Brand new property and gorgeous...right in downtown Harbor Island. Very close to the new stadium there.  The rooms have flat screen TV's and the fitness center has brand new state of the art equipment.  What's better than a personal TV at the treadmill?  The restaurant is delicious as well...great seafood!  4 Yelp stars for a 4 star property.

The OMNI is great if you're looking to stay near the Convention Center, Gaslamp, and Ballpark.  The hotel is very comfortable, in excellent condition, and well designed.  The staff is very attentive

My favorite hotel in the whole wide world (for now at least...I need to get myself to the St. Regis in Bora Bora).  ;)  Not surprisingly, it's also my favorite out of all the Omnis I've stayed at (and let me tell you, there have been quite a few).  The rooms are decorated well, the view from the pool is great, and the fitness center makes you want to stay there and actually exercise.  :)  Valet tends to get backed up from time to time, but service at the hotel has been great!  If you want to spoil yourself, stay here.  :)

Just stayed here for New Year's Eve and was fairly impressed. There was a good deal online for somewhere around $135 a night. The room was clean and the bathrooms were nice. It was pretty quiet in the halls, not noisy like most hotels. In terms of nitpicking things, I agree with some other reviews in saying that the sheets weren't the softest. Even though we were in a Premium room, if I get a chance to go back I'd probably try to get a room that was higher up so we'd have a great view of the bay/bridge.

Simply adored our stay at the Omni Hotel! I'm a firm believer in quality customer service and it's definitely one of the attributes that I do remember from a hotel. Sure, you could have the clean, simple modern architecture but w/o a friendly face to greet you at valet, the front desk, in the lobby, on your hotel floor you might as well stay across the street at pretentious Hard Rock! (did I type that out loud, oops!) The valet offers you bottled water for your excursion, the bell boy is friendly, and if you sign up for free Omni rewards you get complimentary wifi in your room! The bathrooms are clean and well kept. The bed could use a little advice from the Westin beds, but they're not too bad. They definitely need to upgrade their TVs to flat screens. But the location is perfect if your stay includes a Padre game, a trip on the trolley or just running around downtown. Just goes to show that hotels can be stylish and trendy w/o being cold and snobbish! Yay Omni!

I live in North San Diego, but got a great deal on priceline, so we decided to take make the weekend a little mini-trip.  First, the location of this hotel is awesome.  It is close to so many activities, such as Seaport village, shops, restaurants, nightlife and the trolley.   Definitely a good place to stay when you are exploring downtown and the gaslamp district.  The room was spacious enough for the 3 of us, beds were comfy and bathroom was nice.  The "rolling" bathroom door was a neat touch.  We had a partial view of the bay (about 1/4) and the remaining with a parking structure.  The reason  I give the Omni only 3 stars is because of service.. unfortunately.   I was genuinely excited to stay here because of the great things I heard, especially related to customer service.  When we first arrived, there was no one to open the doors for us (even thought there was a doorman).  When we arrived to the front desk, there was one person being helped, 3 people at the counter.   The "available" people at the front desk did nothing to make note of my presence there. Well, actually they did look me in the eye, but there was no "hello", "welcome" or  "we will be with you in a few moments."  Etc.  Honestly it was a bit awkward.  Not sure if it had to do with me not looking like a millionaire but more an average joe (or jane in my case).  And while we were waiting, one of the people at the front desk actually left.  This treatment left a very bitter taste in my mouth, so I'm not sure if I will be back.

This was my first stay in the Omni and I would definitely consider staying in this hotel again. The hotel has a modern and contempory feel to it. The rooms are a decent size and the beds quite comfortable. The bathroom isn't that great as it has just a standard tub/shower. The view from the hotel is awesome. The pool area is also very nice. In the lobby there is a McCormick's & Schmidt's that has an awesome happy hour! I would definately recommend this hotel.

Great new, modern hotel. For a tech addict like me, it had small features that made a big difference--a mp3 plug into its alarm clock so I could hook up my iPod, a desk with easily accessible ethernet and electric outlets, a cordless phone, and a DVD player! I landed this 20th floor room through Priceline at $115/night. The only downsides are you pay for parking at $26/night, and the Gaslamp neighborhood can be really loud on Sat night (I could hear music from my 20th floor room!). Otherwise, I loved the pool, exercise room, and cleanliness!

I don't know if this is okay to say or do but my compadre and I go here for the rooftop pool and mojitos. (I live in SD) I'm not familiar/kinda grossed out by public pools. The restaurant has brunch with good pancakes and omlettes and regular meals of standard chain quality to justify being there, but in the summer you can order food poolside

My friend and I were in a car accident in front of the Omni over the weekend.  Stupid cabbie.  Anyway, the staff at the Omni couldn't have been nicer.  At least four Omni employees offered to help us and even agreed to let us valet our car for free while we got dinner (for my birthday!) downtown.  If the Omni's valet/ bellboy/ doorman staff is any reflection of the rest of the hotel, that's a very good sign.

Wowzers. What a nice hotel! I was in SD for a rather large convention and the Omni couldn't have been in a better location. Not only were we right across the street for work, but we were also across the street from the fabled and fun Gaslamp District. Definitely recommend a stay here, especially if you need to go to the convention center. For baseball lovers: Ask for a room on one of the top floors. Chances are, you'll have a great view into SD's new PetCo Park.

i would like to take this time to review an omni queen sized bed which i myself had the pleasure of occupying. i wasnt able to familiarize myself too much with my sleeping accommodation but what i can tell you is that my eyes were open to  the true essence of sleeping and or napping. prior to my stay at the hotel i was under the assumption that sleep could be done on any type of mattress or couch. how wrong was i. my ideas of sleep have been misshapen and perverted. i doubt ill ever get another glimpse of REM nirvana until i return. thanks for bringing to my attention how lousy my current bed is and how awesome yours are. kudos

I stayed here for New Year's Eve and spent a total of 3 nights. The location is great, walking distance to everything (even Horton Plaza if you're mildly ambitious). The staff is friendly, the room was clean, valet was prompt. I really like the fact that McCormick & Schmick's is downstairs. Your guaranteed to be able to have a good meal if you don't want to leave the hotel instead of your typical hotel food. My only complaint is that our room was facing the convention center. We could hear the trolley and train running throughout the night. Also the Hard Rock Hotel across the street was jumpin' over the weekend so we could hear the noise from their rooftop lounge and the patio from their first floor bar. We booked the room thru hotels.com and got an incredible rate so I guess that's why we got stuck on the 5th floor with all of the noise. Even so, I would definitely stay here again!

I am writing this review from my hotel room at the Omni.  We came down here for a business meeting, and I am so glad we did!  We got back from Europe earlier in the week, and had grown accustomed to miniscule rooms where the only seating was on the bed and if you wanted to open your suitcase you could no longer walk around the edge of the bed.  And don't get me started on the bathrooms!  No shower curtain!  No room to bend over so don't drop the soap!  

Now, let's fast forward a few days to our stop in San Diego.  We roll up to the Omni and a doorman leaps forward to open our door.  He asks if we want help with our bags, but is equally friendly when we opt to wrangle them ourselves.  We are quickly checked in, and make our way to the 14th floor.  We open the door and peer into VAST OPEN SPACE!  Granted, our expectations were drastically lowered by the Parisian hotel, but even so, the rooms here are spacious, comfy and luxurious.  The best part is that they give you free wi-fi access (something I no longer take for granted) and unlimited access to their gym (definitely appreciated).  I get so pissed when a hotel nickle-and-dimes you with internet and fitness charges when they're already charging plenty for the room...it just doesn't sit well with me.  So Omni's relaxed generosity with the little things (daily refills on the toiletries, endless supply of towels, DVD player in the room, etc.) makes a hugely positive impression.  

I love it here and the location is fantastic.  I found the Horton Plaza after wandering around the gaslamp district and then seeing a huge Nordstrom's sign like a mirage off to the left.  Best shopping ever!  Beautiful weather, beautiful people, I LOVE San Diego!  And I love staying at the Omni.  If we ever come back I hope we'll stay here.

first off! location location location! this place has a great location. right next to petco park, east facing rooms can have views into the ball park which is awesome, given they do concerts there as well. the best part of this property is by far the pool on the 6th floor, not too big, not too small, just right...nice views of the Coronado bridge and lower part of the city. they have a great little lunch menu for by the pool which is reasonably priced:) i had to cheese plate, 2 daquries and the total was 18 bucks plus tip...not too shaby if you ask me, given its a hotel and they could charge you an arm and a leg, but not here. Quality services and amenities for a Quality price.

LOVE this hotel! I was there about two years ago but it was just so awesome. The pool is on the top floor. It was so funny, my friend and I didn't have bathing suits and it was SO LATE at night that we jumped in in our underwear! Thank god they had towels because we ran to the hotel room soaking wet! Great customer service (and hot bell boys at the time too) haha! Very close to things that are walking distance (clubs, bars etc). Missing one star because I don't know how they are this year since I haven't been there in a while.

The Omni SD is a beautiful hotel. My boyfriend and I stayed here for his birthday, in which we reserved a room through Hotwire for $100. The staff is very friendly and hellpful. The pool area is gorgeous. Parking is overpriced, in my opinion, but it IS a convenience. Parking is the only set-back to a full five stars!

The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The view is amazing. The location is safe and is right next to a trolly stop, in walking distance of great restaurants and is across the street from the San Diego Convention Center. The surfer dude college kid staff could use some good customer service training (yes I look your age and/or younger than you, and yes I am a guest at your hotel - don't treat me otherwise).

Nice place.  The only bad part was that it is right above the railroad station and sometimes you think the conductor of the train is screwing with you by tooting that horn in the early morning repeatedly.  I always received good service here and never had problems.  I'd park in one of the parking lots up the block and avoid the $30/night parking fee.  I got legs, I'll use them.

You could do worse.  This hotel has a walk way connecting it to Petco Park, so that's a "plus".  The bar area on the second or third floor or whatever has an outdoor patio area that is pretty cool.  This is counterbalanced by the OUTRAGEOUS drink prices that equal a crowd that is either people in town for the evening or people in town for business. Locals, beware.

Occasionally the fiance and I decide to to the Gaslamp thing and we always hotwire a hotel for the night. A couple of weeks ago we found the Omni I think it was around $100 for the night including tax etc. Pretty good for a 4 star hotel downtown. Anyway they ask you to valet and its like 32 bucks but you can park your car yourself in the same garage they valet in across teh street for $17. No brainer there, but get cash because the garage only takes cash, they do have a convieniently located expensive ass atm on street level though. Anyway, check in was great. super quick got a really nice corner room. Very spacious. It smelled soooo good, like a spa or something. Bathroom with the shutters was a little wierd. We didnt have a remote though, not that we wanted to watch any tv. One thing I was a little pissed about is they say that the wireless internet is free but they charged us 10 bucks for it the next day. I was so hungover I didnt really want to argue so whatever. Overall a pretty good stay. Their restaurant sucks but I will review that seperately or maybe I already did....not sure. Wouldn't pay full price though.

There was a point during my stay at the Omni when I turned to my companion and said, "I just don't think I can stay at a regular hotel anymore."

The Omni was fabulous. The SD one is apparently very affordable, because, y'know, it's San Diego, but I don't know the specifics regarding finances because I stayed there for two nights in the Summer on my company's dime for the ACM SIGGRAAPH conference. (Oops, my inner nerd is showing. Pretend you didn't see that.) The Omni is right across the street and the trolley tracks (there's a station right there) from the Convention Center. It's across the street on the other side from the cute and fun Gaslamp area of Downtown San Diego. Since downtown SD is, oh, about the size of my thumbnail, all the action is within walking distance. Restaurants, bars, great shopping at Horton Plaza. Oh, right, and the conference I went to.

Aside from the convenience factor, the Omni was classy as hell. They decor was simple, yet luxurious in suble shades of mossy light green, off-white, and dark brown. I was in 1533, a corner room, which had two windows, one overlooking a part of downtown that is currently being built up and one overlooking Petco park! It would have been awesome if the Padres were actually in town. The beds were great: soft sheets and, most importantly, squishy pillows. The bathroom was super cool with the double rows of glass shelves in the corners and a crispy clean robe hanging up for you. There were almost no towel racks, but there were plenty of towels so you could just grab a new one everytime you needed it instead of hanging it up. That's kind of wasteful, but it's doable with the constant supply of fresh towels. The shower was nice. The bathroom has a sliding door that blocked out absolutely no noise and served little purpose, but was really cool from a design perspective. Oh, and did I mention that the bathroom was huge? The room was huge, too, but the bathroom was probably 1/3rd of the size of the sleeping area: AKA ginormous! The room service menu is average, but the service is so great, you'll hardly notice that your food was slightly salty. Oh, the internet is FREE and they deliver a USA Today to your door? (Yeah, the wireless internet is free in your room. Rare and welcome.)

Check out the pool area while you're there. It's really nice and they cocktail drinks to your little chaise lounge or patio chair while you lay out under the San Diego sun. Or, at least that's what I heard. When I used the pool, it was 1:30am and only for an hour before we got kicked out (the security guard was really nice about it). But it was damn nice even in the middle of the night.

It's true that parking is around $28 per day, but my job paid for it, so I won't let that take away from my overall experience.

The Omni isn't your average hotel. It kind of spoils you. Don't try it if you're not willing to splurge on hotels from now on. Like I said, "Once you go Omni...."

The Omni Hotel is a premier place to stay when visiting San Diego.  This was my first trip to San Diego and the Hotel did not disappoint.  Its a beautiful hotel right downtown by the baseball stadium, literally a block from the famous gas lamp district.  The amenities were great, the beds were extremely comfortable and they had an electronic thermostat to control the temperature in the room.  The only downside is that parking is 30 dollars a day and they don't have flat panel televisions.

This Omni is definitely the nicest one I've ever stayed at... hip, modern lobby, spacious modern room with lots of light and a big bathroom... and I would have probably given it a 4-star rating except for the fact that it is EXTREMELY loud, especially if you are facing Harbor Drive/the train tracks. On Thursday night we were woken up several times due to loud train horns, and on Friday night, we were treated to loud techno/rap music from the adjacent clubs. I'll blame Friday night on the fact that I'm now an old fart who hates going to the "clubbz", but a little warning during check-in would have been nice.

My go-to hotel in downtown SD. The Omni is located a few short blocks from all the restaurants and bars in Gaslamp. Easy access without all the noise. Perfect! I've had the pleasure of staying in rooms with an ocean view as well as a city view and both were fantastic. Sign up for their select guest program and you get complimentary beverages in the morning! The service is also top notch!

Had a short weekend excursion to San Diego and decided to stay at the Omni. The next time I'm back I'll definitely stay there again.  The service was great and the rooms are modern comfortable.  Throughout the hotel you will find sports memorabilia in glass cabinets as decor.  Our room overlooked the pool and had a view of the waterfront.  The pool area is well done with a lounge area just inside if you get too hot.  Best of all is it's location. Being right next to the Gaslamp Quarter, it is convenient to walk outside the hotel and begin exploring or to find a great restaurant.  We purchased tickets to the Padres knowing that the Omni is adjacent to Petco park.  There is an exclusive walkway for guests connecting the hotel to the ballpark. Total time from our hotel room to our seats walking was 5 minutes. At the bottom of the hotel is a McCormick and Schmick's restaurant which is convenient for a nice steak or seafood dinner.  Loved the Omni and everything it had to offer.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this property twice.  The latest visit was a week ago, and we purposely chose that week because it was available! The bed is comfy, service is great....be sure to sign up for the Omni loyalty program (free) to get free morning beverages, newspapers, wifi and turndown service.  They also have free refrigerators if you ask. The pool area is awesome...poolside service and they even bring you complimentary water....but I recommend a mojito!  The location is perfect....Petco, trolley, and Gaslamp literally a few steps outside your door. We could open our patio doors and hear the roar from the baseball game!! And check the consierge desk for free cookies :). Only complaints are the poor quality of the wifi, the tube non-HD tvs, and the bathroom set up.  Best property in SD.

Came down from San Francisco for a weekend trip of sun.  Beautiful weather.  This hotel is chic and clean, and conveniently and centrally located.  Nice pool area, but need more hotel staff out there.  Great pool-side bar staff.  Because of the lack of security and staff, we had a phone that got swiped from the pool area.  It woulda been no biggie, but this was an awesome Hong Kong Samsung phone.  Got up momentarily to order food at the bar, and it was gone by the time we got back to the pool.

Oh...their hotel sheets suck!  Clean, but rough like sand paper.  And feels even worse when you're sun burnt.  Ouch!!!

They just redid this Omni a few years ago and it's absolutely beautiful. San Diego is one of my favorite vacation spots and I always stay at the Omni. Beautiful hotel, comfortable rooms that have everything you could possibly need (even a dvd), a relaxing pool, and great service.  It's also right across from the convention center if you are going to San Diego for a work convention.

Omni is a clear example of not getting what you paid for, if you think you're getting luxury think again.  First off I talked the manager into getting a free upgrade, I tend to do that at every hotel, never hurts to ask right?  I was stocked when she said she was upgrading us to Premier room with a balcony on a top floor overlooking the bay.  Come to find out that the balcony is barely big enough for one person and the water view is really a view of the train tracks.  I still have to give her an A for effort and she was extremely helpful along with the rest of the staff.  Second don't even consider room service just go downstairs and pick it up yourself.  I paid $50 for eggs, hash browns and coffee.  Overall I would not stay here again nor would I recommend this hotel to anyone else, just stay at the W.

Great hotel. Very chic in a SoCal way. Great restaurant and bar and it's as close to Petco Park as you can get. The decor of the rooms is fantastic. Also, if you go to Priceline and ask for a 4 star in SD, you may get the Omni for $90. That's how I got there.

One of the best hotels I've stayed in....very modern and sort of like a W hotel, which I really like.  The location is also great, walking distance to the waterfront, gaslamp, ballpark, etc.

The only negative was that the bathroom door didn't work properly, but I guess I can let that slide....I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Price per day for parking is steep ($32.00).  Location is fantastic.  Hotel interior design takes a minimalist approach.  TV's in the rooms are still CRT (at least in the room I stayed in).  The restrooms in the room have louvered doors and 'windows' which don't allow for much privacy.  Only stayed one night, so didn't get a chance to peruse all the amenities.

Beautiful hotel, very friendly staff, great location, and it all added up to a wonderful vacation!  

The rooms are spacious, clean, and enjoyable.  The views are incredible!  Every room comes with bath robes which just adds to the experience.  In the morning we got a USA Today newspaper in front of our room.  

The only thing keeping me from giving the Omni five stars was the parking situation.  If you drive in, you have two options for parking.  Park in a downtown garage for around $18/day, but be prepared to pay it again if you exit then re-enter the garage.  That price can rise on baseball game days, since the hotel is right next to Petco Park.  The other option is to have the valet park it for $30/day.  With this option you do get unlimited enter/exit privileges, although you should tip the valet each time you do it.  This can get very pricey!  My wife and I spent an additional $100+ on parking that we were not counting on.  

All in all it was a wonderful experience, but just be aware that parking is expensive!!

I planned a big bachelorette party. The FRONT DESK was FANTASTIC! They receive an award for being so patient with me. I called and visited at least 4 to 5 times and they listened to my requests and did all that they could to make the whole reservation for 5 rooms. The front desk busted out a map and gave me ideas of great places to take the gals. They marked the clubs and bars on the map for me. The concierge helped me find a place to get balloons by calling for me. The bell attendant helped haul all our "girlie girl" stuff to our room and smiled the whole time. We went to the pool (8 of us gals) and had great pool chairs with big pool towels. There was a bar close to us and we ordered a salad that was quite delicious. Our pool attendant was super attentive and really nice. We were able to relax and have a good time. We loved our rooms which were clean, modern and had a fantastic view of 5th street and Petco Park as well as the facade of Hard Rock Hotel. I slept like a baby since the beds were comfy. I used hotel planner to get the 5 rooms and was able to secure a room for $140 which at that time in June of 2011, rooms were running $200 for almost all nice hotels in San Diego. I was very happy with staff, location and amenities. Great all around. Wish I could have stayed during a Padres game and walked across the bridge. Would have liked to have utilized the gym as well, but was happy to stay here because of the customer service!

Omni was awesome  to begin they upgraded us to Jr. suite for free without even asking because it was our wedding anniversary. Angelo the front desk supervisor was so nice. The other girl next to him who I forgot to ask her name was so wonderful as well. I tried to tip them but would not accept unfortunately. Few hours later they surprised us with bottle Gloria Ferrier Sparkling wine and chocolate covered strawberries with personalized note from Omni SD Team . To make our experience even better they gave us complimentary beverage in the morning like coffee juice or tea. The location was awesome it was 2 blocks from gaslamp and 500 ft from the trolley gives you access to little italy and seaport village. Overall we will back for baseball season they have access bridge right into petco park. We would definitely recommend this hotel to couples , family or just great weekend getaway without paying arm and leg. The only bad side was the restaurant Mc Cormick and Schmick cocktails were awful my vodka  martini tasted like soap water ....yuck.

Nice hotel. Simple and modern decor. Reminiscent of a W, but not as luxurious. Great location too. However, when you consider the price, which is just as high or even higher than a W, it's not 5 star material.

The restaurant hotel is a McCormick & Schmick, which is a semi-upscale seafood chain. Like the hotel, it's very nice, but nothing to write home about.

Update
======================
If you are a baseball fan, this hotel is awesome - 5-stars. The hotel is physically connected to Petco Park, the first (and only?) such hotel in the country. From my room, I could see the outfield (albeit just a strip in the right field), and hear the game very well. If you like baseball, definitely go to a game while staying at the Omni. It's so convenient.

WOW!! This place is absolutely incredible!! We stayed here while the San Diego Padres were palying the San Francisco Giants (Go Giants!) and the atmosphere was amazing!

Very clean, great room service, amazing view (get the rooms facing the water) and it doesn't get any easier getting to and from Petco Park. Make sure to hit up the Happy Hour before the games at McCormick and Schmicks downstairs in the lobby (super good happy hour deals).

Only downside (but Im sure Im the only moron that doesn't no this stuff), be ready to spend a pretty penny on parking and tiping. Stayed a week and it got really expensive.

Overall, this place is the best Hotel I've ever stayed at!

This hotel is great.  I've stayed here three times always book through priceline, always under $100 a night.  The rooms are nice and modern, sometimes you get a view, and the staff is friendly.  I've never parked here, too expensive..Overall I highly recomend this place.

This was my first time staying at the Omni...for the most part it was beautiful, the room was very nice and we had a great view of the bay and the Coronado Bridge, the staff was exceptionally great and being next to PetCo Park, the Gas Lamp District and the Convention center was great too. The only cons and they are minor, was the parking, the hotel charges $32 a day but across the street the public parking is $16. The next time I will use the pub. parking. For women the bathroom was really nice but one wall uses shudders for privacy and this maybe uncomfortable for some...

Stayed at the Omni hotel during memorial day weekend.  Not sure if I would stay there again but here are the pros and cons.

Pros:  
1.  Check-in and Check-out was extremely easy and fast.  They made a mistake on our bill, but that was resolved within 10 minutes or so.

2.  Dog Friendly.  They allow dogs in their hotel.  This was a huge plus for me and my wife.  The front desk, bell hops, and valets made our dog feel welcome and loved.

3.  Location (this is also listed under cons).  Being in the Gaslamp district this allowed us to pretty much walk and enjoy SD without having to drive anywhere.  Good access to the local shops and restaurants.

4.  Rooms (this is also listed under cons).  Room size is about what I expected.  The rooms were clean and their were plenty of towels, covers etc.. for 2 people and a dog.

5.  The staff are courteous and quick to respond (if possible).  I never had to wait very long for the valet to pull up my car or for a bellhop to help me with my bags.  The concierge and staff also suggested some nice restaurants for us to try.

6.  Free Internet by signing up for their loyalty guest program.  This was a definite plus.  We we're also supposed to get drinks served to our room in the morning, bottled water upon check in and a newspaper every morning, but none of those ever showed up).

7.  Exercise Room:  The fitness room is a good size has plenty of equiment (about 4 elipticals, 5 treadmills, a couple of exercise/spinning bikes, and some weight lifting equipment (free weights and machines) all of which were in very good condition.  They have antibacterial wipes available, clean towels, water and headphones.  There are also 2 LCD TV's so you can keep you're mind busy as you exercise.

Cons:
1.  Noise.  This is my BIGGEST complaint about staying at the Omni.  They know that one side of the hotel faces the Hard Rock 207 Club.  They know that the Hard Rock 207 Club is going to play loud music with heavy base until 2 AM in the morning, and yet, even though they know all of this, they still book us a room that is pretty much overlooking the club.  I asked for a quiet room at check-out, I reiterated this when I signed up for their "select guest loyalty" program, I also reminded them to place us in a quiet room when we checked in and they still put us in that god awful room.  There were apparently no available rooms so moving us didn't occur till the following morning.  Suffice to say, having my request (X3) ignored about a quiet room is a big negative.  They did comp us a $50 voucher which we used for breakfast at McCormick and Schmit which apparently is what a good night sleep is worth.

2.  Parking.  Parking is $32 a night.  You can park across the street (where the valet's park you're car) for about 1/2 that, but when we showed up the Padre's were playing at Petco Park so the parking garage was full so I ended up valeting at the hotel for the first night.  

3.  Rooms.  The walls are thin.  We had a snorer in the adjacent room and that kept my wife up on our second night there.  2 sleepless nights really takes a toll on you.

4.  Pool gets busy.  The pool was packed for most of the weekend.  The Omni did a beautiful job with their pool, they just need more seating (patio chairs etc...).  

Overall if it weren't for the noise I would of given this place 4-5 stars.  It is a stones throw from alot of fun places and good restaurants.  The staff are all very curteous and the accept dogs.  The noise issue however was more than just an annoyance.  2 nights of not getting enough sleep really makes it hard to say I would stay here again.

Really great staff!  I wasn't staying at this hotel but I strolled in with my BF on my birthday and asked if we could view the city from the rooftop and they were nice enough to chaperone us to the private rooftop with a pool and an amazing view!  I would definitely like to go back and stay here.  Great customer service!

Great location, espcially if you are attending an event at Petco Field. Clean, modern...typical Omni. There is a dedicated entrance to Petco, which really helps if you are totally hung over and need to take a nap during the 4th inning.
McCormack and Schmidts in the lobby is an added plus.

Very nice hotel in the heart of san diego.  Half a block from petco park.  There is a nice seafood restaurant in the lobby, McCormick's so that is very convinient.  The room service is ok- but in the middle of the night where are you going get food.  The rooms are very modern and spacious.  Very comfortable.  They need to upgrade TVs tho-  CRT still and the tubs are small.  The linens and bed are comfy and I would go back anytime.

I've stayed at the Omni twice for Comic-Con, and both experiences have been top notch.

I am not a hotel snob.  All I really need is a bed and a bathroom, and I'm all set.  But the Omni is one of the nicer rooms with a bed and a bathroom that I've ever stayed in.  

The room decor is very cool and modern, particularly the bathroom with funky glass shelves.  The bathroom also had slats that could be opened between the bathroom and the bedroom area.  Why you would want to do this is beyond me, unless you are staying in the room by yourself.  It's neat, but not very functional.  

We had a room above the pool area, with a beautiful view of the bay.

And the bed!  The bed was super-comfortable, with soft bedding and mushy pillows.

The location is fantastic, right across from the convention center and right at the entrance to the Gas Lamp district.  Wonderful restaurants, bars, shops all in walking distance.

Parking was a little pricey.  They only offer valet parking (with in-and-out privileges) for $26 per 24-hour period.  ZOMG GOUGE.

I will definitely try to get reservations here again for next year's Comic-Con.

I am in love with this hotel! I was so close to home so nothing was really new (I live in Central San Diego and used to live in Downtown,) but staying at the Omni felt more like a weekend retreat. The color scheme in the room was so-fresh-and so-clean! Very spa like. I recommend the breakfast buffet- all organic and super fresh.
I have stayed in many hotels in many parts of the world but this hotel beats them all. The cherry on top was the awesome price I got from priceline.

I wanted to do a staycation and I decided why not stay at one of the prettiest hotels and my I say highly graded hotels in SD, so I stayed at the Omni.  Being on the outskirts of downtown was nice, I had a lovely view, and when the housekeeping person assigned to my room found out it was my birthday...she left me champaign and chocolate covered strawberries.  I tipped large due to the sweet gestures, and I even wrote them a thank you note.  I would like to know what it is like when there is a baseball game going on, but I have yet to find that out.  You do have to pay for parking and there are other city and tourism taxes, but that is like any other place you stay at.  I do wish you didn't have to pay for parking if you decide to stay at the hotel, until they give me justification of why they can't just wave that fee...you're not getting the highest ranking.  But it is very lovely, I really think the view of the bay is what did it justice for me.

just an absolutely wonderful hotel. Literally steps away from petco park, they even have their own entrance to it, and in the gas lamp district, what more can you ask for?

the rooms are big and the service is great. They have wireless Internet access (which BTW, is what I am using to write this review as we speak.) There is a $10 charge usually for access, but I'm not sure if people realize the perks you get with preferred guest status with all omni's, and one would be free Internet access, and the other would be 5pm check out, a 50% off coupon, and a free upgrade coupon. and the price for preferred guest you ask? FREE!!

highly recommend this and all omni's.

We had a room on the 19th floor, with bay view. The views are absolutely amazing. wow!!

This hotel was amazing.  I was blown away by the staff that always went out of their way and seemed to anticipate your needs.  The restaurant and pool were nice and very much on par with the rest of the hotel.  I loved being located so close to the Gaslamp district and the ball field.  If you have tickets to the game you can get there by the walkway that is connected to the hotel.  Other hotel managers should stay at the Omni so they can see how it should be done!

By God's luck we got to stay at this hotel during Comic-Con in 2009 (I say this because trying to get a descent hotel close to the convention center during Con is a nightmare rat race!)!  This was our first choice as it's right across the street, and we were extremely happy with the Omni.  The rooms were beautiful and spacious, and we had a view right over Petco park, so we were even able to catch a Padres game free of charge!  Great location, great service, highly recommended!

what can I say - class through and through.  good location in gaslamp, well designed lobby and bar, staff is friendly and helpful, clean rooms with a great view.  just missed the 5-star mark because the bathroom design was inspired by a dojo.  Believe me, if I wanted to take a shit in 19th century Japan, I'd find a more economical way to make that happen. The sliding doors don't actually close (!!) and the paper-thin walls are just unforgiving, making any trip to the commode a tense moment for all parties involved.  hope you're comfortable with your loved one..

I went to the Omni for the first time on mother's day for a family brunch and wasn't impressed. The buffet didn't have much and what was there, didn't taste as great as what we had hoped it would. It was the regular egg, omelet, and sausage. Plus it was expensive, $29 per person :[ Would not come back again.

Let me begin by saying that I am a hotel snob.

I really liked this hotel. I got a really good deal off of Travelzoo and after arriving at the hotel I realized how great of a deal I got.

The lobby is nice, the service was great, the gym was excellent. Each machine had its own flat screen TV, there were towels, fresh fruit and cold water.

The room was beautiful and the bathroom was fab. I will definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Omni Hotel for a week while I was visiting a client in San Diego. I'm giving it four stars because I wasn't  able to experience all of the amenities and nothing really jumped out as being superior. That said, the hotel stay was pleasant and I didn't really have any issues with the place other than maybe the lack of a fan in my bathroom. We booked our tickets through Priceline and got an amazing deal of $82 per room, so I didn't really have an issue when they gave me a smoking room.

The room was clean and the view was great. I had a queen size bed and a large window that offered a beautiful view of the downtown skyline and partial views of the marina and of Petco field.

The hotel is located next to Petco field and only a few minutes away from the Gaslamp Quarter, which made it very convenient to go out at night. For people who enjoy running, it's really close to a nice pathway that runs alongside the train tracks as well as another path that runs along the marina.

