Perfect location. You can walk anywhere. It's in a lovey area. Great restaurants and sites near. Staff is super kind and helpful. Room was clean and comfy. It was quiet. Parking was hassle free and affordable. I will definitely stay here again. Amazing deal.

I stayed at this great Boutique Hotel on 8/17/16 and it was great in every way except that even with the air conditioner all the way down, it never got cool in the room. I probably should have told someone but seeing that it was 90+ degrees, and the Inn was full, I decided it was just too hot to... More

We didn't actually end of staying here, but felt my experience was worth sharing. My dad was supposed to have a surgery at UPenn, and the staff was extremely kind and helpful from start to finish while we were trying to make our plans. I know we will definitely consider them if we need a place to stay in that... More

Stayed here just one night, had a lovely large corner room. Very courteous staff, and helpful. Room smelled strongly of bleach, but we were able to air it out after rinsing the bathtub. Location was great for visiting Independence hall, etc, and we were able to walk to all. Did have a hard time finding a good restaurant in the... More

My daughters and I needed an inn near Philadelphia colleges and the Alexander Inn met all our needs. The room was nicely furnished and very clean and the view was wonderful! The staff could not have been more helpful. We had questions about transportation, restaurants, etc. The manager let us leave our luggage after we had checked out, which was... More

We stayed for 2 nights in mid July as part of a 4 state trip. The hotel was about 20 minutes walk from Jefferson train station. The hotel itself was very modern looking and we checked in with ease. We were pleased to discover our stay also included complimentary breakfast, which we weren't expecting from our booking information. The room... More

I was a little hesitant when I first booked this hotel. Although it is a boutique hotel in a renovated building in the Center City, I was unsure how nice it would be. I was pleasantly surprised! It is not large but every aspect of it was exactly how I wanted it to be. The lobby was well furnished with... More

Very happy with my choice for one night Hotel stay. Better priced than other hotels yet I don't feel it was a compromise. Room was good size, bathroom clean & functional (great shower). Complimentary breakfast was very good (hot & cold food choices). Staff friendly & helpful. Location very central & easily walking to/from the Amtrack Station & downtown. Nice... More

Great find, perfect location, friendly staff... Humble but clean accommodations. Located within walking distance to everything. Almost scared to let word out its hard to get reservations. Almost forgot that the snacks and fruit during the day is a great touch! Enjoy Your Stay.
