“Second stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

This was our second stay at the Marquesa and we are pleased. We would have preferred a second floor room with a balcony like last time, however we are still pleased. The staff are friendly, pleasant, and welcoming. We enjoyed our complimentary glass of wine upon arrival, relaxed for a few minutes then hit the town for an early dinner. We will be back, and we will request a second floor unit or a unit with a balcony. Pleased!

hotel is a gem and the attached restaurant is a gourmet delight-this is an expensive resort-but worth the price-things are kept up to standards that very few hotels and restaurants offer-if you want the best-thios is it in key west!!!!!!!

My husband and I stayed at the Marquesa the first week in November to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We stayed at the lovely Marquesa hotel. What a great find!The hotel is tucked away about two blocks off of Duval so you don't hear the noise and craziness, but close enough to partake in the craziness..perfect location! The place is old but beautifully restored and our deluxe room in the main building was very spacious and comfortable. The service was outstanding. They really couldn't do enough for you. We've been to Key West before and stayed in one of the larger hotels, I prefer the Marquesa over the larger hotel...the staff knows their guests and it makes for a very pleasant stay..I'm looking forward to returning to the Marquesa...

We selected based on Trip Advisor and thought the Marquesa met and exceeded our expectations. Staff, room & location were perfect. The pool area was so relaxing...lots of trees for shade lovers as well as plenty of sun for sunbathers. Landscaping is particularly well done and I loved the orchids throughout the property. Very nice touch to offer ice water and iced tea complimentary all day. We had a late flight and appreciated the chance to sit by the pool and then use the shower facility. Staff was consistently positive and went out of their way to ask if there was anything we needed. A wonderful treat.

For a wonderful treat in Key West - Stay at the Marquesa. It truely is the most centrally located hotel in town!!! We stayed in room 7 on the 2nd floor of the main building - A very large room (by Keys standards) with king bed, 2 separate closets, 5 windows, 2 ceiling fans, central AC, 2 HD TVs, and seperate sitting area. Room layout and cleanliness were outstanding. Poolside had a table set up for complimentary coffee every morning, and ice water or tea during the day. The 2 pools were so tranquil and lovely, with both sun and shade seatings. The desk staff was consistently good in providing truely helpful recommendations and directions. Some onsite parking is available. There is such a wide range of accomodations in Key West; This one is definitely at the higher/more fancy end of choices so also more quiet and discrete but reasonably priced for like type establishments. I loved it!

Room Tip: We did not have any problems in the main building, but light sleepers may want to specifically book...

like most, we chose the marquesa based on tripadvisor reviews and are so happy we did so. only 1 block over from the very busy duval street but you would think you were worlds away- a perfect oasis. the service was incredible from all staff and i have never experienced room maintenance done so discreetly and quietly. we spent the 5 days we were in key west exploring on foot and it was always so lovely to return to walk through the serene lobby to the lush landscaping of the courtyard with its 2 pools and small waterfall area. There were always a choice of chaise lounges and patio furniture to select; some in the shade, some full sun.
Our stay was wonderful; we felt pampered and would recommend this hotel highly.

Room Tip: we chose a poolside room on the 2nd floor and it was perfect-one flight of outside stairs and we wer...

My Wife and I loved it here. The Staff is great, The Location is perfect and The Junior Suite was romantic and more then we expected. Clean towels by 2 gorgeous pools, Fresh Hot Coffee station early in the Morning, Newspaper at your door. Simply a wonderful place. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed certainly here in the USA. .
