I was attending a conference in Austin and picked this hotel as it was near the convention center. In fact it is literally 3 minutes walk to the place. Nice welcome at check-in. I got one of the corner rooms which was a nice size and had a (little) view of the river. Hotel provides a complimentary breakfast which was fine: eggs, sausage, cereals, breads, waffles, yoghurt and fruit. Evening reception (Mon - Thurs) offered beer, wine and snacks. This area is located on 2nd floor and has a balcony which was nice. Small pool and fitness center is located on 4th floor. Short walk to the famous 6th street where of course you will find the bars and restaurants. I had brunch on the Sunday at the Moonshine Bar & Grill which is a short walk from hotel - very popular and busy spot. Checking out early I was pleasantly surprised to find they had complimentary "breakfast to go" at the reception desk - nice touch. Overall excellent hotel fro it's location and service.
