Good if you're traveling for business. Facilities are just okay.
Great staff, location, and layout!! The shower was our only issue. The temperature was either scolding hot or ice cold. Made showering very uncomfortable.
It was extremely loud with guests partying until all hours and loudness outside.
Nice place. Great rooftop pool! Some things in this place didn't quite work as intended. However management was quick to resolve the issue.
The pool is nice, the service was good, the location is ok. Way too loud and I was told that I should have expected the noisy drunk people outside my door for 2 hours every morning when the bars let out because it's the weekend. I wouldn't stay here unless you like frat parties.
Miguel Dubose was very accommodating when I called needing to let my fiancé check in before I myself was able to arrive. Our cleaning lady was very friendly and when I asked for a fan for the room she made it happen. Our server Fransico was very personable and friendly. Hmmm where do I start? Pictures online associated with the Omni downtown are pretty deceiving. The television in our room had a terrible picture. None of the hdmi ports worked or would even register that anything had been plugged into them. The AC in our room was useless. The coldest the room would get was 74 degrees. The unit would allow you to go as low as 60 degrees but the room never got below 74 and that was at 2-4am by the time it would cool to 74. We couldn't sleep or was so hot in the room. I called the front desk twice and they told me they would send an engineer to access the problem. He never arrived. Once I asked our cleaning lady she brought me a small fan. But at that point something was better than nothing. We could hear the entire conversation of the guests in the room next to us. The mattress are quite firm. Not that big of a deal. But the fact of not being able to sleep due to being sweaty and sticky was very annoying. Not once did anyone ask us if we would like to move to a different room. Maybe one where the AC actually worked worth a flip. The safe in our room was malfunicationing and would not open. Spent ten minutes trying to get into our room safe to remove my belongings. We live in Dallas and have never had an issue at the omni Dallas. But I will say that I will not stay at the omni in Austin again!
Our shower flooded and my husband's side of the mattress had what seemed like a broken spring or hole that sank down very deep. Our mini fridge was warm, nothing inside was cold or even cool. The light was on but it wasn't working. The Internet was $9.99 a day and then it didn't even work! I called for help twice, the first time they transferred my call to an offsite wifi support line - not helpful. The second time they were very rude and said they would be sending up engineers. We waited for 1.5 hours before giving up as they never showed up. If you can't help us that would be one thing, but don't say you'll help and then not show up! We left the next morning for another hotel that didn't feel outdated and had better service, better mattresses, and free internet.
There was not much to like Hotel lobby was always like a ghost town and neigborhood crazy. Two people were shot dead while we were staying there during the 4th of July weekend. We were stuck in our rooms with no room service and were escorted out through the back doors to get out of the hotel. It was a horrifying experience for my pregnant wife and I to get woken up by gun shots and murders at 5AM and ruined the rest of our trip. We want our money back for this stay.
Convenient location, great room, comfortable bed, good restaurant for breakfast, nice bar. Would stay again! You can hear the music from sixth street on Friday nights-but you're in Austin right?
Bed Room service (quick) View Heater did not work they gave us a portable heater and could not fix the heater. The days we stayed were cold so the portable heater was used but really didnt like having to do that extra work have having to make sure to turn it off before heading out.
No thing stand out Location, parking, service for the price, quality of breakfast/food was awful, gym was outdated Overall for the price you pay you can get much better hotel that this place
I enjoyed the scenery with all the extra amenities! We were grateful for not having to go out on the town and place ourselves in a precarious situation! The local restaurant and bar greatly satisfied our pleasures! The comfort and relaxing atmosphere of our room made it for a romantic night! We highly recommend your facility and plan to make more future stays at your location! Thank you for exceeding our expectations !
Very new and nice hotel. Very big hotel that has hundreds of people in the lobby at a given time. Never had a bad stay there and service is good. But always feel like I am a convention when I stay there.
When we checked in there was a candy wrapper on floor, pieces of trash in closet and a small piece on bathroom floor. I had to call housekeeping to clean our room Saturday after 4:30 pm. They didn't wipe the tops of bedside tables that needed it. Parking service was a nightmare. Long wait times.
