The staff was really nice and the rooms seem to be newly renovated. It is really close to the Frank Erwin Center where we went to see Adele. We walked from the hotel to the concert. They did not have cookies when we checked in like most Double Tree hotels do.....I even check again before the concert.. However, thats an...

The hotel was lovely , very clean and comfortable. The staff are so friendly and helpful . A special mention for Bill and Aggie helping two Brits around Austin ! It is slightly out of town which is fine for walking around during that day but we used cabs at night. Gym was fine and we didn't use the pool...

It was a great experience. The staff was helpful and made sure that I had everything that I needed. They went beyond by asking about my Hilton Honnors member number so that I receive the appropriate level of service. The room was clean and the restaurant service was good.

This was a clean hotel, and I enjoyed it other than the pool area. This was March, which boasted temperatures of 70-80 degrees, however the pool was cold and dirty, filled with tree leaves. I was hoping to enjoy the pool and didn't realize there wasn't a hot tub. It was very disappointing.

Horrible experience with this hotel and the man at the front desk. Booked the room two weeks in advance for SXSW weekend, received a confirmation email and applied my Hilton Honor's member points. Arrived at 7:15pm to check in (I was guaranteed late check in on my confirmation), and they said they did not have my room. They SOLD my...

Clean rooms, great staff, cookies were warm and delicious. When we ordered a cab--took only minutes. Everyone was warm and friendly. Even though Austin was crowded for SXSW, this hotel was not hustle and bustle. Staff was friendly and ready to help

This facility had well designed rooms and I opened the door with my cell phone. The process was easy and convenient. The staff was very helpful and professional and I would definitely revisit this hotel.

We did a recent weekend stay during SxSWn music festival. The hotel is close to downtown, festival and 6th St but not down in the fray. It is really close to the capital, university of Texas and very close to the UT baseball stadium and we walked over and caught a game. It's an older property but the rooms have...

Even though we paid 10.00 a night for parking, there was no security and no cameras. We did have a theft of our school vehicle. The staff did their best to help us, but nothing came of the investigation.
