“Team Meeting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great location, only 2 blocks from 6th steet, within walking distance to various restaurants. Champions Grill and Starbucks located on site. Nice fitness center. The staff was very helpful and willing to help. The rooms are OK, but a good location for having business meetings. The food was very good and the waitstaff very very helpful.

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.

thehelpfuldad,
Thank you for choosing our hotel. We will always look forward to entertaining whenever you are in Austin. Most hotels in Austin only offer a valet option for parking but we do extend two options $23 for covered garage parking with unlimited in and out and $29 for valet services. Thank you again for staying with us.

Hotel is located 5 min walk from famous 6th street and easy to get to from highways. Staff is very kind, from parking, front desk and restaurant. Gold members are welcomed with little gift. Rooms are outstanding, hotel is very new so that helps. If there is one downside, when staying during the weekend there are some younger party guests which can make some noice. Your choice to join the party or not. I enjoyed the stay.

This hotel is located cattycorner to the convention center and the downtown light rail stop; within two blocks you are at the 6th Street district with its various music and food venues for most tastes and budgets, a little bit past that but still an easy walk are the downtown business and government areas; all of that making it a very good site for activity around downtown (though the site is such that the public entrances and exits face in the direction of the convention center so you get to walk around the block to get headed for most other things).

It is set up and equipped as one would expect of the Courtyard brand; not posh but well furnished and maintained. The staff has a good service orientation, arrival and departure processes and arrangements for transportation were handled efficiently.

I have observed this more frequently when staying in newer convention-district Marriott properties: two brands in the same building structure, entered through separate lobbies, so as to serve two markets. In this case this Courtyard shares its building with a Residence Inn; the Courtyard side includes meeting/activity facilities and the Champions Grill and Starbucks locations -- though with the many superior choices one has within a two to four block walk those will be likely just breakfast spots (for which Champions substitutes for the "bistro" in other newer Courtyards).

You would think to expect high quality and class with a brand name of Marriott, but this hotel went above and beyond with the way they treated us. Upon check in we were helped by "Ben" this gentlemen was a pleasure to talk with and give us advice on sights to see in town and told us to call him if we had any other questions or concerns. The rooms were your basic upgraded courtyard branded rooms, with comfy beds and plenty of space to store your luggage and other travel items. The one thing I would recommend to any courtyard brand is MORE PLUG INS, with all of the electronics that are out there you would think there would be more plug ins around the bed area, but each courtyard I have stayed at they have lacked a vast amount of plug ins. The staff was terrific greeting us even when we were leaving the hotel for the day to explore the city. I was pleasantly surprised the even the valet staff as we were walking out of the hotel greeted us with a pleasant hello or have a great day. Hard to find a hotel staff that even the valet staff will greet you with a pleasant hotel. The hotel interior had a modern sleek look to it and seemed to sparkle at every point. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for a location close to 6th street to stay here as well as a central location for all things downtown Austin.

Recently stayed here for 3 nights and cannot fault anything about this hotel. Room was spacious, comfortable and impeccably clean on arrival and throughout my stay. Hotel facilities are superb as is the location. For a tourist without transportation, everything is easily accessible on foot or by bus.

We stayed here a couple of nights, two adults and two teens. We had a spacious corner room. Hotel is impeccably clean. Staff is terrific. Location is right near the convention center and surrounded by many restaurants and stores that tourists typically need. It is within walking distance also of the 2nd Ave district and the bars and music joints. Our room was on the 11th floor with a great view of downtown. I did not use the hotel pool or fitness room but did take a look at them -- they are pretty nice. The hotel pool and fitness center are in the Residence Inn adjoining this Courtyard but there are interior doors on all levels connecting the two properties (they are really just like one big hotel). Unfortunately, only the Residence Inn guests get the free breakfast included at Champtions (a dark paneled restaurant on the ground floor. Looked nice). The Courtyard guests have to pay about $10 a person for the same meal. Our room did have a fridge and a microwave so we made use of this to store some light snacks and drinks. They also put out free coffee/tea service in the mornings in the lobby. Good wifi, free. Overall, beautiful property. Just wish we could have gotten the breakfast like they did next door.

Room Tip: Get a high room and you get a beautiful city view.