The location was awesome, the staff was super friendly and very accommodating, the room was clean and had an amazing view of downtown. Overall it was perfect for a couple of girlfriends and I to getaway and explore austin. One thing that I didn't like was that the pool was extremely crowded every day and night that we were there. There was barely room to get IN the pool (you were pretty much shoulder to shoulder in there) let alone find a chair to relax on because they were all taken. We were really excited about the pool too but turns out it wasn't so relaxing. That's my only complaint tho, this hotel was amazing so I can't blame everyone wanting to be there and to enjoy the pool as well.
Everything! Beautiful room, beautiful city, excellent location.
The JW is centrally located to the Austin downtown area and many trendy restaurants and bars were within walking distance. In addition, the room, staff and on-site restaurants were excellent. When I spend that amount of money for a nightly accommodation, WiFi and Internet need to be a part of the package.
Rooms very average...In addition it was very noisy, could hear everything going on opening/closing of doors.. etc.
I liked how friendly the staff was. The entire place is super clean and nice. Accessible to many great restaurants and 6th st. Also there's a lake only two blocks away! The only reason why I didn't give it a five stars rating is because the entrance to the parking lot is so busy. They only had one entrance and unless you valet you were waiting to get into the garage. On the upside the wait was less than 7 minutes. Also the pool bar needs more kore bartenders. The pool attendees were really nice once you flag them down for attention.
Great gym/workout facility Very comfortable room Love the full length windows and light Great location Charge $$$ for wifi Noise from the street was surprisingly loud, even on the 30th floor
Beautiful hotel. Within walking distance to downtown, Lady Bird Johnson and Congress. We normally stay at another hotel on the lake but after a negative experience we chose to stay here. We will be booking here from now on.
Seemed very clean, friendly staff, great dining recommendations. Expected more for the price. Self park was not clear it was a charge until check out. Hotel drinks were pricey.
Rooms were great better than average. Staff very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms didn't have fans and there was no fridge or microwave in room. Also thought parking was too expensive
Everything was great Staff was very friendly and helpful Our room was awesome and so was the view. Definitely coming back !! Only a couple small things that I would have to say was the sink was plugged due to the little mount in the drain was disconnected, but they fixed it right away which was great !! And there was food left behind by the previous guests in our small fridge it's ok no biggie
Room was filthy when we first came in, beer bottle caps on the floor, bathroom amenities were all used half empty bottles ( lotions, shampoo and conditioner ).
I was placed in a recently upgraded room. Fit and finish was very modern, very clean, and comfortable for my 5 night stay. Restaurant and room service was very good. The location of the hotel was great. Directly next to Congress St. Bridge (bat bridge), pretty cool If you get a chance to check it out. The hotel sits directly on the recreation trail circling Lady Bird Lake, this was a great place to go for a walk or run. A quick walk across the bridge also put you in the core of downtown with lots of restaurant choices, Austin city limits, etc. The workout facility was also very nice and open 24 hours/ day. Overall great hotel and would stay again. Only reccomedation would be to have the simple sundries store open 24 hrs./ Day providing acces to snacks , medicines, etc. this would be a nice convenience and seems viable that it could be staffed by one of the night desk attendants as it is located right at the front desk anyway. Other than that, great stay.
Location was good. A walk to downtown and south congress. Tv was broken, couldn't watch it. The bathroom was old feeling. Not what you would expect for $300/night.
The room was a nice size also great view The lights were dim in the room. Definitely needs better lighting.
Wonderful breakfast and friendly staff Had to bring in housekeeping for toilet after minimal use, although they were very prompt. Limited hot water for shower.
the staff, the way we were treated, and the peacefulness of the place. nasty carpets (needed steam cleaning or replacement), leaking bathtub, cockroaches, and cobwebs on the windows.
