The Independent Hotel is a very comfortable, welcoming boutique hotel centrally located within walking distance of many great restaurants and other Philly sights. I've stayed at the hotel on three separate occasions, twice when traveling alone and felt very safe and secure. The

Great location for walking the city. Room and bathroom spacious. Nice bedding and fluffy soft towels. Breakfast is a little strange, you choose from a menu the night before and it is delivered the next morning. Bread and pastries were a little stale and fruit overripe. In-room

This hotel is well placed for visiting most sights in Philadelphia - be prepared to walk. Shame that there are large renovations going on all around the front of the hotel which rather spoilt the entrance, which is by lift to the second floor. Staff were helful and friendly al

My boyfriend and I stayed there just a few weeks ago and I must say I really liked it! The staff was really great, shot out to Joyce who was super helpful, and the rooms were adorable! The hotel is in the center of everything we wanted but had a intimate vibe. We decided to stay

We are looking at this Hotel for June 29 to July 1st (Wed to Sat). Looks Great but we are concerned about the street noise level.
I stayed there overnight in May and had no problem at all with noise from the street. It did not appear to be a busy street. I think there is a pub-style restaurant at the corner of the building but there wasn't noise from that, either. I slept perfectly well. No doubt the hotel has air-conditioning----in May, I didn't need to find out about that----and if so, you can keep the windows shut to avoid hearing anything that might make noise in the street.

I'm claustrophobic and can't handle elevators. Are the lobby and rooms able to be reached by stairs? Or is an elevator ride required?
Our Lobby is Located on the second floor and unfortunately the elevator is the only access to get to the lobby area. You can use the side steps, it's for exit only, However to come in you will have to call the desk first and we will make sure to open it for you.

How far from your hotel is the city tour bus? Also, we will be coming from DC by train, is it difficult to get to the hotel from train station? CF
The city tour bus is located on market street and we are about 2 and half blocks away. The hotel is about 7 minutes away from 30th street station.
