We stayed three nights at this Residence Inn the week after Christmas and were delighted with our experience. The hotel is immaculate and they have the best quality and variety of any complimentary breakfast we've ever had. Each weeknight there was appetizers & drinks in the Lobby and one night included a singer from a local Italian restaurant playing. This... More

This is my second stay at this hotel. Very nice property. Very clean rooms and lobby area. The extra space provides a home away from home feeling. Free breakfast was good as well as the evening meal. This is much better than a traditional single hotel room. I would stay again.

I stayed in a suite. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. The walls are not too noisy - sometimes you can hear the other rooms but muted. The front desk is friendly and there is a free hot breakfast buffet in the morning. It's not the highest quality, but if you're just looking to grab and go,... More

The place is surrounded by shops and restaurants, located in a very convenient area. The staff is very friendly. Tom from UK is extremely helpful in making sure that our stay is comfortable. The breakfast has many selections of both hot and cold food.

This was my first time staying at this location, but had a business trip for a week in Austin. Most of our group tend to stay at a competitor hotel, for their happy hour, but that location has grown tired and old. I decided to give my Marriott Rewards some attention and chose this location. I am 100% satisfied with... More

This is a nice new hotel. The rooms are nice and comfortable. It is in a great location, located near most things in Austin that you would go and visit. The staff is great, especially Karmice who runs the happy hour.

This is right in my old neighborhood and this gives us a GREAT place to stay near my family. Plenty of good food places in the same parking lot. Fresh clean rooms, excellent breakfast and of course a great location.
