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.
