the Marquesa compound, with its two locations across the street from each other, offers three sparkling pools and lush interior gardens. Dinner at Cafe Marquesa will make your stay complete. Time slows down in Key West, while at the same time, you can ramp it up by walking one block to Duval Street where you'll find bars, restaurants and attractions that Key West is known for. The Marquesa is a quiet retreat which awaits those looking for luxury, privacy, excellent food and service.

Hotel's Favourite
This was our second time staying at Marquesa. Both times have been in 414 complex, which is beautiful and newly updated. Rooms are nicely decorated and have fridges, this one even had microwave, which was great for late night leftovers. Great location, quick 5-7 min walk to seaport, 3 min to middle of Duvall. Pool is nice, but kind of small- a little crowded this visit. But people seemed to be very courteous and would remove their towels from chairs when they were done to make room for others. Beautiful grounds, landscaping, etc. - very well maintained. Nice private parking lot just outside complex, which is $25/day plus taxes, but that is to be expected in this area… just glad parking is available. And we never had trouble getting a spot. My only complaint— the sound of doors slamming in the morning! We like to sleep in while in vacation, to maybe 9-10am. But around 7am each day the doors opening and closing starts and it’s quite loud/jarring inside the adjoining rooms. The room was otherwise very well insulated from outer sounds and I could only hear people talking in halls, etc if the door was open.

this was our third consecutive annual visit to the Marquesa. It is well located and the rooms are very comfortable and quiet (except for being in the airport flight path which covers all of Key West). Breakfast buffet could be upgraded. Rates have consistently climbed in the three years we have stayed at the Marquesa, to the point that we had resolved that this would be our last visit prior to arriving. But alas, when we stepped off the plane, that resolve melted away. Fortunately we were able to find a more reasonable rate for our 2025 visit online.

Wanted to love this hotel but it did live up to its billing. Planned a nice “date weekend” with my wife, but the hotel itself was mediocre. The room was adequate but nothing special (despite being called a premium suite). We could hear our neighbors above us every time they flushed the toilet (including waking us from sleep)….not their fault, but not sure why the sound of water running through the pipes was sooo loud. Good location with walking distance to everything in Historic Old Town. Continental breakfast was very disappointing especially given the resort fee that was charged. Will look somewhere else for my next getaway to Key West. For an upscale hotel they did little to provide a warm, individualized stay.

We apologize for falling short of your expectations during your stay. It's disheartening to hear that our premium suite didn't meet your expectations and that you experienced disturbances from neighboring rooms. Your feedback regarding the sound insulation and breakfast experience will be shared with our team for improvement. We understand your disappointment and regret that we were unable to provide the warm, individualized stay you had hoped for. Should you reconsider, we'd appreciate the opportunity to regain your trust during your next getaway to Key West.

The Marquesa is a lovely boutique hotel that is perfectly located within walking distance of shops, bars, the waterfront and the heart of Key West. We stayed in room 26 - a center room above the two swimming pools. The rooms are gorgeous with large beautiful bathrooms. The tall ceiling heights make the rooms feel airy. There are plenty of in room amenities - coffee, mini bar with a nice selection of drinks. The walls are thin. We heard the couple next door fighting first in the evening and then again very early the next morning. One call to the front desk had it sorted quickly. Kudos to the staff for a quick resolution. They have 2 pools, one heated, one chilly. They provide a nice continental breakfast but there is no lunch service or bar. We didn't try Cafe Marquesa, the dinner restaurant at the hotel, but heard that it was very good. There are so many great places to eat within a short walk from the hotel, so no having those option at the hotel wasn't an issue. Guests tended to wake early and "save" loungers at the pool. Many of them would do that early in the morning leaving the property for hours and returning to reclaim seats. For a small boutique property, this is a problem. Other places have taken steps to prevent guests from this type of behavior. I think if it becomes a bigger issue, this property should do the same. We would recommend and return to this property. It's perfect for a weekend getaway.

Can’t say enough wonderful things about the Marquesa. Peaceful and elegant oasis in bohemian Key West. Rooms were light and airy and perfect size. Staff were helpful and sweet. Lovely pools with self serve drinks. No room service per se but DoorDash worked fine on nights we didn’t want to go out. Looking forward to our next trip.

I have been staying here for over 20 years. Great location and atmosphere. Front rooms can be loud to traffic. Noble house is starting to nickel and dime you with resort fees. I am hoping they don’t ruin this great property
