The Bad
There were a few nit picks in the reviews, but really nothing that seemed to be felt too deeply.

Occasionally guests who had to pay for Wi-Fi were annoyed at the extra fee. (It's free to guests who join the hotel's Omni Select program.)

A small number of reviewers found the hotel bar and restaurant pricey. 

There was also some mention of the valet parking being expensive, but very efficient.

It was also noted online in reviews that the hotel lacked a pool.
