    Grandsons wedding- vacation

    Different room rates each day. Tax on each day's stay in stead of full stay's bill.

    Small but clean room. Great bathroom. Nice front desk staff. Located in old Philly-touristy area.

  • Single

    Too much money for such a small room. Thin walls and definitely won't be staying again when thee are sooooo many better values.

    the day time staff, very bad and aggressive

  • Single
    8.8

    Great location, lovely old hotel design (not cookie-cutter, like most hotels), lots of nice touches (tea, beautiful furniture).

    Would be lovely to have a good map of the area given at the desk (not just of the historic sites, but good for walking around anywhere in the area). Also, provide info on how to get to hotel via train and subway from airport; it's easy, fast, and inexpensive.

  • Single
    8.8

    Convenient for my business trip. Courteous and helpful staff. Room is a small, but everything else was very good.

    Just room size which made it difficult to spread out my work. Nothing which would prevent me from staying again.

  • Family with children

    The location is great with plenty of restaurants nearby.

    The room was a little small and I was glad I was a long way away from the elevators as the room doors are a little thin. Breakfast is adequate but lacking variety.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We loved the location - close to all the historical places in Philiadelphia. The breakfast was fast and tasty. The rooms were quiet for a good sleep at night.

  • Single
    10.0

    Very friendly and accomodating staff (I was quickly moved to a new room when I accidentally broke the shower head). Good breakfast selection. Close to many restaurants and shops. Liberty Bell is only a 5 minute walk away. Parking is around the corner

  • Family with children

    Best Western Independence Park is located literally in the historic Old City. It is a mere few blocks to all the historical sights. In one direction is Independence Hall and in another Penn's Landing for a lovely walk along the Delaware River. There are many restaurants of all varieties and for all budgets. Breakfast was included and offered Liberty Bell waffles. hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is located in an historical building and has only 36 rooms. It really enhanced our stay in Philadelphia.

    Our room was on the small side but certainly adequate and the tv was an old tube style.

  • Older travelers

    Needs updating. All areas were somewhat worn looking.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Convenient to Philadelphioa Museum of Art, Indenpendence Hall, Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, Caprenters' Hall, etc

    Pastry at breakfast was made out of cardboard

  • Single
    8.8

    A very nice placy to stay, just a block from the waterfront. The staff was very friendly and supportive. Overall, if you're looking for a decent place to stay in the downtown area, this could be an option.

    It was not as "European style boutique" as was claimed on the website. Decent but no-frills.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Great hotel! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was a tad small, but very clean. I wasn't there to hang out in the room anyway. AWESOME location. Just a few blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and surrounded by bars and night clubs. I'm not into clubs or swanky bars, but there is a great little Irish Pub that was just what I was looking for. Easy walk to the subway as well. We did not have problems with the "nightlife crew" either (loud people, loud music). You couldn't hear anything. I would stay again.

    The thermostat in the room. I couldn't get it to the perfect temp. No worries though, I just turned the fan on. It was a very minor detail.

  • Older travelers

    Inaccurate advice from front desk. No wifi in the room (so swapping between ethernet and wifi as I move around)
