We were heading to Atlantic city for the Beyonce concert from Pittsburgh and we decided last minute to leave the night before and stay in Philly. We searched for hotels on Kayak and wanted to stay in the LGBT Village area. We almost booked the Roadway Inn because we had stayed there in the past. But I was hoping to find something a little nicer. We stumbled upon The Independent and it looked so much nicer and was only $25 more a night. We booked right before we got on the road. The man that I booked with was very nice and helpful. Turns out he is at the front desk when we checked in 6 hours later. This hotel is a nice small boutique type hotel in a great location. the place is gorgeous and so was our room. Dan helped us get checked-in quickly and gave some suggestions on where to go for drinks and food. Bonus: we were given a form to fill out for the continental breakfast that would be brought to our room at the time we specified in the morning. Nice touch! We will stay here again. Decent rates in a great neighborhood. I highly recommend, especially if you want to be around the LGBT community. It's not in your face, but within a short walk.