The only 2 things I liked were: 1) Very friendly staff during the daytime (not so much at night time) 2) Great breakfast buffet Many things I didn't like: 1) Room was very dirty, in need of thorough cleaning 2) Room was very damaged, in need of repair 3) Room was very old and dingy, in need of remodeling 4) Room had terrible lighting 5) Room had very inaccessible power outlets 6) Night staff was very curt (day staff was excellent though) 7) There were a couple power outages during my stay (i will reserve partial judgement on this one item, as I understand it might not have been completely in the hotel's control) 8) There were several internet outages and intermittent interruptions in service throughout my stay. This was extremely frustrating as I had important work to do over the internet and this made it very difficult and at times impossible. 9) The guests above me were making crazy noise at all hours of the night. i mean as late as 4am. I am not usually someone to complain about noise, but this was seriously like stomping and jumping and slamming constantly through the night. I asked the front desk to do something about it, but it didn't seem to stop the problem.
Beautiful grounds and very nice and simple suites.
Clean rooms, comfy bed, friendly staff. All necessary amenities fulfilled quite well. Location is a bit odd for out of towner, not a nice area but the site itself is quite nice. Rooms were quiet even when noisy outside. Lighting in rooms could have been better. A fan in each room maybe. Also some simple furniture updates. Nothing else
The lady who ran the breakfast was very nice and accommodating I got this room as a "deal" for 125 because it had good reviews. There was hair in the bathtub, food on the cutting board, and a dirty towel folded near the sink. There were appliances, but they were extremely old and yellowed with age, and the carpet was just disgusting. I literally did not walk around barefoot the entire time I was there. The bed was comfy, but there were only sheets on the bed and no blanket, and the pillows were very uncomfortable. I resigned to just deal with it, as I was only there for the night and didn't want the inconvenience of switching rooms when it was probably just as poorly cleaned, but the extra charges put me over the edge. I am more than familiar with having a card kept on file for incidentals, but this place places a $100 hold on your account for 4+ days. It may be in the terms somewhere, but it wasn't stated to me ahead of time, and with how awful the room was to begin with, I am annoyed to say the least. Don't waste your money.
Tenía mucho carácter y encanto. Magnífico vestíbulo. El bar siempre tenía un ambiente agradable. Hacía olor a humedad en el bar y en el vestíbulo. Me recordó a un sótano antiguo. El aparcamiento costaba $40/día.
La buena calidad y servicio. El restaurante fue exquisito con un servicio de primera. La decoracion, limpieza y hospitalidad fue de 5 estrellas. Solo necesita un estacionamiento y piscina, pero se que estos son imposibles por su localizacion. no
Las habitaciones están limpias y son cómodas. ¡La piscina es preciosa! Tuvimos que encender el aire a 65 grados para estar cómodos en la noche.
Cama cómoda, agradable personal Si haces la reserva a través de terceros, se te cobrará extra para el acceso wifi, sin importar si te unes al programa Omni Club/programa. Kayak necesita abordar esta cuestión, ya que es negativo para un buen hotel. Omni necesita también renovar sus políticas en este tema...
The decor in the lobby and lounge areas is very nice -- stylish and modern, with a Texas accent. The rooms are also stylish and comfortable.
The location was excellent. Easy to get around Austin from the location and very relaxing with good service and staff. The fee for parking was the only thing that I exerienced at the hotel that I did not like. Fourteen dollars per day was excessive in my opinion.
the cleaniness of the hotel and the wonderful resturant the staff was very friendly!!but the young men at the front door to service you on arrival were courteous and very professional no
Great location. Only one attendant on duty while checking in and checking out. We checked in early and checked out early and both times we had to wait in line. Great value. Please continue.
the staff were very helpful and polite, the property is beautiful.
The aesthetics, restaurant, staff and amenities were excellent. The bed was so comfortable! The only problems were that the shower took literally 20 minutes to get hot, (10 to just get warm) and I realized in the morning that I could hear every single person in the nearby rooms and out in the hall, clear as day. So if you are concerned about privacy, or don't want to hear what your neighbors are doing, you might want to go somewhere else. Otherwise, the place was wonderful.
Super comfortable, helpful staff, close to EVERYTHING! Also, the room service was great. Try the tacos at 3am!
Chatty & friendly at check-in, popping cold beers to welcome us. 3 Public Bikes waiting for us in lobby so we could explore Austin. Guy pumped up the tires for us. Around corner to great bars on Rainey Street. Friendly folks. Just a perfect short stay. Nothing.
excellent staff it was hard to get used to no shower door, but workable.
