Booked this hotel for a weekend getaway. Through my own error, I booked the second night, but not the first! When I arrived at the hotel, the deskstaff was very kind, and was able to clear up the confusion. Unfortunately, I ended up paying an extra $10 per night since the rate I thought I found was just an online rate. (Note to self: double check dates when making online reservations!)
Even at the lesser rate, the room was something of a disappointment. The room was clean and neat, but rundown. Plus, anytime I get a room and there's a burned out light, that always sets a bad start.
The Hampton continental breakfast was not bad: french toast sticks, sausage, biscuits, assorted cereals, juice and coffee. There was an attendant making sure all remained stocked up.
The location was in the Arboretum area. I wasn't familiar with the area, and learned that it is on the far north side of Austin. Fine if you need to be on the northside of Austin, but not so good if you are planning to visit Austin proper. (By the way, I thought Arboretum meant an area full of trees, plants and flowers. In this case, it appears to mean a large, upscale shopping center.)
So, the hotel was less that what I had hoped for, based on other Hamptons I've visited. I'll not likely stay here again.
