I have made many trips to this part of Austin over the years and by far this is my favorite property to stay at when I'm in town. The staff is always welcoming, they pay attention to details and the property is generally very clean. The mix between focus on providing a business friendly atmosphere and a resort like recreational environment really makes this property a gem. The rooms are on par with other Renaissance properties, they do have some with great views towards downtown and a few very nice suites. The executive lounge provides a nice place for those with access to relax and unwind or get ready for the day. This hotel is a bit different than most other Renaissance properties I've been in around the world. It has a huge atrium with several areas you can relax in (bar, coffee bar, piano area, etc) and some pretty massive fish tanks to sit and enjoy. The pool area is smaller than most but typically is not crowded. The gym is nice and functional. Most of all, if you have a room on the upper floors the place is very quiet. I've stayed at this hotel for over 60 nights in the past few years and each time I have had a quite, restful stay where I could work and "play" as I wanted or needed.
