“Omni at Independence Square”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Outstanding facility and a short walk away from all the historical sites. Hotel staff were to a person friendly, helpful, welcoming. Desk staff assisted us to locate restaurants they suggested and all were excellent and within walking distance from the hotel. We had a wonderful experience at this hotel and have identified Omni Hotels as one that we look for when traveling.

Had a one day lay over in Philly. Great location for a quick visit to major local historical sites. A block from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Good did not use any of the amenities or the restaurant and so can't rate them.

A quiet hotel that has a no noise at night policy. Yes, sweet dreams are possible when traveling! Great check in, bell staff, front desk, etc. Very impressed with our room and the view overlooking Independence Park, right in the heart of the historic district. Our accomodations were clean, quiet, and everything was in perfect working order. Parking around the corner in a garage ($27 per day). The bar was quiet although the TV was on (no sound). It was wonderful to stay at a hotel where calm, quiet, order, and relaxation ruled.

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!

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.
