This is a good hotel in Austin, Texas. Hotel staff were very pleasant, attentive, and accommodating. The building is somewhat older, but the interior is well maintained. Some of the rooms have partial views (you can see a little over half the frontage) of the capital building, which are particularly impressive after dark. The room I stayed in was a suite and very large and comfortable. An iron and ironing board was available. The TV was equipped with DirectTV, with a good channel selection. Electric outlets were inset on the side of the desk and a nightstand by the bed. The bed also had a remote control panel for room lighting that was convenient. The king-sized bed had at least 12 pillows, which I find really annoying. There's no place to put them to stay clean and it seem like a waste to throw them on the floor. The bathroom was well furnished and had a very nice selection of convenience items. The WiFi was not complementary, nor was breakfast, which I find consistent, but strange for higher priced hotels. There was free coffee in the lobby in the morning.
- 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
