My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay at Cypress House Hotel over Valentine’s Weekend 2015. We were greeted with smiles at the front desk at check-in, and received a full explanation of how the place operates, including times for the complementary happy hour, breakfast, towels, etc. We felt welcomed and very much at home instantly.
Next we were led to Room 13, which was a great little room with an amazing private courtyard. We loved having the door open to the outside and drinking coffee in the morning sun. Apparently, the weekend was one of the coldest in Key West, but it felt great out there, even in the shade. The bed was comfortable, the room was cozy, our chandelier had a dimmer control to set the mood. The bathroom was clean, the shower had cool marble tiles, the towels were nice.
The location of the hotel is perfect. Off of Duval street enough to feel like you’ve escaped, yet close enough to get there quickly. We walked 90% of the time from the hotel to every coffee shop, restaurant, bar, and beach that we wanted to check out. We loved how close we were to everything.
One example of the service we experienced- We had just returned from the beach and felt like jumping in the pool for a little more swimming time. We were probably late to happy hour by 45 minutes so didn’t expect to have any drinks waiting for us. But one of the hotel employees saw us and another couple playing in the pool and brought us a tray with a jar of screwdriver mix, plastic cups, a bucket of ice, and with a smile said, “enjoy!” Amazing.
We spent a lot of time looking at different places to stay on the island and we’re happy we found and ended up at Cypress House.By: Cary O. February 16, 2015
