Accompanied one of our friends to Austin and stayed at this hotel for a night. Although we are Omni Select Guest Members, we booked our stay through Priceline this time and our price bid went through, so we were able to get the hotel for $105 a night, a big savings (especially for downtown Austin). This hotel is located about 2 blocks away from 6th street on the quieter end. The hotel staff were very friendly and courteous. In the past, I've noticed that you are treated differently, if you book your room on a different website from the hotel and they do not give you credit for the stay. I'm not sure if they gave us credit as a stay on our Select Guest Membership, however, they did give us all the perks. So I did receive the room preferences that I choose as a Select Guest and first dibs on the room, instead of waiting to see what was available.
The room was nice and clean. We checked in at 6:45 p.m., went to dinner, and came back later to see that they turn down the room. Very nice touch.
The concierge was great. On the way to the hotel, I called ahead because I didn't know the number the San Francisco Steak House and I wanted to get reservations. The concierge told me they would look up the number, make the reservation for me, and then call me back on my cell. Turned out the number listed on the internet and phone book were not working numbers and I later found out on the way driving out of Austin, that the restaurant was closed. Not sure why. Anyhow, when I got to the hotel, they referred us to a really great steak restaurant 2 blocks away called Dan McKluskey's and also gave us a card with the Chef Special. When we got to the restaurant, we found out that that meant $6.95 off an appetizer. You never know what the Chef Special is until you get to the restaurant. The food was good as well as the service. The ribeye steak starts at about $29.95 for a 10 oz. but it worth it.
Overall, I would stay at this hotel again. It made for a nice getaway and the service just made it even better!
