Location and staff were great. Breakfast and internet included in rate but had to sign in several times per day for internet. Bed comfortable but high, so difficult getting in/out. Microwave & ref in room.

My wife and I had a quick 1-night stay in Philly as a part of a week long Mid-Atlantic Coast tour. We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful and our room was small but comfortable. Very close to most of the historic sights and attractions too!

We used to live in Philly and came back for something important, so we know the good and bad hotels and places. This hotel is excellent. Beautiful building, nice rooms, great views, SUPER helpful staff. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Staff were great. Location excellent. It is an historic landmark hotel which is very interesting but means it has small rooms and limited amenities. And that is how it has to remain. So some necessary trade-offs. But they do the best possible.

I stayed at this hotel with my daughter and we loved it. The room was very clean, the staff were welcoming, it was at a walking distance from the historic attractions, and the hotel itself had a historic vibe that completed the experience. The continental breakfast was decent, and it can get noisy if you are in a room on... More

We chose this hotel because of its location. All of the historical sites are within walking distance. Hotel is in good condition for an older property and the staff was great. Breakfast is kind of ho-hum, but will get you started in the morning. There are many restaurants and bars in the area. Cool, youthful neighborhood was great, except for... More

A great location walking distance to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell Center. The hotel is quaint, rooms on the small side and a boutique size lobby. The staff were excellent and very accommodating. There is currently construction going on across the street but it did not interfere with our sleep. The central location and many great restaurants nearby makes... More

We stayed at the Independence Park Hotel during a mini vacation as a married couple in our 30's and loved it. The hotel is clean, quaint and very well kept for an older building. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Many restaurants, coffee houses, shops, and attractions are within walking distance. We will definitely stay here the next time... More
