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.

Valet and self parking are available (fees apply). There is free newspaper in the lobby.

Omni was great

The room rate and parking were discounted for our weekend stay since it is located in the financial district but the cable cars are right there in front of the hotel. The walk to Chinatown was quick and Union Square and the Ferry Building are also a short walk. We got up Saturday morning and drove to Napa to take the Wine Train (Loved it). We got back to the hotel just in time to take a cab to see Wicked (Loved it)! Checked out Sunday morning and spent the day in Chinatown with the car safely parked at the hotel for free! The staff was great and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Have the Egg Fu Young for breakfast at the Empress of China on Grant and Washington. Enjoy the view of Chinatown from the 6th floor restaurant and then go downstairs to see the jade and silk art collection and the guy in the little booth painting away!

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!

Extremely classy hotel

We went to the Ferry Building. We went to the Castro District. We shopped along Market Street. We went to Chinatown. Tranportation was easy to get to. The only bad part is the some of the shops and eateries close early because of the finanical district. Extremely quiet on the weekend.

I left my heart in San Francisco

I took my daughter for her college graduation. We stayed for a full week, and were able to visit a majority of the districts in SF.Iam disabled, but we were able to use cable cars, buses, etc. SF has a marvelous city transit system. We walked the city, ate at many restaurants, and found ourselves a bit sad to leave at the end of our trip. The Omni was a perfect location for us!
