We have stayed at Alexander's numerous times over the years It is our "go to" place in Key West. From the moment we walked in the door until the moment we reluctantly left to return home, the experience was perfect. Every single staff person is attentive, warm, friendly and completely focused on the needs of their guests. It was our...

We recently stayed at Alexander's to celebrate a friend's birthday. This was our second time. As with our first trip, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They searched for a restaurant that could accommodate a party of 12 on a Saturday night during high season -- no small feat. And, another night placed orders for pizza for us when...

Would recommend to any and everyone. Puts four and five "diamond" resorts to shame. Wonderful staff !!! Off the path but not too far. Very comfortable and classy environment. Hands down the best lodging experience in many moons. ***Epitome of hospitality.

My partner and I have stayed here many times and one thing always remains the same. That would be, that the class and style of the building and grounds are only exceeded by that of the people working there. From the General Manager Laura, to the front desk Georgia Peach Nina, to all the others who make Alexander's such a...

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.

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,...
