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.

Excellent location

This hotel is in an older building and the rooms are small compared to the newer chain hotels. However they are clean and have all the needed services, with an included continental breakfast. The location is very convenient to the major sights in Philadelphia. The #23 bus stops southbound right at the hotel and northbound 1 block away, while Broad Street is only two blocks away and Market Street five blocks away.

Convention Center Event

Enjoyable stay at convenient location. Nice breakfast, helpful staff, quaint rooms. Few small shortcomings such as no coffee at night either in lobby or room; limited sports on TV because of system in use. I definitely would stay there again if I return to Philadelphia.

Downtown Philadelphia

Nice small hotel. Class act. It was the second-lowest priced hotel within .7 miles of the convention center. Comes with breakfast, gym and internet access. The guy behind the registration desk was very helpful and referred us to a great French restaurant, the Zinc (I have no idea why it's called that) on 11th Street north of Spuce Street.

Quick Trip to Philly

1st time at this hotel. Rooms were clean. We were up on 6th floor with Bay windows, nice size room, quite comfortable. Small bathroom with no counter area but it was clean and served its purpose. Was a little disappointed on the wireless service but staff had warned us they were working on it and it might be spotty. Great location, nice staff and felt a bit safer in this area. Many places to eat within a short walk from hotel. Would recommend staying here when in Philly and the price is right compared to other hotels in the area.

A very pleasant stay

A nice clean quaint hotel with lots of character and a superb staff. The continental breakfast included more than the usual so I was pleasantly surprised. I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Great location. Wonderful staff.

Location is perfect for walking to all the historic sights of Philadelphia. John and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and we appreciated having the snacks (fruit and pastries) available at all hours. Beautifully restored historic building in quiet residential neighbourhood. Overall a great value.

Great value!

Went to Philly for a conference, got a great value for the money! Friendly staff, great value, great location. The amenities are pretty good-there's a small gym downstairs, continental breakfast is ok but there's no sort of protein source other than boiled eggs. Overall very satisfied with my stay. This hotel is right in the gayborhood-a definite nightlife plus. Highly recommend it!

Easy smooth stay

My husband and I needed to be in Phili for 1 day. after careful search through reviews i made my choice to stay at Alexander Inn. our AAA membership finally worked out. The only concern is parking. Hotel doesnt have its own spot, however its partnered with parking garage 3 blocks away. no problem, but it was pouring rain when we got to the hotel and we soaked completely while running those 3 blocks. but room was cozy and comfortable. we are not needy people, so this place was good enough. i would definitely get there again if i ever come back to Phili.
