Key West Luxury Hotel
Named the prettiest hotel in Key West by the New York Times List, The Gardens Hotel of Key West is an architectural and botanical treasure - listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Gardens gated and walled property houses 17 luxurious guest suites surrounded by one of Floridas oldest tropical gardens. Just steps away from Key West's infamous Duval Street. The Gardens Hotel's world class accommodations have won top honors from Zagat, Conde Nast, and Travel and Leisure Magazine and it's the only hotel in Key West to be in the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die. In addition to a free-form pool and bar, fountains, large bronze statues, artwork, an aviary, a Koi pond that Ernest Hemingway reportedly fell into, and two African Spur tortoises, the property features four large antique clay water vessels called "Tinajones" - dating back to the 1700's and crated and shipped to the US from Cuba before the embargo. This is truly the most unique and exclusive lodging establishment in Key West.
