The hotel is what 'what you see is what you get' - a Hilton Garden Inn near the heart of downtown. What made the visit particularly great was that there was a woman named Linda (special 'ambassador' as they call them) who pointed us to good restaurants, made reservations for us, wanted our feedback (in case she wasn't familiar with a place/event), and just provided a really welcoming atmosphere. I have been to many a hotel in my life, and never have I had (except at this Austin hotel) such a warm, friendly, and helpful group of staff.
Two other redeeming qualities: (1) there is a running trail not far from there called the Red River Trail which can be accessed about 0.5 miles from the entrance of the hotel, at the Four Seasons, right by the water and (2) there is an amazing bakery/bar/beer garden (yeah, I know) behind the hotel called 'Easy Tiger' where we went for breakfast each morning (best croissants and bread) and at night for refreshments. Great atmosphere.
Oh yes, and try their orange and watermelon water...just a small detail that was really enjoyable (and doable at home).
