We stayed in this hotel first several years ago. Pleasant, with its own style, in the middle of the historic heart of Philadelphia. Very pleasant staff. The hotel seem to have upgraded from what i remember and kept up with adjustments and improvements. Nice standard rooms, convenient location of the garage. Breakfast included is always a plus. Would stay again given an opportunity.
Our first floor room overlooked the main street yet was pleasantly quiet, with instant hot water, and was roomy enough for both of us. Breakfast was superb! soft classical music is played as you dine on a wide variety of dishes that will suit most culinary traditions, and the tables were set with clean linen everyday. A bonus was the complimentary tea and cookies served at 3.30 pm.
My husband and I have stayed at The Independence a couple of times now. As previous people have said it is ideally situated, good hotel and above all the staff are so nice. Never stayed on a Tuesday so can't comment on the wine and cheese evening. The cookies and coffee are much appreciated after a day of walking. So much to see and do around this area. A must is the Museum of American Revolution, right opposite. Quite a few restaurants around. We were so sad to hear about the fire last week. Our thoughts and best wishes go to all the people concerned on that dreadful morning, especially the staff who work at The Independence. Hope everything goes well for The Independence and you will be up and running in a couple of months.
The Independence Park Hotel is a 36 room property on the National Register of Historic Places that sits in possibly the best location for exploring Olde City Philadelphia. Under the Best Western Plus label it offers an expanded continental breakfast in the downstairs atrium and on Wednesday evening, a wine and cheese buffet from 5-7pm, that is outstanding. Parking is around the corner, a short block away for $18 a night with in and out privileges. There are 2 reserved spots in front of the hotel for easy loading and unloading. It sits right across the street from the outstanding new Museum of the American Revolution. The 3 night trip over Valentine's day was outstanding and look forward to returning to this excellent hotel.
This is a reply to Badger 781. We were in the hotel when we had to evacuate at 3:30AM on Sunday, Feb. 18th. If you had seen the 4 alarm fire 2 doors down that took almost 24 hours to put out initially and almost 500 firefighters working you would not be so quick to condemn hotel personnel. They had to coordinate with several city entities and figure out how to help us get our stuff back No hotel personnel were able to be in or near the building, so please cut them some slack about lack of communication. We had 3 different employees helping us and who were in touch as often as they could be, and because we were on the first 3 floors were able to retrieve our belongings Monday afternoon. The basement is completely flooded and the 5th (top) floor basically doesn't exist anymore. This is a wonderful property and we will be back next President's Day.…
