“This is a great hotel in a great location! I fell in love with New Haven all over again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I live near New Haven but my BFF and I were heading into New Haven for a class reunion and didnt want to have a cocktail (or four) and worry about driving, So we decided to stay overnight and make a quick girls getaway out of it. We LOVED this hotel, I was so pleasantly suprised by the exceptional service and friendliness of all staff that we came in contact with. The were WONDERFUL!! We pulled up to valet the car (for an extra $5 its worth it) in her old beat up honda and joked with the staff about being very careful with it, they made us feel like we were driving a Bentley! Front desk gal was a peach, and gave us complimentary breakfast buffet! We had opted to upgrade to a corner room for a $30 fee, and received a lovely sunny room with a lovely view! The Bed, ohhhh the bed, was to DIE for! Room very clean, fresh, with nice toiletries and fluffy towels and bathrobes. We bellyed up to the Davenport bar on the 19th floor for a drink before heading out. Had an outstanding cosmo (some places can really mess up that drink!) from a very friendly bartender. The views are so pretty up there! The gym was very nice. The lobby is very classic with dark wood, chess tables, plenty of cozy places to sit. The little market was very nice. I slept like a baby, and the next day, the breakfast buffet was wonderful!! Everything was fresh, clean, and replaced/refreshed non stop. YUM!!! Waitstaff was attentive and a gentleman, who I assume was the restaurant manager even came out to make sure we were happy. What service! Our checkout was a breeze and our "limo" (aka the old Honda) was retrieved quickly but a very nice group of men!! I forget how nice New Haven can be, this hotel is in the best location and walking distance to many excellent restaurants, pubs, in the middle of Yale action and short walk to the hospital. Stay here!! Its awesome!!

Room Tip: A higher floor will have better views. I was in room 1213, a wonderful corner room.

I live two towns away from the Omni in New Haven, Ct. I hadn't seen my girlfriend in some time and we decided to go out on a Saturday. What to do! I wanted to make the evening special so I made a reservation at the Omni in downtown New Haven, I asked for a corner room with a nice view and recieved just that. The room was spacious clean and quite comfortable. Now the hidden secret, they have a resturant and cocktail lounge on the top floor (19th) I've lived in the area for the past 30 years and never ever thought of going there. Well we checked in had a drink in the room and off we went upstairs for dinner. The food was excellent, I had the sea bass she had the filet, both cooked to our liking, plus the view was awesome, we both felt like we were on vacation anywhere but in New Haven, it was that nice, wine list was incredible and the staff was very attentive. I highly recommend this hotel if you are traveling on business or pleasure, btw have breakfast served in your room to make the stay complete. It reunited me with someone very special and a week I won't soon forget. Thank you Omni Hotel

Room Tip: Corner rooms are great, suites I'm sure are better, but was very satisfied with the corner room

Omni Hotel was in a great location with many shops and restaurants in walking distance. Omni staff was great and helpful. Only bad thing I would say would be we found expired food in the refrigerator snack bar. We called and they took it off our bill. I would recommend to anyone.

Unfortunately there are not too many options in New Haven for higher end hotels, so the Omni is one of very few options in the center of town. I have stayed here several times and found a large difference in the experience based on the room. The last stay in a corner room was very nice, the bathroom appears to have been slightly updated and the normally noisy heater / air conditioner was not as bad as in the others, and the room was larger. Which is to say that in the other rooms, the rooms were small, bathroom in need of renovation and so forth.

They seem to be doing some work on the building renovating the restaurant / retail space on the street level and there may be some good options moving in, but for now it is mostly space available signs, but no matter because as they say location, location, location - and this hotel has it. There are many small and good restaurants near by with options that will meet any need you have within easy walking distance.

Because there are not that many options in the center of New Haven I have found that the hotel is completely booked when there are any University events, so if you are coming for one you really need to book early. It isn't a great hotel, that is partially due to the aging building but the staff is pleasant enough in a very busy place, and did I mention location, location, location?

Room Tip: Corner rooms may be an upgrade but worth it.

This hotel is in the best location in New Haven. It is on the older side but the updates are modern looking. We ate breakfast in the restaurant in the 19th floor and it was very nice with a great view. When in the area I will be sure to stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Omni New Haven Hotel during the New Haven Open. The room was clean and comfortable and service was fine. My only complaint would be that the late night band music across the street was quite loud. My husband enjoyed the pizza and beer at the Kitchen ZINC artisan pizza and bar, the sangria was not so good ( just a couple blocks away). Our whole family really enjoyed the Geronimo Tequila Bar and Southwest grill also just a couple blocks away.

Room Tip: Stay away from the side facing the street where the local music is played.

I wanted a place close to City Hall for our civil marriage on New Years Eve. The Onmi was closest, and within a short walk from other places to eat, etc. I have traveled a lot, coast to coast by car even, and this hotel was on par with a good Holiday Inn, with a better looking lobby.

We got a nice web deal for about $130 a night and I feel it was a good price.

When Laura at the desk learned we were there for marriage, she congratulated us and sent up some complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries! Gratefully Accepted. Actually all hotel staff was were gracious and kind.

The only negative would be that their was a dog that barked quite a bit in the morning at 8:30 am. Though we were up and heading out by then, it may have woken others on the 8th floor.

Room Tip: I have heard the higher floors are better when wanting to avoid city noise. We were on the 8th floor...
