You walk into this hotel and you feel like you've stepped back 30 years. It really needs updating. The rooms are fine, large event - but very out of date. The restaurant (which I only used for breakfast) is like a museum piece (and that includes the staff).
Although we took a cab, it's falrly easy to walk to the unique Rainy Street area of town. This was my first visit to Austin and found that experience totally unique - don't miss it.
Back to the hotel - there was ample parking and they didn't kill me - so no complaints. I think you can do better though.
