Three Omni Hotels have been named to the Conde Nast Traveler 2009 Readers’ Choice List of the Top Hotels in the U.S., based on more than 25,000 reader evaluations. The awards are posted on concierge.com and featured in the magazine’s November issue.
“We are thrilled to have three properties named to the Conde Nast Traveler 2009 Readers’ Choice list,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels. “We are committed to providing guests with memorable and authentic experiences with our renowned personalized service, and the readers are clearly indicating that they appreciate our efforts.”
The Watermark Hotel & Spa in San Antonio (ranked number 14) was highlighted for its rooms decorated in “warm creams and soft auburns” and location on the city’s historic River Walk. Hand-forged iron beds, historic photographs, metal artifacts and dark furniture create “a cozy atmosphere.” Fresh seafood is flown in daily for Pesca on the River, and guests can order one of 100 different tequilas.
Located in the heart of the city’s Magnificent Mile, the Omni Chicago Hotel (ranked number 50) is one of the area’s best-loved hotels and home to Michigan Avenue’s only all-suite luxury accommodations. In January, the hotel was also included in Conde Nast Traveler’s Gold List of World’s Best Places to Stay.
The enchanting Omni La Mansion del Rio in San Antonio (ranked number 51) blends Spanish colonial architecture and European style and surrounds guests with the romance, grace and charm of a grand hacienda. The property’s “storybook setting and celebrated Las Canarias restaurant” are just a few of the reasons it’s recommended by the most discriminating travelers.
Every year since 1988, a select sample of Conde Nast Traveler readers have taken the Readers’ Choice Survey. In 2009, the questionnaire was available to all readers through a secure Web site. The final tabulations of 25,008 responses were done by Mediamark Research, Inc. of New York City.
