Stayed for 3 nights on business. Comfortable room, well equipped and modern, spacious bathroom. Good bar and nice to have the terrace where you can sit outside in the evening. Long thin pool, though you'd struggle if there were two of you in together! Overall very good, I'd happily stay there again.

Hello and thank you for taking time to leave those very gracious comments! It's true, our lap pool is "thin".....we will be undergoing a renovation of our pool and health club areas next month, and even though the lap pool will stay the same, I do hope we are able to welcome you back to see the new changes!

Thank you again!

Hotel has been recently refreshed. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Service impeccable. Excellent location. On site restaurant very good. Recommend fish tacos. Only suggestion - courtesy car for short trips from hotel, as hi temps cause most to wilt.

Was in town for business, only one night but it was a good stay. I slept well. Decent accomodations, nice staff, top notch for Austin Texas. Valet guys do a great job. Only a block away from many restaurants as well. I recomend it if you are ever in Austin overnight.

I didn't stay at this hotel, but I visited the bar for drinks with a coworker. We had spotted the Terrace Bar on a previous trip and wanted to check it out. The bartender, Taylor, was very friendly and helpful. They have a broad selection of drinks and nice wine list. The atmosphere was great to enjoy a glass of wine outside on the terrace overlooking the capitol and the chairs/couches are very comfortable.

Overall it was a nice experience and will return on future trips.

Stayed at the SFA for business meeting. The room was great. Upgraded to a suite. No complaints.

The meetings rooms were fine. The breakfasts and lunch provided were great.

Would choose SFA whenever visiting Austin.

We failed to make reservations, but the staff at the front desk were able to find us a room. The room was small and extremely nice and comfortable. We visited a local street event a few blocks away and had an amazing weekend out of town. We would highly recommend this older, but refurished hotel. It's a landmark hotel, elegant and affordable.

Room Tip: Make reservations ahead of time. We could have had a bigger room if we had booked ahead of time.

Our first (and lovely room) on the 9th floor was right next to the elevators. While resting in the room we heard a consistent clack-clack-clack as one of the elevators moved up and down. No way to sleep with that going on. Upon request the front desk quickly and graciously moved us to another, larger room which was even nicer than our first. Our two-day stay in this hotel was terrific. We were warmly greeted by all the staff we met. The location was excellent for seeing the sights of downtown Austin.
