We frequently stay at La Quinta wherever we go, but this was the first time we stayed at this particular hotel. The room was exactly what I expect out of La Quinta - clean with the essentials, but not a lot of extras.
This hotel is setup strangely with a courtyard in the middle where the parking/parking garage is. Our room faced the courtyard and it was loud a few times because of this. (There was a biker rally in Austin during our stay, so that didn't help any.) Also, it is valet only so it will cost you an additional $13 a night on top of your room rate. Valet can be slow and get backed up, so be sure to allow plenty of time to get your car when you're ready to leave.
The best part of this hotel is the location. It is within easy walking distance to the capital and to 6th street. We walked to both on Friday night and felt very safe.
Since this hotel is downtown, beware of street closures. We had a difficult time getting to the hotel due to 11th street being closed. Luckily, it opened back up soon after we got to the area, otherwise I'm not sure how we would have made it to the hotel.
