hotels that seem to have given thought to youe every need. Its located in downtown Philadelphia just off the entertainment and shopping areas. Its only minutes away from the Avenue of the Arts Pennsylvania Convention Center S Antique Row and the Historic Independence Hall area. A warm and friendly hotel where good taste and artwork abounds. Its rooms are designed to reflect the great ships of the 30s in the fabrics furnishing and decor. The amenities one expects are all there from large fluffy towels to hari dryers. Their television offerings are several complimentary movie channels plus sports and many other favorites. In addition there is a fitness center a complimentary guest e-mail computer center. A large breakfast buffet that is complimentary includes fresh beaked goods as well as yogurt cereals and more. With discounted nearby indoor parking very reasonable rates and a staff of friendly employees its become the favorite of many travellers.

Nice, friendly, well located hotel in Philadelphia that is an outstanding value.

The Alexander Inn is a small, not at all fancy, hotel in the heart of the city. The continental breakfast is far better than most, with a nice variety of breads, bagels, fresh fruit, pastries, good coffee, etc. Room was small, but very clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Good wireless access. The hotel is an easy walk to lots of restaurants as well as the historic sites. I'd recommend it anyway, but for the price it really is a great deal.

Sweet and simple

Location is great. Rooms are small but clean. Perfect for anyone who doesn't spend the entirety of their stay indoors but just needs a comfortable place for the night. Hot water, clean sheets. Discounted parking a bonus!!!

2 day getaway

We were to be in town for about a day and a half. The reviews I read on this hotel seemed to fit us perfectly without being super expensive. The location allowed us to walk to everything we wanted to see ( much to my husband's dismay). The staff was very helpful in their suggestions for dining and the best ways to reach our destinations.

Well-done

The location, the cleanliness, and the price can't be beat. If you are looking for a luxurious room, this is not the place for you. Personally,I just wanted a place near downtown to lay my head as I experienced the city. The bed was comfortable and the staff was very friendly and willing to help a Philadelphian neophyte like myself. Overall, great place!

Great value.

The Alexander Inn is a quaint hotel in Center City Philadelphia. Small rooms, not much in terms of amenities - but, perfectly situated within walking distance of most attractions like City Hall, Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, theaters, shopping, great restaurants, etc. Very clean and a nice continental breakfast. Would stay again.

4th in Philly

Great stay! A bit smaller than I'd expected but since I was at a conference all day, it worked out great. My room was within 6 blocks of the Convention Center, close to transportation, and inexpensive, good food. The complimentary breakfast offered was similar everyday but good; the covered parking nearby was less expensive than anywhere else around - no in and our privileges, however. Walking destination to several sites (if you like walking and have supportive shoes). Very friendly, helpful staff.

The Alexander

We really liked the location, staff and common areas of this hotel. The rooms were small, but functional. The main issue was the air conditioning in the rooms. Units were small, very noisy and not very effective. I think we would stay here again, although probably not during the hot summer. Overall, we thought it was a good value for the price.

Very Nice Hotel

Overall, it was a very nice hotel. The only negatives were the small size of the hotel room, which I think is to be expected for this boutique type hotel, and the parking was a couple blocks away. Everything else was great. It was walking distance to a lot of great sites. The streets seemed safe, and there was a lot of activity in the surrounding area, both day and night. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. We were very happy with the overall experience, and would stay there again in the future.
