“Omni Pholidelphia”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

the hotel is very pleasant and the staff extremely attentive. The room was clean but the temperate control was very poor. It was cold and dry and i could not get it to be comfortable. I have stayed at many Omni Hotels and my experience has always been goof to excellent. This trip was at best okay

The Omni was an absolutely fantastic choice for our stay in Philadelphia. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and comfortable. The customer service in every area exceeded even a rating of '10'. Perfect place, very relaxing, affordable, excellent views and location. We will be returning soon!

I was amazed at the affordability of this great hotel--small enough that I was recognized and welcomed whenever I came back in the door, and lacking nothing I needed or wanted. Thank you for being a welcoming beacon in the storm--well, nasty snow anyway. It was a pleasure to stay ans expect to return when possible.

I simply loved everything about the Omni Hotel. From the second I walked through the door the staff was so friendly and professional. I really felt like they went above and beyond your typical hotel staff. The location was great, the hotel was beautiful. The restaurant was nice and the first floor bar was fun, too. Our bartender, Sue, was so helpful and nice to us. We will absolutely be staying at the Omni the next time we are in Philadelphia.

Pros: Amazing service. Everyone was incredibly friendly, and the Loyalty Ambassador had a free chocolate mousse delivered to our room for my husband's birthday. If you are a select guest (it just requires an e-mail address!), they deliver a complimentary beverage to your room each morning and internet access is free. The location is also great. Walking distance to many of Philadelphia's best neighborhoods, attractions, and restaurants.

Areas for growth: The towels in our room were frayed. The cable stopped working 45 minutes into our stay and was not fixed before we left. We could hear children playing in the room next door to us. All of this was addressed by the front desk. Although they weren't able to fix the cable, they did take 10% off of our bill.

We'd stay again and would probably visit other Omni properties, as well.

The hotel was elegant and the location could not have been better. We experienced some minor annoyances with the room. The heat was defective and could not be repaired during our stay. The cable TV went out right in the middle of the big football game throughout the hotel and was not fixed while we were there. The staff was very friendly and made every effort to address our concerns. If you are planning to see the historic sites in the Old City you cannot make a better hotel choice. We would definitely return.

The Omni Hotel at Independence Hall in Philadelphia is, hands down, my favorite hotel! My family and I often visit for short trips and it is difficult to find a hotel with friendlier staff. They always remember us and make our stay a pleasure. My son loves the complementary cookies and milk! The hotel is well maintained with an excellent indoor pool. Also the location is prime for Philadelphia - just one block from Independence Hall and other historical sites. Many excellent restaurants are within a 10 minute walk.
