Great service!

Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at the omni. The location is near ideal for late night stumbles and close enough to daytime activities too. What really made our stay special was the service. Our concierges Jonathan and Dustin really showed us great hometown hospitality and tipped us off for one of our most memorable evenings! Eric Tessmer every Monday night at friends!!! Don't miss south 1st street food trucks and stores!

Weekend getaway

The hotel is in a great location, close to entertainment and eateries. We didn't like the fact the pool was on the rooftop and small with no umbrellas. The hotel bar didn't have a Happy Hour, so we left and went to Happy Hour elsewhere. The restaurant in the hotel didn't have much of a menu and was overpriced for dinner.

Weekend

We just stayed in Austin for one evening and the location was very convenient. I was assigned a handicap room at first, but the bathroom got flooded from the showers within seconds. The hotel manager switched my room and even provided an upgrade. The rooms are a little bit dated but overall, a very nice stay.

Great getaway

The room and location was top notch and look forward to staying there again. The reason for the low in amenities is because we didn't use any or didn't have any to use.
