Great location & staff, questionable cleanliness
Alexander Inn is in a great location and has very friendly and polite staff. However, our linens looked as they were not changed after the last visitors. One of the pillow cases had a saliva spot.

Shout out to the late-night desk guy!
Every time we are in Philly, we stay at the Alexander. It may be small but it's very clean and the neighborhood is great. The staff is super-nice but I want to say that the late-night guy is THE BEST. It's been 2 visits now and he always gets me hot water for my tea (there aren't coffee makers in the room--but no big because this guy is so accommodating). They also now sell snacks and beverages behind the front desk, which is great if you need a snicky snack or a bevvy after the bars close. I don't know if I ever got his name--but dude is great! Of note: I was on the 4th floor and the street traffic was much noisier than I remember during past stays, but it was marathon weekend and the last time I believe I was on the top floor.

I'll stay here again!
Perfect place to stay in Center City, Philadelphia! Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Friendly and helpful staff! My room was street facing so at night there was a bit of traffic noise. Continental breakfast included and the coffee was excellent!
