I agonised for weeks over choosing a hotel in San Francisco. Dismissed the Omni originally as the rooms looked a bit dark and old fashioned. Two days before we travelled I finally chose a different hotel, but at the last minute changed my mind and booked the Omni on the basis of the positive vibe you get from all the TA reviews. It was a seriously good decision, and the most enjoyable experience of the five places we stayed on this trip.
Booked a Signature room on a high floor and it was better than I expected - not too dark at all. Felt spacious and bathroom was nice, with very good shower. But as everyone has said, the service really does make a differece - you feel so welcome, everyone is very helpful and every single employee anywhere gives you a friendly smile and hello when you see them. It really does make a difference to the enjoyment of your stay.
Definetley join the loyalty programme before you book - free wi-fi and also complimentary coffee and tea in the morning - always delivered exactly at the time requested and the best tea I had in the USA (it actually had some flavour!).
Oh - and the location is good as well. Nice and quiet over the weekend in the Financial District, but very close to Union Square for shopping, China Town, Little Italy, Embacadero - no shortage of places to eat close by.
