I was here attending a conference so I did not get a chance to do much sightseeing, but it seems to be centrally located - close to 6th street area definitely walking distance.
The rooms were just ok - nothing spectacular there, while they were functional certainly - they were "drab" it is not a room you would walk into and say "wow what a great hotel". The lobby and meeting spaces were certainly fine - again nothing over the top but nothing wrong with them either.
The staff was friendly for the most part. I did have a hotel housekeeper knock on my door at 7:40 wanting to clean - I think this is way too early to start trying to do that. Also I stopped by the front desk asking about where I could find a salon nearby. They handed me a map and made a circle on it and wrote the name down. No offer was made to call them for me or ask me some questions - ie: that would be going above and beyond and something that would have been appreciated. I got the bare minimum. Asked a question - she answered it. Nothing more nothing less. The climate in the room was problematic - if you turned it up it got very hot but if you turned it down it got icy cold. Also the walls were paper thin I could hear the guy next door to me on the phone regularly - as well as his TV and alarm clock. I also ordered dry cleaning that was guaranteed to be delivered by 5:00. It came at 6:30 and since my event had already started I had to wear something else. They still charged me for it. I did not eat at the restaurants, but the banquet food was definitely average to slightly below average. This hotel, to me, was a ho-hum typical business spot. If I were coming to Austin to stay with my family on a vacation, I'd look for something with a little more "oomph" on just about every level. Even if it was not as centrally located. But it is fine for business!
