I have to admit, after reading some of the reviews I was concerned about staying here, but we were visiting relatives, and this was the closest hotel. I am VERY picky about where we stay, and usually select Westin, Marriott, Loews, etc., but location was important for this trip. Having spent three nights here, I really don't get all the lukewarm reviews. This is what we found:
ROOM: Clean, equipped with all necessities (not luxurious, but certainly comfortable and serviceable), comfortable bed, truly wonderful shower
STAFF: Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. No complaints.
COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST: not gourmet, but a large selection with something for everyone. There was a good selection of cereal, breads and pastries, yogurt, juice, and hot selections (bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy). Would have been nice to have some fresh fruit, but there were always apples (a chocolate chip cookies) available in the lobby.
LOCATION: I don't know why people were concerned about the neighborhood other than the hotel is set apart in a business area, not a hotel or recreational area. Seemed very safe and was quiet. The only location problem we had was that our rental car's GPS couldn't find the hotel. I would recommend you call in advance and get directions.
I would definitely recommend to a friend that they stay here unless they are looking for something romantic or special. When we are back in Austin to visit family, I won't hesitate to book here.
