“Best Place in Key West...”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

No comparison, the best place to stay in Key West is The Marquesa Hotel. I've been traveling to KW almost annually for the last 15 years and can honestly say, this is my favorite place..and my 5th time. The rooms, staff, pool area, are all excellent. I stayed in the Junior Suite (#1), and it was a fabulous-with separate living room; located on the 2nd level with it's own outdoor sitting area. The hotel is very up to date and exceptionally clean. The staff(Richard, thank you :) !) is very friendly and accessible for all your needs. It's also located close to restaurants/Duval/Mallory Square.

The Marquesa hotel was worth every penny. The staff pays attention to every detail and service was above and beyond what I have received anywhere else. It was quiet and clean and centrally located without the noise. We had a twin double room and there was more than enough room.

When I first rang to discuss booking I immediately felt this was going to be something special, and I wasn't disappointed. Everything about the Marquesa is relaxing, finding a hotel like this makes a holiday special We had a Junior Suite (No 20) which is situated just above the pool area and was very private with a beautiful terrace. The staff add to the magic, very accommodating but never intrusive and with their wonderful restaurant it would be easy to just put down roots (they are happy to deliver food from their menu to your room) but don't forget Duval Street is on your doorstep and there is plenty to see and experience.

We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: The junior suites are fabulous and worth the extra.

Outside looks like typical Key West house....inside are 27 rooms surrounding a well landscaped courtyard with two pools. Location just off Duvall in the quiet area but easy walk to most everything. Accommodations are first class though at times the walls seems a little too thin with noisy neighbors one night ....I think think this is unusual as most there tend to be older couples.
Great accommodation for off street parking. Easy walk to Sarabeth's for meals.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a great patio or porch area.....there are many.

Wonderful few days stay at the Marquesa. Easy walking distance to the action yet far enough away to offer some tranquility. Great service - nice pools, early morning coffee, drinks in the evening. Rooms clean and comfortable. We had a twin double room, which was a tad small for our family of four, but the suites/cottages looked fantastic.

Room Tip: If you are four or more then aim for a suite.

Looking at the Marquesa from the outside, you don't think much about it. Once you step into the "lobby," it's such a wonderful, cozy and welcoming place! Beautifully renovated and decorated, the Marquesa was everything we expected plus more! It has a gorgeous, green and lush courtyard with two pools and a jacuzzi), the room we stayed in was spacious, beautiful, clean and super comfortable. We didn't have a view, but we didn't spend much time in the room either. There is also a great restaurant, the Cafe Marquesa. The hotel is walking distance to Duval Street, The Southern Most Point, various bars and restaurants. Sean helped us with our check in and was very helpful and knowledgeable, suggesting places to go and what to do while in Key West. We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend the Marquesa!

great hotel in center of old town. rooms are spacious, clean, and service is outstanding. quieter type of hotel with more sedate clientele. walking distance to almost everything. is a bit more expensive than other hotels but not by much relating to what qualities it has. would highly recommend

Room Tip: junior suite poolside away from street seems ideal
