“A little bit of heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is such a pretty little hotel that is in the middle of Key West.
The staff were most welcoming and helpful throughout our 4 night stay. The surroundings are gorgeous. Our room (26) was up on the terrace, was one of four that looked like huge beach huts, but beautifully furnished inside and most relaxing. They are absolutley spotless.
All around the grounds, the gardens are well maintained and clean and rules apply for the use of drinking and mobile phones which makes this a peaceful and relaxing for everyone. There are 2 pools: one cold and the other heated - bliss!During the day cold drinks were available on the pool side and breakfast coofee also served there.
The reception area has easy access to the main street and to the resturant next door.
Cars are parked off street in a private car park, which is accessable through the grounds.
We tended to eat out for breakfast, but a continental style breakfast is available in you your room for a small charge.
Duval street and Mallory Square are within easy walking distance for choices of resturants and bars aplenty!
Would highly recommend this little piece of heaven to everyone.

Room Tip: If room 26 is anything to go by then all rooms have been furnished to a very high standard. Outside...

We had stayed at The Marquesa the first time about a year after it opened. It was a great place to stay after a very stressful work year. Well it took some time to get back, but it’s still a great place to stay.
It’s close to everything but a quiet oasis in the Keys.
The check in was quick and the staff was always friendly and accommodating during our 3 day stay. The room we had was spacious and comfortable. It was nice to seat out on the balcony and have a glass of wine before wandering off to one of the many excellent restaurants in the town.
For us it’s to only place to stay in Key West.

Room Tip: Room 24 or 25 are our favourites.

I don't have much to add to the other reviews, they consistently reflect the terrific time we had here. From the moment we pulled up to the time we checked out everything was exceptional and every staff member we encountered just what you and their boss would hope they would be - friendly, attentive, and helpful. To top it off the location is superb. It worth the drive to Key West just to stay here.

My husband and I stayed at the Marquesa for three nights and four days earlier in March. From the moment we stepped on the property, we felt relaxed and welcomed. We drove from Fort Lauderdale airport along the Keys, so we were tired from the trip, and appreciated the warm welcome with the small tour of the grounds and glasses of wine. The service at the Marquesa is a perfect balance between helpful and friendly, but not overwhelming or intrusive, which was ideal for a small property. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and was happy to help with setting up excursions or restaurant reservations. As others have mentioned, on Saturdays, all guests are invited to enjoy a wine and cheese reception by the pool, which was lovely to meet the other guests, walk around the pool area, look at the hanging orchids...

We stayed in one of the rooms right by the non-heated pool (there are two pools -- a heated pool and a non-heated pool) -- our room was on the ground level and had a porch with chairs and a table overlooking the pool. We sat out on the porch in the mornings enjoying the complimentary coffee (after 10 am, there is complimentary water and iced tea by the pool) and reading the newspaper that was delivered to our room each morning. We loved the decor of our room -- all blues, greens, and yellows and lovely furniture/finishings. The bathroom was quite large with marble floors and all the amenities you would need. There was complimentary wifi and also a printer available for printing out boarding passes and such. Overall, the grounds were beautiful and a wonderful retreat.

The location couldn't have been more ideal. It is right in the middle of old Key West, but still tucked away enough to be quiet. Everything we wanted to visit was within an easy walk. The Marquesa has complimentary on-site parking, which is first come first serve. This was ideal for us because we wanted to have a car to drive along the Keys to and from Key West, but while in Key West, wanted a place to leave the car and walk around.

We would definitely recommend the Marquesa and plan to come back! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room by the pool, which we found to be quiet and relaxing

We stayed at the Marquesa for three nights in Feb2013.From the moment you arrive you know this place is special.Large ,comfortable,calm room with a lovely balcony overlooking the heated pool.Beware the other pool is only for the brave or warm blooded.Enjoy a coffee ,iced tea or a chilled water in the lush gardens.Meet the other guests at a welcoming cheese and wine.Cafe Marquesa next door well worth a visit .. Cocktails a treat.Go out for breakfast at the Banana Cafe on Duval or Sara Beth's nearby for great service.All the sights are a short stroll away yet the buzz of the tourist trail never disturbs the calmness of the Marquesa.After a hectic night out you cannot beat this place to recover your mojo!

Room Tip: I would think all rooms are good but overlooking the pool is my choice.

We stayed at the Marquesa for three nights in March, and were impressed from the moment we saw the building, and were impressed even further with our greeting. After being shown to our lovely room and having the hotels amenities explained we were offered a complimentary glass of wine, which we enjoyed on our large balcony. The main building of the hotel ( in witch we stayed ) is a house of historic interest, and the whole place has the feeling of staying in a family home. The location is perfect for exploring Key West on foot and there is lots of complimentary parking on site. Everything was spotlessly clean and all the staff couldn't have been more helpful. All in all a wonderful stay in a wonderful hotel.

I stayed at the Marquesa in March 2013. The staff was amazing...especially Ken! They greeted us a glass of wine and a smile. Easy to walk to Duval and close to great restaurants. Really saved a lot of taxi money by staying here because it is so close to everything. You can walk to Mallory Square in less than 8 minutes. I frequent Key West and will come back to this hotel again. Accommodations are very nice....small property....quite...no kids...quaint. Pool is surrounded by lush greenery.

Room Tip: Room with a porch
