The Story:

The city’s historic 1926 Financial Center Building on the corner of Montgomery + California opened as the luxurious Omni Hotel in downtown San Francisco in February 2002. Making a unique commitment to San Francisco and its esteemed history, Omni Hotels + Resorts embarked on a restoration project that transformed the 17-story famous office building into a 362-room luxury hotel.


Upscale boutique hotel honoring its historic roots with old-world style with a classic, traditional décor and a strong residential ambiance. To recreate the 1920s atmosphere, all guest rooms feature high ceilings with crown molding and mahogany and cherry wood furniture. Guest bathrooms include Chinese granite vanities accented with Italian marble floors and walls. 

The lobby is adorned with Italian marble, rich fabrics and Austrian crystal chandeliers creating a grand entrance for any traveler.


Located in the heart of the City in the Financial District which is a short walk to top attractions, restaurants, shopping, and the distinctive neighborhoods. The hotel is also located right on the iconic cable car line where California + Montgomery Streets meet.
