Fodor's Expert Review Omni San Francisco Hotel

500 California St., San Francisco, California 94104, USA See on Map

Step into this 1926 redbrick-and-stone building, a former bank, and immediately feel transported to another era. This luxe Financial District property features plenty of historical flavor with chandeliers, marble staircases, and mahogany paneling. An upscale steakhouse, state-of-the-art fitness center, and family-centric perks make this a favorite for business or leisure travelers.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Sugar fairies deliver cookies and milk to the children in the evenings, and the kids' club is one of the best in town.

room

Sophisticated guest rooms are graced with 9-foot-high ceilings and crown moldings. San Francisco-themed photographs and carved-mahogany furniture add additional style. Daylight floods the corner suites, each of which has six tall windows.

Sliding glass doors open to reveal bathrooms with marble floors and green-and-black granite basins. Suites feature dual showerheads in oversized showers.

lobby

Glittering crystal chandeliers, dark mahogany paneling, and an iron-and-marble staircase hark back to an old-fashioned gentility. The staff goes beyond the call of duty to provide comfort for guests, who take advantage of the spacious lobby to host business meetings and relax with the newspaper.

spa

Arrange an in-room massage with the fitness center staff.

gym

The large state-of-the-art fitness center features cardio machines, free weights, and fitness kits. Complimentary fruit and water are available. The fitness center is open 24-hours a day.

dining

Bob's Steak and Chop House, which is more elegant than the name implies, is off the lobby. Business lunches typically fill the dining room, with the Financial District crowd enjoying prime cuts of steak paired with butter-soaked veggies. Breakfasts boast hearty servings of benedicts or griddle fare. Dinners feature prime rib, broiled salmon, and the crowd-pleasing Chophouse salad.

drinking

Bob's Bar serves smaller bar bites like pork belly tacos and features a massive selection of spirits and wine.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The hotel offers pricey valet or self-parking. Since the cable car and Muni buses stop out front, most take advantage of San Francisco's public transportation system. Walkers will appreciate the proximity to Chinatown, Embarcadero, Union Square, and SoMa. Hop on Muni or BART trains at Montgomery Street Station (6-minute walk) to access the San Francisco and Oakland airports, as well as outer neighborhoods like the Mission, Sunset, and the beaches.

Restaurants

A favorite for the business crowd, Michael Mina (4-minute walk) whips up a decadent lobster pot pie that will have you licking your lips for days. Tyler Florence's homage to British pub fare lures the masses to Wayfare Tavern (2-minute walk) for fried chicken and burgers.

Bars

Enjoy a glass of upmarket Cabernet at the Barrel Room (3-minute walk). Tucked away from the main drag, grab a bottle of Chardonnay and play bocce ball at the Hidden Vine (6-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

Class, style and attentive service lure families and leisure travelers to this Financial District property.
