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).

Weekend Tourists

We came up from LA for the weekend to just be tourists in San Francisco. The OMNI is located within walking distance to so many areas (China Town, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, Embarcadero, AT&T Park, Little Italy) and is only 4 blocks from a BART station if you're wanting to go to other areas. We took BART to go to/from the airport and to the Orpheum Theater to see the Lion King. There's also a cable car stop right outside the hotel. Since the OMNI is right in the heart of the Financial District, a lot of things in that area are closed on weekends since they cater to the Monday-Friday crowd, but you'll find lots of things open just a short walk away. It was nice to stay in a quieter, less touristy area actually. The staff at the OMNI is the best you'll find, from the doorman to the front desk to the maids to room service. Upon arrival into our room, we had a hand-written note from the maid along with a note from the hotel staff welcoming us and telling us to not hesitate to let them know if we needed anything at all. Anytime we would pass a maid in the hallway, she would say hello and ask us how our day was. The doormen asked us if they could point us in the direction of anything each time we left, and they welcomed us back each time we returned. We couldn't believe how friendly everyone was, and how each person seemed to be in such a good mood, enjoying what they do. Our bed was very comfortable. We can't stop talking about the pillows! The room itself was spacious and everything was in perfect working order. Be sure to join their rewards program (it's FREE) for complimentary in-room wireless and daily morning beverages and newspaper (weekdays only) delivery.

Neighborhood dull on weekends

The hotel is truly a good one but recognize that it is located in the financial/banking portion of San Francisco. As a result, there are closed banks and closed restaurants in the area on weekends. It is not a far walk, however, to Market Street. Otherwise, the hotel restaurant is quite overpriced and there is no hotel lobby shop at which you can purchase small items that you may have forgotten.

Great stay!

Coming home to a quiet, comfy room after an entire day of sightseeing/shopping was awesome. You wake up the next morning recharged and ready to explore MORE! Union Square, china town, ferry building are all within walking distance which made for endless shopping and eating options.

Good experience

Staff is extremely friendly. The room is ok but could be better for the price range. Beds are quite good. I had to turn off the A/C because it made too much noise. If you need to go to the airport take the hotel limo, costs about the same as a taxi and its so much more confortable.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

If you walk 10 minutes south and turn right on Market St there's a very nice shopping area with movie theaters, restaurants, etc. Also, walk 10 minutes east and you'll be in the embarcadero tram line, just 15 minutes ride to Pier 39.

Fun in San Francisco

Our stay at the Omni San Francisco was wonderful. The location is perfect for walking around and seeing the sites. Also, the Cable Car stop was right outside. The restaurant within the hotel was wonderful. The staff professional and courteous. The room was spectacular. My only note would be that I didn't like the light switch being outside of the bathroom door - not convenient when one person is up at night and another is sleeping. But that was a very small item. Our overall experience in San Francisco was wonderful and we will visit again and would defiitely stay at the Omni again. Thank you!

Great Stay

We only stayed a night for NYE. Great location, staff was super friendly, room service was on time and yummy. Our room was nothing special, but super clean and no weird smells! Fridge was stocked with goodies and drinks (all of which were marked up almost triple what you would buy at the store, but it was still nice to have if you wanted it.) We went to a concert at the Warfield and was easily in walking distance from the hotel, which was great! Also, plenty of food choice within a mile or two.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

When traveling to new places, having a map with GPS has alleviated the stress of getting lost and trying to figure out the proximity of places. The great thing about smartphone GPS is that you can put in the type of transportation (bus, rail, walking, driving) and it will give you the route specific to your type, which is extremely helpful!

Great location, service, comfortable

We arrived early and were checked in, no problem. The service was exceptional, the room very comfortable and high class. The location was fantastic, easy to walk to China Town, Union Square and Market Street, Ferry Building, and Movies. The doorman were very helpful with information. Will stay again.

Great Staff

The staff was extremely friendly and attentive, one of the best I've encountered at a hotel. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned, with turn-down service offered nightly. If it weren't for the location -- I wouldn't stay in the Financial District again. There's zero nightlife -- I would absolutely return to the Omni. It's a great bargain for a 4-star hotel. They would definitely need to replace carpeting, update fixtures and amenities to gain another star, but my suite was large and comfortable.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't believe the hotel's description of location; you ARE in the Financial District, which means everything in the immediate vicinity is completely dead on the weekends. However, you're only a 10 minute walk to the Ferry Building, where there's an expansive bazar, including dining options, farmers market and craft tables. However, many of these stalls are closed on the weekend.
