This may sound crazy, but this was one of the best hotels I've stayed in. From the hotel quality, location and value I'm not sure it could be beat.
I stayed here for the NYE holiday, 4 nights. I booked it early in August at one price and when it went down I was able to call up and change it 2 different times. At $170 a night for weekend/holiday it was more than worth it.
As for the room, it was very nice. 2 double beds that were comfortable, a nice tv and bathroom was a good size with a big sink area. The shower was also has a great shower head, which is another plus when going to a hotel. It was also perfectly clean, which for me is huge.
The hotel itself was also amazing. It shares a lobby (although there are separate entrances) with an office building and the lobby is open so that looks kind of cool. There a restaurant (great breakfast buffet), Starbucks and bar in the lobby. My friends and I used all 3 and they were above average. They also had 2 free dry cleaned items and 1 free shoe shine. If you sign up to be a select member (see tip below) you get 2 free beverages delivered to your room each morning. I didn't use this however, because I signed up on my last day.
The staff/concierge/valet were also very helpful. I didn’t use them that much, but when needed they were good. Concierge set up a shuttle back to the airport and the valet guys gave some good tips for bars/restaurants. They also came around and gave free bottles of water and a bag of ice. We got it 2 days, not sure what time they come, but that was great.
I even checked out the pool despite the somewhat cold weather (I even went in!). It was on the roof and seemed like a really cool spot that overlooks downtown. The pool itself was small in size and depth, 3 feet, but it looks like a cool place to hang in the summer and/or warm months.
All-in-all the Omni Austin Downtown was fantastic. I will certainly stay there again if I'm ever in Austin, but the Omni brand is something I will look to use in the future.
