The Alexander Inn is within a somewhat longish walk to the Independence Hall area of Philadelphia. Parking is off-site - about 5 blocks (walking) but because of the one-way streets, longer driving. Our room was small, but comfortable. The neighborhood has some good restaurants, but there are some seedy bits as well. We don't like to sleep with the air...

We stayed at the Alexander Inn in July and were very happy there. It's location is excellent, being within reasonable walking distance of most of the historical sites, and not that far from all of the great Philadelphia museums. The nieghborhood has a good feeling, with many great restaurant choices within several blocks. The staff was very friendly and always...

Very nice hotel, helpful staff, nice atmosphere. Clean and comfortable rooms, tasty breakfast and if you are hungry during the day the snacks are available for free. Free wifi. Not far from top sights - 15minute walk to the Independence Hall.

We just spent a few nights at the Alexander Inn in the Wahington Square part of Philadelphia. We found it to be a charming, reasonably priced base for ouring Philadelphia. If you are driving you pull up across the street in spots designated for 20 minutes of loading or unloading. You then check in (don't feel rushed, check in is...

I can definitely see why the Alexander Inn is highly rated on Trip Advisor. It's priced at a reasonable rate considering its central location. The hotel is close to local coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. It's in a lively neighborhood that manages to not feel too tourist-y. They offer a continental breakfast but because of their close proximity to the...

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,...
