I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Omni, and it was truly an exceptional experience. The ambiance of the hotel is imbued with a unique charm that transports you to a different era, merging the allure of the past with the comforts of the present. What truly stood out during my stay, apart from the hotel's intrinsic beauty, was the commendable service I received from the staff. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine warmth made me feel valued and well-taken care of. Rooms were spacious, immaculately clean, and well-appointed. The amenities provided were top-notch, reflecting the hotel's commitment to ensuring a luxurious stay for its guests.

Stayed for one night the week before Christmas. Great location, clean rooms and lobby, and the housekeeping and doormen were excellent, however the service from front desk lacking. One of our rooms was not ready for over an hour after the promised check-in time of three PM, despite them repeatedly telling me they would call me when it was finally ready, they didn't. Wouldn't have been a huge problem if we didn't have pre-show dinner reservations at 5. We got the key for the third room on the way out for the evening, after checking again for its status. It was 4:15 PM. Also, paid the extra $150 per room for late check-out, and of course each key stopped working at noon, after they assured us that wouldn't happen. Easy fix I know, but after the check-in debacle, the dismissive attitude of the front desk wasn't appreciated. Also, although I was aware of this when booked, no fridges/mini bars, coffee maker in the rooms and there where blocks of time where there was no room service available and the restaurant in the hotel was closed. We had to call a number just to receive water and no one answered, luckily I ran into a nice guy delivering some to another room next door so we were able to get some water bottles. Just a warning to maybe view this spot as more three star for the service (except the doormen and housekeepers we encountered who were very helpful). Hotel was clean and room was comfortable, location was perfect for what we were doing. Also, the dispatcher who scheduled car service was excellent.
