 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.

Great hotel, great location!!!

We loved it here. The location is right in the heart of old city without being an old uncomfortable building. Staff was very helpful and friendly The deal we got on this room could not be beat. The only disappointment was the spa. The whirlpool was way to hot to use and the spa services were unavailable for the most part because they were either closed or did not have trained staff working.

Benjamin's Best is right next door. Great coffee, sandwiches and ice cream. The owner is very friendly and you do not have to wait in a long line for service. This is a great place to grab a quick snak or srink before you head out.

Amazing Hotel

Good price for this 4 star hotel. Obitz should not require a minimum amount of verbage here. Heck, they got my money, a few words should suffice.

Friendly staff, beautiful view

Location can't be beat if you're visiting the old historic bits of Philadelphia, but within a 15 minute walk you can hit the cultural/arts district as well. Good restaurants all around (Amada, Fork - go to Fork's casual cafe for breakfast - and Zahav all within a few blocks. Three of the top restaurants in Philadelphia!) Very friendly, helpful staff, from the doormen/greeters, valets, front desk, et al. Really won us all over. Stayed on the 9th floor, and the room overlooked the park, which was beautiful and green, but also included the waterfront (and a battleship), the CC East skyline, etc. The room was very comfortable - some of the bedding and upholstery looked a bit worn, but otherwise the furnishings were terrific. Not cheap, but found a deal online that brought the price in line with the service and excellent location.

Good restaurants all around (Amada, Fork, and Zahav all within a few blocks). Fork's casual cafe on Market between 3rd and 4th ("Fork Etc.") is a great place for breakfast. Fresh baked brioche rolls every morning to go with nice strong coffee.

Very pricey but nice place

I was only here for a night and found it to be quite a lot of money for only needing to sleep somewhere but it was a good location and easy to find. Not many places to park around the hotel, so had to do valet, which was $37 a day! I will probably search for a different hotel at a lesser rate if I were to be back in center city 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.
