My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in the Tree Top Room in September. Really great 5 day stay. I recommend taking your morning coffee to one of the little nooks tucked away in the garden, maybe near the birdcage. Very relaxing way to start your day. The breakfast was great - I loved the cranberry bagels. We... More

My husband and I selected The Gardens Hotel based on other Trip Advisor reviews and we're SO glad we did! From the first moment we arrived, we felt like honored guests. When we weren't certain where to park, I called in and Rhoda came out to our car to give us the options. Both lots are very small (I suspect... More

The hotel is absolutely the best in Key West. Situated a block off Duval Street and pretty much half way between the north and south points of Key West, it's perfect for getting to wherever you want to go. The hotel is surrounded by lush foliage and beautiful gardens, and is very private. Breakfast is available everyday and was very... More

The hotel is in the midst of Old Town and within walking distance to almost anything you would want to see. The hotel is small and lovely nestled in a beautiful garden setting. The service was amazing and breakfast buffet(included) was very nice.The pool area small but lovely with a staffed pool bar. We stayed in The Elbow cottage with... More

The property itself is gorgeous, nicely decorated rooms and with extras like the wine, jazz in the evenings and a shaded and quiet pool. A very adult, sophisticated ambiance but without the formality. It may be trite, but the thing that makes the Gardens stand out though is the people. Everyone from the owner, general manager and the staff is... More

We stayed 4 nights at The Gardens Hotel. We had a nice room that was surprisingly quiet for being so close to Duval Street. The pool, bar, and gardens were kept up nicely. The room was decorated nicely and the employees were very nice and extremely helpful.

Our stay here was great. Very friendly staff, beautiful grounds, no little kids running around, and a self serving wine bar - Could you ask for more? The only problem is that it is so great that everyone will book here and there won't be any availability when we come back because we will definitely be back.

The Gardens is not your usual hotel. It's quaint and quirky (some may say old fashioned), but it's a lovely place to stay. It has a very personal and homely feel. The rooms are spacious, beautifully furnished and have everything that one could need. It is located in a quiet backwater just off the famous Duval Street, so the sleep... More

Thank you for your review and comments on our wine gallery! We understand when you have to leave early and miss our complimentary breakfast however, there are many options open at 6am within a few blocks. Our favorite stop is at MM 19 for Baby's coffee! More

Welcomed with cold prosecco an a smile we immediately felt at home in this old world charm of a hotel. We were given tour of the hotel, even helped us park. Located just off Duval St were the...
