There are several gay guesthouses in Key West, but unlike the male-dominated majority of them, 16-room Alexander's makes gay men and lesbians feel equally welcome – along with their straight friends, too. Palms, hibiscus, and bougainvillea shade the two early-1900s houses that comprise Alexander's. Guests are encouraged to mingle and linger outside by the pool, spa, and three levels of sundecks (levels two and three are clothing optional). Some rooms have private patios or balconies. Complimentary evening cocktails and a substantial continental breakfast are served poolside. The only drawback of staying here is the location at the far edge of Old Town, making it a better choice for couples more interested in R&R than nightlife.
