Walking into the Omni from bustling Michigan Avenue, you’re greeted so warmly by the down-to-earth staff that you’ll instantly forget the Windy City’s chilly temperatures. The lighting is soft, and the lobby, with its dark wood and gold accents, is tasteful and simple.
All of the 347 guest rooms are suites with spacious marble bathrooms and elegant parlors separated from the bedrooms by French doors. The polished woods and earthy tones–olive and cream, chocolate and moss–lend a coziness to the design.
Depending on your idea of relaxation, hit the well-equipped fitness center or the year-round indoor pool, which is flanked by lounge chairs, pool toys for the kids and an adjacent fifth-floor balcony that opens to a wide view of Michigan Avenue. Back in your room, order up the moisturizing orange blossom scrub and massage or make use of the free in-room Get Fit Kit, with its dumbbells, floor mat and stretch cords.
Most of the hotel is quiet, but the 676 Restaurant & Bar pumps in upbeat music and has friendly bartenders mixing up cocktails inspired by different areas of Chicago, including the “18th and Pilsen” pomegranate margarita, named after one of city’s up-and-coming art neighborhoods. Taste your way through the drink menu, then explore the areas that inspired them. The hotel’s location just off the Magnificent Mile makes it the ideal homebase for neighborhood explorations.
How to Get There
Nice hotel for the location. Customer service while checking in and out was not welcoming or warm. Bellmen were excellent and always smiling. My room was nice but not what I expected. The windows dripped with condensation, the baseboards, walls, and window screen were not in the best condition. I never received the perks being a rewards member.
From the door greeting to the quick check-in and all suite rooms, this is a wonderful property. The staff is friendly, rooms are very clean and have just what you need. The morning beverage service is great. I enjoy the 676 Bar and restaurant as well. The food and drinks are lovely and the staff friendly. The maid service is consistent and always done well. The views from all rooms are excellent and location perfect for easy access to everything you want to do.
Located on the mag mile, an older, but quality hotel.
When you enter you need to go to the third floor to check in, but then you feel you are inside a nice hotel.
The suite, which we used has a separate couch area and very comfortable beds in the bedroom area. The lighting could definitely be brighter.
The pool is a very wonderful temperature (which some hotels are not always that way, so good job Omni!) and there is a hot tub too!
We had breakfast in restaurant and bar 676 located on the fourth floor of the hotel, overlooking the Michigan Avenue! It’s a great space for a meal or a drink!
Other than the room being small and a bit dark, everything was good and location is great!
I stayed in the Hotel during the cold spell late January. the hotel is very well located and offers all the service that you need.
the room was very good and warm in the cold outside. the bar and restaurant were very good, the breakfast was excellent.
The staff was very efficient and friendly.
i can only recommend this Hotel.
We have stayed at the Omni Chicago several times and the service has always been top notch. The rooms are very nice, roomy, and clean. Highly recommend the corner suite. Room service is prompt and food has been very good. The advance check-in and express check-out is fantastic! Also, the hotel is centrally located.
