We stayed at the Cypress House Hotel in November of 2014 for four days and our stay was outstanding. This was our first trip to Key West. We researched several different lodging options – comparing everything from cost to location to amenities. There is no doubt we picked a gem with the Cypress House and we knew it from the moment we exited the cab.
We were greeted very warmly upon arrival. The fine gentleman at the front desk grabbed a bag for us as we were shown to our room. We booked a standard king room but we were upgraded to a balcony king at no charge. The room was great and the shared balcony was perfect for relaxing, absorbing the sounds of Key West and for enjoying a fine cigar. Cypress House does have a small but beautiful pool with towels available poolside. The location of the Cypress House was perfect. Just two blocks off of Duval Street with Mallory Square just a 5 minute walk.
Every morning an awesome complimentary breakfast was served downstairs in the outdoor patio room. Fruit, bagels, egg burritos, biscuits and gravy, juice, coffee and much more. We were able to enjoy a hearty breakfast that lasted us well into the afternoon. Liming hour was then offered in the late afternoon and once again – awesome. Liming = complimentary light food, a rotation of adult beverages and an opportunity to talk with fellow vacationers. After that, dinner was enjoyed all over Key West – Cuban cuisine to seafood.
Every member of the staff we interacted with was super friendly – couldn’t have been better. If there was one item that was slightly inconvenient it would be this (no fault of the Hotel). Our room was positioned on the corner of the hotel and below us during the mornings was a very busy intersection. Car and truck traffic, periodic horns and the occasional loud pipe cycle. This inconvenience was not enough to knock this gem from our 5-star grade though. In a strange way, the morning traffic actually acted as an alarm clock for us.
Our first trip to Key West was full of great memories and the Cypress House certainly played a large part. Friendly, affordable, clean, great location, and the breakfast and liming can help save on your food costs too. We recommend!! Guaranteed we will stay here again!!By: Eric Bohn February 1, 2015
