“Loved everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

THIS is the place to stay when visiting the historic district in Philly! We traveled as a family of four, booking a king room with sofa bed. It was perfect for us!

My husband used the spa services for a massage and said it was wonderful. The spa has a special room for spa guests to relax, with low lighting, coffee, infused waters, and comfy chairs. My children went for a quick swim in the hotel pool. It's not a pool for children, but it was clean, with lots of towels, and also a hot tub!

The hotel has a friendly and knowledgable staff, who understand the value of good customer service. The lobby has *good* coffee in the morning, along with cold, infused water in the afternoon! We loved our stay here!

The restaurant was okay, very expensive for what you are getting and with slow service. On the second day, we went out and ate at local places instead.

I highly recommend this hotel! We will definitely stay here on our next trip!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the historic park!

Everyone is super nice, the hotel is spotless, beautiful, and nice and quiet. i went for a wedding, and it was the cheapest of my options, but i was very surprised at how nice the place was. i'd definitely recommend.

Great Hotel. We could see Independence Hall from our window. 5-10 minute walk to unlimited restaurants. Independence Hall. Liberty Bell. The Mint. Betsy Ross house. Ben Franklins Grave. Hotel very nice. Staff very courteous. They even had goodie bags for our children upon arrival.

Enjoyed the week of July 4th in Philadelphia. The Omni is a great location within the historic district, walking distance to the major attractions and restaurants. Our room had a great view of independence hall, just awesome to see it from the room when you wake up. We had a corner room, so might have been a little bigger than most. It was very comfortable for 4 of us, and had great views.

Staff was great, Andy the doorman was especially friendly and gave us some good restaurant picks. Although an older hotel, the Omni was well maintained and clean, with added historic charm. Clearly a great pick for anyone visiting historic Philadelphia. Didn't get try the restaurant we spent most of our time exploring.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room facing independence hall.

We just returned from a one night stay at the Omni. Very nice hotel. We arrived early, and they let us go ahead and have our room. We had a king room with a pull-out sofa for our son. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Hotel is walking distance to all of the historical sites.

You can't even come close to beating the location of this hotel if Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are on your short list of things to do while in Philly. We spent two nights here and our 10th floor King room was just lovely with a magnificent view of the river, the park across the street and the Philadelphia Skyline. The bed was sooo comfortable and all of the furnishings were gorgeous. We ate breakfast each morning in the restaurant here and were quite pleased.

My husband wasn't happy that the air conditioner in the room couldn't be turned down below 68 degrees. We like to have the room cool when we sleep and I must admit that it did seem a little warm at this temperature. I also agree with other reviewers that this hotel is more adult friendly and the pool is geared for adults rather than children.

However, the quality of the hotel, and the value and the pleasure of the experience of staying here, for me, was much greater than these minor issues. I strongly recommend this hotel, especially for those who want a beautiful convenient location of good value to visit the historic areas of Philadelphia.

We stayed two nights at the Omni. I chose this hotel due to it's proximity to Independence Hall and Liberty Bell.
Room- the room is very nice with nice toiletries. It's a great sized room for two people. We are on the 6th floor streetside. As others mentioned, there is street noise but it winds down at night. You can also hear the wind whistling through the windows--again it died down or the curtains covered the noise.
Restaurant- we ate there for breakfast and dinner. The food is pricier. I enjoyed breakfast more. The dinner menu didn't have much variety. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating.
Pool- we went to go for a swim in the pool and were very disappointed that the key was missing for the lift. Without the lift or actual stairs (like in the hot tub) my mom can't get in and out of the pool. We also had to ask for towels as there were none out.
Overall I'd stay again due to the location of the hotel.
