We wanted to stay in the downtown area during our short trip from London and picked the Omni largely on the grounds of the good Tripadvisor reviews. It turned out to be a great choice and we would strongly recommend it as a reasonably-priced downtown option. We didn't appreciate this when we booked, but it turns out to be really close to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Museum of Contemporary Art - both of which were on our must-see lists - so the location was fantastic for us. It is adjacent to California Plaza - a lovely open space nestled between the high rise buildings with fountains, seating, lemon trees and fast food places for lunch. It's close to Civic Center and Pershing Square metro stations (although the journey back is up a very steep hill, so use the Angel's Flight funicular - only 50c a one way trip - unless you want a good workout). The hotel itself is efficient and easy to find your way around. It's largely a business hotel but very comfortable and good value for leisure travellers too. There's a (very small) outdoor pool, a gym, restaurant and bar and the hotel offers a courtesy car for short hops (up to 3 miles) on a first come first served basis. I have docked it one point for the concierge service, which could have tailored its offering a bit more. Don't get me wrong, they were helpful and eager to please, but offered a one size fits all service. They have a standard photocopied sheet of how to get to the major visitor attractions, but I don't think they had tested them - the suggested 1 and a half hours to Getty Centre was well over 2 in reality. But generally this is a great hotel.
