Sophisticated yet down-to-earth, The Independent Hotel reflects the distinct charm of Philly, a diverse metropolitan city with a friendly soul. Our luxury hotel in Philadelphia occupies a fully restored Georgian Revival building in the heart of Midtown Village, just south of Center City. Our 24 spacious guestrooms are uniquely residential—some rooms have fireplaces, others have exposed brick walls, cathedral ceilings, or French walls. Feel at home and at ease with intimate personalized service and simple yet intuitive amenities, such as complimentary breakfast and WiFi and a weekday wine reception from Monday through Thursday from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
Our hotel’s location in central Philadelphia puts us in walking distance to many other neighborhoods and landmarks within the city. We are an ideal hotel for visiting nearby Philadelphia universities and college campuses. We are nearby the Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Reading Terminal, and Academy of Music, and a 10-minute walk to the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Although Midtown Village has plenty of restaurants, shops, and nightlife to keep one busy, there’s also plenty to explore in the nearby neighborhoods of Center City, Old City, Washington Square West, and University City.
The Independent is truly a home away from home. In the mornings, awaken to a complimentary continental breakfast basket delivered to your room. Let us know your preferred delivery time and we will have your chosen breakfast awaiting at your door in the morning. Or if you prefer, take your breakfast by the warm fireplace in the lounge.
We know how important it is to stay fully connected, so The Independent offers complimentary wireless and wired Internet access available in each guestroom, as well as free Wi-Fi in the lobby. If you’re without your computer, we also offer a business center with complimentary print and fax services.