It's a good place to stay but it wasn't anything to write home about. I'd definitely stay here again and I'd have to check out the swimming pool and work out facilities.

Stayed for the Cinco De Mayo weekend. Staff was incredible and the views from our room were spectacular. Close to all going on in the Gaslamp. We will stay there again. Previous reviews talked about the dinosaur television sets in rooms, well if that was the only knock on this place, fine by me. Was told they are in the process of replacing those sets. Besides, did not have time to watch tv, too much good times outside of hotel. Trolly station right outside of hotel, takes you anywhere in town.

Nicely located a block from the waterfront with great places to run...the hotel was nice and clean and the room sizes were a good size with plenty of room to kick back and hang out.  

The staff was great.  Very helpful on all spectrums:
1. Internet access: free if you sign up for their free select guest membership
2. We forgot our cell charger and they had a basket full of them..
3. free breakfast drinks with select guest
4. happy hour downstairs!!
5. Free fitness center with fruit.

I'd definitely look into staying at this hotel again if i make it down to SD again..!

Wow! This is such a nice hotel (mind you, I'm really used to hostels and cheap, cheap hotels - so it doesn't take a lot to impress me). But seriously, it felt so clean that I didn't feel afraid to sit on the bed. The bathroom was huge (and clean).

Plus they have a wonderful conference facility and really friendly staff, from the waiter to the bell hop. Also, this is a great location - right next to the baseball stadium and the convention center. On the trolley, so you can go to the waterfront or little Italy and in the Gaslamp district.

Overall: at $170 per night, it ain't cheap, but you can rest assured that your sheets are clean and sleeping in a great location.

Came here because my mom had stayed and said it was a great place with very nice rooms so I decided to book online-no problem there.  Ordered the ROMANCE PACKAGE and that consisted of champagne, strawberries, rose petals decked out in the room and breakfast in bed.
Check in was good the reception desk personal were very nice.  Got up to the room and discovered a beautiful view of Coranado. Very very nice! Needless to say we never made it to breakfast the next day so we opted for the resturaunt where we were seated right then and we ordered our fave-champagne and cranberry! Muy deliciousio!! I just opted for the classic breakfast, eggs, potatoes, toast and bacon it was all great as was the TERRIFIC service! Our waiter rocked!  Our vouchers were for $50 each we tried to drink it away after we'd already had breakfast and a few drinks-we couldn't!  I was getting a buzz from the champagne, don't think I wasn't disappointed in myself!

Feelin' ballerific? Stay at the Omni.

Regular rates for the omni is about $260+ a night. But thanks to priceline.com , it was about $150 a night through the bidding. I know some people has gotten insanely cheap deals here for around $100 (and I am jealous), but seriously, I would pay $150/night for this bomb diggity hoteezy.

My opinion, BEST location in downtown SD. It's literally connected to Petco Park (you can see part of the field through the hotel, there is also a walkway INTO the field. It's also only 2 SHORT blocks away from the Gaslamp District.

The pool, it's nice, only 3 1/2 feet all the way around. It has a nice jacuzzi on the side. Nothing too spectacular, but still pretty nice. There's a view of the SD Convention Center from the pool area.

The only thing that was disappointing was the cost to Valet your car. $30/night? That's killer! Apparently it USED to be $26/night, but they've raised the price. I really didn't know where else to park, so I didn't have a choice.

Their concierge service is excellent, they accommodated every need, and always went the extra mile to help us find our way around SD or just to make us feel like a valued guest. We even got a complimentary fruit bowl one morning thanks to Rebbecca.

Everything was absolutely perfect.

Great room. Great location if you are going to Padres, Convention center or going to Gaslamp for the night. I live in San Diego and got a room because we were going out drinking for my birthday and didn't want to have to drive. Room was very nice with a great view. The minibar was pricey and avoided. The BATHROOM EVEN HAD A VIEW! The highlights were the view, location (close to everything) and the price. Got a deal at what seemed about 40% off the listed rate. Valet was $35! You can park at the parkade across the street for $20. VERY short walk and you don't have to wait while they fetch your car. The carpets in the hall on the 19th floor were dirty. Drip trails and various black spots. The room and room carpet were clean but I was surprised the hall carpets were so dirty. The bed room had blinds which didn't keep much light out in the morning. If you like it dark when you wake up you might have to inquire about a room that has drapes. Our room had just windows but I could see others with small balconies which I would like to see. Wouldn't keep me from returning at the right price.

On a recent trip to San Diego for work I found the Omni on Priceline in a fit of last-minute desperation. I haven't stayed in downtown San Diego very much, and I think I'll actually try to stay here more - way more conducive to going out. And drinking. Which I actually don' t need to do more of...

Anyway, the Omni is a huge skyscraper of a hotel - 21 stories in all. The room was huge - I had to laugh when I compared it to a hotel room in London - literally about 5x the size. Unfortunately they gave me a handicap-accessible room with a handicap-accessible shower that sprayed water across the whole bathroom and lacked a bathtub completely. I really missed it - with the cold weather that week I really wanted a bath to soak in.

I also felt that the service in the hotel was really inconsistent. Sometimes the door would be opened for me, sometimes they would great me by name - but sometimes it was sorely lacking.

The bed was huge but not especially comfortable - it really makes me appreciate my bed at home, which seems more luscious every day. The Internet cable was broken and the wireless was too weak to get any work done - when I called them for a new one they never came. Meh.

Frequent business travelers will probably agree with me that sometimes you just don't care enough to complain. I didn't have the energy to move into a new room, or wait on the phone to speak with management - I just wanted things to be right the first time.

Summary? I would stay there again, but only if I got a great deal on Priceline (and in that case I wouldn't have chosen it anyway).

Really, anything attached to Petco Park is blessed by the gods in my mind. I stayed here during Street Scene '08 weekend since my friend was down on business and had a free room (yay corporate cards!). I'd always been a bit in awe of the place so I was beyond stoked to get to stay there.

To start - the parking is crazy expensive - use the lot across the street and save at least half your wallet's worth. The rooms are huge and comfy and the view we had of Coronado was to die for! My only qualm was the creepy shuttered no-wall bathroom. Granted, it was huge and gorgeous as well, but c'mon! Can't a girl have a little privacy and quiet time while she's... you know....? Eh whatever - I took it in stride - loud and proud.

In the end, the Hard Rock might be more my speed (i.e. the bar needs to be at least 10 steps away at all times), but I'd still definitely recommend the Omni to those business or vacation types who hit SD to chill and get great service.

Just like any business, your experience with that business depends on the employees working there. In this case, concierge Justin Sondgeroth went above and beyond to make our stay a great one, helping with the rental of a limo for my wife and my first wedding anniversary - and then had a bottle of champagne sent to our room, without it even being requested. That kind of customer service goes a long way - we'll definitely be back as a result.

A really great hotel with EXCELLENT service and a great location. The hotel is very clean, as are the rooms. The little store downstairs in the lobby sells Starbucks coffee and the on-site restaurant is McCormick & Schmick's.

They have an on-site fitness center - nothing special but it's adequate and clean. Each cardio machine had it's own TV and looked pretty new. The pool is also decent.

The only thing we didn't like much were the beds and pillows. Not really comfortable at all as compared to say the Hilton.

Oh..and they have 24 hour room service....which was a blessing after a long night of partying!

I too took advantage of Priceline's unbeatable deals, and stayed over on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.  I didn't go anywhere for summer b/c of the price of gas and a major move, so Labor Day  weekend was my last hurrah before school.  

I enjoyed our stay thoroughly, up to the two extra hours they allowed us for late checkout.  The pool is small but inviting (no deep end, though).  The location is perfect for strolling through the Gaslamp district, or making the quick dash to Ralphs, or shopping for a spare bathing suit at Horton Plaza.  The Omni is as child-friendly as a hotel can be, giving out free backpacks stuffed with little games and a sippy cup entitling the child to free drink refills at McCormick and Schmidt.  Service was quick and courteous.

My only quibble is that $30 for overnight parking is outrageous, but you can get around that by parking in the ACE structure right across the street for $8.

Our winter break will be at the Omni.

Very kid friendly!  I stayed there with my 5 year old son and they gave him a "gift" upon arriving.  The rooms had plenty of space and were very clean.  The customer service was excellent!  The room service food (pizza) was out of this world good!  The only draw back was the cost of valet parking:  $35 a night.  There is a parking garage right across the street for half of that cost.  Also the food was expensive but well worth it! The location is good, within driving distance to attractions and walking distance to restaurants.  The beds are heavenly!  You will get a good night's sleep!

HANDS DOWN, one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in (especially compared to all those Budget Inns I stayed in when I was road trippin' back in college!).  I stayed in San Diego for an AFP conference and received a complimentary upgrade to a suite - lucky me!  The room was huge, clean and gorgeous.  My own personal balcony overlooked the heated outdoor pool (but no one was really sunbathing or hanging out since it was pretty cold).  I also was on the same floor of the gym that thankfully opened at 5 a.m.

Other pluses?  The Omni has a sky way that connects to Petco Field!  I don't like the Padres, but I love baseball so I couldn't resist a game.  Room service was excellent, the hotel store has a Starbucks, and downtown is literally at your finger tips.  An excellent choice if you need to overnight it in downtown San Diego!

I have to say that the location of this hotel is just perfect. It's walking distance to the gaslamp and to the stadium (duh! it's connected lol). The hotel is beautiful from the outside and in.

The rooms always have the fresh clean smell. They provide all of the necessities needed. The Hard Rock restaurant is right accross the street and Nobu is a new restaurant there also.

I highly recommend this hotel. They have wireless. The pool is nice  and clean also and opened late. =)

I luuurrrrve this Omni.  I've stayed in several different Omni's in the country, and this is my favorite.  The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are gorgeous and modern with nice spa-style amenities.  The free Wi-Fi makes it great for both business and leisure travelers.

McCormick and Schmick's is the in-house restaurant, and open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  There is also a small coffee bar place for a quick cuppa joe in the mornings.  This is the perfect hotel at which to stay when you're attending something at the convention center - it's literally across the street!  It's also just steps to everything in the Gaslamp.

Only reasons for it not being 5 stars - the damn price (at nearly $400/night when I stayed here!) and the proximity to the train tracks.  The trains can wake you up in the middle of the night out of a dead sleep.

Pro tip:  Ask for room 1833, 1933, or 2033 for a spectacular view into Petco park along the 3rd base line!

My first time staying at an Omni, and it was ridiculously relaxing. I liked that they remember you and say "welcome back!" and offer to help you with the loads of shopping bags that you accumulated in Horton Plaza and the Gaslamp.

Every night my sister and I would go swimming in the heated pool, and then melt into the jacuzzi for a good fifteen minutes after. We'd stare at the night sky, sigh, and exclaim "This is the life!" The mini-gym and such looked clean also, if that's your kinda thing on a vacation.

The rooms had such beautiful decor as well. I was a fan of the smooth wood panels and the fresh green sheets. Everything was so clean, I even dared walk barefoot on the carpet! Sure, the shower and sink drains were a little slow, and I wish they had filtered water so I could refill my Sigg and not pay $6 for an Evian, but there was also fast internet and free newspaper weekday mornings. I generally had everything I needed and slept pretty well for not being in my own bed.

The location is not ideal though, for those who are planning on driving around. Cost of valet parking is nooo bueno, but you'll have to pay for it considering the traffic and parking in the evenings is horrendous.

Overall, Omni made my stay in SD very relaxing and pleasant. I'd come back.

Great location, nice gym, cool pool, and great perks if you join the Omni hotel program!

The only negative is that there are a couple plugs that doesn't work in the room and expensive valet parking. Walking one block north of the hotel and you will see a parking garage at about $16 a day.

Over all it's a lovely place to stay and if you can get high enough you can look into the ball park!

in past two years, all my close friends (except two) decided that they were all going to leave the singledom and enjoy the doubledom (aka. marriage).
the beautiful bride-to-be (my friend of 14 years) requested (actually more like pleaded)  no vegas for her bachlorette party. we made an objection to her request. we kicked and screamed and whinned but at the end, she won and we headed to sd. the whole weekend was....well, who says you need to go to vegas to have a crazy time?!

now about the hotel...
great location--in the heart of gaslamp quarter  and by the sd bay
free high-speed internet access available "hi, my name is hannah and i am a lap-top-oholic." yes, i took my laptop to my buddy's bridal shower. yes, i was on yelp searching for places.
luxerious rooms with comfy beds and clean sheets
competent and attentitve staff

only downer was the parking. to valet park, it was about $30/day with in and out privileges. nearby public parking was about $15/day without re-entry privilages.

When in San Diego stay at the Omni or the Hilton Gaslamp.
Perfect location, close to the airport, next to the stadium (with private walkway into the park for guests), and right next to the convention center.

The hotel never has treated me wrong, the last time I was there they upgraded me to a suite on the house upon checkin. Not too shabby.

Happy Hour at the joint downstairs in the bar area gets you 1.99 1/2lb cheeseburger w/ fries and the fixings.

Parking, if you have a guest valet and charge to your room, look at bill upon checkout, they assume you had a car there your whole stay and will fix upon call.

I am spoiled. I am used to getting comped or very low rates for the best resorts... yes, I go to Vegas A LOT.
But yes, this is San Diego and yes, this is THE hotel to stay at Downtown... you couldnt ask for a better location, walked to all the bars/restaurants in Gaslamp form there.
So when I got the Omni via Hotwire.com for a Saturday for only $100 I was excited as I could be, score!
1 star less because of the ludacriz charge of $30 for valet.. whaaaat?!

Very nice staff. Upscale hotel. Great rooms!! Recommended if you're going to stay in or near downtown San Diego because it's a bit of a pain to drive in and out. The parking options are limited and expensive if you valet with the hotel.
Great pool area but always crowded. Great gym.

The Omni Hotel is located at the south end of the Gaslamp district in San Diego. It is directly attached to Petco Park (where the San Diego Padres play) by a sky bridge from the 4th floor. This hotel is also close to the convention center, maybe a 5-10 minute walk. The hotel itself seems modern contemporary and I do not think it has been renovated in a while but nevertheless it looks great and is in very good condition.

Checking in and out was very easy and the staff was accommodating. There is a McCormick's & Schmidt's in the ground floor. The valet is very small but the staff there do well. It has the usual amenities you would expect: business center, fitness center, pool etc.

The standard room was typical size with either a city or bay view. The room design was again modern contemporary and was nicely put together. The bed and linen were comfortable. One thing is they still have old standard TVs, no flat screen and no HD. Bathroom was nice with an interesting sliding glass door.

The elevators were very slow and a little small for 4 elevators they had. I ended up taking the service elevator one night since someone had puked in the elevator and they could call another one. So manager took me through the kitchen to the service one.

As for price, you are paying for location. You are close to the action but the hotel is nice so it may be worth it to you.

One drawback was it location. If there is a game when you are trying to get to or from here, you will have to go through a maze of street closures and one way streets so be prepared. Best route would be coming down 6th St. right into the valet.

Overall, a nice place to stay within walking distance to plenty of entertainment and the convention center.

This was a slight splurge for us...although not a bad price on hotels.com .  Great location next to Petco Park, although from our balcony we could not quite see down into the park.  Very efficient and friendly front desk staff.  The hotel elevators are very convenient right next to the main check in and directly inside the lobby.

Added convenience of the McCormick & Schmick's in the lobby, although anyone in their right mind ought to be venturing out for something more unique in Gaslamp.  

Only very small drawback is the small turn in area for unpacking your car.  Valet is expensive here ($32/night), so I'd recommend parking it yourself across the street (incidentally the same structure the hotel uses).

Pool and hot tub looked great, too bad we didn't have time to enjoy them.

My wife and I spent last Sunday night at the Omni...

First, we got a great rate on priceline.com , $122.00 for the night for a King size bed.  You can't beat that.  The room was nice with a view of the Coronado Bridge and the 6th floor pool area.  The staff was great, I thought I might have the priceline.com tag on my head and I would be treated like a 2nd class citizen, but that was NOT the case.  

I appreciated that the Omni was focused on the customer, every employee was very hospitable.  

We showed up right when a Padres game was starting, so there was alot of traffic and activity, but we drove right up and were handled by the valet guys and ushered right in to register. Being right next to Petco Park made for an exciting environment.

The restaurant was nice, check out that review, and the pool was nicely heated and available for lap swimming.  

The Gaslamp Quarter is blocks away, so it made for a nice walk on a summer night.  

We can't wait to go back.

Omni San Diego Hotel has many parallels to dating or better yet, a bad one nightstand. Here, let me explain. Aesthetically, from the outside it looks great. You are easily attracted by the glimmer and flashy lights. You think, "Wow, what a sexy hotel! And look, in prime location in the Gaslamp District!" You go in and are greeted by a nice staff and you think to yourself, "Cool, this seems nice, I think I may like it here. Plus, you can't beat the price!" Then you go up to the room, you're overly excited because you are curious to see what this room is going to look like (think of it as you're going in second base). You noticed the bedroom is nicely manicured and the bathroom is cute. As excited as you are you start going through everything, as you would if you were just plain excited about seeing anything as AWESOME in short amount of time span, you begin rummaging through everything: drawers, closet, cabinets, including the "Welcome Guest Service Menu!" You notice that bathroom door is frosted sliding glass door to cover yourself. OK - awkward if you were to have roommate... moving forward. Then you progress towards the entertainment  cabinets to find an old TV tube set from 1997? WTH - is this crap? Is this even legal? But before you can even think about leaving you figure might as well just hop into bed and make the best out of it. You do it.

It's 12am and you're tossing and turning in the bed. The bed is HARD as a rock, you start to think that friendly staff that greeted you downstairs seriously put freakin' pea underneath your mattress! Jerks! You figured, "Heck, I'll try to sleep this out." 4am, you're awake AGAIN! You have to give yourself self chiropractic adjustment because the bed is frigged HARD. 7am, F-it... might as well just be awake. Get up and tell them you had great time and leave!

Don't even think about eating there... the food is CRAP. The Marriott has better hotel foods. Only positive about the Omni San Diego Hotel is the McCormick and Schmick's Happy Hour. Happy Hours M-F 3:30 to 6:30pm and take advantage of their $1.99 quarter pound Angus burger... then run over to Marriott (because you have history with it and it's reliable) or Se San Diego or W Hotel (because it's sexier and still fun).

I go to San Diego a lot for little weekend getaways and always love trying new hotels in the gaslamp district. This is the first time I stayed at the Omni and I absolutely loved it. The hotel was VERY clean, the staff was friendly, the rooms were really nice, and some rooms even had a view of the stadium. The bridge into the stadium is always nice if your going to the game. I will definitely come back again. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because they lack a spa. Would've been nice but nothing to complain about.

My daughter was auditioning for American Idol at Petco Park, so we price searched a nearby room.  I was so happy the Omni came up as best pricing, because it was walking distance!  Our room was nice and clean.  The  staff was friendly and helpful.  The most important thing to report is that I went down to McCormick's to get food and drinks, and I  left my purse at the bar.  I had a lot of cash in my wallet.  I didn't even realize I left it down there.  Within a short amount of time, I received a call from security, letting my know they found my purse.  All of the cash was still in the wallet! That could have gone any number of ways, but thanks to the HONEST restaurant and security people, it went the best way possible!  Thank you, Omni hotel staff and security!  I'll never forget!

Every few years I'm down here for a conference at the SD Convention Center.  In August I stayed here. I sorta regretted booking my room as I'm still in my 20s!! Should of stayed at the Hard Rock across the street, BUT I was glad! 1 reason, 1 reason only! Carne Asada Fries Poolside!!

I was quite surprised.  I knew the Omni had great service and great rooms. The location is also great to the convention center and all the bars near by.  Not forget the walkway to Petco park if you have tickets, which I did, a suite to be exact, not brag. Anyways back to the Hotel... Its the only hotel I've stayed in SD that served my beloved Carne Asada fries!! They added a twist in that its crinkle cut fries and not the typical fries.  It was BOMB!! right amount of meat, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salsa.. yum! Makes me salivate just thinking about it.

The pool is a semi roof top, and its great place to chill.  They also have the local microbrew on tap if your a beer drinker.

All in all it was a great spot to stay, eat, and play!

I've stayed here a couple times and have to say, both times were excellent!! The staff is super friendly, the hotel is walking distance from everything (including a walkway to the ballpark), the rooms are beautiful and clean, the bed is super comfy and the pool is nice and quaint with lots of good sun.

If you are in town for a conference, THIS is the hotel you want to be at. It's the closest to the Convention Center entrance which allows for about 15 extra minutes of sleep in the morning...SCORE!!

During my last stay I had the unfortunate experience of a red wine spillage on white pants. I took them to the front desk and they had them cleaned and returned to me in about 10 hours for only $12. They looked better than new when I got them back. Now that's service!!

We reserved the Oh La La package for our one-night stay to celebrate our anniversary through the hotel's website about two months in advance.  When we arrived to our room, the sparkling wine, macarons, and petit-fours which were described in the package were not in our room.  We immediately called the desk, who sent us to the restaurant, who sent us to the manager.  45 minutes after we arrived in our room, the items had still not arrived so we went out for dinner.  On our way out, we confirmed with the front desk that the items would be there on our return.  Once we came back to the room several hours later, the sparkling wine and snacks were still not there.  Additionally, the turn down service had not happened.  We called again, and about 45 minutes later, a staff member finally came (at this point, it was almost 11 pm) with the sparking wine, macarons, and petit-fours.  He spent quite a while trying to cover his own ass to us.

At every step of the process, we were shuffled from one staff member to another and everyone kept making excuses about how the package amenities should be there.  I agree that they should have been there.  They were not.  I am not interested in the reason why it wasn't there because nothing was there when it was supposed to be.

We were offered a $25 voucher for McCormick & Schmick's for the total failure of the hotel to provide us with the services we paid for.  I appreciated the gesture, but seeing as we were only staying for one day and had already had breakfast through the resaurant as part of the package, the voucher really fell short of making up for the incompetence and uneccessary excuse-making.

We will not be staying at that hotel, or likely any other Omni hotel ever again.

I give 4 stars with an asterisk. I experienced a problem. I have advised them of the problem. How they handle the problem will determine my total satisfaction with this hotel.

The problem - I had to cancel a reservation for a business associate and did so 5 days prior to her arrival. Because I did not cancel 7 days prior to her arrival, as per hotel policy, I was charged full price for a 2 day hotel stay ($488). I understand policies. I have policies in my business. BUT...if my policies substantially interfere with my customers' satisfaction, I either make an exception or change the policy. As I said, I have advised them of the problem and we will see how they handle it. If they handle it well, I may be an Omni customer for life. If they don't, then I go scorched Earth on their ass! I know...I should have called this hotel direct to cancel rather than using the national toll free number. Oh well, live and learn.

Given the pre-stay problems, I was fully expecting a horrible experience. I was wrong. They exceeded most all my expectations. They accommodated my special requests. The hotel staff was exceptional - top to bottom. I've stayed at 5-star hotels (Ritz, Mandarin, 4 Seasons) that didn't have people as well trained and hospitable as they were here.

The rooms were nice. The bathrooms were cool but not functional. The sink and cabinet area was ill conceived. The bathtub/ shower was on a par with Motel 6. The sliding, opaque bathroom door is a really bad idea.

If I get my problem resolved, I would highly recommend this place but when they say they have a 7 day cancellation policy...they mean it!

Although I was unfortunately in San Diego to "work", let me briefly detail a few highlights from my recent stay at the Omni.

First and foremost, location is king, and this hotel is situated at the front door of the "Gas Lamp" district. Any and all trouble you want to discover downtown, is within walking distance from the front door.

But you can't reap the rewards of the location until you actually check in, which is what I did with a new employee in training and her manager that Thursday morning. Both were very helpful, and even semi encouragingly looked at me when I jokingly, yet very politely requested a room with a view.... Following a questionable look from new employee to manager, the manager smiled with approval, pointed to the screen in front of them, and the room was secured. Which room and where, I had no idea, but felt good about it.

Up I went to the 15th floor, not to the top, but I figured still high enough to see over the buildings. Walked off the elevator and in the direction I knew faced the San Diego Bay, hoping that my room was located in that general direction. In fact, it was, and not just that, but located on the corner of the hotel. This meant only one thing, and when I opened the door to my very spacious home away from home for the next 4 days, had not only a brilliant view of the San Diego Bay, but my own porch over looking downtown San Diego, the "Gas Lamp" district, and Petco Park....... View aside, the room was very clean, equipped with a king bed, desk, chair, TV, and a trendy almost Hotel W style open bathroom.

They also have a nice pool, and a clean operational fitness center. Whether you are attending a convention or just visiting, I would highly recommend the Omni. Ask for a room with a view......

I love this hotel. It's so pretty and has amazing views. It's also got a great location. You can leave and wander around the Gaslamp Quarter to your hearts content. It is also located right next to (and connects to) the stadium.

Comfy beds, and tastefully decorated rooms. I even like the bathrooms with their pedestal sink and wood shelves. Friendly staff and awesome valets. In and out parking privileges. Tea and the paper in the mornings. :) Everyone here was fantastic, always offering tips to have a good time downtown. I was always greeted with a friendly smile.

Definitely the hotel to stay at downtown. I just wish it wasn't so damn expensive, but it's so worth it.

In my opinion, highly overrated. Compared to other hotels of the same caliber, I seemed to expect more. The staff was extremely pleasant and the location was prime but the room was mediocre. For some reason, I expected a grandness but the room seemed more executive style lacking personality. The bathroom was huge but the tub was small. And (I know this a small thing) I wished it would've had a flat screen tv. I mean its 2011!!! Overall, its a nice enough place but fell short of expectations :(

Modern, sharp, and conveniently located.  This upscale hotel is perfectly next to the waterfront.  A great place to wake up and get inspired for a run in sunny San Diego.  It's also across from the convention center and within walking distance to the Gaslamp district with terrific dining and entertainment options.  

The beautiful part of this whole thing was that I got this place for a steal.  Using Hotwire, I booked the highest star hotel I could find... and prepaid about $68 a night here.  Wow.  Of course, the extras add up fast.  Parking is amazingly expensive, as are the restaurants and the bar here.  But the view is impressive and the service impeccable.  I would gladly pay full room rate if it came down to it.

amazing location, amazing and friendly staff! i stayed here for a week and was very impressed with the front desk staff when i checked in. she was very friendly and even gave me a corner room (not sure if this was normal or if she was just being generous, but the room had great views along 2 walls!) my boyfriend came to visit me during the week, and we used the assistance of the extra friendly male concierge to get direction and information for Balboa Park, great little map and help from him!

I also truly loved the gym at this hotel compared to other hotels I have stayed at.  Individual TVs on the treadmill?!  thank you!!  this really helps keep me occupied while I walk and jog.  they also had medicine balls, yoga balls, pretty much most things you could think of.  there was often a staff person in there replenishing the towels and lemon infused water.

lastly and most importantly, my boyfriend frequented the pool and bar/lounge area during the days while I was at a conference. he kept telling me how friendly the staff was there and on my final day he insisted that we go back up to say thank you and he wanted to write a comment card about them. upon our leaving we were stopped by one of the staff who had prepared a bag of champagne, 2 cups, a bottle opener, 2 sparkling waters, raspberry cheesecake, and chocolate cake!! you see, my boyfriend had mentioned a few days earlier that it was our anniversary soon...and they gathered these items just for us! i believe the specific pool staffer who prepared this was named Caley. this blew us away and was way more than we expected!! us writing a comment card and telling the front desk about her kindness doesn't feel like enough, so i feel it is necessary to write this post about her as well.

This Omni is nice. We had a bachelorette party in one of the suites and the living room area was large enough to entertain a group of 12. The suite had a connecting room that ladies could sleep in along with the bedroom in the suite.

This hotel is on par with other better hotels - full amenities, etc. The staff was nice too. I've been to some hotels (Hard Rock SD) and the staff sucks.

Other things to know:
The coffee we had brought up to the room the next day was delicious - could have been the hangover but I don't think so; it was very good.
The parking is $30 but you get a water for the road when you retrieve it from valet.

I wouldn't throw a fit if someone told me I had to stay here again!

How I love the Omni, let me count the ways...

- as a regular guest, the fresh squeezed grapefruit and strong coffee delivered in the AM and free wifi
- the impeccable rooms
- the gorgeous views
- the friendly staff
- the tasty and fast room service
- a location close to the convention center and my favorite east village restaurants
- mellow decor
- quiet

It's great. I've stayed almost everywhere downtown and even with the new, hip, fun hotels, I still choose the Omni every time I'm downtown (twice a year).

See you in August!

I have to repeat what others say about A+ service, cleanliness, rooms, location and more. Everything is beautiful and great, from the pool to the bar downstairs. I showed up at the hotel barely at 11 am during a convention and these guys actually gave me a room right then - and a junior suite, no less. It was gorgeous and amazing and all my convention buddies were jealous. The shower was great, the bed was great... my only complaint was having to leave. Make sure to sign up for their frequent stay program so you can score free wifi (which is usually where you get screwed with at the nicer hotels). Omni will be my new hotel of choice! Was it cheap - no - but it was on the expense account and it was right where I needed to be on short notice, so who was I to complain. Still, they earn every cent.

I gave this hotel 4 stars but it can easily be 3 or 2 depending on your preference.  Let me explain.  
The hotel was located in the middle of Gas Lamp District which was a major plus since everything was in walking distance.  The clubs, restaurants, and baseball park are all within few blocks.  The hotel itself is clean and the view from our room was excellent.

During the baseball season when the game is on, it is almost impossible to get through leaving or coming back to the hotel is you are driving.  There are road closures all over the place and if you are a visitor like me, it's hard to figure out how to get back.  
Also, there are several public parking near the hotel, but when the game is on they are all sold out and you have to valet park for $32 a day at the hotel.  

Finally, the area gets really packed during the weekend so be prepared to drive in or out in heavy traffic where you have drunk people driving like idiots.

So, 4 star for the hotel and 3-2 star for the location depending on what you are looking for.

I live in San Diego and was looking for a nice place to stay for a night because we were going to a club downtown for a friends birthday.

I'm so glad I booked reservations at the Omni. It was nice, clean and everyone was super professional inside. The bathrooms are enormous and imaculate to compliment the rooms.

The pool facility was pristine and gave a view of the bay and Hilton hotel across the way.

Valet was extremely nice and talkative which made me confident in entrusting my car with them. Unfortunately that was a $30 charge.

Easy walking access to most downtown destinations and Horton Plaza Shopping. Just a bridge awway from Petco park during baseball season.

Room service is extremely expensive and I would recommend trying on of the great restaurants in the historic Gaslamp Quarter.

Overall, I enjoyed my time and would definitely book at the Omni again for a party night/ special event.

The Omni always provides me with the zen calm above the fray and the 'noise' that often characterizes the biz jaunts i've made down to SD.

The REALLY GOOD:
--Rooms are average to slightly above average size.
--Rooms are modern, clean and comfy with good amenities.
--The Views are great if you get a higher floor. I have been fortunate to get corner rooms and I've also practically been able to watch the ballgame (well, ALMOST) going on at Petco Park....
--Service is friendly and professional
--As others have mentioned, it's just far enough away from the mayhem that is the Gaslamp so you feel somewhat secluded, but as soon as you roll out, you're right across the street from the Gaslamp if that's your thang (I tend to be more of a Hillcrest/Kensington/University Heights/Little Italy and beyond kinda San Diego urban adventurer, but I digress)...

TIPS: If you're driving, make sure you valet that vehicle otherwise you'll be overwhelmed by the convention center/Petco Park/Gaslamp party scene.

I'm not so enthusiastic about the attached Schmick's on the first floor (foodwise, at least), though it's a decent spot to grab a drink or meetup with folks to start your evening....

