Historic guest rooms, lush courtyard gardens at the heart of Old Town
The Duval House provides a romantic, quiet getaway for honeymooners and couples (no children 16 or younger allowed). Located on Duval Street just a short walk from both the southern beaches and Mallory Square, the Duval House comprises seven beautifully restored Victorian buildings that stand around a lush tropical garden and swimming pool. Popular Key West attractions sit nearby, including the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and the Duval House staff can arrange tours of Old Town or diving and fishing charters.
Highlights
  • Quiet, garden guest rooms in downtown Key West
  • Complimentary continental breakfast
  • Dial-up Internet access (free) in guest rooms
Rooms
The Duval House feature a variety of guest rooms, including standard hotel style guest rooms, deluxe rooms with French doors that open onto the gardens, cabanas, and apartments with full kitchens. Accommodations have queen beds and are geared toward couples, as Duval House has a no-children policy. Despite the downtown location, accommodations at Duval House sit secluded from the action, with patios and balconies overlooking the peaceful courtyard. All of the rooms include private bathrooms, air conditioning, cable TVs and dial-up Internet access.
Features
Though situated at the heart of the Key West downtown historic district on lively Duval Street, the Duval House features quiet, secluded accommodations that offer respite from the crowds. The hotel has seven classic, island-style buildings that stand around a lush garden courtyard. A newly constructed pool offers a place for guests to relax and cool off, while the attentive staff can help arrange island tours or set up charters to go diving and fishing in the rich offshore Key West waters. Guests get a complimentary continental breakfast each morning, and the Duval House has off-street parking available to guests. No children 16 or under allowed.

Excellant Location, Clean and Quiet, Nice Staff

An absolutely wonderful and extremely clean and well kept, I stayed at room 12 and room 17. Room 17 was unique as the bed was up in a loft. I liked it as it had a courtyard view. I was here and went some place else but came back one day latter. The staff is so pleasant. It is right on Duval street and walking distance to south beach and to the clubs. There is a continental breakfast that is staffed. a beautiful pool and lush landscaping. I would most certainly come here again

Can't beat the location!

This B&B doesn't come with a whole lot of bells n' whistles but with Duval St. right out your door, you don't need much else! You're blocks from the Southern Most Point, a few blocks from the bar scene on Duval --- but just far enough to not have to deal with the noise all night long. The hotel is clean and quiet, shaded by beautiful trees. Off-street parking on-site, free breakfast, easily walkable to all of the popular attractions, bike/scooter rental next door for cruising around the island. Plus, the price was pretty darn good for this area of town. My only complaint is the bed was a bit uncomfortable, rooms were pretty basic, and the free breakfast had minimal offerings. I'd stay here again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Blue Heaven is a short walk from Duval House, best meal I've had in Key West and definitely makes my top five best meals I've ever had.

Duval House

The hotel was great. The rooms were a little small but really nice. The location was amazing, right downtown on Duval Street. The hotel had a nice pool and a great "backyard" area. Complimentary continental breakfast was good (bagels, muffins, cereal).

Great location near points of interest

enjoyed sightseeing. Renting or bringing a bicycle or scooter is helpful.

Great location for a pleasant getaway

I went with my wife to Key West and stayed at Duval House for a night. The location couldn't be any better considering that it's almost in the center of Duval street with all restaurants and shops close by. The complex is pretty small but that kinds of adds to its charm. The Deluxe unit we got was very pretty with hardwood floors, king size bed, nice wardrobes and they added some personal touch with a flower on top of the folded bathtowels kept on the bed. The breakfast is ok. Nice coffee with some bagels and muffins. They also had different types of cereals and some fruits. It was cool that they write the day's weather of the city from which all their current guests are from on a whiteboard in the breakfast area. The garden was very beautiful. Parking is cramped and it is not free (something that is not very obvious from the hotel's description). Overall, it was a good experience.
