    The Omni is a great historic hotel. They have hosted several inaugural balls and have had many celebrities stay there as well. The hotel is still very beautiful and the rooms are pretty as well. The lobby has beautiful bouquets of fresh roses everywhere. The grounds are also well maintained. We stayed when the tulips were in full bloom, so I took lots of pictures. There hotel feels upscale, but the staff is warm and friendly while still professional.

    The only thing that disappointed us was when we returned from dinner with our dessert to go. We wanted to warm the bread pudding, but there was no access to a microwave. The front clerk told us the only option was to pay housekeeping $10.

    I was surprise to find out that the use of a microwave cost $10.00 per day, and internet access also cost $10.00. I think that you should charge a little more and include these items. I will not stay at this hotel again. Charlene Friedman Room 447 From 10/07/11-10/09/11.

    Feel of the hotel was comfortable but very beautiful. Decor was luxurious and tastefully done.

    There was no indoor pool or spa.

    Fabulous

    Beautiful hotel, nice comfortable rooms, excellent location, outdoor pool still open during last week of October

    Impossible to be served drinks on the terrace outside the restaurant even though it was warm and sunny. Bar staff not allowed to sell me drinks for the whole party of 3 (presumably linked to liquor laws) to take to the terrace. This is highly unusual for a hotel of this category.
