“Another Great Stay at the Alexander”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

Our second vacation in Miami, second stay at the Alexander and just as good as last year. I had asked for a high floor, seaview and corner location in advance [on recommendation from Tripadvisor reviews], but this combination entailed an Ocean Front Suite which wasn't in my budget, however, the hotel delivered with a beautiful suite on the 17th floor and a very good valet parking rate for our two vehicles.
I have no complaints whatsoever about this hotel and as on our last stay here, we were treated with courtesy and friendliness, by management, frontdesk, valet parking, housekeeping et al. There were a few hiccups with plumbing and the in room safe but they were sorted out very quickly.
Check in was a breeze and there was already a welcome pack awaiting us. Our suite on the [top]17th floor was superberb, large, clean, well equipped and decorated with a great view of the Atlantic Ocean. It was cleaned and serviced everyday needing two housekeeping staff to service it.
Internet access was effortless with the choice of wireless or ethernet connectivity costing $50 for 7 days [$150 for a month], this was comparable to the rate we had in New York a few monthe earlier.
We use the hotel as a base to explore Miami, my family to hit the Malls and me for a spot of deep sea fishing either heading south to Alton, or north to Haulover, marinas and cook either freshly caught fish, or local produce in the well equipped kitchen [which saved a fortune in eating out for a family of four adults].Valet parking is compulsory at $26 per night, however, try and negotiate a better deal in advance especially if you have more than one vehicle.
The hotel has spa and resort facilities but as we didn't used them, I can't comment on them, my family, however, spent some time on the beach which you walk unto from the hotel.
There is nothing but other hotels and residences witihin immediate walikng distance so you will need transport to get to shopping or attractions.
I can recommend this hotel and should we return to Miami, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. My experience here and most places I've visited is that if you go with an open mind, you will generally have a good experience, if you treat the staff and other guests with respect you will receive the same and better treatment, if you look for something to complain about, you will will find it, after all, if you turn over enough stones, you are certain to find a worm underneath one.

Room Tip: High rooms give a great view, communicate your [reasonable]requirements to reservations in advance a...

If you are vacationing in Miami with parents, grandparents, and children, staying at multi-room suite hotels along the beach is the only way to go. The cost per person is low and the views are fabulous.

My son and his family including three of us grandparents loved our stay at the Alexander Hotel. None of us had ever stayed in Miami in a hotel. The ocean view from our 12-th floor porch was great.

We ate off-site as to more fully enjoy the favor of Miami Beach. Although we did enjoyed the poolside drinks and snacks. The commercial area of North Beach is only two miles north of the hotel.

Ours was just a one-night stay because we headed off to Key West for two nights. I wish we could've found suites there.

Another sightseeing tip if you fly into Ft Lauderdale is drive down highway A1A and rubberneck. It's direct and more fun than the interstate.

Although we did not use it, there was a full kitchen in the suite. Another plus was beach access.

Room Tip: Suite porches are on the north and south side of the building. Either side has an on ocean view to e...

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel, the location was perfect, right on the ocean. Our room was fantastic, it was clean and the view was amazing. We had dinner at Shula's 3 times and the food was delicious and cooked perfectly every time, Alex the bartender there, was so great! He rememberd our names every night we came down there. We loved every min of my stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: We were on the 15th floor and had a great view and heard very little noise.

On my first attempt to start searching for Hotels to host my wedding reception i came across the Alexander Hotel and fell in love with the hotel and Ballroom. I immediately booked and didn't even continue my search. I spent the weekend of my wedding at the hotel ( Friday- Sunday) the staff was so helpful and the HOTEL SUITE was so spacious it included a 2 bedroom, FULL kitchen and living room. All 7 bridesmaids choose to get ready at my room. All my out of town wedding guests also stayed at the Alexander hotel and they had a great experience as well. This will definitely not be my last time staying at this hotel.
** Don Shulas resturant was DELICIOUS and it's located in the Hotel****

Room Tip: ocean front

The Alexander Hotel represents the finest service, and the best beachfront, and a great restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner, at the lowest possible price, of any hotel in Miami Beach. This hotel is like staying with family, tht's how at home they make you feel. It is fine for families as well as adults looking to get away to a nice, quiet, well kept hotel. It is not brand new, but for us that made it all the more comfortable. Tasteful yet completely at ease. Where else can you get over 800 square feet of living space, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a sitting area, and be on the best beach in Miami Beach, for half the cost of what you would pay anywhere else.

If you're not into glitz, but are into good taste, a down home feeling with wonderful staff, and very comfy accomadations, this is the place to stay. Mariella manages the hotel, Vladimir is your personal concierge and on-site computer expert, lots of bellman and excellent waitstaff that serve a great breakfast and lunch, and a fine steakhouse as well. Plus, with all the money I saved, I had enough to tip everyone well who helped us. What's not to like? Five stars in my book !!!

Room Tip: Be nice, be friendly, and remember, everyone enjoys being rewarded for good service.
