Great location in the heart of Austin. Very modern decor and staff is very professional. The general manager, Joanna Mccreary, of this hotel will go out of her way to make sure you enjoy your stay. I highly recommend this property. This property is a great addition to the American Express Fine Hotels and resorts program!

Georgetown, Texas2 contributions
I arrived tired, traveling from Dubai and it was close to a restaurant I haven’t eatin at in four years. Around 1am-2am I was searching for the hotel in booking but was unable to find it. The front desk was operating personnel was nice but didn’t tell me the price was 525. He did tell Me I have to check out by 12 so being tired from the flight I was able to sleep from around 2am until 8am when I left to return to Georgetown. During the night and morning I can hear in between the walls couples having intercourse. I didn’t know I was going to pay this much I wouldn’t have stayed here. I got the bill on my debit card and called about the over price but no help occurred. I paid 525 for 5.5 hours of rest without anyone telling me this price. I think the hotel isn’t that great and I recommend other locations.

I came in and micky right away came to me with a hustle I haven't seen in a long time. His way of organizing and the way he presented himself put a smile on my wife's face and mine. Then Mary and sederk made me feel like a vip with the way the presented service to us. I watch them handle other cars aswell and it was Dynamite. Who ever is leading this team should be proud. Because me and and my wife was beyond impressed. 10 stars
