You can do better – It's okay... but in my opinion, they nickel and dime you to death. The "free parking" is about .2 miles from the front desk with little or no sinage to assist you on where to park, how to access the hotel, etc. If you want to park in sight of the front entrance, it's $14.00/night. Valet parking is $26.00/night. The facility is okay and clean but that is to be expected for $140/night (and on a Friday night when hotel prices usually drop). The people that work there were nice. I won't go back - there are too many other places to stay that are set up better than that for less money and just as nice or nicer. It's no Ritz C.
Great Hotel BUT... – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
Saturday Night – (review appropriate for ages 25+)
If you're looking for a good place to go for drinks after a date or dinner, this is it.
Don't waste your time at the floor level bar, go down the elevator to the basement bar (I forget what its called).
The reason Saturday night is good is because thats when they have weddings. Think about it, how much fun is it to hang out with people after a wedding! Then, if its not full, its private so you can have some alone time. It can go either way, but I think you win, either way.
By far the best... – the best upscale hotel in houston, we've been to derek, zaza, this one is the best! the derek has its points, the zaza theirs but the omni is by far the best of all categories! thank you for the upgrade to the suite for my husbands birthday---at no charge!
Had LOTS of Fun on Saturday Night – Some friends and I went this past saturday night (8/23/08) after a birthday dinner and had a GREAT time.
Loved that it is secluded in the omni hotel and had that best kept secret feel. The dance floor is huge and there were tons of people dancing. We really got our dance on. The DJ was wonderful and played a good mix of music. The cubbies (seating) looked comfy and romantic but were all reserved for different parties, but we found some bar stools along side the dance floor and it was a good spot to be.
Drink prices are decent about $6 for a cranberry and vodka...and VERY STRONG...so that was a good point for us :-)
I know I will definitely be back here on a saturday and maybe even just a during the week happy hour.
Oh...did I meantion that I am a VERY picky person....so that means this place is the BEST! I know sometimes it is hard to tell if a review is from a real person....so this is 100% real
The elegant decor, top-notch service and expansive grounds make this upscale Post Oak area one of Houston's finest. – The Scene
This highly rated, high-rise luxury hotel is located in the fashionable Post Oak/Galleria district, on well-kept grounds just minutes from downtown. You won't find many places in Houston, if any, with more attractive accommodations. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you will notice elegant appointments, lush vegetation, a skylight and Asian accents.
With views of the pool and city skyline, guest rooms and suites offer a range of above-standard amenities, from plush terry cloth robes and fully stocked refreshment centers to marble bathrooms, pullout sofas and large garden tubs. Proving that luxury isn't all a guest needs and that innovation can be liberating, the hotel also offers Get Fit Guest Rooms, equipped with a portable treadmill, Get Fit Kit and health snacks.
FANTASTIC, BEAUTIFUL and WELL WORTH YOUR MONEY!! – AWESOME!!! Omni Houston is FANTASTIC!!! We have stayed ay NUMEROUS Houston hotels and the OMNI beats them ALL, hands down!! Not only the OMNI in Houston but we have stayed at The Omni Berkshire Place in New York and The Omni Severin in Indianapolis...and ALL Omni Hotels are WONDERFUL!! From cleanliness to friendliness...the staff will treat you like royalty! Make sure if you are staying at the Omni you join the "select guest" program for FREE..you can even join online before you ever even stay ay The Omni...They will give you a room service card at check-in and it is for FREE morning beverage service!!! FREE beverages of your choice brought to your room by room-service at the morning time of your choice!!! You can also have express check-in and the more you stay the more perks you get...The Omni Houston is a little pricey but WELL WORTH it!!! In the spring and summer the hotel has specials for the weekend so go online and look for yourself!!! Can't beat $129 plus tax per night which INCLUDES breakfast for 2 downstairs and the breakfast is GREAT!!! AND don't forget the FREE beverage service by room service IF you sign up for "select guest program" which is ALSO FREE!!! The outdoor pools (one heated/one not heated) are GORGEOUS as is the ENTIRE outside setting and inside lobby and restaurants!! Noe' is the restaurant with CHEF ROBERT GADSBY and the 6 course "tasting" menu is DELICIOUS!!! If you try the Omni just ONE time you will be hooked!! I ALWAYS recommend the Omni to everyone I know!
Great Hotel at a great price – We usually stay at the Houstonian down the street, but the Omni had a better price for 3 nights. We hung out by the pool, had lunch and then had drinks at the Black Swan downstairs. It's a great retreat from the busy city and the employees are very helpful. Oh, and the beds were incredibly comfortable! We didn't want to get out of bed! All in all, the best hotel at the best price in the galleria area.
cool place to chill – I was overall pleased with the quality of the hotel. There is a cool club in the basement floor where alot of young ppl hang out on weekend nights. Everything was clean and functional here. I think they also offer free wireless internet access in all the rooms.
Stinky Pool & Attitudes – I just got back from my stay at the Omni, and can't say I was too impressed. Sure the lobby was pretty, but the lady behind the front desk was snobby and unpleasant. I guess when you buy a discounted rate at expedia.com you don't matter too much. The hotel promotes itself to the recreation crowd by boosting their 2 pools. The pools are small, and are made very uncomfortable by the incredible stink that blows over from the swan pawn. The parking situation could use some improvement, I did not appreciate the hike from the overflow parking lot.
