Stayed 2 nights over a weekend in January. The lobby & exterior were beautiful and the staff was super helpful.
The hotel is very conveniently located on the edge of the financial district and about 2 blocks from Chinatown. We walked to the Ferry Building and many other tourist destinations. Also, the hotel gives a free guided walking tour on Saturday mornings.
When we checked in the desk staff offered us maps and some recommendations for what to do in the neighborhood. They were also very helpful and pleasant when I had questions and when I reported that the cordless phone in our room wasn't working. Also there are doormen!
The room (king bed) was nice, not as super-new as the Marriotts we often stay in (because of a corporate travel deal) but very nice, especially the large bathroom with marble sink. The one down side was there was no view from our 4th-floor room, which opened onto some sort of oubliette/internal ventilation shaft between the hotel and the office building on the rest of the block. Also the room was kind of stuffy but we opened the window (it only opens a few inches) and turned off the heating/cooling system (individual thermostat in the room) and that was perfect.
The hotel is part of Historic Hotels of America, and they offer discounts for members, but we got a special weekend rate from Omni that was less. Reasonable price for downtown SF.
There's a fee for wireless internet service, but it's waived if you join the Omni rewards program (which you can do at any time, even after checking in).
Valet parking is only $26 on weekends, which was a nice surprise since I'd heard it was $48 - which is true during the week. We stayed over Friday and Saturday nights.
