Central in austin, perfect for SXSW Nope
Very comfortable beds, and the warm cookies at the front desk were a nice touch.
Excellent Austin downtown choice. Close to both University and downtown. Rooms are huge compared to European standards, which is a good thing when staying and working a longer time in same place. Highly recommended! Slightly annoying was that WLAN/internet connection was not complimentary, and actually a bit pricey.
Rooms are extremely adequate for up to 6 people meetings. All rooms are well equipped with a kitchenette. Staff is very friendly. Prices are quite high, particularly those for breakfast.
Please write at least 15 words convenient location and priced reasonably, nice lobby bar staff and good tasting food. Check in staff. They could of been friendlier, to a Gold Hilton member. Never smiled and no greeting.
Location is very convenient. Hotel was average by all accounts. Negatives were two factors. The first was the inflated price for the weekend due to the F1 championship. This was unfortunate but nothing unusual. The real complaint was the noise levels through the night. Sounded like I was at a block party until 4am with no effort by the staff to speak with the noisy guests.
central position, helpful staff pay to park, should have been added online when booking no restaurant. fair breakfast
The location is close enough to walk to downtown, but far enough away to not be disturbed by late nighters in the streets. This hotel is an $80 a night hotel at best. I was charged over $220. You are forced to use the valet parking which was an extra $14 per vehicle which I didn't realize when I booked. The room had mold in the showers and there were several hairs stuck to the wall in the bathroom/sink area. On top of everything, I was charged twice for the room after a checked my bank statement due to a mistake at the front desk. The same exact thing happened to a friend of ours staying in another room. We received no phone calls to notify us of the mistake. Will not be going back again. You're better off staying at the Super 8 down the road. Thank you very little.
Worked better than I thought that breakfast was in a room across the parking lot from the lobby. I liked being just a few steps from the Capitol building since I hadn't been inside as an adult. The location was close enough to downtown to walk (5 mins to 6th Street), but quite a bit further to go to the more adult area of 2nd Street. Staff was friendly and after my visit quickly corrected a mistake in my billing. Worked great that I had pre-paid via Kayak and had no problems getting my room immediately. Breakfast was included (hard to find) but be aware the only protein was hardboiled eggs and there was very little fruit. At least there were (make your own) waffles! The construction noise across the street was not very conducive to sleeping late on the weekend. There was a huge gap under the door where light came in and A/C went out - like a motel instead of a hotel. The parking was mandatory valet @ 12.99/day and I don't remember that being listed online (at Kayak). Of course there wasn't another close place to park so I guess it was better than $20/night like some places downtown. This place got very crowded on Labor Day weekend, so check in and check out were kind of crazy.
I only stayed l night instead of 4 nights as it was terrible. I liked the location very much. The acoustics are so terrible that one cannot sleep due to the noise. You can literally hear someone urinating, talking loudly,etc.
The location is perfect. The hotel is overpriced. You are REQUIRED to use the valet parking at $14 a night. Between the time the valet took our car and we kicked it up a few hours later, a large scratch was left in one our car doors. The rooms don't have refrigerators and are quite small for the nightly cost.
It was fairly clean It was noisy, but it wasn't excessive
Just how close I was to the capital and ut Nothing
Nice beds and pillows Breakfast was limited
Staff was really nice. It's in a great location. Had to switch rooms upon arrival do to blood stains on one bed and questionable white crusty spots on the other. Found massive cockroach on the floors when we got back from being out all day in the new room. both me and the misses were covered in bites upon waking up. Almost certain it was of the bed varietal.
I needed to leave early as I was concerned for my saftey. It appeared the mainteance man was following me to my room. I did not go directly to my room as he was entering and exiting other rooms near mine and when I went down the hall he was right behind me. Maybe this was coincedential but it gave me serious concern.
