WE spent the night at the Omni to celebrate a family wedding, from the time we pulled into valet until we pulled out of valet the staff were friendly, genuine, and very attentive. A fabulous hotel at a great convenient location, you won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

This hotel is perfect for anyone visiting Philadelphia. It is located across the street from Independence Park, and all of historic Philadelphia. The rooms are spacious and the decor is current. The concierge and front desk personnel are very personable and helpful. The bar is on the first floor and large and a perfect place to sit with friends. All in all this is a great hotel. The only negative is the restaurant. Breakfast was very expensive and not up to the quality of the hotel.

With only one day in Philadelphia we needed a good location, The Omni was in the heart if it all. A nice corner room with lots of space. The bath was shallow not too good for a decent bath and the coffee was poor but the hotel was absolutely spot on and we got a good price through Booking.com.

If you want to walk to all the historic sites in Philly, this is the hotel for you. Perfect location, perfect stay. We had a corner room which was very large and cozy. The views from the room were great. The hotel was clean and the staff was efficient. We valet parked and the attendant was very nice. The price is $37 for the night which is good considering the location of the hotel. I would stay here again if I ever go back. Highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room which is larger with King bed

We stayed at the Omni for 2 nights. The hotel is in a very good position in the centre of the historic district. The room was good and the bed really comfortable. Coffee in the reception area was very welcome. Helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. Overall a very good stay.

This was a very nice hotel with a hard to beat location for access to the main historical sites in Philly. The staff was friendly and attentive, the rooms were nice and comfortable and you can't beat the location. I would absolutely stay here again.

Stayed here after a wedding reception. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable. The hotel itself was very beautiful. The air conditioner was either not working, or on too low to notice, because I had to frequently leave the reception and cocktail hour areas to cool down.
