Hotel's Favorite
I have to give this hotel five stars purely because of the front desk reception. I called to confirm my reservation and realized that I booked it for the nigh before, the front desk staff quickly changed that. When we arrived we were having problems finding parking, the desk staff plus security came out and assisted us in finding street parking. To top it all off, they had a goody bag for the kids. Alton and Marguerite, Thank you for the incredible stay. Omni has won a loyal customer!

NEVER EVER give this deceptive, disgusting excuse for a hotel with “outstanding service” a penny of your money or trust them with any special moments. My fiancé spent 20 mins on the phone with them in August 2020 scheduling our wedding night hotel reservation for November 2020. Not ONCE did they mention they are STILL currently closed. There was no indication online anywhere that they never reopened, or I would’ve never even considered them! My fiancé just today got a call from some random Nebraska call center that our wedding night reservation is cancelled. The hotel couldn’t even be bothered to reach out to us directly, and now apparently on their website it suddenly says they’re closed til Jan., as insane as that is. When my fiancé called them just to make sure this was correct, the lazy, rude excuse of a front desk person transferred him on a loop instead of to the manager that he asked for, so that he ended up right where he started with no answers or explanation whatsoever. This is the customer service you get for a hotel of this reputation?! Who lets you book a wedding night package never even letting on you’re still closed?? When you call for clarity, they just send you on an endless loop of ringing phones? Obviously they couldn’t care less about customer service or screwing anyone over. For their information I was planning on staying there for my wedding night for the last 10 years, but now I never, ever will. AVOID and DO NOT TRUST because you will be purposely deceived and then left hanging. We’ve had better customer service at gas stations.

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful stay. The hotel staff was professional and friendly and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The location is ideal for attending shows at Heinz Hall and within easy walking distance to a selection of great restaurants.

Wonderful stay. I cannot day enough about the people that work there. While waiting in line someone cut in front of the line. We were not happy but the staff gave us a heartfelt apology. They were very professional. Just made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay there again.
