Fantastic 5 night stay. Very comfortable room with plenty of space. Breakfast is continental but plenty to eat. Great neighbourhood. Plenty of eateries close by. Walking distance to main street.Save money and legs by using the Phlash buses to get around the main tourist spots. $5 day ticket. You can hop on and off whenever.

Good over nighter for us
We only stayed one night but check-in was a breeze - they were very accommodating & gave instructions on where to go etc. let me leave our bags in reception while we hurriedly returned a hire car and I overheard them arranging for a room early for another guest. Free breakfast which was one of the better breakfasts we’ve had on the trip (we are Australia eating American breakfasts). Room was comfortable. We were told the air con wasn’t working but they were getting it fixed and we could open our window. It wasn’t a drama and seemed as though it was not a usual occurrence. We ate at a lovely Thai place not far from the hotel. Was within walking distance to the Liberty Bell however it was raining (& we had luggage) so we got an uber for under USD$10

Very good 8.0
I've stayed here before on several occasions over the last 10-15 years. It's convenient to the PATCO train to New Jersey-- and to restaurants and nightclubs. Only problem I had was the phone in my room did not work for outside calls coming in-- I guess that would not matter to most people who use cell phones all the time. The internet worked well.

A hidden gem
The Alexander Inn is a nice hotel. The staff was very friendly and courteous! The rate for parking was fantastic! We are sorry we didn't know about this hotel sooner as it is a block up the street from our daughter's apartment. We will definitely be staying here again.

cozy, quiet and close to Avenue of the Arts.
The Alexander Inn was very nice. Set in an early 20th century building, it was elegant but approachable. The architecture was beautiful and the moldings spectacular. The only draw back for us was the bed was hard and being older, it was not a comfortable rest.
