Had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Alexander Inn. A quick and easy check in meant we were out on the sights in no time. It's in a terrific location well within walking distance of most of the city's attractions and a friendly greeting from all the staff made you feel welcome. Would stay there again and would have no...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alexander Inn. The check-in was easy and fast. We parked our car right across the street while we chcked in and then took our car to their discounted garage down the street - 3 blocks. We had a corner room - 201 that was ready for us at 10:30 in the morning. Yea! We...

My wife and I have stayed at various Philly hotels for weekend get-a-ways. This was our first stay at the Alexander Inn. We will be back. A friendly and helpful staff. A great neighborhood location (safely walk to good restaurants, bars, shopping, historical sites, quiet at night). Clean rooms (well decorated & insulated from street noise, some are small). Value-priced...

Even though I book standard room which is not big. However, they have every thing you need in the room and very well organized. Most importantly, staffs there are well trained and very friendly. Great choice of bath lotion as well.

My husband and I stayed at the Alexander Inn for three days. We were very happy with the location, easy walk to all the historical area's and we are in our late 50's. Plus it was a very hot day....well into the 90's! We stayed in a delux queen room and found it very comfortable and clean. I liked that...

I just got back from a three night stay at the Alex Inn. It was a delight. The staff is incredible. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was wonderful (loved the fresh grapefruit). It is conveniently located. The room rates are extremely affordable by Philadelphia standards. Our room, while small, was clean and cute. We had a room with a...

This locally-owned boutique hotel is perfectly located in Central City. The rooms are small but comfortable, the staff friendly and there when you need them. Breakfast is excellent; it puts many chains to shame. Coffeemakers in the rooms would be nice but not a major factor. Parking is at a lot three blocks,away and at a reduced rate. Highly recommended....

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor and followed the advice that, if it was booked via the various online services, we should call directly. We did just that and got a room for the one night we needed. We requested early check-in, and they worked with us on that. Our room was large and had a nice view. The...

We just returned from a six night stay at the Alexander Inn. Our top floor room was clean, and had a very comfortable bed. As others have stated the rooms are on the small side, but after sight seeing all day all we wanted was a place to sit and put up our feet. Our small a/c kept the room...
