We always stay here when in town. It's close to the historic attractions and good restaurants. The staff here works hard to make everything go well. This feels more like a boutique hotel instead of a chain. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Each room is different as this is an historic building.

I very much like this hotel and stay there every time I stay in Philadelphia. The location is excellent,. It is not too big. The staff is very pleasant and extremely helpful. The breakfast is very pleasant and big enough. I am just sorry my schedule seldom allows me to indulge in their afternoon wine, etc. get togethers.

Our group of four females (age 16-60) stayed three nights in late April in this Best Western.
Pros-Excellent location
Beautiful historic building
Superb bed, quiet room
Clean bathroom, thick towels, and large counter
Pleasant and helpful staff
Complimentary breakfast w/"Liberty Bell" waffles!
Relaxing atmosphere in lobby w/afternoon tea & cookies

Con-A little pricey

Each day in Philly was a full experience and to come "home" to such a relaxing and comfortable hotel was a joy. Yes, it was pricey but the memories were priceless!

We stayed at the Best Western in Old City, Philly for a long weekend and had a nice experience. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was adequate and better than what you usually find at most hotels. We enjoyed the tea and cookie afternoon reception. Free wi-fi is great, though it was a pain to log in and out every time. Clean, quiet, comfortable and steps from all the historic things to do in the Philly, this was a good value and a great location.

Great location for a hotel, helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Parking is not on site, however, and requires a walk of about a block and a half, although it is free with your stay. Awesome restaurants within walking distance.

Dear Shirley B,

Thank you for selecting the Best Western Independence Park Hotel for your stay in Philadelphia. We are glad that your visit was so enjoyable and your TripAdvisor review so fantastic. Thanks!

I am pleased to read that our staff was very helpful, that our rooms were clean and comfortable and you found our location "great" and that our nearby parking was convenient for you.

As for how you received "free" parking, I am not sure, since this is not included in our lodging rates. But, lucky you!

Thanks again, please come back soon.

JM
