Omni Austin Hotel Downtown

Reviewed 11 November 2013

I stayed at the Omni Austin Downtown for a combination work/leisure stay. My room was clean and spacious, but it was very noisy in the hall. I was really surprised that the hotel was filled with so many college-age kids - felt like more of a party hotel than for business travelers. As with all Omni's, I really loved getting the coffee delivered to the room. The concierge was helpful - providing me with walking directions to Rainey Street which has a lot of cool bars and restaurants.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled solo

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear you were disturbed by noise from your neighbors. Our management team does respond to each and every noise complaint reported. Due to our proximity to the entertainment district, we do have a mix of travelers in the hotel on weekends. Our goal is to provide a comfortable stay for all of our guests and we hope you will give us another opportunity in the future.

Hotel room and facility were clean and well maintained. They went over their noise policy (call downstairs for any disturbances after 10:30 p.m.) at check in. This should have been a tip off. The rooms have virtually no sound proofing. We heard everything going on in both neighboring rooms. Our neighbors were not being particularly loud but we could hear their entire conversations. At this price point, they should invest in better doors between adjoining rooms and more soundproofing. Hotel does provide "sleep kits" including ear plugs. That helped second night but we would still not stay here again.

We thank you for the constructive feedback in regards to your recent stay. We're sorry to hear you weren't able to sleep comfortably. We hope if you do reconsider and return in the future, we can provide a more peaceful experience by placing you in a non-adjoining room.

Terrific convenience in location- we were easily, and safely able to walk to anywhere we wanted to go downtown! I usually have trouble sleeping away from home, but this was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.

Beautiful hotel in central location. Easy walk to music, food, river etc. Friendly staff, easy check in, great rooms. I recommend a room on the higher floors. Stayed on floor 18. There is noticeable noise from the bars at night and construction in the morning. We used the room fan each evening which reduced the street noise. Great hotel.

The hotel was fabulous. One of the wonderful things, the proximity to the vibrant 6th Street scene, also meant that you could hear it once in a while at night. That being said, we would stay there again in a heartbeat. Best staff ever. The restaurant (Anchos) has an excellent breakfast/brunch.

Again a very positive Omni hotel review, perhaps biased by a superb freebee one bedroom suite over the weekend thanks to the generous Select Guest frequent sleeper program. Only remark would perhaps be that despite a large bathroom, there was only a shower, not a bath in the suite. No big deal.

Pleasant and personable service, e.g. at check-in.

The Omni Austin downtown has a superb central location, steps away from Sixth Street nightlife, Congress avenue, the State Capitol and even the famed food trucks and trailers on seventh and eightth street.

The building has interesting architecture dominated by a very spacious and tall atrium which you can oversee from the elevator windows.

Great location, friendly service, clean/nice/roomy rooms. We were here for a business trip, and because of the location were able to explore downtown Austin and do business. All the food served at the meeting was excellent and the team of servers did everything perfect!
