Extras too pricey

Everything was extra (and big bucks) here, including the use of the computers in the business office. Really?? Even had we traveled with a laptop, we would have had to pay $9 a day to use their wireless connection unless we joined their rewards club. My phone worked for an internet connection, but my husband's was blocked while inside the hotel. As much as they charge for a room, you'd think they could offer some amenities free. I mean, it's just a room you sleep in. Oh, and the shower area was so dark when you pulled the curtain, you almost needed a flashlight - no way could a woman attempt to shave her legs in there.

Try to go between 5 & 7 to get the best happy hour deals in the 6th street area (including 5th and some side streets) - even at the nicer restaurants there.

Great Downtown Hotel

Great hotel for a weekend trip to Austin. Food, music and nightlife was all within walking distance. Roof-top hot tub was not working while we were there unfortunately. Room was wonderful except lighting was a little inadequate. No overhead lighting available except for one small light in room entrance that was burnt out. All other lighting in room was from lamps. Starbucks coffee kiosk in lobby was perfect. Overall good experience.

Excellent hotel and friendly staff!

I enjoy staying at the Omni in Downtown Austin. I've stayed here on several occasions. The hotel staff is always very accommodating. They are doing some updating but nothing too major to where one would say it's distracting. I will continue to stay at the Omni every time I visit Austin.

Nice experience in Austin

The location and comfort of the hotel was outstanding. Delicious food in the restaurant. Just a little problem with Hotel reparations, but all of them were on ours that didn't affect their guests.

Nice stay in downtown Austin

Spent five nights at the Omni Austin Hotel in early December. Location is great for walking to 6th Street music scene, state capitol, or warehouse district. Comfy, clean room. Hotel staff were courteous and helpful. Restaurant was a bit too pricey for the quality, but there are many other choices nearby.

Downtown Austin

This is a great hotel for the price and definately a must stay if you plan on being downtown. The room was lovely, the bar fun, and the room service dinner was fabulous. We will stay here whenever we go to Austin in the future. Loved it!

Try "Juan in a Million" for an authentic Austin breakfast with a Mexican flair. The owner will greet you at the door with warmth and hospitality.

It's a pretty good hotel, in a good location. It's just a short walk from all the interesting places in the downtown. The parking is an extra cost.
