A small historic hotel with big resort amenities, the Marquesa is steps from raucous Duval Street. Four classic Conch-style houses with tin roofs, wraparound porches, and gingerbread railings surround a quiet palm- and bougainvillea-filled garden with two swimming pools. The 27 rooms and villa-like suites, some with covered porches, are filled with antique and reproduction Indonesian sleigh beds, armoires, and writing tables. The huge bathrooms are done in Italian green marble. It's the most polished inn in Key West, and probably the most luxurious. One of Key West's finest restaurants, Café Marquesa, is on the premises.

These four Greek Revival buildings set around a "lushly landscaped courtyard" and two "lounge-worthy pools" are one block from Duvall Street, and balance being "far enough from the noise but close enough to the excitement." Individually decorated rooms have West Indian planter chairs, Indonesian sleigh beds, and teak tables from the Philippines. Café Marquesa serves contemporary American cuisine highlighting local fish—"the service and food are excellent."