The view in our room overlooked the lake & it was simply gorgeous! The staff was very friendly and very attentive. We brought our dog & she was the star of the show. They provided a dog bed & food bowls for her. The beds were so comfortable! Our bathrooms got clogged twice (not by any extra doing on our part). And our refrigerator never got cold so leftovers had to get thrown away from our dinner earlier that day. Geraldine's gets pretty packed at night, at least inside & there's one fireplace outside we tried to huddle around to keep warm.
The hotel is beautiful and well designed. Staff was friendly. "Wine hour" was fun, and very popular the night we were there. Bikes are free to rent and a great way to travel around the neighborhood. Upsold to "lake view" room where you can really only see a sliver of the lake. It should be called "pool view" and on the weekend we stayed, the "pool view" is not relaxing or romantic. The rooms aren't quiet, you can hear everything that happens in the hallway. Valet was expensive ($36 + tip in Austin!) and slow due to volume of folks checking out. Cars are parked in an uncovered lot across the street.
Very comfortable beds, and a-c/climate control, nice breakfast and nice bar next door for a tasty meal. Internet access and pool. Not the greatest location and a car or cab is needed for those visiting without wheels.
Location Hotel shows age...needs a big refresh.
It was easy to get to and close to major attractions of Austin. I was very disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. There was hair on the surround and in the drain of the bathtub. The towels smelled stale and the bed linens of one bed were wrinkled as to indicate someone had been either sitting or lying on the bed after it had been "cleaned" and prepared for my arrival. Although cleanliness is not everything, it certainly trumps everything else.
nice pool, but we came later, so couldn´t enjoy; guite simple breakfast
That there was a restaurant attached to the Inn, which made it very convenient for us.
Location, price, pretty good breakfast
Room is quipped with coffee maker and refridgerator
Great service and wait staff N/a
Horrible stay overall given that this is supposed to be a 5 star hotel which it is NOT. It has one outdoor pool which is off the other side of the hotel and barely heated for our stay. Spa also terrible with no whirlpool, sauna. Only a small steam room in each locker room. Room and view were nice in downtown Austin, but that is about it. No tennis courts nor golf and only 3 or 4 spa treatment rooms. Gym area pointless with only a few treadmills and free weights. Will not stay again given price and lack of amenities. How is this 5 star??? not a typical four seasons for sure!!
The Four Seasons Austin is a magical place. The building and grounds are the best of the best. Austin is a beautiful city and the Four Seasons helped us to enjoy and experience this great city. We asked the Concierge what there was to do in Austin. He told us that he might be able to get us tickets to see Wicked. He did. The performance was sold out and was truely amazing. As great as the hotel was, the staff were even better. Why do we like the Four Seasons so much--because the staff provide a level of service that we experience no where else. My wife told me that they made her feel like the most important person in the world. We want to go back to Austin, to spend more time at the Four Seasons and to spend more time in this very special city.
I was expecting to be wowed at the four seasons, particularly given the price. I found the hotel to be nothing special. Everything was just ok. The staff was friendly, but then again, everyone in Austin is friendly. I could not believe they charged for wi-fi. That was really a cheap move. The spa was alright, small with not much atmosphere. The entire experience was just alright. I did feel a bit ripped off for the price. The are many hotels in the area for substantially less money with the same features. I would explore other options if I return.
The charm and the location. The bar was also fun and lively. Rooms were a little dated.
I was somewhat disapointed in my stay at Four Seasons Austin. I expected it to be a wow hotel and it was just nice. Very expensive when there were lots of other good places nearby for less. the hotel charged for wi-fi, come on ! You could get it for free at coffee shops now. Cheap! Up graded to balcony room on river view side, you could only stand on balcony! No chair or table, no room for one! What was the point? Staff was friendly, everyone in Austin was friendly. room was clean, I expect that in a good hotel. Spa was okay, not very inviting, small bad view. I would not bother to stay here again. Not up to par with other Four Seasons I've been to, not worth the price.
