My boyfriend and I had a great stay for 3 nights at the boutique hotel, Alexander Inn. The location is perfect since it is in a super cosy part of town filled with sweet coffee shops, interesting restaurants and great bars - all in your doorstep. It's also a really easy walk to the main streets and city hall. If... More

This hotel is a wonderful little gem. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great breakfast and a large comfortable room. It is one of the cleanest hotels and quietest hotels I have stayed in this trip. There are several very good restaurants near by. The tourist area, Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are a bit of a walk, ask... More

Great location, comfortable rooms within easy walking distance to downtown attractions. Desk staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Very little late night street noise. Continental breakfast is pretty basic but also very adequate and a counter point to Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches. Car not needed but discounted parking available near by.

I stayed for 4 nights and would highly recommend this hotel. Tr location is very central and it is easy to walk to most restaurants and attractions. The local area is packed with restaurants and bars- something for everyone within 5 block radius I reckon. The staff are what makes this hotel- they are so friendly and helpful. The breakfast...

I stayed three nights at the Alexander Inn, and it was a fantastic experience! The hotel is located in a great part of the city, and all the major sites were within walking distance. The front desk people were friendly and knowledgable (with kudos to Byron, who gave us wonderful recommendations). I highly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I visited Philly for Labor Day weekend to visit some friends. We stayed at The Alexander Inn for 3 nights 4 days. The staff was more than helpful, the bathroom was adequate, and the room was small, but nice for the price. The room was a bargain at only $150 per night. W loved the colorful neighborhood... More

Truly a gem in Philly. Staff is very kind and accommodating. Room (queen standard) was small but served us fine. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean and towels are soft. Continental breakfast was more than adequate. Would absolutely stay again.
