So Close to Perfect, I'd Call It Perfect

My experience was excellent at the Omni in Downtown Austin. The only things that really bothered me were (a) the beds were too soft for me (but this is a personal preference and I know for sure no one else would ever say something like that), and (b), while I am a member of their rewards program and so I get a complementary morning beverage each morning, one morning they gave me coffee instead of tea. Honestly, it was the only day it happened out of 7 days there, and the coffee is not too bad for those who want coffee (translation: I did not bother to complain since I was in hurry and it is not like the coffee was bad anyway). Otherwise, I got the drink I wanted every morning. So all good. It is definitely worth staying here since 6th street is literally a 1-2 minute walk (tops; and that is if you are walking super slow...). Great service overall.

Nice but Average

Very nice location but very average in most other regards. Had problem accessing room in the middle of the night and took hotel staff way too long to address the problem. They then promised to comp breakfast but made no note of it and I was charged for room service the next morning. By that time, I was too tired to fight any longer. Hope your stay is better.

Nice experience in Austin

The location and comfort of the hotel was outstanding. Delicious food in the restaurant. Just a little problem with Hotel reparations, but all of them were on ours that didn't affect their guests.

Great place to stay

Great place to stay. I was just there for a vacation of hanging out listening to the tons of great live music. Location is pretty excellent [cab fares rack up quick, and the pedicabs run only on the weekend]. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The stainless pool on the roof was nice, but kind of wish they did "more" with it. Room was tidy, the bed was very comfortable.
