I was in town for some seminars at the University of Texas (Austin) Professional Development Center. Other properties are closer, but I like the Arboretum area. This Residence Inn is co-located with a Marriott Courtyard. They are both tucked in an out-of-the way area and not highly visible (but are very quiet). They both have quick access to either Mo-Pac or Research Blvd. The Residence Inn itself is very nice. The Front Desk staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The property is well kept and also very quiet. The breakfast meals were pretty standard, but the Monday through Thursday Manager events were better than average. The meals were more unique and the dining area was always well maintained. If you wish to dine out, the Arboretum area has changed as the Domain has expanded, but Baby A's, Cheesecake Factory, North-By-Northwest and other restaurants are nearby. Of course, there is a wide selection of the trendiest restaurants and shops at the still not far away Domain. I have previously stayed at the nearby full-service Renaissance Arboretum (with a nice Concierge Lounge and free room Wi-Fi for Platinum members), but I like the larger rooms, easy in-out access, close parking, and quietness at this well-managed Residence Inn.
