Great stay

It is an absolutely awesome stay in Omni with only one block away from the Independence Hall and Historical sites. It is also really quiet during the night so you can have very good rest! Anyway, absolutely great stay at Omni!

Excellent Choice for the Historical District

This hotel has the ultimate location for visiting Independence National Historical Park. It faces the Second Bank of the US and is only steps away from Carpenters' Hall, Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, the First Bank of the US, Ben Franklin's Museum, the City Tavern, etc. The staff is extremely helpful, the rooms are spacious and well configured so that there is plenty of room both in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The view from the higher floors is magnificent! And, last but not least--the price was very reasonable!

If only someone had cleaned the room.

I'll start with the positives. The bed was comfortable and the room decor was nice enough. The lobby was pretty and the reception staff was great. The pool and sauna were nice. The fitness center was also very nice. Now for the bad. The room was not at all clean. The corners of the bathroom floor, especially in the toilet area, had quite a bit of hair. The bathroom counter had dried toothpaste. If they had removed the silver tray with bath supplies, and the water and wine glasses, perhaps they could have actually cleaned the counter off. Some of the towels had long hairs stuck to them. The desk in the bedroom was covered with dust - it looked like it hadn't been dusted in at least a week. The pillow cases weren't on the pillow all of the way either. The food in the restaurant was adequate, but not great; and I waited to be served a ridiculously long time to be served, even when there weren't any other customers in the restaurant. The wait staff doubles as the room service delivery staff, so you are served between room service deliveries.
