Amid the hushed water sounds from the courtyard fountain sits this private retreat of lush tropical splendor...set apart from the frenetic tempo of Duval, you are caressed to a level of sensual relaxation by the pampered ambience of this experience. Your every expectation is met in a demure understated style which is getaway pleasure at its finest.
This is our fourth visit after staying at many of the other higher-priced offerings in the area.
We've been to the rest...now try the best!

Traveled to Key West for the Labor Day Weekend 2009. The Gardens Hotel was recommended by a friend. In addition, he recommended the room we stayed in which was the Carriage House Front. The room was wonderful however; we didn't spend much time in the room or at the hotel. With the limited time we had we spent most of our time sight-seeing, eating and drinking. Did I mention drinking?

It is centrally located and within walking distance of everything. The staff were friendly as well as all the other guests. Breakfast was included each morning and the service and food were great. We felt very comfortable and would recommend this hotel.

Note: We decided to fly into Miami, rent a car and drive to KW to save a little money on the flight. The drive down was OK however; driving back was a huge drag. In addition, we never used the car once we arrived at the hotel. My advice would be to spend the extra money and fly into Key West. Crab a cab to the hotel and your done.

My husband and I just returned from Key West, FL and The Gardens Hotel. Our accommodations were beyond our expectations. The room was wonderfully decorated, neat and clean; absolutely luxurious. We enjoyed relaxing on our porch overlooking the beautiful gardens and pool. It had all the amenities, Tiki bar and bathhouse. Our mornings began with breakfast on the veranda. On Sunday evening we had the pleasure of listening to a talented singer and jazz band who serenaded and delighted a pleasant crowd and the gardens with their charming music.
We are already making plans for our return and have invited our friends to do the same. One thing is for sure, you cannot go wrong if you stay at The Gardens Hotel. It is truly paradise!!

While visiting my mother in Miami my husband and I made a quick trip to Key West for some R&R. We felt welcome at the Gardens from the minute we stepped out of the car - we arrived during the Sunday jazz concert out by the pool and cooled off with a glass of champagne before we even unpacked our bags. We were staying in the Eyebrow Cottage, which decor-wise is loaded with Southern charm and was a lovely respite from hot and steamy July 4th weekend weather. The cottage is at the end of a one of the paths through the garden and there is some traffic noise from the street but because the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in I hardly noticed. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is a short walk from the Hemingway House and to the main drag along Duval. We would definitely stay there again.

The room was beautiful with every convenience you could think of, from umbrellas in the room to sun screen at the pool! Service was excellent - we were served a cocktail while we were relaxing in the pool. Breakfast and the grounds were more than you could ask for!
