From the moment we arrived we were so happy. We arrived at 11am to drop our bags off but we're told our room was ready. Bonus! We were also told we could help ourselves to the breakfast if we wanted. The rooms are clean and neat, the double bed is a good size and the hotel staff are so helpful,... More

I stayed at the Alexander Inn for a teacher conference at the Marriott and convention center. I didn't want to share a room and my mother had stayed here and suggested this hotel. It is a very unique hotel and super cool - staff was great - room was small but perfect for me. LOVED the neighborhood too. The second... More

Our third time at the Alexander Inn and, as usual, the service and accommodations exceeded our expectations. As an historic boutique hotel, you can expect the rooms to be small, but they are comfortable and excellently appointed. The Innkeeper, John, assures each guest receives first class service, and the generous breakfast (serve - yourself cereal, yogurt, fruit, pasteries, etc) is... More

We booked several rooms for a wedding. John the manager was amazing. He went above and beyond to make sure everything went well for us and our guests. I really can't say enough about the service. I absolutely recommend whether you are staying as a couple or a group.

We stayed here for 1 night at the end of June. Our room was small but lovely with ensuite; it catered for our needs as it was clean, comfortable and had ac. The location is great for nearby shops, restaurants and tourist sights. It is also handy for the tour bus which stops around 5 minutes walk away. Breaksfast was... More

I was nervous about this place given the unbelievable price, but trusted the other reviewers. They had it spot on. The location was excellent, within walking distance of plenty of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, the independence mall and city hall. My wife and I easily unloaded our bags in the loading zone across from the entrance. Check in staff was... More

What a great find, a lovely find in Philadelphia in a great area close to everything. The rooms are a little small and the beds are not a full double size but this is an older building with a great atmosphere - it really is a home away from home. And it is spotless the cleaning staff do make a... More

Great location for this hotel and a good price for the area. About a 15 minute walk to the Independence Hall Park. Breakfast was good, rooms are quiet. Bathroom a bit on the small side. We only double beds in our room. Would be better if there was in room coffee. Area is trendy with tons of eclectic food places.

We stayed at the Alexander Inn this June. The hotel is beautifully decorated with an array of original artwork. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. However, one of the best elements of this hotel is the staff. They are more than willing to help you with anything you need. They definately made our stay enjoyable. This hotel is definately... More

Our experience was so wonderful. We needed a place to stay (on 2 separate occasions) as one person in our party was undergoing medical procedures at Jefferson Hospital. We were treated so well, and were very comfortable in our rooms. Breakfast was great.
