My wife and I recently stayed at the Marquesa while attending a wedding in Key West, mainly due to the great TripAdvisor reviews. We were very pleased with our stay overall.
From what I understand, the rooms can be quite different. We were given room 14, which is on the top floor and is a pretty large room. Even though the house seems older, it is still very modern and has modern amenities, including free wireless internet (and a business center with even faster wired internet and printing capabilities).
My wife enjoyed lounging by one of the two pools. One pool is heated and the other is not. They are not very large but since the hotel is small, it was never an issue. When we checked in, our room was not ready yet, but it only took 10 minutes or so and we were good to go.
There are a lot of great things that people have already mentioned in other reviews, so I'll just briefly bring them up: great service, genuinely nice people, great location (real close to all the action but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing), and free wireless internet. The only things I'd criticize are: no food included at all (there is a grocery store one block away though), no hot tub, no fitness center (you can run outside though!), and an overall expensive rate. I was also hoping for free bike rentals, like some of the other local properties offered. The Marquesa did not have bikes but did offer to help you rent one from a local company. If you check other similar properties located close by, they are not CRAZY expensive, but you do pay a premium for the Marquesa. Is the Marquesa worth the premium over other local places. Probably. But the crowd is older so if you are a party animal this place is probably not for you.
