Description The Independent
- Ideally located in Midtown Village, The Independent is adjacent to Avenue of the Arts, Philadelphia’s vibrant performing arts district. The hotel is also only a few blocks from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and steps away from all that the city has to offer in shopping, nightlife and entertainment. The performing arts, restaurants, and retail within a two-block radius rival those of gateway cities around the world. The Independent’s design reflects a charming sophistication that is consistent with the building’s architecture and the local area of Midtown Village. The hotel’s lobby is accented by a crystal chandelier and features a 30-foot by 8-foot, hand-painted work of art created by local muralist. Oversized guest rooms range in size up to 470 square feet and are divided into ten standard rooms, twelve deluxe rooms, a gracious suite, and a residential duplex suite. Guest rooms feature hardwood floors with New Zealand Wool area rugs, custom window treatments, Robert Allen custom bedding, and one of the finest mattresses available—Serta Congressional. Each room enjoys a variety of unique features such as fireplaces, exposed brick walls, cathedral ceilings, French windows, or loft bedrooms. While each room is wonderfully distinct, all rooms are appointed with a 32’’ flat panel HDTV, microwave oven, and refrigerator. The hotel provides guests with the convenience of complimentary wireless Internet, a business center equipped with two computers, a printer, scanner, and fax machine. Lifestyle, hospitality, and pristine service are paramount in defining The Independent. A complimentary light breakfast will be served daily in the hotel’s fireside lounge. Moreover, The Independent invites guests to enjoy a complimentary happy hour with fine wines and cheeses Monday through Thursday.
