Going to Philadelphia? Stay for a buck.
In one of the more novel hotel promotions I have seen this year, the Alexander
Inn is offering a "Guest Stimulus Plan" on five of
the hotel's 48 rooms. So far the promotion has provided the Philadelphia
hotel with a lot of media coverage, and many reservations (considering
the standard rate is $129 per night).
Reservations must be made no more than one month in advance, with the $1 promotion scheduled to run till June 11th according to John Cochie, the Innkeeper who came up with the unusual idea.
The historic hotel first opened back in 1900 as upscale apartments before becoming a hotel in 1932. In 1997, the building was gutted and re-built as the boutique Alexander Hotel.
So if your travel plans include a trip to the City of Brotherly Love in Pennsylvania during the next few months, this is a no brainer. Give the Alexander Inn a call at (215)923-3535 and tell them Southpoint.com sent you!
