10 Things to Love About Independent Collection

This fall, Independent Collection Hotels & Resorts® will celebrate its 10-year anniversary. That’s 10 exciting years of bringing people together, embarking on new adventures, and welcoming curious travelers from around the world to truly unique hotels and resorts we’re proud to call family. 

Over the last decade, our portfolio has grown from 5 city-centric hotels to 25 hotels and resorts across 15 U.S. destinations, from the golden coast of California to the concrete jungle of New York City. And we’re just getting started. 

Independent Collection is on a mission to offer more than a luxury hotel room, but a place that promises discovery, embraces creative expression, and inspires your independent spirit to see the world differently. 

We’re so proud of all that we’ve accomplished over the years and everything that’s soon to come. So in a shameless act of self-love, we’re sharing 10 reasons to love Independent Collection as much as we do. And during our 10th Anniversary Sale, you’re invited to join the celebration with up to 25% off your stay when you book in advance! 

Now, without further ado…


  1. We’re Independent
    It’s more than just a name. Our hotels and resorts are staffed with teams of people who love to think outside the box to deliver you truly unique and extraordinary experiences. Independent Collection is also dedicated to supporting independent businesses within our destinations. (Check out #6 below for more!)
  1. We’re Individuals
    No Independent Collection hotel or resort is like the other, and we like it that way! Each property in our growing portfolio is totally unique and bursting with personality thanks to locally-inspired design, architecture, and amenities that create a rich sense of place.
  1. Our Neighborhood Gems
    On the hunt for an authentic dining experience? Eat where the locals eat. At Independent Collection, we’re proud to offer one-of-a-kind culinary experiences that bring together locals and travelers for delicious food, great drinks, and lively conversation. Our award-winning bars and restaurants are neighborhood gems that reflect the local flavors, ingredients, and cultures surrounding them. 
  1. Location, Location, Location
    Our properties are located in some of the most exciting U.S. destinations, from historic Washington, D.C. to sunny Miami Beach. But we have plenty of restful retreats, too. Find us on the coast of Cape Cod, on an island in the Florida Keys, and beyond.
  1. A Place for Everyone
    Whether you’re a family with children, a couple looking to get away, or a group of friends reuniting for a wild weekend, Independent Collection has a place for you. Our eclectic portfolio has everything from urban hotels in the heart of the action to romantic resorts overlooking the ocean, meaning everyone can find their home away from home. 
  1. Our Love for Local
    Independent Collection proudly partners with local businesses and community leaders to introduce travelers to real, local culture. Think hotel lobbies decorated with local artworks, sunrise yoga class led by a leading local studio, and in-room amenities from the chocolatier down the block. Our on-site bars and restaurants also source ingredients from local farms, butchers, and fisheries for their locally-inspired menus.

    Through this commitment to our neighbors, Independent Collection Hotels & Resorts are a source of discovery, offering authentic experiences big and small, inside and out.
  1. We’re In The Know
    Our hotels and resorts are staffed with passionate, knowledgeable locals who are eager to share their picks not just on where to go, but how to get there and what’s worth trying. Whether you’re looking for a culinary adventure or a full day on the town, our teams will happily arrange it with personalized service and a dose of imagination.

  1. We Love a Good Party
    Big or small, corporate or social, we love a good party. And like our portfolio, meetings and events at Independent Collection are far from ordinary. In addition to beautiful indoor and outdoor venues, our properties offer state-of-the-art technology, tailor-made culinary menus, and personalized service from experienced teams.
  1. We’re Serious about Sustainability
    Since our beginning, Independent Collection has embraced environmental and community stewardship as an integral part of our business. Through our sustainability program, EarthView®, our hotels and resorts incorporate “green” amenities like energy-efficient lighting and thermostat technology, in-room recycling programs, electric vehicle charging stations, bicycle rentals, and refillable luxury bathroom amenities. Our Green Meetings approach ensures meetings and events are environmentally friendly, and many of our properties have been awarded a third-party building certification, such as LEED and EnergyStar. 
  1. We Genuinely Care
    Above all else, we at Independent Collection genuinely care about our guests. With a focus on personalized, attentive service, our independent hotels and resorts lead with heart to ensure your stay is nothing short of spectacular.
