Just two blocks from the Liberty Bell, the Best Western Plus Independence Park Hotel is a boutique-style hotel surrounded by the charming 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. 

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.

Enjoyed Most: With the exception of Craig, or Greg, the staff was very nice. Craig or Greg was very passive aggressive, and purposely left out information regarding the change we made in our reservation.
Other Comments: When changing the number of days for our reservation, travel zoo contacted the hotel, at which time the necessary change was made. Upon arrival, the front desk clerk Craig or Greg told us our whole reservation had been canceled. I called travel zoo and the error was corrected. However, it should be noted when needing to change our reservation I had called the hotel directly and spoke to this Craig or Greg. I explained that I needed to cancel only one night of the 3 night reservation, Craig or Greg told me to call travelzoo, which I did. Travel zoo made this change and also spoke with Craig or Greg, so he was not "unaware". Upon check in, it was only when at the conclusion of this check in disaster, I asked him directly his name did he volunteer his name, no name tag was visable. Had I know this Craig or Greg had dealt with both me and travelzoo in making the change.....
