  • 6.0.Good

    The website did not indicate that guests had to park 4 blocks away in a parking garage, and the hotel did not make if free, only providing a discount. In addition the breakfast choices were minimal. For the expense of over $300 per night, it was not worth it and I would not stay here again.

    Quick overnight stay

    It was a short stay but it was really nice. The outside noise was a little loud but understandable given the location. The location was great and close to so many things. We enjoyed our stay

    Lucky to have found this place

    We stayed at the Alexander Inn for two nights while on a college tour. The location was amazing, right in the heart of old town, with beautiful cobblestone streets all around us. The hotel was very clean and the service was great. The front desk staff was super friendly and even got us dinner reservations on a Friday night at a place that was almost impossible to get into. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The breakfast is a great bonus. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and we are already looking forward to our next stay.

    Comfortable, good value

    Had a nice 3 night stay (solo) in a deluxe queen room (room is smaller than it looks in photos). Bed was firm and very comfortable, pillows were good too! Bathroom is basic but does have a shelf area above toilet to leave your makeup bag, etc. Nice soft, thick towels. No magnifying mirror; bathroom lighting is barely "ok" to put on makeup. Carpeting in room and public spaces is worn, occasional stains, looks dusty along most baseboards--other than that, things seemed very clean. Hotel has an old fashioned, comforting, sort of retro feel. Staff was friendly and polite. Neighborhood & hotel felt safe, There's convenient temporary pkg in front to unload your bags. Parking garage (few blocks away) was $32/day when using the hotel discount - significantly cheaper than the $50/day I've paid here at Mariott, Westin, etc. Breakfast is cold/continental but a bonus: orange juice, coffee, oranges or bananas, bagels and large, soft plain croissants (latter were very good!). Would've loved to have a coffeemaker or hot pot in my room. I will stay here again when looking to save a little money compared to the large chain hotels.

    Overall I had a nice stay. The room Was clean and comfortable . Chris at the front desk was excellent extremely attentive. The Continental breakfast had a lot to be desired, bagel or crescent roll that was it.

    Disappointing

    We stayed here several years ago and had a much better experience. This time was very disappointing. We knew the room would be small. But the bathroom was awful. Shelf missing. Shower leaked all over the floor. The grout was stained and the bathroom felt moldy. We elected not to have the housekeeping, but requested fresh towels because we had to use several to mop the floor. They never arrived. Breakfast was disappointing. Mediocre bagels. And croissants. But served with butter or cream cheese. Neither goes on croissants. No jam, which is a natural with croissants. Coffee was good!

    Great located boutique hotel.

    Great boutique hotel. A bit noisy in the room I stayed in facing Spruce Street, I believe. But turning the air conditioner on solved that issue. Would definitely stay there again. Close to everything you would want to be near.

    I gave two nights at the Alexander Inn as a wedding gift to friends—they absolutely loved it—location, friendliness, service, ambience, and a sense of being somewhere between a B & B and a small European hotel.
