The lobby and rooms at this Omni were very attractive and very clean. By joining Omni's Select Guest program we got complimentary internet and morning beverages. The staff at the checkin area and concierge were very pleasant and helpful. The location was convenient; we were able to walk to many restaurants, the Caltrain station and AT&T park.

My husband took care of the travel plans for a surprise wedding anniversary trip to San Francisco. We'd never stayed at an Omni hotel, so he wasn't sure what to expect but said he made his choice after combing through Trip Advisor reviews :)

From the moment we walked into the Omni to the morning we left to return to Ohio during our four-night stay in San Francisco, we had a most positive experience. The housekeeping staff, the front desk personnel, the doormen--every one was friendly and helpful.

Our room was on the 16th floor and very quiet, and the elevators were fairly speedy. The hotel had a turn-down service each night, and on our first night, we were surprised to come into the room and see a chilled bottle of champagne, strawberries and dipping sauces waiting for us along with a handwritten note of congratulations on our anniversary. We didn't drink the champagne that night since we got in so late and had time for about 5 hours of sleep before having to wake up again, but our housekeeper made sure the champagne was resting in fresh ice the next evening. The room was well-appointed and quite comfortable. The attention of the Omni staff was outstanding.

The location was perfect for us. The cable car at the end of California St. is reportedly a good bet if you want to avoid crowds on the cable cars. We had no problem getting on. We were quite close to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf was walkable for those who are active.

You won't be disappointed by booking your stay at the Omni San Francisco. They helped make a special anniversary even more memorable with their thoughtful touches and fabulous service.

Hotel is a walking distance to everything. Chinatown is the next block over. It's only a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf. We didn't have to rent a car. We walked everywhere. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. The room was clean with one exception, the carpet was a little damp. The bed was very soft and comfortable. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

We chose the hotel because of location--places of interest within walking distance. Mark Schoenberh, the concierge added a lot of value helping us with our vacation agenda. Sat-Sun were good. Monday was very busy as this hotel is in the financial district.

This was an absolutely outstanding stay! I always enjoy this Omni because of its location, friendliness of staff, food options, and rooms. It exceeded expectations!!! I got an amazing room and used it to get work done, which was easy to do. I also used the fitness center, in-room dining, a banquet facility, the business center, and valet parking. All perfect!

It's very rare for my family and me to stay at a hotel for four nights and have zero complaints. But our stay at the Omni was indeed perfect. Everything was first rate - the property itself, the impeccable service offered by the friendly staff, and the location. Our room was lovely and quiet, the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was roomy with nice amenities, and the shower had great water pressure. The complimentary morning beverage service (offered to members of Omni's Select Guest Program) was greatly appreciated. My seven year old was especially impressed with the chocolate chip cookies and milk that magically appeared each evening with the turndown service. This hotel is located right on one of S.F.'s cable car lines and is only 5 flat blocks away from a BART station, so we were able to get around town very easily without having a car. I'll definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to San Francisco for business or pleasure.

This hotel was recommended to us by our travel agent. We found the experience to be exceptionally wonderful and will return when we are back in San Francisco again. The room was lovely, the service was attentive, and the location was excellent.
