More Room Types

Just two blocks from the Liberty Bell, the Best Western Plus Independence Park Hotel is home to 36 rooms in a boutique-style hotel to give guests the type of charm typical of the surrounding Old City neighborhood. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places -- it was once home to a doll manufacturing business and local dry goods store -- and its central location makes visiting other national historic sites easy. 

Just beyond the hotel's doors, discerning foodies will find numerous eateries representing a diverse range of styles and cuisines. Independence National Historical Park, The Betsy Ross House and Penn's Landing are all within three blocks. The sports and entertainment complex -- home to the Flyers, Sixers, Phillies and Eagles -- is five miles away. If you need to get around to different parts of the city, several bus stops and the Market-Frankford Line are within two blocks.

All guest rooms come equipped with complimentary high-speed Internet and period-style furnishings. Bathrooms have granite features to keep the hotel looking contemporary despite its historic roots.
