Loved this hotel. Conveniently located to downtown and the University. The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were perfect. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the cookies are just a great touch. I will definitely be coming back here again.

Hotel exceeded my expectations as far as room quality and hotel staff. Would definitely stay there on future visits. Quiet and perfect location for all points in Austin. Breakfast was a B+, but the staff was A+

Great stay overall. Was in Austin for a conference and the hotel staff was very nice. Enjoyed the food, especially the cookies! Loved the location, I was near all the sites I wanted to see while in Austin. The only criticism was that it took too long for housekeeping to clean my room. Despite that, I would recommend this hotel.

Hotel hosted 81 members of the family and did an outstanding job. Every aspect of the three day weekend stay was accomplished in a superb manner. The manager was sent a letter of thanks for the outstanding performance of his staff.

We decided to incorporate university visits on our family road trip through Texas. This was not a Hilton we are use to staying in. They told us we did not pay for a view because we used a 3rd party. Also, we were told by the front desk manager all there is to do is go to the local taverns... More

My family stayed for 5 nights while we visited UT. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast excellent, and the staff was outstanding. The location is very convenient to downtown and UT. Will stay there again next time in Austin.

I was in town for a wedding and stayed here for a night. The self parking outside is a pleasant surprise, as I am tired of mandatory valet where they get you for $30 a day. Inside the hotel was clean, and the people at the front desk got us checked in quickly. The room was clean, and modern. It... More

It was dirty, no hot water for 2-4 days, the waiters over charged me in restaurant. Had to cut my visit short. Manager Bruce did help me find another hotel that had hot water. However they charged me full 8 days stay, then charged me for the actual stay without removing the hold they previously had. Then after that was... More

I want to preface this by saying the desk and maintenace staff was friendly, informative, and professional. We booked our hotel through the Hilton Honors program, and were informed by the hotel an hour before arrival that the hot water boiler was not working. However, they did not offer to find us alternative lodging at other Hilton properties in the... More
