The Independent Hotel recently hosted two Philadelphia lifestyle bloggers, Alex & Mike, for a mini staycation in our refreshed rooms. Read some of the highlights from the couple’s stay below, or visit their website for the full post.
You guys know we love staying in hotels. There’s something about relaxing in a king bed with comfy hotel sheets — it’s the best! If you follow us on Instagram (hopefully you do lol), you know we had a mini staycation last week. Staycations are seriously the best. We love taking some time to experience home from a different perspective. We’re able to be tourists in our own city. If you’ve never done a staycation, add it to your list.
For this mini staycation, we stayed at The Independent Hotel. We had heard of this hotel before but never visited. It’s a small, boutique hotel in Midtown Village. You would never even realize the size of the hotel from the street — something we love.
We started the day by checking in. This gave us a chance to explore the hotel. The lobby was insane. It had these crazy high ceilings with paintings by local artists all over the walls. We love when a hotel really connects with the area.
Our room was so cute and chic. It really had that boutique feel. From the beautiful rug to the velvet chairs, the design was right up our alley. The bathroom had the most amazing wallpaper — something we’re big fans of.
