My husband and I stayed at the CNN Center Omni Hotel for a quick overnight getaway, and were left feeling uncertain about the entire setup. It seems they cater well to large business groups during daytime working hours, because when we arrived that afternoon there were plenty of shops, cafes, and vending machines available for snacks and drinks. After dinner, the entire hotel was much like a ghost town, and even the large soda vending machines were padlocked, rather than allowing for cash to be inserted like most vending machines. Simple things like access to bottled drinks were missing, but you could get your shoes shined...odd. Would recommend the attached restaurant McCormick & Schmick, as well as the CNN Center food court for snacks and fast food. Beware of pricey valet-only parking and expensive wi-fi as additional costs to your stay.
