If you need to walk to the Capitol, this is a great place to stay. It is quiet and you can walk to most places downtown that you want to get to. The staff were all super friendly and the whole hotel was clean and neat. It has an Austin "vibe" to the decor which I enjoyed as well.
The only negative was that when I first checked-in, I was given a room on the 2nd floor which didn't have an outside view. These rooms look into a tiny little "atrium" (don't think flowers and sunlight, think four walls, your neighbors window, and butterfly chairs). This freaked me out (yay claustrophobia), but luckily they were able to change me to an outside room. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had to stay in that room. A warning might have been nice as I'm sure I'm not the only person who finds this unpleasant and most people do not expect this design outside of a cruise ship. I realize some people might like this very much, so this is just my personal opinion of this design.
However, all that being said, when I asked to be moved, they were SUPER helpful and moved me quickly into an amazing room where I had a wonderful and comfortable stay. The beds were great, clean and comfortable.
I would absolutely stay here again, the service and the hotel were excellent, but the architectural aspect of the inside rooms isn't my style.
If you like sunlight, be sure to ask for an outside facing room!

Thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor. I was delighted that you thought our location was "great". We agree,, we are centrally located to all Austin has to offer, steps away from the University and Capitol and 11 blocks from the entertainment district, where you can enjoy it without being trapped in it. Thank yoiu for your comments on our "Austin" vibe and how clean our hotel is. Our staff takes great pride in keeping a clean hotel. We do have a small number of rooms, 15 out of 37 that are our atrium rooms. They are the quietest rooms we have. We look forward to your next visit with us!
