Traveling to visit Georgetown, TX, I found this Hyatt place in Austin. Being a Hyatt snob, I am willing to drive just a little further to stay at one of their properties. This location provided excellent access to areas North of down town, and a much easier than expect drive from the airport. There is a controlled access freeway from the airport to this part of Austin.
The group working the front desk, including a woman who had just moved from Houston, were very welcoming, and further inforced my belief that Texans are more friendly than us Minnesotans! (Don't mistake Minnesota nice for Minnesota passive agressive) I was provided details on the energy efficiency feature of the room, and directions to the local burger joint that my seat mate on the flight in suggested. Service at the small lounge in the hotel was eaqually good.
The room is exactly the same as any other Hyatt Place, and was fully functionaly. The availability of the plug in options for the TV make Hyatt a great place to stay if traveling with a business group, and need to work together on a project (Which I did while staying at the Hyatt Place Milwaukee Airport in May). Suggestion: find a way to make it easier to get the desk in a location/movable to watch TV while working. It can be made to work, but is a little wonky.
The bed was big and comfortable, and I slept like a baby. The TV is HUGE, and visable from all parts of the roowm.
The bathroom is nice, and the shower is above par.
Overall, I will definately consider this location for my next trip to the Austin area.
