We stayed at the Austin Hilton Garden Inn North while in Austin for a state academic competition in which our son was participating. While I am a big fan of the Hilton chain, this hotel was not quite up to my expectations. First, the hotel is not in a particularly great location. It sits off of the highway at a fairly steep incline off of the roadway. The entrance is through an access road guard rail and because of the curve in the road, is somewhat difficult to spot as you're approaching the hotel. On a positive note, the hotel itself is quite nice and seems to be of new construction. The lobby is nicely furnished and while there is a restaurant on site, the lobby/dining area layout seemed somewhat cramped in comparison to what you would find at a regular Hilton. The room was also nice but the "king size" bed was more like a queen. The bed was quite comfortable and provided for a good night's sleep. My major peeve with this hotel was the water pressure in the shower, which was close to non-existent. The front desk person asked how we enjoyed our stay and when we commented on the water pressure, she said they had worked on it but were unable to find a solution. My guess is that this lack of pressure may have something to do with Austin area water conservation efforts, but there must be a better resolution than this. This was a disappointing response and I would say that this one issue probably served to taint my overall impression of the hotel. Overall, the hotel is newly constructed and nice. Unfortunately, the location, bed size and water pressure left something to be desired.
