Good Stay, No frills, No worries

Good all around experience. The wife and I had a very rare opportunity to get out of the house for our birthdays and decided to make a stay over out of it. I am quite obsessive about making the night perfect (or it seems at least these days "hitch free") and the omni delivered. Staff is friendly in a business friendly type way. Seems from our stay and those of other reviewers, that the majority of the clientele that visit the omni seem to be from either wedding parties or business conventions/seminars. This was not a bad thing from our point of view as things were quiet around the place when they needed to be. Especially on the floor we stayed at. It seemed that we were the only ones there despite hearing a door close or two. Hotel was just a couple of blocks from westheimer if you're looking for excitement. And there's free transportation for a 3 mile radius. Hotel itself seemed to be quite aged. Regal but aged. All around favorable experience. Nothing fantastic. Nothing horrible.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

If you have the time, do try to visit The Black Swan located in the lower lobby of the hotel. The place really doesn't get going until 11pm or midnight but it is a great place to unwind. It doesn't even matter if you can dance all that well. It didn't seem that anyone else there was very good, or cared to be, for that matter. Amazing what liquid courage can do. And speaking for that, drinks are EXPENSIVE for my taste. But that could just be because I've been married too long and am cheap.

Enjoyed our stay

My fiancée and I enjoyed our stay. The day we arrived they had a wedding so the valet staff was not very attentive in helping us with our luggage, but we managed.

Good location

We went to Houston for a weekend trip to shop for my girlfriend's birthday. The Galleria hotel was pricier and the Omni looked great so we decided to try it. It beat our expectations and we wished we would have planned a longer trip. The hotel was great but only a couple miles from the mall so we didn't spend much time there. Would definitely go back. Also we joined the free select guest club so from now on we get perks at all Omni hotels.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

The Galleria is only about a 5 minute drive, and in Houston that means a lot. The hotel had nice restaurants, but the mall has so many it can easily double as the shopping and dining destination.

Great Pool and Bar

Arrived Friday evening for a wedding, and checking in was fast and easy. Room was definitely large enough for two people to comfortably get ready at the same time. Went to the Black Swan both nights and had a great time, full of people but not too crowded. The police were a little antsy about getting people out when it closed but otherwise it was fun. Pool on Saturday was also fun and well-attended. Really friendly, funny staff at the poolside bar.
