We have really enjoyed our four-night stay at Alexander Inn! Great location -- you don't need a car; however, discounted parking for just $15 a day is a 7-minute walk up 12th Street (20 min. loading/unloading zone is across the street from the hotel entrance). You can take your car out of the garage once every 24-hour period, but we didn't bother... visited the Penitentiary before checking in (parked in that area) and took a cab for $10 (incl tip) to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The rest of the time we walked. Everyone at the inn was very friendly and helpful, and we got excellent recommendations from the concierge, including a sheet with a comprehensive list of great restaurants! Buffet breakfast was available till 10:30 in a very pleasant room and featured various drinks, cereals, breads, waffles (toasters were provided), jams, Philadelphia cheese (of course!), peanut butter, etc. Half-grapefruits were a nice touch! Our room was quite small - only one side table, as there was not enough space on the other side... BUT, it was very cosy and nicely decorated. Minor point: we found the pillows to be unusually hard. Overall, it was a great inn, very economical, and we will most definitely return, as we have not yet finished exploring this friendly city!
