The Independence Park Hotel has been designated by the US Department of Interior as a National Historic Landmark, the building and hotel are currently listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

In Olde City Philadelphia, Chestnut Street was a central location for meetings, banking and social gatherings. Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and other American patriots often wandered through our neighborhood, dined and attended Church nearby.

The corner of Second and Chestnut Street was a thriving hub in early American culture, with a local brewry and vibrant merchant shops. But come 1829, the 235 Chestnut Street Building, once the site of a local brewery, had a new owner with a new vision.

Mr. Elliott had desires of opening a doll manufacture business and later commissioned local architect Joseph Hoxi, best known for his work on the city’s churches, to design his new building. The Italianate structure that stands today was designed and in late 1856 Mr. Elliott’s dream came true.

Elliott’s Doll Manufacture served the city and neighboring communities for years. Over time, the Elliott Building housed a local dry goods store and other business ventures.

Over 100 years later, with the original granite store front and Mr. Elliott’s name above the roof, The Independence Park Hotel was developed as the cities first historic boutique hotel.

Soon, we will again welcome visitors to Historic Philadelphia.


We’re ready to host your 2022 meeting, family reunion, group gathering and overnight lodging needs at The Independence Park Hotel.

Scheduled to RE-OPEN in January 2022, The Independence Park Hotel is the ideal Boutique Hotel for your Philadelphia special event.

We look forward to helping you plan and enjoy your upcoming Philadelphia event!
