The Omni San Diego is your typical high end Omni Hotel. Fantastic location, great staff, and great rooms.
Arrival at the Omni is what you would expect, you're greeted by an enthusiastic and friendly doorman. The lobby at the hotel is impressive, with high end woods and stone greeting you as you approach the check-in counter. The staff at the front desk are extremely friendly and helpful. I was immediately offered a cold bottle of water by the other front desk staff while my employee processed my check-in information.
The elevator bank is a short walk off the main lobby and my room was located diagonally from the elevator bank on the 16th floor. This had me concerned at first. I entered my room and found that it was very large, with a large bathroom. I had a King size bed in my room, with ample desk space and a large flat screen TV. I never once heard the elevator, or the alert sound for the elevator during my stay. The hotel is very quiet, and the rooms are sturdy and keep out most noise.
The bathroom is tiled with a large, lighted mirror, and a tub/shower combo. The water was always warm and no issues with drainage. The only negative in the bathroom would be that there was a film of dust on the glass shelving on the sides of the mirror.
The fitness room in the Omni was lacking, very small with not a lot of free weights. Compared to the fitness room and spin studio at the Marriott Marquis and Marina, the Omni is sorely lacking.
The pool complex at the Omni is great, with a nicely heated pool. The small area beside the pool was closed off for construction. It wasn't entirely clear what that are would be used for, but it looked like it had a lot of potential.
The Omni has a sky bridge to Petco Park, which was obviously only open when there is a game, but it looked like a pretty cool option if you have tickets and are staying at the hotel.
The area around the Omni is second to none. The hotel is located just steps from the beginning of the Gaslamp District of San Diego. This area is populated with fantastic restaurants and bars. If you can't find something to do here, you won't find anything to do anywhere.
The location also puts you in good position to run outside if that's your thing. A sky bridge to the waterfront allows you to run along the boardwalk area of San Diego, affording you a great view of Coronado Bay as you run.
I would definitely suggest the Omni as an option to stay when you visit San Diego. I would call one of the Top 5 hotels in San Diego.
