Good Location Nice Gym

The location of Omni is perfect, close to the major attractions, nice brunch restaurants and subway. It does have a nice gym in the lower level with a swimming pool. The decor and amenities are in line with a 4 star hotel, but as this is an older hotel, expect some decor to be worn out. The most disappointing thing with this hotel is the cleanliness of the room. I found hair on the carpet the day I checked and the bed cover was stained and ripped on two of the days I was there. They even put the long pillow on the carpet. Seeing how the carpet is not clean, that's not good.

Wow! Paradise

I took my girlfriend here for a day trip and a one night stay and we were blown away. We were on the fourth floor overlooking independence hall and all of the old part of philly! The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. Our windows opened up to a beautiful view of philly, which left us in awe. The best part is, is that it was only 20 or 30 dollars more than a poor hotel in other parts or out of the city! I have absolutely no complaints about this place. We walked from the hotel to various parts of the city like the reading terminal market and Rittenhouse Square! This place is worth the price and more. I will definitely be returning

So Comfy

The view of Independence Park was amazing, even in the winter. It was nice to return to such a cozy room after the medical appointments which brought us to Philadelphia.

No complaints

The service was very good. I only stayed one night, but everyone was very nice and helpful. Rooms were nothing special, but it was just a basic room.
