Omni San Diego Hotel

Reviewed 18 November 2013

We stayed again at the San Diego Omni. From the friendly greeting by the doorman through the happy check in staff the arrival experience was great. The hotel is huge but friendly. The place is immaculate. Don't miss the fabulous and bargain priced breakfast downstairs. The daily valet parking fee of $38 is a bit steep, but parking in the neighborhood is a problem. Wi-fi is available but spotty. You will enjoy your stay, and we will surely return.

Room Tip: The higher the better, and ask for a bay view.

Booked Omni under federal government rate. Staff was excellent from early check-in to departure. Check-in staff even offered me the tax free federal forms up front. Clean and quiet rooms. Great location, blocks from Gaslamp District but situated such that you don't have the heavy foot or vehicle traffic. Was able to walk everywhere and only needed vehicle for business. Don't miss the coffee shop that has excellent baked goods-it's tucked away left of the lobby where you don't see it right away.

Don't pay a premium price for this place and definitely not up to standard for an Omni. They canceled my friend's reservation because our flight was canceled (all flights to San Diego were canceled that night due to extreme amounts of fog). I then tried to help her get her room back, then spoke to the manager because the woman at the front desk couldnt help us. It was then that the manager changed my room into 2 doubles, so that my friend could stay with me, and then she was able to book my friend her own room the rest of the nights. But we only got that because I asked to speak to the manager. The rooms are average. The beds are terrible. All the finishes are cheap. There is a lot of outdoor noise in the room I stayed in facing the Marriot. The soap/ shampoo, conditioner were all cheap. The best thing about this hotel is that it is very clean, the cleaning staff did an awesome job cleaning the rooms each night. Overall, stay away if you can. I would have been happier at a Best Western.

Dear SheilaS.
Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. I apologize that your friend's flight was cancelled and that it lead to her reservation also being cancelled. We do our very best to accommodate guests in these circumstances. However, due to the citywide convention, we did not have the available inventory the next day. I am hoping that we can connect this week to discuss your experience in more detail. Please email me at canderson@omnihotels.com to let me know the best time and number to reach you.
Sincerely,
Colleen Anderson

Very impressed with this hotel. Great gym, great location, very helpful staff. Rooms are great with super comfortable beds and linens, but the service is what separates this hotel from the rest. They call you by name and seem to genuinely care about your day and make you feel welcome. I will be staying at this hotel again for sure.

Very clean hotel with professional staff. A bit high priced for similar quality which costs less. Nicely located to many attractions, restaurants, shopping and convention center. Staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants, attractions and giving directions.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. It was close to the convention centre and the Gaslamp quarter. The staff were friendly and helpful. The spacious room was well maintained and comfortable. The gym was well equipped and nicely situated.

This is the hotel I stay at every time I'm in San Diego for a conference. Directly across the street from the conference center, it is actually closer than the "conference center" hotels on Harbor Drive from most of the goings-on, plus you're steps away from the 5th St. Gaslamp District nightlife. Staff is VERY friendly; hotel furnishings are comfortable and sleek. I've been coming here for nearly 15 years and it looks just as good as the first time I stayed there; very well kept-up. I have never had noise problems that bother me but there is a fair amount of sound that comes through from above (or below I suppose) when someone is running the shower in another room. Pool and outdoor space around it is beautiful, a great place to eat some takeout. McCormick and Schmidt restaurant there is chain, uninspired & overpriced, but convenient, friendly and efficient. Don't come for the breakfast, as others have noted, but join the Select Guest program and get free beverages and cheap muffins, etc. delivered to your room in the morning.

Room Tip: Rooms looking to the west and south have nice views but some have complained of noise from the railr...
