We spent 2 nights this week and were delighted with the convenience and value for money in a downtown city location. Our room 502 was well furnished and comfortable. though a little dark. The bathroom was large and had a full window facing East.
The area is full of great coffee shops and retsurants. We had super lunch at Little Nonna's next door and dinner at kanellas
I am planning to return in 2 weeks( new destination because my grand twins have just moved to gayberhood, Philly.

Room Tip: High floor rooms are quiet.

My family of four traveled to Philly to experience its Brotherly Love, and decided to stay at The Independent because of its affordable price. Already I'm feeling the love. At check-in, we were greeted with warm service, hot coffee and a chic decor. After spending the day cavorting the city, (which, by the way, use its Phlash bus system if you get the chance) we returned to find a few pleasant surprises: L'Occitane toiletries (an absolute favorite!) and a breakfast request card for hand-delivered delectables the following morning. Free, of course. Now I'm really feeling the love!
Our double queen room was spacious, decorated nicely, and boasted a Keurig, soft bed linens and a perfect variation of pillows.

The Independent's location is also perfect. In the heart of Philly's "Gayborhood," it's surrounded by exquisite shops, bakeries, restaurants and pubs. Book this boutique hotel!

Dear Ann B,

Thank you for choosing The Independent on your recent visit and for commenting on your recent stay.

I am delighted that you found our hotel to be a 'favorite' for you in all aspects! We recently upgraded our toiletries to L'Occitane and have found that guests enjoy these products very much. I am also glad that you had the chance to ride the Philly Phlash, which takes guests to all the must-see tourist sights Philadelphia has to offer. You will be happy to know that we now sell Phlash day passes at our front desk, so the next time you visit be sure to pick one up for an even more convenient sight-seeing vacation!

Sincerely,
Dan Vetrano

This was our first time in New York. Just happened to find Hotel 373 while searching for a hotel. Chose this one because we didn't have to share a bathroom. Exceptionally clean rooms, beds, bathrooms.

I was in Philadelphia on a business trip and had the pleasure of staying at the Independent. Very cute boutique hotel conveniently located to so many great restaurants. I was able to get around the city very easily for business and took advantage of the free wifi. Best part, during the heat wave this week the A/C was blasting! I highly recommend this hotel.