DONE.

Every time I think about the Omni, a smile comes to my face. The Omni is at a great location in SD. It's pretty much within walking distance, a short taxi drive within all of the clubs / restaurants.

What I LOVE about the Omni:
-The rooms are super clean and it has a wonderful modernized feel to it.
- The complimentary tea / juice / coffee that is served to you in the morning.
-The service is impeccable - esp the turn down service. They won me over with the chocolate on my pillow. And yes, I ate my bf's too!
-When we mentioned that it was our 2 year anniversary during our check in, they upgraded us to the jr. suite. SCORE!

I constantly check travelzoo.com for any specials at the Omni bc the last time we stayed, it was $130 per night and if you stay 2 nights, you get the 3rd for free!

The Omni was an awesome choice and a great find on priceline for someone who was visiting SD for the first time.

The room was comfortable, fresh and well appointed, although another chair for the desk would have been nice.

The staff was great:
Their suggestions for restaurants were good and they were always friendly, which can be tough when working at a high-line hotel.
The room was kept clean and crisp by housekeeping.
The wake-up juice and coffee was great. I have to admit that the coffee was probably the best cuppa joe to be found anywhere in the gaslamp other than Lion's.
The McCormick and Schmick's in the lobby was great for a little nosh late at night with their late Happy Hour.
The pool and hot tub were the saline type and although the sun shaded over in the late afternoon, pools were nicely laid out and welcoming.
The 14th floor room was modern, comfortable and well insulated from the noises of the stadium, streets, trains and harbors.

I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

I'm a local and I only use Priceline when I stay overnight in the Gaslamp...unless Comic Con or some major holiday is happening, there are always rooms available in one of the 4-star hotels for a steal. This is the second time the Omni has accepted my $95 bid...making me a very happy BG! You never know how you're going to be treated when the staff sees "Priceline" next to your name...will they look at you with slight distaste? Will you be stuck in a room adjoining the elevator? Will there only be one bed for 3 women? I am happy to report that both times, the Omni has treated me right, honoring all of my requests...adjoining rooms with two beds...with a smile.

This latest visit we were having our 7th Annual Pre-Valentine's Day GNO and this was the perfect location. We could walk out the front door and in 3 blocks we were at our restaurant and in another 3 blocks the nightclub. The rooms were clean and stylish.

We had a blast...hope we get the Omni again next year!

The hotel is basically first-rate.  My room is large, the bed is large, the bathroom is large.  The furnishings are contemporary and tasteful.  The workout room on the 6th floor has a lot of equipment, and it's nicely set up.  The personnel are cheery.  Prices for rooms are probably all over the map.  I booked my room through the Omni web site and now realize that I could have gotten the room for less money by using my internet skills.  (My room rate code is WEBSP -- web special -- but I'll bet it's not all that special.)

They don't get 5 stars for plumbing.  My bathroom sink drains lethargically.  Worse, the toilet leaks (in the sense that the tank leaks slowly into the bowl), which means that the toilet makes a momentary flushing noise every 15 minutes or so.  This is something one might notice at night.

I requested a room away from the elevators and got a nice corner room at the end of the hall.  But it's next to the stairwell.!  The stairwell is used, probably by employees who are rushing from floor N to floor N-1.  When people are running up and down the stairs, this can be noisy as well.

Seven girls celebrating my raise at work stayed in adjoining rooms on the 18th floor. Upon entering the room, we stopped to have a look at the view....just wonderful, and an aircraft carrier coming into the harbor at that moment was spectacular. Rooms had been classy, comfy, quiet. Quite centrally situated, just a number of blocks from SD's leading restaurants.

Perfect location - walking distance to all the downtown clubs, restaurants, and shopping. Concierge was helpful everyday as we basically planned our days the morning of. The rooms were very nice and the facilities impeccable. I would highly recommend.

Things to note:

1) There is valet parking for $32/day. But, there is also a parking lot directly across the street which is $8 overnight and $1/hr during the day. We never paid more than $11 on any day we were there. Perfect!

2) The train depot is behind the hotel. This was never a problem as you could never really hear them, but it did kind of take away from the views.

3) The blinds are super tricky in the rooms. Had to have come fix them a couple times.

Other than those little notes, I am sooo pleased with my stay, especially given the price I paid. I have one word: PRICELINE!

This was a really nice hotel, my room overlooked the Padres Stadium.  Plan on a lot of traffic if there is a game when you arrive, the streets right next to the hotel close down.  Wifi was free, you just have to sign up for their reward program.  Parking wasn't too bad, there is a structure right across the street that was less than $10 a day.  There were no in-and-out privileges in the parking structure though, so if you are going to drive around a lot just use the hotel valet. The hotel is in a great location, right next to a bunch of nice places to eat and the san diego convention center.  

The only problem I had with the room was the bathroom door.  For some reason, instead of a normal door they have a crazy sliding door with a giant opaque window in it.  The door does not close completely, leaving about a half inch gap to see through.  This makes privacy impossible.  This wouldn't be a problem if you are traveling alone or with a significant other, but if you are splitting a room with a colleague it's a little creepy.

Want a great place to stay in San Diego that's close to the Convention center? This would be it. Omni offers the "Select Guest" program which means during your stay you have fresh coffee(tea..) and juice (milk...) delivered free to your door; have clothing pressed free twice and even shoes shined once. I kinda like that. You know, I really like that.  

And the rooms, fine, very fine. The general decor is calming and the room was spacious.  I opted for a Bay view away from a big, honking sports field so it was quiet and scenic. And of course, if you like sports, you can face the field. Service was efficient.   Nice work, Omni San Diego!

I love this hotel.  Big plus is that it's not party central like the Hard Rock across the way so you don't have to deal with the crowds outside to get into the lobby in the evenings.  

Having a McCormick & Schmick's in the lobby is also a plus...great late night happy hour menu.  Perfect for post-Comic-con eats!  

The rooms are nice, comfortable beds and quiet.

The Omni hotel was great! The location is awesome, across the way from the Hard Rock Hotel and walking distance from all the bars and clubs. The front desk was super nice and we a nice room on a high floor. The rooms were really clean, BUT they loose a  1/2 a star because the door in the bathroom left a pretty wide gap. It was more of a decoration piece than a real door. If you're staying with friends it can be a little inconvenient.

The pool I used and it was not heated, but they had a spa which was nice and not too hot. It's really nice on the pool deck, especially in the late afternooon and morning.

TIP! They loose another 1/2 a star because of valet. Don't valet your car at the hotel unless your going to be going in and out a lot with your car. If you just going to walk or take cabs then I highly recommend you park your car across the street in the same garage as valet except instead of $30 its $12.

I would  defiantly  stay here again.

This was by far the best hotel I have ever stay at! I booked through the hotel with their winter retreat package so it came out to 104.00$ a night including Friday and Saturday (1st win great price!).

The hotel is parked conveniently right across the street from a 24 hour parking structure so you are not forced to pay the 35 dollar valet fee. Instead we paid 8 dollars for parking on Thursday and the Friday and Saturday we paid 17 dollars day ( 2nd Win!).

When we entered the hotel we were greeting by a very friendly staff and were escorted quickly to our room. The room was great for the price we had a view of the bay and downtown, Bathroom was clean and modern, and the staff even sent up a complimentary fridge upon request (3rd win).

I do recommend signing up with their select guest program because its free and allows for point building and free stuff! They sent us free juice and coffee to our door in the morning just for being select guests (4th win).

The hotel also features a restaurant called McCormick and Schmicks  which has happy hour twice a day with 1/2 cheeseburgers for 2.95! As well as some other great drink and food specials (5th win)

The hotels location is right at the beginning of the gas-lamp district as well so we didn't have to take cabs anywhere except for the new club boudoir which was about a mile away (6th win)

When we asked how much it would be for a late check out (we wanted to check out around 3pm) they gladly accommodated us for no extra charge.We even decided to stay an extra night (Saturday) and they booked us for the same rate the previous nights(7th win)

All around this is a great hotel the only complaint I have is the sliding bathroom doors they do not close completely on either side so you can see and hear everything if you don't cover up the cracks with something.

This is probably my favorite hotel in San Diego. The 2 room suites that overlook Petco Park and face toward the bay are amazing.  The staff are friendly.  It's a really nice hotel to have a romantic getaway.  The hotel itself is quiet yet still in the midst of all things fun in San Diego.  The hotel restaurant is  a nice choice for breakfast.

A good hotel stay is when you feel like you never need to call the front desk for anything.  They have everything you already need ready for you.  It was like this at the Omni, where the friendly staff was always there, but very out of site because we barely needed them for anything.

The rooms were clean and spacious, and check in and check out was a breeze.  For a busy holiday weekend, they were able to give us 6 rooms on the same floor, with people checking in all different times of the day.  

Complimentary bottled water in the room, his and hers robes, and free beverages delivered to your room every morning, could I ask for anything more?  Oh yes, walking distance to everything in the Gaslamp district, as well as walking distance to the main public transit hub and ferry to Coronado island.

Minus one star for how loud it was the whole time.  We were there for 3 days, and I swear the Padres played every single day.  If it's timed just right, hubby gets a roaring cheer for his performance.  We fell asleep with the window open and at 4am we could still hear the house music bumpin' from nearby clubs.  Next time, we should be the ones still out at 4am, so we won't get woken up by it.

Travel zoo for $99/night for a holiday weekend.  I'd so do it again again again!

I'm a big fan of the Omni, having stayed here nearly every time I come to San Diego for work, I find the service to be attentive, the rooms beyond comfortable - they are gigantic, and the amenities make it an enjoyable stay, as do the extra-thick windows (the Omni overlooks Petco Park, where the Padres play.  If you like fresh air, the windows open, which I consider a big plus.

The night I arrived, my only complaint is that no one had told me there'd be a Padres game, about ninety roadblocks preventing me from following my GPS directions to the hotel, and utter mayhem downtown by 9pm.  Luckily San Diego is laid out on a grid system like pretty much every other major city, so doing the mental calculus (6th and L, so I go that way, and then that way) I was able to circumvent the Padres insanity and find the hotel.  Also I stopped at another hotel and asked the bellhop what street I could use to get through, because did I mention there were 90 roadblocks?  Yeesh.

Check-in was efficient, within minutes I was in my gigantic room, flinging open the curtains yielding views of the Padres game, the 6th floor hot tubs and pools, and the fireworks show.  I also spent time rolling the beautiful sliding bathroom door back and forth, back and forth (a privately autistic moment).

I had a corner room (room #904, if you care) which lended views from two sides, including the bathroom, and the bathroom was gigantic.  You could sleep a family of four on the floor between the window and the vanity.

Comfortable beds.  Pretty decent room service prices (though I didn't partake).  

Our Board of Directors met on the 4th floor, all day Saturday.  Our room was beautiful (tons of windows and natural light), we all fit comfortable around the square round-table, our continental breakfast featured a toaster (thank god!  something hot!), and we always had plenty of libations.  I would recommend this hotel for small groups needing a meeting facility as well as the business traveler needing a centrally-located, comfortable (and quiet) place to rest in between meetings.

What a freaking lovely hotel.  Okay I've stayed in many a 4 star hotel... but this one takes the freaking cake.  

It's beautiful, great location, amazing views.  

The windows completely drown out the loud obnoxious party-ers in the gaslamp.  The bathroom is decked out.  Everything you could possibly need: a sewing kit, a bath robe, q-tips, cotton balls, a hair dryer, nice sundries.... it's stocked.  The alarm clock is a CD player, which is really nice.  

Flat screen.  Lots of channels.  

The beds are exceptionally comfortable.  

Can you tell I'm a freaking fan...?

I got it through priceline for two nights... which saved me some cash.  

I would love to stay here again.

I've stayed at alot of hotel, motels, holiday inns =P and I must stay I was pretty impressed with this place. The rooms and bathrooms were nice and the beds were comfy.
They are right across the street from Petco Park and have their own private bridge in which hotel guests have access too. (Be sure to have your hotel key because that is your pass)
They got an extra star for the friendly workers here.

The only thing I had a problem with was the noise, I could hear my neighbor's water running and toilet.
Not alot of privacy when your in the bathroom because the doors are not solid. I'm still trying to figure out if people could see inside our room. Was it tinted? LoL.

The Omni is conveniently located right next to Petco Park (we had an amazing view from our room of the Padres and Giants games during our stay) and a short walking distance to neighboring Gaslamp eateries and bars.  They offer updated rooms and fabulous prices with the help of Priceline (about $100/night).  

My major gripes about the hotel, though, are the extremely slow valet parking service and the lack of ventilation fans that all bathrooms (residential or hotel) should be equipped with.  Bathroom fans are so so so important, especially for the following two reasons:

1) When you're done taking a shower, you don't want be stepping out into a steam room -- bathroom ventilation fans help solve that problem of fogged up mirrors.

2) When you've got to take care of, um, "business," there's nowhere for the polluted air to go, except trapping itself in your hotel room -- bathroom ventilation fans generally help solve that problem, with the extra help of perfume or Febreeze.  

I guess my advice to you is to pick up some of those free matches from the McCormick & Schmick's downstairs on the way up to your room.

I am not adding anything new here -- just adding to the good reviews.

We pricelined a hotel, stayed here to celebrate a special birthday weekend, and the place was great. The pool is good--not the best, but pretty good. The service is excellent--AJ at the front desk is great, he made certain that we got into a room that we liked and sent us a nice note and a bottle of wine for our birthdays.

Great hotel I would stay here again. I would give more stars if the hotel were in a neighborhood that I enjoyed more than Gas Lamp but its a solid option in San Diego especially if you can get a good deal.

We had a wonderful stay at the Omni over Labor Day weekend!  We were able to snag a room at $109/night on the 15th floor and with a view overlooking the convention center and the bay.  Upon arrival in the room, there was a tray with chocolate covered strawberries and a small bottle of champagne waiting for us as we had alerted the hotel in advance this was a special occasion.  If you are planning on staying here, I'd recommend signing up for their Select Guest program because they give you a free drink (coffee, juice, tea, etc) and newspaper in the morning.  This was a nice way to start the day.

Unfortunately we couldn't make it to the Padres game but seeing Petco park from the hotel was quite a sight.  Unfortunately the pool area doesn't have a sight quite as nice.  Instead you have a view of the railroad tracks and the street.  The pool was large enough with fresh towels nearby and a hot tub that would probably fit at least 10 people.  The underwater lights were not working during our stay though.

This would've been a 5* rating only there's VERY limited parking.  Your main parking options are valet the car for $26 a day w/ in & out privileges or park it yourself at the same garage for about $16 a day w/ no in & outs.  The garage also has an flat rate early bird special if you are in before 9am.

I'd stay here again if I was going to be limiting myself to the Gaslamp Quarter, but otherwise, I can't justify spending $26/day to park my car when I can just take the trolley to the Gaslamp for the evening.

I like to focus on the positives.  Though I will not be staying at the Omni again, others might like it.  This hotel is on the edge of the GasLamp district in SD.  They cater to 20 somethings.  If you're under 35, this hotel is probably what you are looking for.  The party never stops.  Run out of beer?  Just hop into the elevator... they have them kicking on the floor.  Seriously it's like south beach college.  Over 35? Ouch.  Don't expect sleep.  The hotel tolerates partying even past 2am.  Our neighbors seemed to pass out at 3:15am.  Twenty years ago, this would have been the place for me!  I guess I'm getting old (41).

I surprised my husband for our wedding anniversary with a night at the Omni and tickets to the Padres' game.  We only live about 15 minutes away but it definitely felt like a vacation!

Everyone is SUPER friendly and nice; from the front desk, to housekeeping, to valet.  They were all genuinely nice :)

I highly recommend you sign up for their Omni Hotels Select Guest rewards system.  It's really easy, you do it online, and it's free.  With it, you get free internet access (otherwise it's $9.95), free bottle of water ($6), and evening turn-down service, express checkout. There are other perks, but those were the ones I appreciated.

The rooms were really nice, king sized bed, nice bathrooms (with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, mouthwash, soap, shower cap, hair dryer, and sewing kit), plenty of room, and really quiet.  Check in time was 3pm checkout at noon.

We took advantage of the rooftop pool and spa....very nice! The spa was bubbly and hot and the pool was heated perfectly.  Plenty of places to lounge and comfortable lounge chairs and plenty of towels.  The bridge from the 4th floor to Petco park was also convenient when we were going to the game.

Overall a great experience! I highly recommend it!

I'm attending a conference here and checking out today. I am so impressed by the hotel staff that I am writing this review while I'm still here.

First, the location is ideal for a San Diego stay. Right across from the ballpark, steps away from the Gaslamp, the convention center and the bay. The rooms are ok, but nothing incredible or luxurious.  The key thing that sets this hotel apart is the staff. In particular, the event and catering staff. I'll share two example of their stellar performance and attention to detail.  
1)The contracted photographer for my firm's annual annual client conference mentioned to one of our marketing staff that it was her birthday. One of the hotel staff overheard that casual comment, got the catering staff/pastry chef to arrange a birthday cake for the photographer, then presented it as if it had been my firm's idea and gift. That is simply first class.
2) Because I wore the world's most uncomfortable shoes for 12 hours, I had some serious blisters on my feet and no band-aids.  The man working the front desk at midnight tracked some down for me and gave me a handful.  Saving my poor feet for two more days of standing in heels.

If you are thinking of this location for a personal or corporate event, look no further. The staff here is incredible.

If this is your first time staying in San Diego or if you want to impress your loved one with beautiful accommodations then the Omni Hotel is the right choice for you. My wife and I were ever so lucky to land a room here through Expedia's 4 star offer (Kinda like hotwire). The room had all the amenities from bathrobes to morning juice and a newspaper at your doorstep. The TV was flat and the bed was soft. The views were amazing. The doorman helped us out with directions several times and every staff member presented a smile proudly. The best thing about this hotel is the location, hands down.  After parking my car across the street in the parking garage I never used my car again. From the front door you can access pretty much anywhere in San Diego. All 3 trolley lines meet up at the Omni, which grant you this all access pass. Not to mention the convention center and Gaslamp quarter are all a stones throw away. Great Hotel

We checked in after using Hot wire to get a reduced rate. We parked overnight in the city owned parking on the corner of 4th and Tony Gywnn Way. There or no in and out privileges, but at $14 its very reasonable. So if you plan to just hang out downtown this beats the hotel overnight rate of $32 plus the customary tipping.

The hotel is clean and the front desk staff well mannered and pleasant. Loaned us umbrellas for walking to Morton's Steak house, within walking distance. The room, is alright the bedding is the standard fair, however after being in heavenly bedding its a real step down. The TV was old school and there was all sorts of unnecessary electronics for games? DVD Player, keyboard, too much. Keep it simple stupid. The TV was fuzzy until and dropped my suitcase on the floor next to the TV and walla the picture screen went clear. Restroom was good size, but the towels were very standard. We were on the 20th floor which provided a good view of downtown and Petco Park.

The kicker was night time noise, I have stayed here twice and forgot that the Hard Rock Hotel has a club which creates noise. Also the hallways seemed noisy. We were in 2016 which was right by the elevator, so that is the luck of the draw.

Wi-Fi was $9.95, which seemed reasonable to me and pretty standard. I use my IPAD to stay in contact.

Overall the value against the price was good, not great. limited dining choices in the hotel.

What stands out the most at the Omni for me was the service. From the moment we walked in to checkout, we were greeted and treated with professionalism and great attitudes from the doormen to housekeeping and front desk staff. Location can't get any better as it is located at the gateway to the Gaslamp district. I could of however, done without the train horn blaring at 2:30 in the morning since the tracks are just outside the hotel. Room was comfy and the bathroom spotless.We loved the complimentary beverages that you order the previous night and have waiting at your doorstep in the morning at the time you choose. If you don't want to pay the $31 valet parking, you can self park for a lot less across the street. Overall, our stay was enjoyable and memorable and will definitely stay here again.

I heart Omni~~
Been here 2 times and both the same room...(on different levels tho).
It was the corner room with a beautiful view...
The King bed has the nicest sheets!!!! All white, down, fluffy and clean!!!
I literally didn't want to get out of bed. =D
The bathroom is unique... and the bathroom walls were replaced by some type of wooden shutters and sliding door...it's not very private tho...so that can be a little awkward...
The location is great...since it's at the end of gaslamp away from all the noise.
Parking does suck...and it's probably better to do the valet since you get in and out privileges.

My girlfriend and I spent 4 days and 3 nights at the Omni San Diego. We had an amazing time. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and a treated like welcome guests.

Everyone we spoke with is extremely knowledgeable about the area and where to go. Our bell hop Chip told us all about the pool, restaurants, coffee service etc.

We visited the pool often during our stay, the waitresses were friendly and outgoing...they even passed around free otter pops to cool off on a hot afternoon.

We traveled away from the gaslamp a couple of times during our stay, so we had to take our car. The valet staff was very friendly. asked us where we were headed and offered great directions. Also, they put cold bottled waters in our car for our drive.

The room service was great, if you join the rewards club (which is free) you get free coffee in the morning with additional charges for other items (toast, bagels, etc.) The staff provided turn down service which was a nice treat after walking the nearby downtown.

The hotel is situated close to Petco park and the downtown, so an easy walk to almost anywhere in the area, including transit if needed.

I highly recommend staying at this hotel if in the area, the price is right, the location is amazing and the staff is the friendliest you could ask for.

The Omni never seems to disappoint!  First of all this location is in the heart of the Gaslamp district.  Walking distance to almost everything which is so great.  Restaurants, shops, malls, clubs, bars, and literally across from the Petco Stadium.  Infact there's a great view from the 18th floor and the Omni has a bridge that allows guests direct access to the park for ball games.  The rooms are very modern, bed was comfortable, the hotel was clean and hotel staff was GREAT.

This hotel is as good as it gets. The customer service is 5 star, the cleanliness is 5 star and the location is perfect.You can easily walk to the Gaslamp Quarter, the tram & the harbor.

Most rooms have an excellent view of either the bay or petco park. I will definitely come back again.
You can call down to make sure your car is ready to go by the time you get downstairs.  They even provide you cold bottle of waters when you pick up your car.

I give this hotel 5 stars for its beautiful roof deck, pool and jacuzzi.

Awesome service from this hotel in downtown San Diego.  As a member of their loyalty program, I was able to convert my rewards into a four-night stay at no cost.  

I was pleasantly surprised when they had upgraded my room to a King Suite.  And as if that were not enough, there was a bottle of wine and huge fruit plate waiting for me.

Thanks for a memorable stay and a great jumping point for my vacation!

Stayed here over the weekend and had an excellent experience.  We got this place through Priceline, but we've stayed here before several times.

First of all, you need to join their Select Guest program.  Even though you booked with Priceline, you can still get their benefits except you don't get rewarded for your stay.  The program is free.  You get:

1. Free wi-fi during your entire stay
2. Free turn-down service
3. Complimentary bottled water on your first night
4. Two complimentary beverages in the morning for each guest

The complimentary beverages is pretty much morning room service.  You get to choose two beverages from teas, coffee, juices, or bottled water, delivered to outside or inside your room, completely free.

The hotel room itself is pretty standard for a 4 star hotel in San Diego.  Nice and clean.  The only gripe about it is the TV is old and the picture's dark (can't be adjusted).

Staff is very polite and helpful.  Always appreciate that.  Doormen greeted us with a smile.  Kinda rare these days.

But the greatest part is, I accidentally left my laptop's charger in the room after we left the hotel.  I called them up the next day, and they said they found the charger.  They immediately shipped it out to me via FedEx at no charge to me.  Amazing.

Last tip: Park in the parking structure across the street.  That's where the valet parks your car anyway.  We parked in there for 2 nights, and came out to $20.  The valet charges (I think) $35 a night.

STAY SOME WHERE ELSE!
Wow, what a disappointment.  We stayed in their "King Suite."  We were told it had a balcony.  Their balcony is two sliding glass doors that open to a railing.  You could not fit out there if you closed the glass doors.  That...is NOT...a balcony.  They have old, small screened television sets.  The bathtub is so shallow that I couldn't even enjoy a bath.  For the "King Suite," we expected it to be appointed with special touches.  It wasn't.  The "hot" tub wasn't very hot & they're were VERY few jets.  We both chose coffee as our "free" beverage in the morning.  We ordered cream & soy with it.  We we served coffee that was so bad..we couldn't drink it.  They gave us one small serving of milk (it may have even been skim milk.)  No cream or soy as ordered.  This was not a complicated order.  But that's how the Omni started our day.

I thought that the Omni was suppose to be top notch hotel.  Absolutely NOT.

I've stayed at the Ivy, Se, the Westin, and some other Gaslamp hotels, but I really liked staying at the Omni. The views were fab, the rooms were spacious, the bed was snuggly, the service was good, the prices were decent, and the location was perfect.

One thing, though...

Well, I've said it before, and I'll say it again... Not having privacy has become trendy-- apparently. I'm never going to understand why all these fancy hotels find it uber-swanky to have their bathrooms be without an actual door or four walls. The fixtures were nice, but why shutters? You really have to be comfortable and intimate w/ the guest(s) you're sharing the room w/ because anything you do in the bathroom can be heard, seen, and (need I say?) smelled... I pray the future trendiness of bathrooms does not extend to the other 2 senses...

Ok, disclaimer time: I didn't STAY in this hotel, I just pre-gamed in my friend's room for my birthday :) But... I wish I could stay in this hotel! The view from the suite was the Coronado Bridge and the ballpark. The bathroom / room itself was decorated so well and was so cozy. The bed looked like I could sleep in it for a week without realizing. I wanted to curl up SO BAD!!

I was pretty impressed. It's also a great location by the Hard Rock without paying HR prices.

I didn't get to see any in-house restaurants, etc, so I can't report on that. But you could see the pool area down below from the balcony, and it looked chic!

The only thing I question is why they haven't upgraded the tv's yet......... !

Stay of one night, take my comments with a grain of salt.

Efficient check in, clean rooms, clean public areas, terrace pool on level 5 had a clean and neat look, never went in.

Located really well, Petco Park walkway to a Padres game, Trolley right there to go to little Italy, Old Town, the Chargers game.
Right across from the Hard Rock if you want to go there, very close to the Convention center, lots of food choices close by, at the base of the Gas Lamp district and East Village.

Runners have a immediate identifiable running path starting at the convention center walkway and going north on Harbour, you can go a long ways with out stoping for a light.

Valet, concierge were helpful, and of course courteous. But I think we all expect that.  Waters in the car when it was brought around.

The weird things: Bathroom; smell and noises are broadcast - there is no exhaust fan and there are shutter sliding doors at the entrance and there were these strange two shutters from floor to ceiling opening into the bedroom. You can not seal off the bathroom, and since no exhaust fan, yep, smelly room, anyone else in the room gets to hear it all.  

So conventioneers, when you bring people up to your room for some drinks - well, now you know.

Wi Fi: I've been in a few other hotels that are at least as nice, all having free Wifi, no need to become a member, some where you become a free member like this hotel has, but at least at the other hotels you could actually use the wifi/internet. THis one was extremely slow.  

Nice place overall.

My husband Mario and I stayed here on the night of our honeymoon, and it was so wonderful!

When we arrived, there was a complimentary bottle of champagne along with chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us. The reception desk even hand wrote us a welcome note congratulating us!!!! I thought that was so sweet! They even had some of the staff sign the note for us.

The room was gorgeous, spacious, clean and comfortable. Our view was beautiful facing San Diego bay and the Coronado bridge.

The staff was always very welcoming and even the valet workers were extremely efficient and polite. I've never stayed in such a friendly hotel!

The second day of our stay, we received complimentary slices of apple pie!!! It was SUCH a lovely surprise!

Overall, I definitely recommend this hotel for anyone who's looking for a beautiful and relaxing getaway. It's definitely a steal too, not overpriced at all!!! The Omni has to be one of the best hotels in downtown San Diego, and I can't wait to go back!

Clean well maintained rooms and common areas. Staff is friendly and well trained, customer service is clearly enforced.

Pool area is small and people tend to congregate and not budge from their spot making the use of the pool and jacuzzi uninviting.

Good location great views.

Solid hotel, great location, sparkling clean, beautiful views.    One star gets knocked off for me for the lack of different bar options in the hotel, and the more chill vibe at night (probably due to it's more business traveler leanings), as well as the crazy parking fee of $35/day.    I will definitely be back though.

What a great experience! The pool was very nice as was the service in the pool area. We had a pool/ocean view which was wonderful. The Valet service was very professional and fast (a little pricey at $35). The Starbucks located inside was a wonderful morning treat. The location couldn't be any better. The best part was the 4th floor bridge right over to PetCo park to the Padre's game we went to. All of the staff was very kind and accommodating. The room was beautiful, the bed and pillows were SUPER comfortable. We didn't hear any noise even though it's right in the middle of everything. This place is amazing. Highly recommended. The weather didn't cooperate with us, so San Diego should work on that ;)

We stayed here 3 nights recently and couldn't have been happier!  The view from our room on the 15th floor was right into the outfield of Petco Park and out onto the harbor - both amazing.  The location is beyond convenient to everything - especially the Gaslamp area, great dining options, Petco Park, Seaport Village, convention center, access to the bridge to Coronado, etc.  The hotel, lobby, bar, restaurant, pool, gym, rooms, beds, towels, etc. are all great along with the staff, which was very curteous, attentive and efficient.  We requested a mini fridge for our room and one was being delivered when the bellman and I arrived with our luggage - there was no charge for this.  We opted to park in the parking building directly across the street for approx $12/day instead of parking at the Omni for $35/day.  Loved our stay at the Omni and would definitely return!

Service: A++
As soon as we walked in, a woman greeted us, and we felt welcomed. :)

Cleanliness: A+
The maids here clean your room very often. Maybe everyday. There is also a DO NOT DISTURB sign, and they definitely do not come in.

Volume: B++
Some nights-stayed for 4 nights-were loud, but in the drawers were earplugs, I dunno maybe 1 pair?

Food: B+
We ordered room service. One delicious breakfast! Definitely DO NOT order orange juice. It tastes like wrapper. The apple juice tastes good.

Overall: A+
I love Omni Hotel and the great Petco Park. It's about 1 block away! Go here if your coming for the awesome sunshine or the beautiful views, stay here!

Great view of the ball park & great location!
You can easily walk to the Gaslamp Quarter, the tram & the harbor.

The front desk employees are always very helpful & nice.

The building is modern & clean. The rooms are comfortable.

My only problem is the bathroom (I'm such a girl! lol). They don't have any ventilation, so when you take a hot shower you will steam up to low visibility, & the door doesn't close all the way or lock. So basically you have the same problem here as you do in public restrooms where there's a constant gap & you just know people who are walking by are peeking in, lol. A door that 'closes' & locks is a MUST for the 5 stars.

Superior location, service, and quality.  We stayed one Saturday night with a reasonable rate through RNR SD marathon.  Our room on the 20th floor had a bay/city view, breathtaking both day and night.  The cleanliness and quality of the room were excellent.  Service, including valet and concierge were also excellent.

I was pleased with the wonderful perks for our 2 children: complimentary toy-filled backpacks at check-in, and a personal delivery of cold milk and cookies after dinner.  

Location can't be beat.  2 minute walk to Convention Center, Gaslamp Trolley stop, and Gaslamp restaurants.

The only drawbacks are the charge for WIFI ($9.95) and no mini-fridge.  The $29 overnight valet (for Sat night) seems high, but is comparable for the area.

I attended a conference in the Convention Center and stayed in the Omni.  First, the staff was amazing.  The good customer service was definitely topnotch.  The location for conventions is awesome.
The bed was super comfy.  
I had some trouble with my wifi and the technician was rude, but the actual hotel staff was great and called me to check on me and make sure I was okay after that.  
Room service was prompt and delicious.  
Everything about my stay was perfect.  I would pick Omni again for my next San Diego Convention Center stay.

