I just returned from a trip to Austin and as others have said this is the place to stay if you're attending a convention. The hotel and my room were spotlessly clean. The service from the front desk to the bell men and restaurant staff was all excellent. Last but definitely not least was the bed. Probably the best nights sleep I've ever gotten in a hotel. The room had a modern waterfall showerhead, nighlights, and large flat screen TV. We were near the elevator but did not hear a peep of noise. We did hear the alarm go off next door or in a room upstairs. We rented a car and parked it in the underground self-service parking lot. It was very very hot and not a comfortable place. So be warned that you'll be lugging your stuff to the main lobby without help. The parking rate is a high but in line with other hotel parking rates.
