I spent five nights at the Omni (room 1413) for a conference: I shared the room with an 11 y.o. boy, so I can comment a bit on its suitability for children. First, let me confirm all the positive comments about the staff: the breakfast room people are wonderful; the front door staff, led by Charles, are spectacular. I had a car and regularly had to have it brought around - you could not ask for a better group of people. The breakfast buffet is (amazingly) a decent bargain at $20 [$10 for kids]: McCann's oatmeal; bacon that tastes like bacon; decent bread; drinkable coffee; fresh OJ. Far, far superior to most hotel buffets (and cheaper than lesser buffets at many comparable hotels). The room was pretty standard: comfortable size, two double beds, great view, wonderful shower (blessings upon the person who put in an old-fashioned shower head, with a hard, steady flow). We did not use the bathtub, which looked like it needed to be updated. In addition to breakfast, we had a dinner in the bar: outstanding fish and chips (and we were eating with people from Brighton, England, so they knew f&c), solid burger. The workout room is ok, the pool is a joke - nice deck for sunning, but the pool is tiny and only 3'-6" deep throughout: it's suitable as a wading pool for kids, and that's about it. The concert hall is nearby, as are many office buildings; central LA is not that great a location. We got an excellent conference rate, which made the hotel a genuine bargain for central LA. (Hence the 5 stars for value: I cannot say the same would be true at regular rates, whatever they are.) Downstairs in the plaza, you can get a decent salad for $8 and there is a sandwich place that was so mobbed we could not get in (all the places down there seem to close at 3). Nearby restaurants were ok, but there are surely better food neighborhoods in LA. All in all, 4.5 stars.
