 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.

Rookie historians cannot get any closer to Independence National Historic Park than staying at the Omni Independence Park. 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.

Overnight Delight

The staff here is exceptional--warm and welcoming, friendly, accommodating and professional. Is would suggest upgrading TV options, however. Offering only analog channels in a cable world isn't adequate.

We had dinner at Fork, a block and a half away, which was the best and most memorable dining experience we've had in a very long time.

Good Location Nice Gym

The location of Omni is perfect, close to the major attractions, nice brunch restaurants and subway. It does have a nice gym in the lower level with a swimming pool. The decor and amenities are in line with a 4 star hotel, but as this is an older hotel, expect some decor to be worn out. The most disappointing thing with this hotel is the cleanliness of the room. I found hair on the carpet the day I checked and the bed cover was stained and ripped on two of the days I was there. They even put the long pillow on the carpet. Seeing how the carpet is not clean, that's not good.

worst stay of my life

The fire alarm went off twice during the night. Both false alarms, apparently they don't have sufficient ventilation in the kitchen - which is unacceptable. After the alarm was turned off, they couldn't make the elevator to work again so had to climb stairs back to room. The staff were not apologetic at all for me sitting until 4.30am in the lobby. No compensation, except a mediocre muffin and coffee in the lobby. Rooms and hotel in general needs a major refresh. Overall, a nightmare.

hot hot hot

checked in at late afternoon and room was 79 degrees with the a/c set to 69. I thought that perhaps it was just turned on prior to our arrival. Oh no. Got back to the room at 10:30pm and still 79 degrees. I called the front desk and they sent someone up to look at the problem. They came up quickly and after some time had it supposedly fixed. It did cool down for a whie but in ther middle of the night it was back up to 79 where it stayed until checkout. The front desk thanked us for telling them and that was it. Not a good response! Plus the key cards took at least 10-15 attempts to get each one to work...I know you are thinking user error but it was not.

Good proximity to national park

The Omni is a very good hotel conveniently located next to Independence National Historic Park. Parking as with everything else in Philly is a problem. Very good restaurants in walking distance. Valet parking at the hotel comes at a premium. The staff at the omni were exceptionally nice, everyone performed flawlessly.

Have a taxi or car drop you off... You'll save a lot of money by not bringing your own vehicle.

Great location, near Independence Hall & Liberty Bell

Stayed here for a day, for meetings on Market Street. It's close to the underground train too. Nice big rooms, and upscale amenities. Free WiFi was nice -- many of the larger hotels charge for it, while it's free at the budget hotels. Lobby has plush comfortable sofas. The restaurant in the hotel is expensive, but you can get sandwiches, salads, soups, etc. right next door, outside the hotel.
