We wanted a nice hotel close to the historic sites, and the Best Western Independence Park was perfect. We drove into the city so made use of the garage, which for the price was really pretty reasonable for a downtown hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I loved the look and decor of the lobby area. The room was a little small, but it's as one would expect in a historic property. I actually kind of liked the more cozy feel of it. The bathroom was nice, lots of amenities, and the bed was really comfortable. We both slept very well. I loved that there was warm apple cider available in the lobby for guests, and then later towards evening, cookies were set out. Breakfast is available buffet style, but I found the choices to be pretty good compared to other hotel continental breakfasts. I had eggs, bacon, and toast with coffee and was pleased with all of it. Best of all, the location is perfect! The Museum of the American Revolution is across the street, and both the historic downtown area and the riverfront are less than 10 minute walks away. This will definitely be our go-to hotel option for future trips.

Breakfast was a buffet, but much better than the usual chain hotel. Sausage, eggs, Waffles, pastry, fruit, etc. Fresh baked cookies , tea and warm apple cider upon arrival. The bed was way comfortable, and the bathroom had EXTRA TOWELS!!!!!! The staff were very friendly (where did they find these people in Philly?) Would return in a heartbeat.
The price seemed a little high, but I guess that's the going rate in that neighborhood (Liberty Park). And we really did enjoy the neighborhood. Just a block and a half from Independence Park, and maybe 3 blocks from Penn's Landing. Some really excellent restaurants in the area.

Wow, what a great review, thanks for sharing your experience with the world on TripAdvisor. And thanks for staying with us, too!

I am thrilled you enjoyed your "Luxury stay in a great Philly Neighborhood" as well as the "EXTRA TOWELS" provided in your room.

But most of all, I am so pleased that our "very friendly" staff took great care of you, that you enjoyed our complimentary breakfast buffet and the "excellent restaurants in the area".

We appreciate your kind words and look forward to your return visit.

THANKS

My wife and I recently stayed at this boutique hotel while touring downtown Philadelphia. The location is excellent... across from the new Museum of the American Revolution and two/three blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Although an older hotel the rooms are nice and quite depending on the location. The buffet breakfast is very nice (they need a new toaster) and you have your own table and waitress to help you while you enjoy your meal. The staff (especially the front desk) go out of their way to help you with directions, restaurant suggestions and or answer your numerous questions. The location also provides easy walking to many fine restaurants. We certainly would stay here again if we return to the downtown Philadelphia area.

This hotel has many great attributes. It is in Old City Philly, close to many historic sites. The beds are extremely comfortable. The free breakfast offered is complete with a waffle bar. The waffle press has a liberty bell in its center!! During the Wednesday evening wine and cheese social, the events manager speaks with each person as if they are family. This is not only a place to stay the night, it is an experience. I hope you plan to visit soon and enjoy your stay. Overnight parking is also at a reasonable price, for Philly. Only $18.
