This was our second stay at Best Western Plus Independence Park Hotel and we would not think of staying elsewhere when returning to Philadelphia. The hotel is right in the historic district and itself gives a taste of colonial Philadelphia in terms of the tasteful furnishings, roaring fireplace, etc. Wonderful breakfast with liberty bell waffles. We couldn't be more pleased

We stayed here for the first time and this is one the best Best western property we have stayed. Although, the rooms are small but they are very clean and the staff is awesome!

Our stay here could not have been better. It was a short walk to all of the interesting sites for us to see. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The street was blocked off from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm for construction but that did not deter the staff from making our stay very enjoyable. They came and got... More

The location of the hotel was good, close to all sights so you can walk to them. The breakfast was good, standard free breakfast quality. The hotel was nice but it is not a five star hotel so those people looking for that please do not go. The rooms were good, again not five star but 3+ star. The bed... More

We stayed during Presidents Week just for a getaway -- paid $104 senior rate which was an amazing value. Only 35 rooms, very personal feeling. Right by Penns Landing in the midst of the historic district. Very comfortable room, adequate hot & cold breakfast, tea & cookies out every afternoon, early bird beverages & pastry set out from 5 AM... More

I have to commute to Philadelphia weekly for business and having been staying regularly at the Best Western Plus Independence Park Hotel. The hotel is a small boutique hotel. The hotel staff is warm, welcoming, and super-responsive. From my first stay, they have made me like family, and I can't say enough good about the way they treat their customers.... More

My wife and I were in Philadelphia for 5 days visiting our daughter over President's Day weekend. From the time of the reservation until the moment we said goodbye, the staff at the front desk at any hour of the day was pleasant and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful with a few hot choices each morning and fresh fruit... More

I'd give our stay an Excellent except that the sink drain backed up. But other than this, it's a very nice, clean, comfortable hotel in a great Old City location. Very quiet room and the entire staff was very accommodating. Cookies, hot chocolate and tea every afternoon from 4-6 was a very nice touch, the fireplace and sitting rooms off... More
