Once again in true Key West style, Cypress House Hotel exceeded my expectations with attentive and thoughtful service. I arrived on Sunday evening, and the gentleman at the desk greeted me with a “Welcome Back.” It made me smile, and it felt like I was returning home.
The atmosphere of calm and tranquility was like an invisible hand on my shoulder reassuring that for a little while there were no burdens to contend with.
While checking in, which was quick and smooth, I enjoyed a glass of lemon water which is always available by the inviting pool area. My room was perfect. It was so inviting; I almost did not want to go out. But what a perfect spot, so close to so many entertaining and traditional thought provoking experiences.
There are many excellent places to dine and one of my favorites, Michael’s, is a comfortable walk with lots to see on the way. Also just three blocks away are two more of my favorites. Two Friends and Shots & Giggles. Two Friends serves and entertains all day, every day and you may catch a live radio breakfast show on every other Friday. For a night cap, Shots & Giggles is the place to meet locals and enjoy true Key West night lifestyle.
I only wish I could have stayed longer, but no worries. I will return for many more visits and stay at the Cypress House Hotel as my first choice.
As a footnote, I have been visiting Key West since 1979, and the Cypress House is among the very best. Hats off to the ownership, management and staff … and Thank You to them!
