They all start to look alike after a while. Faceless high-rises with barn-like lobbies, boxy rooms, generic decor. We didn't expect much from the Omni when we stayed there for a recent business trip to hot, hazy Atlanta, where chains reign supreme--but we were pleasantly surprised.
First, a few negatives. The hotel consists of two towers linked by a walkway and it is NOT easy to find your way. The signage is lacking and we found ourselves blundering down corridors and having to ask for help. The bathroom was fine, but I wish more hotels would add counter space or an extra shelf for all the toiletries we all seem to bring along these days, even for an overnight!
The positives: We loved the quasi-indoor, carpeted balcony outside our room. It greatly increased the space, gave us an interesting view of the CNN Center and people coming and going (we squinted to see Anderson Cooper but to no avail), and offered two comfortable wicker chairs and a table. Nice place to sit and read, listen to the echoing "sounds of CNN," have coffee and recuperate from a long day doing business.
Also, the service was excellent. Every hotel staffer we passed smiled and greeted us. One went out of his way to help us find an elevator when we were blundering around the aforementioned corridors. The front desk clerks were well-informed, professional and pleasant. Even the "wake-up call" was a positive experience.
This does not always happen in hotels.
I don't know that we would stay here again. But this was a nice oasis during a busy few days.
