Omni Hotel at Independence Park
401 Chestnut St., 215/925-0000,
A steep price (starting around $309) and a prime location make this AAA four-diamond luxury hotel in the heart of the historic district a favorite for well-to-do tourists as well as business travelers. Check the website and travel search engines, as major discounts can sometimes be found.
Boasting European-style luxury, the 150 large rooms offer every amenity along with great views of Independence National Historical Park. The on-site Azalea restaurant serves modern American cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the on-site bar has a sophisticated lounge atmosphere.
