Expert Review

The eco-minded Gardens Hotel manages to stay hidden in plain sight. It's only a half-block from Duval Street, but its walls conceal 17 rooms and one small cottage tucked within four plantation-style buildings on an acre of tropical vegetation. Brick pathways wind through the property, past a turtle habitat, a spa, and sculptures. Rooms have hardwood floors, yew and mahogany furniture, marble bathrooms, and accents created by local artists. Complimentary breakfast is an unhurried affair with table service on the terrace overlooking the pool. Once the island's largest private estate, The Gardens Hotel retains a relaxed, lived-in feel – luxury without stuffiness.
