“Beautiful oasis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Stayed here for one night (February 17, 2014) and loved it. Beautiful room with wonderful linens and bed. Two gorgeous pools surrounded by lush plantings. Friendly and helpful staff. Quiet retreat just a block off Duvall. Will definitely stay here the next time in Key West and I hope that is soon!

Stayed in a jr suite that was beautiful and spacious. Had continental breakfast at the pool, great blueberry banana bread!
Joe very friendly at front desk. Two pools one heated. A little expensive but the nicest place in key west
Rooms seemed brand new they were so clean

It was a perfect stay. The rooms were well appointed, the grounds a tranquil oasis and the staff always helpful. We were right in the middle of town so we parked the car and walked everywhere. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

Make sure you are aware, however, that they do not have parking spaces for all of the rooms. We were lucking enough to get a spot, but otherwise you may be hunting for an alternative.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Marquesa while attending a wedding in Key West, mainly due to the great TripAdvisor reviews. We were very pleased with our stay overall.

From what I understand, the rooms can be quite different. We were given room 14, which is on the top floor and is a pretty large room. Even though the house seems older, it is still very modern and has modern amenities, including free wireless internet (and a business center with even faster wired internet and printing capabilities).

My wife enjoyed lounging by one of the two pools. One pool is heated and the other is not. They are not very large but since the hotel is small, it was never an issue. When we checked in, our room was not ready yet, but it only took 10 minutes or so and we were good to go.

There are a lot of great things that people have already mentioned in other reviews, so I'll just briefly bring them up: great service, genuinely nice people, great location (real close to all the action but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing), and free wireless internet. The only things I'd criticize are: no food included at all (there is a grocery store one block away though), no hot tub, no fitness center (you can run outside though!), and an overall expensive rate. I was also hoping for free bike rentals, like some of the other local properties offered. The Marquesa did not have bikes but did offer to help you rent one from a local company. If you check other similar properties located close by, they are not CRAZY expensive, but you do pay a premium for the Marquesa. Is the Marquesa worth the premium over other local places. Probably. But the crowd is older so if you are a party animal this place is probably not for you.

Room Tip: Our room 14 faced Fleming and was mostly quiet, but on Monday morning the garbage men came early and...

It was a surprise, how service can be managed in a decent and friendly way, in our room we felt just like home. They took notice of us.
The hotel is situated in the middle of Key West, only a few steps to old harbour, Duval street, Mallory square and all the other attractions.
Of course we will return!

We had tried to book a room at the Marquesa first and they did not have any rooms available however, on a hunch I called the hotel while we were in Key West. Viola, a junior suite was available! We checked out of Pier House (eww) and into the charming Marquesa. So much better. I am particular about everything and I was very pleased with the accommodations.

This is our sixth time staying here. A beautiful setting with very well furnished individual suites, most with their own terraces, overlooking two swimming pools. The service is effortlessly good but without being showy. And very well located.
