“Good but rooms are not soundproof”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Stayed for two nights in January while on a business trip. As succinctly as possible, it's a great location in downtown LA and a beautiful hotel. The rooms are nicely appointed, large, and featured very comfortable beds. The fitness center was a decent size and had most of the amenities required for a good workout away from home. I appreciated that Omni Select Guests get free internet. My one gripe is that I stayed in an adjoining room and the door musn't be sound proof because I found the noise level to be ridiculous for a hotel of this caliber. I heard every conversation and bodily function from my neighbors and there's really no excuse for that. My recommendation would be to stay in a non-adjoining room, if you have the option, to ensure you have a pleasant night's sleep.

We spent only one night here in March...took the train up from San Diego to see a concert (Keith Jarett, jazz pianist) at the Walt Disney. I would have liked to have stayed longer...

The staff were great--from doorman to reception to room service to housekeeping (I managed to break a glass, and they came right away and vacuumed and replaced the glass).

Our room was on the 6th floor with a bit of a view (two high-rise condo buildings across the street blocked most of the view). The room was large, with two double beds, a comfortable wing chair, a desk with desk chair and a bureau containing mini-bar, drawers, coffee service, ice bucket and glassware. Atop the bureau was a 48" (?) Panasonic TV. The furniture was walnut. The beds were fitted with thick mattresses with pill-top and wonderfully soft linens and duvet. Very comfy. The decor was pleasing--muted tans and off-whites. Nice art work on the walls. Temperature could be controlled by thermostat.

The bath was spacious; it had a glass-enclosed, nicely tiled shower as well as a separate bath tub. The vanity was contemporary in style with marble top, etc. The bath amenities were high quality. Plenty of plush towels too.

We dined at Kendall's in front of the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion and therefore did not sample the cuisine at Noe's in the hotel. We did pass by it, and it looked very inviting. However, our room service lunch (a curried chicken salad and a soup du jour) was tasty,
generously sized, and at the right temperature (hot soup, cold salad.) It was a bit pricey, but what isn't these days?

It was important to use to be close to the Walt Disney Concert Hall. We needed only to exit the hotel on the third floor onto Grand, walk a block and change, and voila! We were there!
However, a big plus it that the hotel offers a town car for shuttling to nearby venues. (When we left the next morning for Union Station, we were offered a shuttle, but there would have been a 10 minute delay, and we were running late, so we took a cab.)

WE had no complaints, enjoyed all aspects of the hotel that we sampled, and will no doubt return. (The $40 parking fee is overboard, but we did not drive there.)

Large clean and modern room. Giant bed with soft bedding, As we had never been to LA the staff helped us to plan a trip. We had a delishous evening meal in their restaurant and fine jazz music playing outside. A great place to stay on our honeymoon. Brilliant location right in the middle of the business district.We loved it.

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.

Fantastic hotel, great staff. Every single person in the hotel seemed trained to solve problems. Wonderful shower and toiletries. Beautiful lobby and comfy beds (pillows might have been better). Delicious food in Noe and at breakfast. Was attending a conference, and the Omni staff went above and beyond for us to have a wonderful meeting, even though we were competing for space with an NBA team staying in the hotel. I don't normally get my hopes up about conference hotels, but the hotel absolutely exceeded my expectations, and everyone at the conference raved about it.

The is the best of the LA hotels I have stayed in recently. The rooms are beautiful and clean and recently updated. The hotel seems to be a little quieter than some of the others in the area (in a good way) but still has the same amenities and feel. I would recommend, and will stay here again when visiting LA!

Stayed here with family for combination business / vacation. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. The front of desk staff are all very efficient and courteous. The pool / exercise center is clean and well-appointed. No hot tub or sauna, unfortunately, and the pool is outdoors so it can get cold and windy.

The milk and cookies provided every evening was a great touch, and adds to the family-friendly appeal of the hotel. We didn't eat in any of the restaurants but relied heavily on a late-night convenience store with a wide array or prepared foods. Again, a family-friendly alternative.

The hotel provides a town car service for around downtown, which can be convenient especially since parking is insanely expensive and, like most of Los Angeles, you do need to drive to get anywhere.

The hotel is right on top of MOCA and the Disney Concert Hall, which can have its drawbacks especially if a special event is booked (as it was when we were there, and the noise was deafening). Other nearby points of interest include Calle Alameda, an outdoor Mexican market, and Little Tokyo. The Staples Center is nearby as well.

The downtown core is no longer the cultural wasteland it once was, and this hotel offers a convenient and very comfortable place to get to know the area.

Room Tip: Remember that a nice view of the Disney Concert Hall can also mean a noisy night. Check MOCA and Dis...
