Cypress House Hotel in Key West
Thank you all for the many kind messages of concern and support following Hurricane Irma. We are all still in shock and feeling bruised and battered, but like our beautiful Southernmost Point marker, we will be welcoming you back to our Key West island hotels soon.
Irma Impact Update
We have good news to report. Damage from Irma throughout Key West was lighter than expected. As soon as essential services (water, electricity, phone and internet) are restored and the roads are opened, our team is prepared to clean-up and re-open our Historic Key West Inns hotels. As of this writing, we hope to re-open by October 1st.
Please use the green ‘Book Now’ button on the left side of the website to check real-time availability for arrival dates after October 1st.

Guests holding reservations can rest assured that your deposits are protected as we look forward to assisting with your reservations as soon as possible. Reservation deposits that were established for the closure period will be automatically refunded as soon as our systems are restored and our bank partners can facilitate the transactions.
Historic architecture with updated, modern rooms and amenities are what you will enjoy at our Cypress House Hotel located in the Old Town area of Key West. Cypress House is a stylish historic, boutique Key West hotel with 22 guest rooms located just one block from Duval Street and a few blocks from the seaport; you can walk to Margaritaville, Mallory Square, Key West restaurants, nightlife, and all the things you want to do. This former estate property includes two Classic Bahamian Conch Style houses and one Grand Conch Mansion, dating from 1888 and 1895. The inn is set inside a lush, tropically landscaped, gated property with many comfortable lounging areas.
Guestrooms are located in buildings that are over 120 years old, and are historic landmarks in Key West. Accommodations at this Key West Inn are tailored to adult couples. Rooms are fully updated and are a little bit different from each other, but all have new furnishings and modern amenities that include a private bath, flat-screen TV, and wireless internet service. We provide a continental breakfast and refreshments poolside throughout the day. In the evening we host our ‘Liming At Cypress House – The Art of Doing Nothing’. We serve a nightly cocktail and light appetizers poolside at 4:30pm, perfect snacks to whet your appetite for your evening meal on the town. The 40 foot, heated lap pool area provides a private and comfortable place to relax. Our front desk staff is welcoming and ready to assist with your adventure plans and our location puts you steps away from Key West’s most famous restaurants, bars and shopping. Whether you seek sun, solitude, or a gathering spot for friends, Cypress House offers a perfect location for your next Key West vacation.
The Cypress House Hotel was the estate home of Richard Kemp and his family who moved to Key West from the Bahamas in the early 19th century. Richard Kemp was an avid naturalist and fisherman and the Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle was named after him, having submitted the species for identification in 1880. William Kemp, brother of Richard, introduced the sponge industry from Key West to the New York market and they became prosperous from this business.
On the main building of the property you will note the third-floor eyebrow-style windows tucked under the roof overhang of this Bahamian-influenced home, built after the 1886 fire that destroyed much of Old Town at the time. You can also see hints of the Classic Revival style in the columns as well. The pine and cypress woods used in the 1800s for construction did not require a protective coat of paint and the main building continues that tradition today.
Parking: There is an area in front of the green reception building for guests to load and unload their luggage. Once checked-in, our front desk staff will direct you to the City parking garage nearby on Grinnell and Caroline streets; parking rates apply. We recommend that you park your car and forget it. You are in a perfect location to explore the entire island by walking or bicycling.
