“Great location and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We had a room on the 17th floor looking down on Washington Sq, Russia Hill and the coast. Very very pleased. Service was impeccable and friendly. Room staff amazing too. Great location Central to everything we needed and we walked everywhere. Alcatraz pier 33, Union Sq, little Italy, Golden Gate Park. Perfect city stay.

My wife and I stayed at the Omni San Francisco Hotel during our recent vacation. The hotel was rated as one of the very top hotels in SF on Tripadvisor, which heavily influenced our decision and did cause us to have very high expectations. The hotel is indeed very nice and each member of the staff we engaged were very nice as well. The rooms were clean and nice, but nothing special and pretty basic. The location during week is great, as the area around the hotel is lively and it is a short walk to the "Ferry Building" or to catch a cable car. However, once the weekend arrived the area around the hotel became a ghost town with most restaurants and other establishments being closed for the weekend. It made it somewhat inconvenient as you would have to travel to other parts of the city for everything. I would highly recommend this hotel for business travelers as it does have the perfect location and is nice. However, if you are a family or couple on vacation it might not be the best location for the weekend. Overall, our stay was nice and we liked the hotel, but I guess we expected more from it being that it was a top 5 rated hotel on Tripadvisor.

Whether it be in San Diego, Atlanta, Chicago, or Carlsbad, the Omni brand is guaranteed!! The brand is solid and I've never been disappointed!! You would think with a brand so well known and people checking in and out, you would be just another faceless guest, right? Not at the Omni!! The service is on point! Stellar!!! You are appreciated as a guest and you can feel the concern to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one!!
I love the location it's close to the business/convention center and the Gaslight area...There are great eateries within walking distance and Petco park is right across the street!! It's all right there at your finger tips!! The Absolute Best in their class!!!

We elected to stay the night to make for a smoother graduation morning. We signed up for the romance package. Chocolate, a rose, bottle of bubbly, turn down service, $100 credit for food(which we used at Bob's)- all really made us feel special. Our top-floor room had a great view as well. Romance? Check!

Very comfortable and luxurious hotel right on the cable car line. Great for business, but you won't find many places open after 6:00 p.m. Super comfortable beds. Sign up for frequent guest plan to avoid paying for wi-fi. Dinner at Bob's Bar is a nice way to avoid in-room dining.

I must say the hotel staff is excellent and very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was fair too middling (the french toast was awful and uncooked in the middle). The room for the money was not worth it. I was very disappointed. If I am going to spend that much money I should have gone to the St. Francis Weston. The staff deserve a better hotel. Location is excellent.

As a meeting planner, i can be pretty picky. From the doormen, front desk, to housekeeping, everyone is so pleasant. The Concierge/Front desk/Doormen offer lots of great tips/maps for site seeing. the hotel is beautiful and more in the financial district. the cable car runs rights in front of the hotel and the BART isn't too far of a walk. Very convenient. The walk to the waterfront where the Ferry Building is about a 10 min walk.
Beautiful rooms.

HIGHLY recommend. would go back in a heartbeat

Room Tip: they are surrounded by other buildings, so the views aren't the best, but not horrible!
