My partner and I stayed at the Alexander Inn for seven nights during the first week of June. The place met or exceeded all expectations... spotlessly clean, with stylish room decor and a desk staff who were friendly and engaging, I am not sure why previous reviewers complained of "dark halls" and "dark rooms." The hallways were illuminated with soft,...

We stopped here for one night, the room we got was quiet small and dated, the bathroom was very tiny and cramped. The toilet got clogged which we later found out was a common issue with the inn due to the plumbIng, The staff were prompt to correct the issue and were extremely friendly. The inn is located in a...

The decor was gorgeous and the hotel was extremely clean. The staff was friendly, helpful and fun. The location was in the middle of everything and in a safe neighborhood. This was the best hotel I have been to in a very long time. I wish every hotel was like the Alexander Inn.

The staff goes out of its way to accommodate you, make you feel comfortable and welcomed! It's worth the stay for their helpfulness alone. The Inn is located near the major performing arts spaces, and within walking distance from most attractions. Fantastic restaurants surround the hotel. The rooms are cozy and provide enough of what you need--the bed was particularly...

The Alexander was a small gem, a boutique hotel within an easy walk of Philadelphia's downtown business district, interesting retail and a wide variety of restaurants. I stayed for five days in May 2012 and would happily return. Highlights: the staff was attentive, professional, cheerful and helpful. The coffee on the breakfast buffet was quite good and the rest of...

We recently stayed at this hotel for 1 night. We chose this hotel mainly because of price and location. However, it will forever remain in my memory because... my boyfriend proposed to me there! The positive points about this property: - Location. Great! If you need to be right in the center of the city, it is perfect. We actually...

I think my title says it all. I stayed at the Alexander Inn for a total of 10 nights and LOVED it. What did I like best? The service from the front desk staff. I am also in the service industry and know that good service comes from the heart. ALL the staff working at the front desk are never...

We stayed at the Alexander Inn for my daughters' law school graduation. The location was perfect since the ceremony was held at the Kimmel Center just two blocks away. There were many places to choose from as far as food all around the area (including Jose Garces Trading Company). The Continental Breakfast was the typical coffee, fruit, cereal and bagels...

We stayed 1 night here as part of a mini tour of the East coast. The hotel has a certain charm to it, with stylish decor and a neat boutique feel. The room was a lot smaller than I was expecting however. A small amount of leg-space around a large double bed was pretty much it, with a small bathroom...
