First off, don't let OMNI BLVD fool you. This hotel is NOT in any way affiliated with the OMNI. There is a hip hop club right off the main entrance, so in order to register you had to walk through the drunks that were fighting (yes, there were 2 cop cars there on 13 July 2014).. It is also LOUD LOUD LOUD. If it is FREAKNIK 2014 you are looking for, this is your place. There is no continental breakfast, and the "COFFEE" consists of one pot that was always empty.
The room was average at best. Once I got past the dental floss left on the sink and the coffee filter and grounds left in the pot, I was able to notice that the sheets were bright white and clean.
I would NEVER go here again as it was merely average. For the price I paid, it was below average. I would imagine that a ton of the reviews are either paid sponsors, or employees..
