“Paradise in Key West”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Marquesa Hotel July of 2014. This is the first time in seven trips to the Keys that we didn’t stay in a Bed and Breakfast. It was a great choice, we much rather go out for breakfast on the island; there are way too many great breakfast places, to include La Crêperie. The hotel is super clean and beautiful. Every room is spectacular and huge.
There are two pools; one heated and the other not. Both pools were 90 degrees and a great help getting through the hot and humid day.
The grounds are just like a fancy B and B and there is 24 hour coverage at the front desk, who all are very knowledgeable about the island.
The restaurant is great and a must even if you’re not staying at the hotel.
I would stay at this hotel again and again and again.
The hotel offers coffee, tea and juice in the morning on the pool deck and water and ice tea in the afternoon.
If you want the luxury and can afford it, stay at this hotel. The location is perfect, two blocks off Duval Street and plenty of small local places to eat at in the area.

Room Tip: request one of the poolside rooms.

I recently completed my fifth or sixth stay at the Marquesa Hotel. It is the best small hotel in Florida. My room was as clean as a whistle. I stayed in a junior suite with porch that overlooked one of two pools. The staff was superb and very friendly.

Room Tip: My room was a junior suite near the pool. My stay could not have been more perfect!

Great location to the surrounding areas: Mallory Square,Key West Cemetery etc. and great local restaurants within a 3 min drive by car or 15 mins walk depending on where you going.We enjoyed the vibes ... no kids no noise.The setting with the pool x 2, plants, orchids and cascading waters ... ( mini water fall) a nice refreshing element.However, we opted for the beach instead.
Room 23 location just at the top of the water fall feature looks great from below .... I have not been inside this room so I'm not certain if it is a suite.
The standard room is adequate for two people.I would much rather have a real mini fridge which keeps items cold and not chilled plus a tea/coffee pot/maker to make my own tea any time I wish. Too many items stocked in the mini fridge and on table near the Tv by Marquesa Hotel. Over kill I think.
I will stay here again but certainly not a third time if a real mini fridge or tea/coffee maker is not available in room.
Friendly,helpful staff.

Room Tip: Rooms on Simonton Street has noise from traffic. Noisy A/C. Rooms not sound proof.If your neighbor c...

We arrived to check in with CJ. He was an absolute doll. Very informative, accommodating and couldn't help us enough. Our room was more than expected, step outside and the pool was there. Fresh Tea, Water, Ice and Towels every day. Morning Coffee was fresh and delightful. Wi-Fi mini bar, and safe in the room. Local grocery store a block away. You will love this Jewel.

Staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful, arranging bike hire, car rental and dinner reservations. We stayed in a junior suite which was spacious, comfortable and had a nice little veranda where you can eat breakfast. There are two good pools and nice little touches such as free iced tea and water all day at the pool, free glass of wine on arrival. The location was great, being off the main strip but close to it and within an easy walk of lots of good restaurants. The restaurant itself was very good with great food and cocktails. Worth a visit!

Room Tip: Pick a junior suite as they are slightly back from the pool and a bit more private

Nestled among the beauty of its landscaping is the tranquil Marquesa. The location is perfect for shopping,exploring,eating and the bars. In the heat of the afternoon the pool is the perfect place to be. Not the huge crowds of the large hotels just peace and quiet. This is our 4-5th time here over a fifteen year span and we still love it. We have stayed at other locations but always come back here. The staff and service are to be commended!

Perfect location, very close to the shops and bars on Duval and an easy bike ride to everything else. The grounds are gorgeous and it was wonderful to take a dip in one of the two pools at the end of very hot day. Highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again and again.
