We are just pulling out of the city of brotherly love and thrilled with our 3 day visit. We are an active family with 3 sons and we like getting out and about. We also like comfortable, hip lodging when we travel. The Independent Hotel is in the middle of a bustling neighborhood of fantastic restaurants, eclectic shopping, interesting sights and historic buildings. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. The rooms seem twice as big because of the high ceilings. The Independent was a great find and I plan to bring my Utah girlfriends back for a city trip. Because of the value, we were able to book two rooms, one for us and one for our boys rather than nearly the same price for one room in a full service hotel. The extra bonus of the Independent is the staff. Julie, Eric and Colin were over the top accommodating through the entire process of reservation, our visit and final check-out. The Independent Hotel was a surprising find and added to an excellent first visit to Philly!
P.S. There is a great nail salon just around the corner if you need a quick, A+ pedicure. "Bellevue Nails"
