Fodor's Review

The Independent is among a handful of newer boutique alternatives to Philadelphia's big convention hotels. This property features 24 well-appointed, hip rooms that are all uniquely furnished, but share a warm butterscotch and ochre palette with funky accents, such as leopard-print rugs, exposed brick walls, and copper-tiled ceilings. The hotel's corridors ring a skylighted four-story atrium adorned with a local artist's work. Complimentary wine and cheese is served every

evening in the cozy lobby, and a continental breakfast is served there Monday through Thursday. With an unaffiliated nightclub downstairs, some complain of noise, particularly in the second-floor rooms. The hotel prefers guests to be 21 or older.
