Third time we have stayed here. The beautiful tropical garden courtyard, quiet pool area, roof top sun deck and affordable quality bicycle rentals keep bringing us back. The rooms feel very "Key West" with shady porches that have comfortable furnishings to sip cocktails or play cards.

We were very pleased with our overnight stay. I requested a quiet room and the helpful clerk suggested Room #3, a queen suite, in the Arch House. The room was nicely furnished with a kitchenette, very clean and quiet. Bathrooms were furnished with quality bath products. The room's private balcony overlooked the amazing tropical gardens. Some of the rooms face...

We are so happy you had a peaceful stay here with us. Sometimes it gets a little celebratory here on the Island but our location is one of the best if you want to have some quiet time poolside or on your porch between all the festivities. Thanks for your comments!

Well situated for the key areas of Key West, but far enough away from the noisier parts of town to provide a pleasant haven. Booked this on a budget deal, and very pleasantly surprise by how nice it was. Room was quite large, and done out is "beach style". The swing seat on the balcony was the "icing". Perhaps best...

Our family of five LOVED the Island City House! Plenty of room for two adults and 3 young kids. When we walked in we could tell that we would be very comfortable in this immaculate hotel. The grounds are stunning and we never wanted to leave. A perfect location, a short walk to Duval street.

When I first walked on this property I thought it was paradise! The grounds we take great pride in and are in the process of planting some more pony tail palms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our Key West suite accommodations at The Island City House Hotel are comprised of three buildings, each with its own style and unique character. The Arch House features six suites furnished in a casual Caribbean Style. The two suites on the first floor are two-bedroom suites. These suites have two separate bedrooms each with one queen-sized bed, a living/dining room with a kitchen, one bathroom, and a small porch. The studio-suites on the second floor of the Arch House have one queen-sized bed in an alcove, a sitting area with a kitchenette, and either a street-side balcony with a porch swing or a garden view balcony with a hammock. The Island City House is the main building on our property housing twelve parlor suites, ten one-bedroom suites, and two two-bedroom suites. These suites are furnished in an island Victorian style with lace curtains and many antique pieces. The two bedroom suites have two separate bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other with a queen bed, a living/dining room with a full kitchen, one bathroom and a large porch. The ten parlor suites have one queen-size bed and a separate sitting area with a kitchen. Many of these suites also have a sleeper sofa (for children or a third adult) or a porch overlooking the gardens. The Cigar House, our poolside building, is the home of our six largest one-bedroom suites. All of these suites are decorated in a tropical plantation style. The first and second floor suites have a king-size bed in the bedroom, a separate living room with a full kitchen, and a hammock on the poolside porch or balcony.
