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
First and foremost, the Omni has great staff. I've been there twice now, and never felt like they were anything other than exemplars of hospitality. The front desk (kudos to Trevor), the bellmen (shout out to the excellent Mr. Tang), room service, housekeeping -- they're all just wonderful. Whomever does their hiring holds the secret of making the place great.
The location is great if you're doing business nearby, and a bit out of the way if not.
The rooms themselves are pretty good, especially for an old inner city hotel. There's power outlets everywhere, which I appreciate a lot given how many devices I travel with have their own power cords.
The one quibble I have is that they should expand their menus in both room service as well as in the restaurant with more variety and especially more vegetarian options. Some Chinese options would be a nice solution to both as well as an homage to the adjacent sections of town.
The whole experience overall was amazing. Great location. Clean room, clean bathroom. The staff was very friendly and veru helpful when asking for directions. Theres so many things to do within walking distance. China town is only 2 blocks away. Public transportation is right by the hotel
If I go back I will definetly stay there.
Stayed only one night, but wish it was more. The staff, starting at the front door, to valet, to the front desk, etc. was right up there with the most friendly and helpful that I can remember. The room was a nice size and more than comparable to what you will find with other luxury options. Saving Tip: Sign up for the free Omni loyalty program and receive free wi-fi, plus a few more little perks. Valet is pricey, but was extremely fast, since you can call for you car from your cell phone and receive a text when ready. Valet compares with other city hotel valet pricing...SF just has difficult parking overall, so it is expected. Walking distance to many things...Financial, Chinatown, Ferry Building, Embarcadero, Washington Sq., Union Sq.
The Omni is very well-situated within the Financial District, which makes it a great option for those traveling to SF for business. The area is nice and quiet, which reflects the overall vibe at the Omni.
Staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are functional. Don’t expect to be blown away with luxury or chic design features — just solid, clean, and large-ish rooms.
Would recommend going elsewhere for breakfast, as it is not included with your stay and the restaurant at the hotel is more of a dinner place anyways.
We recently spent 3 nights at the Omni in San Francisco and had a fabulous stay.The staff are the greatest asset of this hotel.They were very welcoming and the Concierge was excellent at recommending things to do on our visit.
The hotel is very centrally located to many of the attractions.Do use the cable car right outside the front door!
Great beds and good linen,too.
Would definitely stay here again,as you feel really cosseted after long days out sight-seeing.
