The Gardens is truly an welcome oasis from the crowded and noisy Duval Street. Elegantly appointed, spacious rooms with all the amenities one could ever desire. Delightful, beautiful garden paths to walk, talk to the birds, turtles, and Callie, the cat! Delicious and more than ample breakfast bar is included. Small, quiet pool and jacuzzi area where you feel like...

This place was a real find. Just a short walk from Duval St, it is a wonderful , quiet refuge with beautiful gardens, brick paths, flowers, fountains, and a nice bar and pool. The rooms are spacious, quiet, and comfortable, each with generous porch space surrounded by gorgeous blooming flowers and trees. The staff adds to the ambience - they...

The hotel website is an accurate depiction of place, with several buildings with rooms spread around a campus with trees. a pool, outdoor bar and lush vegetation. Service is great and attentive, with excellent dining suggestions. A very good hot and cold breakfast is included. A self service wine bar with good selection of wines available until late evening.

We only planned one night in Key West. After checking out some reviews, I decided on the Gardens Hotel. The purpose of our trip to Key West was mostly for the drive (best part was between Islamorada and Key West) and to spend a day visiting Key West. We did not need a place on the beach since we were...

My husband and I took a quick and much-needed break this past weekend. Having had done his "homework", my husband booked this quaint, little inn because of the reviews and its proximity to everything. He couldn't have chosen better if he tried! When we went to check in, instead of just taking our information and handing us the keys, we...

Thank you for your review! We do host several events throughout the year and try to keep our guests informed via confirmation letters, newsletters and the like. Our Jazz on Sundays is a main stay for locals and guests alike! Last week Broadway diva Terry White stopped in and sang a few songs! The other event during your stay was...

Sunday evening from 5-7pm offers great jazz in the garden. Offers wine tasting and bar. Music and ambience great, but don't ask for drinks beyond the very basic. Can't make a cocktail to save their life. Common problem in KW unfortunately. Stick to wine or beer and you'll have a great evening.

I find your review quite interesting. Key West has one reputation as a adult beverage town, another reputation as a great arts destination, and of course our reefs. Many wonderful attractions bring guests from all walks of life. With regard to drinks, Key West usually over pours. Here at the Gardens Hotel we offer a d'Vine Wine Bar with over...

Stayed St Pattys weekend. Place is very nice and tropical, nice pool and breakfast, loved the wine room and employees are very nice. A few negatives, we stayed in treetop room which was very nice with nice balcony. However when I opened the closet, the door handle fell off and bathroom door did not shut unless you slammed shut.

Thank you for your return visit! From time to time we do have to do maintenance that is required, this case being brick work, electrical and water lines. We had to get this done in two days and hence had the crew working fast. The Canary Palm is a center focal point of the Gardens and has to be worked...

This place was absolutely wonderful. It is only a short walk from Duval Street and therefore perfectly located, you don't hear the noise of the party on Duval, but can walk there in just a few minutes. The place is a little garden oasis. Very beautiful and perfect to relax. All the staff members are very friendly and helpful, and...

The Gardens hotel exceeded our expectations. Check in was great with a welcoming glass of prosecci. We took advantage of the coupon on Trip Advisor for the free bottle of wine.

On a lark, my wife and I drove two hundred miles (with the top down and weather cooperating) for a two day one night stay. Just the drive to Key West was an adventure. We read other thoughtful reviews so planning a Sunday night stay with Jazz and wine by the pool sounded perfect. It was, and it was enjoyable...