First visit to San Diego and I doubt I could have picked a better hotel.  The staff was excellent and helpful.  Very convenient to Gaslamp, trolley system, Petco park and convention center.  Pre pay for valet parking and save yourself $8 a day.  Definitely great value hotel for the price, and a $50 pet fee was no big deal considering it wasn't per day but for your stay.  Room was elegant and clean with a great view for the bay.  Restaurant in the lobby isn't great and the only thing I wouldn't consider worth its value but gets the conventioneers.  I will be staying here on our next visit and will be recommending it to others.  Well done Omni!

Gorgeous new hotel, courteous staff and (if you don't have a car to get around San Diego in and need to scour for food) convenient location.

Just be sure to request a room with city view, not water view, upon check-in.  You will be thankful that you do after spending your first night free of awful freight train noises from the nearby track!

We love this hotel. We are locals in San Diego, but once in a while its nice to just play tourist in your own town and get a great room downtown. The Omni is a beautiful hotel: Modern, clean, comfortable, great location. The staff is professional and courteous. The rooms are nice, fairly good size as hotel rooms go. The few times we've stayed here, we have had upper floor rooms with awesome views of the Bay, Downtown and Petco Park. The hotel is far enough away from the noise and traffic from the Gaslamp (unless there is a game), but still close enough for walking distance to the convention center, restaurants and clubs.

Nice touches: Free non-alcoholic drinks per night. Request on a card and leave on door. A tray magically appears in morning with your request at your door. Also, if you valet, they give you a water bottle to go for your ride home.

Ouch: Valet is pricey. I think like $30 a night. Seems a bit much, but I guess you are paying for location.

Nice rooms and great location in Downtown San Diego. It's connected to Petco Park and surrounded by shops and restaurants. The staff is really friendly and make you feel right at home.

I was in town for a concert and to catch a Padres game. The hotel was connected to Petco Park via a sky bridge, which was fantastic. The hotel was new and clean with a nice modern feel. They offer valet service, but you can park in the parking lot the is directly across the street for $1/hour or a max of $15/day, which beats the $38/day for valet. When I go back to San Diego next year, I will almost definitely stay here again.

I definitely have mixed feeling about the Omni in SD.  I guess I would have to say my overall experience was good but it all started pretty bad.  When we checked in on a Friday evening the front desk clerk was VERY helpful and even provided us with a map along with a brief summary of where we were and what we could find around the area.  

The "disaster" happened when we were trying to get a quick bite to eat at the hotel restaurant.  The restaurant was about to close in 15 minutes so we walked in towards the bar.  The bartender was in their chatting with some guys. You could tell she saw us but completely ignored us.  When we asked some of the other restaurant employees if the kitchen was still open they rudely said "NO."   Then when we got into our room the room temperature felt like it was about 80-90 degrees.  What was even worse, the AC was broken.  We called the front desk and we got nothing but negative attitude from the front desk girl (Omni, this was around 11PM on June 17, 2011).  They did end up sending an EXTREMELY helpful engineer named Esteban who tried to fix the AC.  He was friendly, cordial, and very apologetic.  When he told us we would probably need to change rooms we called the front desk again and told them the engineer was recommending we change rooms.  Again...nothing but attitude from the front desk girl (that was working at the front desk around 11PM on June 17, 2011).  We were already annoyed that we had to move rooms and the front desk girl made things worse.  Esteban tried to make some excuses for her "she must be having a bad day" and apologized on her behalf but that wasn't helping and we were "officially" pisst off.  Esteban ended up taking care of everything for us and even gave us a free movie for our troubles.

Omni - you should have that front desk girl get some customer service training from Esteban.  I mean, if you were a Best Western or Motel 8 I would understand but we're paying high rates to stay at your hotel -  AC doesn't work - room is 90 degrees - I would expect your front desk girl to be a little more considerate.  

Anyways...sorry to rant...Omni is actually in a FANTASTIC location right next door to Petco Stadium.  It's in the Mission district and right across the street from the Harbor/Embarcadero District.  It's also within minutes (driving) from Little Italy district.  

Even though I experienced bad customer service the first night, the hotel itself is pretty damn good.  The rooms are nice and pretty spacious.  The hotel was clean and you can't beat the location.  

I guess customer service always depends on the people you're dealing with so I would assume that we just ran into some bad luck that night so I would definitely stay at the Omni SD again.

Always love staying at an Omni.  Geared for business travellers, they have it down to a science.  it is the little things in which they really excel such as the extras in the bathrooms ( q tips, robes, sewing kits, lots of towels, always great water pressure).  Join as a Select guest ( its free!) and extra perks such as free WiFi and coffee brought to your door in the morning gratis can all be yours.

This particular Omni is in a great location at the foot of the Gaslamp quarter adjacent to Petco park and the convention center.  My only gripe is the odd sliding bathroom doors in the rooms.  Zero sound privacy.  May God help you if you need to drop a deuce and you are staying with someone who is not your spouse of many years.  Unless your anus plays Mozart during expulsion, you had best turn on the sink, the shower, and the hairdryer or all will be heard to anyone in the room.

Hmm...The Omni. Wife and I took a quick trip south and stayed here for a few nights. FIrst night was great; quiet, comfortable and clean. Just about everything we would like from a hotel. Of course there are lots of frills, great pool, hot tub, McCormick and Schmick's, excellent customer service. Night 2 didn't go quite as well. Had to call on hotel security to quiet the party/porn shoot in the room next ours. When we got up the next morning and asked my wife if she felt we should say something to management. She suggested no, I agreed. When we arrived back at our room after breakfast, we were surprised to have received a call from the day manager, Lars, letting me know that he would like to speak with me. I called, he was deeply apologetic. It was a remarkable gesture just to get a phone call, but Lars raised the bar by comping us all of our valet fees and upgrading our room!
The staff and management at The Omni have won our loyalty.

My girlfriend was staying at this hotel last weekend for her birthday, and I was visiting her for the evening.  I parked at a nearby structure, but they told me that I had to have my car out by midnight. I didn't know what to do with my car after that, because parking in downtown on Saturday nights is insane. I asked the valet at Omni, Rob, for an opinion on what I should do, and he graciously offered to watch my car for a few hours without charging me any fees. It saved our Girls' Night Out, and I am incredibly grateful.
It is so nice to know that there are kind people out there willing to help out someone who isn't even a customer at their business. Thank You Rob!

We had a great weekend at the Omni Hotel.  It is walking distance from Gaslamp, Seaport Village & the ferry to Coronado Island.  The hotel was very nice and clean.  The walls are pretty thin, we could hear our neighbor's alarm clock radio blaring at 6am.  We had a view of the convention center, and did have a balcony off of our room, which was nice to open the door and let the fresh air in.

We stayed here Friday the 13th of April through Monday the 16th. We came here for my boyfriend's birthday, I chose this place through the overall reviews from yelpers. Thanks to yelp, this was a great hotel for us! Amazing everything, from the moment we entered the hotel, the staff was super friendly and made me feel comfortable. Our room was on the 18th floor and our view was amazing. The room has a little tiny balcony to stand on which was awesome as well. From our room you can also see the hotel's pool. Our room was very clean and even though it was a bit small, it was still comfy. The bed was extremely comfortable and had just the right pillows too. Its been a long time since we've had a comfy bed, it was about time. We slept on the clouds.
Room service was on point. I ordered the eggs benedict with crab cakes, which was delish and my boyfriend order the steak and eggs which he liked too. It arrived a little bit earlier than the time they said it would get to our rooms by. The location is perfect for the night life party goers too. It is right at the center of the Gas-lamp District which is full of restaurants, lots and lots of bars :) and a few night clubs. It is right across the Petco San Diego Park( and I mean right across, we took a picture of their field from our floor's windows). We also had breakfast on sat morning at their in-site restaurant called McCormick and Schmick's, food was super delicious, and service was great. When we checked out , the process was super easy, we just used the express checkout service that they offer and we were done. The four stars is only because of the parking. They only offer valet parking, which was an extra $35 a day!! Way too much, but fortunately, the valet guy told us about the parking structure across the street ( seriously, the opposite corner of the hotel) was only $19 a day he said. So we went for his word and turned out to be for Friday night to sat morning-$19, sat night to sun morning-$17, and sun night to Monday evening only $11 :) even better! If it wasn't for the $35 fee for parking at the hotel daily, it would have been 5 stars.
-Bottom line, will definitely come back next time were in town, maybe to catch a Dodger vs Padres game :)
-sign up for their free rewards program when you book this hotel, you get free wifi and free morning beverage for up to 2, when youre a member.

Really nice hotel, great location! If you are in the mood to go out and enjoy down town San Diego this is a great place to stay.

With that said there are a few cons.
1. For such a nice hotel WiFi should be included in the price of the hotel.
2. For such a nice hotel I would expect to see flat screen high def televisions in each room.
3. For people with small children. 3 and under. I didn't find the hotel very family friendly, but I don't think it is meant to be family friendly. You can hear the noise from the clubs down below (we were on the 22nd floor) Also the noise from people in the hallway is really loud especially people getting ready to go out and people coming back late. Like I said not so great for the little ones.

Even with the above stated cons, I would stay at this hotel again, just maybe not with the little one. The restaurant downstairs is great! The view is beautiful. If you have tickets to the baseball game this is the perfect place to stay. Walking distance to lots of shopping, restaurants GREAT LOCATION! Also great staff. I left my son's diaper bag in the car and the staff was nice enough to go get it for me and bring it up to my room. Great service.

Tip: You can find great deals on the room rates on expedia.com

Stayed at the Omni for a couple days and had a great experience.

Service - Excellent.  Friendly service from the moment we valeted our car to when we left valet.  You can call down to make sure your car is ready to go by the time you get downstairs.  They even provide you cold bottle of waters when you pick up your car. Concierge was very helpful, they helped me locate a store that was close by.

I had an excellent stay here over the summer. Everything was perfect I got the exact room I wanted which was one in a high floor and away from the elevator. The location is perfect too as its right in front of the gaslamp district and a nice walk from seaport village. It's also very close to the light rail and convention center. I will be staying here again in the near future.

A+ service, great location, challenging washrooms, shitty internet, pricey food, noisy.

*SERVICE* A+
----- all face-to-face human interactions were incredibly top notch. Super fast check-in/-out. Front desk helped fix a few problems and a room change for me with no questions asked, friendly and professional. Housekeeping was also a flying A+.

*ROOM* B
----- my room upon arrival was not what i booked, view-wise. At first i decided not to make a deal of it - no biggie, but then i notice a totally crazy smell from the washroom... not like someone had just been in there, but something else... like, dead and between the walls... good god. I asked for a room change immediately, and got a far better room, on the corner, which i totally recommend for the double set of windows and balcony... makes a huge difference. lots of light. They call it a water-front view, which it wasn't... but i still loved all that light. Bed was big, pillows a little too big and hard, the room was roomy, a great lounge chair with ottoman... bland decor, but loved the spaciousness.

*WASHROOMS* B-
----- as everyone's saying, they're weird as fuck. California shutters facing the toilet and frosted-glass sliding doors with no lock. Despite that, I actually found the visuals to be no problem at all (it LOOKS like you can see through from the inside of the bathroom, but from the outside, no way. you're totally fine). the problem was sounds and smells. more sounds than smells, but still the both. If you're here with anyone else who is not your spouse or super-significant other, the sound issue is really regrettable. ZERO sound privacy. Otherwise, ferocious water pressure and endless hot water, good toiletries.

*LOCATION* B
----- Stellar location for getting around. Trolley is at your doorstep, and you're at the center of Gaslamp. A VERY walkable city in this part (i had no car on this trip). The downside is the neighboring Hard Rock Cafe which kicks out heavy bass drum club music all week long. And I'm a light sleeper. By the end of my 5 night visit, i was slowly getting used to the thumping, but it's a horrible thing to get used to.

*INTERNET* D
----- Sucks. Confusing, diabolically misleading, and weak/slow connections. Also, I just KNEW i was going to get charged for this supposedly *free* service, so i asked before check-out, and indeed I had $40 of internet fees. I asked them to remove the fees. Which they did, with no questions or hesitation... like they knew this was coming. That's shady shit!

*ROOM SERVICE* C+
----- the actual SERVICE is totally aces, but the PRICE for breakfast in bed is ludicrous. $50 for coffee, yogurt, and toast for two. Maybe if you're rich that feels double rainbow... but not for me.

All I can say is "meh."

Actually, that's not all I can say.  And that's a good thing, because that would really be a shitty existence.  "How was your day?"  "Meh."  "Would you like some soup?"  "Meh."  "Give me one good reason I shouldn't blow your brains all over this parking lot!"  "Meh."

Usually, you can rely on the Omni to deliver a really pretty excellent experience.  Here, the public spaces were all very well done, and pretty decently posh.  But the rooms were just kinda sorta okay.

The location is really nice, right off the Gaslamp District, but my schedule was such that drinking myself into a bottomless hole of dark and comfortable oblivion was not on the menu.  Plus, as it turns out, the next day, I consumed three shots of Cazadores before noon, so I'm actually retroactively grateful that I took it easy the night I spent in the Omni.

The next time I'm in San Diego, I might go back here, and I might not.  And, either way, I'll be okay with it.  Hopefully, you will, too.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a stay at this wonderful hotel because a close friend of mine held her wedding here.  The service was perfect.  They had really nice and friendly staff.  I asked for directions to places and they all very helpful.  It is located right across the street from the convention center and Petco park.  They also offer freshly baked cookies in the Lobby.  They were awesome!  If I had to complain about it, then it would have been nice if they can offer some milk with the cookies.  I am not going to hate on Omni for that.

The room was nice and clean.  I had a nice view of the ocean and chula vista from my room on the 13th floor.  That's another odd thing, why is there a 13th floor at this hotel?  Don't they know its bad luck?  Oh well, I did not have any bad luck at all and had a very pleasant stay.  The beds were really nice and comfy.  I had a CRT tube TV which is something I would not expect from a hotel like the Omni.  Even Motel 8 had a LCD TV, lets step it up OMNI.  I needs my sports in HD.  Internet was $15 per day and thats to be expected at a hotel like this.  The restroom had a full size tub.  The restroom was pretty large itself.  It was fully stocked with facial and toilet paper.  They also had soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel provided.  It was not the cheapy brands, its those brands that I cant even pronounce.

The best thing about this place has to be the location.  It is right next to a lot of major attractions like the gas lamp / downtown area and they all within walking distance.  If you want to see what San Diego is all about, book your hotel here to make your planning a bit easier.  

The only negative thing I can say about this place is they charge a $35 parking rate, per day!  That is really over priced in my opinion.  
This is what I expect for $35 parking rate per day:
- Auto detailed inside out, waxed
- fill up the gas
- plus they have to get 5 guys to push my car for valet so they don't put any miles on it.  
I know it's maybe too much to ask for, but so is $35 per day parking fee.

Overall I had a great experience at the Omni.  Clean rooms, friendly service, awesome location.  It is really a 4.5 stars in my books.  I probably would return back to this place sooner, but I have to save up to pay that daily parking fee.

$99 A night through travelzoo.com . We have a great view off of the 16th floor where we can see Coronado Island and the bay. Nice, clean hotel with friendly staff. Nothing out of this world but the location is great for checking out Gaslamp, no driving or taxis needed.
Parking is $32 a night at the hotel. Next door takes cash & checks but if you go 1 block up they take credit cards at the underground parking for only $10 a night :)

The best thing about the Omni is its location. Everything is within walking distance, including the Metro. Petco Park (a baseball stadium for those who do not know) is absolutely beautiful and connected to the hotel.  We didn't have anything planned so got some game tickets and had a blast. Both hotel and ballpark have stunning views of the bay.  Hotel service excellent, superior staff, clean rooms.  The only reason I and not rating 5 stars is because it's not a 5-star hotel.  The thread count on bedsheets was not the best quality and had faint smell of bleach. Otherwise, excellent place to stay, it's the fun place to stay. TIP: Valet $30 + tip. Across the street $12.

Best place to stay if you're going to a Padres game. Parking right in front if you don't want to pay for valet services, and you've got your own entrance to PETCO park on the second floor. This might not seem like much, but when exiting the park with MLB crowds, that hotel-guest-only exit is a life-saver.

The place is great!

Room was nice, except for the restroom.
If your sharing with buddies don't expect privacy cause it's a plexi glass door that slides and doesn't have a lock so someone can just walk in on you and or peek through the sides since the door doesn't fully cover the sides, :/

Other than that... walkin distance from everything!
Pool is beautiful

Staff is awesome.

Fun fun!

I cannot say enough about the staff. They were amazing.  They were always friendly, gave great restaurant recommendations and the bartender at the pool even gave us a free drink because she had extra and didn't want it to go to waste.  The rooms are super clean and the pool is relaxing, although the view is only okay.  

We didn't have a problem parking on the street as long as you don't mind walking.  The Valet let us take our bags up to the room and then we went on a hunt for parking because I am cheap :)  We parked about a 10-15 minute walk away.  If you can't find parking it can get expensive as everyone else says, but that is going to be everywhere in the Gas Lamp.  It was nice being in the area because you could go out at night and not have to worry about driving home.

Normally I would rate this type of hotel a 3.5 stars because it is not technically luxurious, but the staff, comfiness and cleanliness bring it up to a full 4 stars.  We signed up for the free Select Guest program mostly for the free WiFi.  

We will def be back!

This hotel is very clean and classy. Valet was a breeze and check-in took about 3 minutes. Lobby decor is fairly minimalist which I like and staff is very friendly but not to overzealous. The room as expected was very clean and king bed was comfortable. Plenty of towels,safe,mini bar,42 inch LCD,coffee maker with 2 servings of coffee and tea. My room was only on 7th floor but it was overlooking the 6th floor pool area and even had a tiny balcony. This hotel would be perfect for couples and business trips ,basically people who just want to be left alone . You'll only see staff when you need them or in the lobby which I prefer.Location is perfect . Petco Park,Convention Center and Gaslamp Quarter are  steps away . San Diego Zoo , the beach and Coronado Island are minutes away. I would definitely come back.

No complaints; fast check in, clean room, awesome view, easy self parking, conveniently located. Like my SF hotel posts, I've stayed at many SD hotels and t his one is one of my favs so far.

Got a great deal via priceline.

I really wanted to like this hotel.

The good:
- Perfect location.  Right at the base of the gaslamp district, water views, etc.
- Super friendly staff, doormen, valet.
- Clean

The bad:
- Very uncomfortable beds and pillows.  We booked for 2 nights and would have happily stayed longer due to the above reasons; however, we couldn't stay another night there due to this.  We were both left with sore necks and had trouble falling asleep.

- Bathroom door is a joke.  
 - It's a slider (not pocket door).  It slides across the opening to the bathroom.  The door is not as wide as the opening.  So when you close it there is about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch gap on each side of it.  It also does not lock.  No bathroom fan. Maybe I'm just weird because I like to have privacy when I use the bathroom but to me this was a big deal and really bothered me.

- Valet parking is about $30/day but does have in/out privileges.

The bed and bathroom situation would make me not stay there again.  This sucks because I spent a lot of time trying to find a good hotel for us to stay in.

This was a special weekend for me, we decided to go on a spur of the moment romantic getaway. Days prior to our arrival, severe storms ripped through southern cali. All traces of rain completely disappeared once I touched down, the sun peeked out and glistened all weekend for us. The stars were aligned and it was the most perfect weekend in my favorite city!  

The Omni is a monumental masterpiece right at the edge of the harbor in a prime downtown location. We were upgraded to the twentieth something floor. The view was absolutely breathtaking, especially with the sunset. Our direct view was that of the Marriott hotel, Coronado bridge and the bay, directly below was the pool and to the side- Padres stadium. [See Photos]

The room is spacious, modern and classy. Beds comfortable with fluffy pillows, walls-soundproof. Bathroom has one slight disadvantage, the wall that looks out into the bedroom has built in wooded blinds, okay for couples, not so great for friends or co-workers who value privacy and sleep.  I made sure to keep the blinds closed and pulled downward from inside to avoid waking my precious snoozer- the noise and light from the bathroom will flood the quiet morning room.  

The entire staff including the concierge and valet guys are so darn friendly, I'd stay here every weekend if I could. Everything is nearby so taxi fares are reasonable. Valet is pricey, park in the nearest garage across the street and save yourself some money in this wretched economy.

First, the positives:

The location is great, especially if you are in town to go to baseball games. There's an exclusive skyway to get to Petco Park. It's really nice to avoid the crowds leaving the stadium. At least some MLB teams stay there too, so you'll have a reasonably good chance to see or interact with players and announcers.

The staff is incredibly solicitous. They're obviously putting a lot of effort into customer service. Everyone with whom we spoke was friendly and helpful.

The loyalty club, Omni Select Guest, is free to join and comes with nice benefits. When we arrived at the hotel, we were already checked in. They had a little folder with our keys and door hangers for morning beverage ready to go. Morning coffee (or juice) is complimentary, and it's a nice touch.

Room service is not terribly expensive, and it is delivered quickly. Our first room service dinner was so good, we got exactly the same thing the next night! It perhaps wasn't as good the second time around, but it was still pretty good.

The only negative I have, which perhaps isn't fair, is that it's really pricey. For that kind of money, I'm expecting something more opulent.

I don't know that we will stay here again, even if we are going to more games at Petco, but the only reason we'd stay elsewhere would be a conscious tradeoff of less luxury and poorer location for a lower rate.

No doubt that this is an expensive hotel, but with my strings, I'm able to get this place for 108/night on holidays and sometimes cheaper on non-holidays.  I love this hotel.  The rooms are clean, the bedding is super comfortable, and depending on where your room is, the view is spectacular.  I get the special guest VIP thingy, so I call ahead, check in my room, and when I get there, I just go up to the wall where they have the keys, find my name pick up my packet and up to my hotel room.  Always, they have a plate of chocolates and fruit as well as a few bottles of water for me waiting.

The Omni offers a free "select guest" program which allows you to have 2 breakfast beverages per person (coffee/tea/milk/hotchocolate/juice) delivered to your door, clothing pressing for 2 items free among other little things.  It comes super handy.  They also have evening turndown service which is awesome, and I never turn it down.  The free bathroom amenities are pretty nice too.  

The big thing is their fitness room and pool area.  It's really nice.  Free towels, strawberry/lemon/orange fruit pieces in water for free and clean.

It's right next to the padre's stadium and the hotel has a sky bridge right there and it's located right next to the convention center and gas lamp district.  Seriously...my favorite hotel.

The thing that makes this place stand out is the hotel staff.  Everybody is friendly, super nice, really helpful and are happy to help you.

There are 2 downsides: the bathroom door doesn't lock, it's like a sliding patio door and you can kinda hear everything that goes on. Also, parking is terrible. 30/night with as many in and out privledges here, which stinks, but honestly, there's NO OTHER parking available, really.  If you have more than one car, I suggest having 1 car to do the valet and the other just park in the garage for the whole time.

Overall, wonderful place to stay at, and everytime I come to SD I stay here as long it's still the special discount I get.  As far as I know, you can get cheap rates on priceline

Remember the movie "My Cousin Vinny", where Joe Pesci can't get to sleep because of the train whistle?  Bay-side room at the Omni?   I was woken up at 3am with the train horn.  The tracks run close to the hotel on that side.  This is my main complaint.

Overall the hotel was very nice with good service, a clean and comfortable room.  The 6th floor terrace is a good place to relax.  The restaurant is the usual over-priced mediocre food you would expect from most hotel restaurants.  The service was very good.

A good location and I would come here again, with the exception of the bay-side room.

The Omni is located in an ideal spot for experiencing the sights and sounds od Downtown San Diego. With Petco Park right next door and restaurants and shopping close by, this hotel is a great place for business or pleasure.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the omni this past week as an anniversary staycation...we are from carlsbad.  Even though we were first shown to a room with a horrible view the service was very friendly and accommodating when we asked to switch twice.  We hated to be a pain but didn't want to have an unpleasant experience for our once a year night without the kiddos.  We finally ended up in a cozy room with a great view of the city that got even better as the night went on and the night lights came alive.  The hotel is very clean, every staff member we ran into greeted us with a friendly hello, and the beds were very comfortable.  The only downfall is the $38 parking fee but we parked across the street for $15 and it worked out perfectly for us since we didn't need in and out privledges and were planning on walking or taking a cab for dinner and drinks.  I would definitely consider omni again especially if we are able to catch a padres game in combination!

Won bid on priceline for $62 a night.

Pros: prime gaslamp location, accommodating  staff, room feng-shui including the bathroom (problematic if sensitive to privacy or stage fright), free newspaper of choice and wi-fi if Omni Select Guest (sign up online for free), view of Petco Park

Cons: valet parking is $32 daily (parking across the street in the "Ace" structures is $16 max daily but no ins and outs but you can go block or two north which offers similar price for in-n-out access),  no HD LCD

Misc: periphery noise like tram and adjacent Hard Rock was not a factor

The Omni is a phenomenal hotel.

Let's start with what I think is most important in a hotel - the bedding. My bed had a medium-firm mattress with plush pillows and comforter. The sheets felt nice to the touch as well, and all of it was spotlessly clean. You spend most of your time at a hotel sleeping, and I think the bed is what really matters.

Moving on to lesser affairs, the Omni also shines in terms of location, the in-house restaurant, and service.

Location-wise, the Omni is just a couple of blocks from the convention center, if you are in town for an event (my ninth-floor room had a great view of the center and avenue it's situated on). It's also situated in the heart of the Gas Lamp district of San Diego, which means you are walking distance from loads of nice restaurants and entertainment hot spots. I don't imagine there is a better location for a tourist.

I also dropped in on the in-house restaurant, a McCormick & Schmick's seafood place. They have a great happy hour special where you can get fantastically priced appetizers (5 large shrimp for $1.95, 2 oysters for $3.95, etc.) along with your drinks, and that was a nice experience to sit down to after getting in on a late flight. I also had breakfast there one morning, and my only complaint was that the biscuits I substituted for the toast weren't any good.

Finally, the service is excellent, without being overbearing. When I arrived, they had my room keys ready to go, because I had checked in online. I think it was the fastest I have ever gotten from front desk to my room, ever. The doormen are on top of their game, and checking my bag with the concierge after I checked out on the final day was a breeze.

Basically, the Omni is everything you could ask for in a hotel. Bedding, rooms, and service were all A+.

I enjoyed staying at this hotel for business. When I booked my room I requested a late checkout for an extra fee which was super convenient as I didn't fly out until late that evening. I also requested a high-level room and was on the 22nd floor which was nice ...

Sizable rooms, great staff, nice decor, clean ... I also enjoy being a Gold Member which includes beverage delivery in the morning, coffee, tea, juice, etc. which allows you to request your preferred morning beverage to be delivered when you wake up.

It's within walking distance of nearly anything you could want and right in the middle of the Gaslamp quarter ...

Unfortunately the pool deck was under construction so it was a bit loud and noisy for reading by the pool .. other than that, fabulous stay.

This was my first visit to San Diego with my girlfriend on 5/26/13. I have to say the service at this hotel is by far the best I have seen so far. We got the room we requested and also got a late check out. The view on the 16th floor was breath taking. I had a great experience and it was well worth the price. If you are a AAA Membership they give you a discount for that. The Valet service was slightly pricey but that's what you have to pay for the location. They provide free wifi and also upon request they will provide a fridge and microwave at no additional cost. I will definitely stay at this hotel again if I were to visit San Diego in the future.

The wife and I were going to Hard Rock for NYE this year. This was our second time in a row. Last year we stayed at the Hard Rock, but that proved to be a huge mistake -- the elevators took forever and the party continued well into the morning, like check-out time.

Not wanting to wait 35 minutes each time we returned to our room or be kept awake until 10am, while still enjoying the benefits of having a room near the party led us to choosing the Omni as our NYE pre-party / after-party choice.

The room was pretty basic. It was nice though.

In room entertainment -- The TV was probably first sold in '96 which was weird since a 27" LCD is like $350 at WalMart now. The alarm clock has an input jack, so you can hook up your phone/mp3 player/iPod, that was pretty cool.

The bed -- It was comfortable. Comfortable enough to pass out on at 3am...

The bathroom -- Large and nice. It had all of the things required and a huge shower. The door is weird and doesn't block much. When we had guests back after the party was over, I had to run the sink in order to pee (stage fright).

Hotel overall -- The staff was very friendly and efficient. The check in process took like three minutes and you can check out on your TV. The door guys were helpful and pleasant. The valets get pissy if you try to park immediately out front of the lobby and load/unload your baggage, just tell them to suck it.

Great hotel, great prices, great location.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our corner room on the 15th floor had a view of Gaslamp and the bay.

Reasons for the missing fifth star:
-  The wifi signal in our room was non-existent.  Staff have apparently noticed a pattern and are working to resolve it.
-  I loved the decor of the room, but the bathroom was a little odd.  It had sliding doors with Venetian blinds, and then more blinds in openings on either side of the sink.  What this meant was that there wasn't as much separation between the main room and the bathroom as you might find in a traditional hotel.  The design looked fantastic, but in actual use it took some getting used to.  Not sure if this is unique to the corner rooms, or if it is in all of the rooms in the hotel.

That said, The Omni is on my short list for future San Diego trips, and I'll be looking at their properties in other cities as well.

We had a wonderful stay--the room was very clean; the view was gorgeous; the staff (and especially valet Joe) were absolutely fantastic.

Only missing one star because of the bathroom door, which doesn't really shut due to its design.

My stay at the Omni was fabulous!  Definitely ask for an ocean facing room if you can get it.  Our room had a balcony over looking both the city and the ocean.  Had a perfect view of the fireworks for July 1st. The rooftop pool was a great bonus and the staff was more than accommodating.  Even room service was good!  Amazing location... walking distance to bars, restaurants, shopping.  My only complaint would be that it's about 15/20 minutes from the beach but we were looking to stay in the city so if that's what you're looking for the Omin is a must.  I'll definitely be staying here again on my next trip to san diego.

What a beautiful hotel! I was lucky enough to stay here on business during a particularly cold week in New York. It was 75 degrees and sunny (like it always is in San Diego!) so that alone gave the entire experience 5 stars.

The hotel staff was so polite and accommodating. Everyone had a smile on wherever you went. The lobby serves Starbucks and complimentary lemon ice water. Rooms were spacious, had great views, comfortable beds and bathrooms stocked with high quality amenities. I ordered room service. It was expensive (but what room service isn't). They gave me more food than I could finish though, so I can't really complain. And for 12am at night it was surprisingly fresh and delicious.

The real reason I give this hotel 5 stars though is the gorgeous roof deck, pool and jacuzzi. I was in heaven laying out in the sun there! Just gorgeous!

I got in on the $99/nt deal from Travelzoo recently so decided to spend last weekend here. The place was great and we got a room on the 21st floor with a beautiful view of downtown SD. It also happened to be the Jimmy Carter suite floor, but that's not something I can afford but dream of.

For an upscale hotel such as this, I would've expected LCD/Plasma tvs. Instead, we got a crappy old TV. Not the end of the world but it kind of changes the perception of the room. There wasn't any locks on the restroom door, so it might be a bit of a headache if you are sharing with friends.

If you sign up to be their Select guest members, you get free internet access, bottle water, and also newspaper delivered to your door. I found that out during my stay there so didn't get to take the full advantage of the membership. I would highly recommend everyone to sign up. It is complete free.

Parking for me wasn't too bad. Right across the street there was a self parking lot. The rates were $8 from 6pm-3am and $1 every hour after that. My total for a day came out to be $16, which wasn't too bad comparing that to the valet, which was $32. I can't really complain much because everything is within walking distance from almost everywhere in the gaslamp district.

Especially for a chain hotel, I was very impressed!

