This property has three great things going for it ... it is very new, modern and clean, it is on the University of Texas campus, and it has a great bar/restaurant. Staff was attentive -- all around good experience.

We were in town for a reunion and enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean, grounds were well-kept and the staff was very professional. When I asked where I could print out our boarding passes for the flight home, the desk attendant printed them out for us. Location is very good but the $18/day parking is a little steep. There were... More

We found this hotel at the last minute through Hotwire. The location is great for the university, albeit a bit far for walking to downtown attractions. Very nice property, great comfy rooms, nice bed. I would agree with another reviewer the room had an odor(not unlike cat urine, which seems impossible given how immaculate the room was. Bottom line: If... More

The only thing that this place has going for them is their proximity to the UT campus. Other than that, they are a pretty standard hotel with nice flowers around the lobby. Service is just ok. Nobody goes out of their way to be nice. And they might steal from your room also. At least that's what happened to me... More

So I am sitting outside the hotel at the valet area in hot and humid Austin last week. I needed water and asked Chase Swafford, the valet, where to get a bottle. He ran off and came back with a cold glass of ice water for me! Tha't service above and beyond the call. Thanks much Chase. Will only stay... More

This hotel's location on the southwest edge of the UT Austin campus is it's best feature. If you're going to be attending anything at the university, this place can't be beat! Arrived at 2:15pm and room wasn't ready, but they stored luggage and delivered to the room with a convenient text message when room was ready. Underground parking, $18/night self... More

This hotel is a great choice if you must be close to UT for convenience purposes. It is a nice facility, but the rooms are pretty standard. I was not impressed with the bed and bedding as it was not very comfortable. For the price, I would say it is worth it if you need the location, but there are... More

I've now stayed at the conference center four times and it was above expectations each time. It's about the same quality as a Hyatt, and well-maintained. The conference center is another building separated by a courtyard, so it doesn't affect the hotel. It's in a pleasant area off University Avenue, surrounded by various university buildings, and near other Austin attractions.... More

Spent 3 nights for a TK20 conference here in June. Booked my room online without any problems. About two weeks before my stay received an email from concierge which prompted me to request a room close to the elevators and conference center. Valets who handled my bags were friendly; check in and out went smoothly, room exactly what I needed... More

My wife and I have stayed in this hotel several times over the last few years and I must say the maintenance of the facility seems to be falling off. Nothing was truly terrible, it just wasn't good either. The room looked as though some rowdy college kids had stayed there and had scraped up the walls and other items... More
