I stayed at the Omni 2/24-2/26. Staff was curteous, but not overly accommodating.
The rooms were very average; decor, beds & linens were old, thin & in need of improvement.
On Saturday 2-25, we left the hotel at 9:30 & returned at 5:00 to an UNCLEAN room. I called the front desk, & they advised housekeeping was there until 6 & they would send them at once. At that time, there were 3 girls trying to rest, shower & get ready to go out to dinner - NOT A GOOD TIME FOR HOUSEKEEPING! I just asked for towels, kleenex & a lightbulb to be changed that had burned out in the bathroom. I was extra annoyed to discover that my brother's room, which was 2 doors down from mine, had been cleaned (he was w/us & returned to his room at the same time.)
The concierge called & offered us a bottle of wine, but we passed. We were just over it.
The location was OK, but the areas in Philly you want to explore are all pretty close to each other, so earlier posts which stated the location can't be beat - I just don't agree. The location alone is not enough to sell me on this property again - not for the price & substandard rooms & service.