LIKES:
1. Location, location, location!  Right in the Gas Lamp district, a stone's throw away from a ton of great places to eat and go out.
2. Clean!
3. Decor - new and modern!
4. Comfortable, huge bed
5. BATHROOM - Clean, big, and awesome shower.  Really roomy - everything I could have wanted in a bathroom.
6. Easy check-in and check-out

Definitely nicer than some of the big name fancier, boutique hotels I've stayed at.  If you're looking for a nice place but are the type of person that doesn't like chains, don't discount this Omni!  I've traveled a lot, have been fortunate enough to stay at some really nice hotels, and still highly recommend it!

Our new hotel primary hotel for SD!
Room was clean, open and had great views of the harbor, pool and bridge. The bathroom had slats in the wall to make it feel even more roomy. We loved our little balcony. Could of sat there all night listening to the fountains and watching the harbor.
Room service was good. Pricey, but thats pretty much the norm. The waiters were very nice and friendly.

All in all, we'll stay there again and I can't wait.

My in-laws stayed here the past two times they visited San Diego, and they absolutely love it. The rooms are great (clean, very nice, and great views available), the service is incredible, and the location is perfect. I haven't stayed here myself, but I have visited their rooms, and I would love to in the future if there are ones in different cities (although, I don't think we could afford it...). Also, on your first night they leave milk and two chocolate chip cookies in your room as part of the turndown servce. If that's not a dealmaker then I don't know what is. Basically, the Omni is a four star hotel for a reason (whereas, I can't say the same about the Hardrock downtown, where the quality of rooms is much lower).

Also, awesome access to Petco!

Last December, the bf had his company Christmas party on one Friday at the Marriott nearby, but instead of staying there he decided to book a room at the Omni due to the good reviews we saw online.

I'm glad he made the choice because although it was just for one night, we enjoyed our stay and couldn't ask for anything better.

As we arrived and drove up to the front entrance, we were immediately approached by polite valet service and an accommodating bellhop who helped us unload our clustered luggage. He reloaded them onto the cart and brought it in to the lobby, while we went ahead to check-in. He later followed us to our room to complete the luggage transfer.

Front desk was courteous and friendly. Check-in went smoothly and although we booked our room over the phone last minute (a night prior to the trip) they managed to accommodate us to the 18th floor (upper level) room. The rate varies by date, but I think my bf got a rate somewhere between $120~130 for the night with his AAA card discount.

The hotel offers a complimentary loyalty program called the Select Guest and the receptionist enrolled us at the time of check-in. It seemed like every guest is given this opportunity and is automatically enrolled. This service provided us with complimentary WiFi, water bottles in the room, morning beverage room service (which we ended up wasting because we forgot to hang the order form on our door that night... it's worth taking advantage of, if you'd like fresh coffee, tea or OJs in the morning!) and express check-out.

When I checked their website later on, this program included other features such as complimentary newspaper and evening housekeeping service including turndown. If you're one of those frequent travelers, you'll definitely benefit from it since they can upgrade you to the next level with more benefits as you increase the number of your stay.

Our room was clean and smelled fresh as we requested a non-smoking room. The ambiance and color of the interior was warm with beige and brown tones. A comfy king size bed with clean, crisp sheets welcomed us. Bathroom had nice bright lighting at the sink and fully stocked with bath amenities. A dryer and bathrobes for two were provided as well. Shower had a strong stream of hot water running and the tub was clean.

The night of the arrival, we never had to take our car or a taxi, as we walked to all our destinations including the lively bar areas of the Gaslamp district. The location was absolutely convenient.  

The morning after, we took advantage of the nearby Petco Park area, which is walking distance. Soon after we woke up, we went for a jog to wear off the booze from the partying night before. We ran along the train tracks for a bit and went up the pedestrian bridge to the other side by the harbor. There you get a stretch of a boardwalk where you can run for a few miles. The chilly, but sunny weather completed our refreshing morning workout.

The only down part, if I were to point out was the cigarette smoke smell that reeked soon after we settled in. We had our windows closed though. As we left the hotel for the night, we stopped by the front desk to ask and they said it was due to the smoking floor on the 15th floor and the smoke probably drifted up. The receptionist was sincerely apologetic and immediately offered to have our room refreshed via housekeeping. We took the offer. When we returned later that night, the room smelled better.

The comfortable experience at the Omni was the highlight of my short trip. Not even the bars or the company Christmas party! I'd love to stay here again if I'm visiting SD. Thank you Omni :)

This place is wonderful. I bid 80 bucks on Priceline and was awarded this property. From the valet to the front desk.. everyone was happy, polite, and pleasant. People were walking dogs (pet friendly and allergy friendly- just ask, you'll get feathers, no feathers, pets, no pets). I didn't have my pooch, but she would have been happy. The room was elegantly appointed- silent (very important to me), with great temp controls, and audio/visual stuff. A complimentary carafe of coffee or tea or juice sits outside your door.. want a NY Times? There is is. The bed and bedding were, oh, so perfect I almost did not want to get out of it. Need Starbucks? Go to the lobby, it's in a little corner store that (I kid you not) has everything. Walking distance to a bunch of stuff, and 15$ overnight parking is across the street. San Diego is dreamy anyway, but the Omni makes it dreamier. Oh yeah.

Register for the Omni guest club (free) and get free wifi. That's right, free and fast, baby.

I stayed here about two weeks ago.  The rooms were very clean, and while the room was not the most modern looking of "modern" type hotels like the Hard Rock or Se, it did the job.  No plasma's or flat screens, but we only needed a bed, so it wasn't a big deal.  The beds were very comfortable, maybe even too much for me since my bed is not near half as soft.  Since I work for the state, I was able to get the sweet government rate at $130, otherwise it would have been over $200.  Two thumbs up for the government rate!

On a more "DOH!" moment, I left my iPod at the hotel plugged in the mp3 player.  Note to self...check the entire room next time.

Great hotel, good service, decent prices and great location.  

Its right next tot he PETCO stadium.. Good walking distance to many bars in the gaslamp area.. Its right across the street from Hard Rock..  Being in downtown definitely means expensive parking..their parking rates run from $29-35 a night but if you pass the hotel and make a left..theres a parking structure which charges only $1 an hour.. Which is a better deals.. Stayed over for 2 nights and only paid $20 for parking..

Hotel also has McCormick's in the lobby area and they offer happy hour from 3-7 and 930-11, which is great if you get hungry..Also theres a subway a block away which is open 24hours too for $5 subs..

Great location, reasonably priced and DOG FRIENDLY woot woot!

I booked this place for $78 on priceline and was thoroughly pleased by my experience. The floors in the rooms are hardwood, the decore is modern (there was a weird wall paper of green plants on one wall though) and despite the pets being around, no noise or smells!

Smart tip is to join their rewards program which they honor even if you book through priceline, unlike some of the other hotel chains. They offer two free beverages for you and your guest (delivered room service style to your room), free newspaper, free shoe shining, 2 pieces of laundry pressed for free...did I mention free wifi (regularly $9.95)? What's not to love? Okay, so maybe the television is outdated, but OTHER THAN THAT.

The service at this hotel rocks too- everyone was really polite and helpful. When I called down to the front desk because I'd been charged for the internet, they cleared things up without any hassel.

I'll definitely be checking out more Omni properties and coming back to this one. :)

EDIT: Pet fee is $50 non-refundable/40lb or less.

Sweet hotel, sweeter staff, and the sweetest location in San Diego.

So this review is based on the two times I went here:

The first time I was here was about a year ago. I booked a room on Priceline for around $70. The room was nice, yet simple, and it came with a view of Petco Park. Now here is the cool thing about my experience: if you ever book a room at a 5 star hotel and get it on the cheap, they usually book you into smaller "not-so-nice" rooms. But when we checked in I asked for a room with a view of the ballpark, and they granted it to me, while being very nice and accommodating about it.

The second time I went was last night, around midnight. I went to the area to pick up a friend from a gig, but decided to find a coffee house to get a latte and do some writing. Problem is, there are no coffee houses downtown that are open 24/7. So I went to the Omni and got a latte and sat in the lobby to use their free wifi.

The latte was good but was at Starbucks prices. The lobby wifi was shoddy, but it did the trick.

But at the end of the day nobody asked me for my room number to verify that I was a guest and they were friendly.

So all in all at this hotel you get great customer service, they work with you to see your needs met, regardless of how much money you booked your room for, and its a good solution for those who find themselves downtown and in a pinch to get some writing done over a latte.

Cool Hotel, but not cool enough to be spending 309/night!!

So I tried out Priceline.com for the first time and punched in a bid for 110, 4 star hotel and got placed at the Omni Hotel. Considering the hotel runs for 309/night without taxes, I was pretty psyched about spending the weekend there. The hotel is very clean, very hospitable staff. They have McCormick and Schmick's Seafood Restaurant downstairs and a skybridge that leads right into the Padre's stadium. It's 2-3 blocks from Gaslamp district and one side of the hotel overlooks the bay. It might have been psychological thing, but I swear the carpets in the corridor felt like clouds.

The room we got setup with was a 2 double bed on the sixth floor. It was pretty small and not as trendy/classy as I thought it would be. Our room overlooked the Convention center and was adjacent to the hard rock cafe (hotel). I was a bit disappointed that the room wasn't equipped with a LCD TV. It was just a simple 26" "flat screen", old-school TV. I checked out the pool and the gym, and they were both pretty standard.

I didn't have a bad experience here, nor did I think it was anything special. I didn't experience any "high-class" service, but I might have seriously over-hyped it up for myself. I guess I was expecting to be catered by some of the Padre's baseball players (since they didn't make the playoffs this year). The crowd this hotel caters to are really wealthy old farts. Considering I just go to the Gaslamp district to party, there's probably more economical options in the area.

A little about my credentials:

I just an average joe, that travels a lot for business and pleasure. I'm an Elite Premier member for United, Gold Member for Marriott, and Gold Member for Hilton Honors Reward. I usually book hotels in the range of 130-160/night depending on location, amenities, and the year the hotel was built/renovated. I'm a pretty reasonably easy person to cater and I don't have very high expectations out of anyone.

Arrived at around 11PM on a Thursday night. Staff was for the most part cordial but not overly helpful (except for Esteban from Engineering who helped us change rooms since our AC was broken). The girl who answered the phone at the front desk when I called about the AC was rude, accusatory, and could definitely have used a lesson in phone etiquette.

Overall nice room (better than the W in Hollywood) and ideal location.

Always great, except for the lousy morning we had this trip.

They decided to do construction on the room next door at 8:00a. Palm sander on the wall, no sleep for Dan. House keeping pounded and yelled for room cleaning and almost stroked me out. Probably trying to yell over the construction ;)

Other than that, I love it 20 times yes, 1 time no.

Made my trip extra special and love the proximity to everything.  I agree the valet parking is high but it is like that in every hotel in San Diego (even ones that are not downtown).  Bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet.  Would love to come again.

I had a regular King room on the top floor. My general experience was great. The room was clean, the staff were friendly, and I really liked the spacious bathroom.

However, it did bother me that the room was very small. It was probably the size of two king beds put togheter. I felt like the bathroom was almost as big as the bed room. Also, it bothered me that the TV is not flat screen (I guess that is just pure OCD), which made the hotel appear older than it actually is. But in general, it was very clean and a pleasant stay. The windows of the room were very big, but the view was the Marriott across the street (not particularly exciting).

For its cleanliness, service, and very satisfying interior decor, it definitely deserve a 4 star.

Quick tips:
- Sign up for Omni membership (free) you get free wifi at the hotel.
- If you work for any government institution (i.e. my bf and I both work at a state hospital), the hotel rate is substantially cheaper--131.00/night.

This hotel features modern rooms with anything you could possibly need. No really, anything. Bathrooms are stacked with things like cotton balls, swabs, lotions, etc. Most rooms have amazing views of the bay and Petco Park. Too bad there were no games on during my stay, I could have watched the crowds from my windows.

1-minute walk to the convention center makes this place a must if you're on business travel. It couldn't have been more convenient for me in my ankle breaking 4" high heels at 8.50 in the morning.

McCormick's Steakhouse which is located on the ground floor of the hotel came in really handy for a quick cocktail before bedtime.

The gym in this hotel is perfect. A great mix of cardio and strength equipment, large mirrors so I can stare at my butt throughout my workout (is it getting smaller yet?). I loved the towels that were placed on each cardio equipment and the water dispensers (regular or with fresh lemons) were great since I forgot my bottle in the room. Headsets are provided for the machines that feature a TV.

I ended up making use of the pool/hot tub the last evening of my stay. That water in the jacuzzi was HOT (lobster effect anyone?), but so nice and relaxing after a long day of work once my body got accustomed to the temperature.

Service was impeccable to top it all off and my granola breakfast was yummy! Would stay here again in a heart beat whether it's a business trip or for pleasure.

This review is solely for an event I attended here.

My cousin had her elaborate wedding here. From what I heard, they spent close to $100K. The venue was gorgeous. They had a reception/cocktail area with goodies, drinks and a pretty balcony overlooking the bay. When you walk in, the reception room was decorated to the T. It was truly a princess wedding.

The venue, service and food were great. The dance area sufficed for our big group of about 300+ guests. This is prob the most $$$ wedding and reception that I have been to and it surely reflected during this reception here at the Omni. Simply gorgeous...

Nice hotel with a modern feel. I stayed here on a business trip. Tons of things to do and see within walking distance. The only real issue I see is there are only 4 elevators, which results in crammed elevators and stops at almost every floor during "rush hour" traffic.

I love this hotel for kids and Padre games.  They make it so easy to stay downtown with or without tour family.  My kids love to stay there because they get toys and a cookie with milk.  Only once did they forget to deliver the cookies to our room before bed.  I recommend this hotel to families and couples alike for the convience and ease of the downtown environment.

Great location.  Nice hotel with nice rooms.  I wouldn't say that I was overwhelmed by this hotel in any way.  It's great for its location and the fact that you can walk to anywhere in the gaslamp or roll over and you're at a Padres game.  Check-in was smooth, but they weren't falling for any of our not-so-subtle requests for some sort of upgrade for our 10th anniversary.  We ended up paying $20 for a better view, and they sent up a demi-bottle of red wine for us.  We signed up for the rewards club so that we could get free internet and morning drinks (coffee or juice) delivered to the room.  Decent perk, but the internet fee still showed  up on the bill so we had to go get them to take it off at the front desk.  Not a big deal, but a nuisance.
I would definitely go back if I could get the same very low rate, but I wouldn't want to pay big bucks for this hotel.  Great location, but not a lot of personality.

My boyfriend and I went to San Diego to ring in the new year, and I have to say we had a really great time.  We were located right in the Gaslamp Quarter, right next to Petco Park, with a really pretty view of the SD Convention Center and the water behind it (see pictures of our view).  

The staff was really friendly, and our hotel package was "Half Off For The Holidays."  We received complimentary coupons to restaurants, vouchers for free coffees from Morsel's (their cafe), complimentary valet parking every day, newspaper and beverages in the morning, turndown service, etc.  They stopped by daily to check the minibar to see if we needed refills, to refill our ice bucket, etc.  The valet guys gave us detour directions to get around the holiday traffic, and one even gave us ideas for alternate celebration sites if our plans fell through.  

The bed was nice and comfy, my boyfriend was super happy to easily locate the ESPN channel, free wifi with a guest select memebership.  Our balcony also looked over the pool and hot tub, and though it was chilly, people braved the pool and hot tub each morning (to our amazement).  

One strange thing was that the bathroom doors and walls contained shutters, so anyone in the room could easily hear anything going on in the bathroom.  For those that like privacy, this was a no-no.  And what is it with SD hotels not having fans in the bathrooms?  My advice is to run a little water while you handle business and bring a little can of room freshener so you don't waste your expensive perfume.  

Other than that, we really did have a great time.  You have the option to check out through the TV system or with a voicemail to the front desk.  We had a couple suites in sight from our room, so a suite is a definite goal for our next visit to the Omni.

The Omni is a beautiful hotel and is situated close enough to the Gaslamp District to walk, yet far enough where there is not much street noise. Most of the staff were friendly, check-in was smooth, and our regular king room was spacious and comfortable.

However, we did have a few complaints about our two-night stay. Our room on the eighth floor facing the convention center would rumble every time a train passed by. The train horns were outrageously loud and disturbed our sleep several times. Those staying next door were so noisy that I could hear every word of their conversation. We asked the front desk if we could possibly change to a quieter room, but she claimed that the only available room at our price level (military rate) was on the same floor and near the elevator. I suppose upgrading us was out of the question. Ear plugs are provided for guests though.

Ladies, bring your own toiletries as the quality of the products are not the best. Also, don't be deceived by the full-sized hair dryer. It lacks power and makes styling your hair even more time consuming. Lastly, be careful in the shower. The tub is ridiculously slippery and I had to catch myself from falling at least three times.

We would probably stay here again because of its prime location, but if we return we will request a higher room or one away from the train tracks.

Quick tips:
-Forgo $35/night valet parking. Go across the street for $14 overnight parking (with no in-and-out privileges)
-Sign up for free membership online to obtain access to wi-fi, turn down service, and water
-The pool area is gorgeous at night, but don't expect a romantic evening. Both the pool and spa are swarming with young children and families.

We took a road trip from the Bay Area to San Diego during the 4th of July weekend. We were 3 adults (me, my wife, my mother-in-law) and 2 children (2 yr old and 7 mo. old).

We booked the hotel via Hotwire.com . When we arrived we didn't want to use the valet parking ($38/day - ridiculous). We pulled in front of the hotel (there's a 10 mins loading/unloading zone) and I went to the front desk to check-in. Gave them my name and the credit card and got the keys in probably less than 5 minutes. I'd say the quickest check-in ever!

Parked the car right across from the hotel for $15/day ($1/hr. max of $15/day) which was nice. There's plenty of parking available since the hotel is close to the Padres ball park. If there is an event however, make sure you are already parked because otherwise you're screwed.

The hotel is is elegant and clean. The room had two double beds that proved to be too small for me and my wife (I expected that) but would work well for one adult or one adult and a toddler. Our 7 mo. had her own pack'n'play to sleep in.

The bathroom was clean and clearly newly renovated. The door to the bathroom is a bit weird since it doesn't close properly all the way. Because they renovated the bathrooms, they made better use of the space by probably removing the old door and putting in a sliding door which... unfortunately doesn't really close the bathroom all the way.

The shower was nice, i appreciated the curved drape bar: you don't have to worry about touching it when you shower since it stays further away from you. The water pressure I felt was nice too!

The view of the room was also nice, since we were there on July 4th we had an excellent view of the water front fireworks and could see all the way to the fireworks in Coronado.

We had breakfast only once at the Hotel's restaurant: McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant. The food was good, the service a bit slow and the waitress had one item wrong (the manager provided a free bowl of fruit for our son to make up for the slowness).

It's very likely I'd pick this hotel should I visit San Diego again. I will also be staying at the close by Hilton in August for a conference so it'll be nice to compare at that time.

I stayed at this prime Omni location twice, and I have ZERO complaints about it! (Crazy, because I am piccckkkyy) I really like this Omni!!

Location is incredible.
Customer service is top notch.
And it's so CLEAN!!! My numero uno most important thing about hotels: cleanliness. Omni definitely passes my test. :) I also really like the pool area!

You know what else is awesome? Wi-fi is free.

Last time I stayed here was last month. I woke up Sunday morning before all my friends, needed fresh air and detox, so I grabbed a big bottle of water and went down to sit by the pool. Fresh air, plenty of chairs, good views.

Check-out was easy peasy. Only minor gripe is that parking was a little much, $35/day. But it's the gaslamp, I guess that price tag is to be expected.

All in all, I think the Omni is the best hotel in the Gaslamp District!

I really loved this hotel. The bed was awesome. Ear plugs were provided for people who perfer to not enjoy the sounds of the trains or city. I was on the 21st floor and the views were breathtaking. The room was supplied with premium coffee. A premium steakhouse located on the first floor and my favorite seafood pub located next door.

The only thing I didn't care for was the peek-A-boo shutters on the bathroom that limits privacy as well as no lock on the bathroom doors.  No exhaust fan in the bathroom, leaves the party on the potty embarrassed as well as the person holding their breath in the sleeping area.

And last, the charge for parking for most of the hotels downtown! I felt violated paying so much. I'm sure it lessens the tip amount for the Valets.

I would tell a friend. And I will return soon.

Very convenient to convention center as well as the Gaslamp District in downtown San Diego.  Have stayed here twice and been quite satisfied.  Front desk was quite friendly and the rooms are clean.  Basic benefits from Omni SelectGuest are quite good  - complimentary Internet, well appointed  rooms, good sized desk, mini bar, flat screen television.

Unlike some of the other reviewer comments, I found that my room was quiet - maybe it is location dependent.

The breakfast choices at McCormick's and Schmick's were very good.  Although, the restaurant was always crowded for breakfast, we were always seated quickly.  A good breakfast at a business hotel is always important, because many times - especially if one is spending the day at the convention  center - lunch may not be a viable option.  Here, the Omni certainly doesn't disappoint.  

My experience with staff interaction was very positive - whether dealing with the front desk or getting a cab, all were very professional and courteous. Overall a very good hotel experience.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Omni on our staycation recently. The rooms were clean, bright, and modern without being to hip or trendy - ie. the Hard Rock across the street. We stayed at the Hard Rock previously and was kept awake all night by the DJ at the bar right below our suite. The Omni provided a room with a view of the water, large windows, and plenty of natural sunlight. Hard Rock - room was dark and the modern furniture was uncomfortable - couch and bed seemed to close to the ground. Breakfast downstairs was fast and priced well at $12.99 with complimentary biscuits (warm and soft) and strawberry with cream. The service was fantastic. Bathrooms were clean and seemed more spacious with a stand alone sink and cabinets along the side versus your typical counter top. We love the Omni!

Just stayed here for the weekend.   I got a road package for $230 a night including free breakfast $40, wifi $10 and Valet $35 per night. So it really helped save me money.   The breakfast was at McCormicks and Schmidts so it was top notch.  The room was as nice as you can expect with a view of the bay.  For the price and service, this was a five star experience.   It's also in the gaslamp district so the location couldn't be better

The Omni San Diego has hands-down some of the best service I've ever experienced in a hotel. We came last Friday night to celebrate my friend's birthday--we walked into the room (highest floor with a beautiful view of Gaslamp) and there was a bottle of champagne and a little dessert plate for her. What a way to be welcomed :) Then when we called for 6 more champagne glasses, they sent them up with 6 more chocolate covered strawberries! We felt so special. I also called down for a toothbrush because I forgot mine--it was there in like five minutes. The room was beautiful, very modern and updated with lots of room to get ready, even in a standard room. Lighting in the bathroom was great. Beds were SO comfortable!!!  Omni could not be in a more perfect location - right in the heart of the Gaslamp. We went to Stingaree and it look five minutes to walk there. And it's literally RIGHT next to Petco Park! Staff was very nice and accommodating--May Beth checked us in and was so sweet. I wish we could remember who checked us out Saturday morning, he was also a super nice guy. Be aware of parking prices-- $38 to valet (pretty standard for a downtown area hotel), but one of my friends parked at the structure across the street and it was $15.

We stayed here the 2nd week of September & had an absolutely wonderful time!  Check in was super quick & easy & every employee that we came in to contact with was friendly and accommodating.  The Omni is so convenient to everything in downtown san Diego.  We didn't have a car & relied on public transportation & walking.  We never had a problem!  Loved everything about this hotel & hope we get to return soon to San Diego just to be able to stay here again!

I stayed here for work, working at the BlogHer convention across the street at San Diego Convention Center and was a high-maintenance, annoying business guest with 8 million packages coming in and lotsa requests, and the Omni handled it all extremely smoothly.  They got us a nice suite on the 18th floor with a perfect view of the ball park which served me very well when I crammed multiple giggling women in there for my company's private BlogHer party.

Room service is by McCormick & Shmick's and is pretty decent, the complementary coffee you get as an Omni "Select Guest" however, was not very good, but at least it showed up on time.

Definitely check out the pool. I did, but only to soak my miserable feet after three days of trade show insanity.

Stay at this hotel from 9/7-9/9 for my 24th birthday and only have good things to say!

Check-in was quick and easy, I scored a room on the Northeast corner of the hotel which had a sweet view of Petco Park and downtown's skyline. The room was larger than expected, so I was stoked on that...especially since there'd be people crashing there throughout the weekend. It was clean, the beds were amazingly comfortable, and the shower's water pressure was amazing! I read the reviews before I booked the room, so I knew I should become a rewards member for the free OJ in the morning, and also was aware of how expensive the valet was, so I stayed away from that and just parked in the structure across the street for $12 a day compared to whatever valet is.

The 1st floor hotel restaurant & bar (McCormick and Schmidts I think?) was awesome. Bartenders were attentive and I had some hummus and pita which was delicious. Prices weren't bad. Then I went up to the 6th floor pool bar and had drinks with a friend overlooking the bay. I was surprised the pool was as small as it was, I expected it to be bigger. We used the pool Saturday day and it was pretty crowded, we had to wait a bit before lounge chairs opened up. Ordered the ceviche and some French fries from the pool grill and neither disappointed.

One thing that won made this hotel stand out over others I've stayed at in the past was waking up to an ice bucket with waters, champagne, and chocolate covered strawberries with a handwritten letter from the employees wishing me a happy birthday. I (nor any of my friends) had notified the hotel it was my birthday, so they must have noticed it on my rewards notification profile and sent the complimentary stuff up. It actually was probably sent that Friday night because when I saw it Saturday the ice was melted.

Another highlight was getting to use the skybridge to Petco Park!

I was pleased with everything, and look forward to staying here again!

My family (wife, two kids 8 and 5) purchased the Sea World package, which included 4 tickets to seaworld, two nights stay (two queen beds), complimentary breakfast at McCormick & Schmick's and parking. I also got two free drinks in the morning and free wifi as I signed up to a be a Loyalty member. Overall the package was very reasonably priced and as important the service the second we parked the car until we left was memorable.

the room was clean and comfortable. Great view of the water and convention center. some great views of the ball park from the other side of the hotel. Pool and work out area on 6th floor was very nice. Front desk, car valet and baggage folks were great. Great breakfast for kids and grown ups each day with outdoor seating. Kids were greeted with a bucket each for the sand, cookies and some sort of an adventure map. Location is fantastic..at the bottom of the gas lamp, with in walking distance of many great restaurants and bars as well as Petco park.

In my top 5 hotel experiences of all time.

This is an update to my previous review.  Had the opportunity of staying here again.  I recommended this hotel to my closest girlfriend for her birthday.  She was just as impressed as I was on my first stay here.  

This time, we had the double bed (it's not a double queen, it's a double double) so the beds were small but I guess it's because of the size of the room.  Both beds were still so very comfortable.  The room was a general size.  I wouldn't call it spacious.  The one bedroom suite definitely had more living in it.  I favor the one bedroom more than this one, but nonetheless it was spotless and not a flaw to be found.

I recommend asking for this room facing the view.  The scene was spectacular and no extra money out of your pocket to view it!  Large glass windows from floor to ceiling covering the entire end of the room gives you a panoramic ocean view of San Diego Bay from Coronado to Harbor.  The sunset was absolutely gorgeous.  The mornings here were bright and beautiful. You also have a great peek of downtown. I have to say this was the highlight of this room.

Once again, the customer service was nothing short of perfection. From front desk, bell hop and valet - so professional, proficient and friendly!  The Omni throws out great deals and rooms at discounted rates so we were able to take advantage of one of them which came with free valet and generous food credit.  Still LOVE this hotel better than the HRH, Marriott Marquis, Hilton and Sheraton (not to put you guys out but hey man step up your game!). Still recommending it and looking forward to my next stay here!

This has to be the All Time best Hotel in San Diego...even when the Padres are not playing at home. We loved the view, the staff, and most of all Mr. Brian Hughes the General Manager. He took care of us and made sure our stay was like we were some sort of VIP guests. So cool that everything was withing walking distance in the Gaslamp District. We just parked our car with the Valet and we walked everywhere. The place was so spick and span clean, and mellow we wish we could stay there forever. Thanks Omni Hotels...you Rock!!!

Stayed here for a work-related conference.  Very nice atmosphere and amenities.  Great staff.  The bed is comfortable (my most important criterion) and the High Def TV has all the cool channels except for AMC.  Wireless was free and the desk had easy to access electrical outlets for computers and chargers without looking like an eyesore.  

Good location and I guess this is a good place for baseball fans since there's a bridge over to the baseball stadium on the fourth floor.

The McCormicks and Schicks restaurant isn't the best place to eat in the area and they are kind of pricey but you can find a perfectly good hamburger and fries for $5 down the street and other fare within walking distance.  Not sure I would stay here if I was on my own dime but it passed my most important test for business-related travel and that is that none of my (hopefully) valuable time for business should be spent on lodging related issues and complaints.

My husband and I stayed at the Omni during the month of August.  From the first night to our last the service was top notch...better than top notch!  We were greeted everyday by our names ( no we didn't have name tags) I think everyone made it a point to know the guest..  Housekeeping everything and everyone was professional and friendly. We were served in our room fresh juice and hot coffee every morning. In the afternoon they had these amazing warm cookies. The pool and spa were clean and fresh. The attendant at the pool was wonderful.  The vales and bellmen were familer with the area of San Diego and provided us with great tips on where to dine and places to visit in the Gas lamp district. The Consigier even made arrangements for us to see a play.
One morning I requested hot tea and stated to them I had not felt well.  When the attendant came to the door he said they were sorry that I  had not felt well and  took it upon themselves to also bring lemon and honey and warm toast. Little things like that were so great. Clean towels and fresh water to drink always were available. I could go on and on about the quality of service but go and check it out for yourself!

This is hands down the best hotel I have ever stayed at.  Wedding weekend we stayed here.  Our wedding night they were gracious enough to send up complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries.  Valet parking available for a hourly rate and once you reach a certain level it's paid for for the entire day.  Otherwise you can self-park across the street.  Bell boy's are great as well.  Staff overall is accommodating but not overly involved.  

Critiques:  
Parking does seem a bit pricey but it's downtown San Diego

Room bathroom isn't very private as it has shutter like openings out to the room that can be closed/opened.

***If you think about it when you are making your reservation ask for a corner room as they seem to be much roomier than the center hallway rooms.

Here's a review I wish I never had the chance to write.

Thanks to unfamiliar pitch black surroundings I fell and shattered two ribs in the bathroom here. Ambulance. Hospital. The whole works.

The Omni staff were excellent. Tyrone in particular. There's no great way to talk to someone who cannot move lying face first on half hr bed- but he was great.

The management called to check up on me routinely. I will be back.

The gym is great. The walkway to the ballpark would be perfect for game day.

Oh and the way they treat Select guests makes me want to seek out Omni's from here on out.

My husband, the romantic, decided to surprise me with a the Ooh La La weekend at the Omni for my birthday. We had a corner unit overlooking the bay and while some people who left reviews complained about the train noise, it was a welcome sound for us. We even opened the windows so we could hear the falling rain. The room was well decorated and modern. Bed was soft, yet firm. The package included champagne and french delights including dipped strawberries and macarons... my favorite. We had a wonderful couples massage. Great birthday surprise!

Lived in SD for ages and have driven by this hotel when visiting Altitude and Petco park. Never had the urge to really visit the Omni as there didn't appear to be much about the place that interested me.

Wow. Was I wrong.

I think I must have the most amazing BF ever as he suggested this place for a mini getaway for the two of us.

If you go to their website and research their Special Offers, you will find great deals (complementary valet parking, food credit, etc).

We did the Sweet Rendezvous Romance Package. Didn't include the complementary valet parking (I think it's $29/night) but the other perks such as champagne, chocolates, $40 credit towards room service, turn down at night w/ romantic music, etc sounded great.

I hate hotels that demand valet parking. I don't get it. $29/night. For WHAT. Jeez man. BUT, I'm not sure why I wasn't so agro crazy this time around, but the valet parking at this hotel was great. The guys were quick, super nice, and just 'happy'.

