Historic Nob Hill hotel blends old and new with top-notch steakhouse

The past is new again at this circa-1926 hotel atop Nob Hill. Originally built as a bank, the property features classic stonework, stained glass and decorative touches. The lobby is adorned with Italian marble, rich fabrics and Austrian crystal chandeliers. Guestrooms mirror this classic elegance. The hotel is within walking distance of the city's storied cable cars. Bob's Steak & Chop House, the on-site restaurant, has established itself as one of the best steakhouses in the entire city. The property also offers complimentary guided walking tours once a week.

Highlights
  • Florentine Renaissance architecture
  • Walking distance to the Financial District, Union Square and North Beach
  • Succulent steak at Bob's Steak & Chop House
  • Complimentary guided walking tours
Rooms

Accommodations (362 rooms, including 20 suites) feature high ceilings and crown molding -- common design elements from the 1920s. Rooms also come standard with flat-screen televisions, plush down comforters, marble bathrooms and robes. Special GetFit guest rooms also feature treadmills and other exercise equipment. One of the suites, the Kid Fantasy Suite, includes a room of bunk beds, bean-bag chairs and games. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all rooms (fees apply). Pets welcome (fees apply).

Features

The hotel has received numerous awards, including the AAA Four Diamond Award.

Technically, the property has existed since 1926, though it served as a bank until the 1980s. To put this history into context for guests, third-party guides lead complimentary walking tours around the property and surrounding neighborhoods. The hotel also provides family-specific walking tours, geared toward visitors with young kids.

All guests receive complimentary access to a huge fitness center with state-of-the-art exercise equipment. The hotel also provides shuttle service to Harding Park and Presidio Golf Course, the two closest greens (fees apply).

Enjoy a meal at Bob's Steak & Chop House, which specializes in corn-fed Midwestern prime beef but offers a variety of fish and vegetarian selections as well.

Just excellant

Arrived on a Thursday and left Sunday, for my wife's birthday getaway to San Francisco. The entire staff was curteous, professional and helpful. We loved the location. We immediately walked to nearby China Town for lunch and then down to Union Square. The cable car was right out the front door of the Omni and we rode it the next day to Union Square via Nob Hill and on Saturday to Fisherman's Wharf. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and quiet. The bar had a decent pour and the lamb was excellant at Bob's Steak House, there at the hotel.

Great well balanced hotel

I found the Omni to be the best hotel I've stayed in in SF. For the price it simply cannot be beat. It has character but not in that "tiny Euro-style" way of some of the upscale but boutique-like hotels in SF. It had good sized clean rooms and efficient service but not in the "mass produced giant business center" hotel model. Everyone was VERY friendly and helpful, especially the door staff. If I had a complaint, it would be that the onsite restaurant was really, really expensive. A cafe-alternative would have been nice, especially since most of the Starbucks in the area are closed on the weekends. But overall, for under $200/night, it was great!

Great location

The Omni is a classic hotel in great location within walking distance of the Ferry Building, lots of great restaurants, Chinatown, and Union Square. Staff is great. Maybe a little pricey but it is San Francisco so not unexpected.

Excellent hotel, service outstanding!!

Great hotel in a great location to see San Francisco, located near Chinatown and North Beach (great Italian restaurants). Cable car right in front of hotel and service was the best part of it, extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend!

Omni S.F. Hotel a great place to stay!

During our stay at the Omni S.F. we were able to catch the Cable Car just outside the doors and explore S.F., find dining within a short distance from the hotel. This hotel makes your stay a pleasant experience and truly meets the expectation of an exclusive hotel. The thing that I believe truly exceeded my expectation was the treatment of my daughter during our stay, the staff treated her as a valued guest which makes any child feel on top of the world...the milk and cookies at bed time are a nice touch also.
