I was so impressed by this hotel from the moment our cab pulled up to the front and the doorman leapt up to help us with our bags. There was a very fresh scent in the lobby, not overpowering, and chilled water with lemons on a nearby table. The check in staff were very helpful and we got free wifi for being IHG members. Our room was spacious, spotless and tastefully decorated with high end furnishings. We had a king deluxe room on the 12th floor and it had a queen sleeper sofa for my teen daughter. We ate lunch at The Roaring Fork, the hotel's restaurant, and it was delicious and reasonably priced. We ordered room service that night and it was quick and tasty. The location is perfect as we were able to safely walk to Austin City Limits for a concert and view the Capitol at night. The concierge staff arranged for a brownie plate in honor of my birthday (my daughter secretly requested it), which was a special touch when we arrived. Overall, an impeccable hotel that I would highly recommend. Oh, and it was friendlier to my wallet than The W or Four Seasons!!!
