“On-site business event visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Attended for on-site company event so did not directly pay for room & cannot comment re value. Overall the experience was positive with very friendly and professional staff. The rooms were clean and the bar/restaurant seemed busy for a Friday night in a city with so many restaurants etc such as San Francisco. I would stay there on a personal trip depending on the price. Another attendee said she had a very bad night due to noise from the street & her room was on a lower level at the front so I would ask for a room higher up and at the back of the hotel such as the one I had.

Room Tip: Higher floor &/or not on the street side of the hotel.

Very friendly service. I ordered items from amazon (since I am from outside the US) and the hotel kept my packages for me WITHOUT additional charges. Convenient location to Moscone convention center and Union Square. Free wifi was included. Rooms were nice, clean and spacious.

Stayed here for our annual Christmas overnight and couldn't of been more pleased. The front desk staff were friendly and accommodating, the lobby had a beautiful Christmas tree, and our rooms were clean and quiet. This hotel is located a few blocks away from Union Square but it was easy to walk to Union Square and beyond, even in the rain! We were 12 people and the bar full, so the staff set up a nice table for us to have cocktails in the lobby...very nice! The restaurant on site served a delicious but expensive breakfast....I would eat there again, regardless of price, it was that good.

This is where you want to stay while visiting San Francisco! The moment we entered, the doorman here immediated befriended my son and set him up with a backpack, with a water cantina, coloring book, crayons and lots of small toys for walking the city. Afternoons, they delivered milk and cookies, my son felt so special! Rooms are great and comfortable, but knowing that the my child wants to live here, tells me that it was a great choice!

Room Tip: A couple of blocks from Chinatown. Ask for their Mercedes Benz to get to the airport!

The Omni location is great, a short walk to China town and Union Square, California trolley line is right outside the front door too. Friendly staff. Bobs Steak & Chop House restaurant was fantastic for breakfast and lunch.

In town for a long weekend (Friday to Monday) to explore and check out possible colleges for high schooler; Omni's staff could not be friendlier, from gracious greeting at check in, to arranging dinner reservations.
The Omni location is great, a short walk to China town and Union Square, California trolley line is right outside the front door too!
Rooms are elegantly comfortable, and the in house Bobs Steak & Chop House restaurant was fantastic for breakfast -- prime steak and eggs delicious!
Only downside we found is parking is problematic; on weekend took advantage of free on street parking, yet not possible during the week and Valet is $50+ a day

Room Tip: High Floors have better views and less street noise To those who want to enjoy FREE WIFI (saving $1...

Great hotel with good location. We've stayed in SF many many times. Usually on Nob Hill. After staying at the Omni, we'll return on our next visit. The hotel is centrally located to all the sights, Chinatown, Ferry Building, Union Square and Convention Center. It's in the heart of the Financial district. The staff could not have been friendlier from the doormen to the maids. Our room had everything you would expect in a 4 star hotel.

We booked using Priceline "Name your own price" so I cannot compare value to their regular rates. But it was definitely a hotel we will return to on our next visit. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Our room was actually the closest to the elevators on our floor, yet we never heard any noise from o...
