While I live in Austin, sometimes it's nice to not need a car. We had a friend's band playing at Headhunters, and we knew it would be a late night. We found a great deal on the web for the Omni, especially for a Friday night. At check in we requested to have room on a high floor if possible. Even though we'd booked at a ridiculously low rate, they immediately gave us a room on a top level floor with a balcony. We needed to make a quick trip to the liquor store & weren't sure how fast we'd be able to walk, so the valet directed us to a pedicab. It was quick, easy, and kinda fun. We went to some fun/weird bars on Red River. We even stumbled upon a Steampunk event complete with a brass band. After our friend's concert we took the very easy walk back to the hotel. We spent the rest of the night just watching all the action on 6th street (from our balcony!) as well as the 2-3AM round up of all the people who had too much fun.
Every Omni staff member was wonderful & accommodating. We were treated very well even though we were last minute bargain shoppers. My only wish is that the rooftop pool was open later at night. We took a quick look in the morning, and it looked like it could have been a lot of fun. We will definitely return (bargain rate or not). It was a great experience, and a perfect location.
