Would have liked free internet for the price we paid.
Location is good. Beds not comfortable at all. Internet didn't work, unacceptable considering there is a extra charge Keep a bottle of water in the room!!
The hotel is centrally located and very well maintained. I believe that the value for dollars was excellent. Service and amenities were also excellent.
Awesome building champagne at checkin have had many enjoyable and memorable stays. Understaffed, poor service sub par to other Ritz hotels. We were provided with wrong room on arrival. Room was somewhat dated and curtains had large weird stains on them. Carpet in room was also stained making it feel dirty. Restaurant service was horrible / waited 40 mins for a table then waited another 15 mins to get acknowledged by staff. Used express checkout, left some negative comments and asked for emailed updated portfolio via email - never received. I've had better service and value for money in other not so "refined" hotels.
I called ahead to let them know I am bringing my dog and was incredibly surprised to have been offered dogs bowls and a dog bed placed in the room prior to me checking in. From then on, the hotel made sure to provide excellent service for anything we needed. The room was gorgeous and have really comfortable beds! I'm not one to sleep in, but I didn't have an issue catching a few more hours of shut eye. I highly recommend staying here.
Nice location for nightlife and history tours. I receive a monthly check from the VA for a service connected disability -- my ONE night stay cost more than that entire check! And for what? I received no continental breakfast; parking is $50 a NIGHT; and my room with a king-sized bed was tiny. No idea if internet was included, as I was not given a password. I wanted to sit in my room and prepare for a speech I had to give, but, my absurdly expensive room did not come with a chair besides an ergonomically nightmarish desk chair. I had a ton of clothes because I was there for a three day wedding, so my hands were full. I received no bell-service, carried all my stuff to my room, and the keys didn't work; so I had to lug everything back to the front desk. Had to iron shirts for the wedding, the ironing board looked like it was bought from a yard sale. For the cost of this room, I expect quality amenities. Also, the bouncer for the rooftop bar, who looked a like a teenager, watched one of the wedding guests get assaulted, laughed, and did nothing. Honestly, we should've called the police. Posh and ostentatious, with little reward. Go somewhere else.
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.
Housekeepers were the nicest people in the whole facility 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
The staff was lovely -- so nice and helpful. Location was ideal, I'm a Hilton Honors member so free wifi, great views (large windows), nice room decor, lots of space, decent executive level breakfast/snacks. Beds were comfortable. Even on the 25th floor, you can hear traffic. It's not terrible, but noticeable. Bathroom sink was high (I'm short) -- again, not terrible, but noticeable. Pool was okay, but not great.
We booked the best suite on the 26th floor for our wedding night. The hotel gave two sets of our room key out so when we went up to sleep at 2am after our wedding, there was someone else's items in our room. They downgraded us to the open room on the 8th floor. I was not given a refund as the manager said it was an equivalent room... It wasn't. :(
It was all good
Location is good, although there are 2 different Marriott hotels next door. We went to the wrong one first and already had valet parked our car before we realized it was the hotel next door. Received an email confirming room would be ready by 3, upon arrival at 4 we were notified room was not ready and would be 45min. We were told they would call us when ready but after hour an a half of no call we went back to find there was a credit card issue which could have easily been resolved if they would have called. Wasted time wandering around downtown
Good check-in and upgrade to larger room. Good coffee maker, everything in working order. Decor is bleak. Fixures are minimalist. Lobby is a B-/C+.
Location and clean No parking available. Full size SUV would not fit in the local garage we had to park few blocks away from The hotel at $40 am night and we got charge every time we parked. Wifi was slow
Convenient location. Comfortable, clean room. Great breakfast. Friendly staff. We will stay here again whenever we return to Philadelphia.
Room was very clean. Comfortable bed. Staff was friendly and attentive via phone to front desk. Thin walls. Reception desk was slow as molasses. Possibly understaffed. Check-in on the computer took way too long especially having already provided all my details online. Dried creamer packets for the coffee in room is disgusting.
A lovely old home, now an attractive and conveniently located small hotel. Staff is attentive, rooms are clean and comfortable (two fireplaces in my room last night!) and breakfasts are lovely.
Great location, close to independence hall. Restaurants & bars within walking distance. But shower pressure could be better and you can feel vibrations from the underground trains (during the day only)
Everything was great
Everything was great The ventilation system was extremely loud. Breakfast included only coffee, bagels and cereals.
