Very comfortable newly renovated club room. The club itself is not in the league of Hyatt clubs, but as always it is good to have some extra space. The staff were efficient and less money grabbing than at Peninsula.
The pluses are the Omni is relatively quiet and spacious for LA and I like the peacefulness of the place. It's a few steps to the MOMA and the DisneyHall so it's easy to do conference and culture.
Relatively short trip to the LAX. Good town car service. The fine dining restaurant, I've was average. Good laundry service and a very solid business hotel.
While the downtown is being improved and more people are living there than a few years ago it is basically empty in non business hours.

We stayed here in May and had a fabulous time. The location down town is good with easy access to the metro so you can quickly get to the touristy spots. The service is fantastic and we found the concierge especially helpful. The rooms are big, nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and the food is delicious! We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Complimentary sedan is a great idea and make sure you join the Omni loyalty scheme as you can enjoy...

Bright and relaxing hotel with excellent staff at a very reasonable rate. All the employees were very knowledgable and helpful. Free regular wifi to in the room to Omni members (front desk person signed me up -free and easy).

The lobby ice water cooler with fresh fruit inside was a nice touch. It doesn't add a ton of flavor to the water but it's really attractive and refreshing. (It's free and stocked with cups.)

I hadn't been in downtown L.A. for a long time and was impressed with the area while traveling on business. The hotel is close to the beautiful Disney Concert Hall and adjacent to a lovely plaza area. (I got a nice corner room with a view of the plaza.) Be sure to go on Angels Flight - a charming, 100-year old tram that will take you up and down a steep hill.

There's no rooftop bar but it's just a short walk to the nearby Bonaventure Hotel which does have one.

Don't forget your higher end toiletries like a Gillette razor as the closest Rite Aid-type place is four blocks away in a dirtier section of town. But there is a decent sundry store adjacent to the hotel plaza.

If you're visiting L.A. for the first time, you probably don't want to stay downtown (unless someone else is driving you around) but if you need to stay in the area, this is a great spot.

Take a short cab ride to Japan town if you get a chance. Lots a of great small authentic restaurants.

Would absolutely stay here again when in town for work or pleasure. Conveniently located, easy freeway access. The hotel is beautiful, lovely lobby and general environment. The room was fresh, super well appointed, clean and comfortable in all regards. Staff were uber friendly, helpful and professional. The immediate location allows for pleasant walking near the MOCA , safe, and allows for outdoor exercise. The pool and gym are top notch, excellent equipment and facilties. Loved it here.

4/5 Valet: We pulled up around 11pm Friday night and there was valet there so it's nice that they are fully staff all day and night at valet. We did for the valet $30 each weekend night and $40 for a weekday night. It was steep but better than looking for parking elsewhere. They do get fairly busy during the day so it's best to call down ahead. All the guys were very nice and worked way hard for the guests.

4/5 Lobby: Bright, clean, and elegant lobby. They had beautiful flower arrangements everywhere and fruit infused water for guests.

5/5 Check-In: Easy and prompt check in.

4/5 Elevators: Quick and I think there might even have been a sensor on the bottom floor bc it opened for us automatically.

4/5 Rooms: Large rooms with a great size bathroom. The curtains were nice and heavy to not let in that bright California sun. The beds were very comfortable and appreciative after a long drive and days of sightseeing.

3.5/5 Gym: The gym was nice and clean with just enough equipment. Plenty of towels and water for guests.

3/5 Location: the location is good in the two block radius but anything outside of that gets a bit shady so I wouldn't recommend walking around at night.

Value: Besides the valet, I thought the value for the room was great.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel as part of a Birthday Celebration for a family friend. We are very familiar with Downtown LA Hotels so we thought we knew what we would be expecting. Suprisingly the Omni Hotel exceed all of our expectations. First the value for a room was very reasonable when compared to other Downtown Hotels. Second the Hotel had a small hotel feel yet boasted great ammenities and the service exceeded our experience with other large Hotels in Downtown. Third the restaurants at the hotel had great food and continued the cozy hotel theme. Lastly, the room itself was large and comfortable.

If you want to have a great dinner do check out Noe Restaurant in the third floor. The food is excellent. Service is a bit slow, but if you are not in a hurry things should work out fine for you, however make sure you sit at the patio and ask them to turn on the gas fire in your table. You will have a great night.

Breakfast at the Grand Cafe is pretty good. Like at Noe make sure you ask for patio seating as it is more comfortable than eating inside. The breakfast buffett is a good value and the deserts are excellent. Tip for those who get hungry later - you can take dessert to go, just ask the server for a box to go.

I have stayed at the Omni before, but this trip was the best. I was looking for the gym and pool (I always have the best intentions and keep forgetting to ask when I check in, hmmm) with my friend, and stopped a man in white getting in the elevator to ask. Imagine my surprise when he introduced himself as Chris, the Executive Chef, and he took us to the pool and gym himself! What a class act! And this kind of service trickles down, from Diego at the front desk to the sweet and smiling maids. Even making the reservation with JJ was fun! Couldn't ask for better service or a more convenient location.

Room Tip: I like overlooking the plaza, or the front of the hotel.
