The Gardens Hotel, is a tranquil oasis of relaxation and indulgence. The service and amenities are second to none. The manager, Joseph, could not have been more welcoming or friendly. His obvious priority was the well being and comfort of his guests and yet he achieves this without fuss or being 'over the top' or obsequious. We enjoyed our stay...

My husband and I left single digit weather in Ohio to celebrate our anniversary at The Gardens Hotel. We were not disappointed with either the weather or this fabulous hotel! We spent 4 nights in the Carriage Room 4A, located directly over the cabana bar. Beautiful room with a beautiful view of the pool, gazebo and the lush grounds. We...

This was our second stay at The Gardens Hotel and it was every bit as wonderful as our first. Starting from the check-in you immediately feel welcome. All the staff are great and really friendly. The room was great and you even have a semi private porch just outside the room if you stay in one of the Garden rooms....

Clean, friendly, great complimentary breakfast. Adults only. Small. detail oriented. Great location. Nicely appointed rooms. Pool is nice and has a cabanna bar. Easy walk to everything in KW but off of Duval and quiet in a lush garden setting.

A simply perfect hotel. A 3 night stay in Cottage 1. The cottages are adjacent to the main building and ours has a separate living room and bedroom, with a large veranda and a shared patio, which no one else seems to use. A very short walk to Duval Street makes it a perfect location. The gardens are just stunning...

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Gardens Hotel last month. I don't know that there's a hotel I've enjoyed more. The location is just perfect. None of the Key West attractions are more than 5 or 6 blocks away, so you can walk everywhere you wish to go. Our room was at the back of the resort...

This was our second stay at The Gardens. It was as lovely as I remembered. Our room was lovely, the location is perfect, the complimentary breakfast was delicious, and Joseph was exceptionally helpful. Our friends stayed at two other hotels, and The Gardens by far was the most beautiful. We will always stay here!!

We booked our extended weekend in February based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The rooms were clean, the gardens were interesting, and the pool was peaceful and inviting. What we did not know is that the hotel also hosts live music on weekends. The hotel has a conservatory like piano room that opens to an area...

Thank you for your review! I am glad you mentioned the music. We have live piano Wednesdays through Saturdays and on Sunday's the Jazz In The Gardens is one of the most fun things to do.

This is a gem of a hotel. It is near Duvall, but when you are at the hotel you feel totally secluded. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast is amazing.
