 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.

Perfect location

[...] But we were able to get a good off season rate and I knew that it is in a good location with many restaurants and historic sites nearby. When we got there the hotel didn't feel too big or corporate, was very comfortable, and the service was excellent without being pretentious. Our hotel room was large with great views, and was nicely furnished. Wireless internet was free. We enjoyed the use of the fitness center, pool, hot tub and sauna. The pool room, like everywhere else was very clean and nicely maintained. My wife is much harder to please than me and she LOVED THIS HOTEL!

Amazing Hotel

This is the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. Unbelievable for the price! My husband, our 4 year old daughter, 6 year old son, and 16 year old son stayed in a suite with a very comfortable king size bed and a pull-out sofa bed. The room was HUGE. The view of the city and the Delaware River was stunning. Our room had two tall windows with deep window seats. The bathroom was beautiful. Very clean. The staff was fantastic. And, most important- location, location, location. Independence Park was so beautiful. We stayed over 4th of July weekend. There were reinactors in period dress everywhere. My 6 year old was recruited to the continental army. To say he was impressed is an understatement. We walked to all the historic sites- all withing a couple of blocks from the hotel! There were several fireworks displays visible from our room on the 3rd. We walked all over the city. One word of warning- PA does not sell alcohol in many places. There was a hotel bar and one restaurant we ate at served alcohol, but there was only one liquor store in town. It was a long way away and it closed before dark. I would expect a hotel as nice as this one to cost twice as much as they charged. Do keep in mind that there are a lot of people to tip. I will stay at the Omni Independence Park again for sure.

Date Night on the Town

Surprise date night out was great as usual. Love the Omni Hotel and their staff. Even though there was a wedding during our stay, not once did we feel put out by the staff. They were still just as welcoming to us as they were to others. This was our 2nd stay at the Omni and it was just as great as the first. The front desk staff recommended Jone's Restaurant for dinner and I will be forever be grateful. They really help make our night.

Great Hotel in a great location

We were very pleased with this hotel. I gave it all 5s, which I rarely do as there is always something to improve. My wife and I spent a weekend in Philly. The Omni was located perfectly - we walked to all the major attractions and restaurants on our list. The room was very nicely appointed and clean. The only downside is that the door was not as soundproof as it could be so we heard some hall noise and the elevator). The staff was very attentive and the price was very reasonable and a bargain for the quality level. We spent time in hotel bar, which I usually don't do, but this one was very nice and reasonably priced. The bartender steered right and we enjoyed a few martinis and some of the house wine (not listed on the drink menu).

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Franklin Court is right near the hotel, but is tucked away in an alley and easy to miss. It is the location of Ben Franklin's house which he built and lived in until his death. There are houses still standing on the property which he built to rent out. You can see the remaining foundation of his house and there is a museum on site. Its well worth doing and we almost missed it.
