"I spent one night at this little treasure of a hotel with my two teen daughters. The weather was frigid but the moment we walked through the doors of the Alexander Inn we were warmed and welcomed. It was the perfect location for my daughter's audition for UArts and close enough to the historic sights that we could walk, even in 20 degree weather. The complimentary breakfast was more than we anticipated and we all left for our early day feeling rested and satisfied. After a couple of hours of sightseeing we came back to the room for a rest (and a hot bath for me) before checkout. We had some time to kill waiting for my daughter to finish at her audition and the manager allowed us to stay in the adorable dining room where we were warm and cozy. I hope my daughter goes to school in Philly just so I have an excuse to stay here again and again! "

"My family and I stayed at the Inn last weekend. Just wanted to drop a line to express our thought about out stay: it was perfect. The location is amazing. Walking distance from everything (and we came with very small children and no stroller!). The rooms are clean, welcoming, just the right size, the new bathrooms are perfect, the breakfast and all day snacks exceeded out expectations and above all - the service with a smile made it all worth while. We've already recommended you to our friends and hope you could make use of this note on your website. It is well earned!! Thank you for a wonderful weekend, "

"John the manager was amazing. He was so helpful and really helped make our stay the night before our wedding a great one. He and his staff were incredibly courteous to our friends and family. We truly had a great stay and are so thankful to them. I encourage anyone visiting the city to stay here! "

"We stay at the Alexander whenever we visit the city. We are always made to feel welcome in the hotel. The continental breakfast is great! The rooms are clean and well-kept and the nightly rate is terrific. The Alexander is so much more relaxing and enjoyable than the large chain hotels. We've never been disappointed. "

"This is the third time my wife and I have stayed at the Inn. We enjoy this unique property, the staff and the location. On this visit the owner went out of his way to take me to a store and bring me back. While our room was small, the price was reasonable, it was well air conditioned and quite comfortable. We have had a postive experience each time we have stayed and will be back when in Philadelphia. This place is a jewel!"

"My stay at Alexander Inn was excellent; the staff was gracious and hospitable in every way. The Inn is impeccable, the breakfast far exceeded my expectations, and the location was perfect. I cannot possibly extol the charm and cleanliness, the professional and welcoming staff and the appearance of the property adequately. I whole-heartedly would recommend the Alexander Inn as "the" place to stay in Philadelphia if you are not looking for cookie-cutter chain lodging. For sure, I will be back! "

"My husband and first stayed at your hotel before we were married in 2007. We will never stay anywhere else in Philadelphia. The rooms are clean and beautiful without being fussy. The staff is beyond pleasant and helpful. My husband and I really feel like this is our place in Philly and I recommend The Alexander to all our friends. It's a beautiful hotel in a great location and run by a great staff. What's not to love? "

"Oh My Word ----As always it was the most phenominal get away vaca for a long weekend in a major city!!!!!! John and his folks are the most welcoming people ready to assist with any question asked of them. They are full of info and always available any hour of the day. AND, the man who coordinates the breakfast routine is another God send with his kinetic energy from start to finish ensuring the variety of selections is there when the guests are ready to have their morning libation. I am always so impressed with the genuine response from all those working and staying at the the Alexander xoxoxoxooxoxoxxoxoxxoxo David "

"Dear Alexander Inn, From one Alexander to another, I'm glad to see you're living up to the great-ness of our name. Like me, you are plush and comfortable, stylish, sleek and well designed, clean and beautiful with an eye for adventure. Thanks for making us feel like welcome guests in our own home town. You'll always be first in our hearts, and second to none. See you in six months and six more on our Inn-iversary! Best regards."

"The Alexander Inn was recommended to us by friends so we decided to try it during our visit to the city. We absolutely loved it! From the more than accomodating staff to the fabulous location, to the beautiful room and building, everything about it was perfect. The great room is the best place to start your morning with breakfast. The location was also perfect. We walked everywhere we went and the Inn was the best place to return to at the end of our day. We will definitely recommend your Inn to everyone we know coming to Philadelphia. Thank you so very much! "

"To Manager & Staff at Alexander Inn: Thank you, thank you, thank you for a WONDERFUL stay at your hotel. Our room (Mary Poppins room) was spacious, very quiet, and everything was exeptionally clean. The hotel staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to address any questions we had regarding the area. My husband and I felt this was the perfect area to stay in, within walking distance to all modes of transportation, and felt very safe. Breakfast was great and just right for a kick start to the morning We definitely look forward to coming back to Philadelphia, and especially to stay at the Alexander Inn. We'll tell all our friends about you and your great staff! Best regards, "

"My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Alexander Inn. We could not have asked for a better location. Close proximity to everything we wanted to see and do. We definitely will stay there again on our next visit."

