Italian marble, crystal chandeliers, and rich wood paneling in the lobby set the elegant tone in this award-winning hotel that beckons the business traveler. Located at the base of Nob Hill at the entrance of the Financial District on iconic California Street where cable cars roll up the steep incline and flanked by city skyscrapers, the hotel boasts ballrooms, a health center, and a popular steakhouse. While it has all the trappings of a luxury Omni hotel—spacious rooms, sheets with a high thread count, all the expected amenities—its location gears it to the business trip than the family vacation or romantic getaway.
