The Omni San Francisco Hotel's architecture embodies elegance and style. Originally constructed as a bank in the 1920s, the hotel commemorates its luxurious past with shimmering Austrian chandeliers and handsome Italian marble in the lobby. Guest rooms capture the charm of the Old World with ornate cherry wood and mahogany furniture, and the hotel's guest bathrooms feature fine finishes, such as Chinese granite vanities with Italian marble floors and walls. You can escape to a 'secret garden' terrace off the Grand Ballroom or burn off extra energy in the full-size fitness center.

Highlights

The iconic cable car stops right outside the Omni's front door, and you can ride it to Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square. You can also find a shopper's paradise at both Union Square and the Westfield Mall, which are within walking distance of the hotel. The Omni's on-site restaurant, Bob's Steak & Chop House, has award-winning staff serving up superb New American cuisine. If you prefer, you can unwind with a drink at the hotel's quieter corner bar.

The Omni welcomes children with a complimentary backpack filled with crayons, memory game cards, an activity book with healthy snack recipes and a twisty tomato straw when you check in. Milk and cookies are delivered to your room on the first night.

Gem of a hotel

My wife and I stayed at the Omni for an extended 4 day weekend. We couldn't have had a better fit for our SF visit. Its location is perfect for visiting the various sections of this vibrant and beautiful city. Walk around the corner to Chinatown. Walk or take a trolley car from outside the hotel to the busy wharf areas or walk to the many parks or upscale shopping sites. But the staff at The Omni are second to none. Very friendly and attentive to you enjoying your stay. Will definitely be back.

Expensive for what you get

I was expecting a little more for all the money we had to pay for this hotel. However, it was a great location with the cable cars right outside the door. it was nice to get a free beverage in the AM for signing up for the rewards program.

Highly recommend taking the cable cars to Fishermans Wharf and back to Union Sq. Also, you must go to the Ferry building to La Mer and when they have the Farmers Market.

Great location

The hotel was beautiful.. Great location.. We walked 2 fisherman s wharf and union square.. Great staff all very friendly and helpful.. When we came back 2 the hotel in the evening there was homemade cookies with the kids names on them and milk waiting, nice touch.. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the view.. Our room looked out at an office building where we could see everyone at their desks and they could see us. Hotel was a bit pricey but overall it was great..

Great Stay

We only stayed a night for NYE. Great location, staff was super friendly, room service was on time and yummy. Our room was nothing special, but super clean and no weird smells! Fridge was stocked with goodies and drinks (all of which were marked up almost triple what you would buy at the store, but it was still nice to have if you wanted it.) We went to a concert at the Warfield and was easily in walking distance from the hotel, which was great! Also, plenty of food choice within a mile or two.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

When traveling to new places, having a map with GPS has alleviated the stress of getting lost and trying to figure out the proximity of places. The great thing about smartphone GPS is that you can put in the type of transportation (bus, rail, walking, driving) and it will give you the route specific to your type, which is extremely helpful!

A Wonderful Hotel--Except for the Parking!

This hotel is close to the Financial District and to Chinatown. The check-in and check-out staff is helpful, offering map directions to restaurants and how to get back to the freeway. The room was spacious and clean, although with a limited view. The amenities were good in the room (snacks to buy, q-tips, etc.) The beds were comfortable, the room mostly quiet, and the valet service good. The temperature wasn't easily adjustable, but there was plenty of hot water. The price of parking was too high ($60/24 hrs.!) Get there by bus, BART, a friend's car, or shuttle. Just don't drive there!

Best staff at a hotel I have EVER experienced

My husband and I went there for a weekend getaway and we definitely thought it was a great value for the money we paid. The staff there are very nice and helpful and the rooms were very clean. I can honestly say that I didn't have a single gripe about our hotel. The location was perfect for us because I didn't want to be in the congestion of Union square. It was only a few blocks from the train station so it perfect all around. The only drawback that I can of was that there were not that many restaurants within walking distance. We at the hotel the first night we got there but were too tired to give it a fair rating. Undoubtedly, we would return back to this hotel when in the SF area.

Long Weekend

The Omni is perfectly located within walking distance of the Ferry Market building, Chinatown, Union Square, and Nob Hill. Very friendly staff and a great value. This was our 2nd time staying there and will stay there again.
