This is a fabulous Residence Inn. It is outside of the downtown core & traffic is sometimes horrible, but we loved the location & were very happy with this property. Parking was free and plentiful. There were lots of restaurants in the area. Our 4th floor room was quiet and had a great view of the lights of the city...

Good place to stay about 4 miles north of downtown. It is very easy to locate as it is right near the freeway. They offer a free small breakfast in the morning with nice options. All the staff were very welcoming. Of course since it is a residence inn it has all the conveniences of a small apartment. Great deal...

The Highlander refused to honor a pre-paid reservation. You accepted the priceline relocation. We experienced a luxurious night in a wonderful hotel. My husband and I both with we could have stayed another day and fully enjoyed the event.

This is my second time in Austin for medical reasons. By far this hotel has been an outstanding place to park my bags and be catered to. There were four of us so we had a two bedroom, living room, dining area, full kitchen. Each room had a full bath stocked with everything we needed. The quality of bath sheets,...

This was my first stay at a Residence Inn. Was here for an extended stay of several weeks. I got to know the staff and the rhythm of the property.

Easy drive to the university (and/or stadium if you're going to a game). Within a shopping center full of good options for dining (although it's doubtful you'll need the Home Depot). It's just down the street from an HEB that's open til midnight. Our room was clean, although the light fixture plugs by the bed don't work, so make sure...

This hotel is new, well kept and in a nice area of Austin. I like that it is in a shopping center; no need to drive when Marshall's, Old Navy, Best Buy, Five Below, ice cream shop, Frost Bank, etc are all within walking distance. And lots of food options near by. The Smashburger right behind the restaurant is good....
