The hotel was centrally located to the Historic District and in close proximity to local bars and Night Spots. Easy access to Public Transportation. Hotel staff was accommodating and the complementary hot breakfast was ample.

This hotel is very nice. Warm and comfortable. The staff was very friendly the rooms cute and beds luxurious. The food was great and plenty to go around. Parking price was shocking, however after looking around the price was better then most places. I had a great stay.

great hotel , the staff always went above par to help make my stay a very positive and beneficial one for me. The Hotel is very unique in style and more like a bed and breakfast in a hotel. Since my stay I have recommended the Independence Park Hotel to many in the business community. Thank you Very Very Nice

this was the only B/W without free coffee upon arrival) service not available after 1pm and restaurant doesn't open until 5pm. This was one of the largest (12 stories) of the 10 B/W stayed in during last two weeks; all others served coffee, tea - even cookies in some. Arrival was on a cold and rainy day and a hot... More

This hotel is great! Perfect location to see the sights of Philly. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is clean and well taken care of. They serve tea and cookies each day from 4-6:00 pm and have a very nice breakfast every morning. Our room was quiet and well appointed. Would definitely stay here again.

We were in town for the Hot Chocolate 15k race and the hotel that was offered through the race was booked. We looked at other hotels but decided the location of this would be great for a kid free weekend for my husband and I. It was a bit pricey but very nice hotel and great staff. I had requested...

The staff at the hotel were very helpful and pleasant. We only stayed one night and were not in the room for very long pretty much just sleeping. The parking was pretty convenient but is a block and a half away. All and all a pretty nice hotel and very friendly staff.

Great location for a family trip to the independence hall area. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel staff was very helpful and courteous. Rooms were quite nice for BW. Will stay here again if we plan a similar trip to Philadelphia. Parking is off premises. Not a big inconvenience though.

Less expensive, friendly and helpful staff, though dubious parking facility outside the hotel, but near quality restaurants and historic churches and the Independence Park complex. Coffee and snacks in the lobby, plus local papers. Breakfast was so-so but hot.

The hotel was well located, but the room even smaller than a New York City room. The breakfast was ok. I found the hotel to be pleasant but quite average. There was a concern about groups of young men loitering at and near the entrance to the hotel. A bit intimidating. The breakfast was perfectly acceptable.

Dear AmCanLondon Thanks for staying with us at the Independence Park Hotel and for posting your comments on TripAdvisor. The Independence Park Hotel is Philadelphia's MOST historic hotel and yes, some of our rooms are smaller than today's modern hotels. Additionally, we do have larger rooms as well as rooms with parlor areas, so perhaps one of these would be... More
