We stayed there over the holiday weekend (july5-7). It was very nice, the little bar in the lobby was nice and everyone there was friendly. one item which was surprising was the small size of the pool at this giant hotel. lots of things nearby, a pottery barn in the parking lot, tons of restaurants around within walking distance or a short drive. not a lot of attractions within same distance but 183 is very close and we got around to Lady Bird Lake, other restaurants very quickly.
