“Great location, Clean and Comfortable”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

We stayed at the Marquesa in March 2013 and found the location ideal for visiting the Old Town.
We had the standard room (no balcony) which was good but did not include breakfast and therefore we found the rate charged was a bit expensive (that being our only gripe).
The grounds were well cared for and coffee facilities were offered by the pool.
We did not use the pool or the restaurant as we were only staying for 2 days. There are lots of eateries and bars within walking distance.
We recommend a visit to the Butterfly and Nature Conservation Centre, the Old Town Trolley tours (not the train - It includes 2 days hop on, hop off tour of the key), a taste of the conch fritters (best ones we had from the food trailer near the Trolley Tours), a visit to Truman's Little White House, Hemingway Home and the spectacular and obligatory visit to Mallory Square at Sunset, the most beautiful sunset you will ever see in your life!!
Wish we had longer at Key West to explore it a bit more as we loved the atmosphere but maybe another time...

Thought this would be geared towards the older set, which it is popular with for sure, but the Marquesa excels at the subtle touches that make it best in class. Would do well in a place like South Beach, LA, etc. Solid across the board. Would stay again.

great room great service great location
did I mention this was a great place?

we ended up in the last room available for the dates so we didn't have a poolside porch but it was almost perfect
no need to rent a car in Key West - and if you want bikes the guys at the front desk can hook you up

refreshing cool tea in the courtyard in the afternoons - pools set amongst lush greenery - an oasis

I just hope I remember the room numbers of some of the other suites b/c we definitely want to stay here again

The Marquesa has a LOT going for it: Excellent service, friendly staff, prime location, gorgeous property, fantastic rooms, etc.. The absolute quietness you experience while relaxing at the pools is an amazing contrast to the party on Duvall street, which is just 2 short blocks away. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable and trouble free. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, serene, and utterly relaxing. The Cafe Marquesa is a fantastic spot for dinner, and we really enjoyed the continental breakfast which was delivered exactly when requested. Twice daily room servicing (ice bucket filled, new towels, etc,) was a nice touch, fresh linens daily, on and on. When we return to KW, there's no other place we'd consider staying...ever.

Close to Duval Street, but far enough away that you don't hear the noise. Staff was very helpful, they have an onsite free parking area. We were lucky enough to have a private porch with our room. The room itself was average size, as was, the bathroom. Really nice place to stay,
centrally located we were able to walk to all the attractions. The hotel has two pools and a restaurant attached. Loved the turn down service and morning paper as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private porch if available!

This is a great hotel that is at the same time private/quiet and yet close enough to Duval Street that you truly get the best of both worlds in Key West. The service is impeccable. Look forward to staying here again.

This is such a pretty little hotel that is in the middle of Key West.
The staff were most welcoming and helpful throughout our 4 night stay. The surroundings are gorgeous. Our room (26) was up on the terrace, was one of four that looked like huge beach huts, but beautifully furnished inside and most relaxing. They are absolutley spotless.
All around the grounds, the gardens are well maintained and clean and rules apply for the use of drinking and mobile phones which makes this a peaceful and relaxing for everyone. There are 2 pools: one cold and the other heated - bliss!During the day cold drinks were available on the pool side and breakfast coofee also served there.
The reception area has easy access to the main street and to the resturant next door.
Cars are parked off street in a private car park, which is accessable through the grounds.
We tended to eat out for breakfast, but a continental style breakfast is available in you your room for a small charge.
Duval street and Mallory Square are within easy walking distance for choices of resturants and bars aplenty!
Would highly recommend this little piece of heaven to everyone.

Room Tip: If room 26 is anything to go by then all rooms have been furnished to a very high standard. Outside...
