We just returned from a long weekend at this property. Although the hotel is undergoing renovations, the noise levels were minimal. A nice touch - was in each room, was a plastic hardhat and inside was a split of wine, chocolate, and tylenol with a cute note about the renovations. What nice touch!!
This was our first time in Austin, and even though we had printed 'mapquest' directions and 'google maps' we asked the front desk staff for directions - and they gave us easier and better ones!
The hotel room was fresh and clean smelling.... no mustiness or staleness, as were the corridors - all fresh smelling.
The hotel is 5-10 minutes from the Domaine Shopping area - nice mix of shops (up scale and moderate) cafes/restaurants, apartments. Right across the street is another moderate shopping center - the Gateway. There are several restaurants within a 5 minute drive - Marie Callendars/ Baby A's (Mex-Tex), Iron Cactus, and North by Northwest.
It is about a 20 minute drive to downtown Austin - BUT that would depend on the time of day, traffic etc.
Should we have the need to visit Austin again, we would have no problem staying here again.
