We stayed at the Independent for two nights with our 6 month old - couldn't be happier with it. Great location, great staff, great rooms - we didn't notice the street noise like some other reviews stated. A basic continental breakfast is delivered to your door at the time of your choice. It was nice to be greeted by name upon arrival and each time we passed the desk. Staff was super helpful with every request, from directions to restaurant suggestions, a pack n' play for DD, booking the taxi back to the airport - each little detail was CHEERFULLY taken care of. Our room was really nice, decor was fresh and slightly eclectic, super comfortable and roomy. The only negative I noted was the bathroom lighting -could have been a little brighter. DH pointed out that there are neither security chains nor peepholes in the guest rooms. I didn't feel unsafe at all, especially since the staff seemed to know exactly who belonged in the building and what room they were, in, but I can see some people having an issue with this little detail.
