My husband and I recently spent the night here during a quick Key West getaway. The last time we stayed it was out on the Business District which was too far away from the “action”, so we started looking for a place in town. As I researched hotels and B&B’s, I came across the Historic Key West Inns hotels which fit the bill perfectly. Cypress House had availability for our date, so we were set!
Upon our arrival, we couldn’t find a place on the street to park, so I went in to the office to see about parking and check in. One of the staff actually went out and flagged down my husband to show him where to park temporarily. Check in was smooth and efficient. Our room wasn’t quite ready, but they took our bags to our room and directed us to the parking garage up the street where we could leave the car during our stay. They also took our phone number so they could text us when the room was ready. We walked around the Marina for a bit and had a drink at the Schooner Wharf. It wasn’t too long before we got the text that our room was ready to go!
We were escorted to Room 12, which is on the lower level. The room was spacious and immaculate. It was decorated simply but it was lovely and welcoming. The shower in the bathroom was enormous, and it had wall dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and body wash, all of which were very good. We were invited to the “liming hour” where we enjoyed Sangria and Conch Fritters. (each day is a different selection) The courtyard and pool area are very relaxing and definitely had that old Key West feel.
The next morning we enjoyed a Continental Breakfast by the pool. There was fruit, yogurt, cereal and local pastries available, and a hot dish, which was biscuits and gravy that day. Beverages included juices and some excellent coffee. We definitely wished we could have stayed a second night!
The entire staff is to be commended for their wonderful hospitality and professionalism. We will definitely stay here again the next time we come to Key West! I am also a travel agent and will highly recommend Cypress House to my clients and friends. Thank you for a memorable and relaxing 24 hours!
