I very much liked this hotel. It's location is great, within walking distance of everything you want to see. It's very clean and the room is a great size for what we needed. My only complaint was that we could hear people in one of the rooms around us (never figured out which one). We heard people the first night,... More

This weekend wasn't our first time to the Alexander Inn. We just haven't had occasion to visit for a while. We were in town to attend an event at the Kimmel Center, and we loved that fact that the theater was only a pleasant two-block walk away. We also liked the discount we received at a well-managed and accessible neighborhood... More

It was our second time in Philadelphia. We spent 3 nights at the Alexander Inn and could not have wished for a netter site to visit all of the historic sites. We had also booked 3 good restaurants all of which were within 5 minutes walk. The hotel is lovely, very friendly , room delightful

I have just returned from a 10 night stay at the Alexander Inn. I choose the place carefully after considering the cost and location of being very centrally located in a big city. Firstly, you really can't beat the cost. I found it very affordable and good value for my money. The location is prime. It is very centrally located,... More

So glad I booked this place (based on other TA reviews). Exactly as advertised boutique hotel with very helpful & friendly staff. All of their recommendations were spot-on - restaurants, tours, etc. Breakfast had good options with fruit & snacks available later in the day. My single room was indeed cozy (small😉) but quite adequate for this solo traveler. Neat... More

I stayed at the Alexander Inn a few years back with my sisters and decided to go back with my husband. Our room was wonderful. The only thing we noticed was the T.V. was way too small! The location is terrific that is within walking distance of historic Philly. There are lots of pubs and restaurants within walking distance also.

First, we'll start off by saying the Alexander Inn is in an excellent location in terms of being very close to tourist sites and activities. The location is also excellent just because of the nice neighborhood in which it is located. A decent continental breakfast is included and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are comfortable and clean.... More

Thank you Frank for writing a review, glad you enjoyed our little hotel. Sorry you were disturbed by your neighbors. This rarely happens but a call down to the front desk to ask the agent to call up to the room next door may have helped. Again thank you for writing and we look forward to seeing you again soon....

We were in town for a performance at the Academy of Music and didn't want to drive the long way home after. We were so happy to have found the Alexander Inn. The inn is located in a turn-of-the century red brick building and is full of lots of architectural details. It is so much more charming than any of... More
