We did our hotel block at the Omni, and it was a pleasure working with them! Because we reserved our block with them, they gave my husband and I a complementary suite for the night of our wedding. When we got back after the reception, we found a few cards from various members of the Omni staff, as well as some chocolate-covered strawberries and some chilling champagne. It was a sweet, unexpected gesture!Sent on 08/19/2013
We had brunch the following morning at the Terrace Room restaurant. The food and spread were both amazing, and the Omni helped coordinate tickets that we gave to immediate family and bridal party+significant others so that we could pay for their brunch as well. That was very easy!
One thing that was a bit of a challenge was creating welcome bags for each room. The Omni requires that the names of the guests are on the bags, which ended up being great because we could personalize each bag. At the time, however, it ended up being a bit of an unexpected headache trying to figure out who was staying with whom, etc.... which had more to do with trying to figure out our families and friends than the Omni itself.
If I had to book another hotel block for another event, I would not hesitate to book at the Omni!

Best Venue for a Wedding!
We got married here on 5/11/19. We had a great experience with our coordinator at the Omni, Erin, that works seamlessly with you from start to finish! The wait staff the day of our wedding was incredible, the food was perfect (all cooked perfectly and all came out hot and delicious). Everyone took care of us so well and the Omni really makes your process go smoothly. We have not one complaint! We used the grand ballroom and urban room for cocktail hour and wouldn’t have done any differently!Sent on 06/06/2019

If I could give Darlene Coons and the Omni more stars, I would! My fiance and I knew that we were picking a pricier venue, but we could not be happier with our choice. From the start, Darlene gave her time to us and never made us feel like "just another engaged couple." Our initial tour/q&a lasted almost two hours as she addressed our questions and showed us all of the physical spaces that we could select for our guests and ourselves to enjoy. The high- quality service never stopped from that day on. Darlene would always email us back within 24 hrs, and her emails were always clear. My fiance and I genuinely looked forward to meeting with Darlene for each step of the planning process. In the end, everything was wonderful, the food was SO good, and our complimentary Royal Suite at the end made us feel like we were capping off the most perfect day in the most perfect way.Sent on 06/19/2017
Photographing many events at the historic Omni William Penn Hotel, the luxury, the opulence and the beautiful refinements all add to the spectacular nature of this beautiful hotel and settings. The legendary events held at the hotel, the various celebrities, heads of state, prominent politicians and of course the excellent cuisine makes a customer feel honored, special and takes you to another time and place in the world of luxury. Our studio has photographed weddings, family portraits and celebrity parties for very distinguished guests. The Grand Ballroom, The Hope Room and The William Penn Ballroom are reminiscent of the great bygone days of class, luxury and great customer service. We were very impressed with the total experience at this wonderful and historic hotel. Lora and staff handle everything for your very beautiful wedding, reception, party or corporate event. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
