All the amenities you would expect of Gardens Hotel, great jazz band Sunday afternoon, Close to Duval St, but without the noise. One small concern was the rather ordinary breakfast. Had same thing everyday we were there.

My husband and I left single digit weather in Ohio to celebrate our anniversary at The Gardens Hotel. We were not disappointed with either the weather or this fabulous hotel! We spent 4 nights in the Carriage Room 4A, located directly over the cabana bar. Beautiful room with a beautiful view of the pool, gazebo and the lush grounds. We...

Located a block off Duval Street, truly paradise in the midst of a vibrant vacation destination. Beautiful gardens. Sunday jazz by the pool. Top notch service. I will go back anytime I make it to Key West.

The rooms are just perfect and grounds are something you will always remember. Staff is just as friendly as you could get. Located within walking distance to most attractions. The ones most people go to key west for.

Booked at the beginning of January (5th-9th) to get out of the cold and as an anniversary getaway 4 day weekend. Location was fantastic - close to Duvall street but very quiet. We stayed in Cottage 1 which was well decorated and very relaxing. Enjoyed the privacy of the cottage pool several times during the stay which was great. Front...

This hotel is absolutely delightful. Just spent a week there celebrating my birthday and wished we could have stayed longer. This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. The rooms are a good size with lovely verandahs, and the gardens are idyllic, as described an oasis in the bustle of Key West. Kate and her team are lovely....

Spent four nights at this B+B. Lives up to its name as it is close to all the action yet surrounded by extensive tropical flora. Rooms spacious, beds large and soft, bathrooms have lots of counter space and nice amenities. Breakfasts satisfying if somewhat limited assortment, and you can sit to eat it in the most beautiful garden/pool space. Staff...

We stayed in one of the courtyard rooms and found it very comfortable and quiet. The fountain in the middle of the courtyard provided a restful place to sit and read. The heated pool is small and mainly unused, probably as the clientele is a bit older and young children are not permitted. The breakfast is very good with a...

Our family had the most wonderful stay at the Gardens Hotel in Key West. The rooms were cozy and lovely. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and they had a wonderful jazz quartet by outside by the pool on Sunday around 6pm. The management went out of their way to be so helpful! Can't wait to return in the near future....

This hotel is a little pricey but you are in the Keys and the service is awesome. The owner was on site. Kate is personable and a lady whom I would love to get to know. Our room was in the guest house with the private pool which was amazing. We were on the second floor of the guest house....
