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).

A great place to stay!

The staff at the Omni was exceptional. They made us feel immediately welcome. They had a recommendation or two whenever we asked for things to see or places to eat. The Omni is pretty grand, but there was no snootiness whatsoever--even when we walked into marble tiled lobby soaking wet and wearing cheap plastic rain ponchos. The rooms and amenities are pretty typical of a quality hotel. The staff upgraded our room at no additional charge so we ended up with a nice view overlooking Chinatown and North Beach all the way to the Golden Gate. Ultimately it is always the staff that makes a hotel great and this proved to be the case at the Omni.

We had an excellent dinner at Cafe Maria, just off Washington Square. The Caprese Salad is "to die for." It's a pleasant 15 min walk from the Omni and the prices are very reasonable for such quality dining. Eat breakfast at one of the many excellent cafes on Columbus Street.

Nice Hotel

This is a great hotel for a short visit, not a longer vacation as we had. The hotel is located in the business district so most restaurants and shops close after business hrs and on weekends. Chinatown and Washington Square are in walking distance so as long as you like Chinese and Italian it's great. Otherwise go to Pier39 at Fishermans Wharf via bus service for seafood and sea lions! Most dining is in the mid to higher range in SanFran. Bus service was excellent, safe and reliable, even at night. The hotel was a little noisy at night in the hallways with business travelers coming and going at all hrs of the early morning who were not respectful of the time. There are plenty of doormen, but none who offered to assist with our luggage so we had to take our own. The housekeeping staff was excellent as well as the concierge [...]. The room was just large enough with a nice bathroom. Overall it was a nice hotel but I would not stay there again for a long vacation.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

It is nice to spend a couple hrs walking, starting down Fillmore Street and then ending at Union Street and have lunch or coffee in an outdoor cafe. The shops were great and unique on Union. You can easily get there by bus. Also you can walk about 6 blks down California St and spend an hr or two at the Ferry Bldg, especially on Tues, Thurs or Saturday when they have the outdoor market.

Komen 2010 weekend

This hotel is beautiful and the staff could not have been nicer. They are wonderful with children staying at the hotel. Gave our son a goodie backpack and milk with cookies after we checked in. Unfortunately we paid extra for two double beds and it was not available once we checked in. For the amount of money we spent it was a bit disappointing. One king size bed and a fold out couch didn't cut it.

A Wonderful Hotel--Except for the Parking!

This hotel is close to the Financial District and to Chinatown. The check-in and check-out staff is helpful, offering map directions to restaurants and how to get back to the freeway. The room was spacious and clean, although with a limited view. The amenities were good in the room (snacks to buy, q-tips, etc.) The beds were comfortable, the room mostly quiet, and the valet service good. The temperature wasn't easily adjustable, but there was plenty of hot water. The price of parking was too high ($60/24 hrs.!) Get there by bus, BART, a friend's car, or shuttle. Just don't drive there!

San Fran vacation

This was our first stay at an Omni Hotel but it won't be our last. From the moment we arrived until we left we were treated royally. Decor is from another time period but is fresh and clean. We would have liked a small fridge in the room but that was all. Everything was spotlessly clean. Our only complaint: we didn't get "sweet dreams" candy every night!

Take the 30-45 minute drive to see Muir Woods. Don't let GPS or mapquest fool you. The distance is short and well worth the drive from the city.
