Hidden Gem

We picked this hotel primarily for the location and were subsequently impressed with how nice it was and how relatively inexpensive it was compared to other hotels in the area. I would call it the hidden gem in downtown Austin. Will book again!

Nice hotel, nothing special!

Not a fan of atrium style hotels, they tend to be loud and lacking in natural light. I did however ask to be switched to a room with a view of the city and they did so.

Business Trip in Austin

I recently stayed at the Omni in downtown Austin on the concierge level and it was a great experience. Breakfast was delicious and they had everything from local fare to fruit and bagels and cereal. Afternoon snacks and cocktails were a great way to end the day. The gym at this location is a little small but other than that, nothing to complain about.

Fantastic Base to Explore The City!!!!

Very easy to find, stylish, impressive appearance, great location and helpful/friendly staff - BRILLIANT!!! Room (12th Floor, great view of the City) really comfortable and maintained spotlessly clean throughout our 7 day stay. Chose not to eat there as we were busy exploring/partying but always looked great - bar very welcoming. All staff met very courteous, informative and friendly. Rooftop pool area cool and stylish - highly recommended. Thanks OMNI!!!!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Although hotel ideally located for the 6th Street Entertainment Area, it gets CRAZY busy at weekends. Try RAINEY St. instead - just a few blocks into S. Congress area. Very cool and unique places, excellent.

Old dirty gross overpriced

Plumbing was so loud in our room we couldn't sleep because everytime someone in an adjacent room used the water, it sounded like a freight train driving through the walls. No vent fan in restroom; low ceiling. Like taking a shower in a closet- forget putting on makeup in that lighting! Nasty carpet throughout hotel. Needs replacing asap! I wouldn't dare walk barefoot on it. Hallways are unairconditioned! Really?? Nasty dingy pool! I was so excited about the roof top pool until I got there- of which I wouldn't get in. Full of urine and sunscreen I suppose. Joke of a bar by pool- poor selection and it was $45 for 5 cans of beer!!! There's a $6.30 open container fee? Wt heck is that? Oh and of course, it's $30 to valet or $20/night for self parking in their parking garage. WE WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN!!
