“Wedding in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

The Marquesa Hotel was recommeded to us by the people at Key West Weddings by Aaron. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for our wedding/honeymoon. The staff was extremely helpful when we booked the room, by helping us find a service to steam and press our wedding clothes as well as recommeding an excellent hair salon for my updo! Mary in the front office promptly returned my calls and made many suggestions for dining and shopping in the area. We were also pleasantly surprised upon check in to find that we had been upgraded to the honeymoon suite (we had booked one of the other equally beautiful rooms)! On the night of our wedding we ate dinner in the hotel's restaurant. They had a special table reserved and decorated for us (we were married on a nearby beach with no family/friends in attendance...our idea for a relaxing second wedding). The food was amazing and the waitstaff very attentive. We are planning on returning next year to celebrate our anniversary. :) See our pictures of the beautiful grounds...

Room Tip: They were all beautiful, the whole facility was quiet and relaxing.

We ran down to Key West for a five-day getaway. The Marquesa was perfect-excellent service, great location, elegance without being stuffy.

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Marquesa in November for a little "getaway" before the holiday rush. We had no interest in staying at the big family resorts -- we wanted a place that felt like "Old Key West" within walking distance of restaurants and things to see and do. The Marquesa was perfect. A quaint small hotel, beautifully decorated and furnished, with a lovely pool and courtyard and never a time that there weren't plenty of lounge chairs to choose from. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and professional. We were in room #7, which was a spacious, sunny room that was so nice and comfortable, we actually enjoyed spending time just relaxing in our room! We had rented a car, but it stayed parked in the hotel's garage the entire time we were there because everything was such an easy walk from the hotel. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We had a Queen deluxe room on a corner and it was sunny and spacious -- plenty of room for 2 people...

Perfect location not far from Duval. The grounds are beautiful with most of the rooms enjoying a porch and lovely view of the pools and lush foliage. Our room was elegant, clean and well appointed. The staff was very helpful. Parking is easy as the property has a garage for guest use. Loved it!

From the minute we (group of 4 couples) entered The Marquesa Hotel through our departure the entire staff treated us with respect, politeness and as if we were guests in their own homes. They could not do enough to ensure that our visit was memorable. Also, being that check-out time was 12noon and our departure travel arrangements weren't until 5pm, the Management Team provided us with a room to store our luggage and use the facilities so that we could go out and continue our vacation until we were ready to depart. That is what you call going above and beyond.

My wife and I generally visit Key West about once every 3 years and The Marquesa Hotel is definitely at the top of our list for future stays.

My wife and I stayed at the Marquesa for 2 nights. Highly recommended. Excellent service. Jr Suite was well appointed and roomy. Continental breakfast on the private porch in front of the room--easy to take. Duval Street is only 2 blocks away, so you have access to all that but a beautiful, quiet, private place to stay. Pools are small but beautiful landscaping, comfortable chairs, quiet. Dinner in the attached restaurant was very good with a nice wine list. All in all, nothing but praise for this property and the staff.
