We had stayed at this hotel in October 2012 and it was a great place to stay. This year we made the trip to Austin for my son's graduation. I booked my room in early February for a one bedroom suite with a sleep sofa in the living room. We had a 15 hour drive from Montgomery, Alabama and our arrival would be late. I had telephoned the hotel and spoke with the front desk to let them know we would be a late arrival. I had secured the room with my credit card. We arrive at 11:00 pm only to find we had a regular room. They were totally booked. My brother spent Saturday night on the floor. I was given $20 off this night and the next night my brother was given a room for his 4 days at no additional charge. This was nice, however, I booked a suite with a separate bedroom. I did not like when my son and his girlfriend visited everyone had to sit on the bed. I booked a suite so we could have dinner in our room as a family some nights. I was so disappointed that we had to sit on the bed and floor. The manager at this hotel is rude. He informed me they overbook. I didn't like his attitude and tone. I must say there are several employees who work the front desk that have great customer service, nice and helpful. Jessica is just a sweetheart. The room was clean and nice.
When you book a room and secure with a credit card you should get the room you booked, especially when a call was made advising time of arrival. If they were worried about no show.....charge my credit card!
