I booked 3 rooms for a Saturday night at the Marriott Downtown. When we arrived, we were told that all 3 of our rooms have been cancelled. The reason was due to a large group of guests who decided to extend their stay. The only solution offered was to relocate us to the Marriott Austin South. Normally, I would just... More

We were staying with our 4 year old and got a two bedroom room. We also asked for a quiet room and they accommodated us very well. In fact, we never heard anyone outside our room in the hallways the whole time. We heard plenty of sirens but that's not the hotel's issue. Everybody was friendly. The valets were fantastic... More

Horrible hotel, it deserves no star at all! Booked a room for 5 nights through a conference housing agent. Reservation was confirmed by the hotel via email. At time checking in, I was told my reservation was cancelled! What the hell! They cancelled my reservation with letting me know! When asked why my reservation was cancelled.

This Residence Inn is located in the heart of Austin just a couple of blocks off 6th Street; close enough to walk but not so close to hear the noise. Service was friendly and competent.

As a gold elite, I was upgraded from a regular room to a one bedroom. However, the only difference is a wall. A wall that takes up valuable real estate in a crammed room. This has to be the smallest of all the Marriott one bedrooms. I would have rather kept my original room. I was staying for a teacher's... More

For business I exclusively stay at Marriot properties, and I now prefer the Residence Inn over all other reasonably priced properties - this location is a great example. The service was incredible, the complimentary breakfast was well above average, they had a 'social hour' with free drinks/apps, and the location was directly in the middle of Downtown. The only negative... More

Nice RI. Great staff and very attentive. They share a building with a Courtyard They have a large bar/restaurant in the CY which we used for breakfast and had a few drinks in the evening. This place is centrally located so you can walk to most places Austin wasn't for us. But the RI was great.
