Pros: The hotel manager was very nice. They provide wine tasting we didn't know. So we took a glace of wine and spent realy nice evening there. Location is good. Walking distance to all important points. Staff is able to help you and recommend places to eat. The hotel is design in specific way. You feel really comfortable there.

Pros: This hotel is a lovely portal to the charm of Philadelphia. Starting with one of the city's gorgeous murals across the street and a vibrant performing arts center down the street, I was able to explore the beauty of Philadelphia on foot returning back to the Independent to recharge in the quiet comfort of my well appointed room

Pros: The rooms were clean and good showers.
Cons: I Booked the room for two but requested a double queen room on your site as we were not sure if our friends were going to be able to fly in. The confirmation said 2 Queen Room. When we arrived we had our group with us and in no way did we try to his that we had more than 2 people and would have been happy to pay a difference if it was required but you decided for us that we should only get a single queen. They would not honor the confirmation that said 2 queen room. They also would not allow us to have a roll bed in the room as "it was against fire code" and would not allow us to switch rooms to the King room that was available. We ended up having to spend over 200$ more in order to accomidate our group and honestly we felt that we as young travellers and college students were taken advantage of. Unless we are credited the 200$ we spent on the second room or get a travel voucher good for a room we will never be ising your site again / will also be leaving negative feedback online as well as with anyone we talk to about your services. Like I said, we are college students and do not have lots of free cash and this put a damper on our entire weekend. In the future, you should book the rooms that ARE REQUESTED. People have reasons for doing the things they do even if it is not clear to you.
