My family and I stayed at the Omni San Francisco just after the Christmas holidays. My wife and I have a soft spot for the Omni chain as we had stayed at a few around the US. They are in my opinion, full of charm and style of the old world that makes them unique. If you want a contemporary style, corporate type hotel then this is not for you. The Omni SF has beautiful wood, glass and chrome that makes it look and feel lavish. We arrived late in the night but were checked in quickly and efficiently with all our questions answered. Our bags were brought up to our room promptly and without fuss. The room decor was stylish and was clean. The bathroom had a marble counter, was well stocked and again was spotless. I've noticed that a lot of the Omni don't have full sized baths but I'm more of a shower person so that didn't bother me. There was a large TV with a good selection of channels to choose from. Internet access was straightforward and was free being a member of their Omni programme. They have a restaurant which is where breakfast is served in the mornings. In the evenings it is a steak house which get very favourable reviews. We did not try it out as it was a little beyond our budget. Service at the hotel has always been great and nothing was too much trouble for the staff there.
The hotel is situated in the heart of the Financial District which means that it gets quieter at night but never feels unsafe to walk around. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance and the cable car stops just at the top of the block. Chinatown and Union Square are with 10-15 minutes walk away so is perfectly situated for the heart of the city.
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel and though it may not be the cheapest, its worth every penny.

Fellow Trip Advisor travelers did not fail me! Again, the recommendations and ratings were right on. The hotel had some great after holiday last minute rates, we had a last minute free weekend. Made for a lovely getaway. The meals (2 breakfasts included with our pkg, and a dinner) at the hotel restaurant were superb! We walked to the pier and to Union Square. Although we had not stayed in the neighborhood before, we will again!

Loved the Omni - great location. Within walking distance of Market Street, Chinatown, Embarcadero, Fishermans Wharf, union square, nob hill. Lots of great restaurants in the area. Little disappointed there was no coffee maker in the room even though it was listed on their web site. Also the concierge sent us to a restaurant that was not what he claimed it was - were told it was a great place to have a wonderful meal. We went and were very disappointed. The place was chaotic, service terrible, very loud, very small food selection. Rooms were comfortable and room service was quick and very good food. We would definitely stay again!

Our 22nd anniversary consisted of a trip to San Francisco while staying at the Omni. The staff ensured our stay was comfortable and bent over backwards with strawberries, champagne, and chocolates for us on the bed after dinner. Every staff member is execptional and ensured our visit was spectacular.

This is my favorite place to stay in San Francisco. It is a great location, pretty good price and next to a ton of good restaurants. There is nothing like finishing off the night at Bob's bar. I would also highly recommend getting the steak breakfast at Bob's Restaurant. You won't find a better breakfast in San Francisco financial district.

The property is in excellent condition. The location is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. All recommendations for restaurants and directions were excellent. The front desk set us up in a king room with a hide a bed couch and a roll away to accommodate our teenagers. All around excellent!

Excellent service, luxury linen and great location. We took the upgrade to king suite as the 2 double beds in the one room would have been a tight fit. Perfect place to recharge the batteries. The cookies and milk for the kids on arrival was a lovely touch.
