This was fifth hotel I stayed at with my wife on our honeymoon-roadtrip and it was definitely a nice hotel, we had a great view of Philly and the room was large and luxurious. We were in Philly for Independence Day so it was an interesting stay. Only minor complaints.
Overall the room was excellent, very luxurious and clean. I wasn't a huge fan of the shower, but that is minor. One thing I found weird was while the lobby and rooms were air conditioned, the hallways of the hotel were not. This isn't a big deal, but a bit strange when exiting the hotel you go from cold, to hot, to cold, to hot again (outside). I understand that this is probably to save energy, so I guess it's OK.
The service was good at the Omni, none of the staff were overly friendly but they weren't necessarily rude either.
Room Service/Dining (N/A)
We didn't eat in the hotel, we only stayed one night and didn't really have the time.
The location of the Omni couldn't be better, right outside independence hall. We had a view of the park and the water, very nice. We also got to see fourth of July fireworks in our room, great location.
