“Nice choice for Key West”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Marquesa is a combination hotel and B&B without the breakfast. I understand there are 28 rooms in a complex of 3 or 4 large houses. Nice little pool area in the back. Excellent reception when we came-we really felt welcomed and the manager even helped us with our luggage. And the welcome wine didn't hurt, either. We came to Key West without a reservation, as we were unsure if we were going to stop somewhere first along the Keys route in. Rooms quoted by several hotels were similar to what we were quoted in advance. Key West hotels are very, very expensive, and the typical, clean room will go for $200 and above for what would normally range $80 to $100. Marquesa was much nicer than typical, but still very pricey. Location of Marquesa was very good, near the main area. Because of the great location, parking was about impossible, but the manager was able to get us in one of their reserved spots (no extra charge).

The Marquesa Hotel gets a solid five stars in spite of the occasional obnoxious and inconsiderate smokers at the pools and on the grounds generally. The First Class management has taken the giant step of banning cell phones at the pools and common areas, thus almost achieving tranquility. Please take the next logical step: ban smoking on the entire property and achieve total tranquility.

The architecture, plant selections and maintenance, amenities and room cleanliness are impressive, and relaxation is automatic. Onsite parking, a rare thing in Key West, is a super plus here. Another great plus is the hotel's setting at the edge of a quaint residential area but only a short walk to fine restaurants and as much of the crazy part of Key West as you may want.

First time taking my wife to Key West, and she picked the place... The staff was very friendly and did an excellent job in making us feel like we were staying at home, albeit with better service than at home! The facility was beautiful, quiet and conveniently located to everywhere you might want to go in Key West. There is an adjoining restaurant with good food if you don't feel like walking far on a rainy day for dinner.

Room Tip: If you have a preference, you should call ahead. We didn't and got a great room any way. With o...

Had a poolside room with an upper balcony , fantastic room in the beautiful period hotel a stones throw away from Duval St. Within minutes walk to most sites of interest .
Two pools and only 27 rooms means that you virtually have a pool to yourself . Free wifi means you can stay in touch with home at no cost !
Staff were first class and knowledgeable even suggesting restaurants to suit prefererances even though the Marquessa has its own restaurant.
Complimentary poolside coffee each morning and iced tea/water all day . Plentiful supply of free towels and enough sun beds .
Thought it may be noisy but with having a pool side room as long as the bathroom door was closed never heard the traffic to the front on Simmington. Rooms were spacious , clean , well furnished and beds turned down each evening at your required time .
Staff even recommend moving over the mini bar contents so you can use the room refrigerator for your own drinks from the supermarket 2 mins away .
Free on site car parking , and in Key West parking is a distinct advantage !
Not the cheap by any means but you only get what you pay for in life !

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra for room opening on to the poolside . Upper ones get more sun on veranda ! $2...

This is our 4th trip to this WONDERFUL hotel.. Being in Key West and having a place to get off the beaten path was fantastic. The staff could not have been nicer and the Carriage Suites were delightful. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who want to relax and be pampered. A piece of heaven can be found at the Marquesa... Jodi and Bob

Lovely looking hotel in Key West. We had a great stay for 2 nights in May. Very good service, very clean and good activity and restaurant recommendation. The pools were great too. We were in a poolside room in the main house with a shared patio and loved the fact we could just almost step out and into the pool. And an added bonus was that water and juice is provided by the pool. The only downside was the air con was quite noisy. The Cafe Marquesa was a great restaurant too with amazing service and food.

Room Tip: The only thing about being poolside is that you couldn't lie in that well with people talking by...

After TONS of research, we settled on this hidden gem due to the location, ratings, and history. This place is pure magic and the pictures don't do it justice. We had a Junior Suite, and it was more than enough room for my husband and I. We enjoyed the balcony overlooking the pool for our morning coffee and afternoon brews. The courtyard complete with two pools and gardens were immaculate! Perfect location - just off Duval street without the noise and a short walk to Pepe's (where we ate twice!) Honestly, when we checked out I had to hold back tears. Such a beautiful place and I was so sad to leave. Thank you Marquesa! I hope to see you again.

Room Tip: Junior Suite was lovely, but not necessary. You hardly spend anytime in your room!
