This is our second stay at the Independent Hotel in Philadelphia, both were great. It is a lovely hotel with huge rooms, close to downtown. And for us, within walking distance to our daughter's townhouse. Also breakfast gets delivered to your room each morning

The rooms were elegant and comfortable. The staff was fantastic. Good coffee machine in the lobby and breakfast was great and delivered on time to our rooms. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend this hotel. Convenient location to convention center and reading terminal market. Less then a mike walk to Franklin

Nice place in a busy neighborhood
The hotel was nice and the room design was very unique and interesting. Our room was right behind the front desk, so we had a lot of noise coming from both lobby traffic and Saturday night activities in the neighborhood. Amenities such as drink machines were non-existent. The staff was exceptionally friendly.

A surprise gem
In an old building, but you'd never know it. It's fresh, clean, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. It was an unknown gem to me, but I'll definitely stay here again. Check it out!!!!

Poor 2.0
Aggressive, rude and dirty
The staff were rude and unhelpful and aggressive (actually stood up and got in my husbands face when he complained that they didn’t have a blanket for the sofa bed in our room for our son to sleep on). No hot water 2 days, no bed linen for spare bed for our son. Huge stain down front of sofa and carpet. It was awful and the staff (one in particular) made us feel uneasy.
