When I was at BlogHerFood in Austin just a few weeks ago, I got to stay at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown. It was a lovely hotel and Blake and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Lets tour around, shall we? When you first walk into this hotel, you cannot help but look up! There is this huge wall of windows in the foyer.There are endless couches and chairs in one part, a restaurant in another part, and even a Starbucks cart! Of course there are lots of gorgeous fresh flowers in the lobby too.
Here’s another view of the lobby from one of the elevators. It was HUGE!Once I got my key, I had to use the executive elevators to take me up to my room. When I walked into my suite, this is what I saw! A big bed, a crib and a comfy sitting chair.The king bed was so comfy and cozy! I loved it! I’m not gonna lie, I thoroughly enjoyed NOT sharing my bed.This little monkey liked his crib too! photo courtesy of Tina
The bathroom was pretty huge. Like 4 times the size of my master bathroom at home. The shower was probably my favorite part. If it wasn’t for my cranky baby, I would have spent a lot more time in there instead of 2 minute showers every morning. Yes. I’m a geek and like to take pictures of myself in mirrors. Also, notice that robe on the left? It was sooooo wonderful! Sunday morning before Blake and I flew back home to Portland, we just lounged….and that robe got a lot of use 🙂 Ahh, yes. Another picture of myself. And of course I love these tiny little shampoos. And—>mouthwash!! Minty fresh, yo!
