I went up to Austin for a 1 night event and got a good deal on a room here. It was listed as 3 1/2 stars but deserves only 3 at best.
The Desk Clerk was polite and efficient and the room was clean except for the leaky toilet and poorly installed shower head.
The plumbing and tile had a vintage 80's appeal and the toilet was seeping water from the bottom so I called maintenance because of the shower head which was spraying water sideways at the connection to the hand held device. They promptly reattached the shower head which continued to leak, but just not as bad.
The TV was a flat screen but the aspect ratio was distorted on all network stations but perfect for the pay stations, go figure.
Austin already has high prices for hotels and during events there are no discounts. Since I am willing to pay Austin prices, I will not stay here again.
