“Great experience in downtown Los Angeles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Stayed for one night on our way back from camping in Santa Barbara county. Stayed with two children and a friend and her two children. They were able to get us rooms on the same floor on short notice, and upgraded one of our rooms at no charge. The valet was very helpful, the bellman was nice to my kids, check in and out was pretty easy, the room was very nice, the food was pretty good, and the location is very central. Will stay there again if ever in downtown Los Angeles.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

We wanted to stay in the downtown area during our short trip from London and picked the Omni largely on the grounds of the good Tripadvisor reviews. It turned out to be a great choice and we would strongly recommend it as a reasonably-priced downtown option. We didn't appreciate this when we booked, but it turns out to be really close to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Museum of Contemporary Art - both of which were on our must-see lists - so the location was fantastic for us. It is adjacent to California Plaza - a lovely open space nestled between the high rise buildings with fountains, seating, lemon trees and fast food places for lunch. It's close to Civic Center and Pershing Square metro stations (although the journey back is up a very steep hill, so use the Angel's Flight funicular - only 50c a one way trip - unless you want a good workout). The hotel itself is efficient and easy to find your way around. It's largely a business hotel but very comfortable and good value for leisure travellers too. There's a (very small) outdoor pool, a gym, restaurant and bar and the hotel offers a courtesy car for short hops (up to 3 miles) on a first come first served basis. I have docked it one point for the concierge service, which could have tailored its offering a bit more. Don't get me wrong, they were helpful and eager to please, but offered a one size fits all service. They have a standard photocopied sheet of how to get to the major visitor attractions, but I don't think they had tested them - the suggested 1 and a half hours to Getty Centre was well over 2 in reality. But generally this is a great hotel.

The rooms are great-spacious, clean, great design, great TV!I loved the beds-really comfy.

The hotel provides complimentary shuttle within 3 miles radius, just go to concierge or walk in front of the hotel and ask the valet service.

The hotel has a small coffee corner, which sells simple starbucks coffees, muffins etc. As we did not book the hotel with breakfast, this was really handy. Also note that, the hotel is in front of California plaza, which has a bigger starbucks and couple of convenience stores.

The concierge was one of the best I have experienced I must say-work till late hours, always resourceful and ready to help. We got some great tips that we could not get before.

You need a car if you come to this hotel-that's why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. It is downtown and at night it seems a bit..dark and lonely..Not that there is anything wrong with the environment, you would still feel awkward walking on the streets at night. The other downside is the parking; you have to pay usd 40 during the week and usd 20 during the weekend even if you stay in the hotel! that's quite steep..however, after spending 2 days without the car, we realized that you actually DO need a car-so get it over with at the airport or something.

If I ever go back to LA, I would definetely stay in this hotel and I guarantee you would enjoy your stay!

We stayed 3 nights at Omni Downtown LA. Hotel and rooms are great. Location so so. Only negative was a rather grumpy and unhelpful concierge.

The hotel is conveniently located to explore the city, certainly not were the actin is but easy access to most attractions.
Cons: pricey extras (parking and breakfast)
Pros: quiet and family friendly