Very friendly and professional hotel staff. Very timely room service. The Outdoor space on the river side of the hotel could be spruced up, but it's not bad.
I attended a conference at this hotel, so the rate was much below market rate. I upgraded from a Cityview room to a Lakeview room. The two rooms are identical, the only difference is the view, so decide if the view is worth the extra. In my case, I thought it might be quieter facing the lake, and it gave me a fabulous view of the bridge where the famous Austin bats emerge each night. The room was attractive and comfortable. I liked that the small fridge in the room containing items you have to pay for could be emptied out and filled with my own items. Room service charges were exhorbitant: $ total for a salad with seared chicken on it, and the greens were not fresh by the time I got the meal. Outside of meals provided by the conference, I didn't eat at the hotel. Service was wonderful. One weird thing is that they don't put a book in your room acquainting you with the locations of all their services (pool, spa, ice machines, etc.) When I asked about it, the desk clerk immedia...
My husband, two kids (5 years and 2 1/2 years old) and myself took a vacation to Austin, Texas for a couple of days and we decided to stay at the Four Seasons. Because there is construction going on City side of the hotel, we upgraded to a Lakeview Suite. The Lakeview suite was double the money and then some -- but we figured, Hey, we are on vacation and for that price, this has got to be luxurious. Well, I'm sorry to say that I was very disappointed with both the size and the look of the suite. It was much smaller than I anticipated and the furnishings were very basic. Just a basic pull out sofa -- no frills at all. The bathroom was very small and very plain looking. My husband and I have travelled a lot before and this room was most definitely not worth the price tag. That being said, everything else, and I mean everything, was superb. The service was incredible, everyone was polite and we were all treated like celebrities. Honestly, the staff is wonderful and made us all as comforta...
Yes all of the above! This hotel goes above and beyond to meet your personal needs. Nope
Cómodo y muy bien ubicado cerca de la Avenida 35 que es la principal. El estacionamiento es poco cómodo y algo sucio. También el hecho de que el Desayuno sea a parte del costo de la habitación lo encarece. Tuvimos que salir fuera del hotel a desayunar y cenar por el costo.
Su ubicación y la alberca indoor/outdoor El servicio de valet parking golpeo nuestro auto. La gente de limipieza no dejaba suficientes essencials para las 3 personas que estabamos en la habitación.
El aparcamiento cuesta $20, lo cual no estaba indicado cuando reservé la habitación. Mi habitación estaba al lado de los ascensores, la botella de agua en la habitación costaba $3.50, la luz en el baño funcionaba sólo a veces, y a la mañana siguiente cuando fui a dejar mi vehículo, había botellas de cerveza alrededor de mi camión y manchas de orina en el cemento. En general, la experiencia fue horrible, no me plantearía alojarme aquí de nuevo.
People: everyone was cordial and useful The AC and TV in the room are old and the AC is very noisy.
The hotel staff was most helpful. Fitness is poor and doesnt have any facilities. Hotel administrator was rude, besides, he was the only rude guy in the hotel team. Nearly impossible to catch a taxi - its more like the problem of the city not the hotel. But the fact is that hotel is like 6 miles from downtown so the transportation is a big issue.
Free Wifi, nice room, nice staff. All in all a nice hotel. Breakfast buffee was a joke. Almost nothing to chose from. Though the staff was helpful to get toast. The hotel is not situated downtown. You need to get a taxi ($12) to get to downtown Austin.
Very friendly staff, and it's closeness to the city center. 10 min w. cab to Austin convention center. Breakfast was not especially impressive.
A bottle of champagne or wine a lil more romantic vibe would've been great especially since we're from out of town celebrating New Years Eve
The location and staff are great. The facilities are under construction that results in an annoyance and hit and miss with rooms and floors.
