Our trip to Austin, Texas was a recreational trip to see the MotoGP races that we normally attend in Indianapolis. The Hyatt Place's location was conveniently off IH 35, about 20-30 minutes from the airport and although it's not in the downtown area, it's close enough to get there. Our check in was great. The staff was wonderful. Our room was nice and comfortable and served it's purpose for our stay. It was a delight to have free WiFi where I was able to log on and get some work done with my feet up in the lounge area of the suite. In the lounge are (as I call it) there is a pull out sofa and in the corner there is a desk where you can set up your laptop and get work done if you need to. There is also a refrigerator under the sink but no freezer section. There is an Applebees a few feet away from the hotel where we walked to have lunch after we checked in. The first night was quite interesting as it seemed like we were sharing the room with a crying and very vivacious Ethan. His mother kept calling his name to stop whatever he was doing as he would scream, cry and whatever else. Thanks be to God they only stayed that one night. Our first morning as we prepared to leave for the Circuit Of The Americas race track, we noticed that there were people having breakfast, as we entered the area, we noticed that the food had been cleared. However, the staff were on it asking if we needed anything but we knew it was over and said no. We asked what the hours were and they said that it ended at 10 am (which was great). We drove to Denny's which was also close by and conveniently located in the direction to the track. Our second night was a quiet and restful one. The next morning, we decided to have breakfast. We arrived on time and everything was out and looked great. Although the food seemed to be under the warm light, the eggs were cold, the pancakes were tiny and hard (some minor changes needs to be made). Thank goodness they had cereal, fresh fruits, pastries, oatmeal, English muffins and a variety of sliced bread - there were choices. I must say that we're grateful that they have complementary breakfast.
After an exhausting day, we headed back to the hotel and crashed. We decided to order from the Gallery Restaurant which is located in the hotel. We placed the order by calling the front desk. Since they do not do room service, they called us when it was ready so that we could pick it up and take it back to our room which was fine by us. The food was surprisingly reasonably priced and delicious. On Sunday, we headed to the track for the official race. After the race, we drove to the downtown area on Congress Ave to Sixth Avenue and enjoyed dinner at El Mercado Restaurant and Cantina. We went to Amy's Ice Cream on 1300 Congress Avenue which was a treat. All about five minutes away from the Hyatt Place where we stayed. By the way, the hotel has an outdoor pool and we saw some people swimming but we did not get a chance to take a dip.Over all, we had a fun time.
