Beautiful hotel. Literally right across the street from Liberty Bell. Busy with weddings while we were there. Restaurant is excellent too. In-room breakfast was fine but desserts at restaurant were even better.

We loved this hotel for our impromptu one-night stay in Philadelphia. The room was extremely comfortable, with luxury bedding and a perfectly firm mattress. The bathroom was relaxing and perfectly appointed. We loved being in the thick of things downtown. The restaurant downstairs has delicious food!

THE GOOD This hotel is in an excellent location for anyone wanting to spend a lot of time at Independence Hall, or the nearby sights. The service is great. Just to give one example, one of the room service staff asked me what kind of beer I preferred from the menu and then went out of his way to bring... More

Probably one of the nicest hotels to stay in Philadelphia. The staff are wonderful, pleasant and very helpful. Free bar between 5-6pm and decor is eye catching.

This was our first experience at a Kimpron Hotel, and it was perfect. We chose this hotel in order to be close to the many attractions at Independence Mall, and it was a great choice.

Have stayed here twice now. Once took train from Manhattan to Downtown Philly and then took subway right to hotel. Easy check in. Very modern. Nice evening wine reception. Rooms are modern chic and have fun animal print bathrobes. Also room the essential power outlets everywhere to charge devices. Highly recommend this hotel. Right by Independence Hall.

I stayed for two nights this past weekend. We never had any service from the cleaning staff the whole time we were there. We were out of our hotel room for 7 hours one day!
