I'm an Austinite who needed a staycation during a move. The aloft Austin at the Domain was convenient to a major freeway and all the shopping, dining, entertainment attractions of the Domain. The room was modern, clean, and very comfortable. Even though the hotel is very close (walking distance) to bars in the Domain, the in-house bar was fantastic with a very friendly bartender, great cocktails, and was perfect for watching a game. My only caution is that tourists may not realize this hotel is further away from Austin's main attractions (the Capitol, downtown area, UT Austin) than they realize. It's best to have a car if you stay here, or be prepared to pay high cab fares. Also, major construction was underway during my stay. I completely understand that the hotel could not help the timing or the noise and there was a notice in each room courteously explaining the construction and offering to move the guest if the noise became too much. However, there should be a notice on the hotel website for people making reservations that way and the noise was very very loud. It didn't disturb me because I'm an early riser but it would be jarring on the weekends. Hopefully this is a temporary problem. I would stay at this hotel (and have the martinis at the hotel bar!) again.
