The room prices was lower as compared to JW Marriott or the W and it was located 2 blocks from 6th street. For the price and location of the hotel, it made for a perfect deal. I will def come back for a leisure trip and stay at the Omni. Also, the food was super, be sure to order the...

For upwards of $300 per night, I could lose the cash-sucking minibar, and would have MUCH preferred some basic in-room amenities like a small fridge or microwave. The friendliness/attentiveness of the staff were excellent. However, The entire experience was obviously engineered not to provide service, but to part me from my money. The overall lack of subtlety in this area...

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Downtown Omni... it's just overpriced. The room is your average room that you will find at any of the "suite" type motels on the highway. Every member of the staff is courteous and helpful, especially the valet crew. The weekend breakfast buffet is very good... but it's $20.00 and not quite as good...

This hotel is very nice. Customer service is very friendly and kind. The lobby is a shared atrium with the connecting office building (very fun to see the office workers playing ping pong while you are riding down on the elevator). There are amazing fresh flowers in the lobby, which is always an indication the hotel wants you to feel...

For as much as we were charged for our room I was disappointed with the actual hotel. The lobby is nice with all the glass, but the elevators are old and take very long time, hallways are gloomy and dark. Our room was old and depressing looking and the walls were very thin. The pool looks nothing like the website...

We do appreciate your constructive comments and will look at improving the shortcomings in the areas you highlighted in your review. Our pool bar is seasonal and we just recently opened it for service on Fridays and Saturdays, when weather permits. Please accept our apologies for the miscommunication. We hope to see you again in the future.

I love this hotel. Everyone that works in the hotel are friendly and helpful, Best Hotel for meetings held at the Capitol. Would not stay anywhere else when I come to Austin for meetings. Location, Location, Location. Great to take a walk downtown or to the river. Lots of entertainment on 6th street.

Come here semi-often for business. Got to finally come for some reason & r. The concierge knew my name. Then I got to my room and found a lovely birthday surprise. Great customer service. The kids loved the view and the pool.

We were in Austin for a class reunion and stayed at the Omni. The hotel is beautiful and the service is very good. The room was very comfortable and the view over the atrium was very nice.

This hotel was great! It was beautiful place. The only downside was the number of homeless people in the area. The hotel is beautiful. The staff was terrific, you can tell they love their jobs by the their interpersonal interactions.
