              There was a very warm welcome by Jim on arrival . This very highly positive attitude was also exhibited by other front-desk personnel and ancillary staff. The entire staff is people-oriented,friendly ,efficient and helpful, thus contributing to a very memorable experience. The location in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love added to the flavour. I unreservedly recommend this historic, boutique hotel to anyone seeking good accommodation while on business or pleasure.

              We were very pleased with the service from the front desk. They were very helpful and suggested very nice places to eat.

              It would have been nice to have a restaruant.

              1. high speed free internet access. 2. breakfast server in the room, 3. staff very polite, high quality of the hotel overall

              1. location in the gay area and in not very high class part of the city.... that was a bit annoying. 2. noise coming from the street at night

              Enjoyed staff. Julie at sign-in desk was very helpful at the time of our check-in; came up personally to clean up broken glass even though that is not in her job description and was more than pleasant about it.

              Beyond expectations on cleanliness and hotel staff! Winning combination for a strong business and I have not stopped recomending this hotel to my friends and family. Who knew you could get this kind of quality for such a low price!

              This Hotel is very cool with a new desing, a great view of the reception is available on each floor from the Balcony. Parking service is nearby.

              The location is great, right in the heart of Philadelphia. The internet connection speed is excellent. Bed was very comfortable.

              If you are tall, you may not want to stay here. I am over six feet tall and the shower head is maybe five and a half feet high. This means I had to stoop down real low to get my head under the shower head.

              The huge bed and bathroom.

              I was lucky to get a room on the other side of the building than the bar downstairs

              Our room was beautiful. Nice big space, lovely king size bed, very clean. It was also really pretty, with nice furniture and exposed brick feature walls. The hotel also offers free internet access and free breakfast delivered to your room (fruit, drink, cereal, yoghurt). The staff were really friendly and more than happy to help with any request.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Great location, close to bars and restaurants in Philadelphia. Would definitely recommend it for a break in the city of brotherly love!

              The bed was a little bit high... But that's not really a complaint more of an observation.

              A very good place Colin and Julie made us feel like we were part of there family. Wine and Cheese at night was great and fun to meet others staying there. Mattress on bed leave alot to desire for us anyway maybe some like them but felt like the needed to be replaced but we like the temper pedic style matress's and we were there for three nights so was nice to get back to our home beds. The room was guite woke up Monday morning at 8:30 and had not heard a sound from below on the street. A major different from just coming from four days in NYC and all the street noise there around Times Square. Keep in mind this is in the gay side of town if that was to bother you. Easy to walk to all things in the city area.

              The mattress on the bed and that is all everything else was the best.

              The hotel is comfortable and convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful. There are a couple of things that are very important to me when visiting Philadelphia. I want a hotel that is clean and comfortable, and a hotel where parking is easy and safe to use. The independent Hotel gets high marks in all these areas and the friendly, helpful staff is an pleasant and much appreciated bonus!! Thank you to all.

              Two things: the manager on duty was way beyond-the-call-of-duty in being helpful with advice about restaurants, etc. The in-room breakfast was good, nice selection.

              The walls are pretty thin; I listened to some revelry that went on in the next room until after midnight. I know I could have complained, but didn't want to. The instant oatmeal is probably expendable, so we avoided it after the first morning?

              I absolutely loved my stay here. The staff is super friendly and will help with any need. I would definitely stay again! Highly recommended!!

              Lots of street noise but I'll just say that's Philly.
