Hotel of the week: The Independent, Philadelphia

The Independent is located in Philadelphia's City Center in a handsome Georgian-style building.

This new bargain option in Philadelphia’s Center City “does not fit squarely inside a well-defined box,” said Andrea Sachs in The Washington Post. Located in a handsome Georgian-style building, it offers “the homeyness of a bed-and-breakfast” with the free-spiritedness of a boutique hotel. “While the decor leans toward broodingly arty,” you don’t feel trapped inside a museum. There’s room service for simple cold fare but no on-site restaurant. Still, don’t miss the wine-and-cheese soirees held in the “living-room-esque lounge.” theindependenthotel​.com; doubles from $149
