The title says it all really.
The room: Modern - I was staying with a bunch of friends, so the clear shower door in full view from the entranceway was a little ... uncomfortable
Staff: Helpful and friendly with a seemingly endless supply of bandaids for us girls in heels. I like their check-in/check-out process; it was easy and casual.
Location: Well, if you don't want to rent a car in Austin, this is where you should stay. Walking distance or a short cab ride to anything downtown you want to visit. We walked mostly everywhere and did much of our nights out in the Warehouse District - go to Six Lounge for a cheap table service.
Pool: We spent our daytimes here; it's interesting how such a large hotel has SUCH a small pool! Also, the drinks were extravagantly pricey (the bartenders were very cool though). And the security at the door doesn't let you bring in your own alcohol. Early in the morning, hotel guests come out and reserve layout chairs for themselves. If you get out there late, you're not getting a seat. Pool was pretty but cramped. Our bachelorette party was surrounded by at least 3 bachelor parties.
