This hotel was very cool! The original portion of the building dates back to the late 1800's and is in the French European style. While sitting at the pool I kept expecting to see the Eiffel Tower just past this original section!
Nestled within the many hotels on the Riverwalk, I liked this property better than the others in which I've stayed in the past. The rooms were large with ample space for two roll-away beds if needed. We did, because there were 5 of us. The down side is my husband made this reservation 8 months ago, and we indicated there would be 5 people so we expected two queen beds. The hotel was full when we arrived very late, so we got what was left which was two doubles. We asked for a different room but they were unable to accommodate. Since I travel a lot, it's my belief that when a property asks me how many people will be in a room, they will accommodate accordingly with the proper bed space. We brought in a roll-away but it was still a tight fit for our family comprised of 4 adults and 1 teenager.
Really liked the pool area. Lots of sitting areas either for lounging or eating or simply reading a book. The pool is pretty but rather small. 12-15 people in there and it's crowded.
There is not a gym on this property but the Riverwalk is accessible from the hotel which is a great running/walking work-out.
If you don't valet park, you have to park across the street in a parking garage. It runs about $10 per day. The problem is when you come down the elevator connected to the parking garage, it doesn't exit across from the hotel, but around the corner. This is a heavily populatedtourist area with up to 20,000 people showing up to the Riverwalk on any given day and therefore there are peddlers everywhere. First thing out of the garage my child was asked for money by a peddler. We were disoriented by not seeing the hotel across the street from where we entered the garage.
The restaurant had an amazing breakfast menu with a buffet. Service was excellent. Food was too!
Would I return? If I have to be on the Riverwalk, I will definitely check availability at the Omni first.
