Alexander's Gay and Lesbian Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 4, 2008

My partner and I spent a long weekend at Alexanders at the end of March. We needed some R&R since we had both been very busy with work. We were welcomed as soon as we arrived, and were very impressed with the property and the staff. Happy hour was fun and we looked forward to it each night.

One amazing little find that added to our enjoyment was a small Cuban restaurant (Paradise Cafe) 2 blocks away that made the best Cafe con Leche for our early morning walks.

We also toured other properties, and none impressed us as much... we will definitely be back to stay at Alexanders.

Stayed: March 2008

We just returned about a week ago from our stay at Alexander's Guesthouse! What a beautiful place. I can't say enough about the service, the rooms, the staff...everything was beautiful and friendly.

The happy hour social every night from 4:30-6:30 pm is awesome and allows all guests to meet and socialize. We met so many interesting people and had a great time.

We can't wait to go back next year! We will only stay at Alexander's Guesthouse each time we come back, there isn't another guesthouse that can compare!

There are many historic guest houses among the accommodations in the popular tourist mecca of Key West, Florida. Certainly one of the best (if not The best) for the gay traveler is Alexander's.

My recent stay was one of several I have made to this facility in recent years. From their helpful attitude when making a reservation, to the final farewell as one prepares to leave this island paradise, the staff at Alexander's is warm, friendly, helpful and dedicated to making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Rooms vary in size and decor, but all of them are clean, efficient and accommodating. A swimming pool, hot tub and pool-side bar add to the general ammenities of the property. And, as is common in Key West, flowers and tropical foliage surround the entire resort.

A buffet breakfast is served each morning, and a "happy hour" is part of each late afternoon's festivities. There are no added charges for these "extras."

Guests vary in ages. This guest house attracts international travelers as well as American tourists. Many are return guests. The "winter season" fills up quickly, as do holiday periods and Key West's popular Fantasy Fest week in October. Rates are Key West comparable, but there is a big bang for one's buck at this facility.

If you are looking for a restful time away from your usual grind, a warm winter excursion, or a few tropical breezes in the midst of a hot summer, this is the place to go.

This is the second time our group of friends (17 of us) have stayed at Alexander's. Both times have been lovely. The staff is attentive, courteous and friendly. They were happy to arrange for us anything we needed and offered excellent recommendations for various requests. It is far enough off Duval Street to avoid the tourist rabble, but still very walkable.

We have stayed at Alexander's Guest House in Key West many times and every stay has been terrific. The staff could not be more accommodating and helpful.

The breakfasts are always abundant with daily variations of fresh baked muffins and breads and there is the option of having hot egg dishes prepared at an omelet station. Fresh Fruit is always available as well as an assortment of hot and cold cereals. One morning the cook even pan sauteed fresh fish caught by a guest for all to enjoy! The pool and large in-ground hot tub are always kept in perfect condition and there are always large fresh clean towels available at pool side. There is an out door shower and bathroom for the convenience of the guests and there are cold drinks of ice tea or lemonade available all day. There is also a hot and cold water cooler available 24 hours a day. At 4:30 daily there is a two hour happy hour pool side with a full bar. We stay at premium guest houses all around the country and this is a very unusual offering. The bar stays even open for a few more hours after the free two hour happy hour period and a bar tab can be run and settled at the end of your stay.

The rooms are always very clean and well appointed. We have stayed in several of the guest rooms including a 12 day stay in the apartment which we would highly recommend. Over all you can not go wrong staying at Alexander's.

We had a great stay at Alexander's in the first week of February. The property is funky, comfortable, and very well-maintained. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. Great location to hang by the pool and relax, or walk to galleries, restaurants and stores. Quiet residential location is much preferable to the tackiness of Duval St.

It was a great introduction to Key West. We'll be back for sure.
