Despite bump on first night, enjoyed hotel overall.
First time traveling with our one year old child and first time staying in a suite room. It's great with a fridge and microwave which is great for those huge Texas portion leftovers you get in every restaurant. No need for it to go to waste. Plus, anytime you want free fruit or coffee, they're always available in the lobby.
Austin is not a walking city, so being in a central area is not important as it would be in New Orleans for example. Glad we chose this one over the north location too since it seems to be better for getting around quicker due to being near freeways.
Now to my bump- the first night we were there we were exhausted after all the flying we did to get there since we are coming from far away. At 1:30am on May 4th, the fire alarm went off in the whole hotel. Not wanting to take chances, we quickly got out fast and went to the parking lot as most guests did. It took 20 minutes for the hotel people to figure out it was a false alarm.
I'm not blaming the staff for this, but I has hoping aside from saying 'sorry' they would throw in a tad of a discount or something to compensate for getting us out of bed at that ungodly hour!!
Overall, I would return to this chain though with family in tow.
