Another trip to Key West and another fantastic stay at the Gardens. Something about this place just makes our whole vacatoin more enjoyable. Maybe it is the staff, which cant be beat. Or maybe it is the other guests that all meet around the bar for a drink before heading out to Duval for the night. It seems everytime I...

We just returned from our stay here and we enjoyed every minute. It's in a perfect location (right off Duval in the center of town) and the various buildings are arranged around beautiful gardens. We stayed in the tree top room which is apparently smaller but we found it lovely and cozy. We had our own outdoor living room where...

Thank you for the kind kudo's! As I sit here writing this response, we are installing a new state of the art pool heater! Fall arrived early this year and the pool will be warm by Tuesday! I am sorry for the cool pool!

Thank you for your belated review. Yes Billy and the cats are indeed fun. Our Jazz is the highlight of almost every guest who stays with us. In fact, many stay the added Sunday just for Jazz. I find that some guests enjoy Jazz on a raft in the pool! Perhaps the night you were here we had a louder...

This was our 3rd time staying at the Gardens Hotel. What impressed me on our 1st 2 visits was how nice the room/gardens were. It felt like an oasis just a block off Duval. Also, the pool is nicey proportioned for a Key West B&B. Unfortunately the weather this time around was not nice. Not their fault obviously. The last...

We returned to The Gardens for a belated 5th anniversary; we were married at The Gardens and always have an excuse for a return trip. It's a fantastic hotel and it's always a treat to stay there. It's near to everything, yet secluded. The grounds are second to none. Yet, the staff truly separates this hotel from others. Everyone will...
