    Our Accomodations

    The Omini is located in the heart of the Financial District. We came in on a Friday and the district pretty much closed down during our stay over the weekend. It was nice in the fact that it was quiet, however, it did make it a little more challenging with getting transportation b/c the schedules were on a reduced schedule for the weekend. The hotel itself was very nice. It provide a very comfortable time for us during our stay. The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. The restaurant that was located onsite was very average and very over priced. Overall though, I would stay there again.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Omni San Francisco Hotel

    Not much attention!

    from

    Beautiful building. I think it's an old bank. Stayed there right after it opened, and we were showered with attention so much so we thought we were at a Four Seasons Hotel. This time around - no such luck. Where did all the staff go? (check out the front desk crew's "business cards" and you'll see what I mean). The clientele had changed, too. A year or so ago, we encountered mostly business travelers, this visit it was more like a Hotels.com convention. And it showed... Too bad.

    One of the best (deals, that is)

    from

    My girlfriend & I stayed at the Omni when we went to San Francisco last weekend for a quick getaway. I've been very pleased with other Omni hotels, so I decided to give this one a try.

    I'm not going to repeat other reviews since it's clear that the hotel is beautiful and the service is top-notch. I'm sure that few people have gotten the deal that I did: With 50% off of a weekend stay, I paid about $98 per night! Forget the Internet. Join Omni's Select Guest program (no charge, no gimmicks) and they'll send you a few coupons.

    Between my airline e-fare and the coupon, my girlfriend & I were able to enjoy a fun, elegant, cost-effective weekend away. Who doesn't love a great travel bargain?

    Classy place

    from

    stayed at the omni for 4 nights. everything was great. room was clean, bathroom was nice. room was on the top floor which had 3 little windows with not much of a view. this did not bother us since we were not in the room often. location is a great plus. cable car access is across the street. chinatown was 2 blocks away, slightly uphill, which looked daunting the first time, but quickly grown accustomed to. the positive aspect was after eating in chinatown, the walk back to the omni is downhill. employees were very accommodating. only complaint was the staff at the bar were chit-chatting amongst themselves while we waited to be served, but only the first night. free internet access in the lobby is a plus. the gym is adequate (free water). did not eat at the restaurant, but it looked nice. omni is a classy hotel and we highly recommend it. we will be back.

    Loved it

    from

    We like to get away to the city for weekends once in a while and I was looking for a nice hotel that wasnt too expensive. I love tripadvisor so I looked up S.F and picked the Orchard (which was #1 at the time) They are a non smoking hotel (I know, I know) so were looked further. I finally landed at the Omni and i was very happy. I called their 800 and got a great gal who helped us pick a package. Got a romance package at 170.00 a night which included breakfast, robe, wine and chocolate. The room was a little small but lovely. It was elegant and new. We signed up for their frequent stayer program which gives perks and received a coupon for half off next stay and upgrade which were are using this weekend for a getaway and Christmas shopping. Close to everything.

    Chinatown, Northbeach and Union Square are all within walking. Great hotel.

    Omni's Room was Exquisite--A Cut Above

    from

    We spent two extremely comfortable nights at the Omni the weekend following Thanksgiving. The service--from the smiling doormen, to the front desk staff, to the room staff--was exceptionally friendly and capable. We had obtained a good rate via the internet, then took the advice of another reviewer on this page and joined Omni's frequent guest program, which got us a coupon for a free upgrade on a space available basis. We told the front desk staff to "surprise us," and they did--with a very spacious suite! It had every modern amenity--wireless internet connections, etc.--and rather formal, but attractive, 1920s decor. The hotel opened about two years ago, following a $100 million conversion of a 17-story 1926 bank building on California St., which is one of San Francisco's main avenues.

    Everything, including the marble bath, was immaculate. Due to the location on the edge of the financial district, 7 blocks from Union Square, there were no crowds of guests in evidence, but that certainly didn't bother us. The hotel will probably appeal more to those who like the formality and elegance of an earlier era over the energy and hustle of the modern age. The fitness center was attractive and very fully equipped. The hotel has a good restaurant specializing in steaks and chops, and a comfortable bar. Also, the Carnelian Room, on the 52nd floor of the Bank of America building across the street, is an attractive and comfortable (if expensive) place for a excellent meal with a view. The only down notes: parking was about $43.50 (including tax) per night, and we had to return to reality after our two day stay.

    Experience the Omni!

    from

    Spent the weekend of 11/15 thru 11/17/03 at the Omni and were very pleased with the facility and the staff. Had breakfast every morning at Bob's Chop House (inside the Hotel) where the food was excellant but a bit pricey for tourists. The room was spotless with a 1920's type of charm. If you plan to explore Chinatown or North Beach you'll find this location to be ideal but its a bit of a walk to Fishermans Wharf. See Sal the doorman for a taxi and a tip on where to enjoy a great meal!

    Stayed at the Omni

    from

    Stayed at the Omni early September, trying to impress my new love. The room was pretty standard, but the bathroom was above average. The view from our room on the penultimate floor was of an alley and a freight dock. The service was excellent. I left some items at the hotel but the housekeeping staff contacted me I was able to pick them up before I left town. Parking was a bit excessive at ~$40 a night.

    A great hotel with excellent value

    from

    Having stayed in several Ritz-Carlton Hotels across the country, I can safely say that the Omni San Franciso has all the furnishings to make you think you're at a Ritz, but without the poor service that you can expect from a Ritz.

    For a weekend trip, you can get a night's stay for well under $200/night in the financial district downtown if you look online, and I consider this a steal. You're away from the maddening crowd of tourists, yet within a few blocks of everything. During the week, the hotel provides a free car shuttle to take you anywhere downtown between 7-9 am - a nice perk.

    San Franciso is still hurting from the fallout in the tech sector, and it shows in the hotel prices. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    What's not to like?

    from

    The Omni is a world-class hotel, with large and lovely rooms, in the heart of San Francisco. My wife and I stayed here during the Bay-to-Breakers extravaganza. The service was excellent, and the rate we paid (about $145 a night) was a bargain.

    Glorious - and good value

    from

    This is almost certainly the best deal currently available in SF. From what I can tell, the Omni opened in 2001/2 (a $100m conversion of a 1920's office block) into SF's worst recession in decades. The result - a brand new luxury hotel with no guests. They appear to have slashed rates to get occupancy - $140 seems the norm at weekends (I paid $179 B&B). The rooms are beautiful and (obviously) brand new - the standard shoe-box shape but big and probably the loveliest you will ever have been in. Staff are also exceptionally friendly and keen to help. If you enrol in their frequent guest scheme (no charge, form on website) you get free coffee brought to your room each day and a 2nd free newspaper. Whilst officially in the financial district, its on the border with Chinatown and close to Union Square. Very strongly recommended.

We were given no compensation for the delay, and when we were (finally) in the air I was forced to buy food as I was startving and they didn't even consider making it complementary. Cheap *******s. Anyway, I eventually got to my hostel around 2pm and was quite cranky but set ...
