The Independent is a 24-room boutique hotel located in a fully restored Georgian-Revival building located in the vibrant Midtown Village area of Center City, Philadelphia. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Independent received an extensive renovation before opening its doors to discerning tourists and business travelers in June 2008. The hotel comes alive with style, comfort and personality. Designed by Robert Moskowitz of Rittenhouse Interior Design Group, The Independent has an air of sophistication in a world of refined details where every item was carefully chosen to capture the city’s historical roots.
Guests are greeted by the 4-story hotel lobby and lounge, which is accented by a crystal chandelier. The feature wall of the hotel displays a 30-foot hand painted work of art by local muralist, Kim Senior. The color palette of the lobby is rich and soothing, reminiscent of Historic Philadelphia.
Spacious rooms with décor that invites you to unwind and relax offer a surprise at every booking. Bathrooms are spacious and luxurious, fitted with tin ceiling tiles. Some rooms have fireplaces; others exposed brick walls, cathedral ceilings, French windows, or loft bedrooms. This elegant setting acts as a backdrop for textural and seductive fabrics and furnishings, designed to complement the dramatic architecture.
Stunning inside, a world of entertainment awaits guests outside The Independent. Just five blocks from the Convention Center and one block to Philadelphia’s world-class performing arts district, Avenue of the Arts, The Independent features serenity and service in the heart of all that the city has to offer in entertainment, dining, and retail.
As with all Hersha Boutique Hotels, the interior of the hotel compliments and reflects the architecture and surroundings of the energetic local area, giving it a distinct personality and welcoming warmth.
