2nd visit to The Independent Hotel
Awesome overnight stay. We came up to Philly for a concert in Camden NJ. Love the location and the cool vibe of the area near the hotel. The hotel is super comfy and friendly. Loved the expose brick in our room. Staff was very helpful. Clean bright and bed was super comfy!

Overall an excellent stay. Friendly staff, comfortable room, easy to find, and excellent location. The breakfast was a little sad, so I wouldn't say that adds anything to the experience.

Everything was amazing. The breakfast could’ve been better, but it was filling at least. :)

Fun with friends in Philly
Excellent hotel for the price. Location is great for many reasons... restaurant, bars, public transport... and Philly is full of cultural attractions from historic neighborhoods to museums. I stayed three nights and enjoyed the service, happy hour and general good vibes. Rooms are all different. Fun character to the building. Doors from other rooms are loud, so you might think about ear plugs:)
