When you walk into the Gardens Hotel you will be taken back by it's mix of the tropics and beautiful southern charm. The staff is extremely friendly & knowledgeable. After the check-in is all done, they walk you around the beautiful and lush grounds and escort you to where you will be staying. They offer a great breakfast bar, Jazz... More

We love this place from start to finish. We stayed in a garden room and then moved to Cottage #2 for a second night - just to try it out. Both were exquisite - though the Cottage is definitely more quiet. I did notice the staircase can get creaky if little sounds bother you. But I completely enjoyed the rooms... More

What a gem! Beautiful grounds featuring tropical gardens, a gorgeous pool, and nice pool bar. The bartender Adam was great. Staff was accommodating and friendly. The room was spectacular. We stayed in one of the garden rooms. It was immaculate! I am very particular when it comes to a hotel room. I hate the "hotel room smell" and am especially... More

We booked this hotel since our favorite one was being renovated. We booked based on the Trip Advisor reviews. This was the perfect place. Well thought out things in our room, like umbrellas, soaps, a safe, refrigerator, coffee maker, TV, ceiling fan, good air conditioning and clean. The hotel itself is beautiful and well maintained. The staff was always friendly... More

Location, charm, friendly, clean, amenities, staff all deserve a pat on the back. This "garden" hotel across from the fire station is only a block off the heart beat of Kew West 0 Duvall St, but it feels like you are miles away. Quiet and feels secluded, but it is not. Duvall runs about 1 1/2 miles and this property... More

This is a great hotel just one block from Duval Street. The hotel is quiet, clean and comfortable. They have a small pool that's open 24 hours and a bar near the pool which is open for a few hours in the evening. They also have a pianist from about 5p-7pm. You are provided with a wine card where you... More

My friend and I both wanted a get away from the frenetic scene in Miami/Broward/WPB. We were tired, frazzled, and stretched too thin. So my friend booked The Gardens Hotel, and we took off for Key West. Both of us are Key West veterans. Separately we've done touristy, we've done sporty, and (maybe) we've done boozy. This time we were... More

i have written about the Gardens Hotel before, it is our favorite in Key West, great rooms, great setting, great location. One special treat there is the wine bar that dispenses very fine wines a glass at a time. The best part of the wine bar is the Sunday evening jazz. Jimmy Olsen is the pianist/vocalist who performs a wide... More
