“Lovely spot tucked away from the busyness of Houston”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Had a lovely 5 day stay at this lovely property in order to attend a friend's wedding. On arrival, we were upgraded to a lovely suite for the group rate. So, for our five night stay we had wonderful space to lounge about. Had room service and enjoyed the fine restaurants on the premises. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Valet parking service was prompt and pleasant. The setting for the hotel puts you away from the hubbub of this crowded, noisy, hot and humid city. Yet, it is easy to get to most places in the city since it is placed near the Galleria, near the 610 West Loop and I-10. The only downside is there is not a concierge lounge which we have appreciated in other Omni Hotels.

Room Tip: We were on the Bayou, West Loop side. We would have preferred the inside view over the terrace, poo...

Stayed at the Omni at the beginning and end of our visit to Houston, both times over a weekend. Reception and valet staff are charming and the rooms very comfortable, as are the lounge areas. We found the pool music annoying but as it was Memorial weekend the many youngsters probably enjoyed it. The buffet breakfast is good (great server called Hector). The only disappointment is the bar which is pretty soulless. We would certainly use the Omni next time we are in Houston.

We know that our tablet was left in our hotel room but didn't realize it till we arrived home. Called lost and found and said it was never found. There is a dishonest staff member lurking! Never staying here again and will not recommend to anyone.

Biggest attraction is a nice swimming pool in the city
Lobby interior design is sub-par to Omni. Doesn't greet the guest with what you would expect for an omni experience.
Did not eat at the hotel as the menu didn't entice us and so many awesome restaurants close. Lobby bar is ok. Could use some updating.
Pillows are bad.

This hotel is just perfect. I went to Houston for a wedding and everything about this hotel was great. They have an amazing pool and gorgeous rooms. The small bar has great drinks and the Black Swan nightclub is nice to dance the night away in! The ONE downside that I found was that the breakfast is pretty pricey. I thought it was going to be free when we went down to eat--it was two of us and we ended up paying almost $50!

I was attending a conference and the luncheons were delicious but the service was terrible. I am not sure if they were understaffed or what. The coffee was never refilled, the plates were being cleaned up as the guest speaker was talking. Another day the staff was kicking purses and told the people at the table to move them under the table.
A pretty place but I would not go back for dinner because the service was terrible.

We just got back from staying at the Omni Hotel in Houston. The location was great and the staff was great. They even worried about me running :) My king-size bed was very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel any time.
