The very best place to stay in Florida

Think of Bahamian plantation style furniture, orchids, outdoor verandahs, marble baths and breakfast by the pool.

The New York Times named The Gardens Hotel “The Prettiest Hotel In Key West.”

The hotel is listed in the book 1,000 PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE.

There are 17 luxurious guest suites set in a tropical garden that was once a private estate.

The original mansion, built in the Bahamian style, was built in the 1800’s.

"This is the most quaint, beautiful, romantic little hideaway. We were greeted at the front desk by Nancy with champaigne at check-in, so you know our stay started off good! The room was immaculate, the grounds were beautiful and quiet, parking was convenient (Nancy even let us keep our car there the rest of the day after check-out), breakfast was tasty, and everyone was just so pleasant."
