We visit KW every 6-8 wks and have always stayed in the big hotels (we have freq guest points + we are timeshare owners at a few), but our new favorite place to stay is the Cypress House Hotel.
First, we actually felt like we were on a vacation, relaxed, no pressure, mellow, chilled… you (we) never get that feeling at the other hotels.
Second the service and people were OUTSTANDING.. above and beyond the call… They presented a great breakfast and had a wonderful afternoon happy hour event. Top notch. Great directions/suggestions. They were cooks/front desk/concierge and more all rolled into each person.
Third, the site and house was amazing. Coming from the New England area, we love these old houses, the history, the feel. We loved the floors, the walls, the décor. Was not that sterile feel you sometimes get from big hotels.
The location is prime! Quick walks to the marina area, Duval Street, Malloy Square. There is no parking (garage a couple blocks away and they give discount rate passes) but that is not a problem if you are going to walk everyplace anyway.
We can not say enough great things about the Cypress House Hotel. If there was ANY negative it is that there are no point(s) system(s) (earning stays etc). We tend to maximize our ROI for each stay/trip/airplane ride and points would be the icing. I can not even say it was a negative to have the internet out in our room (a switch error just in our room) for our stay…made us put away the gadgets and just enjoy.
We look forward to returning very soon.
