Pluses:  Clean and comfortable. Staff was very cordial and helpful. Convenient to the Duval Street and Old Town activities.

Minuses: Key West really needs to enforce a noise ordinance. Between the scooters and the Harley’s we had vehicles constantly blasting noise into our room at all hours of the day and night.

My wife and I traveled with 2 other couples to Key West over Christmas (Dec19-26) for a get away from the snow. We have been to Key West 3 times prior to this over the last 10 years.

The Cypress House was chosen as we stayed at The Lighthouse Court on a previous trip and it was a very nice hotel & part of the same chain of hotels.

We were extremely happy with the Cypress House. The staff there was very friendly from check-in to check-out. We enlisted their help several times for boat rentals, wheelchair rental & recommendations for activities. The hotel has a nice (albeit basic) free breakfast every day, served from 8-10 in the courtyard which is a nice way to start the day. They also have Happy Hour everyday around the pool at 5pm with a different selected drink served free and unlimited every day. This was lots of fun and the staff made the event a party each night.

We stayed in room #17, it was a huge second floor room and had a king bed, flat screen TV and a beautiful bathroom with a walk-in glass shower that would fit 6 people! The room also had a nice front porch to chill One of the other couples we travelled with stayed in room #1 and it was also a large beautiful room with a great big front porch where we met for drinks each afternoon to watch the world go by.

The hotel’s location is absolutely perfect!! Only 2 blocks from Duval and centrally located close to all the action on the water. The only issue may be that this location can be loud (due to morning traffic) however earplugs and/or white noise from the AC does a great job. They also have a parking area for scooters, which we rented for the week at the rental location one block from the hotel.

I highly recommend the Cypress House for couples especially. Lots of fun, great location & friendly staff, plus a little architectural history thrown in for fun.

Cheers!

Our bedroom (#6) was wonderful!!!  Staff were all very friendly and helpful.  Having the parking garage which we paid through the hotel worked out very well.  The sink in the bathroom, although very pretty is difficult to use because of the depth.  The cooked part of the breakfast was not great looking and the same thing was out for the 2 days we were there for breakfast….we didn’t try it but maybe it was good…..the location was great….we would definitely stay here again on a trip to key west.  Loved the drinks and snacks in the afternoon ‘Liming’ ….fish pate was excellent!!!

We had a wonderful stay at the Cypress House.  We will definitely be back.  The location was so nice and convenient to the wharf, Mallory Square and Duval Street.   It was perfect!  The room was lovely.

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary with a stay at Cypress House.  The property was immaculately kept.  The room was quiet and well appointed.  Staff was very friendly and attentive.  Breakfast was above the norm too. Very short walk to Duval Street.  We plan to make this hotel our place to stay in Key West from now on.

Our stay was so relaxing, from the relaxing court yard to large walk in shower. The only thing I would like to have had was a coffee pot in the room.

Andrea and I came to Key West on Friday, November 23, 2012 and stayed two nights at the Cypress House. Though this was my tenth trip to Key West in the past 25 years, and Andrea’s second though the first was simply a day visit while on a cruise, I had never stayed any place outside of a hotel. This time my intention was to do what I could to introduce Andrea to the side of Key West beyond the Duval Street experience and try to bring a little more historical imagery into our time spent on the island. The centerpiece to that was to stay in an inn somewhere in “the neighborhood” and the Cypress House was my choice. We truly enjoyed the experience.

It was so nice to be away from Duval Street, to readily access and walk the surrounding streets, to try the establishments that the “Duval Crawlers” generally don’t visit, and relax somewhat. I did throw a lot at Andrea by us walking a substantial portion of west Key West but she did enjoy it. Yes, we were on Duval Street (sadly it has turned into any other tourist trap I have been to and has lost so much of its charm of so many years ago, but oh well), yes we found a few new places coupled with a few old haunts, but we knew that each night we would return to quiet comfort of the Cypress House.

The staff were terrific, the restfulness was comforting, the Happy Hour was “happily enjoyed” and the breakfast sparked the start of each morning. We had a wonderful stay at the Cypress House and if and when we once again are able to return to Key West you can be assured that we will try to include the Cypress House, or maybe one of the other related properties, in our consideration for our island habitation. As well, I will encourage others in our circle who might want to visit Key West, to strongly consider experiencing what we did by staying at the Cypress House.

Thank you for helping us have a truly enjoyable visit to Key West.

Cordially,

Marty Piepenbrok, and in concert with Andrea Haze

We spent 5 nights there in October. The entire staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean, had beautiful details and was spacious. It also had a nice second floor patio deck which we used every night watching the crowds and having some wine we bought. The breakfast in the morning was more than the usual continental breakfasts offered by others hotels in town and early evenings they had this Liming Social Hour with light snacks and a drink that changed every day. We had a nice time talking to other guests there too. Great location one block from Duval Street. All in all a very, very nice experience and we will definitely stay there again.

It was my first trip to Key West, and the staff at the Cypress House was very nice and friendly. They were also very helpful in giving me directions to attractions and other sites I was interested in.  The Cypress House will most certainly be the choice for my next visit to Key West!

Our thanks to all the staff at Cypress House. Our room was very clean and comfortable, the breakfasts and happy hours were more than we anticipated, and you have some of the friendliest and helpful staff.

The location was perfect…right smack dab in the middle of all the places we wanted to be at with our Parrothead friends, yet quiet enough to sit and relax by the pool.

Can’t wait to come back some day!
