I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last few years as an airline crew member on overnights and visiting my daughter who is in school in Austin.
The location right by the lake with its ride/running trails is perfect for getting out for some exercise. The hotel is also only about 5 blocks down from Famous 6th street. There are lots of small eateries and clubs in the mixed use neighborhood adjacent to the hotel so walking into the heart of downtown is interesting.
The hotel has a decent gym and very nice pool deck on top of the parking garage overlooking the lake. The food and drink in the bar and restaurant are good for hotel fare and the staff is always very prompt and friendly.
One last amenity worth mentioning is the segway/bike/boat rental company based in the hotel. The segway tours are a lot of fun and worth the price. The bikes are in decent condition compared to many other places I have rented and the price for bike rentals is very good. Honestly, a bike is the best way to get around the university and downtown areas of Austin during daylight and these guys make it so convenient and easy.
