The Four Seasons Austin is a nice hotel with beautiful grounds set at the edge of Town Lake. You can't do anything ON Town Lake...no swimming, boating, etc, which is actually nice because your views are of a quiet, 'uninterrupted' lake.
The room are nice, with very comfortable beds, but the furniture itself is not remarkable. I've stayed in nicer Four Seasons rooms. One thing I didn't like is the shower...it has half a glass door, so you don't get quite warm like you do with a full panel or curtain...always a bit of a cold breeze!
The bar/cafe is expensive, but this is a Four Seasons. I can understand an $18 hamburger and a $48 brunch at a resort destination, but in Austin it's a little rediculous. (If you want a fantastic hambuger...go to Huts off 6th street.)
The pool is also not very impressive. A small circular shaped pool with no waterfalls, pretty decor, etc. Just a pool, basically.
So what makes it a good choice to stay in at Austin? The Four Seasons service for one. Also the grounds are very pretty, it's a quiet hotel, AND they will have what sounds like an awesome Spa opening in July 2007. It's in a good location downtown, with just about a $3 to $5 cab fare to get you to 6th Street and other restaurants/nightlife.
