“Did Not Get Any Sleep Due To AC”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The only gripe I have with this place is that I did not get any sleep at all with the noise from the AC. The AC sounded like a generator. Actually the noise was not a problem, because I can tolerate it as background noise. However, the AC has an internal thermostat that allowed itself to automatically turn on and off. So, it woke me every time it turn on with all the noise. It was like off for 5 min, on for 30 min, off for 5 min and so on. It must have turned on/off a 100 times throughout the night. This is a bit of an exaggeration but you get the point.

if you're lucky enough to get a quieter AC, then I think you would enjoy your stay here. The bed is pretty comfy (that's a lot coming from someone who's used to a tempurpedic bed), the work desk is decent sized and bathroom is super clean. Also, if you're getting breakfast here, try the blueberry muffin, it's probably the best muffin I've ever tasted- it is super moist and not throat-constricting sweet. Or if you missed breakfast, check the front desk sitting area for leftover muffins.

I probably wouldn't return here just because I don't want to risk it and i was not able to do what I came and pay for-- sleep.

Located right next to the Capitol, this hotel is in a good place to walk to museums. Ask for directions to restaurants. If you are over 30, forget the night scene on 6th St. Nothing happening during the day. The pool was ok and a welcome relief from the intense heat. Good breakfast.

First off, this was a business trip with 9 of us spread around the hotel - so I'm rating this hotel in that context. We were there to work our showstand at SXSW.

Room, perfectly ok standrad motel room type stuff. Different rooms had quite different feels to them in terms of opening on to a walkway (much better light), or tucked away (quietness). I had masses of electronics with me, and had turned my room into a small workshop. A couple of our other rooms ended up stacked to the ceiling with event supplies - all of which the hotel took in its stride.

Breakfast - inclusive, self-service - tendancy to shoo people out rather quickly when service ended.

Reception - very, very helpful with our non-stop requests for organisational help - accepting deliveries and holding items for collection, changed arrangements etc.

Car valets - even more helpful than reception - with our constant in-and-out with vehicles, and giving us local advice.

The staff here were really knowledgable and helpful and that made an enormous difference to us having a successful SXSW.

Hotel is about 15-20 minutes walk from Austin Convention Centre, bit less to 6th Street, in a quiet and safe area.

I have stayed at many hotels in my time but this was the worst night ever. If you could sleep two hours at a time you were lucky. Between the valet guys talking and someone riving their car engine and speeding through the parking lot which made a car alarm go off. Oh and some guy screaming at 1:30 which made a dog start barking!!! Had to take advil to get through the next day!
