I stayed here with my wife and son. Beibg an historic building, the archetecture was beautiful. It also meant, though, that the rooms were very small. This also means that, if you want the AC to work as intended, you need to move the chairs and tables out of the way. I don't know what they can do differently, though, as they seem to have done the best with the room available.

The service, on the other hand, was incredible. Anything you needed was at hand. If you needed advice on how to or help getting around the city, the folks at the front desk were extremely helpful.

In closing, I guess whether you stay here depends on what you value most. If smaller spaces don't bother you, then you will be thrilled by the impecable service. With three of us to a room, the close quarters were a bit much for us.

The service,

Thank you for writing and we hope you enjoyed your visit to Philly. Our website clearly states the square footage of our rooms. For $20.00 more a larger room might have suited your needs better. Tony Lombardo

The Alexander Inn has a great team of people to help you when you first get there. They do not have their own parking but there is 20 min parking in front of the hotel for loading and unloading. Good thing the streets are easy to navigate and public transport is good. The lobby is very small. If you have more than 4 people with you, best have them wait in the car for check in, and you may have to do more than one trip in the elevator to get people and luggage up.
Our room was on the 5th floor and you could see the tops of the modern buildings. Inside was not very spacious. The hotel is historic, but with 6 foot tall people staying in the room, there was no room to move around and the beds were too small. The bathroom had no place to put anything and the toilets were horrible. They were supposed to be water saving, but it took 3 or more flushes to get anything down. It doesn't save water, but it sure is annoying.
The breakfast was good. Enough to get you going in the morning. The room it was served in was...... tiny. With such a large inn, there is no way there is room enough to serve everyone if it was a full house.
I would not stay here again, but the wood work and floors were pretty and the staff was helpful. A good location for accessing all the attractions in the city.

Room Tip: Tiny lobby, tiny room, tiny beds, tiny bathroom....

I booked this hotel because of the good reviews. The location is great- walk to most major attractions. The staff is excellent- friendly and helpful.
The room is small but the bed was comfortable. Parking was good- $20. a night at a nearby garage. You park across the street to unload and load luggage. The hotel gives you vouchers for the garage.
Breakfast is typical continental breakfast but was fresh and continually replenished.
Good value for the money.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. The hotel was located in a great area for our trip. The price was very reasonable for the location and the staff was very helpful. When we stayed the neighborhood was quiet and felt safe. We were able to walk to all our destinations in a reasonable time and most major points are a sort car ride away. The rooms are small and the are not the most modern. We knew this going in and expected this of a hotel in a historic building. We had no complaints.

This is a very nice hotel close to many top Philadelphia sites. It's in a lovely neighborhood. It's in a renovated former apartment building, with the rooms in the apartment divided into hotel rooms. Our room was pretty tight. We just spent time out of the room doing things. They have a very nice breakfast buffet, and the people who work there are very helpful.
