Great stay in perfect location

Large, comfortable room and very friendly staff. Location is perfect for those interested in the many restaurants, movie theaters, and shops in the Society Hill/Penn's Landing/Independence Hall areas of east Philly.

Great getaway

This is a perfect hotel for a weekend getaway in Philly. The Omni is in the center of everything and it was great leaving the car and walking around town and taking the subway to see a Phillies game. The room was very nice with a very pretty view and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Luxury at its finest.

Yhe hotel was beautiful, service was excellent. Very close to historic sites. Our phones in the room did not work and within minutes they were fixed. This hotel would be a bit pricey for most people.

Omni on Easter Weekend

The staff at the Omni Hotel were very nice. The room that we had was very clean overall but seems to be a little dated. We had an inner room which our window looked straight into another wall. The restaurant was not open on Easter Sunday, but there was a continental breakfast available.

Omni Philadelphia

Parking next door to the hotel was convenient. at Bourse garage. Front staff was very friendly. Bellman was courteous, friendly, helpful and informative. Location was perfect for sightseeing historical sites. Only downside was some construction going on outside till midnight, and no free bottled water.
