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.

I've stayed at this hotel before and a few of their others. Live the chain. Pillows are to die for. Great bed quiet room. Staff at checkin desk sooooo helpful. Bellmen good. Housekeeping a little passive aggressive. Little out of the way, but still good location.

Great Location, Great Hotel

This is a perfect hotel for folks who want quality, location, and comfort. Bob's steakhouse is inside the hotel along with Bob's bar, a great place for happy hour and a nightcap. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, and very clean. Value is great. Very convenient (5 blocks) from the BART Montgomery station, 5 block walk to the Ferry Building, 5 blocks to Union Square, two blocks to Chinatown. The California cable car line runs right in front of the hotel. Ample supply of taxis as well. I would recommend this place to anyone, whether traveling for business or pleasure. We will definitely stay here again.

Girlfriend's Birthday

I've stayed at every Omni in California and the San Francisco Omni has been the most disappointing. I'm 24 and go to Vegas a lot so I was looking for a hotel that was in the center of the night life and this hotel wasn't it. I suggest you book a room closer to union square where there's more things to do at night. And the parking is $52 +tax (aprox. $60) per day for weekdays I believe. That's a lot for parking for most people. The rooms are nice but there's no wow factor that would make me want to come back. My Gf and I went to the bar In the lobby. And mix drinks vary from $12-18 a drink. The lobby is really nice tho. Overall for a younger crowd I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Hunan Homes Restaurant is the best Chinese food I've ever had. It's really fresh and authentic Chinese not Americanized. It's located in China Town like 8-10 minutes walking. You might have to wait in line but its worth it and its not expensive either.

Superb Hotel and Restaurant

My magazine publishing company in San Francisco was looking to find a hotel that our clients could stay when visiting from out of town. Our concerns were creating a flawless transition from the hotel to a local restaurant. It was with great pleasure we found not only a 4-star hotel, but an extraordinary restaurant located within the premises of the Omni San Francisco Hotel - Bob's Steak and Chop House. The hotel stay was fabulous and dinner at Bob's was exquisite.

Gem of a hotel

My wife and I stayed at the Omni for an extended 4 day weekend. We couldn't have had a better fit for our SF visit. Its location is perfect for visiting the various sections of this vibrant and beautiful city. Walk around the corner to Chinatown. Walk or take a trolley car from outside the hotel to the busy wharf areas or walk to the many parks or upscale shopping sites. But the staff at The Omni are second to none. Very friendly and attentive to you enjoying your stay. Will definitely be back.
