“Great place in Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Lovely hotel. The rooms were great with terrific views. The pool was a nice feature after a day of site seeing. The location is close to many fine restaurants and all of the major sites in Philadelphia.

The Omni hotel Philadelphia was a really elegant and classy hotel in Independence park. I stayed with my family. There were about 15 floors. We stayed on the 6th floor and our room was right at the end of the hall. So when we walked in we literally walked a small little hall. When we passed the hall our room was really nice. We had a large king bed and a sofa bed. Our view was of the Museum of Independence,Independence park and some buildings. All in all you would enjoy your stay at Omni no matter how long you stay there.

Well located luxury hotel in the middle of many of Philadelphia's historical sites. numerous nearby restaurants complement hotel offerings. Park the car and walk! Rooms are quite large and bathrooms also spacious.

Wonderful stay at the Omni; huge immaculate room with great views and very quiet for a city. Great location at all historic sites. Staff were fantastic and great free morning coffee for my trip made for a great stay. Hotel didn't have perfume to cover up musky smell like so many others--just naturally fresh and clean.

We stayed here for the last 3 nights of our trip. It was a great location, in the historic district and close to most attractions. The front desk staff as well as maids and facilities folks were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was huge. Had a comfy king size bed. The bathroom was also very large which made it easier to spread out a bit. My only room complaint was that the windows were filthy so you couldn't really look out them at the nice view of the park. Also, we had a good breakfast in their restaurant but felt it was a bit overpriced (nearly $45 for 1 order French toast, 1 yogurt, 1 coffee, 1 OJ and were charged for hot water only - no tea bag). So we ate elsewhere for our remaining meals. But otherwise was very nice.

Room Tip: I think rooms would be quiet all over the hotel so you'd probably be fine anywhere. I always lik...

As always you cannot go wrong with Omni. From the moment we checked in until the moment we left the service and facilities of this hotel cannot be beat. The rooms are clean, spacious and very well appointed. The staff will go out of their way to ensure a spectacular experience. We were a family of 5 and given a parlor suite with excellent wrap-around views of Independence Park, the Delaware River and New Jersey. The kids loved their complimentary backpacks and all that the area had to offer. The concierge was extremely helpful and his choice of restaurants for both dinner and breakfast were excellent. I cannot praise this hotel enough, if you are going to Philadelphia and want to see the sites there is no better location than this.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the park

The staff was unbelievable. They catered to your needs and so friendly. Room was clean and had a beautiful view. I had valet my car and left something inside and the staff retrieved in less than 10 minutes. We had room service and it was very quick and the food was delicious.
