I chose this hotel for its great proximity to Zilker Park for the recent ACL Festival - it is the closest place to stay, and a great quick walk there. So in that regard, this place can't be beat.
It seems like a selling point that it has a little efficiency kitchenette with a counter and chairs to sit at.. It was stocked with a few pots and pans, flatware and dishes, working fridge, two burner cooktop, some dishtowels and a little packet of dish soap - it comes with everything you should need - but has a kind of run down look that makes you feel like it isn't really clean.
The room was pretty clean, bed and bedding ok, no sign of any bugs. Bathroom was clean, but the toilet made a LOUD noise about half the times it was flushed. The shower was clean, good water pressure, plenty of hot water. Towels were scratchy low quality, I did get one bar of soap and a little tube of shampoo. The hook on the back of the bathroom door was barely hanging on, so no place to hang a towel - not very environmentally friendly to just throw it on the floor!
The décor of hallways (big stains on the carpeting) elevators, and lobby just seemed cheap and run down. For 229 per night, it was no bargain, especially since the Sheraton Capital was only 179 (although that luxury was just too far to walk from ACL). Next time I'll stay nicer and take a cab!
