This is a beautifully restored historic hotel in the heart of downtown Austin. The lobby, bar, guest rooms, bathrooms, restaurants, ballrooms are gorgeously decorated and appointed with the most classic features. So classic, was their turn down with a Yellow Rose left on the bed. Just what you would expect in Texas.
It is in walking distance to the State Capital, the Capital Musuem and even the Bob Bullock Museum. All three of these are phenomenal to visit. One day, the consier drove me to the Bob Bullock Museum and then I walked back through the capital and to the hotel. Of course, this was not enough time to see the capital and the capital museum, so I walked back to those venues the next day. So beautiful!!!
The hotel restaurant has a great menu and the bar has great food, as well. And, the hotel is in walaking distance to 6th Street with all of the music and restaurants there.
