We stayed at the Omni Marina Tower Jul 25-27, 2004. I would recommend this property if nothing else for the beautiful view of the marina across the street. We went to the wrong tower (Bayfront) and stood in line for 10 minutes before realizing we were in the wrong place. They offered to check us in but we'd have to get our key at the front desk of the other tower. So we just drove over and checked in in the right place. Not their fault but just be aware and go to the right tower to check in. All parking is free, ample, and convenient which was a nice surprise.

Our room was on the 9th floor. It had a nice balcony but to our disappointment all balconies have been permanently locked. I'm sure they have a very good reason for this but it was a shame not to be able to go out and enjoy it. The room was definitely showing age -- the carpet was stained and the bathroom looked like it had seen better days. But the amenities were upgraded from a standard hotel and were very nicely done I'm sure in an attempt to compensate for the worn room. The bed was comfortable and had feather pillows (didn't use them so can't comment on whether they were comfortable -- MemoryFoam pillow goes wherever I go!).

We didn't eat at the hotel and didn't swim but the pool and restaurant looked nice. The staff was very friendly and accomodating and we were allowed a late check out.

The only complaint I have about this hotel was the elevator service was very slow. Almost every time we went to go up to our room there were 10-15 people waiting for an elevator. Since there are 3 elevators, I can only assume (and hope) one or two weren't working.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again if I ever go back.
