Omni Hotel Downtown Austin
700 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701
The last post of my three part Austin series! Of COURSE you have to have a great place to stay when you visit to Austin, right? We chose the Omni Hotel Downtown Austin for its stellar location downtown. It’s literally right next to the Texas State Capitol – not kidding you, from our hotel room, we could see the top of the dome. It’s also right next to 6th Street where all the action is happening. They have a ton of bars and restaurants on 6th Street and we were right beside it! It’s also located on a quiet block so there’s not too much outside noise that we heard, but it probably helps that the hotel is encapsulated within another building. It’s REALLY cool. Like offices surround the hotel. You’ll see in my photos, below. We woke up on Friday morning and kept looking into people’s cubicles and meetings. Haha, we’re so mature. The windows aren’t tinted so be sure to not stand in front of them in undies ;)
Anyway – so the Omni Hotel Downtown Austin, to us, was just the perfect location and I loved that they had in and out parking privileges in an underground parking garage. You just pay a parking fee and you’re good for the entire day to go in and out as you please. It was really convenient for us since we drove around the majority of the time during our stay here. The staff was really friendly and helped us figure out how to get from point A to point B and they were really attentive! The rooms were so super clean and they pretty much set us up in a penthouse suite or something. The room was ENORMOUS!! And we got to ride in the cool ‘executive suites’ only elevator ;) pimp!
