The Gardens is like a lush oasis away from the crowd.The breakfast buffet is a delightful way to start the day to be enjoyed around the pool or on the back porches. The entire staff is friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Manager Jim Marquardt is so personable and welcoming. Rich the concierge greeted us with sincere warmth and concern....

We are sadly saying goodbye today to The Gardens Hotel and the wonderful people that work there who made our stay so memorable. From the minute we checked in, and throughout our stay, everyone there went out of their way to accommodate our needs. From suggestions of where to dine, to things to see and do, we can't say enough....

Shawn and myself Kelley Lauer enjoyed ourselves tremendously. For throwing this together at the last moment worked out very well. Lets start off by saying we have meant the nicest folks that I would love to call friends during our short stay.

Simply loved the natural gardens and life surrounding this beautiful property. Staff is super friendly, clean rooms and beside the ocational neighbor walking (next door) and wall noises, this place was great. Loved the wine bar and breakfast. We will surely be back.

My husband and I booked a long weekend getaway at the The Gardens Hotel based on its location and reputation for understated elegance and customer service. Unfortunately, 12 hours before we were supposed to board the plane down to Florida, we had a family medical emergency and had to cancel our entire trip. I explained the situation to the hotel...

Hard to add to what has been said in the other reviews. Great place - Treetops room is private with a lovely sun-trap terrace. Gardens are relaxing and the pool perfect. Marked down slightly due to a few cockroaches - but it's tropical and they had the room 'treated' during the day, and we got another bottle of complimentary wine....

After travelling for over 24 hours and driving from Key West airport to the hotel and only getting lost once (our GPS was not the best) arriving at the Gardens was fantastic, relaxed check in and the team helped getting our tours sorted for us while we checked in (we were only in Key West for the day) the property...

Everyone raves about this place for a reason. This is a boutique hotel with a family feel. Most of the staff we met have been here for quite a while. They feel a connection and pride with this charming place. They greeted each other every morning, when I observed them, with as big of a smile as they greeted their...

If you want an amazing place to stay in Key West, there is no other place than the Gardens Hotel!

Just as we did last year, we came to Key West after 3 days in Islamorada, only last year we blundered by staying at Southernmost On the Beach, which is a nice hotel, but not the scene for us. This year we wanted a quieter, more central location, and we got just that. The grounds here are beautiful, pool is...

Sometimes a review strikes me as very interesting. The Tree Top room as well as all of our guest rooms have current photographs on our web site to assure the guest they will be happy with their stay.
