Overview

Couples will appreciate hotel's 14 and older age policy
Property does not have an elevator

This tiny hotel on Fleming Street beckons to travelers who don't have young kids. In fact, you have to be at least 14 years of age to stay at The Marquesa Hotel. A look at the amenities list and restaurant menu items and you'll get a sense of that mature vibe – in other words, don't expect to see any chicken nuggets or hot dogs. Instead, sample Café Marquesa's diver sea scallops or roasted duck breast. The rooms are smaller than what you might expect from a luxury hotel, but they're quiet and dressed in sunny yellows and soft blues, with some of the deluxe rooms featuring hardwood floors. Just be aware that the hotel does not have an elevator, so some guests suggest requesting a room on one of the lower floors (or packing light). You won't need a car while staying at The Marquesa Hotel, since top sites like Mallory Square and the Audubon House & Tropical Gardens are a short walk away.

In a town that prides itself on its laid-back luxury, this complex of four restored 1884 houses stands out. Guests – typically shoeless – relax among two richly landscaped pools, rock waterfalls, and peaceful gardens.

Frommer's

Back in 1986, Carol Whiteman transformed a lovely pair of 1880s clapboards into a four-building complex that today houses a pair of Key West's most cozy, fetching, and pricey small hotels and restaurants (see Café Marquesa) that are close to, yet apart from, Duval Street's bustle. Rooms are good-sized, appointed with a tasteful mix of the antique and the contemporary, and more often than not have porches for enjoying room-service breakfast, a glass of wine, or just some veg-out time.

When it opened in 1988, the Marquesa raised the bar among Key West hotels. The original building, a landmark 1884 Greek Revival boardinghouse, was bought by two local men who specialized in restoring Key West's architectural gems.

'It's like paradise within Key West.' In the center of the city's historic district, a block from Duval Street and five blocks from the Gulf of Mexico, this hotel is within walking distance of the main tourist sights and museums yet remains 'a quiet oasis right in the middle of everything.'
