My wife and I stayed during our US honeymoon in Juli 2012 for 5 nights at The Garden Hotel. We didn’t make a reservation and just walked in asking for a room as we arrived in Key West. The welcome was very nice and helpful. Rick was a perfect host and we felt like we are really just arrived in...

Few places on earth leave a lasting memory, but this small charming hotel just off Duval Street is a special place. From the luscious tropical gardens to the charming upscale rooms to a staff that brings back the "true" meaning of customer service, the Gardens Hotel won our hearts and a 5 star rating. Key West is full of shabby...

My husband and I traveled from Miami to Key West for a quick getaway. We had no hotel reservations upon arrival, and hoped to find a nice, cozy place near duval. Following a nice lunch we decided to "shop around" for a place to stay. We were worried we wouldn't find anything up to par in our price range. Our...

As the many other reviewers comment, this is a quiet, restful place, smack in the middle of the best location in town. The staff is wonderful - from Rick who greeted us, Tippi - bartenders Barbara, Billy and a special shout out to Sandra D... Martin who cooked our breakfasts and created an incredible yogurt martini. It's beautiful and tranquil....

The rooms are deluxe in the very best sense, the garden in which the hotel sits is sublime and tranquil, there is something beautiful to look at at every turn in the public areas and extraordinarily friendly and helpful service from absolutely everyone on the staff. It is handy to all the things that make Key West's Old Town special,...

We have been to The Gardens Hotel in Key West many times the last several years. It is such a beautiful property, with magnificent gardens and a beautiful pool. It is right downtown Key West, but you feel like it is very secluded from the hussle & bussle of Duval Street. It is always so quiet there. You don't even...

We found this hotel by reading Tripadvisor reviews. We spent five nights there and LOVED it! The hotel and grounds are very beautiful, and the pool is a relaxing place to spend time. I would recommend the room where we stayed, Carriage House Front, because of the covered private balcony overlooking the pool -- you can still be "at the...

We stayed at the Gardens Hotel in Key West for 6 nights. This is a lovely place, probably better described as a"home" rather than a hotel. Beatifully fitted out in the main areas and a wonderful pool, hot tub and pool-side bar. The staff are extremely helpful and polite. The hotel is located within walking distance of virtually everything in...

Thank you for your review. The changing of sheets issue concerned me so I did a little research. You may not be aware that we are a green hotel and change sheets every three days. For your stay they were changed on the 2nd of July. Yes, room three does get afternoon sun. We keep the window units handy for...

My wife and I had a great time here. The location is ideal. We took a cab from the airport and never needed a car to get to anything.
