We recently stayed at this hotel for 1 night. We chose this hotel mainly because of price and location. However, it will forever remain in my memory because... my boyfriend proposed to me there! The positive points about this property: - Location. Great! If you need to be right in the center of the city, it is perfect. We actually...

I think my title says it all. I stayed at the Alexander Inn for a total of 10 nights and LOVED it. What did I like best? The service from the front desk staff. I am also in the service industry and know that good service comes from the heart. ALL the staff working at the front desk are never...

We stayed at the Alexander Inn for my daughters' law school graduation. The location was perfect since the ceremony was held at the Kimmel Center just two blocks away. There were many places to choose from as far as food all around the area (including Jose Garces Trading Company). The Continental Breakfast was the typical coffee, fruit, cereal and bagels...

We stayed 1 night here as part of a mini tour of the East coast. The hotel has a certain charm to it, with stylish decor and a neat boutique feel. The room was a lot smaller than I was expecting however. A small amount of leg-space around a large double bed was pretty much it, with a small bathroom...

The location was fantastic. A short walk to most things. The rooms were clean but a little small. There was a mix up when we first arrived getting a crib for our daughter. We checked in and went to a room then had to move rooms which was inconvenient. The breakfast was a provided but nothing special...bagels etc. Would stay...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in April and were very impressed with the level of service. When trying to book on line there did not appear to be any rooms available for our required dates so we rang as advised and were able to book over the phone. The room was comfortable and the location is good...

A good value Hotel in a great area of Philadelphia, within easy walking distance of the Historical Area. Friendly staff and cosy rooms, and the included breakfast was most welcome. The only downside was that our room on the 4th floor had really bad WIFI reception, and the Air-Conditioner was old and noisy, and couldn't keep the room cool on...
