If you’re used to staying at hotels when you travel, staying at a guesthouse requires a change in mind-set. There may not be a 24-hour front desk, or a valet to bring the car around whenever. But, be prepared to sacrifice the anonymity of a cookie cutter chain for a more intimate, personalized experience. The very best guesthouses deliver a superb experience with top notch service and leave you wondering what you ever saw in a hotel anyway. And Alexander’s Guesthouse is the cream of the crop at delivering a superb experience.
The very visible front desk employees deliver extraordinary personal service. They know your name, what room you’re in and engage with you as you come and go, offering help with any need along the way. They take your pleasure personally and feel it’s their responsibility to ensure you have a good time, with helpful suggestions catered to your travel personality. Maps, tour tickets, bike rentals, dinner reservations, excursions – they do it all. When Agnes heard that the guided cemetery tour wasn’t happening one morning, I had a printed copy of the self-guided tour almost immediately. They are a font of knowledge that you won’t get at a hotel chain. It’s not quite Anna Madrigal, but you will feel like family. Kudos to the employees I interacted with the most: Agnes, Jeff and Charlie.
Guesthouses also have a personality. Alexander’s is one of peace and quiet, inclusiveness and relaxation. Everyone is welcome. Period. And that sort of welcome allows everyone to be themselves, to relax and enjoy their vacation. It’s a job they do well.
The rooms are well decorated and cute, the expanded continental breakfast is delicious with a little individual touch each day and the hospitality is unparalleled.
There’s a reason Alexander’s is rated at the top of the travel listing for Key West. It’s their dedication to providing you the best experience possible.
