“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed at the Omni Los Angeles as part of our honeymoon in June 2012. This Hotel is just beautiful. The entrance is amazing and everything is so clean and tidy. We stayed in a Deluxe Room which really nice and modern. It was also very clean and tidy and a really good size. The bed as really comfy.

We had breakfast a couple of times at the Grand Cafe which was really nice with really good service.

Very handy to Downtown Los Angeles and the metro station for travel out to Beverly Hills/ Universal Studios / Walk of Fame etc, etc.
Also very close to one of the stops for the Hop on Hop Off Bus tour which took us around the rest of LA which was awesome.

Would definitly consider staying here again as it is such a beautiful hotel.

I said here with my partner for a conference followed by a holiday.

Positives:
Central location <5 mins from Pershing Square metro stop.
Receptive staff.
Fresh fruit at reception.
Large rooms.

Negative:
Poor lighting in room.
Pool is on the 4th floor surrounded by buildings and so does not get a long of direct sunlight.

Stayed here for 1 night following a performance at the Disney Concert Hall. I requested a high level floor with view of the concert hall and got it..also got a view of the Hollywood sign in the distant hills. Upon check-in we were greeted with cookies and milk at our door as a welcome snack. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the shower head was heavenly! The outside windows were a bit dirty but we saw window washers when we ventured outside (we were informed to keep our curtains drawn for privacy as window washing was taking place that week). It is ideally located to the Disney Concert Hall (a short 5 minute walk), a Starbucks and a great French Bistro (Botegga Louie is about a 10 minute walk). We were 3 women and did not feel unsafe at all walking in this area. Valet brought us cold bottled water when we were leaving.

We are so delighted to hear you and your friends enjoyed your visit with us, and to the Disney Concert Hall. Our hotel does offer complimentary town car service on availability, and would be more than willing to take you within a 3-mile radius of the hotel for dining or shopping trips. We hope you will return and take advantage of that benefit offered to all our guests.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 night before I was due to return to Manchester from LAX. The hotel is conveniently located in Downtown LA and is within walking distance of the restaurants and bars.

The one thing that stood out for us was the Breakfast Buffet in the hotel that we had on the Saturday morning. The food was excellent quality for a buffet and the service was exceptional.

Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of staying in here.

The last two reviews cover most of the major points.
The hotel is well located and the rooms and facilities are first class. The staff go above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay a success. We had a couple of trivial problems in the room and they were mortified. They more than compensated for the "minor " inconvenience.
The hotel is two blocks from Pershing Metro Station. This connects Union Station, the transport hub of the city, to Hollywood. Please allow a bit of time when using for the first time. The ticketing system requires a Phd in clairvoyance and there are no staff to help. We were helped by friendly locals.

We had breakfast in the hotel. It was first class and substantial but not cheap. If you are not so hungry, try the Starbucks style cafe next to the restaurant.

If the weather is nice consider breakfasting on the Plaza next door. Plenty of seating in pleasant surroundings and several cafes. You can even purchase breakfast from the local convenience store to eat there. This opens 7am to 10pm and sells just about everything including reasonably priced wine and beer.

Also on the Plaza is the Blue Cow Bar and Kitchen. The staff here are of the same high standard as at the Hotel. It has alfresco and indoor (if somewhat noisy dining.)
This bar caters mainly for the local Banking fraternity and the overall prices are high average for the city.
From 4.30 to 6.30, Monday to Friday it does good Pub Grub and beverages at excellent prices.

Stayed here for 4 nights and were pleased with our stay here. Location is excellent as it's literally a 3 minute walk to the underground/subway amd is on the 'red line', which has all the stops for tourist attractions (including universal studios). 5 dollars for a card you can use all day on bothe the subway and buses (only time we used the bus was to get to Weho and it was very easy).
Neighbourhood did not seem 'seedy' as mentioned by others, and as 2 girls we felt perfectly safe walking to local restaurants and shops (of which there are plenty cool places if you go towards Chinatown and Koreatown).
Room was massive and immaculate. Bed big and very comfy. Bathroom big with good shower. Swimming pool was free to use and also very clean.
There is a free car service within 3 miles of the hotel but we only used it once to go to the fashion district....but there if you need it.
Can't comment on food as we did eat at Omni.
Staff professional and polite.....appears to be a hotel that caters to buisness people more than tourist but it was perfect for us and would highly recommend it as a hotel to tourists.

Room Tip: We were on floor 14, on a corner room overlooking the pool and it was fantastic
