Overview

Centrally located hotel with a pool and ample meeting space
On-site restaurant received mixed reviews

Unlike its sister property, the Omni Austin Hotel at Southpark, this hotel is convenient for both business and leisure travelers. Sitting just two blocks north of rowdy Sixth Street, the beautiful Omni Austin Hotel Downtown provides a great home base for sightseeing, while amenities like a 24-hour business center and ample meeting space make it easy to work on the road. Guests appreciated indulging in other amenities like the heated rooftop pool. This hotel is also very accommodating of younger guests; If you're traveling with children, you'll find the Omni Kids Crew program makes sure that the little ones get everything they need. Although recent guests praise hotel staff members for their friendly demeanors, they aren't as complimentary of the food or prices at Ancho's restaurant. Members of the Omni Select Guest loyalty program can offset high food prices by paying for their rooms with rewards points.

The soaring atrium lobby is bright and gleaming, the warm rooms have Texas-inspired decor and flat-screen TVs, and the chic rooftop pool with excellent city views is a notable draw.

The property has a resort air, with a huge marbled lobby; full-service restaurant (albeit overpriced); indoor-outdoor heated pool; large exercise room, whirlpool, and sauna; and modest spa. Rooms are decorated with classic restraint, which some might find stuffy.
