Area: Downtown/Coronado

Omni's skybridge connection to Padres' Petco Park creates a convenient accommodation for visiting major league baseball teams and their fans. Situated on the Gaslamp Quarter's fringe and across the street from the Convention Center, the Omni also serves as a wonderful home base for Joe and Jane business/leisure travelers.

Omni's 511 rooms are magic, cleverly drawing in the outdoors with a contemporary, zen-like style. Floor to ceiling windows offer marvelous city and bay views, and carpeting mimicking the ocean's grooved sand bottom indulges fancy footing. Open and airy baths hint of South Beach with an art deco flair, but some may wish for a little more counter space. Tropical plants add a welcome dash of green, and zzz's come easy on Omni's premium pillow top bedding with 320 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets.

Omni smacks a "triple" with a 6th floor fitness facility that should satisfy most athletic-minded travelers. Inside, guests will find a decent assortment of machines. The 24-hour modern sweat room's gray floors and plain walls are somewhat drab. And ejected from Omni's exercise game are upright bikes and step machines. But plenty of other endurance alternatives are in the dugout and brighten the room. Most iron-pumpers should get by on the combination of dumbbells and stack-loaded machines, but dedicated free-weight lifters may find the strength selection a little "light." This is really splitting hairs in our opinion, however. If you do need more, Fit Athletic Club is super convenient (about 3 blocks away) and offers an array of cardio, strength and class options ($15/day admission with your hotel room key).

Omni's outdoor pool is pure leisure, so our aquatic friends and others yearning for a gym with more free-weight equipment  should look to Broadway Athletic & Swim Club. Before you think about BA&SC, we strongly recommend considering driving across the bridge to Coronado's Community and Aqautics Center. It's the best lap pool in North America. Play ball!
