If you are travelling to downtown Austin for business or you are looking to enjoy 6th street, this hotel is a good spot. It is actually connected to the Renaissance next door and both offer clean, quality rooms that you expect from the Marriott chain. the fitness center (located on 2nd floor of Renaissance for both hotels) iis nicer than most similar hotels with a good number of cardio machines, a dumbell rack, and a few weight machines, plus an attached pool/spa that overlooks the city. the rooms themselve are large, with good work space, and a nice bathroom.
It's a bit pricier than some other courtyards ($170-250/night while I was here in mid-jan) and valet parking was pretty steep ($30+/night), but given the location, you cant go wrong here.
