Had a wonderful 3 nights in this hotel. A small gem with few rooms (book in advance!),great location, room comfort, staff friendliness, nice breakfast included, swimming pool...... but wait there is more... and this is where the 5th star comes with no hesitation. A great garden space, for nice evening or day-time strolls to discover some of the hidden art...

Since 1999, it's always been a treat to stay at the Gardens. The location is the best if your plans include outings to the more quiet Southern Most side or the rowdier Mallory Square side. Plus as you walk off Duval toward the hotel, the tranquility of the gardens awaits. Our goal is to eventually stay in all of the...

Very nice grounds and our room above the bar was excellent.. I remarked to staff how quiet it was on a Saturday night with bars on Duval featuring live bands only 1/2 block away. Walked everywhere. My advice, don't bring a car. Only complaint, Hotel had live jazz on Sunday evening & setting up closed the pool deck mid-afternoon. But...

What a pleasant discovery! I arrived in the evening after the drive from Miami and was greeted by Rhoda with a glass of Prosecco :) I stayed in Cottage 1 and enjoyed every minute of it. The sound of the private pool and fountain, my front and back patios, awesome bathroom and bed, shower and towels. Continental breakfast included in...

Spent 4 nights at the Gardens. While the accommodations are appealing and the bed is comfortable, the noise is relentless. The slamming of the front door and other guest room doors woke us up more than ten times over four nights between 1am and 5am. And the fire department across the street woke us up another three times. I know...

We made a last minute trip to Key West last week (Dec 1 - 3) and decided to stay at The Gardens. We have been to Key West many times and stayed at many properties (The Banyon, Weatherstation Inn @ Truman Annex, Heron House, etc.). Although never disappointed at any facility, our stay at The Gardens was simply beyond compare....

I surprised my wife with a 25th wedding anniversary trip to Key West. We had not been in years. I used tripadvsior to help with the hotel and restaurant selections. The Gardens was one of the top rated, and I am glad I selected them for the celebration. Rhoda and the team were very helpful and prompt with the on-line...

The Gardens Hotel and its owner Kate made our visit over Thanksgiving 2016 unforgettable. The unique setting, proximate to Duval Street but amazingly quiet and relaxing, is further enhanced by the unique artistic and living elements throughout the garden property. The staff is unfailingly generous and knowledgeable - Jim, Rhoda and Barbara were particularly wonderful to us - and the...

If you want to rest and get away from the hustle of Duvall Street, this is a great place to stay. Beautiful rooms and felt like we were staying in a sanctuary. Great breakfast with a friendly atmosphere.
