“Bland and Somewhat Dingy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Get set for a dingy room with with tired old carpets and walls. Add to that the bland decor and character of this brand, and what you get is a seriously mediocre experience. For a few dollars more per night, you could stay somewhere so much better. The only bright spot was the staff, who were uber-friendly.

This hotel doesnt offer much in terms of atmosphere but my room had a fantastic view over the yale green. The staff were helpful. Wifi weak in rooms.
Clean if bland, and comfortable. Alos well located within minutes of the university and a nice Pizza place called Zink.

Room Tip: Ask for a view over the Yale green. And also do go up to the top floor restaurant even if you dont e...

Great hotel located blocks from Yale University. Very reasonable for a high quality hotel in an urban area. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Had to make a change in my reservation and it was handled in minutes over the phone. Room was large with flat screen TV and free internet. Would stay there in a heartbeat.

This hotel has a nice location in central New Haven. Easy walk to Yale. The staff were generally very friendly and accomdating. The breakfast was very good. My room was ok, bed was comfortable, bathroom was small and could use some refurbishment. My room faced the front of the hotel. Upon arrival I wondered why there was a set of ear plugs on the night stand. Over the course of the 2 weeks I stayed at the hotel, I discovered why they were there. Several nights I was awakened from the noise coming from the bars across the street and one night I was awakened by the wedding party having their reception in the hotel. If I were to stay at the hotel again, I would request a room that did not face the front of the hotel. Perhaps it was just when I stayed, but the elevator service was horrible. Elevators took forever to arrive and when they finally did, they were invariably full.

You should not have to pay $25.00 a night/day if you stay at the hotel. I went up to the 19t floor to have a cocktail; the bar tender walked away and after 10 minutes, he hadn't returned. I went back to my room.

Reservations, speedy check-in, staff all top notch. We travelled with our two older kids and were not able to get two queen beds, only two double beds. This made sleeping uncomfortable. Everything else about the hotel was great, including the staff.

I enjoyed a seven night stay at the Omni while in New Haven for a meeting at Yale. The staff were friendly and courteous. The rooms were updated and clean. I ate several meals onsite through the banquet and catering team. They were all very good. My only complaint is that I had a room on the top guest floor. It was loud in the morning and night as the bar, a restaurant and some of the banquet facilities are above it. I could hear them doing take down and set up. It sounded like tables dragging. The times of day that it happened made it an inconvenience. My other suggestion would be for more creation of public space. The bar is small so there were no really good places to visit with groups outside of the meeting spaces.
