The location is great! It is very close to the subway so it's convenient to get anywhere. The rooms were small, but very clean and well maintained. It's within walking distance to many area attractions. The staff was very friendly and informative. I would definitely consider this hotel again if I need to stay in Philadelphia!

We stay at the Independence Park Hotel nearly every time we are in Philadelphia. It is a great hotel in the heart of the historic district. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are nice. We will be back!

The team at IPH seemed to truly care about our experience at the hotel. The location in Olde City is perfect for the historical sites in Philly and the staff made sure we had a great visit. The free breakfast was better than most hotel offerings and the warm cider, coffee and cookies was a pleasant treat.

I have never been to a hotel or motel my entire life (74 years!) where I have had service from top to bottom that far exceeded what you could have from anyone else.

Wonderful location and friendly, helpful staff as others noted, but what impressed me most was the combination of boutique charm and modern amenities. They even have afternoon tea every day! But the doors had modern security locks, the rooms had programmable thermostats, etc. Also the bathrooms were a very generous size. After staying in too many hotels where they are...

I was pleasantly surprised to find this more of a boutique hotel with charming decor and a wonderful staff! I was there on business but look forward to staying there for fun in the near future! And it's in a hot spot in downtown Philly so restaurants and cafes are easily accessible on foot! Perfect!
