We booked this hotel because it was so close to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The hotel was very clean and the service was excellent. My children loved getting milk and cookies before bedtime. Become a select guest if you book this hotel.

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!
