We stayed here for 1 night at the end of June. Our room was small but lovely with ensuite; it catered for our needs as it was clean, comfortable and had ac.
The location is great for nearby shops, restaurants and tourist sights. It is also handy for the tour bus which stops around 5 minutes walk away.
Breaksfast was continental; simple but fine for setting us off for the day.
The owners were helpful on request. They have really worked hard to make this a unique, boutique hotel.

Room Tip: Watch out for taxi drivers - make sure they have their meter running at the start of your journey or...

I was nervous about this place given the unbelievable price, but trusted the other reviewers. They had it spot on. The location was excellent, within walking distance of plenty of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, the independence mall and city hall. My wife and I easily unloaded our bags in the loading zone across from the entrance. Check in staff was quick and friendly. The decor was clean and trendy. The room was quite small, but we had enough room for our bags and space to be comfortable.

The hotel offers parking for $15 per 24 hours 3 blocks north in a garage. We were able to check- out and walk our bags to the garage. This allowed us to do the independence mall tours, hit reading terminal, then leave town without moving the car again. Overall it was just what we needed for our evening/morning stay in Philadelphia.

What a great find, a lovely find in Philadelphia in a great area close to everything. The rooms are a little small and the beds are not a full double size but this is an older building with a great atmosphere - it really is a home away from home. And it is spotless the cleaning staff do make a huge effort.

The reception staff are great nothing is an issue and can recommend lots to do and see, the breakfast was great and the little free treats through the day are welcome.

Its in the gay area too and very welcoming to gay couples which is great.

Recommended do go.

Great location for this hotel and a good price for the area. About a 15 minute walk to the Independence Hall Park. Breakfast was good, rooms are quiet. Bathroom a bit on the small side. We only double beds in our room. Would be better if there was in room coffee. Area is trendy with tons of eclectic food places.

We stayed at the Alexander Inn this June. The hotel is beautifully decorated with an array of original artwork. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. However, one of the best elements of this hotel is the staff. They are more than willing to help you with anything you need. They definately made our stay enjoyable. This hotel is definately a must and I will be staying here whenever I come to Philadelphia!

Our experience was so wonderful. We needed a place to stay (on 2 separate occasions) as one person in our party was undergoing medical procedures at Jefferson Hospital. We were treated so well, and were very comfortable in our rooms. Breakfast was great.

This is the best hotel in Philadelphia. It is in a great trendy area with restaurants on all corners. The room I had at the hotel was a single: a queen bed in a petite room. Worked out perfectly. My only complaint is that I could hear my neighbors in the evening; I wasn't sure if they had their window open, were sitting on the fire escape or the walls are thin. Luckily, they didn't go on for hours. The front desk crew are awesome, helpful, and accommodating. I found out that the property is privately owned and not subject to increases in lease payment, ergo... the reasonable prices. This will be my go-to hotel if I am in Philly again.
