How to Get There

I would not recommend this hotel at all
The room was booked through Priceline that same day we went. Last minute trip for my husband and I. When we arrived we were greeted but wasn’t given much information about the hotel or asked if we needed anything else. So customer service was bare minimum. The room was 2 queens vs a king due to my mistake on Priceline. It was a nice room but could use a little make over for updating. Housekeeping could also do a better job but I can’t complain due to the low cost of the room. I wasn’t impressed with the $24/night self parking fee. That’s high and it should come with the hotel fee. (In my opinion) Overall, it’s a great location and nice hotel!
The hotel was recently remodeled due to flooding, and the restaurant and bar staff downstairs have only been back on the job for three months. This meant they tried really hard, but were (clearly) still a bit disorganized.
I had the same breakfast server every morning. His name was Bobby, and he was great. The bartender in the evenings was a young woman named Savannah, and her service was also excellent.
There just seemed to be a disconnect with the kitchen staff, perhaps. Food took quite a while to come out. Aside from that, the gym is nice, the pool was well-maintained, and the staff was all professional.
I have one gripe, and it was really annoying: Their Chromecast system for streaming Netflix is maddening, and unreliable. I ended up sorting it out after my third day, but basically -- the hotel WiFi tends to forget your phone, in this case, my Android Galaxy S10, but also my wife's iPhone 10. Yes, you can call the customer service number to get it fix, and that works, but I found just re-pairing every four hours to be the best thing.
Is it on the Omni? Kinda/sorta. Stayconnect is the software provider for the built in Chromecast, and their customer service is good, but their software is buggy. Now, is it a huge deal? Eh, not really. It's just annoying. When I'm trying to unwind at night after work, I don't want to spend time troubleshooting Netflix. I travel with my own Chromecast, but the Omni doesn't allow you to connect it to their WiFi, because it can't get to their splash/payment screen.
If I have one takeaway: Omni Hotels need to let their guests use devices like Kindle Fires and Chomecasts. Lots of people (me, and others) travel with them. It's not a huge ask.
This is definitely the best hotel I have stayed at! Everything was amazing from being greeted at the door to leaving at check out time! The rooms were so clean and the view was amazing. This is definitely a place I would come back to again in the future!
Everything was wrong with my room. Air conditioner leaking onto the floor and not working so we slept horribly, WiFi didn’t work, tub was clogged. I left early because I was so disappointed Not coming here again.
