Reviews - Omni Chicago Hotel

8/10
Gracious, elegant, but too dark

The rooms are all suites, so I had two small rooms, with a cosy feel + a separate door that opens onto another room. since I travelled with my teenage son on this trip, it was ideal for us. The rooms were well-appointed. Two flaws occurred: the decor was mostly chocolate brown and gold--which was elegant, but dark. The second flaw was the bathroom door could not shut entirely.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Omni Chicago Hotel

Great place to stay!

from JeniCoffey
My husband and I stayed at the Omni for our honeymoon (Sept. 16 - 19) The staff was very friendly, and extra helpful. The hotel was in an excellent location, and well accomodated. The rooms were really nicely furnished, spacious (which is hard to find in Chicago), and had excellent views of Michigan Ave., the John Hancock Bldg., and beyond (if you stay high up, which I would recommend). The only thing I didn't like was that the tv's (there were two in our room) were small. They were only 20" - very small complaint in consideration.

When we arrived, we told them it was our honeymoon. We left for dinner, and when we returned there was a bottle of champagne, choc. covered strawberries, and truffles waiting for us. It was a really nice touch.

I would definately stay again, and would recommend anyone else to stay there as well.

One thing I would tell guests to beware of, the bottled water in the Honor Bar is $8.37 per 1 liter bottle. No joke! So bring your own, b/c Chicago's water is nasty.

Cheers!

Weekend Getaway at the Omni

from A TripAdvisor Member
My mother-in-law, sister-in-law and husband's aunt and I all flew to Chicago in April for a shopping/ weekend getaway and stayed in the Omni. We had the best time that weekend and I can say staying at the Omni just added to the relaxing, wonderful weekend. It's so clean, beautiful and conveniently located to where you have access to the malls, shopping, resteraunts, etc. I loved Chicago and LOVED the Omni. I hope to stay there again, this time with my husband!

s Guests SHOULD Stay Here!

from pjmcjm
Three friends and I stayed at the Omni on August 31, 2004 when we flew to Chicago to go the Oprah Winfrey Show. Everyone wanted to stay in this hotel because Oprah's guests stay there. I was a little concerned about some of the negative reviews, but this is actually a WONDERFUL place to stay...especially for shopping on North Michigan Avenue!! Great views of Chicago and a perfect location! The suite is very nice. The decor is much better than at many hotels...wingback chairs, bookcases with real books. The bathroom is larger than average with a hair dryer and plenty of shampoos, soap, lotions etc. There is an expensive but well-stocked basket of goodies (we didn't eat any!). We realized in the morning that we didn't have a coffee maker, and one was brought up as soon as we requested it. The people at the front desk were pleasant. The beds are comfortable, and there is an iron and ironing board in the closet. You DO have to take two elevators, but that really isn't such a big deal. You have to enter the suite through a short hallway that seems to be wasted space, but there was virtually no noise ever in our suite. We did not try the restaurant or room service so can't vouch for the food. There are TONS of fabulous places to eat in Chicago (including a Starbucks right around the corner for breakfast), so I wouldn't have wanted to eat at the hotel anyway. We had a AAA rate of about $170 per night which I thought was a very good value for the large suite. I DEFINITELY would stay there again. We have been in Chicago many times before, and there just isn't a better location than the Omni!

Great Location, Excellent Service

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife, four children, and I decided to take a last minute trip to downtown Chicago. We booked the day we arrived.

I was suspicious of the hotel because the rate was better than anything I was quoted by comparable hotels, and they had rooms available at the last minute on a weekday, which I have found to be rare in this location. We were pleasantly surprised all around.

The hotel provides a courtesy car for drop-offs. The driver, Scott, was courteous and knowledgeable about the city. The view of Michigan Avenue was a plus. We will stay there again.

Had a great time

from A TripAdvisor Member
We went there the spring of 04 and had a Wonderful time. From the minute we got there we were treated wonderfully. The only bad thing is when you have a day of shopping you have to get onto 2 different elevators just to get up to your room. It was nice with a Child due to the seperate bedroom area. She could go to bed earlier and I could stay up later and not feel I was keeping her awake. One other thing that was negative is check the experation dates on things in the inroom snack bar. A few of our things had expired over a year earlier. But besides that it was great . :-)

Great location and service!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Omni Chicago is at the heart Chicago’s tourist area!! It is close to everything!! The hotel is at a walking distance from Navy Pier and John Hancock Building and just a few blocks from the water front. It is at the heart of the Magnificent Mile for those interested in shopping. Lots of great restaurants around. The staff and management service was great!! The room was spacious and neatly clean. I would definitely would stay there again.

s warning

from A TripAdvisor Member
I want to issue a travel-warning to folks who might sign up for the weekend deal they offer through travelzoo from time to time:
The deal says "free breakfast" included in the price. However, what they don't tell you, is that the breakfast consists of a cup of coffee and a bisquit (or two)! Moreover, you need to ask for these "tickets" at the lobby when you check in - they won't give them to you automatically!
We stayed there over Christmas '03, and we, and I noticed several guests who bought the same package, had a rather unpleasant experience!
The hotel is nice though, if you don't consider their lousy service!

Great Stay at Omni Chicago

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed from June 4-8. Very clean and quiet. Good room service. Attentive staff. Great location. Very nice stay!

OK room, great service

from Nofibgb
My wife and I recently stayed at the Omni over the weekend on Michigan Ave. and I'd have to say that I was little underwhelmed by the room. It was on the small side for a suite and definitely wasn't as nice as the Westin we stayed at the last time we were in the city. I was surprised to see that the carpet had stains and was tearing and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been updated in quite some time.
I will have to say the the staff is very friendly and helpful but I think you can get nicer rooms for this price range.

not bad

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stay at hotles in the city occasionally. The Omni (where guests of the Ophra Winfrey show stay) is pretty nice. Decent suite sized rooms, but the TVs are way too small. Great location and views of Michigan avenue. Room service was pretty good, too. We got the room in the middle of the week for $100 via hotels.com. I thought it was a good deal.

Top Local Tips for Chicago

Beware of 'Assistance' with Luggage When Taking Cabs from the Train Stations Please be aware that there are many people that will offer to 'assist' you with your luggage from the train stations. Keep in mind that these people are not employees of the train station, taxi companies, or anyone else. They are just looking to get a tip. We had one take our bags from our hands, throw it in the trunk of the taxi, and then ask for a tip. When we told him we had no cash, he called us a nasty name starting with a 'B'.

For a parody of British decor... Two blocks away from the Omni is "RL," a restaurant attached to the Ralph Lauren store. If you have ever dined at Rules in London, you will know the inspiration for RL. A parody of a parody! But, the food is good and the service attentive but not cloying. If you like your martinis dry and your pretensions on parade, this is a great place!

Remember, museum memberships are usually reciprocal If you belong to an art museum or a science museum in your hometown, bring your membership card. Many of the Chicago museums offer reciprocal benefits if you show your membership card. We saved on admission to MSI and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
