If you are looking for a luxurious, modern, elegant, clean and very comfortable, and cozy hotel; a convenient and safe location with quick and easy walking access to the SF tourist sites, the financial district, Union square, and numerous shops, restaurants, and taxis and cable cars at your doorstep; And the MOST friendly, warm, helpful, engaging and inviting staff you have EVER met then stay at the Omni SF!!!!!!!!! The hospitality of the staff is superior and unparalleled and will make you feel like you are a prince/princess and yet at home and among family/friends!!!
After a conference in Marin, I chose to spend some time playing in SF on my own. I chose the Omni because as a single woman travelling on my own, and being somewhat unfamiliar with the area, I wanted a safe location with easy access to the major tourist sites and a sense of luxury. Compared to other 4+ to 5 star hotels, this was financially the best deal! I had intended to spend one night at the Omni and then go to a friends house for 1 night and then stay at the Fairmont. Well guess what? I changed my plans and am back at the Omni currently enjoying my freshly brewed delivered coffee to my room (free) and my free wi-fi in a most comfy armchair.
As a physician who has had the opportunity to stay in some of the world's finest resorts, I must say that I have never come across as warm, friendly, helpful and genuine staff in my life as I did at the Omni SF!! They are attentive, passionate about what they do and they naturally go out of their way to offer superior service. Allow me to share by example...
-Upon check-in, I was warmly greeted by Michael P. He on his own said "Let me see what is the best room I can give you". I had paid for a basic room but since they did have availability he put me in a room with a gorgeous view of the bay! He then proceeded to take out a map, answer my questions and give me restaurant recommendations (and printed out menus for me)and gave me sightseeing recommendations. He must have spent at least 10 minutes with me! I felt like I was the only guest in the lobby (not the case)
-The next day I ran into the concierge Lex. He is a walking encyclopedia and is obviously so passionate about his city. I asked for a recommendation for the best dim sum in the area. Not only did he give me a great tip and showed me the location on a map, on his own he escorted me out of the hotel, and walked me down a block to point out in person what street to take! That's unheard of! ( I am just a simple guest,not a VIP).
-The general manager Is a very friendly, down to earth, hands on manager. He spent time in the lobby greeting guests in the afternoon. He gave me his card, encouraged me to reach out to him if he could help in any way, and thanked me for staying at the Omni. Now that is class!
-Everyone I met greeted me with a warm welcome and clearly took an interest in means my stay. I remember the many "Good morning!!!!s) I received on my first morning
Need I say more? No. But I will!
Other neat pearls...
-The most plush and royal in-room carpeting my feet have ever felt!- a great massage for the feet simply by walking on it
- Large room size, comfortable bed,nice 32 inch LCD TV, clean and spotless room
-Elegant furnishings and fixtures in the rooms and main lobby (Italian marble, mahogany wood, silk curtains, light calming wall colors)
-Delicious food (and huge portions!!) in the restaurant at reasonable prices
-Taxis parked in front of the hotel and a cable car stop in front of the hotel
-Safe,clean location (with no pan-handlers unlike other streets in the area)
-A few walking blocks to the waterfront, upscale boutiques and department scores at Union Square and a multitude of cafés, restaurants and convenience shops
-Freshly brewed delivered pot of coffee (or AM beverage of choice-tea, juice, milk) at predesignated time of day and free fast in-room Wi-Fi (As a select guest rewards member-free membership)
Whenever I travel to SF, I will surely stay ONLY here. It has been a visit with pampered luxury and a feeling of being at home with the family..such a unique combination rarely found elsewhere!!!
