First visit to Philadelphia. Used other reviews to select the Alexander Inn and I was not disappointed. Maybe about 10 blocks to walk to the Independence Hall visitor area. Front desk staff was very helpful. Suggested things to do and provided a map with walking directions. It was very helpful that they kept our bags secure all day after we...

In the heart of Philadelphia, close to anything you might want to see is this hotel. If you are looking for giant rooms in a big name brand hotel the Alexander inn may not be for you , but it is without a doubt a comfortable, clean, well appointed room. Walk to the theater, restaurants, historic sites, business meetings and...

You couldn't ask for a better location in Philadelphia. It is just a short walk to most of the historical stuff in Philadelphia. The neighborhood is very safe in the middle of the gay neighborhood of Philly. The room rates are a great deal especially considering that an expansive continental breakfast is included as is fresh fruit and snacks 24-7....

I decided to stay in Philly overnight on a whim, and picked this place because it was nearby, had an available room, and was reasonably priced, but didn't expect this beautiful boutique hotel. The staff was friendly, and the rooms appeared to be all recently redone. My room was on the small side, and the elevator was a bit slow,...

Later on we checked in at the Hotel and went to our standard Queen room. Having traveled abroad, I found the room good sized...

I stayed at the Alexander Inn from July 6-July 9 with my teenage son whom I was dropping off at a summer program. We had a comfortable stay during a heat wave. Though the room only had a window air conditioning unit, we kept the room at a nice temperature. However, the bathroom was quite warm as it faced the...

I stayed at Alexander Inn with my two daughters and could not have been more pleased. First off, a few people have written about the service - we arrived late and had a wonderful and helpful and friendly check in. I asked many questions throughout my 2 day visit and always the gentlemen at the front desk were so helpful....

First, this is not a 5-star hotel. It is a very nice, basic, boutique-style place. It does, though, rate five stars for what it is. Great center city location, about six blocks from the Convention Center. A basic continental breakfast is included. Friendly staff during the day . . . not quite as good at midnight when I arrived, but...

I truly enjoyed my stay here. The staff is so helpful and polite. The only thing I didn't like was the small rooms. But for the price, it is reasonable. Everything is bigger in Texas. Anyway I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. It is also very close to lots of shopping streets.
