Omni San Diego Hotel

Omni San Diego Hotel 720x360Greetings! If you’re following me and my wife on social media (our handles are listed at the bottom), then you know that we and our son Jack, spent a long weekend in San Diego (two-hour drive from L.A.). I was speaking at the San Diego Travel Show on Saturday so we made a long weekend out of it. The first two nights we spent at the Omni San Diego Hotel, which was ideally located right across the street (and train tracks) from the San Diego Convention Center and next to the ballpark.

When we first checked in, the clerk wasn’t very friendly and was taken aback that Natalie didn’t want a room on the 13th floor. I was taken aback that a hotel still names a floor 13 and even more so that the guy gave us a bit of attitude. I’m pretty sure that almost all hotels and cruise ships that I’ve been in skip over that inauspicious number.

The bad news is that we could hear the Hard Rock Hotel’s nightclub music thumping until 2:30am.

Dustin moved us to room 2033 on the 20th floor (out of 21) to a corner room with the best view of Petco Field where the San Diego Padres play. I just wished the Padres were playing since I could watch the game from my room. The only thing I didn’t like was that the water pressure in this room wasn’t nearly as good as the sixth floor but the view and sounds were way better.

I really like downtown San Diego, especially for conferences since most of the hotels are within walking distance to the convention center and there are great restaurants all around. We had a fantastic Italian meal at Salvucci’s, which was just two blocks from the Omni on J Street. The one thing I don’t like about San Diego are all the homeless people but I can’t blame them for living there since it would probably be my top pick within the continental U.S., too.
