    Convenient to the University. Very clean rooms. Comfy beds.

    Had trouble with the door locking. Had to slam it several times for it to click. Also the a/c system was a little confusing since there were 2 controls and only one worked.

  • Single

    I didn't have any time to take advantage of any of the facilities other than the room. What I saw was very pleasant. The location was perfect for where I was going. The decor is very modern and it was spotlessly clean. The bed and pillows were really comfortable. Traffic noise may be off putting to some.

    Could have done with a little more light in the bathroom it was hard to see and a natural light would have been appreciated. Also, a magnifying mirror would have been great, although I did bring mine from home. More water pressure in the shower would have been bonus.

    The food was really good - nothing too fancy but reliable and tasty - and the service was helpful but unobtrusive. The toiletries were fairly high quality, having a desk and a large TV in the room was great and the internet was fast and dependable.

    Unless you have a car, it's impossible to walk into Austin from this hotel - the highway is horrible to cross and getting a taxi back, unless you have an American mobile, can be pretty tricky. Not great for lone travellers from other countries, from this point of view.

    First I would like to highlight the wonderful welcome we received at the hotel. The staff at the reception, in particular, Mr. John and Mr. Michael were incredibly friendly and helpful and assisted us in solving problems. If it were not for them, our arrival and stay in Austin would not have been so spectacular. We strongly recommend this hotel for location, cost benefit and excellent group of employees.

    We love the location and the extra space with the pull out sofa! Also Tunisia who works at the front desk is exceptional at customer service. She just gets it-and quickly! You should promote her or at least hang on to her!!

    Cleanliness around the pool area

    Proximity to downtown; the staff & the hotel itself.

    The mirror coming out of the bathroom - a "fat" mirror.

  • Family with children

    comfortable hotel is good and the location

    the elevators are very slow

    Unbelievably high prices for breakfast, no coffee place nearby for a decent cup of coffee. Bad facilities.

    Staff was great and the whole atmosphere was awesome......it was located in such a convenient location, since we were attending an event at the Frank Irwin Center...I would love to stay here again...

    Helpful staff

    Despite requests have not received an eletronic copy of receipt for room- only incidentals

  • Family with children

    convience to ut... comfy..efficient staff.. esp Shea...very good flow for coming, going, meeting and eating

    elevator needs cooler air...as do elevator lobby areas... otherwise no complaints

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The location was perfect for the convention center across the highway, the front desk employees were very pleasant and welcoming. I like the easy parking.

    I recommend adding towel bars in the bathroom. We were booked into a handicap room which made it awkward for us.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Proximity to ut campus-we could walk there instead of fighting on campus parking. 2 chairs in the room. Free wi-fi in room, even though it was a bit slow. Flat sceen T.V. that swivels.

    Your website offered a "city view" for $20 extra. My view out of the window offered one of a Denny's restaurant and a corner glimpse from a small window of a few city lights. I was disappointed in the view. Dark parking lot-few lights. Doormat upon entering hotel was dirty and needed vacuuming. Not enough lighting in bathroom.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    The AC is right beside a bed. It is so noisy that we can't fall asleep. The floor in AC area was wet.

  • Single

    window closure not good. Wind coming in.
