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.

... artsy, gay, fun, warm, familiar yet unfamiliar. It is a place you need to see for yourself to decide if you like it just a little or like it a lot.
You can cruise here, fly here or drive here. But, however you do it, you should come here to see for yourself if this lovely, tacky, homey, warm and familiar place is for ...
... till 3.30pm & would highly recommend it for a visit. It's quite a drive & if we could do it again we would've stayed longer & taken advantage of the tours they offer such as night party cruises, snorkelling, jet ski hire, fishing etc. Then we headed towards Miami & started ringing camp grounds. Was a fail as most of them closed at 5pm & we were at least a few hours away. Then looked into hostels ...
... living area, cupboard laundry and extra toilet downstairs. Upstairs are a bedroom and bathroom with a balcony that overlooks the pool area.
We settled in and went down to relax and swim in the pool for a few hours. Later we explored the nearby area of Key West on foot. Initially we found the ocean beach and the marker for the most Southern point of the United States (90 miles to Cuba) and the ...
... beer, cokes, vino and chips! The two wheeler has been a huge help. The grocery store is about 5 blocks and we have to really pack carefully to get everything on the cart.
On the way back from the grocery store, we found the restaurant that I took a picture of.
Dirt floor and all..................really a laid back place! haven't eaten there yet and it hasn't been recommended yet either!
Well, the storm is about over ...

Turns out that the Duck operators have an arrangement with the Navy to use the heavy duty boat ramp. This agreement is coming to an end this month, so it seemed like we were just in time. The captain has to ask permission to enter the basin as the Navy apparently trains SEALs and conducts other operations they don't like to share with the public. Having received permission, they opened the gate and we slid down ...
