We stayed here May 30 for 1 night. Very clean and comfortable hotel, situated within walking distance to many things to do. If you need a taxi they come by out front or the men at the front desk will call one for you. The breakfast they provide is very nice, and it will give you enough to get you... More

The Alexander Inn is a wonderful hotel in a great location. Many of Philly's attractions are walkable and the Washington Square area has many good places to eat and drink (including Tria - a wonderful place on the opposite corner to the hotel). Yet the hotel is very peaceful and seems a world away from Broad St or Market St... More

This a very comfortable boutique hotel. Rooms are clean and well-appointed. Staff was super-friendly. Room/bathroom average size for a boutique hotel (ie smaller than standard hotel rooms). The location is what differentiates this hotel from so many others we stayed in Philly). It's on a quiet residential, safe area on a tree-lined street, far enough away from the hustle, bustle,...

Recently, I had a one-night stay in the Alexander and I was very pleased and comfortable here. I always feel welcomed by the staff. I've stayed here 40 plus times over the past five or so years and have always enjoyed my visits. It's economical, has welcoming and helpful staff and is well located for public transportation.

Complementary breakfast (cold foods) was plentiful and fresh. Wifi internet access in rooms, cable access in common area. Everything is clean. Small boutique hotel. Room windows open. Exercise room is not huge but sufficient.

Stayed overnight in Philly to attend a concert, and had to catch a flight to Las Vegas the next day. Room was ready and available and the gentleman at the front desk was welcoming and friendly. The rooms are smaller, if you're used to chain hotels, but the design and style was pure Philadelphia classic architecture. Great set of windows... More

Small boutique hotel with loths of Philadelphia, historic charm. Very nice staffing (thank you John for everything you did to make us feel welcome). Beds were so comfortable, rooms very clean. I was there with lots of friends and family for my daughters wedding. The location is great and so is the value for this wonderful neighborhood in Philadelphia.

I stayed at the Alexander Inn for two nights in connection with a business trip. I was originally planning to stay at a different downtown hotel, but the price at that hotel was outrageous (apparently because it was graduation week in Philadelphia), and a friend tipped me off to the Alexander Inn. I'm glad I switched; I saved about $450... More

We recently spent three nights at the Alexander Inn and were quite pleased in all respects. A historic building that has been redesigned and refurbished as a boutique hotel, it offers character, comfort, and convenience at a very reasonable price. Our room was not large but was adequate for the amount of time we spent in it. The staff is... More
