Been coming to Alexander's since the beginning of time....1983....been blocks of years when, for one reason or another, I didn't come, but overall, I'm a pretty steady customer and well familiar with the property. I can truly say after this 5 night trip, that the guesthouse is better than eve. Top notch staff headed by 10 year manager, Laura, really...

Alexander's welcomed us with an elegant, sophisticated style, yet was instantly warm and friendly. Our room was very cool (check out the 'cool cat' graphic) and faced a sunny gathering place— the courtyard with pool, bar and sauna. My partner Joe and I were first-timers there but made new friends in no-time! It was early December and the festive tree...

Love my time here, our second visit! Could not ask for a friendlier staff lead by none other than Mrs. Goldie Hawn (latest version) aka Laura. There is an overwhelming welcome and family presence that you will not experience anywhere else. Just do it! You will not regret it. Love, The Senator and Husband

We have been coming to Alexander's for at least 18 years. We are always thrilled with the service and consistency. Complementary happy hour each afternoon is a special treat and we haven't found one as good at another guest house. It's very social and a great opportunity to meet other guests from all over the world. This holiday trip has...

We stayed here 4 nights, just before Christmas, and had a wonderful time. The staff is professional, helpful, friendly, and welcoming. They know how to hire and train employees to ensure guests have a very positive experience. Much appreciated. The guest rooms are in vintage houses, so there's a charming, "old" feel to the property, but the details are clean,...

Just got back from another relaxing vacation in Key West. It was our first time staying AGH and we couldn't have picked a better place. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. Happy hour was always terrific with Val who was incredibly attentive. Tim and Nina were also especially friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great...bloody mary bar on Sunday...

After our second visit here with other nearby guest house visits to compare it to we are confident we found the best. We just left and already rebooked. The staff are attentive, but not pushy; the rooms are luxurious but not pretentious; the breakfast is special. They offer on site bicycle rental that shrinks the island and is a great...

Our first return to Key West since 2010, my 50th birthday and it couldn't have been better. We got a room upgrade, staff were fabulous and every cocktail hour was a great experience.

Great place, lovely rooms, nice pool, a little small but was definitely fun. Happy hour was always friendly. Just 1 frustration for 300$+ per night, breakfast is really poor. Cereal and toast basically, would be nice to have scrambled/poached eggs etc for the price. No reason why they couldn't do it, they're got a fully functional kitchen.
