It is hard to understand the positive reviews. Other than a modest rate, nothing recommends this facility, which is badly in need of refurbishment. I spent two nights listening to people up and down the hall. Housekeeping tries to keep the rooms clean and the staff does a nice job, but there are many alternatives in Austin that are similarly priced and that do not smell of years without freshening up. I hope Hilton will invest in the property which is well located.
