“Austin ACL Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Great Location and very good staff. One of the better breakfast at a hotel. Close to everything. Good news it is close to 6th street. Bad news it is close to 6th street. When 6th street shuts down you can hear the traffic noise. It also has very easy on and off to I-35.

When I am in Austin on business, I always stay at this hotel. I love the location, complimentary coffee and juice..with the Omni select card...and the gym. The rooms are great, and the Omni Ambassadors take great care of me. The flowers in the foyer are always beautiful...and the lobby , bar and restaurant are all wonderful!

Room Tip: Be sure to fill out the select guest card fir the coffee and juice. Check the " knock and leave...

I'd say this was one of the nicer hotels in Austin. The room was very comfy and we were given a really good view for no extra charge. It is central to downtown. We went around a holiday so it was pretty roudy, but it is a college town. We really enjoyed our stay.

If you are looking for a large, hotel convenient to downtown, this hotel is it. Rooms were nice, big and clean. The service was friendly and helpful. Just a few blocks up from the famous streets of downtown Austin.

I did enjoy this hotel, very clean, very helpful. You can tell this staff wants to be perfect and I love that in a hotel staff. Management has delivered a clear picture of what they desire and want from there staff. From the Valet to the people who clean the room were extra kind, didn't have to be that way. Bathroom was exceptionally clean, room was extra comfortable. Service was A+ they want it to be right and will do whatever it takes to make it right! Great experience.

Clean, comfortable rooms. I also really liked the shampoo and conditioner provided. The lobby bar area is a really great spot for a drink and breakfast was also very good. Everyone (especially the concierge) was very friendly and helpful. The location can't be beat... two blocks from 6th street, 8 blocks from the water.

We attended the Texas Craft Brewers Festival in Austin and as it is a 3 hour drive (and we were drinking at the festival) decided we needed to stay overnight. We chose the Omni first because I can get a corporate rate, second for the location, and third for its reputation of being a nice hotel. The location is very convenient and their are many great restaurants within a couple blocks walk. The staff is their greatest asset and as friendly and courteous as any I have ever met. The rooms are very nice but I would recommend that for a weekend stay ask for an interior room... one thing the hotel cannot control are the sounds of people partying on 6th street and you are right on it. When I go back to Austin I plan on staying there again and recommend you should too.
