The rooms at Cypress Inn all share a Spanish-Moorish design, though they have different features from room to room. The courtyard room we stayed in the new part of the hotel had a couple upgraded features, including a gas fireplace and a jetted tub. A little garden with a camellia bush was located just outside the French-paned door to our room. The floor is covered with gleaming Saltillo terracotta tile with colorful Spanish-Moorish tile accents, the architectural archway over the bed, the dusty rose ceiling and the inlaid octagonal table picked up the exotic theme. A large mirror with a woven pattern frame and two gold-framed prints of aloe vera and succulent in macro view adorn the walls. The room’s focal point is the bed covered with a gold and carnelian spread and white linens. A pair of ottomans with turned spiral pattern on its legs hugs the base of the bed; they also make a handy luggage rack. Dark wood chests with a leaf and floral engraving sit on either side of the bed holding lamps with white drum shades and curving black bases. An ornate gold bowl on one nightstand holds honey-roasted nuts, apples and an orange, while a Sony Dream Machine is on the other table. Next to the bed, a brown leather armchair makes a perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of cream sherry from the decanter on the small Moroccan table. The bathroom is long and swathed in golden travertine, the water closet and towel racks are at one end with a tub and shower at the other. In the center, Middle Eastern inspired lights illuminate the mirror and counter. The rooms at Cypress Inn have a warm décor and offer everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Cypress Inn’s rooms all offer modern amenities and luxurious Mediterranean-inspired furnishings that complement the hotel’s décor. You’ll find 32 classic rooms in the original building, plus 12 larger deluxe queen rooms and king suites that all include fireplaces in the new wing added in 2005. The entire hotel is seamlessly connected by elevator, stairways and covered balcony. All rooms are plushly appointed with southern Mediterranean-style furnishings, carpeting and Saltillo tile, as well as fresh flowers and fruit to greet you on arrival. Modern amenities include flat-screen televisions, free Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, nightly turndown service and a complimentary copy of USA Today. Some rooms have French balconies or verandas, and the vistas vary between courtyard, sunset or partial ocean views. All second-story rooms have vaulted ceilings braced by handcrafted wood beams. Bathrooms are sumptuous and are stocked with exclusive toiletries and fluffy robes; those in the suites are swathed in marble. The bath features vary: rooms may have tub/shower, separate tub and shower, shower-only designs, or jetted tubs. If you’re feeling peckish, open up a snack or pour yourself some cream sherry or bottled water — they’re all complimentary. Pooches get pampered at Cypress Inn too: Pet blankets and bowls are available upon request.
