My boyfriend and I decided to visit Key West over Labor Day weekend and our whole experience at the Cypress House was great from time of making the reservation until check-out. I called to make my reservation and the woman on the phone was very helpful and delightful (note to Florida residents: they *do* have a resident discount so actually picking up the phone is well worth it). We were running a little late and very nicely Jacob at the front desk called to make sure we didn’t need to arrange for someone to be there after 10pm to check us in. I will say check-in was a little hard to find, but that was only because we arrived after dark and were relaying a little too heavily on our GPS. In daylight it’s super obvious. Check-in was a breeze and Jacob walked us to our room and carried my bag.
The room decor was really nice, a wonderful mix of modern and historic. We were in room 1 which is at ground level and at an intersection, and I do have to say if you don’t plan to be out until all hours of the night it would probably be a good to request a different room as it could be a little loud at times from the stop-n-go of traffic. The hotel provided breakfast which was yummy and had different options both days we were there. The location is extremely convenient to Duval Street (and the general tourist area), and it’s extremely easy to just leave your car in the off-site parking garage and walk around your whole visit. The Butterfly Conservatory is the furthest away we walked and that was *maybe* 20 min (although we’re both quite tall and fast walkers). Within a 10 minute walk is a heavenly restaurant called Seven Fish which I would *highly* recommend, we were still talking about it a week later. We also had lunch at the Grand Key West Cafe which is a nice little escape from the madness of Duval St (delicious lemonade). We were checked-out by a lovely young woman whose name I think started with a ‘M’ (Monica maybe??).
My only regret is we couldn’t stay another day and have a chance to enjoy the pool. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Key West.
