“A bit dated, but a nice hotel in a nice area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

My small family (3) stayed at this hotel for a conference my wife had there. The rooms are fairly large. Hotel grounds and location are excellent for anyone "stuck" while a significant other is in meetings. Bakery/snack area in lobby is affordable and convenient. Hotel is attached to the Arboretum shopping center (with several dining options) and has a nice little pond with ducks and geese in a mini-nature trail. Good for a curious 4 year old - gives him something to do other than watch TV!

I still have issues with hotels charging for services that should be free (internet, use of business center), but they also have complimentary self-parking (just be careful not to park under a large tree - lots of birds will leave "presents" for you if you do!)

I heard staff talking about a complete renovation coming soon. That should take care of the dated feel that the hotel has. Overall, very nice staff, spacious rooms, great location - I would return!

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the elevator, otherwise, you'll have quite a hike to your room, since there...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here five nights for a conference. The hotel personel was very nice and helpful. The rooms are large and clean, the bathroom is slightly outdated but still very clean.

The food that they served during breakfast and lunch was of very good quality. There are quite a lot of good quality restaurants within walking distance for dinner if you like.

The only drawback was that I had a connecting room, which always is a bit more noisy.

From the time you arrive to the time you exit, the staff are always firendly and attentive which is a real plus. This is one of the hotel's with the huge internal attrium which gives a huge feeling of space. There are lot's of places to sit and have a chat or a drink.

I stayed recently for 2 nights whilst attending a workshop at the hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean, with good aircon and a comfortable bed. The bathroom is an adequate size with a small provision of basic amenities. The fitness centre is a modest size with a good selection of weight machines and a reasonable selection of electronic equipment.

I did not eat at any of the restuarants nor use room service so I cannot comment on the ,meals. I can however recommend the "Corner Bakery Cafe" which is a short walk out from the front of the hotel. The service here was exceptional and the food amazing. Well worth a walk !

I spoke at a meeting held in this hotel and would come back in a minute. Friendly, helpful staff throughout the hotel and, happily, great casual dining. Thanks to all for a great stay and highly successful meeting.

After a long day visiting UT, we were pleasantly surprised to arrive at the Renaissance Austin. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the college crowd, but had plenty of shopping and dining options nearby. The staff was friendly, and the room was clean and comfortable. The unique interior design was fun and interesting.

If you are traveling to North Austin and need a great hotel to take a break from your business trip or having a conference, the Renaissance Austin really does it right. The decor is older but very nice and well taken care of. The interior design of the hotel with its open atrium architecture is very unique and interesting.

Every time I go the service is impeccable and you rally can't go wrong here. The bar is enjoyable in the even and attracts an interesting crowd of travelers. Good restaurants abound nearby as well.

Staff are always pleasant and helpful from the doormen to housekeeping. Rooms are clean and spacious. Great workout room, pool inside and out with ample seating. Sauna also but didn't use. Lots of great places to eat within walking distance so never ate at hotel!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 7th floor and faced the front of the hotel. Quiet and nice view.
