That is exactly how we felt during our one-week stay at The Gardens Hotel. Our room (Cottage #1) was delightful, the staff was friendly & helpful beyond what was expected, and the whole ambiance & appearance of the hotel was over-the-top. We must tell you how much we enjoyed your European Continental Breakfasts.....the food was delicious and the variety of...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 January 2017

My husband and I left single digit weather in Ohio to celebrate our anniversary at The Gardens Hotel. We were not disappointed with either the weather or this fabulous hotel! We spent 4 nights in the Carriage Room 4A, located directly over the cabana bar. Beautiful room with a beautiful view of the pool, gazebo and the lush grounds. We...

The Gardens Hotel is an outstanding property, beautiful, charming, historic. The welcome is warm, the staff at reception helpful. The location is perfection, very near the heart of the action but in a peaceful neighborhood with wonderful classic Key West homes. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and beautifully supplied. The garden is magic, filled with art and creatures (tortoises, birds,...

We were extremely disappointed with our recent experience at The Gardens Hotel and would not recommend it to anyone. We spent $700 per night for a small cramped cottage without working wifi and an older bathroom with very uneven water temperature control. "Watch out for the hot water in the shower, you will get burned" We reported to management on...

Every time I stay here I love it more. The set up is great. You think 'Hotel' but what you get is a bed and breakfast feel. Mix, this with a vast private garden, a great location. Quietly tucked just off Duval St. If you stay long enough, you slowly get the sense of what it must be like to...

For the price, I expected better service at the Gardens Hotel. We arrived around noon and the concierge seemed a bit put out we were early. My husband and I are a gay couple and when we arrived, the person asked something about whether we were together/in separate rooms, which didn't get things off of a good start. I was...

We loved our time at The Gardens Hotel. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. The grounds are quiet and beautifully landscaped, with comfortable rooms facing various portions of the gardens. Adam, the bartender, recommended some fantastic restaurants which we truly enjoyed. It is one of the nicest hotels we've stayed at in the States. Highly recommended!

The Gardens Hotel, is a tranquil oasis of relaxation and indulgence. The service and amenities are second to none. The manager, Joseph, could not have been more welcoming or friendly. His obvious priority was the well being and comfort of his guests and yet he achieves this without fuss or being 'over the top' or obsequious. We enjoyed our stay...

This was our second stay at The Gardens Hotel and it was every bit as wonderful as our first. Starting from the check-in you immediately feel welcome. All the staff are great and really friendly. The room was great and you even have a semi private porch just outside the room if you stay in one of the Garden rooms....

Clean, friendly, great complimentary breakfast. Adults only. Small. detail oriented. Great location. Nicely appointed rooms. Pool is nice and has a cabanna bar. Easy walk to everything in KW but off of Duval and quiet in a lush garden setting.
