For our first visit to Key West we found a quiet botanical garden in the middle of downtown Key West. Elegant hotel, comfortable bed and room. We came for our anniversary and stayed in one of the Cottages. The second day we booked a return visit for next year. Great breakfast, live music each evening, friendly and easily accessible staff. Reasonably priced.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I spent our 3rd anniversary there last week. It was our first time in Key West and I chose the right location to stay. We were greeted by Nancy with glasses of cool prosecco during check-in, which was very simple. We chose to use the onsite parking since it was available and inexpensive. We actually didn't move the car the entire stay. We were given a key to our cottage 1 and a key to the entry gate. Walking through the gate, we passed a splashing water feature alongside the pool, private to the cottage guests. Our Cottage 1 was straight ahead with a charming, large porch just for us. How exciting to walk in and explore the cool interior, tastefully decorated with ocean features and colors. Due to the current times, the breakfast bar was not open but they gave us a large bowl with all sorts of treats. They also gave us a card and complimentary bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge for our anniversary! so sweet of them. Off the living room, is the large bedroom with a king bed and French doors that lead to the shared porch behind. This is shared with two other cottages. The bed was comfortable and we had 6 large pillows to use. The bathroom is open to the bedroom with a private toilet, a closet for clothes, ironing board, etc and another closet which housed the small refrigerator and Keurig. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and bottles of water are supplied as you need them. We enjoyed a drink at the pool bar tended by Jay and enjoyed walking through the shady, magical gardens full of interesting artwork and even two tortoises. The self-serve wine bar is convenient and we enjoyed a fine glass of Merlot with the acoustic guitar player on Friday evening. In between enjoying Key West, we cooled off in our semi-private pool which was right in front of the cottage. It was perfectly relaxing. Thank you so much, we will definitely return!!

We stayed in the eyebrow cottage for 3 nights during our honeymoon. Overall, the cottage was small but very private and cute. The grounds were wonderful and the staff was very friendly. Especially Lynn, who waited for us and helped get us settled when we were running a bit late. However, I cannot give the hotel 5 stars because we found a pair of someone else’s underwear in the bottom of our bed. We hope it just got caught up in the laundry and stuck to the sheets and not that the bed was actually dirty, but either way it was pretty gross to see. When we reported it, the staff member seemed truly surprised and understanding so I do not think this was a common occurrence. I would stay here again because the location cannot be beat, but I would throughly check the room / bed before getting in it next time.

Cannot say enough good things about The Gardens Hotel. First off, the staff/service was exceptional. They were so welcoming, friendly, and attentive from check-in until check-out. The location is PERFECT! Less than a block from Duval but still so quiet and peaceful. Now, the actual hotel and grounds are quite seriously perfection! The hotel has some interesting history, the gardens are gorgeous, rooms beautiful, beds are very comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. The animals were seriously just the icing on the cake... Tortoises, birds, and a cat. Absolutely loved it and we will certainly be back!

Just finished our stay in cottage 4 and was the most beautiful and relaxing vacation we’ve had in a long time. The gardens surrounding the cottages are gorgeous and love how the rooms showcase the natural beauty of this place. Highly recommend The Gardens Hotel to anyone looking to unplug and unwind in a beautiful peaceful setting. We can’t wait to come back!
