This is a very nice hotel at a very convenient location in Philadelphia. Whether you are visiting for pleasure or business you can't go wrong. The food is excellent and the customer service is perfect. The view out of the window was beautiful both during the day and at night.

We stayed at the Omni the Friday after Thanksgiving and enjoyed the break and enjoyed Philadelphia. The hotel was very nice, the rooms were large, the beds were comfortable and we had a great view of Independence Park. The fitness center and pool was a nice addition and let us work the knots out after sitting in a car during...

I would highly recommend this hotel for a wonderful place to stay based on the quality, service, location and appearance. We had quests from our son's wedding stay here, along with the Rehearsal Dinner. Everything exceeded our expectations!

Had a wonderful 2 nights stay in a room overlooking the Independance Park. We had a very large corner room which was very spacious and clean also had a coffee machine. We had breakfast which was very nice on both mornings although the staff were very friendly they could have done with some new uniforms! Very close to Independance Hall/Liberty...

This Omni is at the top of their brand and very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. We arrived early and were accommodated so we can run and see all the historical sites for our quick visit to this city. We were given excellent dinner options walkable from the hotel. We had planned to depart early but my...

Beautiful old-world hotel, elegant but not stuffy. Spotless. Lovely staff (they actually listen when you make a request). Whole family stayed there Thanksgiving night. We used the pool, enjoyed the free coffee next morning, but above all, slept like angels in big, comfy bed. Great size rooms, huge bathrooms. When I had one tiny problem, staff was there in an...

The Omni is perfectly situated to enjoy Independence Park and the surrounding attractions. The hotel is clean, staffed with friendly professionals and priced right. It is not perhaps as up-to-date as a hotel charging three times the rate but it is beautiful and well maintained and in the right part of the city if you are visiting for pleasure. No...

We spent Thanksgiving at the hotel and had a great time. All of the staff were courteous and helpful, the customer service is A+. Food was good and room service was super fast and accurate. Room was spacious for a city hotel. Old school feel, but up to date amenities.
