Good hotel outside of Austin. Clean and safe, but not fancy. The lobby and rooms were nice, but the corridors and elevators need a facelift. A bit of a weird layout in that it's "L" shaped hotel, so you generally entered in another door not the lobby. Easy to find off the highway. Small pool (unheated I'm pretty sure). Good breakfast. Only complaint is there was literally NOTHING in the neighbourhood -- no shops or restaurants. Had to drive. But the neighbourhood was safe which is super important. I would stay again.

This hotel is in a really great location of downtown Austin - close enough to walk to lots of restaurants and bars. The rooms were good size, very comfortable beds and pillows. Staff was friendly, we requested a room change and met no resistance. Some cons - the rate is expensive (we paid $750 for 2 nights) and still had to pay $60 for SELF parking. And we never moved our car from the garage. A hotel that is that expensive shouldn't charge for parking in my opinion. The pool was nice, but needed to be cleaned. Our first room was clean, but did not view the outside and we could hear every elevator ding all night long. The cleaning staff is also exceptionally loud in the AM and woke us up both mornings. Aside from that, the hotel was nice overall and the location was the best part.

Downtown Austin’s attractions include The University of Texas at Austin and the Texas State Capitol. Austin also lays claim to another capital: live music. Bars and clubs pack a half-mile stretch of Sixth Street. The gay-friendly Warehouse District is another nightlife hub, as is the SoCo District south of Lady Bird Lake. On summer nights, 1.5 million bats emerge from the Congress Avenue bridge.
