I stayed at the Independent this past weekend for a girl's night out. The hotel was located in the center of everything downtown. The staff was friendly and helpful. Ryan was very helpful when I called the hotel before booking. He answered all of my questions and I was able to meet him in person when we stayed there. He was helpful, charming, and informative. When we checked in our room was extremely hot. Ryan came to our room right away to check on it. We thought it was fixed and left to walk over to South Street for some shopping and cheesesteaks. When we came back it was still hot. As soon as I called the front desk Gida (the evening staff member) immediately found us a new room. Had a new room not been available Gida would have sent a technician to the room right away. We know that there can be issues from time to time and it is how staff members deal with those issues that make the difference. The staff was great. The room was a bit dim but not too bad. The light controls have a dimmer switch so you can actually change the brightness if you choose. The size of the rooms were larger than what I expected of a boutique hotel. The beds were extremely comfy and the rooms were very stylish overall. We would defintely stay at the Independent Hotel again.
