Marquesa Hotel
Ranked #5 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2012

We just got back from staying at the Marquesa Hotel. We considered staying at one of the larger hotels but we decided we wanted something a little more personal. We went to Key West to get married and we couldn't have been happier. The service was perfect, the pool area was beautiful and most of all it was quiet and convenient for walking to resturants and other attractions. We came alone and I was helped into my wedding dress and then they took some pictures by the pool. We would go back in a second. One warning though is that this is an old restored building so there is no elevator so pack light! We ate at the restaurant and it was so good, they had little decorations for us on the table and sliced and served our small wedding cake.

Room Tip: High floors are hard to carry heavy luggage up

The Marquesa Hotel is the perfect Key West getaway - a lovely retreat from the crazy party scene just blocks away on Duval. The rooms are charming, the pool area is a perfect escape to laze away an afternoon, the private balconies are simply perfection and the hotel is quiet. And the staff is OUTSTANDING. Henry, in particular, was a delight to work with and consistently provided exceptional recommendations on everything from food to entertainment. Everything is close when you're in Key West, but the Marquesa's location is one of it's best selling points. Just blocks from Duval - yet you feel like you're in an entirely different part of town. If I find myself in Key West in the future - I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks for making this a great vacation, Marquesa Hotel team!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 23 - one of the suites. Lovely!

All we can say to our Tripadvisor friends - is stay at the Marquesa when visiting Key West. Location is perfect for walking all around town and yet quiet for being only two blocks away from insane Duval Street. The staff is fabulous and responsive. The grounds of the property are the beautiful, lush and serene. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, clean with basic furnishings. We had a second floor poolside room with a shared and spacious balcony.

We did a lot of walking around Key West during 4 full days we were there. Hotels near the southernmost point are way too far from center of town, and have lots of pedestrians and sometimes traffic due to the attractions near that area. Hotels along Truman Street are along a busy traffic and pedestrian street. Unless you like crowds and noise - avoid Duval for lodging. The Marquesa's location is perfect. There's a grocery, Faustos, across the street, and also a Walgreens on Duval just a handful more blocks away.

This will be the place we'll stay the next time we're in Key West!

This was our second stay at the Marquesa and we are pleased. We would have preferred a second floor room with a balcony like last time, however we are still pleased. The staff are friendly, pleasant, and welcoming. We enjoyed our complimentary glass of wine upon arrival, relaxed for a few minutes then hit the town for an early dinner. We will be back, and we will request a second floor unit or a unit with a balcony. Pleased!

My husband and I stayed at the Marquesa the first week in November to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We stayed at the lovely Marquesa hotel. What a great find!The hotel is tucked away about two blocks off of Duval so you don't hear the noise and craziness, but close enough to partake in the craziness..perfect location! The place is old but beautifully restored and our deluxe room in the main building was very spacious and comfortable. The service was outstanding. They really couldn't do enough for you. We've been to Key West before and stayed in one of the larger hotels, I prefer the Marquesa over the larger hotel...the staff knows their guests and it makes for a very pleasant stay..I'm looking forward to returning to the Marquesa...

We selected based on Trip Advisor and thought the Marquesa met and exceeded our expectations. Staff, room & location were perfect. The pool area was so relaxing...lots of trees for shade lovers as well as plenty of sun for sunbathers. Landscaping is particularly well done and I loved the orchids throughout the property. Very nice touch to offer ice water and iced tea complimentary all day. We had a late flight and appreciated the chance to sit by the pool and then use the shower facility. Staff was consistently positive and went out of their way to ask if there was anything we needed. A wonderful treat.
