 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.

Neighborhood
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.

Omni Consistency

You can't go wrong at an Omni and that applies here. Superb service, well appointed and spacious rooms, gracious decor, tasty food, etc. The only ding here was that the windows (even on the 12th floor) were inadequate for buffering the street noise. Not a big deal - a Saturday night spent in Philly by Independence Hall is likely a much quieter place than it was in 1776.

Nice hotel but a bit pricy

Nice hotel but $250+ per night is a little much. Nice rooms, restaurant it a bit shabby. Great management and love there is a massage option.

Nice hotel and Enjoyable staying

The staffs are really friendly and helpful. The room has a common door to another room, not as sound proof. Fortunately, the next door is quiet. Other than that, everything else is perfect.

Great location, no complaints

My wife and I stayed at the Omni and picked the hoel based on its location. The location in Philadelphia is perfect if you are looking to explore the historical sights, and it's easy to get around to other places in Philadelphia as well. Our room was quite large, which we appreciated. Although it didn't have a view, we didn't mind, since our priority is a quiet room. The bathroom was clean, though the shower head was a bit weak. Wi-fi was free and fast enough for basic surfing, though if you were here for business it might be too slow for serious work. Overall, I would stay here again.

Amada is two blocks from the hotel, and Morimoto is three. Both are excellent.

Perfect location

This hotel is in the exact right spot right across the street from Carpenters Hall and next to Independence Square on a hot July its nice to be able to return to a cool hotel an oasis from all the activity. the staff was very personable especially David at the front desk and after hours consear, was very heldful and made great recommendations. the actual Consear was less helpful and leaves at 7:30 Way to early! My only complaint was the showerhead. a nice rain shower head, but no regular one difficult to use.

Great Hotel at a great location!

Hotel is clean, comfortable and within walking distance of so many sites. You are able to see many of the historic sites beginning right across from the hotel. You catch a tour bus one block down from the hotel and this takes you on a 27 stop tour of Philly. Many great restaurants within walking distance. Estia was a great Greek restaurant we went to. Staff was extremely helpful staff, rooms that were very clean and comfortable. Valet service that was beyond compare!
