10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The downstairs spa and pool was relaxing and very clean. The staff throughout the hotel was friendly and quick to take care of anything we needed. Even though the valet parking quickly retrieved our car and due to the difficult nature of street parking in Philadelphia, well worth the cost. We had a wonderful time at the Franklin.
10.0 Wonderful
Cons:Breakfast not included
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:The location was great--right across from independence park with many other attractions within easy walking distance. We had a great view of the park through two big windows in our room. The staff was very friendly. Although the hot tub was broken and much missed, the spa was otherwise very enjoyable. I particularly appreciated the valet and doorman offering to allow us to park in front of the hotel while we loaded the car with our luggage.
Cons:The drapery partly obscured the great view, and could not be pushed out of the way.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We stayed one night and decided to extend our stay for two more nights. The location was perfect - walking distance to historical points of interest in Philadelphia and to the wedding and reception we attended. The room was well appointed with a nice view.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Loved everything except restaurant staff. The front desk staff was excellent!
Cons:I tried to call in a pick-up order, and your restaurant staff was rude and didn't put in my order.
3.7 Poor
Pros:Housekeepers were the nicest people in the whole facility
Cons:Let me see Spa - the massage therapist texted on her phone through the entire massage, massaging with one hand then putting phone on my back Front desk - asked for late check out, was told it was not possible because hotel was sold out that night. As the conversation progressed or digressed as the case may be, was told that I could extend for another night. Not sure why it's okay to lie to people to their face Summary - not only will I never stay at that hotel again in philly, I will never stay in an Omni again. Not sure why the employees don't understand that their pay checks come from money paid by guests. You might want to let them know how the revenue is generated. Sad day
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Beautiful rooms with attentive staff and great location. My stay couldn't have been better! Can't wait to return to the Omni.
8.5 Very good
Pros:The location is perfect in the center of the historic district of Philadelphia with top restaurants within a short walking distance
Cons:Hotel is a bit tired and could use quite a bit of updating.
8.3 Very good
Pros:Great location, friendly staff.
Cons:Noisy refrigerator in room.
