Hotel room was a good size. Large bathroom. It's a historic property, with a revolutionary period ambiance. Breakfast included had a great selection of eggs, sausage, breads, cereals, muffins, juices and coffee. Location in old city is only a block down from Market street, and close enough to Penns Landing. Staff very friendly.

Staff was professional, cordial and pleasant and accommodations were above standard. The location of the hotel was convenient with restaurants and bars within walking distance. Complimentary breakfast buffet was fresh and complete with a wide variety of options.

The Independence Park Hotel is in a perfect location for the main sights of Philadelphia. We parked the car in the garage around the corner and didn't see it for three days. Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, of course, but also Carpenters' Hall, Franklin Court, the Jewish American Museum, and Christ Church are within three short blocks. There are... More

While the hotel was old, it was updated, very charming & I thoroughly enjoy staying there. Free internet, free breakfast & free smiles from the staff made it very pleasant to stay there. There is no restaurant or bar, but there are plenty all around within a short walk.

I chose this hotel because I wanted to be near the historical action in Independence Park and the rates were affordable and the breakfast was attractive plus a savings. What I discovered was a great hotel working hard to be a 6-star customer service hotel. Lovely rooms, even nicer lobby and guest area, wonderful breakfast and then there is the... More

Me and my boyfriend came to Philly so go to the Monday night Eagles game. The location of the hotel from the stadium is great. It is kind of hard to locate them so make sure you drive slow when trying to locate them. I did receive a complimentary upgrade which was nice, and the room was big and spacious,... More

We stayed Two nights and we loved the location and the small hotel feel of the Independence Park. The lobby was beautiful The staff was able to get us into our room early. We were not on the front so the construction across the street did not bother us at all. Just ask not to be on the front if... More

Each of the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The Parking garage was easy to find and close by. They gave us a late checkout with no fuss. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I'd stay here again.

Thanks to warnings on Trip Advisor I asked for a room to the rear to avoid the noise from works opposite. After a long and very wet and windy motor-bike ride to get here , the hotel felt like paradise! A hot shower in a decent room followed by free afternoon tea and we knew it was Paradise! We spent...

The location is very nice, the hotel itself is wonderful, but right now they have major construction right across the street. And even someplace seemingly inside the hotel was being worked on all night long as well as during the day. They are trying-they put a white noise machine in the room, but seriously, that you know you need one... More
