The staff at the Omni in Philadelphia was exceptional. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to be a part of our special day and went well out of their way to accommodate every person and every request. In particular, Lauren Westerman was by far, the best. She handled every single thing with such precision and enthusiasm that she is quite literally worth more than her weight in gold. Do not miss out on the opportunity to work with her in fabulous facilities with wonderful people.

Spectacular! Our decision to have the wedding here was a brilliant one! Lauren is a dream to work with, the room was beautiful, the food delicious. The location made for gorgeous pictures in the park. They only have one wedding at a time and the entire staff from bellman to room service seemed to know who we were and to be excited for us. I wholeheartedly recommend this venue.

The Omni Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding. We loved the location, the ambiance, the food, the staff, everything!! Even having to transition coordinators, our ceremony and reception turned out so beautifully. Can't thank Lauren, who had to pick up on our wedding details so soon before the event, and the entire Omni staff enough! I was so reassured that everything would go fine with her professionalism and attention to detail and it did. It was a perfect night. Our guests continue to rave about how wonderful the food was, and how the hotel was in such a great spot for visiting the city. Especially want to thank Kevin, Tarra, and Sue too for their service during the reception with us and our guests during dinner and at the bar. Thank you Omni for giving us such a memorable wedding to look back on!

We held both our wedding ceremony and reception at The Omni Hotel at Independence Park, and chose the 5-hour, open bar, sit-down menu. We were looking for a more intimate, private venue for our ceremony and reception, and the Azalea Room is just that. At first, I was hesitant to book the venue because it does seem rather small when you first walk in. On the day of our wedding though, we had plenty of space and it never seemed cramped (we had about 95 guests). Plenty of room to dance and a spacious bar area. Several guests commented that they loved the layout - it was like a large, private dinner party.
The food was absolutely delicious! Couldn't get enough of the hors d'oeuvres and loved our entrees. Chef was very accommodating for allergies/vegetarians. Our cake was exactly what I had asked for and delicious.
The presidential suite is by far the best hotel room I have ever stayed in. Parking at the hotel is expensive for your guests, but comparable to all other venues in the city.
Alicia Reinsel, the event coordinator, was helpful, straight-forward, responsive, and flexible. Even though we were on a budget, Alicia found a way for us to have all of the things we wanted in our wedding. She and the chef provided us with an alternate/more affordable cut of meat when the filet was outside of our budget. Alicia made the venue look personal and beautiful with the few extra decorations I provided (family pictures, candles, etc).
I know some people shy away from "all included" wedding packages, but The Omni allows you to have everything included while making it your own. On the day of, my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything - Alicia and her staff took care of it and gave us the best day of our lives. Many of my friends are taking out loans to afford weddings at other city locations. I had a center city, evening wedding on a popular date and stayed UNDER BUDGET! I have absolutely no complaints about our experience with The Omni.

Alicia at the Omni was absolutely irreplacable. She easy to work with and incredibly helpful from the day we first contacted her. She had suggestions that were helpful without being pushy and was willing to do anything to make our wedding great. She is so conscious of every little detail on the day of; I could not have asked for more. She was a dream come true for us as bride and groom and all of our guests.

The food, setting and staff at the Omni were unbelievable. Willing to accomodate any and all requests and executing it perfectly. I could not imagine our wedding going any better and I could not imagine our wedding anywhere else.

I can't rave enough about the incredible job that Alicia and the Omni staff did. She was there for me every step of the way - We exchanged around 100 emails in the last eight months. Alicia really did save my sanity, and handled a million small details so that I didn't have to. At the reception itself she was constantly checking in with us, and was there for anything I needed. My mother loved her! Every guest I spoke to told me that the food was beyond amazing, and a couple people even told me that it was the best cocktail hour they'd ever attended. The room itself was beautiful, the staff was helpful, attentive, and prompt, and I wanted to hug all of them. Plus, we got the Penthouse Suite for the day of the wedding and the wedding night. If you haven't already booked a venue, please, please, please go look at the Omni.

When my husband and I began planning our wedding we knew we wanted to give our guests (many coming from out of town) a true Philadelphia experience. The Omni Hotel was the perfect venue to do just that!
Working with Alicia and the rest of the staff at the Omni was wonderful! She was always quick to respond to an email or a phone call. My husband and I lived in NY during our wedding planning and weren't able to get into town very often. She was willing to work around our schedule when needed.
So many of our guests commented on how wonderful the staff, food and atmosphere was. The food was amazing! When we went in for our tasting we were treated like royalty and went home full and happy!
The Penthouse Suite was beautiful and they were even kind enough to give us another suite for the night after the wedding.
They even included a military clause in our contract, which would allow us to switch our wedding date without penalty if my husband's orders from the Navy changed. Luckily, the wedding went on as planned, but it was reassuring to know we would be protected if anything changed.
The service was top notch and the Omni made our wedding day so amazing! We would definitely recommend the Omni to any bride and groom.

Oh, Omni. How I love you.

My husband and I discovered the Omni back when we took a trip to Philly with a friend while we were dating. We fell in love with the place right away. Everyone is friendly and pleasant, the rooms are beautiful and immaculate, and the place itself is just stunning.

When we got engaged, we started looking for venues and the Omni came up. We had priced venues around us (Northern NJ) and they were crazy expensive, so we were expecting the same from the Omni. Turns out, they were actually a little bit cheaper and we got more from them for it. AND! We were out of town, so we were kind of dreading the logistical nightmare that long-distance wedding planning would be. But here comes the master of wedding and event coordination, Tara. TARA! Half of this perfect rating is the result of her. She was AMAZING. We sent her a bajillion emails and would occasionally show up unannounced to chat with her (we were in the area meeting with other vendors and thought we would stop in and say hello), and she was patient and accommodating throughout everything. WE. LOVE. TARA.

On to the food. Oh, the food. Delicious doesn't begin to cover it. Unfortunately we pretty much missed our cocktail hour, but we heard everything was great - even the stuff that we requested that wasn't on their approved list of hors d'oerves (they're so awesome! So, so awesome!). The service at the cocktail hour and dinner hour was exceptional as well. Everything was top notch. Not a single detail was overlooked.

The Omni was absolutely perfect. We can't imagine having had our wedding day elsewhere. And a big, special shout out to Tara, the resident Superwoman! Thank you thank you thank you!
