Austin Omni Downtown Hotel
iMA will once again be held at the beautiful Austin Omni Downtown hotel in the heart of Austin. Instructions on accessing the iMA room block will be provided once you register.
You can easily walk to SXSW Interactive venues or 6th Street festivities from the Omni. For more information about the hotel, please visit their site: Austin Omni Downtown Hotel
For those of you who participated last year, you'll remember all the amenities of the Omni. They have a fantastic staff and beautiful facilities. All conference sessions will be held on site at the Omni. Other amenities include:
100% nonsmoking luxury hotel
Heart of downtown location
392 guest rooms and suites - recently renovated
Heated rooftop swimming pool
Free wifi access
Check out: Noon
The Omni has a free frequency program that affords many benefits like free wifi, free morning beverage, and free bottled water. More information can be found here.
Please note: iMA does not have a room block at the Omni during SXSW this year. The rates and conditions did not make sense. SXSW room blocks provide the best discount, and sporadic hotel availability downtown can be found through your typical travel sites. It just takes a little diligence.
Driving directions can be found here, but there's not a significant need for a vehicle while in Austin if you plan to stay at the Omni. Transportation to/from the airport comes in several forms:
- Shuttle service: $13 one way
- Taxi: $30 one way
- Limo: $75 one way
