I stayed at Barton Creek a couple of days before and during SxSW 2013.
- The hotel was beautiful and well kept.
- Rooms were clean and HUGE.
- The staff was courteous and very very nice. I liked everyone there!
- Hotel is far from downtown. Just like previous reviewers has stated, taxi cost between $40 to $50. The cost isn't even the worst of it, it was the wait. The hotel has to call a taxi from the city to drive up. On a good day, it'll take 20 mins, but I have waited over an hour! (This is how I got to know the bar staff.) Luckily during SxSW, they had shuttles that drive you down there, but that cost $20 a ride and no shuttle to take you back. If you are in Austin to explore the city or go to SxSW. I'd recommend staying downtown.
- The hotel rooms are separated into 3 areas and very hard to navigate.
Overall, if you are here to golf, this is a beautiful hotel to stay in. It's a getaway from the city. Not recommended if you are here to visit Austin.
