The Independent Hotel, Philadelphia
This hotel is in a wonderful neighborhood of Philadelphia filled with great restaurants and bars. Our room was very trendy and clean. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Ok stay
Lack of communication around parking, they initially told us to park in a specific lot and they would give us a parking pass to validate our car. Later that day, we're told that we "aren't supposed to take our car out of the lot until we complete our stay" and that they charge us $25 per night. Very confusing, and I was disappointed they were not upfront about the cost prior to parking to give us a chance to consider our options. In addition, our room was not great: toilet barely flushed, stain on the sheet, weird loud noise coming from the fridge every 15 minutes, lots of noise outside all night from the clubs down the block, and our AC unit was broken, making sleep very uncomfortable. The second night we complained about the AC, and they kindly gave us a new room to sleep in which was really nice and everything in the room was quiet and working. In the end, the customer service was spotty depending on who we talked to, the first room needed some updates, and they need to be more upfront about the parking cost and access to your car in the lot they are working with.

Nice boutique hotel at a great location. Our room was huge and very clean. Good quality linens and towels - the toiletries by L'occitane are an extra touch! Staff is very friendly. Will definitely recommend and come back!

Relaxing and Amazing!
This hotel is so beautiful and most of the staff is really nice. They have a wine reception most nights in the lobby and they deliver your breakfast to your room. It was in a great location and I had an amazing stay there.
