My husband and I stayed at the omni in Dec for a wedding that was taking place nearby. Overall, the staff was really nice, the room was clean (although smelled a little musty), and the hotel is decorated well. However I found it odd that at check-in we had to sign a noise policy and were told to keep all...

The Omni Hotel, Independence Park was very enjoyable. The room was impeccable and had an elegant feel to it. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would choose the same hotel if I return to Philadelphia in the future!

This hotel is perfectly located for business or personal activities in and around Independence Park. It is fairly priced and beautifully maintained. The hotel and wait staff are unfailingly polite and the food was excellent.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Omni for one night in December. The location is fabulous and the views of Independence Hall were lovely. The hotel amenities are excellent and the staff is extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend this center city hotel for families and adults looking for a romantic get away!

We had a great time at the omni. We drove from NYC. Got in a little early. Concierge was kind enough to hold our bags for the day while my gf and i went out for lunch and exploration of the old city. The hotel is within walking distance to a lot of museums and restaurants. The staff there is...

Traveling on business, and needed a city location. The Omni Independence Park has an excellent location, with first class amenities and staff. Stay was perfect. Staff was attentive but not hovering. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

We have stayed at several Omni's and this one was just as nice as the others we have been too. Great location, beautiful hotel, friendly, attentive staff. Looking forward to going back when we have more time and exploring more of the historic district.

Stayed at the OMNI in Old City Philadelphia following a holiday party nearby. The location and accomodations were first class and within walking distance of many historic attractions. The hotel staff was wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel!

My staff and I have stayed here several times and always enjoyed my trips to Philadelphia. I like the proximity to my business meetings, the historical area and nearby restaurants are excellent. I've only dined in the hotel restaurant for breakfast but the food and service has always been very good.

Nice Hotel in a good location for sightseeing, eating at restaurants and shopping. Barman a bit "sour". Disappointing that hotel does not serve cuppachinos! Rooms need more lighting otherwise well appointed. Beautiful view of the park from my room window.
