We stayed at the Omni for 2 nights for Mother's Day weekend. I am VERY picky when it comes to hotels, and will usually spare no expense for accomodations. This was a last minute trip, and I wanted to be close to the major Philly attractions. I was a bit concerned by a few of the reviews for the Omni, but am happy to say I was very impressed with the Hotel. The lobby is decorated beautifully, and our room was spacious and CLEAN. Our request for a corner room on a high floor was accomodated. The corner room was large, particularly for a city hotel, with fantastic views. Also, we had no problem with noise levels in our room. I recommend that you join the Omni Preferred Guest program online, its free to join, and includes amenities such as free wi-fi in your room, free bottled water delivered to the room shortly after check-in, and complimentary coffee and juice delivered to the room each morning. We used the indoor pool in the afternoon, which was spotless. We used the Valet parking, and although some reviews said it was over-priced--- $32 a day-- we found it to be well worth the cost. It allowed us full in/out privileges, and our car was always waiting for us, even at the busiest times at the hotel. The hotel location was fantastic---literally steps from the Historic attractions, and a short drive to South Street, south Philly cheesesteak spots, Reading Terminal Market and the Philadelphia museum. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant, but I recommend Mrs. K's Koffee Shop just a few doors down. It is an old-fashioned counter-service coffee shop, with great coffee and great breakfast..
