“A place to call home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

As soon as I entered this hotel I knew I was home. The friendliness of staff, door man, bell man front desk & those who were constantly cleaning the hotel made me feel special. They would stop to acknowledge my presence & greet me every day. The accommodations & the atmosphere was delightful. Even the little things, having water available was a special touch.

The thing I liked most about Omni is that it is downtown, very close to a lot of great attractions, but it is located on a very walkable, quiet, tree-lined street (Olive St.). The neighborhood is safe and walkable at night. I wouldn't venture more than a few blocks however. LA Live is about a mile away, and there is a car service (for tips) that will take you within 3 miles of the hotel. Robin, my driver, was very helpful and courteous.

Check in was a breeze and took about 2 minutes. The staff was friendly. I got a room on the 6th floor, which didn't have much of a view, but the room was huge! And clean. The decor looks recently updated, maybe in the past 5 years.

I did not use any of the amenities like the pool or restaurant. But the beds were very comfortable and there was a small sitting area with a foot stool and a desk.

There is a plaza adjacent to the hotel with several restaurants including a Starbucks if you don't want the hotel breakfast, which I hear is very good, just didn't want to pay the price for it.

One concern was parking, because the hotel offers $40/night valet parking with in/out privileges. This price is comparable with other big cities (NYC & Chicago, e.g.), but I didn't want to pay it, and the tips associated, and wait for them to get my car every time I wanted to run out. So, if you find a meter on Olive Street (and I did every time) it is free from 8p.m. to 8a.m. So then I just got up at 7:45 and fed the meter until I was ready to leave for the day. And then I was usually gone until past 8p.m.

No problems really. So, stay here!

I live in Downtown LA and chose to do a staycation at the Omni. Great experience, including the first night in when we had an earthquake. The staff responded very well and kept all things in order, despite the elevators being shut down. Loved the brunch. Staff is great!

Service was great! Valet were courteous and prompt. However we wanted a king room but they were sold out. Watch out for those adjoining room doors if you have kids. Doors are heavy and no door stopper. Very clean and spacious room especially the bathroom. Free beverage delivered to your door in the morning and prompt too. Parking is expensive but there are nearby lots around if you do not want to pay $40 a night. It does get very quiet at night. Parking attendants were very attentive and courteous. Front desk were helpful. Had our reservations ready before we even arrived.

I was very dissappointed to arrive and find the pool was unavailable - repairs were underway the previous week. I would have appreciated knowing this so I could choose to rebook at another hotel. The hotel had arranged for us to swim at another hotel, but this was not very convenient. Overall the room was excellent and the hotel staff friendly and helpful.

We understand your disappointment with the pool, and appreciate your understanding as we tried to get it open as soon as we possibly could. We hope that you will have the opportunity to enjoy the pool during your next visit.

The service at this hotel is exceptional. All the staff was friendly and willing to help when needed. The hotel was beautiful and clean. Restaurants were within walking distance and easily accessible. The lounge and outside viewing area was beautiful. We stayed with children and the hotel was very friendly and fun with them.
