Hotels for the independently minded traveler

The Independent Collection is for the independent traveler who seeks authentic and unique experiences and things, not the trendy or traditional. Bringing personality and discovery into the travel experience, our growing collection of boutique lifestyle hotels take inspiration from our locations and the people, places, cultures, and traditions that make them individually distinct. Each hotel perfectly blends modernity and chicness with just the right of intimate neighborhood charm, delivering sincere service and engaging experiences to appeal to the discerning traveler in all of us.

Our hotels are located in vibrant, storied neighborhoods of gateway cities across the U.S. We pride ourselves on being the experts of our neighborhoods, inviting our guests to savor what’s interesting about the community and experience the true spirit of the city, from the energetic creativity of downtown Brooklyn to the laidback charm of Philly’s Midtown Village to the carefree sophistication of Santa Barbara’s West Beach.

Community initiatives at Independent Collection

Knowing that it’s the little things that make a big difference, Independent Collection’s community initiatives work to impact positive change at a local level. From our hotel fitness and wellness programs to showcasing our hotel partners, which include locally owned shops, artisans, charities, and organizations, Independent Collection is committed to supporting our guests and the residents and businesses of our neighborhoods.

We also take pride in championing diversity in our neighborhoods, particularly in the LGBT community—all our hotels are TAG-affiliated and members of IGTLA. Soon we will also be supporting local public schools through our IC Community Giving Back Program, which provides mentorship, tutoring, and other services to students.

Independent Collection is also heavily committed to environmental sustainability and community engagement throughout all of its properties. Through the EarthView Sustainable Hospitality program, many of our hotels have implemented green energy and recycling programs, as well as individual community and charity initiatives.