"Thank you for a wonderful home away from home. Your hotel is so cozy and so much attention is paid to detail, from the lovely breakfasts (real bagels!) to the wonderful bathroom products, to the free internet and gym and the charming decor. Most of all, my family and I really appreciated the fantastic staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and I really can't say enough good things about our great time at your hotel. "

"John Cochie and staff I just want to thank you for a lovely stay at the Alexander Inn. My two daughters and I there on May 8th - May 11th. We drove up from Virginia so my daughter Kathy could attend a seminar at the Cancer Center and while she was there all day for two days, my daughter Cindy and I took advantage of the surrounding area. Cindy and her husband had stayed there about a year ago and that is why she chose the Alexander Inn for our visit in May. You are, without a doubt, wonderful hosts and show a courtesy to your guests that is rarely seen these days in other hotels. While I realize that other hotels are much larger and require a certain immunity to their paying guests, you have certainly given us the incentive to return to the Inn the next time we are in the area. Because of your hospitality, the lovely decor of the rooms and the comfort they afford, we will surely make an effort to visit Philly again in the near future. Thanks again, John and please give the other staff members, our thanks for a really great stay. Oh, we were also pleased with the lady who took care of our room and while I am sorry to say I have forgotten her name, she was also part of the delight of the Alexander Inn."

"I enjoyed my stay very much. Nicely appointed and clean room. Very nice and helpfull staff. I would recommend it anytime. For my next stay I plan to return here. "Home away from home" "
  -- Nikka, Baltimore, 11/4/2007

"Just a quick note regarding our recent visit...couldn't have had a nicer stay. Wonderful staff, super location, reasonable prices. Really interesting guests, too. We own a small store of fine crafts and have simple rules: no plastic, no resin, no oriental mass produced. Hence... we really dislike the big boring chain outfits. How refreshing to stay at a friendly, original, unique hotel in a great neighborhood. Bravo!"

"This was our first visit to Philadelphia and to the Alexander Inn. We were both quite impressed with the city and the Alexander Inn. We most definitely will be back and would not consider anywhere else to stay. The Alexander Inn has a great location and a terrific staff. The room was lovely, quiet, comfortable and absolutely perfect in every way. Every staff member we spoke to was friendly and helpful. The Alexander Inn felt like our home away from home."

"I first stayed at the Alexander Inn in May 2006. I enjoyed the hospitality so much that I decided it was the only place in Philly that I wanted to stay for my trip in February 2007. If you are visiting Philadelphia soon and are tired of staying in Hotels that treat you like just another reservation number then my advice is to try the Alexander Inn. You won't be disappointed. "
  -- Gerry . Dublin, Ireland, 4/22/2007

"Everytime I travel into Philly my partner and I stay at the Alexander Inn. The staff is friendly and they remember your personal stories. We crave the fresh bagels and I personally love the location. I feel safe and at home when I stay there. When traveling from England you want to feel the ease and relaxation you get from this hotel. We look forward to seeing you all again in April! "
  -- Amanda Barnett, 3/1/2007

"This was a first time stay at this hotel and I very much enjoyed the facility, the reasonable rates that don't fluctuate from day to day,the friendly staff and all the ammenities offered. I would return, or reccomend this to anyone wishing a center city location, with indoor discounted parking nearby. They have a great breakfast buffet and leave it out till !0:30 on weekdays. Free movie channels, comp e-mail computers and other things I did not get to use, like the fitness center. It was very clean and a felt very safe walking around at night. There were restaurants in every direction and they gave a list of different suggestions for each meal. Try it, you'll like it too! Miami Gal! "

"What a great location! Right in the middle of everything we wanted to see and do. The public rooms are beautiful and our room was laid out very well and had great artwork. The staff is the best and they have a great breakfast buffet."
  -- Julianna Buchner, 1/8/2007

"I LOVED this hotel! The location was perfect, and I could walk to everything of interest."
  -- Jenni Vazquez, 1/7/2007

"The Alexander Inn has the charm of a small guesthouse but the amenities of a large hotel. Great location and reasonably priced. The staff is very knowlegable and friendly. Will definately stay there again. "
  -- Tony Josephs, 1/6/2007

"My husband and I had an incredibly enjoyable and relaxing stay in Philadelphia due in large part to our choice of hotel. Our experience at the Alexander Inn was exceptional and we've already begun recommending your facility to friends and family. Thank you again for your hospitality. "
  -- Erika Naraghi, 11/23/2006

"I just wanted to write and thank you all for making my stay in Philadelphia an incredible one. I have stayed many places around the country, and never before have I been treated so kindly, by such a friendly staff. I very much appreciated your making recommendations of restaurants and then going beyond that to make dinner reservations for my business dinner at Portofino. I felt as though everyone at the Alexander Inn far exceeded my expectations during my stay. Being in the Funeral Industry, everything comes down to appearances…i.e., the body, the building, the automotive equipment, and the staff. You as employees of the Alexander Inn, made a great impression on me in regards to the appearances of the hotel and the staff. "

"Dear Innkeepers: I came with a group of 9 women from Annapolis Maryland to see the Philadelphia Flower Show. We stayed in your lovely inn, and enjoyed the city. We walked to the Flower Show and to all the surrounding attractions. Our stay in your wonderful little Inn was perfect. The brunch was wonderful, the rooms were comfortable. Lucky me, I am coming back into the city this coming weekend, and I get to stay at the Alexander Inn again. Can not wait! "
