Alexander Inn Review

The well maintained rooms at this small hotel have an Art Deco feel. The property is close to the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the Avenue of the Arts, and most downtown attractions. Though straight-friendly, it has a largely gay clientele, and is near some of the city's gay bars. Some rooms facing northwest have good views of the bustling 12th and Spruce Street intersection. The hotel has a $14 parking arrangement with a nearby lot—a steal in this neighborhood. Management prides themselves on not raising rates during busy conventions. For the lone budget traveler, the Alexander offers rooms with twin beds for $119 a night.

    Great Location

    We stay at the Alexander Inn every time we visit Philly, which is a couple times a year. The location is great and within walking distance to everything you would want to do in Center City. The staff is friendly, and the continental breakfast setup is one of the best I've seen in a long while.

    Perfect!

    The Alexander Inn is an amazing hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable (and soundproof!), the staff is friendly and accommodating, and the location is wonderful. Philadelphia is a great "wallking city", especially when your base of operations is conveniently located, as is the Alexander Inn. The breakfast buffet was just the right way to start our day. Excellent coffee! We would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful hotel.

    Amazing Value at this Elegant Little Hotel

    When we booked, we were pleasantly surprised to find such reasonable rates at a quality hotel in central Philadelphia. When we arrived and saw just how charming the building and decor are--and how convenient the location is and how pleasant the immediate neighborhood is--we realized just what a find this place is! Oh, and despite the old-fashioned charm of the building, the hotel is modernized to the point of in-room wireless access.
