The property was beautiful, has a romantic ambiance, and great service. We were welcomed by Tippy and she set the stage for a perfect stay. She was bubbly and fun with wonderful recommendations. Billy the bartender is well known to all guests for his great service and wonderful drinks. The rooms are well appointed. This property is definitely worth the...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Overall very good. Friendly staff, good location. Would return. Only negative comments would be: front desk recommended two restaurants that were AWFUL.

First, thank you for your review. I feel I have to address your issues here as they are misleading. The two restaurants in question are 915 and B.O.'s fishwagon. B.O.'s is Zagat rated and 915 recently cooked for and was invited back to cook at the James Beard Foundation. I am highly surprised to hear they where awful. With regard...

I stumbled across the Garden Hotel in Key West while surfing the internet. What a fantastic find!! From the minute we entered the main house to check-in for our stay we were treated like royalty!

My husband & I just spend two wonderful days at the Gardens and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The location is central but pleasantly quiet and peaceful. The garden is awesome and service friendly and professional. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for peace and quiet in a luxurious surrounding!

My wife and I were going to Key West for the first time last summer and didn't know which hotel to choose. We wanted a quiet, relaxing, intimate hotel with all the amenities and none of the college kids. I went by previous reviews and crossed our fingers. We found the perfect spot at the Gardens Hotel! The hotel is...

My wife and I shared a long weekend getaway at The Gardens Hotel. We absolutely loved it. It was a great contrast from the crazy Duval street to the quiet and calm relaxation of The Gardens. The staff was fantastic and our room was perfect. We will ONLY stay at The Garden's Hotel from now on.
