This former Omni hotel is now independently operated and dedicated to business travelers, but weekend rates can be stellar for bargain-hunting vacationers. The taupe-toned rooms are business-hotel average; the best ones have city views or overlook the swimming pool. The executive-level rooms and suites feature extras like fax machines, plush bathrobes, extra towels, and top-floor views -- plus access to the Executive Lounge, which offers free continental breakfast, all-day beverages, and hors d'oeuvres at cocktail hour. The 16-story hotel is centrally located in the heart of Downtown shopping, theater, and dining. Five restaurants and bars on-site include an American grill, an upscale Korean barbecue, an Italian trattoria, Japanese cuisine, a tropical lounge in the Trader Vic's vein, and a coffee bar featuring Starbucks brew. I prefer the Omni , but this hotel is a fine choice if you can snare a good rate.
