“Great location for Austin bats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We called in and got upgraded to a suite, being Gold members in Club Carlson. The room was very comfortable, with a nice view of the river. The bat bridge was just outside, making it very convenient to access them in the evenings. The club lounge had light refreshments - sodas, tea, coffee and bottled water. The breakfast was free for all staying at the hotel but it was really underwhelming.

We had boxes and luggage to leave in our car, so we wanted a hotel that had self parking, in downtown, with good reviews. We reserved while driving in from New Orleans, and got a great rate with continental breakfast. The room and bathroom were very clean, and the Sleep Number Bed was a change from what we usually sleep on. There was renovation going on, but it was not an issue for us, except for the day when there was an alarm and announcement on our floor before mid morning. We did not try the pool, but it looked quite nice when we walked to the Congress Avenue bridge right next to the hotel to witness the bats flying out to feed. We noticed some small groups standing in the hotel's parking building watching the show as well. The young lady at the concierge desk was quite helpful on the topics we were curious about. We also were welcomed by a friendly and helpful young man who helped us with all the luggage we did not leave in the car. The hotel location is very convenient for visiting 6th street, and the really good restaurants nearby.

The staff at this hotel is very helpful and friendly, but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. I found a long, black hair IN the sheets when I pulled them back to climb in and more hair in the bathroom. I was not sure the room had been cleaned at all. It looked cleaner the next day after housekeeping came in, but my first impressions were not good. I always specifically ask for a quiet room and was put in a room in which construction was going on right next door ...very loudly at 7:00 am on Sat. morning. I did enjoy the complimentary breakfast that was provided because the restaurant was closed. The hideabed couch was very old and dingy looking;thank goodness the person sleeping on it was small enough to fit across the cushions as the actual mattress in the sleeper couch was not in good shape. The sleep number beds are great, really comfortable, and the staff is great, but this hotel,is very drab and needs to be updated badly!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the river or bridge for a great view and quiet. And ask for a higher floor...

Wonderful staff - extremely helpful and pleasant. We were, however, disappointed that we were not forewarned of the renovations and lack of a restaurant. We did buy drinks at the (temporary) bar but these were the most expensive drinks of our entire vacation. And, we do not agree with a 19 per cent gratuity being automatically added. On the plus side, great location and clean, pleasant room.

My wife and I enjoyed two nights in Austin recently and stayed at the Radisson located down the street from the state capitol. The rooms are smaller than expected, but the city view that we had was fantastic. My only complaint is that the rooms may not be finished being made up until as late as 6 pm. But the biggest and brightest thing was the helpful staff. From the valet to the front desk, we were treated very well. We would definitely stay here again.

Sleep Number Bed. Lots of pillows small and large.

Note: It is possible to walk to the state capitol from the hotel - it is straight down from the hotel. It is not necessarily advisable die to the humidity.

We stayed here for two nights, a Friday and Saturday. We found the hotel to be near enough to the bars of 6th street, 10 minute walk or thereabouts. Nearby many various eateries too with various food types eg Chinese, sushi and steaks.

The hotel has a lovely pool very modern looking with plenty of loungers. It was busy at times although we never had trouble getting a lounger and the atmosphere was relaxed with people enjoying very good poolside service and a view of the river.

Staff and concierge were very helpful as we're the staff who greeted you outside and again helped with taxis and local information. A bicycle taxi from the bars was a lovely treat at end of night and around $10.

Overall a modern hotel with a charming lounge area and a relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed our stay here and found it easy to find. You can valet park or self park which is cheaper and easy enough , on site next to the main entrance, with several levels. Austin was a great city to visit and we met loads of great friendly people. No concerns.

Room Tip: We just took the room given and it was absolutely ok.It didn't do breakfast at the time. Some ch...
