Great stay. Television location slightly odd. Beautiful building with tall ceilings. Right in the center of historic Philadelphia. Liberty Bell waffles were a neat surprise. Will consider staying again if in Philly

The room was nice, and it was clean. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and efficient. I would definitely stay here again. The location was near all the places I wanted to visit in Philadelphia.

The Independence Park Best Western Hotel in Philadelphia was a very pleasant surprise. All of the people at the desk were very friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, and the location is excellent. It also included a complete breakfast - with a waffle with the image of the Liberty Bell in the center.

We found ourselves in need of a room for the night at the last minute, and ended up at BW because it had the best rates. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. We loved our room, it was very comfortable. Will definitely stay there next time we are in Philly.

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
