We had a cottage at the Gradens at it was wonderful. The layout is really functional, the furnishings are first rate, the staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. We have stayed in a number of places in Key West but this clearly has made it's way to the top of our list. Great location off of 1/2 block off Duval... More

The Gardens Hotel is a cozy diamond in Keywest's ring. There were the very first seconds when the warm welcome enlightened us with joy, the typical and quite luxury rooms, the beautiful garden with pool and bar and excellent service, the saloon with live piano music and the room aside equipped with a sophisticated wine tasting system, ....

We have now stayed at the Gardens hotel twice and have had two great experiences. The grounds are lush and beautiful and the staff is great. Surprisingly it is located in the heart of Key West,just a block from Duval. Once on the property it is quiet and serene(except for an occasional rooster crowing.) In the evening they have live...

This place is beautiful. Our stay was unforgettable. We were able to enjoy the extended new part of the hotel, a beautiful top room with living room area, kitchen, large bathroom and balcony. A small quiet pool also. Breakfast is delicious and staff is always very friendly, you can experience what people life is by living in Key West. A... More

We chose this hotel based on Trip Ad reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed in cottage 2, and were pleasantly surprised at how much consideration was given to every detail of the room and our stay, We were greeted by Will at the reception and after telling him about our stressful drive to KW, he helped us relax by...

I've been to key west several times and this is by far my favorite place I've stayed for several reasons. One aspect that sets it apart is it's phenomenal customer service. Guest services actually walked us to our room and gave us a mini tour of the grounds. Rooms are spacious and clean. Jeff at the bar creates spectacular drinks... More

The Gardens Hotel is a beautiful place with a great location. Everyone there was very helpful and responsive to our needs. The cottage was clean and modern. I loved that we could swim in the main pool while also having a separate, more private pool. The breakfast was very good. Be sure to check out the turtles roaming in the... More

My husband and I stayed July 2-5 and we absolutely loved it! It is a peaceful retreat, perfect for nature lovers and those that appreciate the finer things in life. We were welcomed with a glass of wine and the beautiful sound of live piano music. The room was comfortable and clean with picturesque views. Breakfast was always a delight!... More

Great location. Very helpful staff. Small parking lot. Great private pool open all night. Awesome mojitos from the bartender. After hours check is is definitely confusing. Make sure you make it there before 8. Close to duval and many restaurants. was our honeymoon planning to come back soon.
