“great hotel and incredible service”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

We stayed at the Omni Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary and to see the Chinese New Year's Parade. The location was perfect for walking to Chinatown and North Beach. Our room was spacious and so comfortable; very quiet too. We were pleasantly surprised when the staff delivered 6 chocolate covered strawberries and a large bottle of champagne to help us celebrate our anniversary. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend a visit to the Omni.

I found this hotel via Hotwire.com. It was discounted as a 4-Star and if anything, it was a five star. It was impossible to find any dirt...ANYWHERE and I looked. The rooms were perfect, the staff helpful and to be so close to the financial center, B O A Building, Transamerica Building and so many great restaurants not to mention the nearby cable cars...well, try it. Remember, San Franciscans try to ignore the fare collector on the cable cars-locals believe tourists should pay. Sometimes they get away with it but it is fun to watch them hide from the cable car operator.

Room Tip: Higher the better

We stayed at the Omni San Francisco the weekend of February 11-13. It lived up to the high Tripadvisor ratings that it has received. It's an easy (flat, not hilly) four-block walk from BART'S Montgomery Street stop. The hotel is in a converted bank building that has been retrofitted nicely. The reception-lobby areas fit the vintage of the building which appears to have been built in the 1920s. Bob's Steak House is the hotel's restaurant and while that means that food there is pricey, it's high quality. Bob's also serves somewhat less expensive fare in the Bar which is a nice space.

The rooms are nicely furnished in an elegant style that fits the hotel's architectural heritage. The bathrooms are marble and elegant and very well lighted.

The only drawback we found was that our low-floor room fronting on California Street (which was nice for viewing the cable cars and the Bank of America Plaza across the street) was noisier than we would have expected a retrofitted room to have been. More sound insulation should have been included in the building's rehabilitation. If you want a quieter experience, you should probably request a higher floor or one off California Street. We are glad we joined Omni's Select Guest program because it provided some welcome amenities.

Room Tip: Higher floor or off California Street

Stayed here on the spur of the moment due to a funeral. Huge rooms and bath. Great welcome, great valet (taught me how to turn off and start new Volvo S80!). Great access to restaurants across street, wharf and minutes from Union Square. Their breakfast was one of the best I have ever eaten. Would stay again for leisure.