Not sure about the ease of check in as the BF took care of this, but it appeared to be fast.

Upon entering our room on the 18th floor, I was shocked. Truly, hands down, a breathtaking view of the bay and downtown. And the hotel had arranged to have THE most beautiful flower arrangement prepared for the occasion per the BF's request (I'm sure this was an extra hefty charge).

A few things:

- champagne and chocolates weren't there upon us getting to room (no biggie as I was so elated about everything else and they managed to get the champagne/chocolates to us by 9p or so?)

- they forgot the turn down and setting the 'mood' for a romantic night upon us coming back from dinner (this was supposed to be part of the package, not b/c I'm a romantic weirdo)

- upon BF calling the Front Desk to tell them about all this, they credited us our pool bar tab from earlier in the day (this truly was an appreciated touch as I was disappointed about not getting the full package and was ready to personally walk down to Front Desk and letting them know my .02c)

- their restaurant McCormick & Schmick's served amazing food during lunch (fish and chips, clam appetizer, tacos, etc etc). Breakfast wasn't all that great but it helped that our package included a $40 credit towards it

- pool is small but quaint. Pool attendants are nice and attentive

- I felt that the prices of drinks (at the pool) and even room service (which we didn't order) weren't all that bad.

Overall, a really nice stay. Truly a memorable experience. I can't wait to go back if there's another package we can find. Thank you Omni San Diego!

I've stayed at the Omni Los Angeles years ago and loved their beds. So..with that pleasant nostalgic memory at hand, I was uber excited to stay there again. This Omni is in the heart of the Gas Lamp District, so screw driving and taking taxi's...Just walk to your nearest location. So, back to their beds. There is only one other hotel bed that can be compared to the Omni's...TI in Las Vegas. Omni beds are soft, plush, and feathery. I made a beeline to our bed as soon as we walked into the room.
Check off what you want for your complimentary breakfast and place it on your doorknob to be delivered at the requested time. Overnight parking is expensive, at $32/night. Great location, great beds, and perfect service. Yay! I'm a fan.

My family spent three nights here and, overall we were pleased with the hotel itself. It is very attractive, clean, bright and well maintained. The proximity to the Padres ballpark made attending a game very convenient. The staff was professional, although not always friendly, except for the bell / valet staff who were so helpful and welcoming every time we encountered them. I received incorrect transit information from the concierge, but fortunately we were able to figure it out.

Our initial reservation (bed configuration, etc.) was changed in the Omni system by an unknown entity. It took a while at check in to resolve the matter and the manager was very professional and helpful. Should I ever stay at an Omni hotel again I will completely review each my reservation a few days prior to arrival.

We had not been in SD for several years and I was surprised at how the Gaslamp District has become a hangout for party-going young adults. On the weekend nights they take over the sidewalks - making it difficult to walk to and from dinner. There is also a large police presence at night in the area surrounding the hotel. In addition, homeless hang out and sleep near the trolley station next to the hotel.

All in all, our stay was enjoyable; however, should we return to San Diego we would not stay at the Omni again

35 bucks for parking? Uh, I'll park across the street in the public structure.
As you are attempting to drift off to sleep, you are awoken by the constant crying sound of TRAINS from below. and, the "ocean view" is obstructed by the Hyatt in front of the hotel.
$45 bucks for room service mediocre pasta and a juice.
The bathroom is NOT very private from the room. That means if you take a love interest here and you have to take a dump, they will be able to smell it and hear it.
The room also needs more lighting. At 6am as you get ready to go, you can't see shit.
Other than that, the hotel is newly remodeled it seems, modern, nice layout.
Riley the valet guy is cool though. He helped us with our luggage even though we didn't park in their valet (of course we tipped him well).
Oh, and the room was $265 a night...came out to $302 with the BS taxes and fees.

I am a select guest.
We stayed here many times prior. I was extremely disappointed this time.
Made my reservation on the phone and I was assured that I would have a room overlooking the pool with a balcony. Upon arrival the front desk informed me that it will not be the case, no balcony nor pool side available.
Secondly, when I made my reservation I was not told the pool and spa were under construction, extremely dissaponting for my daughter.
The room had many cosmetic issues, the trim around the tv stand was falling off, wall paper was damaged, cups in the bathroom were dirty. There was trash on the shelf of the closet.
Not what my past experiences were like.

The room walls are very thin (you can hear your neighbor sneeze) Wouldn't recommend getting a hotel room that has the bay view. The train tracks are there this and the Dole shipping area are very noisy in my hotel room (which is on the 18th floor).
This hotel was under renovation and I would have appreciated a heads up at check in. From 9-5 constant construction noise from within the building as well as, outside pool and hot tub construction going on. It would have been nice to have been able to enjoy the hot tub on my vacation. The front desk was apologetic and didn't offer any other suggestions for the inconvenience.

The only good thing about this hotel is The hotel is 100% smoke-free, but small balconies are available.

Excellent stay for 6 nights over Christmas.  We booked 2 adjoining rooms and everything was almost perfect.   The location is fantastic, the Valet staff incredible, the housekeeping staff honest (returned lost iPad minutes after checking out).  Our 2 kids loved the extra attention and cookies on the first night.  The hotel is bit loud because of location in the heart of the action but that's to be expected and did not really bother us too much.  The pool deck is really nice and the hot tub was actually hot!  Nice job Omni.  We'll be back!  Tip- Sign up for Select Guest membership before arrival for free WiFi.

This hotel was conveniently in walking distance of everything. The Valet parking was pretty steep. $38 a day. Myself and 3 other friends stayed in a double on the 11th floor. Everything was neat and clean. The view was very pretty of the water over the convention center. I was disappointed there was no fridge. We were celebrating a friends 30th birthday and we wanted to chill some beverages. We made the bathroom sink a ice chest, it worked. The beds were kinda small. Last but not least the bathroom door was a sliding glass door that was so loud and didn't close all the way so you can hear people going to the bathroom. All in all it was a good stay..

My bf and I enjoyed a great weekend in San Diego and the location of the Omni played a big role in making that happen.  Choosing the Omni was the best decision because EVERYTHING was within a reasonable walking distance.  

The following are within a 15-20min walking radius....the bar scene of the Gaslamp District, Horton Plaza, the Marina neighborhood, Ghirardelli, House of Blues, convenient stores for bottles of gatorade to nurse my hangover, breakfast places to feast on greasy food (again, to nurse my hangover) and the list goes on and on.

The hotel itself is beautiful.  The upscale decor of the lobby made me re-think how much the weekend was going to cost us - eek!  But I think my bf was able to find a good deal online.  Gotta love the internet!  Seriously though, how did we manage to find any good deals pre-Google/Orbitz/Travelocity/RetailMeNot/­FatWallet/SlickDeals/etc days???  Even pre-Yelp days??? (I shudder at the thought!)

So, back to the Omni.  The rooms are spacious and contemporary.  It has all the stuff you would see at other hotels in the same tier - flat screen TV, bathrobes, nice toiletries and a fridge filled with a bunch of goodies.  

There was a HUGE downpour on one of the days we were there.  The heavens opened up and decided to flood San Diego.  Not a problem!  My bf and I killed some time perusing the hallways and wings of the hotel.  Tons of authentic Padre memorabilia are displayed throughout the hotel.  It was fun to learn the history and significance of each item.... a museum experience at the Omni!  We finally stepped out once the rain got lighter but I still look back on the fun we had at the hotel :)

I can't wait to go back!

The bathroom in this hotel is kind of strange.  In our room, the bathroom was not enclosed by walls, instead the bathroom had blinds that could be opened from the inside and the outside.  Also they had french sliding doors which in our room did not close all the way, so some one could see the toilet if they walked by the bathroom.  The inside of the bathroom was nice with a lot of towels and shelves.  Otherwise the hotel was very nice.  The bed was comfortable and the room was nice.  The staff was very nice.

I stayed here during a conference in SD at the convention center. You can't beat the location because it's right across the street from the convention center. The hotel is top notch, the rooms are nice and clean and it's right next to petco park. We could hear the game going on during the night. everything is within walking distance of this hotel, including gaslamp and it's right next to the train station if you want to travel out without driving. I would recommend staying here, just a warning about they do charge a hefty fee for valet parking per night if you plan to stay there ($35).

Girlfriend and I were visiting San Diego for the first time and, based on reviews, decided to stay at the Omni.  Overall our experience was pretty great.  Cant beat the location in Gas Lamp. Very walkable.  The room was nice, clean and had a great view.  Pool and hot tub area were clean and well maintained.  Everyone there was very nice and accommodating.

Only giving 4 stars because the bathroom had wooden blinds that opened up into the main room and the bathroom door (if you can call it that) didn't shut completely.  Also had to sign up for the hotel "rewards program" to avoid being charged $10 a day for internet (which they still charged me for and later removed).  Lastly, as others have mentioned, park at the non-hotel garage across the street and pay less than 1/2 the price.

Really nice hotel! The rooms are clean, modern-looking, and fairly new (except the TV, which is still old school box style). You can get a killer view of the Coronado Bridge and water if you are facing outwards. Extremely friendly staff. Location is great  because you can easily walk to some restaurants or take a cheap cab ride to the Gaslamp District.

Park in the garage structure across from the valet area; it's $9 a day.

Wow!! I was super stressed at work, and boy did I need a vacation! I didn't have the time or financial means to travel far away from home, so I opted for a last minute deal for a Virgin America flight down to San Diego.

This hotel was excellent and perfect for my needs. It was a little chilly during my stay, so it was excellent to be close to all the restaurants and night life in the Gaslamp Quarter!

The staff was accommodating, classy, but not intrusive. I recently suffered from a neck injury, and I called to request more pillows. They came up immediately with fresh, soft pillows! Excellent Service!!

I also noticed they have a private bridge to the Padres Stadium! Unfortunately, they weren't playing in December (I was hoping to see some touchdowns, home runs, goals, or whatever they call them). I look forward to coming back with some friends for a game!

Once again a lovely evening at the Omni.  As my husband just got back from deployment we booked the romance package. I'm not sure if the package or the return from deployment did it, but I'm pretty sure we had an upgraded room.  Our room had a Romeo and Juliet balcony. (Rm 1726), we had a great view of the bridge to Coronado.   All the employees were friendly and wonderful.

Once again my only complaint is the bathroom door. This room had two doors that slid together and did not close all the way.  It would really be nice to have a real bathroom door!

My favorite hotel when I stay in San Diego.  The rooms are nice, the staff is nice.  If you join Omni's loyalty club, for free, they will give you free morning beverages.  Coffee and a variety of juices are offered.  They even deliver them to your room and will even just knock and leave them outside the door.  Plus free wifi.

Great location.  The valet is about $30 a day and it is the best designed valet in San Diego.  The others make it such a pain to get in and out and get your car.  Great deals on the weekends.  My first choice when traveling to San Diego.

Great Pool Area

Located in South Gaslamp across from Petco park and convention center. The best room is on corner -- one side bay view and other side balcon, some rooms with view of ballpark. Next to Hard Rock and Marriot for clubbing. Parking is standard city (about $36) but across the steet is an Ace parking structure (the same building the Hotel valet parks in). Great pool and lounging area. Walking to everything in Gaslamp.

Pricelined a room for $90 and was happy with what we got. It was CP's birthday so I really wanted it to be special. The staff was nice, the room was beautiful and we had a lovely time. I was pretty disappointed that in the two nights we were there room service never cleaned our room. We are pretty clean people so it's not like that was an actual problem but I was interested in a little more shampoo and conditioner in the mini bottles. Ah well. We ordered room service one night and that was crazy prompt. They said fifteen minutes and it was really more like ten. Plus, it was a pretty awesome apple pie a la mode. I wish I had known they have a DVD player in the room!! Don't forget your movies for late night viewings. Thank goodness Harry Potter was on our entire stay. phew.

I did really appreciate the central location of this hotel. Everything we wanted to do in San Diego was within a mile walking distance of our hotel. It was so convenient. Skip the $35 a night hotel parking. We were able to find parking nearby for about half the price. Other than that, have fun!

I would definitely come back here again and next time I'll bid lower on Priceline. It seems people have gotten rooms for around $70. I want that!

Friendly service and clean hotel.
We just spend a family vacation there and were looking for an upscale place, super clean (since we have a baby), and a good place to hang out. Overall, I was pleased with the room itself, BUT our reservation was changed, and although it wasn't a big deal, it was still unpleasant. The manager handled it well, in a very friendly manner, and since it was the 4th of July weekend i understand that they just do what they have to. The bar on the 4th floor serves lousy drinks... but it is conveniently located right next to the pool. About the pool-- I am a swimmer, and my choice of hotels is always influenced by it. The pool is clean and looks well on the pictures, BUT it is only 3 and 1/2 feet deep!! Good hotel for someone who is looking to party, since it's a walking distance from the night's epicenter.

Had an excellent stay at the Omni in July 2013. Polite staff. Clean room. A view of Petco Park from my room !? Awesome!!! And there's a bridge from the hotel to the stadium? Gnarly!

Tip: parking for the hotel during Padres games can be a headache. $20 to self park. No ins n outs.

OR  
Spend $38 valet parking with the hotel. Unlimited ins n outs

Will definitely stay again.

Nice looking hotel in a great part of downtown.  Warning - $38 for parking. Self parking fills up during ball games and events so valet is your only option. They got our room service order wrong and wouldn't give us a late checkout. We checked in at 3pm and had to get out by 12 noon. We requested to get out at 1pm since the kids wanted to try the pool. Paying all this money and not getting to use the hotel for at least 24 hours leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

I dislike lines and crowds so the exclusive use of the bridge connecting petco park to the hotel was a huge bonus. In and out without any problems. Trolley station is nearby if you need to get around. Gaslamp area is a block away. Plenty of eating/drinking options nearby. Never felt the need to have  a car while staying in this area.

The hotel room was nice. I was on the 17th floor, could see petco park out my window. Room was 'modern'. Decent sized flat screen television. I especially enjoyed the amount of shelf storage in the bathroom. Usually have my toiletries all scattered around the sink. I had the space to have everything neatly placed within hands reach. Bathrobe was decent quality.

At this price range, I expect the sound insulation between rooms to be a lot better. I could hear people walking down the hallway. I could hear people taking showers, that was incredibly annoying, some people took really long showers. The trolleys weren't as bad as I thought they would be, they just rang their bells, no horn sounds, and I couldn't really hear it with the windows closed. Yes, the 7 dollars for a bottle of water is ridiculous. If you read the fine print, there's a 20% restocking fee on top of that 7 dollars which is borderline criminal. You might as well just order room service.  The mccormick downstairs was pretty terrible. They really should look into having a better restaurant downstairs, it's a waste of a prime location.

I came to SD for a conference that was being held here so we got a group discount for the room! I paid $119 a night for a beautiful deluxe single.

Since this was my first time checking into a hotel by myself I was a little fearful that I forgot to bring something that I needed to check in, but once I was at the front desk the staff was very friendly and was very clear and concise on anything important that I needed to hear.

After entering the room, the room was definitely what you expected it to be; Well-made bed, nice decor, HDTV, Internet that comes with a Ethernet Cable (or wireless), and Toiletries (They even have a small sewing kit!).

The location is great! It's right by the harbor, so if you get the right room the view is beautiful! It's right next to the gaslamp district so there's plenty of good food and night-life partying to be had. And it's located right next to the SD Convention Center.

Minus Points though for the parking since it's also located right next to the Padre Stadium, you occasionally have to pay more than normal! Lastly there wasn't too much to do late at night, the bar and fitness areas are closed so the only thing you can really do is sit around or stay in your room.

Came here for a fun weekend with the beau for Labor Day weekend and because the Dodgers were in town. All of the staff was extremely friendly from the valet, front desk, housekeeping to the bellhop (Eric, the bellhop, was beyond helpful). I have no complaints. We stayed at the top floor with a great view of downtown SD and Petco Park. Actually, we could hear the fans from the stadium which was pretty cool, since the TV had a delay. However, you could mute the outside world by closing the window, and postpone the morning by closing the window dressings. The room was nice in size and very neat. The sheets were luxurious and the pillows divine (I judge a hotel greatly on their linens). We went up to the pool on Saturday and it was a bit small. Chairs were hard to come by, but if you wanted long enough you found a chair. There are no outside drinks or food allowed, but if you are stealth you can break that rule. There is food and drink you can order up there, but we didn't. What is great about this hotel is the private walk way to Petco Park. We were in SD to catch the game, so the bridge was quite convenient. You did need a ticket to the game to cross and a room key to cross back, don't forget either. A few of the guest and staff said they saw a lot of the Dodger players around the hotel, but I had no such luck. The stay would have been better if I caught Matt Kemp in the elevator and I was alone with him, brought the elevator to a halt and had my way with him. Overall, it was a great stay. Check out is at 12pm.

The Omni is a beautiful hotel, but it is the customer service that sets it apart. I booked through Priceline which usually gets you a second-class room. Not the case with Omni. They gave us a room with a beautiful view of the city on the 18th floor. I mentioned it was my husband's 30th birthday, and they sent aovely surprise up to the room for him. The front desk is incredible. They anticipate needs and questions and are willing to bend over backward to help or provide you with a special experience. I never want to leave.

Enjoyable experience. Hotel was rated 4 stars and the hotel earned a 4 star rating. Starting with the valet, fast, friendly and helpful. Checking in, fast and easy. The room had a view of Coronado Bridge. Check out again was fast and the valet was speedy in bringing the car up. They even put 2 bottles of water in the car for our trip home. I got an excellent rate. I will return and you should too:)

Located right across the street from the convention center, the Omni hotel is situated in the heart of the Comic Con scene.  If you want to be in the middle of all the chaos that is Comic Con than this is the hotel for you.  The rooms are nice but will cost you a pretty penny during the Con week.  They have a morning breakfast buffet that is really good, I especially like the fresh fruit selection that is offered.  Parking can be a little expensive at $35 per day and traffic in and out of the hotel can be difficult when they  shut down certain streets for Comic Con.  Tons of food and bars in the gaslamp district so its a great place to party.

I did want to say that the valet service is great there.  The guy who got my car placed two bottles of water in it when i picked up my car which really hit the spot after a long day at the con.

What a beautiful hotel and such a great location.  It is right next to the tram station and convenient to the gas lamp district.  Awesome rooms and staff.  They also were super friendly and gave us an evacuation rate because we were evacuated due to the  San Marcos fire in May.  The internet is free for their frequent traveler program members (free to join).

why four stars...read my con, other then that best "STAY-Cation" what is that? being a tourist in your own city, yup. Instead of doing the typical crazy out of this world pool parties on labor day. We decided to stay at the Omni & have a little festivity poolside with bottles of champagne & a few cheese platters ;)

+Location: Place has stunning panoramical views of San Diego's Best spots. I could stand on that balcony and stare at the Coronado bridge & harbor foooeva.

+Pros: in downtown San Diego, walkable to restaurants, clubs, coffee spots, BALLPARK and all that lies within gaslamp. Concierge, wonderful. I needed band aids, they were delivered in 5 minutes. Champagne w fruit or any yummy snack, quickly delivered. Staff...you get 5 stars for your friendliness & attentiveness.

+Cons: the manager at the pool was a little annoyed that we were there, I think he thought we were going to be a "rowdy" group. chill out braaaa, all we did was drink some bubbly & soak up the sun rays.

This hotel is bad ass. A view of the harbor, Coronado bridge and the pool all in one made this a night and day to remember. You just can't beat a room with a view like this.

Even though we live in San Diego, it's nice to take a short vacation downtown for the weekend and play in these places we take for granted. We really do have it all. We should, occasionally, spend some quality time in our beloved city.

Just a few years ago I was in London when a local Brit asked where in the USA I came from to which I proudly responded," San Diego!"
And he sounded back with, "then what the hell are you doing here?" but not in such a way as to insult me as he inquired, why would I leave the one place everyone else in the world wants to be? And to that I thought, Yes, San Diego is everything to me.

The Omni is a like a shining trophy as if it were presented to our great city for all it's excellence. The accommodations move past that typical hotel room layout and into a refreshing modern breath of fresh air, literally, as even on the upper floors you can open the sliding glass door and take in the clean air as you watch the boats sail by in the harbor below.

The beautiful thing about downtown San Diego is that everything is so nearby and Omni hotel is no exception. The ballpark is literally connected to this hotel and convention center just across the street.

Ok yes this property is gorgeous!!!!!!! However it's the loudest place ever. When our neighbors were running their water I couldn't hear our tv. The next door building was so loud, blasting music until 4am. The music was distracting and sounded as if it were coming from inside our room. Everything else was good- bathroom was modern, room was clean, beds were moderately comfortable, staff was nice. Oh and don't forget parking is valet only $38/day.

These guys just keep doing everything right.  The owner of this brand is a genius.  Centrally located, super friendly staff.  Jesse was over the top with his helpfulness and kindness.  Numerous restaurants, shopping and Petco Park a block or two away.  Views from the upper floors are fantastic.  Ask for 14 series rooms with corner views.

This is one of my favorite hotels when visiting San Diego. It's in a great location!
My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary at this hotel. I had called prior letting them know we would be celebrating out anniversary if they did anything special. They let me know they put it in the system but they didn't do anything special. So I said ok fin no worries. We went to check in they move our room up and to our surprise the morning of our anniversary the door bell rang and in came one of the staff with champagne, chocolate cover strawberries with a letter signed by all staff. I though that was pretty awesome and it made our stay so much more special and memorable. You must try and stay at this hotel.
Thank you Omni Staff for the amazing stay

Oh, Omni - I love thee!!  You're beautiful and you make me sooo comfortable!

We stayed here for a weekend (Novembe 2011) and absolutely loved it.  Our room was cool but our view (of the Coronado bridge) was sick.  It was a sad day when we had to leave LOL - but I'm coming back !!

I do want to say that my favorite thing about the Omni was the staff - these people were awesome (informative, friendly, and not weird LOL).  One of the nights, our party moved from the Hard Rock Hotel (across the street) up to the room, got a little loud, and... security came knocking.  I thought "SHIT, here we go" and realized how loud we actually were (sorry, Omni!!).  Two dudes and a lady came in, looked around, and ASKED us (about 10 super drunk individuals in our not-so-huge room haha) to be "less loud" (it was probably 3AM).  Of course, we're not assholes and obliged but, seriously... even Omni's security people are cool and respectful.

Can't wait to come back here!  Thank you, Omni, for an amazing experience :)

I stayed at the Omni for 5 nights in May for a conference.  I picked it based on its high TripAdvisor reviews - but I have to say I was disappointed.  

I did "online check in" which I thought was pretty cool.  I wouldn't be arriving until around 9pm (which I put in the form) but when I arrived there were no key cards to be found.  I waited in line and the desk agent said he had put them away for the night.  Not a huge deal - but I did the online check in so I didn't have to wait in line!

I stayed in 1603 - a king room.  I didn't find any problems with the 4 elevators and appreciated that my room was right near the elevator.  However, it faced the Hard Rock/Conference Center - and while the views were great - it was VERY loud (especially since there was a performance at the Hard Rock one evening).  I would highly recommend you ask for a quiet room.  I also found that the walls were paper thin and I could hear the conversations in other rooms.

I was excited about their Select Guest Programs - but I guess it didn't register for me because it wasn't until the second day I realized I didn't get water when I checked in, or a morning beverage (I was already getting free wifi thru the conference).  I called and they connected it - but again - a bit annoying.

The room was fine.  I agree the beds were very comfortable, however, I didn't like that there wasn't a comforter (only thin sheets!)  I pulled a blanket from the closest but it really wasn't heavy enough.  There also wasn't enough lighting (as I had to do work at night) and with all the lamps on it was still dull.

The bathroom was nice - although different as there is a pedestal sink with shelving the length of the wall on both sides.  Not good or bad, just different.

Housekeeping was one of my favorite parts of the stay!  Like I said I was there for a conference so I would leave in the morning and usually stop back around lunch and my room was ALWAYS clean - I really appreciated their promptness.

I also ordered room service a few times and was very happy with the speed and professionalism of the staff.

I made my way down to the 6th floor where the pool and fitness center are located and both were a disappointment.  The fitness center is small and didn't really have a lot of space to stretch.  There wasn't a view - and overall it was just blah.  The pool looked like it belonged in a backyard (very small) and I couldn't believe the lack of chairs!  They couldn't have had more than 20 chairs and in the afternoon half of them were fully in the shade.  This may be fine for a business/conference hotel - but definitely is not one I would bring family to or go for a relaxing weekend.

The lobby is very small - but I didn't spend a lot of time there anyway.  They had Morsel's - a convenience and coffee (Starbucks) shop which was nice and I did stop there a few times in the morning.

The location was really the best part - it's close to the conference center and also at the beginning of the Gaslamp Quarter so you can easily walk to many restaurants, shops and bars.

Again, since I was here for a conference I was able to see the hotels my colleagues were staying at and I just felt that for the price I paid - I could have had a more enjoyable "less conference" feel elsewhere.

They hired too many bell boy. They need to cut some people off .
Customer is feel obliged to have Bell service as soon as I arrived.
Especially " Dane Willey" Sorry but I had to come up this name cause he must be smoking lots of weed and smelled just like it. Why are they hiring pod head and expecting to be 5 star customer service?  I doubt their sense of decency. Hello are you guys educate these people to charge $$$$?
If they can not provide proper hospitality  and manner of service there are nothing different from motel 6.

I've stayed at this hotel many times and each time was great. The location is really convenient, being that it's right next to the convention center, gaslamp, and other hotels such as the Hardrock. The service provided always made me feel very welcomed. One of the stays my SO had the concierge make dinner reservations and get a cake for my b day. They even had rose petals over the beds and it made for a very romantic evening.

It's a wonderful hotel chain with a lot of restaurants/bars/clubs nearby. You can also get a wonderful view of Petco park since it's literally right next to it!

If you are sharing rooms, make sure you are comfortable with the other occupants. The sliding door of the bathroom doesn't give as much privacy as a normal door. And of course parking is really expensive, but it's like that for all the hotels in the area so it's not really avoidable.

I always have a great experience here even though it can be pretty pricey. However, it's definitely worth it!

Great experience.  The location is really convenient.  Just a few steps outside is the Gas Lamp.  Lots of good places to eat at.  If you're here for Comic-con then it's a short walk into the convention halls.  Room had a great view of the convention center and the shipping channel with Coronado on the other side.  Rooms seem to be wheelchair accessible.

No fridge but there is a minibar w/key.  There is a turndown service that drops off ice every night.  I don't think there is an ice maker.  They tempt you with $7 bottles of water next to the tv.  There is also a coffee/hot water maker in the room.

I wasn't too impressed, really...it took a lot of effort to try and get a decent room that didn't look out to an alley or the shipyard or something. I hated to be a pain in the butt but I wasn't going to pay $200 for a night and get a crappy room. I was pleased that they sent up some chocolate covered strawberries with a bottle of bubbly saying happy anniversary.
The bed was somewhat comfortable but overall, I'm disappointed we didn't try something different.

Sometimes I get burned-out and I have to get away from everyone. When I'm down south and rooms are available this is my place of choice. The Omni is nice, it's relaxing and if I could, I would live there.

Nestled in the Gaslamp Quarter, it's easy to get around when everything is within walking distance or even a trolley ride away. It's easy to step out, get in trouble, and then walk to some of the best restaurants in town.

The entrance is grand and is currently tastefully decorated for the Holidays. I recently checked in and was offered a glass of champagne. They also had hot cider and treats. Classy!

All guest rooms and suites are decorated in a luxurious, contemporary style and feature the most modern amenities. Rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and various views of downtown San Diego. All rooms have windows that open, plush terry bathrobes, pillow-top mattress, fully stocked refreshment center, and foam, feather or down pillows available in all rooms upon request. Each morning the staff brings to your room the USA newspaper and coffee or juice. The customer service here is stellar.  

The gym is great, new machines, flat screens, free headphones and ice cold water, towels, apples, magazines, everything you could ask for. It's always empty when I work out and I love that. After a nice sweat I enjoy lounging around the outdoor terrace with pool and fireplace.

My only gripe is the bathroom design for all guest rooms. There is no privacy. The slotted shutters on the bathroom doors open up to the rest of the suite.  Any odor or sound emitting from your ass will be reluctantly shared by all! This is why I always stay alone at this hotel. The lack of bathroom privacy makes this the ideal "I want to be alone" get-away hotel for me. I'm still perplexed to why they haven't changed this one flaw.

Everyone from the valet, to concierge, to cleaning staff is friendly, welcoming, polite, and make you feel appreciated for choosing their hotel.

i really loved staying here. i booked this through priceline so i was scared to find out what i would have received but everything turned out and i was happy to hear i was staying at the Omni. They certainly live up to their brand.

Pros:
Super friendly doormen and valet
Hotel was spotless and lobby was beautiful.
Guest rooms were clean, updated, and very nice. My room had a view looking over Petco park! I could watch the game from my room. How cool is that!
In the heart of the Gaslamp District. You literally walk out your hotel and there you are.
Close to their metro/bus/shuttle line
Very friendly staff and bellmen
pool looked amazing but it was too cold when i was there

cons:
bathroom door or lack thereof. the bathroom does does not lock, it "slides" shut like a sliding glass door. it's on a track and you slide it open or shut and the bathroom door has frosted glass in the middle. Since it slides shut, there are gaps (about 1-2 inches where if someone is walking past the door you can see then and that means they can see you on the toilet if they were looking. it also means that any fumes from the bathroom can easily come through the gaps. this is not a big deal if you're by yourself, but if you're taking a romantic get away trip with someone or a trip with a group of friends in one one, it really is very akward.

everything else was wonderful! totally would stay here again...

oh, they do make you pay for parking since it's valet only but that's pretty standard for most hotels in major cities. just factor it into your costs.

Conveniently located in the Gaslamp, the Omni San Diego is a very modern and clean establishment. The front desk clerks were professional and courteous, the room - just what I would expect at this price point.  Couldn't have asked for more.  I tried room service for breakfast and it arrived timely with everything piping hot.  Definitely will be returning here again later this year.

Came down to San Diego to visit my best friend with my husband and found an awesome deal on Gilt City. The hotel is beautiful and very comfortable. I absolutely loved the fluffy robes that they have and enjoyed my stay while we were there. The only down side? We weren't able to get through to the concierge/front desk at all. We had tried calling a number of times to get our car from valet and then to check-out but we were never able to get through to them so we had to go downstairs each time.

LOVE the Omni San Diego! Everything about our stay here was fantastic!

Location- if you made a nice little triangle the Omni would be right in the heart of the 3 points: Petco Park, Gaslamp, Convention Center. Everything is in walking distance including Little Italy (fantastic Saturday Farmers Market FYI), Seaport Village and even the train. We got the $38 a night valet (a little steep but comparative to other local hotels) for the ease of in & out accessibility to our car which we never even ended up needing as everything was such a nice easy walk. We got lazy after dinner one night (and probably a few too many drinks) but the cab was only $4.30. Nada!

Rooms- clean, neat, modern. Beautiful fews of the Coronado Bridge, the bay or inside Petco Park depending on the floor or the direction your room is facing. Turndown service nightly was a nice touch. Some of the movies they had were still in theaters. Pricey at $16 but still a nice offering.

Amenities- state of the art fitness center was well maintained, UPS on site, business center, pool on the 6th floor with spa and massages, Morsels Cafe with Starbucks coffee, snacks and gifts, ice cold cucumber water in the lobby and a nice sitting area.

Dining- McCormick & Schmid's on-sight for a full menu and bar offerings (weekday happy hour is great FYI). Room service available 24/7 and although we didn't order anything other than coffee the menu was fairly large and reasonably priced for a hotel. There are so many fantastic restaurants within a 5 minute walk...Lou & Mickeys, Nobu, 270 etc that you'll have no problem finding a good meal! The Tin Fish is literally right outside which has great fish and chips plus more.

