I only spent one night in the Springhill Suites South Austin and it was an off weekend, so other than families traveling together, they were not busy at all. No South-By or some other monster conference so rates were around $120 a night.
The room was functional, with a couch and living area on one side and the bed and whirlpool tub on the other. The tub is not actually in the bathroom, but right at the foot of the bed. Kind of odd but nice for a romantic stay. I think we wound up with this room as we wanted a king bed. The tub was pretty comfy. The bathroom has a separate shower. The TV is awkwardly placed on a dresser between the two parts of the room, so you can turn it to face the couch or the bed.
They do have free wifi and free breakfast. The breakfast area definitely gets crowded so go down early.
Location is south Austin right on the interstate and Ben White. It's a quick drive to the airport but not so quick to downtown if you drive between 8:00 and 10:00am. Austin traffic on I-35 is a nightmare. If you stay here and need to get downtown during rush hour get on Ben White (71) west and go north on South Congress or 1st street.More
