Whats better than satisfaction?...consistancy! Our second stay at The Alexander Inn was as wonderful as our first. The location, price,cleanliness and attention to detail is only outdone by the friendliness and hospitality of the inn keepers. This is now OUR place when visiting Philly.

My friend booked this hotel as she was in town for a convention. This hotel is very charming and has lots of character. It is perfectly situated in a residential area and was in walking distance of everything we wanted to see. The front desk staff John, Chuck and Joe were very helpful and had great recommendations for scenic routes... More

It was so great to find a clean, reasonably priced hotel in an incredible section of Philly that had a remarkable staff. You could tell the owners have so much pride in this hotel. This lovely place had so much character. It was so charming, I wish we could have stayed longer. The location couldn't be more perfect. There are... More

First the room, roomy, comfortable, very clean, attractive; ours also had a delightful view. Breakfast was tasty, with a good variety of foods, again an attractive room and other guests with whom one could mingle or not. The hotel was built in 1906, it has been beautifully and artistically refurbished. The location is great, an interesting neighborhood and we were... More

I've stayed at all the big name hotels in Philly as well as several boutique hotels and I can say that when it comes to price, location and friendly staff, The Alexander is the best place to stay in town. Clean, comfortable rooms, smaller than the rooms in the big chains but cozy in a way they just can't match.... More

A nice hotel in a good location, close to Independence Hall and other historic sights. Hotel itself is clean and basic, but the inclusions are great considering the price. Would stay here again if in Philly.

This boutique hotel is well located on a very nice and friendly area. Lots of restaurants and places to have a drink there. Hotel is small and there's just one elevator, so there are times where you have to wait a lot. Room was very clean and neat, well decorated. Since I was on a top floor the views of... More

We booked the room with 2 double beds for a family of 3 adults. While the room was big enough for us, there was limited space for our bags. One bed had a base sheet that did not fit the mattress properly so our daughter had less than perfect sleep. I see one other reviewer also had this problem. Apart... More

Loved this boutique hotel which is located in a residential area which also has coffee shops, restaurants, bars and ambience. Walking distance to all attractions. We had the larger room with two double beds. It was just the right size with lots of windows but very quiet. Everything was very clean. Bathroom small but has everything you need. Front desk... More
