This small Key West hotel is situated in the heart of the historic district of Old Town Key West and is comprised of four buildings. Children 14 and older are welcome at Marquesa Hotel. Teens will love the two swimming pools which are great for having fun in. The sights and sounds of Key West are easy to find when staying at this hotel. Duval Street is just one block away and Mallory Square is just four blocks away, along with the Gulf of Mexico. But if your family is looking for the Atlantic Ocean, that’s less than a mile away too. Families can enjoy complimentary coffee and tea poolside or request a continental breakfast to enjoy in the garden or in your room for a fee. The guestrooms feature central air conditioning and king or queen beds. The suites additionally feature a separate living room area with a sleeper sofa. A deck or balcony is available in some of the guestrooms as well. Wi-Fi is available. The onsite restaurant, CafÃ© Marquesa, serves dinner and will not disappoint guests.

We've been coming here for 10+ years and they NEVER disappoint us! This time we are staying in their new 414 Fleming property and we love it
We are in suite room and it is awesome! You pay for for what you get! We'll be back!
I do not recommend the hotel. While the location is good and it's very quiet, the hotel feels neglected somehow. It's like a movie set of a nice hotel.
As other reviewers have said, good luck finding someone on site to help you. The desks in the lobby were empty all 7 days and nights of my trip. If you need something, you have to knock on a closed office door and the people who answered the door appeared startled each time. I agree with the other reviewers that I felt I was disturbing them. It was awkward.
There was a leak in my room's ceiling, directly above the desk where I'd set up my laptop. The water was coming in so quickly that the drips actually woke me up at 3am, and I was able to move my computer before it got damaged. It did get very wet but it's working fine. I put towels all over the floor and desk to absorb the water and told the guy in the office about it the next morning. He was totally bored and said he'd let maintenence know. I told him my computer got wet, and he showed me a different room (a much smaller, darker option). I declined the downgraded room. They didn't apologize, offer any discount, or show any interest.
When I checked out this morning I couldn't find anyone, so I just left my key on the empty desk in the lobby. As I was walking away, someone came out of the office and said they would email my folio. Gee thanks.
