As everyone knows, I have a love of swimming! It is engrained in me and always will be. I made it a mission to train for this event and to finish off a great year before I leave for a new one!
This swim would not only represent the 3rd ocean I have swam in but it would also mean the last time I would see my parents before I head off on my …
... after we had finished we walked along with another English girl named Kat to the bus stop to catch the 923 bus to the zoo. As we were waiting at the bus stop, I attracted the attention of an older woman who felt the need to share her life problems of drug addiction, stealing, alcohol problems and the fact that the bus was $2.25 a go and she had to attend meetings with her psychiatrist every day and the only way she could afford it was to keep ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omni San Diego Hotel
Don't stay at the lower level or bring an ear plug
We stayed at the Omni in late May. The staff were courteous, service was good. The rooms are clean and well designed. Everything was great until 12 midnight when we hear this loud band noise coming from somewhere. I call the front desk immediately to find out what's going on. The staff told me that they had a problem with the next door night club. If you want to stay at this hotel, it is a must to stay at the highest level you can and away from the night club. I was disappointed because when I check in at the hotel , I have specifically asked for a quiet room. The front desk give me a room on the 9th floor and you can hear the loud night club very clearly. People were screaming and singing all night long. The management did eventually move us to a different area of the hotel. We need two double bed room and somehow their computer system were all mess up. The rooms that their computer show as 2 double bed were all king size bed . We moved from floor to floor with my 3 years old and 5 years old eager to sleep. It was a disastrous night. It took two hours for the bellman and us to finally settle into a king size bed with an additional roll away.
Two thumbs up!
I stayed at the Omni, for the July 4th weekend. I heard it was the new place to stay. From my first steps into the lobby, I was in love. The building was incredible. The rooms are so much better then I could ever of imagined. Oh and the service! I stay in hotels 20 nights a month for work,and I have never had such great service as I did at the Omni. The two gentalmen working the overnight shift were some of the niceiest and most helpful front desk agents, I have ever met. One was named Chad, and I did't catch the others name, he was tall and goofy looking. Reminded me of Bachelor Bob. John the bell man helped me with my bags, and had unparalled knowledge of not only the hotel but of downtown san diego.
If you stay in only one hotel stay at the Omni San Diego, it will blow your away!
Great Room, Great Rate
Every year I make a trip to San Diego to visit friends or to get away from LA Traffic. I usually stay at cheap (note *****) hotels or motels. This time I checked out the Omni on their website and decided to give them a try because of a great rate.
I arrived on July 17th and stayed for 2 nights. The room far exceeded my expectations. (Then again I'm use to cheap, ***** hotels.) The room was immaculate. I had a view of the Petco Park and Gaslight District. The bathroom was my favorite. It was clean, had enough towels and every amenity I could possible need and did not have to go out and buy to use.
Please take advantage of their concierge service. The people there were very friendly and gave me detailed directions to a car wash as well as the best way for me to get to a friend's house. You can even ask to have the feather pillows replaced with foam pillows.
The only draw back is the construction going on near-by. There is no parking. You pay for a valet service at the hotel which costs over $20 a night. Other than that, I would definitely come back again. It's so close to everything.
Elegant luxury in the heart of the city
I stayed at the Omni on business and found it to be and excellent choice. The friendly staff was very helpful and always gave us maps to everywhere we asked about, which I thought was a nice touch. Our great corner room overlooked the ballpark and the bay and the huge bathroom was especially nice. It was modern yet comfortable, a nice change from the frilly florals in other hotels. The Omni is right across from the Gaslamp District, home to tons of dining and shopping options. I would definitely stay at the Omni again!
I stayed at the Omni for one night last week, and was very impressed with the staff. Everyone I encountered was extremely polite, helpful, and intent on fulfilling my needs. The rooms were clean and comfortable. My room overlooked downtown and Petco Park. I had a great view of the fireworks after the game, and even saw the game winning home run! But the highlight of my stay was how I was cared for by the entire staff of the hotel. I'd gladly stay again at the Omni.
New is not always good!
I traveled to San Diego for a relaxing weekend and decided to try a new hotel in town, the Omni. It is located downtown next to the new ballpark.
I've stayed at many other hotels in the area before (I like to stay near the Gaslight area), including the Hyatt and the Hilton. Both of those hotels were so much better than this new mess of a hotel.
First of all, I could barely get into the place because there was a game going on at the ballpark. In fact, the police would not let me to the front door, so I parked a ways away and walked in. The lobby was a zoo, with people everywhere, and all of them headed to the game. I thought I was in Wal-Mart, not a luxury hotel. There was nice looking staff everywhere, but they were attending to others.
The room was nice enough, but small and a little crowded. The rooms at the Hyatt are better. And the Hilton, right across the street, is so much nicer. There was a party out by the pool and I had a hard time getting there. It was not a relaxing place.
If you have a chance to stay at the Omni...don't!
Loved the Omni
I surprised my husband with the Omni Bed and Baseball package last weekend and we had a wonderful time. Our room was upgraded to a corner room with balcony and large windows. We enjoyed the view of both Petco Park and Coronado. We loved the gorgeous bathroom and the tranquility of the furnishings/bedding. The staff was very professional and accomodating and we loved the server out by the pool bar. I enjoy traveling and also like to sample local hotels and we will definitely be back at the San Diego Omni.
Well Done, Omni!
My stay at the Omni 17 May - 21 May was a first time at any of the Omni hotels. I'm an extremely "picky" traveller, and I loved it! The friendliness of and service provided by the staff is, in my opinion, is second to none. The hotel itself has a zen-like tranquility. My room was extremely comfortable and well-appointed, but the bathroom truly awesome. The Gaslamp District is right across the street, and it's a 10 minute walk down a path starting behind the hotel to Seaport Village and the waterfront. I usually stay at the a Carlton or Meridien hotel when possible in the US and Pearls in the Pacific, but the Omni San Diego has outclassed them! I am now intent in visiting all the Omnis in Texas and Mexico for weekend getaways to find out if the whole chain is this fantastic.
Well done Omni!
Loved the Omni
What a beautiful spot. We went with the Bed and Baseball package for 219 a night. The room was very nice and very comfortable. We had a decent view--could see half of the new Petco Park --looked down on the construction of the new parking garage. Alot of construction going on around the hotel but the location was just perfect. The gaslamp district was wonderful and so was Horton Plaza. The ideal location for a baseball fan--a pedestrian bridge connects the hotel with the stadium. The package included 2 game tickets but next time I would upgrade and get better seats. The tix with the 219 package were upper deck.
The pool is awesome on the 6th floor and the staff were very helpful. They are still getting "the bugs" out--as we had a problem with overcharges when we checked out but they took care of it all and we left happy.
Only complaint--I thought the staff in the adjoining restaurant/bar were a bit loud--we sat at the bar one night and on more than one occasion heard profanity from the staff when they were speaking to one another. Really not appropriate in this business.
We will be back. Beautiful hotel and superb location.
Nice new hotel. A little disorganized two weeks after the opening but staff seemed intent on serving guests. Good points: nice new rooms with good views, great pool, close to gaslamp & downtown. No so good points: pricey, bathrooms are semi-private (louvers on doors & internal "windows"), hotel located right next to the baseball stadium so area gets overrun on game nights -- but I'd probably stay again.
