Omni Hotel San Francisco

A great hotel experience.

The Omni Hotel San Francisco is located on California and Montgomery Streets in the financial district, a couple of blocks away from the Mandarin Oriental and the TransAmerica Pyramid.  It's also very close to Chinatown and Little Italy. It's a little off the beaten path but if you go on a weekend, it's relatively quiet.

5  Main Entrance on California Street

5  View from the grand staircase upon arrival.

The lobby has a grand staircase and a grand lobby.  It also has a lot of pocket areas where you can meet friends and a mezzanine lobby-bar area sometimes with live music during the cocktail hour.

5  Small pocket areas in the lobby provide a great area for meeting friends, private conversations or a cocktail.

5  The bedrooms are on the small-ish side but quite comfortable and clean.

5 View of bathroom

The bathroom has a pocket door and the shower/tub has a really tall ceiling which is quite nice when you are sitting in your bubble bath (provided).

5  Amenities include a bubble bath and surprisingly - spray starch!

5  They do a double point fold on the toilet paper and gift wrap the emergency roll - nice!

5  The slippers appear when they turn down the beds. It comes with it's own floor mat.

5  The housekeeper left a nice note.  

While the hotel may not be so different from other great San Francisco hotels, what sets it apart is the great people and unobtrusive service.  The service was impeccable from the front desk, concierge and housekeeping.  I would definitely love to stay here again.
