The quality of the accomadations is quite good -- clean, not crowded. Our room faced 15th Street which made for interesting views but a lot of noise, 24 hours a day (!) from the street -- traffic, and sirens. Oh, the sirens! 15th Street is a major traffic artery in the Capitol area, so every emergency responder is going to use that street, sirens roaring.
The hotel is useful if you have business in the Texas state Capitol campus, which is a five-minute walk from the hotel. But, you are going to pay a hefty price for the location.
Parking is $20 a day extra, though you have in-and-out privileges. No breakfast is included, but if you eat what they offer (a standard continental breakfast AND eggs, bacon, sausage) you are going to pay a price that in other parts of the city will purchase you a 12-ounce T-bone dinner with baked potato and salad.
Those on Capitol business may find the location justifying the hefty prices. Others should look to hotels along the I35 corridor.
