If you are looking for a place to stay in the Austin area that is away from downtown, the Omni at Barton Creek is it! I stayed there for a conference from July 31st to August 4th. The staff is friendly, and we received great service during our stay.
Our rooms were ready upon late afternoon arrival. The decor is very much suited to Texas, leather and calf hair chairs, wood frames on the head boards and the art consisted of old black and white photos of the Austin area.
The hotel is a bit of a maze but with the resort guide given at check in, and consulting the staff, I was able to make my way around and get to meetings on time. There are several meeting rooms on site, and sound/tech support was always on hand to ensure that things ran smoothly. The food provided by the hotel was great from continental breakfasts, lunch buffets, movie night, and sit down dinners. There is also a wine bar called 8212 Wine Bar, and a full service bar, Barton’s Lounge on site. Although the wine bar did not have sweet red wines the Chandon Rose was a great alternative. Barton’s Lounge has a great Moscow Mule that is worth a try.

The resort has a lot to offer guests. We saw several families during our stay. The hotel has a kids club and family activities. There is a golf course, pool, and a trail to walk, and enjoy the views of the Texas Hill Country. On the 9th floor of the tower, there is an overlook terrace where you can also view the countryside of this beautiful resort.
The tranquility room at the Three Springs Spa got rave reviews from the conference attendees. It is a calm cool place to relax and destress. If your company or organization is planning a small conference in the Austin area, consider the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa.
