We stayed one night in the senator suite, the room was elegant and beautiful. The location of the hotel is right downtown, easy walking distance to restaurants, music clubs, shopping, etc. We ate lunch and breakfast at the hotel, both meals were way above average, well prepared and tasty. The breads there are a real treat. We also went to the bar for happy hour, which was $4 margaritas that night and half off appetizers, with a live band, had a great time before heading out to 6th street to go to some music venues. This is where I will stay when I come to Austin.
