 The Omni Group's flagship downtown Philly branch, the Omni Hotel Independence Park Hotel Philadelphia reflects its Society Hill location along with rich history in its plush, old-European decor, grand piano and sparkling chandeliers. The dusky drapes and cozy booths of the Azalea Restaurant compliment the mansion-house feel, and the regional US cuisine ranges from lobster bisque to veal chop. Take an after-dinner dip in the Jacuzzi, or check in for a well-earned massage at the Balance Spa after a long day of historical sight-seeing. If you're on a health-kick, the special Get Fit rooms come with private equipment, and guests can sample the Ideal Living options for more balanced dishes on the hotel's menu.

Set across the street from Independence Hall and the First Bank of the US, this Society Hill area is best experienced on foot. A ten-minute walk will take you to the Liberty Bell, while the Benjamin Franklin Museum enchants the young and old with artifacts, displays, and animations that introduce visitors to the rebellious man behind the diplomatic mask. 5th street SEPTA station is on the other side of the park, for those seeking access to the Center City West district.

Excellent Choice for the Historical District

This hotel has the ultimate location for visiting Independence National Historical Park. It faces the Second Bank of the US and is only steps away from Carpenters' Hall, Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, the First Bank of the US, Ben Franklin's Museum, the City Tavern, etc. The staff is extremely helpful, the rooms are spacious and well configured so that there is plenty of room both in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The view from the higher floors is magnificent! And, last but not least--the price was very reasonable!

If only someone had cleaned the room.

I'll start with the positives. The bed was comfortable and the room decor was nice enough. The lobby was pretty and the reception staff was great. The pool and sauna were nice. The fitness center was also very nice. Now for the bad. The room was not at all clean. The corners of the bathroom floor, especially in the toilet area, had quite a bit of hair. The bathroom counter had dried toothpaste. If they had removed the silver tray with bath supplies, and the water and wine glasses, perhaps they could have actually cleaned the counter off. Some of the towels had long hairs stuck to them. The desk in the bedroom was covered with dust - it looked like it hadn't been dusted in at least a week. The pillow cases weren't on the pillow all of the way either. The food in the restaurant was adequate, but not great; and I waited to be served a ridiculously long time to be served, even when there weren't any other customers in the restaurant. The wait staff doubles as the room service delivery staff, so you are served between room service deliveries.

Great Location

Booked this hotel due to having a sister in the intensive care unit at the Children's Hospital. Was a little dissapointed that the hotel doesn't offfer discounts for families with children in the hospital. The hotel is in a perfect location, very safe to walk the streets. We walked down the street to Zento, a Japanese restuarant that I highly recommend. The hotel its self was really nice and clean. Upon entering our room, there was trash on the night stand and a half empty water bottle in the bathroom. The shower was also very hot or very cold, literally no in between. Didn't call down and complain bc we aren't too picky and we had bigger problems to deal with than a hotel. Overall would definitely stay here again, especially considering the area. Should really think about giving discounts to families with children in the hospital! Happy with our stay!

Best stay in Philly thanks to the Omni

Great price, great location near all the historic sites, very safe area thanks to location near Liberty Bell teeming with great bars and restaurants. Staff was incredible, friendly, never got the sense they had to have a tip for going out of their way. Couldn't recommend enough. Also, great for kids.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Drop the car off as Philly is very walkable, and use some of the parking garages within a couple blocks walk to save additional money on parking.
