Historical Traveler Reviews Marquesa Hotel Key West
We loved everything about the Marquesa! First class room, beautiful pool w/ orchids and a terrific meal.
Jewel of the south
my husband and i try to get away alone once a year. the marquesa is always our 1st choice. the beautifully renovated conch style houses are connected and take up almost 1/2 block. inside the courtyard are beautiful, lush pools surrounded by tropical foliage. the service is incredible, and we love michael, the concierge. he cheerfully carries our bags up 2 flights of stairs in 95 degree heat, makes all water activity reservations, recommends restraunts, etc. the rooms are elegantly tropical with 4 poster beds, our favorite room is #21, with a full balcony overlooking a quiet treelined street. we would highly recommend it. its not cheap but well worth it
The best hotel around...
My wife and I stayed at the Marquesa from June 30th through July the 3rd. We travel quite a bit and found this hotel to be the best we have ever stayed. Although we had researched this place on the internet and guide books we were not prepared for how truly wonderful this place was.
First the staff at ther Marquesa could not have been better. They were highly efficient and helpful while never being intrusive. They were quite helpful as to suggestions during our stay.
Second, the facilities were without peer. The landscaping, rooms, furnishings and bathrooms were upscale.
The restaurant was also exceptional.
This hotel was truly an oasis in the heart of Old Town Key West and my wife and I look forward to our return.
True, this inn can be a bit expensive. My husband and I got a great rate on the internet and were surprised by an upgrade when we arrived, so it seemed like quite a bargain to us! The grounds are lovely and the staff is excellent. The attention to detail makes you feel as if you are royalty. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!
Location, Location, Location
We stayed at the Marquesa for 3 days in 2001 after reading all the positive reviews in travel guides and online reviews. While it is indeed a classy place, it is located in the middle of a residential area. No views of the ocean - our room had a view of the brick building next door. The amenities are first rate, but sitting in the center court by the pool is a far cry from lying on a lounge chair by the ocean watching the pelicans fly by. My point is this: This is a beautiful hotel but I feel it's for the kind of people that would feel at home at any Ritz-Carlton in any part of the world. Why do you travel to Key West: For the Service??
Well worth the big bucks
Highly recommended. I've stayed in too many places that offer hype, a hefty tab and little more. The Marquesa is the real deal. Exceptional.
A luxury hotel that gets every detail right and exceeds expectations.
Spent three nights in Junior Suite #24 overlooking the heated pool and gardens. Private balcony, high ceilings, quiet central a/c, lavish marble bath (with skin-shedding shower water pressure), comfy and elegant furnishings, coma-inducing king bed, top-shelf linens and pillows... Prompt room service for breakfast, generous fresh fruit salad, oven-warm banana bread... Staff was pleasant, knowledgeable, incisively attentive but totally unobtrusive. Quiet, lush, tranquil environs a welcome reprieve from the Duval party scene. I only wish every self-proclaimed luxury hotel was managed this well. Treat yourself and spend the money on a Junior Suite. Enjoy!
Pleasant Small Hotel
Very pleasant small hotel that really tries. Efforts do not entirely come off and there is a slightly homespun air to the place. However, rooms are good, grounds are well tended and there is an excellent restaurant. Also, there is the enormous advantage of one block between the Marquesa and the noisy Duval Street.
Really much too pricey, but recommended if you like small hotels.
Nice but $
Very beautiful Inn. Wonderful decor and comfortable rooms. We also had the least expensive room (next to stairs with great balcony. The room was small but the balcony made up for it. The bathroom was small but tasteful with great Gilchrist and Soames products. The noise wasn't a problem for us in fact we kept the patio door open most nights. True, the street is a little loud but no where near as loud as on Duval. We had diiner at the restaurant and while it was beautiful, it seemed a little stuffy for Key West. Maybe I just don't appreciate fine dining as much as some people I guess. We had them bring a continental breakfast one morning and it was great but we found a bakery on Duval St. and it was so good we just went there every other morning and saved some coin. The pool area is also very nice. This is a classy place and so everyone is pretty quiet. No big pool parties going on here. To be honest, I would have liked a bit more fun. (some people were having a church/business meeting at the pool....come on) Alll in all this place is great. The price is teep but if you are looking for class in Key West, this is the best.
We couldn't be happier following our delightful stay at this idyllic Key West retreat. The rooms were beautiful, the service stellar. Pure bliss!
Great service !
PROS - Great location, 2 blocks off Duval, so it's relatively quiet. All the hosts are very freindly. Nicely decorated. Free limited parking. Pools are very pretty. Great room service. Romantic.
CONS - Slightly on the expensive side, esp not including breakfast. We've room facing the street, and next to staircase, so it could be loud in the morning. I have the cheapest room, so it's very small.
I would recommend this hotel.

... and the whole trip took about 3 hours (I really got used to reefs that you can just enter from the shore. I guess Christian’s stomach wood have been happy about a reef that doesn’t acquire to go there by boat as well). The reef was quite nice. We saw some small fish, barracudas and a ray. Be prepared for cold water. I rented a neoprene suit but I was freezing after 2 hours in the water anyway. Well, I’m always cold but the water ...
... the Yankee Freedom III. It's a beautiful catamaran boat that travels daily from Key West to the Dry Tortugas, a National Park at the end of the Keys. The Dry Tortugas (named for its lack of fresh water and the word for turtle in Spanish) is also home to Ft. Jefferson, one of the largest forts in the union military. Nowadays, the fort is the home base for the National Park Service and hosts year round tours and snorkeling. Unfortunately, today ...
... the sand. In some 30 years of ordained ministry I had never done a beach wedding nor one barefoot and it was really fun. Since there were no attendants, no Best Man or Maid of Honor, and no rehearsal, the evening before Andy, Christina, her mother and I had dinner together. I must say Christina is delightful- fun, smart, beautiful and there is no doubt that she and Andy make an awesome couple. As we enjoyed each others' company we worked out the details ...

We crossed over 7-mile bridge and as the sun was nearly over the horizon, we pulled in to a parking lot. As I exited the car and turned to face the sunset my breath was taken away by the numerous shades of red and orange emanating from beyond the Keys. So vivid. I have seen sunsets over the South Pacific and the Caribbean but this image will remain with me for a very long time. A bunch of octogenarian Floridians weren’t ...
It's only 100 miles from the southern tip of the Florida mainland to Key West but as much of it is 40-50mph limits the journey takes well over 2 hours. Fortunately it is a beautiful drive over more than 60 islands all connected by the "highway" US–1, including the famous 7-mile bridge. The water is a beautiful turquoise and the views are spectacular. We actually didn't do very much while we were here, instead enjoying 4 days of rest, with ...
