Omni Hotel: Downtown Austin (Review)
The hotel had the most STUNNING atrium lobby. It was super bright and open and it almost felt as if you were standing outside (although the nice cold air conditioner was a dead giveaway that we were indeed indoors)!
We couldn’t stop snapping photos of it- Jess busted me with my camera to my face …
We all had our own rooms, each with a massive and comfortable King size bed, private balcony overlooking the city, and a plush bathroom with all of the amenities you could need…
Hello big comfy bed! ALL. FOR. ME.
Okay, and can I just tell you about my OBSESSION with this massive shower?! I’m pretty sure that when I talked to hubs each night, I RAVED about the shower! Seriously. After walking around in the summer heat of Austin, a shower never felt so glorious! It was legit the highlight of my day.
Excellent Water Pressure + Great HOT water (this is KEY for me!) + tons of space = Shower perfection.
I wanted to bring it home with me…
There were plenty of towels and the vanity had enough space for all my toiletries, makeup, etc… It was stocked with the hotel basics (shampoo, conditioner, lotion) and a little box filled with cotton balls and q-tips! The maids tidied it up impeccably and restocked everything each day!
Oh, another great thing about staying at the Omni Hotel… if you sign up for their “Select Guest Program” you immediately get to take advantage of these fantastic perks!
On our last night, we decided to take advantage of the late-night room service… we each ordered different salads, all of which were delicious. They delivered the food quickly and got our order completely correct!
We also finally made our way up to check out the gorgeous rooftop pool! They have a bar open up there during the daytime which I imagine makes for a great time!
I absolutely loved my stay at the Omni and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a hotel in the Austin area. It was incredibly clean, had great amenities, and was in an excellent location! Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourselves!
