Best Place To Get High & / Or Re-Enact A Scene From Rear Window

Omni Hotel

The Omni's glass elevators are not intended for pregnant women, those with heart conditions, or children under 4'. The ultraswank elevators overlooking the lobby are Austin's closest approximation to a carnival thrill ride. "Stop this thing... I feel sick!" For a different kind of thrill, sit at the Omni Hotel's lounge, and the friendly bartenders will relate harrowing tales of couples, trios, and beyond who don't realize (or do realize, and enjoy) that their room windows allow for two-way viewing. Patient voyeurs may catch a glimpse of the intrigue themselves.
