We stayed here for a historic tour of Philadelphia. The hotel is immaculate. The service is excellent. The rooms are adequate, and the windows open a little bit to get some fresh air. We were on the 11th floor with a beautiful water, and historic area view. Breakfast room service was excellent, and right on time. Morning beverage service is offered if you are a member of Omni Hotels (do this online for free). Also they bring the children cookies and milk at night. The valet was worth it. The door people were helpful, and polite. The front desk service was excellent, and quick. The housekeepers were efficient. It has a pool, and sauna which my daughter loved. It has a fitness club which is adequate. Hotel will email you info about the area ahead of time, so you can plan your trip.
We did have dinner at the hotel one night. I did not care for the food, but the breakfast buffet was awesome. We did not use the bar in the lobby, but it seemed quiet, and clean.
My daughter got food poisoning the first night, and I had to take her to a hospital. Jefferson hospital is a one minute cab ride, and the staff there were excellent. Hotel service was so helpful, and understanding. They took away all the soiled linens, and cleaned the bathroom with bleach. They also shampoed our rug. Don't eat at the Continental. Cheesesteak eggroll, was the culprit.
My husband, and my other daughter enjoyed a private history tour with Thomas Walker, a local tour guide. You can book him through the hotel. If you have children, don't worry. He will make it interesting, and fun for them, too. You pay $50/hr which is not much more then a historic bus tour. You get a private guide for your family, he uses his vehicle, he gives the kids a toy, and gets some great personal photos for your family. My husband said he was worth every penny, and my nine year old daughter talked about what she learned all day. Book right through the hotel. He will call you ahead of time to personalize your tour.
