My daughter has attended UT for 4 years and we have stayed in about 12 different hotels in Austin. Yes this place is a little hard to find even though it is 2 blocks off 35.. yes the kitchenettes are dated, yes the beds are a little hard....but the negatives stop there. The place is like a jungle oasis. There are lime trees, fig trees, blackberry bushes, a tree shaded pool/patio area and so many flowering plants. When we checked in I misread the breakfast times and showed up at 9:10 and breakfast was gone (sniff)..but Maudie and her sons took care of my husband and I, by bringing the eggs, sausage and biscuits back out so we didn't have to go out for breakfast- now that is IMPRESSIVE service! The next morning we made it to breakfast on time and had our choice of organic fruits and organic yogurt, vegetarian sausage, turkey sausage, organic eggs, filtered water and lots of other choices. There is also an afternoon happy hour with hummus, dolmas, crackers and cheese, wine and beer. The place adhered to quiet, non smoking non pets- which is great for allergy sufferers. There were even real ivy plants in the room. We will overlook the hard beds and stay there again, because it truly is an oasis in the big city!
