We used the Couples Romance package to celebrate our 22nd Anniversary, and there was a chilled bottle of the house champagne (Marquis de la Tour, not Chandon as indicated on the website, but still met with my wife's discerning tastes) and chocolate-coated strawberries waiting for us when we got to the room. Our room on the 11th floor overlooked Independence Park and was very luxurious, with bathrobes and slippers waiting on the bed. After enjoying all that, we went down to the pool, which is small but adequate, and had an enjoyable time there, as well. It is shared by the spa so voices are kept low, and we met a nice mother and daughter who had come in from the suburbs for a spa day. We had dinner in the hotel's restaurant, Azalea's, which was excellent and the wait staff brought us a delicious dessert compliments of the chef. The $100 food/beverage credit (part of the romance package) just covered our dinner and drinks. After that we enjoyed a nice twilight stroll around Independence Hall and the surrounding park. We didn't want to leave the following morning and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper-level room overlooking the park.

We had another great stay at an Omni Hotel. This hotel is very nice. It is 1/2 block away from Independence Hall and a block from the Liberty Bell. You can't beat the location. The staff were all very nice and helpful. The room service was very good, but pricey. The Cobb Salad came with a copious amount of crab and was delicious, but cost almost $20. The hotel did give us complimentary wi/fi, milk and cookies at night, and hot beverages in the morning, which were very appreciated. The valet parking takes 30 minutes and is $37/night. The room was very large, and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. We would stay here again.

The Hotel is in a perfect location in the historic area of Philadelphia. One block from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. 15 minutes from the Airport. Very nice property, not huge place but in a great way. Most of all the service was excellent!

Wonderful hotel within walking distance to the Philadelphia Old Town Square. The hotel room was very spacious,clean and had a wonderful view. The bathroom was also very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Housekeeping did an exceptional job of freshening the room in the morning. Highly recommend becoming a Select Guess to have coffee and paper delivered to the room in the morning as well as a turn down bed service at night. We hadn't used the restaurant, but the lounge was very nice and accommodating which offers a full service bar as well as a wide selection on their menu if choose to get a bite to eat. They offer a very nice fitness center and lap pool. What was a clincher for this hotel was it is conveniently located to all Old Philly had to offer, no car was needed. We will certainly return to this hotel!

Room Tip: High away from the elevator; after you book the room send the hotel an e-mail and let them know your preferences. This hotel is very accommodating if they have the rooms available.

We drove around the block a few times because we weren't sure about where hotel parking was. I got out & my hubby drove around the block again. The first person I came into contact with was Andy- the door man. What a great first impression he gave to the hotel! So friendly, kind and just plain helpful! He gave us the parking options ($27 self parking-$37 for valet- if you are staying for more than one day, valet is probably the best deal, as you can come and go at no extra cost). I checked in (with Wendy-I think). so quick and so polite! As I waited in the lobby for my hubby to come from the parking garage (located directly behind the hotel) I saw Andy interact with many hotel guests and greeted them like family! The 2 girls at the front desk greeted everyone with a smile and there was one girl who came up and was having issues with her credit card and they were very polite (when even I was tired of listening to her). Our room was very nice and clean and comfortable. It is situated so that you can easily see all the historic sights with in a few blocks. We had room service as we had had a long day at Hershey Park and didn't want to go out. We had hot sandwiches and they were very good. The service was incredible there too! Check out went smoothly & quickly. We really enjoyed our stay. Cons..the windows are very thin and you can hear every conversation on the street below & we were 4 floors up. The room walls were very thin and we could clearly hear our neighbors. Pros...We didn't check out til noon and we never once had housekeeping knocking on our door- we actually never even heard any doors being pecked on- (that was very refreshing- not feeling like you are being rushed out of your room by impatient staff).
