We stayed at the Omni for a wedding weekend. The hotel is centrally located in downtown Richmond. Its a very quick and easy walk to the action down on 17th street. The 17th Street Farmers Market is great and the restaurants and bars that surround were really wonderful too.
The Omni staff were amazing and helpful. Espcially, Cherita who kindly chatted with us in the lobby during Champagne Happy Hour on Friday afternoon. Yes, you read that corectly the hotel hosts a Champagne Happy Hour every friday afternoon. We had a ball. There is a Starbucks and an Italian restaurant in the lobby as well, if Champagne isnt your style. My friends and I frequented the pool and sun deck on Saturday all day. The sun deck was outfitted very simply, but it did the job.
My only criticisms are that our room smelled moldy because the bathroom has no fan or ventilation. The shower is steamy that the bathroom gets very wet. Without proper ventilation the room gets a moldy smell. Also, the cleaning staff did not clean our room on Saturday. We had seen them in the hall, but they skipped our room. We had to call down stairs and ask to have housekeeping come up. It was annoying, but housekeeping did eventually come and everything was fine.
In conclusion, if you are headed to the Richmond area and you need a standard hotel with a great location I would highly suggest The Omni its great.
