Marquesa presents itself in a bit of an understated way. You could easily drive by the intersection and not notice the tasteful blue building or cafe. Inside the courtyard, the garden pools provide a welcome oasis from the busy downtown "old town" Key West.
Only 2 blocks from Duval, and a few more from the Front Street area with the most restaurants, it's an ideal destination. The garden pools (one chilly one heated) are enhanced by a nice cascading brick waterfall, lounge chairs, free morning coffee, afternoon ice tea and ice water. We spent a lot of time lounging and reading in the tranquility. Our room was very tastefully furnisned with a very comfortable couch, two leather arm chairs, a spacious bathroom, with the king size bed screened a bit from the living area by a swag diagonal half drape. Very nice accomodations, although the street traffic is noisy and the neighboring roosters provide a wakeup call. The staff (especially the front desk staff) are exceptionally helpful, professional and friendly. I observed a staff member stopping by the pool to inquire about the day's activities of a couple exceptionally well behaved children. We opted for breakfast on our porch every morning, from a continental menu that was more than far from full service, but more than adequate, and reasonable. Overall a great place to stay, perfect location to hit Duvall Street no matter which direction (north or south) you're planning on walking. You can easily cover all of old town from here without needing to move your car from the lot or garage on property. We enjoyed our 4 nights here and recommend it highly. There a not any real activities on property to keep a young family occupied.
