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.

Great service!

The staff at the Omni were incredible! Everyone was friendly, professional, effecient! They answered questions, gave directions, all with a smile. This staff didn't just smile as if they were working they SMILED like they were honestly happy to see you! We requested towels since we had left the do not disturb sign on our door in error and the towels were in our bath when we arrived upstairs 10 mins later! I want this hotel and staff in every city I visit!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

We walked to China Town since it is around the corner. You can catch a cable car on the corner and get to the Embarcadero & the Wharf. They have tour buses that you can hop on/hop off; $35.00 for 2 days/20 stops.

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.

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!

Impressed by service

Impressed by the service, everyone was always in a good mood and had great disposition to offer directions if help if needed. My 20 month old baby was sick from her stomach one day and staff came promptly twice to change sheets around 2 am and 4 am, didn't have to wait much and staff was always nice. Also the doormen were always helpful and very attentive.

Our great weekend in San Francisco

My husband and I spent a great weekend in San Francisco and chose the Omni for our stay. The location was perfect and getting around is really easy whether you choose to walk, use public transportation - or take cabs, which we did alot of the time. The doormen were super nice and always helpful with directions and hailing cabs for us. One night were late for a dinner reservation and the doorman called ahead to the restaurant to let them know we were on the way. The staff at the bar/restuarant, Bob's, in the Omni are great. You can't miss the Dirty Bob martini with hand stuffed blue cheese olives. Perfect way to relax before heading to dinner.
