We stayed in room 15 a one bedroom cottage near the pool. The rooms are very spacious and clean. There was plenty of room for our two young children, my husband and myself in the cottage, at no time did we feel cramped or crowded. All of the staff is extremely welcoming and helpful from front desk to housekeeping. And the resident cat Jordan was a delight for the kids. They serve a nice continental breakfast in the morning by the pool with muffins, bagels, cereals, fruit, hard boiled eggs, etc. In the afternoon iced tea, books and towels are provided as well. The hotel is very conveniently located a block off Duval and a short walk to Mallory Square, so you are close to everything but not right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. It was a great hotel that I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Location couldn't be better. Lots of outdoor space for relaxing. Our room was very comfortable and had nice design features with hardwood floors and exposed ceiling joists. The area was quiet, but only a few minutes walk to Duval Street. All-in-all, it was perfect!

Loved staying here. Friendly staff, clean room, and only a block away from Duval Street. I would definitely stay here again....and the resident cat is cute too.

Small but cozy and charming room. Staff was very pleasant. There was a giant white cat around to keep the guests company. Only a couple blocks from duval. Might be slightly over priced for what you get, but overall I'd recommend this place to a friend.

Location is great, running parallel to Duval Street so that it's a short walk away to the great restaurants and bars along that road. The parking lot takes a bit to find if you haven't visited before. The rooms were nice and the service very accommodating.


LOLOL ☀️ Last month the Papa Hemingways, who were at our Cypress House Hotel in Key West for Hemingway Days, and our hotel manager Danielle, had a chance to be in a funny piece for Google's cool OnHub and it's just gone live! The Papa's are in #2. Now they'll be even more famous around the world! We had a bunch of fun doing this. Hope you enjoy it too! Watch it here:
Cypress House hotel is located in a lush, tropical landscape. Tailored for the adult visitor and only blocks from Margaritaville and the seaport. Book Now!

Twas the day before Christmas in old Key West, when Jordan del Gato laid down for a rest. He hung out in the garden sunbathing with ease, dreaming of chasing lizards and relaxing as he pleased.... 
Merry, merry Christmas everyone from all of us at our Historic Key West Inns & Hotels ! 🎄🎉

Taking the seaplane out to the Tortugas today! Have you done this while on your trip to Key West too? It's a beautiful way to get here and you get to see turtles and ship wrecks from the air on the way over. It's a nice way to spend a Saturday. We can help you get out here too, just let us know when you make your reservation. 800.549.4430

Saturday Key West Kookiness & Art Sculpture Parade. We're constantly amazed by our little town. The creativity, enthusiasm and love of art fill us with laughter and joy! Papio's Kinetic Sculpture Parade debuted down Duval street this morning and we really loved these human powered inventions!

Goooood morning from Key West! It's a sunny 75 degrees heading up to 81 this afternoon. How many of you have seen our Conch Republic flag painted on the wall at the airport? It always makes us smile. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Come visit us soon!

Jordan del Gato is chillin' out by the pool today, but a little shy right now.

We've decided that it's about time for an afternoon nap in the sun at Smather's Beach in Key West. What do you think, good idea?
