The SFA (as they told me in their Tweet) is a very nice upscale hotel in the heart of Downtown Austin. Convenient for 6th Street and the Capitol. The staff were excellent at all points, very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is more European in style and all fittings are of high quality.
The pool was undergoing refurbishment at the time but the area with the gym was very nicely done.
All in all, an excellent stay. Well done to all the staff,
- 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
