This is the best hotel in Austin. There are a couple other hotels which come close, but this one is classy and very hip which sets it apart.
I was lucky enough to stay in a corner suite. My bathtub had a view of the skyline and my living room and bedroom had a lake view. The bathtub is open to the living room, so this suite is only good for couples. It was an amazing suite, I highly recommend it.
The staff is incredible. It was a special occasion (first night without the new baby) and they gave my husband and I champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and a onesie for the little one. It was so unexpected and kind of them.
The "Living Room" bar is the hippest bar in Austin. Austin is very laid back but everyone dresses to the nines at this bar. The cocktails are not cheap, but you are paying for quality and for the atmosphere.
The location is A+. 2nd street has a lot of great restaurants and is a safe area of downtown. Check out the nearby Violet Crown Cinema for a unique movie experience. Taverna across the street has great Italian food and is famous for their Sunday brunch. ($1 mimosas and bellinis!)
This is a great hotel for out of town guests (especially those looking to impress) or for locals to enjoying a "staycation".
PS - this review was way overdue, but better late than never!