The staff was very helpful in giving me directions and suggestions of places to go and see. Everyone I came in contact with (on staff) was very gracious. The late night room services was punctual and the food was good. The swimming pool was pretty nasty - the water was cloudy and looked like it was stale. Also, I stayed three nights and was disappointed to find that I was given what appeared to be one of the smaller, older version rooms that faced the parking lot. I noticed in passing a room where the door was open that other rooms had a flat screen television. Just this minor thing makes a difference in how the room feels (ie, the flat screen tv gives the illusion of a bigger room because of the additional open space not taken up by the older 'box' tvs. Had I realized the difference in rooms when I first checked in, I would have asked to be moved. Since this was my first visit to Austin, TX, and it would have been nice to have a view of the city.
Location was great and the staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful.
Very nice hotel in a great location My room was very small for the price
Everything except the valet parking (that service was good & prompt, though); self park would have been preferable. Staff-ALL staff-was excellent, highly competent & knowledgeable, courteous, professional and friendly. I believe that the SFA hotel staff could compare favorably with hotels ANYWHERE. Only indoor pool; outdoor pool would have been preferable. Would have rather had self-parking available than valet parking
In "nice" hotels like this, one oftentimes encounters staff workers that are acerbic and demeaning w/o realizing it because the culture of the environment encourages that behavior. The staff in this case was excellent and down to earth. They smiled and laughed when I joked around w/ them (and I am funny .... and cute!). Most notably was our concierge, "Chenisse Johns," OUTSTANDING!. She was so helpful w/ many of our questions whether giving us directions for local restaurants or providing us w/ an upgrade in our room - which we took advantage of on the last night of our stay! The rooms on the 16th floor were fantastic and grand. They were quiet, allowing us to really SLEEP & wake up refreshed. I definitely would stay here again. OH, it's right in the heart of downtown, thus one can walk anywhere from the hotel.
Good location, clean, quiet, air conditioned, restaurant attached, computer in lobby to print your boarding pass.
nice decoration, nice ambiance, good room, was standard double very noisy airconditioning, should really be improved
No problems with reservation. Location was superb. Concierge was delightful. Difficult to find in the dark. We found the room a bit small and not quite enough room in the bathroom. The water and/or the plumbing had an off-putting smell.
Cleanliness, and friendly staff. Downtown location is great for exploring 6th st area. South Congress is a long walk (esp. in hot sun), but was still do-able. Parking at the hotel is $40 / night by valet. We ended up at a nearby garage @ $24 / night.
The staff was amazing. Very nice and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect for what we wanted. The room was a bit muggy and humid.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful here and the price was better than most hotels in the city. We really enjoyed our stay here! Valet parking is pricey
Very close to downtown clubs and restaurants. Good restaurant on 18th floor. Safe area. Very tiny pool. Really it was the same size as the spa. It was just for cooling off.
Breakfast was delicious, beds were adjustable, room had great amenities, very clean, greatly enjoyed my stay The hallways were a little loud
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was close to the location for the wedding we were attending.
The place was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was excellent and the location is great if you want to hit the downtown Austin touristy stuff (which is plentiful). The bathroom was extremely small (you had to step outside the bathroom to dry off), and rather weirdly, the toilet was shallow -- which I mention because you WILL get wet using this toilet. Very uncomfortable for a man. Never seen a toilet like that, and I hope to never see another one again. The AC didn't work well and was a bit noisy.
Great location for access to entertainment. Excellent buffet breakfast to tide us through the day. Staff very friendly and helpful. Cigarette butts in surrounding walkway near the river. Nearby ash tray. People are pigs. Sofa bed sheets pretty rough.
Good room nice both room
Convenient location $16 a plate for breakfast with no warning. $30 mandatory valet with no warning.
Good front desk service Checkout isn't till 11pm. House keeping kept trying to come in before 9am , kept waking us up twice!
The location is excellent for Austin downtown activities Poor Internet connection
Location and price. The front desk person was not accommodating. Had booked a king bed for my wife and I and at check in was simply told they don't have one and that we would need to take a room with 2 double beds instead if her upgrading us to a different room w a king. Upon arrival at our room, the keys did not work and then had to move rooms
La habitación era muy espaciosa y confortable. Al llegar tube la sensación que era un hotel de mucha actividad nocturna, fiesta y jaleo, quizas por el restaurante que tienen con musica en vivo cada noche. Por el resto, todo bien.
Aparcamiento no incluido
