 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.

Revised

This is a revision of my previous post. Was contacted by the hotel that the charge was incidental and shold reverse itself. Stayed there a week ago and still on the card. Still the cleanliness could have been better.

Will explore other options

I was going to rate the hotel at a 5 but after receiving a $50 incidental charge on my cc without my knowledge of any incurred charges. Tried calling the hotel with no response. There was a bottle cap between the bed and nightstand. Not the neatest room I'very stayed in. All of which I was willing to overlook at $180 for the night. Location was great. They did let us check in early and check out late. If that is what I'm being charged for I should have been told that at checkout, instead of 'you're all set'. Guess I'll never know.

Hotel was right across from the Liberty Bell and near many good restaurants downtown. They were also dog-friendly. Nothing special about the place, but clean and comfortable.

Very nice hotel, excellent location

Stayed for a short visit to attend a holiday party. Hotel was clean, check in smooth, valet timely and attentive, location was excellent. In the heart of Old City, just a few blocks from many historic sites, restaurants, nightlife, etc. If you are visiting to hit tourist spots, this would be my choice. Other popular hotels east of broad are in not as nice parts of the city or are not as clean or nice. This hotel is the best east of Broad that I have stayed in.
