IRVING, TX (August 26, 2009) — Three Omni Hotels have earned high rankings in Travel + Leisure’s annual 2009 World’s Best Hotels for Families list, based on reader evaluations collected in Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Awards” survey. The awards are posted on , and will be featured in the September issue.*

“We are honored to have three properties named to the list of World’s Best Hotels for Families by the readers of Travel + Leisure,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels. “We are committed to making family travel a genuinely fun and memorable experience from our Omni Sensational Kids program to the specially-designed Kids’ Suites to warm cookies and milk before bed.”

For families, the iconic Omni Sensational Kids program, available at all Omni properties, provides the youngest adventurers with special treatment beginning with their very own backpack filled with entertaining items such as a flashlight, mini-disc launcher, Twizzlers, a plant-able bookmark and more at check-in along with cookies and milk delivered to the guest room before bedtime on the first night. 

The Omni La Mansion in San Antonio, TX (ranked number two) recently unveiled a SeaWorld partnership, where guests can purchase tickets to the water park directly through the concierge, bypassing long lines at the popular attraction. 

Travel + Leisure highlighted the Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas near Dallas, TX (ranked number nine) for its “poolside cabanas and a tricked-out kids’ suite.” Omni’s Mokara Salon & Spa offers treatments in poolside cabanas for “road-weary parents,” and a treatment menu including a luxurious Chardonnay sugar scrub.

The Omni Chicago Hotel (ranked number 29), described by Travel + Leisure as a “Magnificent Mile mainstay that pulls out all the stops for kids,” offers the American Girl Doll package that includes a doll bed, sundaes on arrival and entry into a drawing for an American Girl doll and personal shopper at the flagship store.

In July 2009, Six Omni Hotels earned high rankings in Travel + Leisure’s annual 2009 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey in the Large City Hotels in the Continental U.S. and Canada category and the Small City Hotels in the Continental U.S. and Canada category; the Omni La Mansion in San Antonio, TX; the Omni Mandalay Hotel (near Dallas, TX); the Omni Chicago Hotel; the Hotel Omni Mont-Royal in Montreal, Canada, the Omni San Francisco Hotel and the Watermark Hotel & Spa in San Antonio, TX (also owned by Omni Hotels).
