    Great Service & A Comfortable Stay

    by

    The service at the hotel was outstanding and comfortable. It is what you would expect from a luxury hotel. My only quibble is that the room felt a bit sparse and slightly cheap. Some molding was peeling from the wall, for example. On the whole, it was a great experience.

    Unique Quality: This hotel is just down the street from Walt Disney Concert Hall, so it is a breeze to catch an LA Phil performance. It's also very close to the LA Opera and the Mark Taper Forum.

    Directions: Downtown - Near the Civic Center area.

    Great Value But.....

    by

    We stayed here for 4 nights. It was the first stop on our trip. The hotel itself was great. The rooms were big and comfortable. The service was fine. The breakfast was 1 of the best we've had in a hotel. The price was less than we expected to pay for a hotel like this. But there was a problem. Its in downtown LA.

    Having never been to LA before we actually thought this would be a good thing. It wasnt the best. The Omni seemed to be right on the edge of downtown and trashville. Once the sun went down everyone disappeared because it was in the business district and all the homeless came out.

    We didnt realise this and headed to Long Beach on the trains at night. Now there was a mistake. We didnt feel safe at all on the trip back and once we stepped outside of the station we knew this wasnt a place to be at night. Shady characters everywhere. People in dumpsters. People obviously not well off cruising the streets. We couldnt get back to the hotel quick enough.

    Of course this isnt the hotels fault. The hotel itself is great. But if we ever go back to LA we wont be staying in the downtown area. We would suggest that if you are there as tourists then you should look into staying in another area. Maybe closer to Hollywood.

Great one week stay at Omni L.A.

by TripAdvisor Member yindw

I was in L.A. in March 2005 for a one-week convention and stayed at the Omni.

Reservation and check-in: Booked the room through AAA, $85 per night. Because of flight delays I arrived at 3 a.m. in the morning. Prompt check-in. Don't forget to pick up an apple at the front desk every day!

Room description: End of the hall on the 10th floor. Large floor-to-ceiling window, could be opened for fresh air; overlooked the front of the hotel and Olive Street. The room had king-size bed, small desk with lamp, TV, minibar fridge, coffee maker. Bathroom had tub only (my colleague's room had a bathroom with both tub and shower stall), well stocked with towels and a bathrobe, a swivelling make-up/shaving mirror was mounted on the wall, which was nice to have. Hair blow dryer provided. Telephones on nightstand and in bathroom. Iron and ironing board in closet. Signal for the complementary wireless connection was very good, but the DNS server was spotty and could have rendered the wireless service useless for a layperson. I had to bypass the hotel's DNS server and use the one at my university so that I could use the Internet normally. Housekeeping provided turndown service (pillow fluffing, next day's forecast, ice, and chocolates) around 6:30 p.m. Couldn't find a telephone book in the room. Bottled water provided, but costs $6.75 plus restocking fee per pop. L.A. Times and USA Today delivered to room in the morning.

Dining: Had breakfast only once at the hotel's cafe on the third floor. Price is a bit expensive ($17 for full breakfast buffet, I had a big omlette for about $12, I think). Did not eat at the hotel's Noe Restaurant. There are other places to eat nearby the hotel, but most are closed by the evening except the California Pizza Kitchen in the Wells Fargo Center on Grand Ave between 3rd St and 4th St behind the hotel, which stays open until 9 or 10 at night. Another option for dining is the Westin Bonaventure, which is three to four blocks away and has a greater selection of restaurants and fastfood outlets--just don't get lost in the Westin.

Transportation: I did not have a car, so can't say anything about the parking. Took the DASH bus on Grand Ave, south bound with one transfer at 5th St to go to the Convention Center; bus fare is only 25 cents! The DASH buses run only during the day, and service north to Little Tokyo, Chinatown, and south to Exposition Park (USC, Olympic Colesium, Science Center, Rose Garden). Walking from the Omni to the Convention Center West Hall/Staples Center took me 30 minutes; taxi ride for the same costs $8. I did not make use of the hotel's Town Car service. On the evening that I left, I asked the front desk to make a reservation for me with SuperShuttle (independent of Omni) to go to LAX. The shuttle was 30 minutes late, and the front desk staff called their dispatcher on my behalf to find out where the driver was.

Around the hotel: Felt safe walking in the vicinity of the hotel at night. The Watercourt plaza next to the hotel offers a variety of restaurants and businesses, including the postal service. There is a graphics shop just around the corner of the hotel (printing, binding, etc.), saving a trip to Kinko's seven blocks away. The hotel's business center offers only basic laser printing and fax services, and a fee is charged for these. Museum of Contemporary Art is right next door to the hotel (regrettably I could not understand or appreciate the artwork that was on display).

Celebrity sighting: Eric Morlon Bishop, aka Jamie Foxx.

Overall I had a great stay at the Omni Los Angeles, and would return again.

This is pianoman Bob, he was playing songs on request every evening in the Omni Hotel. He was doing a nice job. He has a own website on the internet. The address is: www. pianomanbob.com

Beautiful View of California Plaza

by TripAdvisor Member Criticaltraveller

Ask for a corner room to enjoy the view of California Plaza and the Hollywood sign in the distance. Rooms are oversized as is the bathroom. Walking distance to food shops, post office and convenience stores make this a better location than most downtown LA hotels. To the critics of this Omni I say - try staying one night at the Bonaventure before being critical! The Omni LA is very very good......

All at the Omni

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Omni LA Hotel has it all. The hotel is a short walk to the Museum of Contemporary Art which is located in the same complex - California Plaza. A block farther away is the new Disney Concert Hall. Both federal and state courthouses are nearby and a handy hotel area map highlights the local buildings making it easier to get around.. One of the nicest features at the hotel is the use of a Lincoln Town Car and driver o transport guests anywhere within a three mile radius of the hotel - no worries about being lost and a return to the hotel is only a phone call away. I used it repeatedly and was very pleased at this first come/first served service. Within the hotel is a fabulous restaurant - Noe - which describes itself as Progressive American with a Japanese sensibility toward food preparation. The hotel's rooms are very nice with a good size working desk for business and a comfy bed and chair. My oversized bathroom had both a tub and a separate shower in case you are traveling with someone and both need to get ready at the same time. I have stayed at the Omni many times - even back when it as an InterContinental. Omni is better toiday than it has ever been. The only "cheap" aspect of it is the use of 19 inch televisions in the guest rooms.

Loved the Omni

by A TripAdvisor Member

Stayed her for 3 nights on the 15th October 04 after travelling round all of California, Nevada and Arizona. Could not fault the Hotel at all. the Valet parking was a little on the high price, but if you ask nicley and flutter your eye lashes, they may reduce this for you?? Maybwe we were just lucky. The room was amazing and the bathroom was lovely. espically to have a separate bath and shower. Room service was quick and the Bar Staff were lovely. Loved it here and looking again to return.

Nice hotel!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. Free courtesy car for hotel guests (free rides within 3 miles from/to the hotel). Breakfast was little expensive, but had a good selection of food. Spacious room with nice view on Olive Street. Large bathroom with shower and bathtub. Just one recommandation. Never - never have the hotel concierge book a sightseeing tour for you!!! All tours are doublepriced!

Great Hotel - Not a lot around it to do on weekend....

by TripAdvisor Member lilimadsn

I loved this hotel. The staff was very friendly and overly helpful.
The parking was steep @24$a day. The hotel is in downtown and hard to find if not familiar w/the area. Downtown is shut down on weekend. We had a hard time finding much to do around it. But it was a steal @$50 a night on priceline. Ask for a corner room - they are spectacular. Highly recommend.
