“Great Can-Do Staff!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Here I am at the Omni Hotel listening to my neighboring room sing at the top of his lungs.

OK, it is Los Angeles and perhaps he is practicing his trade or perhaps the walls are just a tad to thin...

Aside from the physical plant, the Omni is a very nice hotel with great staff. The rooms are very nicely appointed with a fresh and hip feel to them. The rates were very reasonable.

When I mentioned that I had a vocal neighbor - the front desk staff immediately offered a discount. Additionally, they were super helpful with all my business needs.

Request an upper floor with a view of California Plaza and you will be able to see far and beyond as well as the cute fire pits below where couples are snuggling with dessert and drinks below...

Join the loyalty club and wifi is free! I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor with a view of California Plaza

We spent one night at this hotel in between touring colleges in Los Angeles and spending a week at a condo in San Diego. We pulled up with our car packed to the hilt with pillows and ice chests and bike racks. We opened the doors and everything fell out. I was so embarrassed to be pulling up to this gorgeous hotel looking like the Beverly Hillbillies, but the valets were gracious and laughed and promised to keep our bikes safe. They were very patient while we stuffed everything back into the car and treated us like royalty. They even upgraded our room for a better view. The rooms were clean and well decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable. We had a late snack at Noe's outside by the fire pit.. The rigatoni was very very good. We had breakfast at The Grand cafe and it was perfect. The valet offered is bottled water and formthe next leg of Would definitely stay here again!

As a co-attendee of the LA Film Fest, it was my job to look for a nice, smoke-free, luxurious feeling (without the expensive price tag) quiet place to rest between very busy days in the Staples Center. Quite happily & maybe a little surprisingly, I found it at this downtown Omni.

Our Room: we asked for & got a charming (with wonderful furnishings & soft goods) quiet room with a nice view of a fountain & the entrance to M.O.C.A (L.A.'s contemporary museum of art) + Disney's wonderfully modern music hall. The only thing I was sad not to see was a free bottle of water (who doesn't need a glass of water @bedtime??) or much coveted coffee maker. Other than that, I was very pleased with our room, even without my much needed cup of gratis java in the am.

Here's a tip: when you leave (in your car) for the day, ask the valet for 2 bottles of cold water (most nicer hotels offer them, but I find you have to ask), put them in a cool place while you're out (you should never drink heated bottled water as the plastic can impart pcb's into the water which has been found to cause cancer. Then take the water to your room upon your return & use in place of the $6.00 bottle of water that we drank because we forgot to pick a bottle up. Oh well, lesson learned!

Breakfast downstairs: was a good old fashioned brunch, the kind that was very popular some time ago. It is hip? No, just your average offerings + an omelet bar which was nice just the same but don't ask for a mocha. Their "mocha" is something like coffee + some foamy milk for $5.00 & very disappointing. Obviously, they don't posses an espresso maker so don't bother asking. Still, our view was a very peaceful, tree lined walkway that leads all the way to the Walt Disney Hall & is a perfect way to walk there (in comfortable heels) & I'd go so far as to say could be even a bit romantic. All in all, I found this Omni was a tranquil little respite from the big bad city, at least on quiet weekends when all the downtown workers are off the clock.

Room Tip: Always check the hotels site for promotional deals first. That said, our corner room was a perfect f...

You get what you expect. Nothing less or nothing more. It is a good hotel, but just that. No spirit, like you may find in other Omni hotels. The bar s in different floor than reception, so you cannot tell which one is the main hall.

This is a very nice and well appointed hotel in downtown Los angels, next to the MOCA museum and a block from the Disney Concert Center...near the metro and with many good restaurants the neighborhood for breakfast, lunch or dinner...but no people on the streets at night or on weekends a little creepy for a New Yorker....

Room Tip: The beds are very high and difficult to get in and out of easily if your are under 5'3"

Very comfortable newly renovated club room. The club itself is not in the league of Hyatt clubs, but as always it is good to have some extra space. The staff were efficient and less money grabbing than at Peninsula.
The pluses are the Omni is relatively quiet and spacious for LA and I like the peacefulness of the place. It's a few steps to the MOMA and the DisneyHall so it's easy to do conference and culture.
Relatively short trip to the LAX. Good town car service. The fine dining restaurant, I've was average. Good laundry service and a very solid business hotel.
While the downtown is being improved and more people are living there than a few years ago it is basically empty in non business hours.

We stayed here in May and had a fabulous time. The location down town is good with easy access to the metro so you can quickly get to the touristy spots. The service is fantastic and we found the concierge especially helpful. The rooms are big, nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and the food is delicious! We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Complimentary sedan is a great idea and make sure you join the Omni loyalty scheme as you can enjoy...
