The Independent Hotel Philadelphia

The Independent Hotel Philadelphia |  Philadelphia |  A boutique hotel for the independently minded. A great small and intimate boutique hotel very conveniently and strategically located right of South 13th. Street in the heart of what they call here in Philly, the Gayborhood. A fine boutique hotel for the discerning few, for those that define individuality. The Independent is a 24-room boutique hotel located in a fully restored Georgian-Revival building located at 1234 Locust Street 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. (Video below is my room KING Deluxe )

The Independent Hotel Philadelphia, is the perfect option to stay for PIFA 2011 – Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts 2011. (April 7th. to May 1st., 2011) to be hosted at the Kimmel Center. PIFA is all about artistic expressions from across the region and around the world. And the world will be invited to join them in a new moment of innovation, collaboration and creativity. Art is made up of moments. Moments of inspiration. Power. Emotion. Grace. Passion. These moments collided in Paris in 1911 and changed the path of art and conventional creativity. There will be another spectacular convergence exactly 100 years later.
