Welcome to The Alexander Inn

The Alexander Inn is a popular Boutique Hotel, located in Center City Philadelphia, within sight of many of the best attractions the city has to offer. The building is historic, recently renovated, and now has the charm of the past and all the comforts and safety of our most modern buildings. The building is seven stories tall, with an elevator to all floors. There are 48 nonsmoking designer rooms, all with private baths, large fluffy towels, and wireless Internet access. Artwork, design, style and fresh flowers are everywhere to ensure your comfort and satisfaction. Our reception desk staff are knowledgeable, friendly and ready to help with directions and recommendations during your stay.

"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! "
