We stayed for 3 nights recently and I think the staff went out of their way to be helpful, especially the concierge. The front desk and bellmen were also wonderful. We stayed on the Club floor #14 and there was construction above on floor 15 all weekend. It was interesting that they were even working on Sunday.The hotel is centrally located, near 6th St. music clubs, bars, not far from University of Texas, right near the capital building.The hot tub on the roof is closed for repairs. The gym was nice.

I had an upgraded room way up high in this upscale hotel in downtown Austin, Texas. All was incredible until the band at a nearby bar got louder and louder. The guy at the front desk could only assure me that they would shut down by 2 am. He offered to bring me earplugs, but I just dealt with it.

Thank you very much for your review. We do work with the city of Austin in monitoring noise to ensure it stays within the levels allowed by the city. In the future, feel free to request a room with an atrium view as these rooms offer a quieter stay. Thank you for your time and we look forward to having you stay with us again.

The Omni is in a fantastic location with exceptional service and clean facilities; what you would expect from this brand. While my expectations where not exceeded at any point during the stay, everything from breakfast to concierge service was up to par.

My wife and I visited for a four day seminar recently. Without the seminar deal, the rooms were $319 per night. Everything in the room was nice but that was all. The bed was very comfortable. Location is only two blocks away from the parties on 6th Street. The hot tub on the roof was closed down for repairs. We were on the 7th floor and we could only slightly here the jack hammer doing renovations on the top floors. If I had paid over $320 a night and I had to put up with more noise.... it would have been really bad. Excellent food and drinks at the restaurant and bar.

Room Tip: Don't get close to the renovations!

I enjoyed my stay at the Omni because I got a great rate from Hot wire.I dont think I would have been as enamored with the place had I paid full price. For the $100 it was a bargain.

It has a good location close to 6th street and various other restuarants. Since I only stayed over night I can not complain about much. The rooms were basic,clean more like a three star hotel though. They have a fairly large breakfast buffet. The food was good.

Conceirge was helpful in finding us a good restaurant that evening.Perrys steak house. Which was great. We really enjoyed our meal there, where we celebrated my sons 21st birthday. Then he went partying with his friends on 6th street.

They let us have a late check out. I found the staff to be very curteous. My only complaint was that there was so much noise coming from outside the hotel at night that it kept you up. The music went into the early morning. They should put white sound machines in the room so you are not disturbed by the partying outside. Overall it was a nice place to stay given the good price we got online.
