I always look forward to staying at Omni properties. I have previously stayed at Omni in Atlanta (Omni CNN Center) and in NYC (Omni Berkshire). I drove to the property and pulled up in front of the door on Chestnut, then utilized valet parking. Check in was quick, but warm and welcoming. I was told that Wi-Fi was free (yay!). My two children were provided with little tiny Omni backpacks with some activity sheets and shall toys inside. Fun! I was also told, out of earshot of the kids, that on your first night in an Omni hotel, the kids get free milk and cookies delivered to the room at bed time. Not being able to wait, I called down and summoned the milk and cookies at 4pm. They indulged me. Comparing it to other Omni hotels in my mind, I was firstly impressed that the rooms in the Independence Park location are HUGE! Maybe it is because I live in NYC, but this double room with two queen beds is bigger than my apartment back home. This hotel is also a great location. My two young, tired children and I easily walked to lots of sites in the Historic part of town, including the Liberty Bell. I would definitely recommend this part of town and this hotel for a laid back, enjoy-the-city Philly vacation.

Visited Philly about a week ago. Lucky to find this gem for a weekend stay. We booked the Presidential suite and it was fantastic. The bathroom has heated floors, a full body shower and is decorated beautifully. Neighborhood and house were very quiet and comfortable. Walking distance to South Street. Make sure you follow the directions that are sent to you with your confirmation as there are two separate buildings for this B&B. We went to the wrong one first because...well...because I'm a guy and don't read directions all that well. Opps!
rooms where not up to pars stayed in 2 different rooms on the 2nd floor smooking section. Was not impressed at all! the first impression I had, bedding is so depasser not counting that the bed seems small the pillows I'm not even going to start please put them in the trash! for 92$ a night I was not even close to being comfortable.On the upside the customer service was superb! Mahir and Ilda I think that was that sweet young lady's name really made it pleasant checking in.
