I stayed 2 nights while attending a convention. I had one of the twin rooms, which was perfect for one. The front desk staff was always pleasant. The continental breakfast was a nice touch.

Was in town for a large conference, but did not want to stay in one of the giant convention center hotels. This is a lovely little hotel with small rooms at great prices. Lobby is a nice meeting spot with fireplace going on a cool evening. Breakfast included in the room rate, perfect to grab a bite and get going...

The staff were excellent, helpful and obliging...the breakfast was not flash but certainly adequate... the wifi worked most of the time - but best of all my room was totally quiet and I was unaware...

Booked this for my son for his post grad interview at UPenn. Location was great and staff was very helpful. He was bummed that he was only in the room for 5 hours and said there was much to see in the area. Room was clean, comfortable and he would stay again.

We were not disappointed! From the moment we booked on line to the moment we departed the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient....

The Alexander Inn was just what we needed for the night. The staff was super helpful and gave great recommendations. The room was a little small but we were not in it except to sleep and shower. The location in the historic area was perfect and everything was within walking distance. Reading Terminal Market was a short walk and worth...

We just visited the Alexander Inn for the third time in two years, and we keep coming back for a reason. Each room we've stayed in has been cozy and comforyable, the location is perfect, and the staff are lovely.

Hotel could do with a makeover but the Staff were so pleasant and helpful and the bedroom was clean. Breakfast was self service but plentiful and tea/coffee and pastries/fruit was on hand during the day for a snack when you came back. Nice restaurants/cafes nearby. 10/15 minute walk to Liberty Bell and Hop on Hop off bus. Bedroom was on...
