We stayed at the omni last weekend and really enjoyed the hotel and Sunday brunch....great location only a block away fron the action. Rooms are newly refurnished. Lots of space and the food was good. Service was good and front desk very helpful. Parking only 18 for self park per night....with a bid online price was great!

We stayed at the Omni downtown before an event at the State Capitol. The hotel seems to be older, but is still very nice and definitely was convenient for us. It seems like this hotel would also be very convenient for 6th street and such...

The parking garage was a bit difficult to manage with a larger car and parking was $18 per day... steep.

The breakfast buffet was $15 (also steep), but included made-to-order omelets, breakfast pizzas, juices, coffee, etc.

You can't beat the location of this hotel - walking distance to 6th Street, and with a view of the Capitol. The decor of the lobby is a bit dated, but the service is excellent and the rooms clean and comfortable. The cinnamon rolls can't be beat - seriously, order some cinnamon rolls. :-)

Room Tip: It's a BIG hotel so ask for a room close to the elevator if you're traveling with small chil...

I went to Austin for a wedding, and stayed at the Omni because this is where the wedding activities were hosted. It was a brief stay, but very pleasant. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. It is really unique!! The staff was friendly and helpful and did whatever they could to make our stay a good one. They offered a few different packages a day before our arrival...we got the local beer/chips and salsa package which was a great price for what you pay for. Highly recommended. This is delivered to your room when you request it. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, it was quiet and we never heard any noise from neighbors. The weather was unusually cold when we were there, so we didn't get to swim. However, I wanted to check out the pool so went out searching. It was a strange path to take to get there, we found the door to the pool up a stair well at the end of a hallway. It was small but pretty, gorgeous view at night as it is a rooftop pool. One last thing I would like to mention is the hotel smelled soooo good!! I wish I knew what they used to make it smell this way!

Stayed 3 nights recently for large wedding group. Service and staff were EXCELLENT! Hotel is spacious, comfy, modern and clean. Every contact we had with staff, from check in, food service and concierge was outstanding. Very friendly and professional. Rooms were comfy and clean, with large clean bathroom. Well located downtown, easy walking distance to everything in town.
Would stay here again!

The Omni was well located. Having booked through Priceline, i felt the value was very good. The room, 327, overlooked the hotel interior bar and lobby, making it a must to keep the curtains closed most of the time. The king bed was very comfortable with many pillows and comfortable blankets. An oversized chair and ottoman, covered in material to ate it look cow like made the room very relaxing. A desk with chair and TV on a large wooden stand which housed the coffee maker, amenities and fridge filled out the main room. One complaint was the bug I found on the floor in the morning. The room was clean, but I guess large bugs are common for Austin.
The bathroom was standard size and nothing special. The tub was in bad shape with chipped paint that had been painted over and then was peeling. No light in the shower was compounded by the dark show curtain. The amenities were nice and fragrant and plenty of towels were available.
The staff seemed very helpful and polite during check in and check out.
Parking was very expensive, although I didn't have a car.
The gym had a lot of machines and was centrally.
I would try this hotel again, but check the bathroom before accepting the room.

Stayed at the Omni for a quick business meeting. Meeting space is a little confusing as it was on the side of the business tower... guest rooms on another tower.

Meeting rooms were either FREEZING or hot. Need ot work on that a bit. Catering staff was excellent and the F&B very good.

Went to the lobby bar for a glass of wine but staff there was a wee bit slow. Hotel is a quick two block walk to 6th street which is perfect because you don't hear the noise of the entertainment. All in all a great hotel.
