This is the main hotel I stay at in Austin because I have status membership with Hyatt. I would highly recommend looking at other choices.
The wifi is painfully slow, but that's the case at most hotels. The hot breakfast buffet is ridiculously expensive, $17.50. Parking is $14 a day. The view of bat bridge is mediocre, even the receptionist said so herself. The bats fly away from the hotel and at night, it's very hard to see without actually being on the bridge.
Also, bring earplugs because the way the hotel is built, it's very resonant. You can always hear the lobby very loudly, and its especially bad on the lower floors.
The hot water tends to fade in and out, but it always comes back as long as you leave the shower on for long enough; not very eco-friendly. Also, my sheets have some stains on them.
The location however is great. The gorgeous walking path along the river is right outside of the hotel. Great for exercising.
Overall, the amenities are not at all impressive. There are much better hotels that are a reasonable drive north on IH-35. The Doubletree there for example is under $100 a night, with a complimentary cooked to order breakfast buffet and free parking.
