The Omni has put together a special package for us. Do not use the Omni's Passkey Online reservation system anymore. Please contact them directly for reservations, cancellations or changes please call 1-800-843-6664. You may still sign up for your room in the KWAR room block. You get a terrific price break on the room. The cost is the same for 1 to 4 persons staying in the room. The room price and block reservation is also good for several days before and after KWAR if you also stay for KWAR.
