Unfortunately I am writing this from another hotel since they were fully booked for the rest of my stay at SxSW.
Brand new, quiet rooms in the thick of downtown with everyone from the bellman to room service giving prompt, efficient and friendly service.
I would especially like to single out Marissa at the front desk who did her best to find me a room so that I wouldn't have to change hotels and always greeted my party with a smile. When I phoned home I was so effusive in my praise of the front desk staff my wife accused me of having a crush.
The second floor bar is great as well but it is small - so when the town is full like for South By you may have to go elsewhere. But other than that it was great place to stay my thanks to the staff for being so accommodating when my other reservation fell through.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Keeping it weird in style ever since we opened in 1924, thanks to the people of Austin who funded our construction! When we opened we were the tallest building in Austin at 10 stories tall. We have gotten a little taller, 15 stories currently, but the city has grown up around us over the years making us a hidden gem in the heart of downtown. We are located 1 block from 6th street, 3 blocks from the Capitol and walking distance to all the activities that make Austin the amazing city that it is. If you are looking for the true experience of Texas and Austin book a room with us. ... more less
