Omni Los Angeles at California Plaza

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We found a good last minute rate offered directly through the hotel. Luxurious accommodations, friendly staff, good food and drink so we are glad we moved here. Room was not spacious likely typical of downtown LA but quality was top notch. My teenage daughter and I had a nice affordable dinner eating off of the extensive bar menu. Be aware there is a $40/night valet only parking during the weekdays.

Room Tip: we asked for a higher and quiet room and they changed us to a corner well away from the elevators. G...

We were so happy we picked this hotel. We were travelling from New Zealand so were asked a few times why we were staying in downtown LA, but why not?

This is a fabulous hotel all round. The service was outstanding! In particular, I would like to acknowledge the concierge staff who were very knowledgable and went the extra mile. The car service is also fantastic. We had to catch up on some laundry and were dropped off and picked up from the laundromat.

The rooms are classy, clean, modern and very comfortable. We had the best sleep during our stay.

The hotel is close to the Staples Centre which worked out well for us as we went to a Lakers game. There's also a range f fast foo in close proximity and a convenience store above the hotel.

Thanks so much for making our stay so wonderful. This was by far the best hotel we stayed at during our holiday in the US.

We are currently staying at this hotel and can't wait to write a review. My husband and I have stayed at really nice hotels around the world and this was the first time we stayed at the Omni. We are very impressed with the quality of service the Omni staff. The valet, the front desk staff, the housekeeping staff, the restaurant staff - all had smiles on their faces and were willing to help and accommodate our needs. Our children were pleased with the cookies and milk that went with the turn down service and the complementary beverage service that arrived in the morning. We requested along with our coffee some hot chocolate for the children and to their delight they included a small bowl of marshmallows for the kids. This hotel is kid friendly especially their room service menu. Our room is spacious and very clean. There is plenty of room for a family of four.
I hope the other Omni hotels have the same quality of service as this hotel because we will be considering the Omni if they have it at our next vacation. And we will stay at this hotel again definitely.

Very nice in all respects. Lovely staff and room. Cannot fault it. We were greeted like friends and given a double room with lovely beds, nice fittings and a good view. Only problem is its seedy location.

The Omni has all the comforts and amenities of a first class hotel, with the bonus of its location at the center of LA's cultural district, just a few blocks from Disney Hall, Mark Taper Forum and other theaters. And the breakfast room overlooks the courtyard of the Museum of Contemporary Art. We loved staying there, and thought our room rate was very reasonable for such a nice hotel in a prime location.

This hotel is not new, having undergone changes in ownership over the years, but shows few signs of age; indeed, it was built when expensive details were the norm in prestige properties. Built before the current boom, it benefits from its now advantageous site on Grand Ave., a main artery downtown, and sits across the street from Disney Concert Hall and the Broad Art Museum (under construction), next door to the Museum of Contemporary Art , and a couple of doors from the Colburn School of performing arts. During the day a city shuttle bus runs past the rear entrance on Grand Ave. connecting various interesting sites.
Staff have been coached in correct behavior and it shows. Reception very cordial, the large corner room on the 7th floor, spruce and sparkling clean. Marble bathroom very large with separate spaces for tub and shower. All the expected amenities, though a grab bar in the shower would be a useful addition. A rare lapse.
There is a town car available for pickup and drop-off on a space available basis. This is a real plus in a city where the streets tend to be empty and a bit forbidding after nightfall. The place might be called homey in a sophisticated way, with thoughtful protocols in place: as a solo woman traveler I was installed in a room only steps from the elevators - no need to wander in the corridors. Stopping by the bar after a performance at the concert hall, I found it appropriate for even a solo traveler. Friendly place, highly recommended.

Room Tip: The hotel is on California Plaza - there are buildings all around but they do not obstruct the view...

What an amazing hotel. Service was exceptional, decor and accomodations were solid and our room had an amazing view. Complimentary coffee and pant-pressing service for Omni members. Small but well appointed fitness center. This is the place to stay in the financial district. I would return in a heartbeat. Parking costs a lot and we chose to park offsite for a bit cheaper. Lovely stay.
