Great time was had by all, well by us.

Great location for tourist sites in Philly. Room was smaller than what you get with new hotels, but this was offset by the setting, charming 1800's building in the scenic, Colonial part of Philadelphia. Historic Colonial buildings all around. Great restaurants nearby. Worked out better than I had hoped. Best Western Breakfast and Tea in the lobby 4-6.

Great Location

The location is great, close to all historical attractions. There are plenty clubs and restaurants around this area. But, the hotel room is too small for the price that you pay

Perfect location.

My husband and I loved the Best Western Independence Hall hotel. It is perfectly located within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. It is also in the middle of Philly's old district with every kind of dining imaginable in every price range. The rooms were clean and comfortable and decorated according to the history of the city. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was very good with a variety of choices. The elevator broke down for a few hours when we were there, but it was fixed quickly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Philly for a vacation.