Staff- what impressed us the most about Omni was the staff...from the valet, to the front desk to the room attendants...everyone was beyond friendly and helpful! The consistency no matter what time of day or from the beginning to end of a shift was phenomenal. Nothing seemed forced..just a group of people who genuinely loved their jobs, cared about their visitors and wanted to make sure every guests needs were met! Kudos!

Extra Tip- the owners are apparently huge baseball fans! Take the time to walk around the hotel and check out all the signed memorabilia! It's pretty impressive!

Thanks for the stay Omni! We'll be back and highly recommend to anyone wanting a 5 star hotel experience for a fair price!

We moved over here after a poor experience at the downtown Westin (see other review). The beds are very comfy and room very nice. We loved being in the Gaslight district and the front desk was very professional and courteous.

The valet parking is $35 but if you are out all day and just parking at night, the parking garage across the street costs around $17 - no in and outs, though.

The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is the weird louvers between the bathroom and the bedroom. There are open windows covered with wooden louvers that open and close like shutters. I'm not sure if all rooms have this "feature" or not, but I really prefer bathroom privacy. I love my husband dearly but there are just some things that shouldn't be shared - even between married couples.  Sometimes a little mystery is a good thing. :-)

Free wi-fi only if you join their points club.

Stayed here over New Years given the great ratings I've heard for service & hotel being family friendly. In these areas they really didn't disappoint. Valet, Doormen, & Bell hops were all attentive & courteous. Maid service & room service were all quite good as well. Where they need work is the rooms as they don't truly stand out for a luxury type hotel. They were nice but made more for a business stay (Desk, TV, Bed) - not many frills per say....in any event I had a pretty decent stay overall & can definitely commend the staff on making it good!

What I loved most about this hotel was it's location and the customer service. Everyone was friendly, especially our bell boy! He helped with the bags gave us a ton of information and was just cool to talk to. Dane was his name. There were a few negatives though... The iron wasn't warm enough, we had to call the front desk for a new one. There was no fridge, so we had to make one in the bathroom sink with the ice from the ice machine. The beds seemed small, full size instead of queen. Other than that, it was a really nice hotel. I just expected a hotel like that to have more of what was lacking.

The hotel is in wonderful, clean condition. However, I wouldn't call this hotel high end except for the prices. The grounds (rooms, lobby, pool, fitness center, etc.) and decor are well-maintained but nothing special...similar quality as Hilton Hotels. We received a great price for the location through Priceline but had we paid full price, it would not have been worth it at all. Parking is valet only and is VERY expensive so we self parked in a lot across the street for half the price. It was very awkward to unload, load our car due to a busy and tiny drop-off lane. Valet workers hopped in our car three times and moved it with me and our baby inside (twice without even asking first).

We had room service our first evening, which was mediocre and overpriced, as was the pool deck restaurant. The club sandwich and wedge salad were pretty good. Avoid the steak nachos(no taste at all...saltless chips, grainy cheese and no salsa), slider trio(no taste except BBQ pork), frozen white sangria(lacking booze and no fruit), and clam chowder(rubbery clams). The wait staff at the pool bar/grill were very friendly but quite inattentive. Had they paid more attention, we likely would have ordered 3-4 more drinks.

Staff was overall quite friendly and helpful and everything was very clean. We also enjoyed the location, which would be great if we were going to the convention center or to a Padres game. There is nothing about this hotel that would stand out and make full price worth it. We would only stay here again if we were going to a baseball game and got a great deal on a room.

By the way, in room wi-fi is free if you sign up for their loyalty program.

The hotel is modern but it lacks free WIFI, reasonable portions for food and reasonable prices. The hotel is clearly catering to the top 2% of Americans with such prices. It isn't kid friendly when chicken fingers and a drink cost $22 and there's about 3 oz of chicken.

I was stunned to stay at this low quality hotel... The room was dusty, the carpet was frayed, the bathtub stopper was broken, the ceiling was peeling, and the sliding door provided anything but privacy and was a different color than everything else. It's like it was thrown in as an afterthought.

Room service wasn't bad - thanks to McCormick and Schmidts. The beer battered chicken fingers were phenomenal. And any true test of any establishment: the French fries were great.

I would probably stay at a different hotel next time however.

Fantastic location! 90% of the staff was great. Warm, friendly, and courteous. But within every property there are a few bad apples. One of the gentleman manning the front desk became confrontational after I requested my minibar key. Night manager was called and witnesses behavior. Now 2 weeks after my stay the hotel is trying to double bill for my rooms mini bar tab. Which I had paid upon checking out, and have the receipt. Odd...

Since San Diego doesn't have 5 star hotels this is the next best thing. Well worth it.

Pros: good food service, clean, beat customer service ever, room service is fast, very diverse, friendly. Lovely. Close to Gaslamp district... Walking distance to mall.... Food spots and BARS!!!! :)))
Cons: $38 valet parking...
-Thank god I booked this hotel on Priceline and got a $300 a night room for $87!!!!

Omni is definitely one of my favorite hotels in the Gaslamp district, its not only conveniently located they also offer both valet and self-parking.  

Location: Omni is within walking distance of the San Diego Convention Center and 5th street  and is directly across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel and Club 207

Service and Amenities:  Receptionist are super friendly, the hotel is pet-friendly, they have an fairly large outdoor pool with plenty of lounge chairs, a hot tub, a gym and a restaurant.  

Room: The rooms are super spacious and modernized. The bathrooms are updated and super clean they have a standard tub and shower setup. They carry all your typical toiletries: soap, shampoo, conditioners, lotions, q-tips, sewing kit and mouth wash. And don't worry about charging your phone in some random location next to the tv or bathroom, the room has a gazillion outlets, including the nightstand (so you can sleep next to your phone at night).  

My only complaint: the sliding door over the bathroom, sure it adds some character but leaves very little room for privacy, be prepare to share your unwanted business with everyone.

Noise Level: It was very quiet and peaceful, and the beds are super comfy so you can definitely count on having a restful night  

Parking: There is a parking structure located directly across the street (they have hourly rates and a maximum charge of $8.00 per day)

A real gem you wouldn't expect. Slightly cheaper than the nearby Convntion Center hotels of Hilton, Hyatt, and Marriot - while feeling even closer (unless a train comes by). Especially if you join their frequent Omni program, which gets you FREE WIFI (why do expensive hotels insist on nickel and diming you for wifi?), and a free drink (Coffee or Juice) delivered to your room in the morning.   All the contacts with staff were wonderful.  GET A VIEW OF THE ADJACENT SAFECO BASEBALL STADIUM! Amazing views, got to see the fireworks show after a game from our bedroom window!

One bad thing - add a fan to the bathrooms!

Perfect location, beautiful view, excellent customer service. David from valet gave us exceptional friendly and welcoming service,  so did a really nice lady working in the morsels cafe / Starbucks / giftshop. The rooms are fresh and clean. My only complaint is the bathroom has a weird window with blinds facing the bedroom which eliminates privacy. Not sure why they can't just install air vents in the bathrooms but the amenities were above what I've seen at comparable hotels. The rooms were also immaculately clean which I'm anal about. Room service prices and food quality are good.  Definitely not all hype. Loved it!

The room was clean, but the sound isolation in this hotel is subpar. I stayed in a room on the 5th floor (I think the lowest level they offer) facing the convention center. The neighbors phone conversation were crisp and clear (although I couldn't hear the other side). I could hear every word my neighbor spoke.There were even better sound effects off the phone (some good human fun).
Worse, the trolley passes by right in front, intensely ringing its bell ... starting around 4:30 AM.
I am there to sleep - fat chance.

Did I mention $7 for a bottle of water in the room?
Finally, the convention deal provided me with free internet. Otherwise they charge for WiFI too. Please ... let's boycot hotels that charge for internet and water at outrageous prices. It is such a nuisance.

We stayed there one night prior to a cruise. We had a suite on the 17th floor with a great view of the bay. Service was excellent as was our stay. I'm a frequent guest of Omni hotels and they always treat us well, no matter the location. The somewhat trendy Gas Lamp district is within walking distance. There are numerous dinning options and plenty of bars to choose from. There is also a walkway which directly connects to Petco Park where the Padres play. There is a parking garage just across the street from the hotel if you're like me and rarely use the valet. I can't remember for sure, but I think parking was $10-15 a day.

Nice hotel in Gaslamp. Booked through Hotwire & got a great rate vs. retail ($108 vs. $210). Parking was very easy at the garage right across the street & cost $15 vs. ~$40 for valet at the hotel. Check-in was smooth--only complaint was that the front desk woman said they didn't have any rooms with a single (larger) bed available so we were stuck in a room with two doubles. Ugh, a double bed. No me gusta.
I went online & saw that you could still book a king room on their website, so I assume they were just unwilling to accommodate a request for a Hotwire booking, which I've definitely encountered before & is a small price to pay in my opinion for the better rate.
We had a bottled water delivered with a bag of ice shortly after check-in as a welcome gesture, which was nice, and the room was clean, modern & comfortable. We were on the 20th floor with a cool view of Petco park, and the location is close to a ton of restaurants & other neighborhoods. I'd be happy to stay here again.

Beautiful hotel, extremely clean. Robert at the concierge desk is extremely helpful and friendly. If you are on a budget, steer clear of McCormicks and Schmicks and the store Morsels. The Broken Yolk is a great restaurant 2 blocks away. There is also smaller markets with essentials for a lot less. One water is $3.75 and at the market had water for $1.75.

This was a great experience.  My BFF and I decided to have a girls night out and came here for the night.  It was close to everything and we had an awesome view!  I have zero complaints except for the bathroom door....you have to not slide it all the way....

I was impressed with the sewing kit they had for us in the bathroom....the minibar was stocked with goodies.  We ordered room service and it was great!!!!  After having a great night out in Gaslamp and room service at 3am....we woke up at 9am to swimming on the pool....which was sweet!  Plenty of towel and nobody is checking your ID or room key to get it.  There was a creepy white dude that acted like Pedophile when two 13 years came into the pool....

Valet service is also great! They charge it to your room and leave a couple of water bottles in your car for you.  Everything was clean and great.  Everyone keeps complaining about thin walls but I didn't hear anything....maybe I had no neighbors?

Anyways, I will visit again!

Just got back from staying at the Omni in San Diego. I am a tough judge when it comes to hotels and this hotel exceeded all expectations. Everything was great, the staff was super friendly and accommodating. Location is also great. My husband wasn't feeling well and they extended our check out time until 3pm, they also sent Gatorade up to the room as a courtesy.
The rooms are super clean, bathrooms are nice. It can't get better than this.
Highly Recommend.

I had a really great experience staying at the Omni! It's in a great location within the Gaslamp and you get a great view of the stadium! The room was clean and spacious and we were able to request a mini fridge. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The pool area was nice but a little small, it got very crowded and my group didn't have anywhere to sit so we just threw our towels on the ground. I know that it's common in SD but the valet only parking for $40 really sucks. Fortunately there's a cheap lot literally across the street.

I travel / stay in San Diego's Gaslamp around twice a year and recently had stayed last Labor day weekend at the Omni.  Of all the hotels I've stayed at Solomar (nice unique boutique hotel), Westin (skip this one), and others the Omni will definitely receive my future business.  

Pros:

Best Location on Gaslamp
Corner room was nice and LARGE
Friendly front desk  
Friendly house keeping especially GREAT service from house keeper Pilar
Mccormick and Schmitt down stairs
Connected to Petco Park

Cons:

Nice pool area, but lacks the excitement
2 bug bites the first night. Was upset but Pilar took care of the issue, and I do understand things like this happen.  Although if does happen again will not receive my continuing business.

Great hotel I would highly recommend in the heart of Gaslamp!

The wife and I attended a wedding in the Downtown San Diego area and we decided to stay a couple of nights at this hotel.  The staff were friendly and helpful.  The check-in process was quick and accurate.  We decided to utilize the valet and they were quite friendly and fast when retrieving our vehicle.  In/out privileges come with the valet fee.  The room was clean and modern.  I am a Gold Select Member so we were given free internet and breakfast beverages throughout are stay.  It is nice that membership still has it's privileges.  You cannot beat the location of this hotel as it is close to a lot of attractions in the Downtown/Gaslamp Areas.

Room was clean, but faced the back of the Petco stadium on the 8th floor.  Clean, spacious bathrooms with basic essentials.  The only complaint we had was the movie offered on TV.  My coworkers and I decided to stay in and watch a movie and throughout the movie, there were glitches or it froze.  We made it through half the movie and finally decided to give them a call.  They said they would refund us and after 10 minutes, they shut the movie off.

Nonetheless, good customer service and walking distance to everything you need at the Gaslamp Quarters, 10-15 minutes to the airport, convention center across the street, $10 for wifi, and safe area to stay at.  I am definitely coming back to this hotel again!

Went to San Diego for Labor day/anniversary and found a good deal online for this usually EXPENSIVE hotel.

I always make sure I put special occasions in the comment box and my boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary.

We got there and everyone was super nice! Do not park your car in THEIR lot or VALET...the Parking structure across the street is HALF the price!

The hotel itself isnt the most updated or modern but definitely classy fancy and a perfect location if you want to be near Gaslamp and all things fun!

We arrive and they upgrade us immediately and assume its our Marriage anniversary haha

We get into our room and a knock comes to our door and we get CHAMPAGNE AND CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES CELEBRATING OUR "marriage" haha

All in all, a great place! Walkable to Gaslamp and a pleasant experience.

WIll be sure to come back on our next wedding anniversary ;)

I came back in town for a Padres game.  This location is perfect for a game day get-a-way or other events at Petco Park, and the downtown area in general. The hotel is connected to the stadium and getting into the stadium is effortless.  It is a simple stroll across a sky bridge and through a gate manned by a ticket scanner and a security guard.  No shakedowns and no delays.  Simple.  Persons with a mobility impairment will find no issue getting through the gate, as they can move the whole thing.

Front desk staff is nice and professional, the desk is well staffed and results in no wait to check in or check out.  The room is extraordinary- clean, fresh, well stocked with bath supplies, mini-fridge is over stocked (usual hotel prices), the halls are clean and free of weird smells.  The hotel is also very, very quiet.

The only gripe I can find is the parking is high, even accounting for the convenience of the valet, it is still high.  In this area of town the going rate is about $15/day if there is nothing going on at the stadium or the convention center (the convention center is walkable from here).  When there are special events these garages will add a cash only payment of about $12 in addition to the $15.  The valet downstairs is $38.  

My suggestion would obviously be to allow me to prepay parking at the time I book my room.  At least give me the option to prepay at a rate lower than $38.  I would have gladly prepaid for a nights parking at $30, I think that is a fair rate.

Although I have really enjoyed my stay, and I really like the hotel, I would look more closely at the other excellent hotels in this area and likely pick the hotel with the most reasonable parking.

Side Note:  Individuals who enjoy baseball will also enjoy the baseball memorabilia that is scattered in the hotel.  It is museum quality and interesting,  People who hate baseball will likely not notice the artifacts in the hotel as they are tastefully understated.

Nice accommodations that give you great access to Petco Park, the Gaslamp, and the convention center. Rooms are clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. Views of the bay from the upper floors are breathtaking, although sometimes noisy because of the trolley station below. Worth it for the view though.

It was a beautiful and the staff were so amazing and helpful. It was a great location, we could walk everywhere and it was right next to the trolly. The hotel gives you the trolly passes, which I thought was great and the concierge was very knowledgeable. I will be a repeat customer. :-)

We stayed here with my son for a weekend getaway. The hotel is very conveniently located near the gaslamp district and near the trolley and is right next to Petco park. We took the Amtrak train to San Diego and just a couple trolley stops later we were right at the hotel. We didn't have need of a rental car....the trolley took us just about everywhere we wanted to go except Balboa park.

The hotel is modernistic, and has a McCormick & Schmick right inside. The rooms were clean, and we got a bay view upgrade. The staff is very friendly and the concierge was well informed and helpful. There were some nice touches like the milk and cookies for my son at the end of the day. We had room service breakfast Sunday morning, which was a treat (typical hotel fair....nothing to complain or write home about), though a bit on the expensive side ($20 per person plus service and gratuity).

My only complaint about this property is (as others have noted before) that the walls are thin and you can hear noises from the other rooms. Also, if you are facing the bay, the trolley has a pedestrian alarm that rings from late at night and starts in the early hours of the morning (we could hear it despite being up on the 14th floor). Both would have been annoying but that we are sound sleepers.

We stayed here for four days and three nights. Even though our reservation was booked through an on line discount site we were upgraded to a very nice corner room that was 200 sq. ft larger than a standard room. The hotel is close to everything in the Gaslamp section of town, great restaurants, night life, the convention center, and is of course right next door to the baseball park.
The service at the hotel was exactly what you would expect for this level of luxury property, friendly and effective. Doors are held open, smiles and greetings in the hall, quick and effective responses to any requests. There is a small shop in the lobby that pours Starbucks coffee.Our room came with two complimentary coffees per day. Read the breakfast door hang tag carefully. That's where the two coffee offer, redeemable in the lobby store, was for our room.
The workout room is very adequate, having 4-5 high end treadmills, a couple of recumbent bikes and one stationary bicycle. The stationary bicycle is my preference and even though it was a little long in the tooth and well used it provided a nice workout. There are complimentary towels and water in the workout room. In addition to the cardio equipment there are the requisite dumbbells and bosu balls. There was no additional fee to use any of the hotel amenities. It's very nice to not even leave the property to work out.
The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The bed was just right and the high definition TV had about 50 channels of digital content to choose from.
Some reviews have noted the noise level. Well, this is the Gaslamp. Think mini-New Orleans on weekend nights. The noise is not a big deal on 'school nights'. We were on the 8th floor and it was noticeable in the evening. There isn't much the hotel can do about it, similar to any other busy urban area such as Boston, New York or San Francisco. If this is a consideration requesting a room on the highest floor available may help.
Here's how to handle the expensive parking. There are metered street spaces along 9th and 10th streets and also many of the cross streets. Pay close attention as some are limited to 30 minutes and others to two hours. The meters are only in effect until 6 pm. Park after 4 pm, put the maximum on the meter and leave by 8am or return and put the max on the meter to be paid until 10 am. If you're spending most of the day away from the Gaslamp, i.e. at the zoo, etc. it may not be necessary to purchase any valet or a single overnight in the garage. The walk isn't bad to the meters, maybe 5-10 minutes and level with no hills. We saved over $60 vs. overnight parking and even more vs. valet with this approach.

After a 3 hour drive from the los angeles airport, I finally arrive for the first time into San Diego and pull into the valet half round about of the Omni San Diego hotel in the Gas Lamp district. I had booked this hotel from groupon, after reading use reviews and looking at user uploaded pictures. We got in quite late, at around 11:30 PM, and the valet was a nice young man. He explained to me that valet parking was ** dollars a day and parking in the building across the street was 15 dollars a day. We decided to self park and he let us unload our bags, check in and look at our room before parking the car. Checking in was a breeze, it was well staffed and they were courteous and professional. I had reserved a premier king room for $119 from groupon but they upgraded us to a king suite which was AMAZING. This hotel was quite new and the furnishings were fantastic. We took the elevator up to our room in anticipation, past rows of modern art and to the room with the extra word "Suite" under ours. The room was split into three parts, the sitting area with a large TV, desk, couches and other amenities and the large bedroom with windows overlooking the San Diego bridge and hotel pool and the spacious bathroom with a separate shower and tub combination. This was a VERY comfortable two nights two nights that we spent in there. I was very pleased with this hotel, the only complaint I have is more to do with the crowd of people late at night outside the hotel. There were police cars galore the night we pulled in and many strange menacing street people walking around. Even during the day we saw police and security traveling in fours patrolling the area. That was the only unsettling part. We did not explore gas lamp as my friend was very scared to go out, I guess you can't have it all. The location was great a tram station was right behind the hotel, which we used to get to seaworld. It looked like we were across from a club from the loud music and lineups we witnessed coming back to our hotel the first night, so if nightlife is what your looking for, this hotel has it right outside. I would love to come back and stay at this hotel.

Great hotel!! Great location, great service, great rooms, quite everything you can ask for. This is by far my favorite hotel in San Diego. Location is perfect right between Petco park, Gaslamp and the Bay. The hotel is actually attached to Petco park so you can enter the park on the 2nd level from the hotel if you are going to enjoy a game. I went to Dodgers vs padres and it was awesome. Customer service at this hotel is amazing. Very friendly and attentive. Pool are is good for a downtown hotel with plenty of chairs. Rooms are very clean with super comfy bedding. If you are coming to San Diego and you want to get away from the douchy downtown hipster boutique hotels I recommended this hotel more then any other.

Room - booked a room with two double beds. Room was spacious and clean. We requested prior to arrival extra towels in the room and they listened and each day brought the correct number without us having to ask. Good water pressure - excellent shower.
Cons - we were advised on our second day of our vacation, that the hotel guests would be without water and power starting at 11:00 p.m. To 4:00 a.m. Which pretty much dictates when you have to go to bed on vacation. We were not impressed. The only compensation offered was one bottle of water when there was two of us staying in the room. The first night, it was a bit noisy (Saturday night) as the walls appear to be thin and we were on the ninth floor and faced the train tracks. Very small lounge area, nice drink selection, however HORRIBLE service. You must go into the bar area to announce you have arrived and would like service. If you don't announce your arrival and request service, you don't get any. Good location but definitely room for improvement.

My only complaint about our entire stay... the bed was HORRIBLE!!! Absolutely horrible. The sheets and comforter were so bad and the bed was super squeaky. Such a bummer because one of the main reasons we made the trip was to get some rest. (We have a lil one at home) other than the crappy bed this is a nice place to stay.

The best hotel experience I've ever had.

The Omni Hotel in San Diego was the most pleasant, cleanest, friendliest, hassle-free, and customer-centric hotel I've ever had the privilege of staying at.

The location is perfect, located in the heart of the downtown San Diego gaslamp district. It is literally attached to Petco Park (Padres stadium) so you can take the skybridge to see a baseball game, walk to numerous restaurants and shops in gas lamp, take short cab rides or public transportation to any one of the plentiful excursions in San Diego, or walk over to the convention center if you have a conference.

I really can't say enough about the staff. The front desk and concierge staff are the friendliest people I have encountered and were extremely knowledgable about the area. I was on a first name basis with almost all the concierge staff and front desk during my trip because everyone had great recommendations and interesting information to share. I have to give a shout out to Justin at concierge because he was instrumental in putting together the perfect itinerary for me during my stay!

I also have to say that the room was very clean and the maid staff were very accommodating.  I stayed in a standard sized room with 1 king bed and had a great view of the bay and convention center.

If you are staying in San Diego, I would HIGHLY recommend staying at the Omni. I loved my stay there and will definitely be booking again next time I visit.

Our room was beautiful! Our window view was of the Bay and Coronado. Our balcony view was of downtown, Gaslamp and Petco Park. We were able to walk to the bars and restaurants in Gaslamp and to Petco Park. The staff were super sociable and friendly. There were plenty of machines to use in the fitness center. The pool was small and busy, so we didn't get to try that out. We didn't mind, though, because we preferred going to the beach. My husband and I had a great anniversary weekend. We will definitely be back!

A quick San Diego trip brought us here to the Omni Hotel in the heart of downtown.  Honestly it's not my first pick of places to go with a family UNLESS you are here for a baseball game-then I could see the convenience factor, since it is literally right next door to the stadium.  Convention and Gaslamp visitors would also benefit.

Valet parking is $38 per night or you could self-park in the garage across the street for $14-which we were quoted by the valet but charged $16 coming out of the garage.
This parking dilemma is one reason I would not stay here.  High priced parking and too many crazy drunks around the Gaslamp district who left a mess in the parking garage elevators (vomit, empty prescription bottles) disgusting.

Hotel was clean, modern and very nice.  Upscale fixtures and decor in the rooms.  A well-stocked mini bar and room service to die for!  We had in-room dining and if you stay here order the shrimp and three-cheese pasta-OMG you will die and go to macaroni and cheese heaven!!!

Service friendly, a sundries in the lobby has a Starbucks so you get your morning coffee fix and a muffin or fresh fruit and yogurt.

I'm not a fan of staying downtown with kids but it was convenient to the sites we wanted to see.

This hotel is one of my husband and I's favorites! The price for what you get is unbeatable. The room is gorgeous, we got a corner room up high with a view of the water. It was spacious with huge windows and amazing lighting. The room was clean and bright. The bed was sooo comfy! The staff has always been friendly and super accommodating. The room service was delicious although VERY expensive. The pool and jacuzzi are huge and half way up the hotel so the effect is really cool. One time we stayed there at the same time as the Ravens and shared an elevator ride with a group of defense players. That was an unexpected bonus. My husband was decked out in Charger gear and they rousted him. He told them that we had them on our fantasy footbal team and one of them said, "Don't try to butter me up" HAHA

Every experience at this Omni has been perfection! We have dabbled in a few other hotels and although we didn't have bad experiences, they just weren't as wonderful. This will always be our go-to hotel when visiting my husbands family in San Diego!

I was really pissed off when we first arrived because it was 3pm and the website says 3pm check in.  That was a lie as we had to wait almost an hour in the lobby for my room. I was really irritated as I'm pregnant and wanted a nap before the baseball game and didn't have too much time to do that before the game started.

Room was clean but nothing special. Lobby was very small. I came here on a groupon and it was convenient to walk from the hotel to the game but I definitely wouldn't spend full price to stay here.

Btw, valet is 38 dollars. Another hotel we stayed at in the area last year (I think it was the Hilton) had 28 dollar parking. Plus we couldn't call ahead for the car because they were "slammed" that's what we were told over the phone. So downstairs we went and waited 20 minutes for the car. Waiting waiting waiting and more waiting! Not worth it!

"Lets go to the Omni!!!" a quote from my nephew Ashton after he was eavesdropping our conversation on our stay at San Diego's Omni.

Customer Service stands out here at this hotel. They were accommodating, especially we were newly weds just after our civil wedding a few years ago, for our celebration. At that time they gave upgraded us for either the Petco Park View or the Coronado View, so we opted for the Coronado side because it was romantic.

Their rooms were good, a bit spacious, clean and the balcony view serves its purpose with a partial view of Petco Park, the bay, Coronado Bridge and looking down the view of the hotel's swimming pool.

The other benefit staying at the Omni is that its just walks away to Gaslamp and Yes! the wifey and I partied it up at our all time favorite Whiskey Girl dance club located in the heart of Gaslamp.

The location is great! I highly recommend this hotel if your in for parties/clubs/tours/baseball. It falls into the 4 star hotel status, its not too hip, you do get awesome vibes here and comfort level, but overall I'm glad we stayed here. LET'S GO TO THE OMNI !!!

Came here on a Groupon deal :)

Their interior was classy and their service was outstanding. It was one of the easiest stays in my traveling years and I really appreciate them making my weekend relaxing and chill. It was also right next to everything so it was super convenient to walk around and to get to places.

One of the downsides was also the location. On the day we stayed at Omni, there was an event at the Petco park next door. Multiple streets were closed due to the events and it took us probably more than half hour (when we were about less than 1 mile away, no joke) just to circle around to get back to the hotel. Plus that there were literally no parkings available other than their $38/night valet parking at the hotel (which was a little ridic given that guests already paid lots for their rooms and services).

Anyways, not totally satisfied but I did have a good time and a good weekend! Might come back when there's a deal again!

This hotel was great!  The location was perfect because we were so central to everything and the staff were very friendly.  We stayed on the top floor so we had an awesome view of the city.  We will definitely consider the Omni on our next trip.

For business and pleasure I highly recommend this hotel.  Location is excellent - near to Gaslamp Quarter, walking distance to the mall and grocery stores, near various restaurants, and the hotel is attached to petco park.  You might as well catch a game - live games are truly exciting, even in baseball.  The hotel room was always well kept, especially the bathrooms.  Amenities are awesome - bottled water, hair dryer, if you want a treadmill added to your room you got it, and anything else your heart needs to have an enjoyable relaxing stay.  The concierge and staff are professional and helpful.  I give it up to the valet - they are there any time of the day and night. The train is also nearby to take you to Little Italy or Fashion Valley Mall. On a trip convenience is everything to me and this hotel was the best I stayed in thus far in SD.

Stayed here earlier in the year while visiting the Gas Lamp District and I can't tell you how excited I was to know I had found a room this close in a hotel which such great ratings for around $120 so you best believe I jump on that reservation. I probably should have spent more time reading the review.

First, you HAVE to pay for parking either across the street in general parking for about $35 a day or at the hotel for valet parking for $20 but hey, we are here to have a good time so let us stay positive.

As I walk in the lobby things are starting to look up but those thoughts disappeared the second I walked in our room. I was extremely disappointed considering this is an Omni except the room looked like a nice motel 6 room, it looked and smelled old and it was clean but clearly aged and it did not have a fridge. The bed was uncomfortable and the only nice thing I noticed was the restroom. Sure, I pay $120 for a hotel room with at a great location and who knows one may get a better room if you pay full price but had it not be for the price and the great location I would have given this place two stars.

If you decide to stay here, I would not pay full price nor would I set my expectations high. The ONLY good reason to stay here is location....location.....AND LOCATION.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a little getaway. It is a beautiful hotel, and we got such a great deal on the rates.

Our room was great, the location is awesome, and we had a great view. I also loved the fitness center. While a bit small, it had everything I need and also provided bottled water, clean towels and a bowl of fruit.

Minus one star because of the bathrooms! There is very little privacy. I'm not sure how to describe the doors, but basically they are slatted and screen-like. Our room also had panels between the bedroom and the bathroom that were basically see-through.  You can hear EVERYTHING, and air flows in and out freely. I quickly learned to use the restroom on the floor near the fitness center, since I still care that my boyfriend thinks I'm a lady.

This hotel seems nice, but I think we just got a terrible room.  So if you go make sure you get a room on the higher floors.

During the evening we kept hearing a loud bang on our ceiling. It sounded like someone moving tables or construction.  The next morning, the same banging started at about 6 AM, which we thought was weird.  Then again during the evening, the banging kept on going!  Thinking this was plenty odd, we called down only to find out our room was under the fitness room and people who were doing the weights were just dropping them on the floor after each rep.  Apparently, there is a sign to tell them not to do that.  I have to question the person who thought it would be a good idea to put rooms under a fitness room with weights and control noise with a sign... like really?

Apart from that, the hotel was clean and staff were nice enough, but I think we would only go back if we weren't on sub fitness room floor.

Had the opportunity to stay here on a Priceline deal. We were doing a planned last minute get away for our anniversary. When the other half called in to make a reservation he mentioned that we were celebrating an anniversary and they bumped us into a nicer room and delivered Chocolate Covered Strawberries and champagne.

The staff is friendly and accommodating and our room over looked the pool

It's perfect in walking distance in most of the Gaslamp which is soo convenient. We were able to walk around and have no problems. We also were able to catch a cab after we walked to far to want to walk back.  

We parked across the street  in the structure for cheaper parking rates

We have a great stay. I wish the bed was a little softer but other than that...fantastic.

The staff were great with excellent attention to detail. Since we came in Easter Sunday, we were concerned about finding a nice place for our anniversary dinner. The concierge recommended a fantastic seafood restaurant and had a treat waiting for us in our room. A road trip from LA the champagne and strawberries hit the spot.

The bellmen had bottled waters in the car when we came in and out. I really appreciated that. This is definitely be our hotel of choice when visiting San Diego.

We pulled up to the hotel and my boyfriend goes to get his wallet out and realizes he forgot his wallet at home. We go to the front desk to see if we would be able to check in without his credit card or ID. Since he had booked it through a third party website, they said they may not be able to pull up his credit card info. We sat down in the lobby to see if anyone could drive his wallet to us when Joseph walked up to us and said he was able to pull up his info so that we could get checked in!

