“Tomorrow would not be too soon to return to the Marquesa”
Reviewed February 16, 2009

My husband and I visit the Marquesa every year. Everyone from the General Manager, office staff, restaurant manager and her staff, housekeepers and grounds personnel greet us with open arms. It like being welcomed back to your hometown but in a much warmer climate.

The property is as beautiful and well kept as any you will find. The service is outstanding, the restaurant recommendations always on target. Requests are always greeted with a smile and handled with speed and efficiency.

After a recent stay of nine nights this year, I changed our return flights because I just couldn’t bring myself to leave the Marquesa just yet. My husband and I never check-out without booking next year’s reservation. That way, good year or bad, we know that we have at least 10 days of perfection to look forward to!

  • Liked — The beauty and tranquility of the property.
  • Disliked — I have no complaints about the staff or accommodations at the Marquesa!

I was torn between staying at a big resort type hotel with views of the beach vs. the Marquesa, but we are so glad we stayed at the Marquesa! It is a great boutique hotel in the middle of Old Town, only a block or two away from Duval and the staff is extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated, would love to go back again some time.

We have just experienced a wonderful stay, with friends, at the Marquesa. As people have already said this is a beautiful, quiet oasis in a great location in Key West. Once you return to the hotel you can leave all the hustle & bustle of KW behind you, this gives you the brilliant option of when to party & a retreat when you have had enough. Magic.
On arrival at the hotel we were welcomed warmly & mentioned that friends would be joining us in a few days. On hearing this, our host then managed to "shuffle" a number of rooms to enable us to enjoy adjoing rooms & share a deck. No fuss, no bother & a brilliant result, we were then able to idle a number of hours away in conversation in this great location.
Not only is the hotel fabulous, rooms are suberbly decorated & equiped [ what a treat to enjoy an "own use" refridgerator rather than worry about moving mini bar "stuff" around ], the staff are friendly & efficient. Morning coffee was always delivered promptly & politely & the ice bucket was always kept full. What a great touch. Towels were changed "as soon as you wet them". What a wonderful change to all this leave them on the floor business.
Definately the best place that we have stayed in KW .

  • Liked — The attention to detail, the thought that had gone in to making the accommodation "user friendly".

We stayed at the Marquesa in late Oct. along with another couple. This is a first class hotel! Our room was beautifully decorated and spotless. The employees & service was first rate! The grounds were imaculate and serene. Our friends stayed in a suite the was beautiful as well. The Marquesa Hotel is a quiet escape from the party on Duval St. but convinent to everything. We walked everywhere. Upon our return next year we will opt for a room in the rear of the hotel. No fault of the hotel, the street noise was a little much for us. We are from the country.

My family and I took a trip down to the keys from Miami this past weekend. We enjoyed our stay so much! The check in was personal, and the agent was extremely knowledgable of the hotel and the surrounding area. We were offered a complimentary glass of wine upon arrival, which we gladly accepted. The inside of the room was extremely clean, and went well beyond our expectations. We had a patio outside of our room which we used quite frequently for sitting outside and receiving our continental breakfast each morning. When we return to Key West, we will definitely be staying at this hotel again!

  • Liked — I loved the hotel room. It was clean, elegant, and comfortable.
  • Disliked — There was nothing that I disliked about this hotel!

We have been visiting Key West for nine years and have stayed at some of the best resorts in the island. The Marquesa Hotel is located in the middle of Old Town but is very, very quiet. The two swimming pools were very relaxing and the junior suite exceeded our expectations. The staff was professional and very understanding when our luggage did not arrive with our flight. Service is just as important as the property to us and both were just outstanding. Don't miss Cafe Marquesa for dinner. We can't wait to return.
