You know you are at a fantastic hotel when you are greeted upon check in with a glass of champagne, given a short personal tour of the amenities and escorted to your room. The grounds are lush, filled with exotic statuary and wonderful history. The entire property is beautiful, including our room. Upon arrival you receive a wine card that...

My wife and I stayed four nights at The Gardens Hotel but wish it could have been forty nights! Their attention to detail is some of the best we've experienced in our travels. The location was also perfect... just half a block from the restaurants, bars, and shops of Duval St., yet the serenity of the lush grounds is always...

Secluded but close to downtown. Beautiful landscape makes you feel like your on tropical island. Pool Bar is great place to unwind and relax. Rooms are excellent and spacious. The wine bar was unique and a great way to taste a wide variety of wines. parking is tight, but it always is that way anyplace in Key West.

We stayed in cottage 4, which was comfortable, private and quiet. It was our first visit to Key West. The innkeepers made us feel so welcome. Breakfast was delicious. We love the location, which is just far enough from the chaos on Duval, but within easy walking distance to it when we want to experience all of that scene. When...

Off the main street but still close enough to feel like you are able to enjoy the KW experience. Like being on a tropical island. Gracious staff, plantation feel makes you feel like a welcome guest.. Various accommodations as in a guest house. Nice breakfast either indoors or outside. Pricy with a minimum stay but so much better than commercial...

A lovely place to stay near to the heart of downtown and the harbor. Yet, the large gardens and comfortable room made for a quiet and restful stay. The "Continental" breakfast was substantial. The staff and owner, Kate, were welcoming, thoughtful and helpful. Even the resident large turtles were social! In-depth research of alternatives suggested that the hotel was reasonably...

We stayed one night at the Gardens hotel..and were sorry that we couldn't stay longer. From the staff to the grounds to the rooms, the hotel is wonderful. While the location is only a block from Duval, the grounds are a quiet oasis from the hubbub that is key west. The room was thoughtfully appointed, the gardens were beautiful, breakfast...
