The length of my husband's hospital stay was extended due to some post-operative problems. I found Alexander Inn a very comfortable example of a privately owned historical hotel. The staff was very warm and accommodating to my daily extension of my reservation. There was a complimentary breakfast. When I returned in the evening there was always fruit and Danish available....

I will have to spend some time at Penn Hospital over the next few weeks, and we stayed here for our first visit recently. Described as a "boutique" hotel, and I had to look that definition up. It fits. Slightly eclectic, "art deco" in some respects, very comfortable (my wife thought the pillows were to hard. I thought they were... More

Came here with my boyfriend this weekend for a Muse concert and sight seeing. We chose this place because they are running a winter special, and boy were we pleased! The location is fantastic. Close to all the restaurants and shops we were interested in. Also easy to get to public transit. Check in was a breeze and the room... More

The Alexander is a cute boutique hotel tucked in the middle of the action in Philly. Whether you are looking to visit the historic attractions or hip restaurants and bars--all were easily within walking distance. Front desk got us a cab for further venues such as U Penn. We had a corner room that was a little cramped, but perfect... More

This is by far one of the best hotels I've stayed in...location is great, hotel is old world charm, clean, comfortable, and the staff is truly what made it the top...they went out of their way to accommodate us for early check in, to help with a parking snafu, store items, etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you...

This hotel was recommended to me by a Philadelphia resident - the location was near the hip South Philly area - great restaurants, clubs and shops, just a couple of blocks from South Street. A short taxi ride to Center City and museums. Very comfortable, good amenities, courteous staff.

Did I say location? You are in the heart of the "gayborhood". You will be within a half mile of the theater district, fine dining, popular and cutting edge dining, Academy of Music, coffee shops, delicatessens and for me close to major hospitals in case you need to be near a loved one or working a double shift for one...

I selected this hotel for it's location, in the Washington Square neighborhood. It was centrally located and we even walked to the Barnes Foundation (a 30-minute walk). The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was quite small, with a queen bed. The bed was comfortable enough and the bathroom was roomy. Our room was on the 6th floor, overlooking... More

This little boutique hotel is a gem that I have been fortunate to have found several years ago. I believe this is my third stay here - I don't get into Center City Philadelphia often or it would be many, many more. The rooms are furnished with art deco furniture and the art work is modern and very much appreciated.... More
