Re: SF Convention: Response from the Omni. SF.

It's fairly obvious what's going on. With the deep discounters and bidding sites, hotels like the Onmi are moving their "low" prices around to various sites so nobody can make a deep run at them for the discounted price. When I bid on Hotwire I got the Onmi for $215 a night. When I next ch...

My count has six couples and that is not including me. And I should not be included so six rooms is it for now.

Re: SF Convention: Response from the Omni. SF.

Don't include me as I booked the Omni through Hotwire to see the hotel and the rate. I agree that the La Meridien is a great price and a nice hotel. Go for it.

I was surprised how ridiculous the price was.

I guess they rethought their position overnight. Still higher than I got it on Hotwire. Good Morning William, I hope you are having a nice day.

I am trying to get a group rate at the Omni. Would the following people tell me: 1. If they are interested in the Omni, 2. Their dates of arrival and departure. The rate has not been set but I believe to be in the low $200s from my conversation with the hotel. Danny + Danielle Tim + 1 hm$ + Lisa + 1...

Re: SF Hotel ?

I would like to help. What I need is, for those who are coming and want a hotel, tell me the dates of your stay. The Omni won't negotiate until I have at least 10 rooms to book and we don't have that. Mahalo to the five friends who have responded.

Re: SF Hotel ?

I just booked at the Omni. I did it through Hotwire which is a blind bind. Two nights at $207 a night with fees it comes to $520 for two nights. This was more expensive than Trivago.com but I was gambling to see if I could get the Hotel Vitale (the only Hotwire 4.5 hotels in the FD were Omni or Vita...

Re: SF Hotel ?

I have approached the Omni about a group rate. I tend to agree with everyone that the Palace rate is an error. It is a good hotel but not at its normal rate.

The Griffon is the closest to the event but as you know, you get what you pay for. It is a great location for a long morning walk along the bay, very close to the Ferry Building. The Omni is over by the BofA Building on California ST. and about 8 or 9 blocks. I've heard nice things about it. Price i...

Is there a hotel that most people are staying at or is it everybody do your own thing and will meet somewhere when we're settled? Sorry for my ignorance.

St. Innocent and Cristom will be in Totality at 10:10 am or so. I have rented a place up by Penner Ash and Bergstrom out of Newberg. ...

Isn't that true for every great vintage?

BTW Tom, Loxton's offering this year were great, especially the chard, syrahs and the pioneer blend.

I loved the 82 Sociando. As I recall, it cost about $7.00 in 1984. I bought 6. If I'd only knew how wonderful it would become later in life, I would have bought more. But I was young to wine. Though in the first 10 years,it was a beast. Once it calmed down, for me it was a 10 on a 10 scale. Happy Ne...
