You’d never guess that this building—listed on the National Register of Historic Places—is part of the Best Western chain. Combining modern hotel amenities with plenty of character, the 36 comfortable high-ceilinged guest rooms ($222–267) are decked out in Victorian-era furnishings.
In a prime spot among Old City’s most popular restaurants and bars and just across the street from Independence National Historical Park , prices at this popular hotel are considerably higher on weekends in summertime.
A complimentary continental breakfast with a make-your-own-waffle station is included. Small dogs (weighing less than 10 lbs.) can stay for a $50 non-refundable fee.