Overall, the hotel was very accommodating. The valet gave our 2 year old girl a little Omni backpack when we first got there. The backpack contained an awesome activity book, crayons, a match card game and one of those swirly straws. She insisted on wearing her backpack all over town. The activity set and crayons sure prevented some temper tantrums while we were eating out.

Rooms were clean. Since we had our toddler we had fruit and milk for her. The front desk offered to deliver us a refrigerator in case ours wasn't cold enough.

We love the location! The trolley stop is right below the hotel. To the other side is Petco Park and the Gaslamp district is just a stones throw away. We will definitely be coming back here for future visits!

The lot across the street costs $15 a day to park.  But Good luck being able to park when there's a game like there was tonight's game, Padres vs. Giants.

The hotel wasn't anything special, but it is adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center and everything else you want to be near when you're in downtown. San Diego Zoo is just a hop and jump away and many restaurants to select from within walking distance of the hotel. We stayed here during spring break and we had no idea that there was a big game in town the Giants vs. The Padres. Flocks of Orange and black paraded the streets at night  and inside the hotel, in fact I believe you can buy your tickets for the game inside the hotel. After all they do have a direct escalator that takes you into the stadium. I did enjoy my stay here, it felt like I was staying in a lavish hotel, it was a good get away.

Great hotel. There for 2 days on business, and everything was spot on.  The pool was great for laps, the jacuzzi nice to relax in.  Fitness center is great, clean.  Staff all friendly and efficient and gave me a beautiful room overlooking there bay on the 19th floor.  The beds super comfortable and the room overall a nice place to work in for a couple of days.  You can't beat the location.  I recommend this hotel.

I stayed here for a conference located within the hotel. All meals were provided through hotel services and were fantastic. Because I have a food allergy, the wait staff provided me with generous portions to accommodate me at each meal. The staff was extremely professional and friendly, and the food was always delicious.
The hotel itself is nice. The front desk staff is quite courteous. There is plenty to do within walking distance of the hotel. Cool views from the rooms and pool. You can get free wifi if you join the loyalty program. Overall,
very nice stay.

I booked this hotel by chance on sale on Priceline.com .  I did the gamble, where you select the star level you want and they just give you a hotel that is 4 stars.  You get a low rate, since you're gambling and don't get a choice in hotel.  Much to our good luck, we landed the Omni in San Diego!

We stayed here for my good friend's bachelorette party, and although we just stayed for one night, we loved it.  The bed was extremely comfortable and the room décor was amazing. I love when hotels have white bed linens, and the Omni does not disappoint. The bathroom was super clean and the room was very homey.  The staff was very helpful and friendly. We requested a cot on our way out to dinner/bars, and when we got back around 2 AM, our cot was there waiting for us. They were also able to accommodate our early check-in, which was great, because a party goer got to go to the room early to decorate before the bachelorette's arrival.  Our room also had a great balcony overlooking the busy city streets, so that was great as well.

The location was prime, as it is right on the outskirts of Gaslamp, right across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel, and our restaurant we ate at.  We enjoyed a great night's sleep, and I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Best birthday daycation! Thanks Omni for making this a memorable one.

From the valet attendants, guest check-in concierge, to room service....ALL staff were hospitable and very accommodating.

Great location, especially if you're here to watch a baseball game. Mostly everything is accessible by walking. From various restaurants, bars, to shopping.

The hotel itself is nice. Clean and spacious, we were on the 20th floor facing the marina due to my birthday upgrade! King bed is okay, not too stiff or too soft. Bathroom has bright lighting adds a special touch. Only thing that sucks is the $30 per night valet parking. You can self park your car at another lot which is far from the hotel.

Overall, we would definitely stay here again when we're in town. Great hotel!

Don't order room service or a meal at McCormick & Schmick's unless you have the entire day free to wait.  Yesterday a breakfast of pancakes...45 minutes.  A lunch sandwich....1 hour wait ( this with the restaurant less than 1/3rd full).
The capper.....a sandwich from room service...."will take 45 minutes sir". Called back after 1 hour....."we have been busy so I will put the order in now sir and will be delivered in 45 minutes sir"!
Went over to the Hard Rock for a ham & cheese!
Pathetic!

Stayed the night for a Padre game on Cinco de Mayo and had a blast. A positive experience from check in to check out, noticeably better than the nonsense across the street. We watched the last couple of extra innings from the room because the seventh inning dry spell was running far too long.

The employees at check in were super friendly and the guy who brought a roll-away up to the room at 3am was surprisingly awake and courteous. The rooms themselves were very nice and we will definitely be using this location again.

So, I like this hotel for a variety of reasons:
1. it is right in the gaslamp, and there are restaurants galore!
2. the front desk staff are super AWESOME! friendly, and the door men are also tres adorbs.

3. the room was great. love the bathroom and the beds were comfortable (even tho i had to share with my mom - hmph).
4. the pool is oohhhhh so delightful. i love the rooftop pool and the cozy jacuzzi. the whole ambiance is just so relaxing for me.
5. we got a refrigerator for free in our room - definitely a plus when we were having leftovers!

i stayed here for a conference and hope to be able to return - You were outstanding, Omni!!!

Birthdays are always reason to celebrate but turning 30 is a big one. I wanted a home-away-from-home setting for my special day. Living in San Diego I only go downtown to shop, eat or dance so this was the opportunity to experience it in a whole new light. The Omni is in a perfect location; right near the trolley line, convention center, Petco Park and the heart of the Gaslamp District.  The deal I found through hotels.com was incredible.

Checking in Friday night was easy; valet is $38 per day with in-and-out privileges; the parking garage they use is a bit cheaper but if you plan on doing a lot of tourist stuff it ends up being cheaper to valet. Everyone was friendly, warm, and welcoming; the front desk picked the perfect room for me - the view over the bay and Coronado Bridge. The room itself was spacious; I love the layout of the bathroom although I will admit it is a bit awkward to have the wood blinds and no fan so if more than one person is in the room going to the bathroom might be uncomfortable.

Saturday was my actual birthday and I had about 13 members of my family come to celebrate; I was impressed that there was plenty of space for all of us and the food. Had it not been almost 90 degrees out we could have taken it to the pool deck which is awesome. The room had a small balcony, enough to stand on and look out but not much more.

Checking out on Sunday was just as easy as checking in; they leave the bill on your door, unlike other places that make a ton of noise sliding it under. I ended up having way more to carry than I could handle so the bellhop who came up was awesome! It is clear that everyone who works for the Omni genuinely enjoys what they do and making sure that their guests have the perfect stay. It was amazing how, even though I live 15 minutes away, I felt like I was somewhere else - next time I need a staycation I will definitely be looking at the Omni!

Beautiful hotel with great service. I was on the 7th floor and the noise level was a little loud coming coming from the clubs across the street. I guess the windows aren't sound proof. Pillows aren't comfortable but overall great hotel and I would stay here again.

I will definitely stay here again, but under different conditions.  Part of me really likes the sounds of the city.  An occasional trolley, traffic, etc. doesn't bother me too much. I guess I should have gotten a clue with the ear plugs in the night stand.  

What I don't like is loud music and screaming at 2 AM.  I know this is the party area of downtown so while I didn't expect total silence, I do believe I just had a bad room in an otherwise nice hotel.  If you want a little more quiet, stay away from the X14-X10 rooms (X being the floor number).

The first night I thought the noise was coming from the Hard Rock Hotel, and dealt with it.

The 2nd night I figured out it was coming from The Tin Fish bar directly below us. If I was staying another night or two, I would have asked to be moved.

Otherwise, I loved the location. We took the trolley green line to Qualcomm Stadium from right outside the hotel.  There are several good restaurants within 2 blocks, and a Starbucks right around the corner.  I parked myself across the street - why pay the hotel $25 to drive your car into the same lot you can park yourself?

Girl at the front desk (Asian with glasses) being a total bitch and rude. I already booked online a deal that I got from my friend working there, instead of being happy I'm even staying there she was asking me all these questions and made me pay the full price. Anyways I feel bad for her and karma already made her ugly, so I'm going to enjoy my trip.
Advice would be to do the check in online and not expecting nice service.

I booked a room for my fiancee's birthday, and they upgraded us to an incredible suite that overlooks Coronado island, the world famous convention center, and the outfield of Petco park. The best part of our stay was being greeted by a tray of ice cold champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and a handwritten birthday card signed by the staff upon entering our room - that kind of gesture is a nice touch that makes me think highly of their overall service.

We also enjoyed their very hot jacuzzi, gym, and the free water bottles provided by the valet service (special shout-out to Marc, who always greeted us by name and remembered our room number).

Stayed here for the Rock N Roll San Diego Marathon & Half event going on over the weekend. It's at a great location across the street from the SD Convention Center, and literally next door to Petco Park and the Gaslamp District.

No problem finding food or parking for the hotel or restaurants nearby, and you can always bring food back to the hotel if the wait was too long. TIP: Park across the street in the L Street & 6th Structure.. there are two entrances which is annoying because it means there are two structures inside one structure (WTF right?). One entrance is $8 maximum per day parking, and the other entrance is $15 max a day. So annoying, but SO MUCH cheaper than Valet at the Omni which is $8 for 3 hours or $38 for a whole day. are you freaking kidding me Omni?!

The hotel was really nice, clean and interestingly, smelled good. The corridors where the rooms were smelled really pleasant.. The room was great and had amazing floor to ceiling windows that overlooked the convention center/Gaslamp district.

The metro rail stopped nearby but you could hardly hear the sounds from the room, of course the higher up you are the less you heard. Toiletries were great and plentiful. The bedding was superb and very comfortable (that or my bedding at home sucks and I need to upgrade) probably the latter but the bedding here is fantastic!.

I'd definitely stay here again if I could/was in the area again. But only if I was with an event.. the rate I got off hotels.com was $302~ after taxes & fees.. the rate with RnR SD was like.. $50-70 less.

The Omni is a very nicely appointed, modern hotel right in the heart of downtown San Diego on the edge of the famous Gaslamp Quarter, adjacent to Petco Park (home of the Padres), and across the street from the Convention Center. You can't beat it for getting around on foot in downtown San Diego.

With that proximity to everything, it is a little bit noisy. For me, the most annoying part of the downtown vibe was the ever-present "pedi-cabs," which are blasting loud music nowadays as they pedal by or stop and wait for patrons. If you're not facing the L St. side of the hotel, you're safe there, though there are train tracks on the other side of the hotel.

It's not a huge deal. If you want peace and quiet, you're better off going to a resort in the country. If you want night life, the Omni is a great place to be. You can stumble home from any number of bars and restaurants in the Gaslamp, and since it's based at the foot of 5th Avenue (which is getting to be like a Vegas Strip in San Diego minus the gambling) you're at least not right in the middle of the chaos but a few blocks from it.

The hotel also has a nice pool on its sixth floor. I stayed after Thanksgiving in November and there were no attendants on duty, so it could have used some tidying up, but the water was heated and comfortable and it was a great place to enjoy the San Diego sunshine.

One final note: As I write this, the cost of parking at the hotel is $38, which is too rich for my blood. (The Marriott up the street charges $40, so it's not just the Omni). But if you simply go around the corner there's parking garage at 6th and K that only costs $15 overnight. You can actually park your car in the parking structure right across the street from the hotel, take the elevator down, and you're right there. I wasn't the only person to find this as there was quite a line of cars trying to get out right around check out time. Luckily it was only an additional $1 per hour after 24 hours.

Overall, I recommend this hotel for its nice, clean, modern furnishings and its close proximity to all of downtown San Diego.

I stayed here recently on a work trip, lucky me! Beautiful hotel, prime location within walking distance to everything.  Be warned that because of its prime location, it is definitely noisy. Bass bumping from the bars, drunk people frolicking around. My room was directly facing the main street overlooking the Hard Rock and it was the weekend, so needless to say I didn't get much sleep. But no complaints there, just ask for a quiet room and I'm sure they'll take care of you. As an added bonus they have a bridge connecting to Petco Park, which was great since I was in town for an event there.  

Most importantly, the service was top notch. I'm a huge sucker for good service, and they definitely delivered. No fake niceties like you would expect from a luxury hotel. Just good ole warm, welcoming, hospitable staff- just the way I like it!

Valet is pretty steep at $40/night, but there's a parking structure right across from the hotel.

The location is great, a short cab ride from the airport, right next to the Gaslamp area, and offers great views of the bay and Petco Park.  I was lucky and had a room at a corner, so on one side I had a great view of the bay, and from my bathroom there was a view of Petco Park - can't say I ever had a view from a bathroom before!  There is even a pedestrian bridge that connects the Omni directly into Petco Park.

The room was very clean and well appointed. I really appreciated a very good selection of HD channels for the TV.  All hotels now have flat screens, but few offer more than a few channels in HD.

The hotel is close to a huge concentration of restaurants all within walking distance.  Overall a very comfortable stay!

We come here once or twice a year for business. This facility has been well reviewed and the only thing i want to say is that one of my most favorite travel stories of all times happened at the Omni.

A couple of years ago I drove from Boise to San Diego (that is another story for another day) and when i drive, i drive in comfortable clothes (camo shorts, sweatshirt, old cap and a backpack) any way when i arrived i parked in the parking garage and walked up to the the front door and got stopped by the bellman who said, "I am sorry sir we don't allow indigents into the hotel" somehow I had the presence of mind to say, "OK, but its doctor indigent to you Sir!". needless to say the bellman turned as red as I have ever seen anyone get and the hotel treated my group and me like kings during our stay.

At any rate the Omni is one of the nicer hotels we frequent, give it a try!!

Staff is very helpful and location is great (we went to the Padres game yesterday which was right next door, convention center is right across the street).  We had to switch rooms because the first one was too small for two adults and two kids plus the bathroom walls were hard to close so no privacy.  Loud outdoor noises during the night.  Wifi is not free.

Omni hotel is wonderful in location, architecture, events, the pool area in the rooftop, the views, everything! (I cannot comment on the sleeping part, as I have not been an overnight guests, but I have attended many events and always very satisfied).
Last Thursday attended an international fitness convention reception and, as usual, everything is always very nicely organized, meeting rooms are super spacious, you don't have that feel of too overcrowded like in other hotels.

The pool area is fantastic, with plenty of chaise lounges and modern looking tables and chairs to chill and watch the sunset or the stars (or the sun if you feel in need of some free Vitamin D). Both the pool and Jacuzzi have a device to cater the disabled guests, which is a very and needed touch. The proximity to both the Convention Center and Petco park is great and Omni does not deceive in anything. Front desk super friendly.

Parking prices can be very steep in this area, so you have to consider that. But if you plan to talk/take the train/trolley, this location is also perfect for that.

This is our fifth time at the Omni and as always we are happy with our visit!  We come here for a stay-cation or when we are going to see the Padres play.

We had a sticker shock when we were told valet parking is $40 a night!  But it didn't deter us from staying two nights.  We asked for wine glasses and a refrigerator and they delivered it within an hour of checking in. The staff were very polite and professional at every turn.

I rate the hotel itself a 3.5 stars. Located right next to Petco stadium, you can take the escalator from the hotel lobby and walk acrossthe way directly to the stadium.

If you want a quiet santuary to relax, be sure to check what events are happening at the stadium during your intended stay.   We stayed the night they had the Monster car show next door and the loud sound of monster truck engines revving easily penetrated the glass windows.  

There is only 1 restaurant inside this hotel: McCormick  n Schmicks which specializes in seafood.  There is also a small coffee shop/sundries shop that serves Peets coffee. Since you are close to Gaslamp, finding food n coffee nearby is not an issue.  Right next door is TinFish, a good seafood joint. Just stick to the fried seafood.

Valet parking is a whopping $40! Park in the parking structure next door $15 overnight.

Pool is open until 10pm. Fitness center is 24hours which is great.  Free water,  apples, & headphones.

The rooms were clean and the bed comfy.  Robes and a small coffee machine in the room.  No fridge.

After checking in, Dane greeted us and took our luggage to the room.  Dane was polite, friendly and professional.  He also gave us some tips on which restaurants to eat at the Gas Lamp Quarter.  The following day David helped us get my friend's car from the Valet Parking.  David was very pleasant to speak with.  When the car arrived, we got two small water bottles and they placed it in the cup holders; very thoughtful!  

~Valet parking is pricey even if you are staying at the hotel.  It cost $38 dollars a day.  Across the street you can self park your car for $15 a day.  The garage is open 24 hours.

The standard room was clean but small, I thought it would be bigger.  Decoration was simple and classy ( yelp.com/user_local_phot… ).  

I got two queen beds but it looked like full beds ( yelp.com/user_local_phot… ).  

I liked the layout of the bathroom, it was spacious ( yelp.com/user_local_phot… ).  

The scent of the travel size lotion, shampoo and conditioner that the hotel provided had a refreshing scent; the ingredients contained Aloe Vera.  They also provided a travel size mouth wash.  Room Service is expensive, in addition to the amount of your order, you must add 20% plus $3.00 tip.  I got the Chicken Tenders with fries and my friend ordered the Peanut Butter Cheesecake.  When I called they said it would take 30 minutes but it was ready within 15 minutes.  The Chicken Tender was good, it was not the frozen kind. My meal came with mini ketchup and Tabasco bottles.  

If I plan to go back to San Diego I would not mind staying here again.  I think the hotel is small.  The lounge area is not big and for food you can eat at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant.  There is  a fitness center, outdoor terrace with pool, fireplace and the Terrace Bar and Grill.  Pets are allowed but there is additional fee.  The Omni Hotel has a Kids Program.  The children will receive a bag filled with fun items, milk and cookies delivered to the room.  Parents can also ask to borrow toys, books and games.

What I really love about this hotel is the location.  It is very very close to the Gas Lamp Quarter. There are a lot of great places to eat and hang out. The hotel is connected to the PETCO park and it's near the Convention Center.

Great place to stay with beautiful views and easy walk to great food choices. Only issue is the shutter openings on the bathroom wall - no privacy.

Booked this one through Priceline and they definitely let me know it meant I got bottom of the barrel room options. That's fine... Next time, match prices and we will book directly through the hotel. Don't get me wrong, they were not mean about it, but gently let us know.
At least I got a top floor room with a decent city view, but the walls prove to be thin enough to hear our neighbors. I also had to get my boots and jumpsuit on to kill two baby cockroaches in the bathroom. Hopefully this is the last time I stay at The Omni in Gaslamp (please give me something different Priceline :)).

well if ever a hotel deserved 5 stars - this is it! Helpful, helpful, helpful staff, Great location, great facility, great views, great rooms, terrific conference facility, easy access to the ball park, convention center, gas light district and more! Polite, helpful, courteous, kind and more. Best of the best for sure. My nights and days here are quite memorable, indeed! 7 Stars for sure. Thank you Omni! Especially the front desk , who many all of my concerns evaporate! Just ask and it will happen.

This hotel looked very nice from the outside, I got to the hotel and was greeted nicely by the front desk employee. I was told that they were doing some type of electricity breaker checks and provided water and a flashlight. The front desk employee assured me that it would be for a very short duration.

I got up to the room and started to work on my laptop. From 11pm till 2am there was no electricity or water. Horrible experience, I am in awe that this hotel was so inconsiderate that they did not close down for the night.

I had booked my room on price line therefore I had no recourse for the night.

Definitely would not recommend this hotel -

Wow! Amazing experience especially with Erin as our front desk agent. We changed our mind at the last minute and requested to be switched from a double to king bed and she accommodated with no questions asked. The amenities were nice, the pool and gym on the 6th floor had a nice vibe and sick view. My only negative feedback is that I wish the room was bigger, I stayed at the Omni LA the day before and the sizes was almost double and I paid $50 more for this location. Other than that, park across the street in the deck to save money $20 vs $40 for overnight.

For the price, I was sure expecting Omni to have it all...Unfortunately the price tag didn't match the goods.  
Don't get me wrong this hotel is conveniently located in the Gaslamp district, the staff is beyond cordial and the building itself is lovely. But for almost $500 (with a Groupon) the room just didn't provide that awe inspiring wow-factor.

The pros-
If you call ahead and let the hotel know you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary they will provide a complimentary bottle of champagne and some tasty treats!
The staff is amazing. Check-in was a breeze and the automatic check-out was painless.
The views are amazing. Was on about the 14th floor and had both a view of the city and a snipet of the bay.
The room placement is awesome. The bed was facing the balcony so we got a nice view as we slept and could even open the doors to let in a nice breeze.
Bed was cozy!

The cons-
Really pricey.
The rooms needed and update. I wasn't really feeling the carpet. I prefer the look of hardwood floors, it's more sophisticated.
Valet is about $34 a night -_-.
No late check-out -___-

Overall loved the place but didn't feel like I got a good deal. I stayed at the Palomar in SD and it's a lot nicer for half the price. I would suggest this place for sports fans because it's so close to Petco Park and they even have their own entrance into the park.

Five star hotel, 5 star service, 5 star view.

I've stayed here twice now even though I live in SD. In fact, I've stayed in lots of downtown hotels and this is hands down my favorite place to stay after a long night of fun in the gaslamp!

The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. The beds are comfy and the pillows are just right. The towels are fluffy and the linens look brand new.

From the moment you pull in to valet until the moment you leave they treat you like royalty...which I am in my own mind, but everyone was soooooo nice that I wondered if they could actually see my invisible tiara :)

Perhaps I've spent too many a night in Vegas hotels where they just bang on your door at 7am and yell "HOUSEKEEPING!!!" because I really loved how pleasant the housekeeping staff was at Omni by starting my day with "Good morning Ms _____. This is housekeeping checking to see if we could make up the room. We'll return later, have a pleasant day!" Such a nice way to start the day.

Keep in mind there's a $30+ parking fee...which is standard for most hotels in the Gaslamp area.

This is one of the best options when staying in town for a trade show.  I shockingly was able to snag a cheaper rate here than some of the other hotels nearby.  This is definitely nicer than some of the other hotels in the area so I was surprised at the rate (booked directly with the hotel).  The rooms are nice, and I had a room looking out on Petco park.  The windows can actually open a crack which is so nice to get some fresh air. On the downside, I'm a super light sleeper and could hear the trains below at all hours of the night. Earplugs took care of that, so the fresh air was worth the trade off.

The convention center is right across the street with fantastic restaurants all around so the location can't be beat.  The rooms were clean and had complimentary robes, shower caps, a sewing emergency kit and were nice. I did have coffee in the morning from the room coffee maker and it was the usual....ok, less then adequate coffee which is found in most hotels.  I would stay here again if I'm ever in town again!

We were here for a conference for 4 nights. If I was rating conference facilities and staff this would be five stars. However the hotel stay was sub par. Room was very small and bed not that comfortable. After the first night we reported to management that there was a strong smell of sewer in our room. It was never taken care of. After the first day housekeeping just pushed the used coffee machine back in drawer and did not clean up or replenish condiments. Beware...parking was $40 a day. Cost almost as much as the rent car!  Usually love staying at Omni but Omni San Diego not up to their usual high standards.

Stayed here for a week in December using a combination of Groupon and nights booked through Expedia. First room I had offered a dismal view and lots of noise from other rooms. Changed rooms and had wonderful view and peace and quiet. The experience here varies wildly based on the room location.

The staff offers all the customer service you learn to expect when visiting an Omni property. Housekeeping, valet, front desk, waiters- all doing their jobs well and with a smile.

I've stayed at the Marriott and the Hilton before to be close to the Convention Center and depending on which end of the center your conference/show is in you will be close to your hotel or walk a mile to the conference. With the Omni you will be right across the street in the middle. A safer bet.

The rooftop pool is small but nicely designed. A nice place to hang and catch those California rays if you can.

Great location! Comfortable accommodations. I secured a great rate on hotwire. We received an upgrade to a balcony suite overlooking the bay. It was a lovely view, but quite noisy with trains and trolleys. We didn't mind it, but I could see being a concern was light sleepers. Service was attentive and when we were wrongly charged for wifi the charges were quickly reversed. Valet is pricey but that's the norm for gaslamp hotels.

This is the Omni, right? Because when I booked my stay here for Friday night I swear I was staying at the Motel 6.

Granted I was able to score a fabulous deal through Priceline, the Omni still has a reputation to upkeep and their standards fell super short to my expectations as a luxury hotel.

Check in was nice and easy. Champagne was offered which was a nice touch after a long day of driving. However, the room on the 9th floor couldn't have been a worse pick. The view was at the 90 degrees angle of the hotel so a great big wall impeded what would have been clear view overlooking the pool.

The bathroom and its toiletries were the most appreciated parts of this room. The towels were plentiful, there were two bar soaps, shampoo, conditioner, mouth wash, body lotion, and an emergency sewing kit! And yes, I brought all these items back home with me!

Now the worst part which came as a huge disappointment were the uncomfortable and cheap double beds of the room. The mattresses must be old and due for a replacement because we sank right into them. And there's no blanket! I mean come on, Omni! I know it's spring time but the weather at night is still chilly. Sure, the temperature can be controlled but what hotel doesn't offer blankets?! Then when we called front desk for blankets we were given a speech that there is a blanket already between the two sheets of the bed. Lies!

Parking is steep at the hotel. Save yourself $25 and pay $15 for overnight parking at the public garage next door. And best of all, skip the fancy and overpriced McCormick and Schmicks and treat yourself to some flavor at one of Gaslamp's restaurants.

Service is impeccable. The guest services is top tier.
Rooms are beautiful.
I asked for a bay view room and it was. It was a little more industrial that I expected, having never stayed down that way before. But it was pretty. I got to stare at the Hilton, which is where I wanted to stay originally.  But the Omni pool really got my attention, along with every child and baby. This is why it got four instead if five stars. The pool was overcrowded, and children were screaming everywhere. So much for a relaxing "no kid weekend".
It was very loud and very crowded. So if you stay clear of the pool area on a Saturday, you'll be loving this hotel.
Everything else was perfect.

Immaculate, Spacious, Luxurious... Everything you hope to see in a hotel...

Located near the SD Convention Center, the Omni is a gorgeous building with a beautiful lobby that is modern, warm, and clean.  The staff checking me in were kind, friendly, and prompt.  My room was the epitome of luxury.  Large, clean, with very modern but elegant appointments.  The bed was soft and comfortable.  The bathrooms were plush and full of the conveniences you would expect.  All the appliances in the room were up-to-date.

The fitness center was excellent with newer machines, clean fresh towels, and plenty to drink.

I was very pleased with the Omni SD.

Smack in the middle of all attractions this place is the perfect spot for a long weekend or an extended vacation. It's concierge service (Mr Peter) is knowledgable, friendly, and always willing to help. It's lobby although small is clean, crisp, and inviting. The front desk always with a smile. Rooms are spacious with comfortable bedding and Pillows that help give you a good night sleep after an all day run around the city. Rooms always kept impeccable especially the bathrooms even after a night of sloppy existence. The gym room with plenty of equipment for an early or late workout of coarse after a refreshing dip in the well kept pool.

The hotel is located right next to the Petco stadium,  train, and convention center, and gas lamp district.  Can't really ask for a better location to have a hotel.

The check in process was very quick and the staff was really nice. No additional charge for roll away bed request that is a very nice amenity to be included at the room rate.

Lobby was very updated and clean, rooms are spacious and clean, views aren't the greatest but not too bad, pool area is chill kinda slow, but overall I was very happy with hotel and service.

Parking is $40/Night if you valet, or you can save money by parking on the structure in front for $15/Night

This place SUCKS.  Oh, let me count the ways...

First, room design is atrocious.  The architect deserves a beating, and then should lose his license for such a pi$$ poor design.  

The closet is RIGHT behind the door to the room.   Apparently the closet door was getting bumped by the entrance door.  The "fix" was to put self closing hinges on the closet door... so when you try to go into the closet, the door keeps closing on you.  About as annoying as that 5 year old on a flight who keeps kicking your seat.  

No fans in the bathroom.  Yep, that's right.  At the Omni you can drop a nice load and then enjoy the smell until it wafts around your room.  This probably would explain why, as I walked down the hall to our room, and we passed an open door to a room that was being cleaned, we got to enjoy the stench of someone else's colossal dump.

To make things even better, the bathroom doors had SHUTTERS on them...

REALLY???  Shutters?  Who was the rocket scientist who thought THAT was a good design?

Basically the stench, and the sounds one makes while on the can, are able to be shared with other occupants of the room. How lovely.  

But it gets better.  While I was there, periodically, I'd get a whiff of something that could best be described as methane or sewage.  Turns out, when I showered, I could hear the sink drain bubbling... why does this happen?  Because when they built the place, the plumbers didn't install proper venting on the drain pipes.  So when you shower, the water draining forms a vacuum, and sucks the water out of the sink's p-trap... which then allows sewer gasses to leak into the room until you put some water down the sink drain to refill the p-trap.  LOVELY.  

The toilet.  Flushes with so much power it sends whatever is in the bowl splashing up on the seat, (and you if you're still sitting on the can).  Oh yes, the Omni just keeps on giving.  

But wait, there's more.  The heat wasn't working, so they send a guy up.  He discovers that someone else had shut the heat off because a part was broken, and the heat was constantly on.  Why wasn't this fixed then?  Most likely, the last occupant of the room had a problem at late hours, so the quick fix was to just shut the heater off.  Ok, fair enough, but why then, when that occupant left, wasn't it properly fixed so the NEXT person in the room didn't have to deal with it?

Because Omni apparently doesn't have any protocol to take note of an issue like this.  Hey, Omni, it's called a clip board and a piece of paper.  Make a note.  Fix it when the person leaves so the next guy doesn't have to deal with it.  DUH.  

No dresser.  They give you two super tiny drawers under the TV, but there's no real storage space to speak of.

Wifi.  Not exactly "free".  You have to sign up for their bull#$@% membership in order to get the "free" wifi...

Hey, Omni, you already charged an arm and a leg for the room.  How about NOT trolling for email addresses so you can bombard us with more sales pitches?  Just a crazy idea.  I mean, if Motel 6 can do it, I'm sure you can too.  

In all fairness, the room was clean, and the staff nice.  But the room design sucked, and the other issues were annoying.

Very good location!
Petco park has a connecting bridge to this hotel.
The train stop is right around the corner!
Plenty to do in downtown.
Room was clean, staff was friendly.
Not a fan if the bathroom doors though, they have shutters, no glass, just shutters.
The view was awesome, we got to see the fireworks from the night's game from our room.
The room we got was very quite and comfortable, I slept like a baby. :)
Overall good stay!

Desk Staff = Very BAD Attitude.

(1) Staff at lobby check in desk snubbed us because we booked through a third party ( hotels.com ).

(2) Be aware that there is no wifi included. Must pay $14 extra/day if you book through third party.

(3) No cell signal in room (thus NO internet). We have AT&T.

(4) Was told by the valet to dial "0" to bring around our car. Later when we dialed "0" we were told by a snotty staff member -- due to high volume of cars -- to come down to the curb with our valet ticket and request the car ourselves. We immediately went to the curb to find 6 valets standing around chatting with each other, no cars to be seen.

(5) We requested late checkout at 1 p.m. Denied -- since we booked through third party.  At 11 a.m., we told us to immediately get out of the hotel because there is another gues arriving at noon.

(6) Beautiful room, nice decor, very clean, view of ballpark from the room.  Super nice valets. No complaint on room at all.  Desk staff very unaccommodating and condescending. Buyer beware.

Had such a great experience here! The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and nice, our view was awesome, the price was right, and its right across the street from the Hard Rock hotel in the gaslamp district so great location.
Valet parking is expensive and they have no self parking but you can park right across the street and you can leave your car overnight. Instead of $80 for valet we paid $33! (Friday night to Sunday morning)
Also it was my birthday and they have complimentary champagne in the room waiting for us with a card signed by everyone at the front desk and little cheesecakes! So sweet and thoughtful!
