Independence Inn

The inn in Stars Hollow where Lorelai is the executive manager, Sookie St. James (Melissa McCarthy) is the head chef, and Michel Gerard (Yanic Truesdale) is the concierge. The name suggests the independence that Lorelai found for herself in Stars Hollow through working at the inn.

It is based on The Mayflower Inn (now The Grace Mayflower Inn & Spa) in Washington Depot where Amy Sherman-Palladino stayed during her visit to the town. The real life inn is rather more luxurious than the Independence.
