We stayed here two nights for the first time and would definitely come back again. The location is so quiet and peaceful especially after walking noisy Duval Street on our way back from dinner. The European continental breakfast was delicious, we loved the whole ambience on the patio while eating breakfast: the lush landscaping, piped in relaxing piano music and...

We've stayed here at least 11 times. It's that wonderful! The staff can't do enough to meet your needs and the rooms are so comfortable. Since our last visit they have added Tempur-pedic foam mattresses. I've never slept on something so cool and comfortable. The new beach bags are nicer than ever: just add your suntan lotion and off you...

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 3 days after a wonderful Caribbean cruise. I can't say enough nice things about our stay. The location is very convenient yet offers quiet and seclusion as desired. The grounds are meticulously kept including the two heated pools. We stayed in one of the cottages and appreciated the extra space and...

The service, the rooms and the amenities were outstanding. Love this place! If you are looking for a quaint, quiet, beautiful place to stay, this is your place. 1 block from Duval. We highly recommend this place.

Fair warning: I haven't stayed anywhere else in Key West, so I have nothing else with which to compare The Gardens. Suffice it to say that the gardens, for which they are quite famous, are spectacular. The lovely pool surrounded by lush greenery and flowers, as well as tables for breakfasting, etc, is a veritable paradise. I guess what surprised...

How to respond to this. First let me apologize to you that your stay was less than perfect. As I always say we can only help if we know of the problem when it happens and not in a 3 star review after the fact. That said, our air freshener is a citrus spray just one spray is all it...

We just returned from our 2nd visit at Gardens Hotel, we tried something different this time , we stayed in their TreeTop room, it's one of their smaller rooms as I was told when I called to make our reservation. The room has a queen bed and is absolutely adorable with a private deck, a couple days were cooler than...

Beautiful hotel only two blocks from Duval street. It is at the quieter end of Duval so there in no noise. It really is a well maintained establishment with an extremely helpful staff. The only recommendation I would make is try to avoid the historic rooms one and three because the main entrance door is underneath and every time its...

Impromptu road trip to Key West with no plan or reservations. Drove around and were blessed with an available room at The Gardens. Spectacular location for walking around town and to walk to State Park beach and restaurants. Beautiful grounds and our room was perfect. Pool and pool bar, wine room, beach bag and towels and wonderful breakfast made this...

That is exactly how we felt during our one-week stay at The Gardens Hotel. Our room (Cottage #1) was delightful, the staff was friendly & helpful beyond what was expected, and the whole ambiance & appearance of the hotel was over-the-top.

The Gardens Hotel is an outstanding property, beautiful, charming, historic. The welcome is warm, the staff at reception helpful. The location is perfection, very near the heart of the action but in a peaceful neighborhood with wonderful classic Key West homes. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and beautifully supplied. The garden is magic, filled with art and creatures (tortoises, birds,...
