We had a Groupon and used it Saturday after Thanksgiving for one night romantic getaway. Since the groupon was only redeemable Sun - Thur, we pad the different of $77 (including all taxes). It was worth every penny!
When we arrived Saturday morning, the receptionist helped us with information where to have lunch and dinner and advised that we come back by 4pm to check in. We went to explore Oaisis and the area around and went to downtown Austin.
Around 4pm we checked in and my first impression was marvelous. I am very critical when it comes to hotels and restaurants as have been in the industry since I remember myself. In spite of the hotel being older, the rooms are very clean and don't have that feeling hotel feeling. Their lotion is very soft and non-grissy, but I found out they found now a new product to replace it. So, I am certain it will be even better. :)
Views are great. Yes, as they say, all rooms are unique and have different names on them (how cute), and all over-looking what is left of Travis lake. We stayed in the corner room in South Texas villa, I think - Fredericksburg. Lovely and bright room. Bed is so comfy, it was hard to get up!
Breakfast is served in the villa where reception desk is and it is delitious! Plenty of hot tea available and enough variety for different tastes.
We wanted to go to Oasis to watch the sunset, but from our balcony it was splendid view of the sun going down. Oh, the only downside tha travellers might find is no swimming pool and no elevators. It didn't bother us though.
Check out was great experience and we talked for a long time with Oscar (porter) and receptionist (firgive me, forgot that lovely lady name).
Overall, excellent experience and we will be back. I know we missed a groupon that just was on sale. :(
Romanic, quite, stress-free, little hidden germ in our crazy world. Great place to fall in love! Have fun!
