This is the second time we stayed at the Alexander Inn and it was as good as the first time! We really enjoy the friendly staff, location, pleasant surroundings and rooms, and breakfast. I totally agree with the accolades other reviewers give to the Inn.

Stayed here with friends on visit to Philadelphia flower show. Although a bit dated, very comfortable, clean and convenient and reasonable boutique hotel. Basic Breakfast included and adequate. Convenient neighborhood. I’d recommend and stay again.
