Centuries shift when you step into these Financial District digs. The 1926 former bank building channels Renaissance Florence, blending Italian marble floors and crystal chandeliers with mahogany-paneled walls and a grand iron and marble staircase. The hotel’s aspiration to Old World elegance is also evident in the polite, personalized service of everybody from the concierges to the housekeeping staff. A member of the team is seemingly around every corner making sure your every expectation is met — and exceeded.
Bed & Bath
The 362 guestrooms are open and airy, especially by San Francisco standards, with nine-foot ceilings and large windows for plenty of natural light. The color palette incorporates apricot, terra-cotta and gold hues with baroque-inspired wallpaper, dark wood antique furniture and marble bathrooms.
Fortunately, there’s nothing Old World about the hotel’s requisite amenities: The 1,500-square-foot fitness center has all the latest equipment, and the 24-hour business center and meeting facilities are wired for the demands of 21st century business. The on-site restaurant is an outpost of the Dallas-based Bob’s Steak & Chop House delivering great cocktails, an extensive wine list and large cuts of the finest prime steaks in an elegant setting overlooking the city.
How to Get There
On the 17th floor I heard ZERO noise from the street.
Staff very professional and welcoming. The type of hotel where every staff member greets you pleasantly when you're walking down the hall. Evening doorman was so kind when I arrived and tripped over my shoelaces- went above and beyond!
Not sure why people say the decor is dated; it's standard/nice, immaculate, marble bathroom, SUPER comfortable bed. Gym was fine, a little small, but with a seemingly full time attendant keeping it up, they had towels in a little fridge, etc. The hotel somehow knew it was my birthday when I was there and I walked into my room to find a mini bottle of wine and a piece of cake with Happy Birthday (My name) written on it! LOVELY. Oh and the maid FOLDED ALL MY CLOTHES that were left out.
Excellent hotel. Staff is super friendly. Location is great. Would give 4.5 stars if I could. The only slight drawback is the rooms are a bit tired. It needs a bit of a refresh. Hotel is super clean and the bed is comfortable. Overall a good choice!
My wife and I have now stayed three times at the Omni for weekend get-aways. Each time we were greeted as long-lost friends by the amazing warm and competent staff, including the 24 hour doorman. The property is in terrific shape - the lobby is spectacular and always has a magnifcent fresh bouquet of flowers to greet you. The rooms are generous and well laid out. We are particularly enamored with the courtyard-facing rooms, as they are away from the street noise and are DEADLY quiet, which we love. This last trip we tried a delicious breakfast in bed - which was delivered quickly and presented beautifully. There is 24 hour room service - a great plus. The shower is wonderfully luxurious, which we both enjoy. And the beds and pillows are to die-for!
If you join the no-charge Omni Club (I don't remember the actual name) there are many benefits including free wi-fi, instant check-in and other goodies.
While the location is a bit off the beaten track (its in the middle of the financial district) - everything is a short LYFT or UBER ride away, or better, walking distance to all sorts of public transportation, including a cable car right outside of the front entrance. We will always return to the Omni - a very good bargain given the room charge, as well as a wonderfully comfortable and enjoyable stay.
