“Family Vacation in Chicago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Omni was great. The staff were amazing--friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and reliable. The room was clean and had all the amenities we needed. It was nice to have access to a pool in a downtown hotel--many we looked at didn't. Water pressure was actually too hard, but no other complaints!

This is a fabulous hotel. The staff is expert. The location is convenient to everything downtown! The rooms are great and the view I had was of the Trump Bldg. Awesome! Highly recommended!!! If you are planning a trip to Chicago, this is a great, friendly place.

Very friendly staff, enjoyed our stay, beds comfortable. Good location, close to American Girl Doll place. They are very family friendly. Would stay here again. Only problem we had was working the shower, the pressure was slow and water temperature kept changing.

This hotel is in a great location. But so are many other hotels... Marriott, Peninsula etc. The rooms are large for a major US city with a "sitting room" area and separate bedroom area, separated by a door. The sitting room consists of 2 armchairs and a business desk and chair.The rooms are very clean and the bed is perfect. The linens and bathroom are up to 4 star standards with bath salts for the bath and nice toiletries including a mouthwash. The front desk staff are very polite and work hard to make your stay enjoyable. The room maids are very nice and work very hard.
Unfortunately there are a few little issues... the pool area on the 4th floor which I visited was not what I expected from the website photograph. The pool room is quite small and was quite humid. The area around the pool was soaking wet and someone (I don't know who) had placed towels on the tiles from the changing area where you enter the pool to the far side of the pool. I can only guess that perhaps they slipped??? and were saving other guests from the same fate? I can not be sure... but the hotel should have someone who checks the area regularly and thus to remove the towels and keep the pool side tiles dry.
The second issue I have is the turn-down service. This involves turning down the bed and turning off all lights except for one bedside light. On arrival night you also get 2 complimentary bottles of water but ONLY the first night. This is not repeated. There is no chocolate on the pillow. There is no closing of curtains. There is no mood TV channel. Again only on the first night did they have mood TV and remove the old towels from the bathroom floor!
The third issue I have is that the parking, while valet only, is not actually operated by the hotel. It is operated by another company. It is $63 approx. per 24hrs with multiple in-and-out. Again the issue is that the charge for 24hrs is from 5pm regardless of when you check into the hotel. In other words you will be charged a "new" 24 hr $60+ dollars after 5pm on the last day even if you checked in at 9pm and you THINK your 24 hours ends at 9pm! So be warned. I feel this should be explained on their web site.
I think for the price approx. $270/ night with so much competition in the area they could tweak things a little better to position themselves more favorably in the market. I will not stay here again.

The location was beyond amazing. With a few steps you are right on Michigan Ave, with ALL the shopping within walking distance. The BEST location, clean and tidy rooms, great balcony/ledge in fitness center, but overall EXCELLENT location!

The stay was wonderful and fabulous! The room was impeccably clean, the layout was really neat, with the bedroom closed off from the washroom and living room by doors. The staff were all wonderful, and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. The Omni was head and shoulders above other similarly-priced hotels in which we have stayed in downtown Chicago. We would most certainly highly consider the Omni on our next trip! :)

This hotel was conveniently located just off the magnificent mile within walking distance of several restaurants. The staff was very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. It was well worth it.
