We were incredibly lucky in the Comic-Con room lottery when we got the Omni. Right across the street from the convention center! The convenience of location alone makes it five stars for me. Just being able to see my hotel from the con center's exit, glimmering like a beacon of hope over the hordes of agitated, bedraggled cosplayers trying to leave the exhibit hall at 7pm every night just... heartens me.
The rooms themselves are nice enough. I had a view over the very comfy pool and out towards the con center itself. Loved lounging poolside and getting pricey but decent cocktails delivered to my seat. The breakfast in the restaurant downstairs was really good, too. Can't really complain about this hotel at all. Nothing stood out as exceptional to me, and it seemed pricey, but for a home base during SDCC, there's few options better than this. (The Hilton Bayfront has a much nicer bar, though.)
I was so happy to hear we lucked out and got our rooms at the Omni again for 2014's SDCC!More
