We visit Houston to see our daughter frequently and we always stay here. The hotel is an oasis of quiet and nature in the middle of the busiest part of town. Our room overlooks memorial park. the service is great and the room is dark, cool and comfortable. We invariably sleep well. Try it.

My first visit to an Omni property.....this was a TA induced stay based on reviews as I am a Marriott die hard usually.
Location is pretty peaceful also.
I have to say from start to finish our stay was excellent.
Great service from the staff.....car valet gave me all the parking options when we pulled up.....John gave us a great run through of our room facilities while bringing in our luggage.....Eddie looked after us at breakfast.....just very very good.
The hotel has obviously had some updating recently as.....decoration...floor coverings etc and all nicely done.
Room was a good size..really nice size bathroom also.....beds were great....slept like a log.
Pool area is nice also.
There is a hotel car that will take to Galleria shopping etc if required.
If this hotel is in the vicinity of where your looking to stay....would recommend consideration.

Room Tip: Join ...select guest ....some nice touches...

We enjoying hearing any excellent review of the Omni Houston Hotel, but when we can swing a Marriott die hard that is an added bonus! We appreciate you giving us a chance to make you an Omni fan, and hope that whenever you travel you can experience the service and accommodations of an Omni Hotel in Houston or any other city. Thank you and safe travels!

The rooms at the Omni were beautiful, spacious and comfy. The parking, however, left a great deal to be desired. Free parking was completely disconnected from the hotel, so if you need to drive your car frequently to and from the hotel, be prepared for a hike. And take an umbrella in case it rains as there is no elevator or covered walking from the garage. It's like you're being punished if you choose free parking over valet.

Great location for a business meeting in the Galleria area in Houston. Proximity to many things, including Memorial Park for a run, works perfectly. Very nice property and amenities.

Our room was well appointed with two beds, modern furnishings and comfortable amenities. The bathroom was a little small and the lighting in it a little on the dark side, but that was not something that affected our stay. What was truly amazing was the lobby and grounds of the hotel. Intelligently and artfully designed it was a joy to discover all its lounge alcoves and nooks. The pools were beautiful. The cherry on top and the most unexpected thing was the quality and deliciousness of the food service we ordered while in our room. Really outstanding and tasty. The hotel staff, desk folk and concierge were all extremely nice. Our stay at the Omni Houston was quite a joy.

No working wifi in the room nor was service available to fix it. Room was OK, but not great. Down comforters in Houston are a little excessive and bad for allergies. Feather free rooms would be a good option to offer, but no deal here. Won't be back.

Beautiful hotel on lush grounds in the middle of the Galleria shopping district. Food, fun and just sightseeing all within easy reach.
The hotel was originally a Four Seasons,but has been an Omni formany years now. The management is superb, attending to every request quickly and efficiently. The pool area is great for sunning or just sitting in the shade sipping a cold beverage.
Hotel also has a fabulous spa, part of the Mokara chain. Indulgent pleasure!
Breakfast buffet is deliciously affordable.
