A charming hotel with great staff
My wife and I were very favorably impressed with the Independent Hotel. The building itself has historic charm. The setup is a bit eclectic, with a small entryway to the elevator up to the lobby. The rooms are quite spacious and well appointed. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and enthusiastic. In addition, the hotel is near some very fine restaurants and attractions. We walked everywhere. Our visit was terrific. We look forward to coming again and we will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.
Every single member of the staff was incredibly solicitous, courteous, and helpful. It overlooks one of Philly's legendary Sistine-like murals and is steps from the main Market St in one direction, and the wonderful antiques / jewelry / historic-homes-on-mews district in the other.
One can't open the windows, which is apparently common in many hotels in Philadelphia after an incident with a child falling out, but in New York we have child window guards and I recommend them. It's better for the planet and more pleasant for the customer to have fresh air. What's more, it would save this and other hotels so much money if they didn't have to run the AC all the time! Just sayin'.
Erick is the best!
Erick constantly had a smike on his face our whole experience- He was our bell hop, concierge, breakfast delivery man, and entertainment. He deserves a raise. Our room was beautifully decorated and i felt like i was in my bedroom. Lovely staff and quiet enviornment.
The temperature in our room was a bit bi polar- even with our thermostate on 65 it felt like 75. We had cathedral cielings which i am sure caused this- The vents were still blowing cold air.
The room was fantastic, the hotel staff were lovely and there were nice added extras like a complementary wine and cheese evening.
Very nice room, great location, easy access to & from room, inexpensive nearby parking, breakfast delivered to room, wine & cheese in evenings.
Couple minor things - small shower stall, few things need minor repairs, adjustments - but these did not adversely affect our stay.
Excellent reception staff, who were incredibly helpful when I needed to take a train to an unfamiliar area.
Parts of the room could have been a little cleaner, but nothing that wouldn't make me want to stay there again.
Two things: the manager on duty was way beyond-the-call-of-duty in being helpful with advice about restaurants, etc. The in-room breakfast was good, nice selection.
The walls are pretty thin; I listened to some revelry that went on in the next room until after midnight. I know I could have complained, but didn't want to. The instant oatmeal is probably expendable, so we avoided it after the first morning?
entourage, wine and cheese in the evening
Staff very nice and helpful
The ventilation system was extremely loud. Breakfast included only coffee, bagels and cereals.
Historic city centre, helpful staff, comfortable room and complimentary drinks
Nice room, comfortable bed, wireless included and was easy to set up, business center was handy for last minute printout
A little noisy on one night (room on second floor streetside)
By paying slightly more than we normally pay, we were able to get a much better room in a quality hotel with a great staff. Discounts are very important to us because they are the reason we are able to travel so often. It really made a difference to have a relaxing stay in a nice hotel. We would definitely recommend the Independent because it offered a modern but affordable room.
