The Omni website provides directions from all major highways and the airport. Austin is the center of the Texas music and entertainment scene. Known as the “Live Music Capital of the World,” the city plays host to hundreds of venues that feature live music ranging from blues, country, reggae, Tejano, jazz and rock. Many of these entertainment venues are near the hotel.
