“Superb hotel...clean, many extra amenities and awesome staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

I stayed here with a friend for graduation time in early June. Our room was clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. There is a kitchenette with some extras and a comfortable sitting area. The beds were very comfortable, I slept like a baby. We were pleasantly surprised to find complimentary dinner Monday-Thursday as well as complimentary breakfast. The breakfast bar included eggs, omelets, waffles, bagels, fresh fruit and yogurt, cereal and different kinds of bread for toasting. I was impressed! Not just that but the staff was so friendly, everyone wore a smile. Oh, also FREE Starbucks all day long! We had to check out early so I could catch a flight and the staff actually prepared the food a little earlier than normal so that we could eat before we left and enjoy some hot coffee. Pinch me, will you? I mean really I must say that this hotel was, while not overtly fancy, was in my opinion one of the best I have ever stayed. There is a fitness area and a small pool area. My only regret was that my stay wasn't a little longer...I could get used to that!! :)

We recently stayed at the Hyatt House for one night during Memorial Day weekend. It was a large property with several buildings, but we were lucky enough to get a room on the second floor in the same building as the front desk. Check-in was frustrating as the front desk worker was attending to other business for close to 10 minutes before they attended to us... I would not normally care but it was about midnight and we were tired from driving about 7 hours after work and just wanted to call it a night.

The room, which was a studio suite was a good size. The property had a dated feel to it compared to the then-Summerfield Suites we stayed in in Sandy, Utah in 2010. Hyatt House is a continuation of the Summerfield brand by Hyatt. Still, the studio was a good size and breakfast was ok. I like these style of hotels as they provide you a mini-kitchen and a separate seating area, I find it preferable to other types of hotels, so on road trips or even on longer vacations, we tend to look for these type of properties.

The location is good in NW Austin. It puts you not too far from great attractions like Lake Travis (and of course the Arboretum). We've stayed several times at the Staybridge Suites near Anderson Mill further up 183, but based on price we chose this location. They are comparable properties and not too far from each other in NW Austin. I would choose between the properties based on price. I do recommend staying in NW Austin though on your trip.

We stayed at this hotel on May 18-20th for our daughter's graduation at UT. It's just a few miles from downtown, but there are restaurants and lots of shopping around it. just off the highway and convenient to all areas. We liked the suite. The hotel is dated but many areas have been refurbished and all looks clean and nice. The suites are comfortable, and include a kitchen with all the utensils you need. We were 3 in the room and it wasn't crowded. Our friends and family stayed there as well and we were told that their rooms had a different layout and were not as nice, however clean. I loved being nestled among greenery and trees. Staff was very helpful, and the included breakfast had a variety. This hotel also serves appetizers in the evening during the week, along with beer and wine. In all, I was pleased with this property. We paid a very good rate as well. Something like $115.00 for the suite. I recommend it.

I recommended this place for a friend coming into town with her extended family.

Nice features of this hotel include:

1. Free breakfast - Nice if you have a large crew you are trying to accommodate.
2. The rooms are modern and clean - and in a semi-residential area.
3. Mopac (Loop 1), 183 and Loop 360 are easily accessible from here.

They were mainly interested in shopping and this place is great for that.

It is close to: The Domain (Mall) and Gateway Center. (Whole Foods, Old Navy, Nordstroms Rack, Container Store, Taco Cabana)
It is also very close to restaurants.



Whole Foods is nearby as well.

Really enjoyed staying at the Hyatt house. The accommodations were spacious. We had a two bedroom unit, with king sized beds, a sofa bed, and 3 flat screen tvs. The kitchen was huge and nicely equipped. The location was great around many stores and restaurants. The breakfast was very good and the staff professional and gracious.

No complaints. Hotel is easy to find on Mopac, and easy enough to get to (start up the hill, then u-turn). Buildings are in good shape. The faintest smell of smoke from previous incarnations of this hotel still lingers in a few places. Room was excellent size; great use of space with bookcase and spinning TV making half-wall to separate living area from "bedroom". Love the full kitchen; that's a great touch for anyone looking for more than just a bed for a few hours. The breakfast was *extremely* popular on a Saturday morning, so it could use a little more attention for replenishing the hot food items.

Excellent service - e.g., coffee and fruit are available all day, but when they were gone, the receptionist no only refilled the food but offered to have it delivered to our room in another building. Breakfast is only available until 9:00 AM during the week - arrive by 8:30 AM to ensure variety of food and dinnerware are still available.

Room numbers are very similar in the different buildings so it would be helpful to have signage indicating which rooms are in which buildings. The laundry is not in the main building so directions would be helpful.

The room contents were not "brand new", but new enough for the value. However, we had a discount due to a family reunion so this probably affected our opinion.

Bottom line: We would certainly recommend the Hyatt as a moderately priced residence, especially if the location is helpful for your stay.

Room Tip: Choose top floor away from the elevator if noise is a problem (true for any residence). First floor...
