The Independent Hotel


A hidden gem in one of the city’s most charming neighborhoods, The Independent Hotel is a stylish boutique Philadelphia hotel located in the heart of Midtown Village near Old City and Center City. Once the site of Ben Franklin’s famous kite experiment, and later a vital business district of the early 19th century, Midtown Village is now a burgeoning cultural epicenter of Philadelphia, an enclave for foodies, intellects, and creative types alike.

The Independent’s central location makes it the perfect starting point for exploring this vibrant and diverse town. Historic and cultural sites like Independence Hall, Christ Church, and Academy of Music are all nearby, and Midtown Village itself is home to dozens of unique shopping boutiques and culinary destinations,including our own on-site restaurants Little Nonna’s and Bud & Marilyn’s.

When the day is over, settle in like a local in one of the most friendly and intimate boutique hotels in Philadelphia—our 24 spacious guestrooms echo the comforts of a refined home, complemented by amenities such as free breakfast and Wi-Fi and gracious service from a staff that knows you by name.

Great Room, location, service and value. Perfect for a boutique getaway.

I was in Philadelphia on a business trip and had the pleasure of staying at the Independent. Very cute boutique hotel conveniently located to so many great restaurants.

Perfect location for such an incredible price. Beautiful room with hard wood floors. Love that your complimentary breakfast is delivered right to your door. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating.
