This place is a National treasure and should be on everbodys bucket list to visit. Absolutely beautiful grounds. Lush botanical garden mixed with sculptures of all style and age. The staff was professional and friendley, making me feel as though I was a frequent guest. There is a small and private poolside bar for the guests and a quiet hammock tucked away in the garden for afternoon reading. Centrally located and amazingly quiet. It gets all the stars I can give it.

My husband and I spent two days at The Gardens Hotel in Key West. We were blown away at how beautiful the room and the grounds were, how hospitable the staff was, and how many little details had been thought of to make guests comfortable. We made use of the complimentary breakfast, the robes for coming and going to/from the 24-hour pool, the glasses of champagne upon arriving, the umbrellas when it rained our final morning, and just sitting and enjoying the lush tropical grounds. The room itself was spacious and decorated beautifully, and the bed and linens were so comfortable. And the location is within walking distance to practically everything, yet tucked away and quiet. I would recommend The Gardens Hotel to anyone visiting Key West!

My husband and I went to The Gardens Hotel for our honeymoon and it was beyond what we hoped for. The staff are kind, warm and welcoming. The grounds are so beautiful, with extraordinary gardens filled with so much to explore. The pool is gorgeous, and available for 24/7 use. The pool bar is staffed by delightful bartenders. Every morning they cook a delicious breakfast for you, for free! If your an animal lover, they have a cat, birds and giant African tortoises! Anything you’d like to do, the staff will arrange for you. And when you step out, your 1 block from duval street. This place is super clean, accommodating and romantic. Adults only. It was the best experience I’ve had. 10/10 and worth every penny. We highly recommend!

Very grateful for the opportunity to stay at The Gardens Hotel, as we booked their last room. Staff was welcoming, kind and organized. The room was extremely clean and elegant. The grounds were lush with greenery and florals. Appreciated the gated parking also. Can’t say enough other than we have been telling everyone to book a stay (even strangers while still in Key West😉). We plan to return!

Decided at the last minute to run down to Key West with my daughter in law to celebrate her birthday and also do a little work (we do work for Monroe Co). Found The Garden Hotel's wonderful reviews and decided to give it a try. We are so VERY glad we did. It is a truly lovely place. Lush tropical foliage abounds and it's so private and secluded, yet in the middle of everything. Secure parking and we felt very safe walking everywhere within several blocks in every direction. Our unit (#16) was very spacious as well as beautiful and well appointed. There were even umbrellas for the summer rains that blow thru almost daily, this time of year. Breakfast was delicious and just hope they have the Key Lime beignets while you're there! Great wine room, poolside bar and nightly live music. I have stayed in at least 8 hotels/resorts in Key West, Marathon and Islamorada over the last 2 years and The Garden Hotel is by far the nicest place I've stayed. Can't wait to return.

We chose this hotel because of its reviews. I lived up to its expectations. All the staff was really nice. The hotel was situated close to Duval street, Beach, and great restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

I cannot express how PLEASED I was during my stay at the Garden Hotel. The hostess was amazing from check in to check out. From the complimentary wine, to the complimentary breakfast, self serving wine cellar, it was truly an amazing experience. The ambiance made me feel like I was at home. Warm, cozy and decorated with love. The entire property is breathtaking. If I could it bonus stars I would! If you are planning a trip to Key West and want to be in the heart of all the action of Duval Street, yet feel like you are on a secluded garden oasis, this is definitely the place to stay. I will be returning.
