“Magnificent Everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

The location of the Omni Hotel in San Diego is convenient all around. It was a short taxi ride from the airport and at the entry to the Gas Lamp district, where some of the best night life can be found. It is also connected to Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. The views from the hotel rooms are of the downtown area, the bay or both. Room prices are reasonable for the quality. Five Stars!

The staff is soooo helpful and friendly and the accomodations and services were excellent. I will stay here again if I return to San Diego. Hotel is directly across from convention center and 2 blocks from major trolly/bus routes.

The Omni is right on the edge of the Gaslamp Quarter and nearly attached to Petco Park -- great for baseball and exploring the Quarter as well as the Marina. Getting in to a Padres game is the easiest experience you will ever have -- walk across the bridge and you're in. No lineups. Join the Loyalty program for free Wifi and morning beverage service -- staff didn't point this out until our 2nd last night but it's a huge advantage. The pool is nice, (could use a few more trees or greenery) but do not expect food or drink service. We were there during a heat wave (between 87-94 each day) and there was never any staff to be found. The beds, linens and towels are premium quality, which was much appreciated. Our room (King bed) was a reasonable size but had a view of a parking garage, so consider paying more for a better view. I would have preferred a mini-fridge over a mini-bar (*hint*). I can't say enough about the front desk, concierge and door staff -- they were welcoming and helpful. We felt appreciated. Not so in McCormick and Schmick restaurant. The restaurant was so dark, we weren't sure they were even open at 9:30 pm. They were, and so we had a small meal post-ballgame and the staffing was bizarre to say the least. The bar waitress was taking restaurant orders in what appeared to be a cheerleader's outfit. The wait staff occasionally delivered food but mostly carried out orders given by whom I assume was the dining room manager. He, in his turn, was dancing attendance on certain athletes who were staying at the hotel. We might have been chopped liver once they showed up. It took fifteen minutes to have the dishes cleared away and another ten to get the bill. Then my husband had to go looking for a pen to sign it. I doubt anyone noticed us leaving. Lesson learned: do not eat here after ballgames unless you are on the team. This restaurant is pricey, so we breakfasted a short walk up 6th at The Broken Yolk. It was terrific.

I chose this location because of its vicinity to the gaslamp district and the main transportation lines. (World class transit system in San Diego, btw!) I was hoping for an upscale hotel for a reasonable price, and I was not disappointed. The staff is quite friendly. The lobby and pool are chic and beautiful.

The room disappointed me somewhat. The bed was not very comfortable, and there was little storage space for clothes (think- three drawers and a small closet). The design was modern and sleek, but I expected a bit more flair.

I joined the omni loyalty program, and was pleasantly surprised that they offered free wi-fi to members as well as complimentary morning beverages. IMHO, these should be standard for all guests. The coffee was very good, however!!! Best ever, according to my husband.

If you are a night-clubbing baseball fan, this would be a great choice.

My wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary in San Diego and truly enjoyed the Omni Hotel! From the champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to the friendly and helpful staff, we will look back on this weekend very happily. Thank you to the staff and the Omni!

The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Very helpful, polite, and customer oriented. Facilities are beautiful, great gym facilities, but.... Vehicle parking is not included in the price of the room, and the bathroom in the room is not completely private.

Dear Richard M..
Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. I was pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay and our terrific staff. I also appreciate your concerns about the bathroom design and parking. I might mention there is a Self Parking garage directly across the street that is run by the City.....it's an option to our Valet parking service.
We appreciate your business and thank you for staying with us,
