The photos do not do this hotel justice. I absolutely recommend it. We just went this weekend where everything in Austin was practically sold out due to graduation at UT. We found the Hyatt Place through AMEX Platinum Travel and I paid in advance. I was surprised how close it was to 6th street and how nice it was inside. The woman at the front desk and I'm so sorry I forgot her name was so professional and pleasant.
Our room was extremely clean and every plug was in the right place for all of our devices. WIFI is free which we just loved as well. The bed was comfortable and all was great. Outside of the hotel we took a bicycle taxi...a rickshaw to our restaurant reservation which was only a few blocks away. After dinner we walked back as it was extremely convenient.
The only downside was on Saturday morning there was a jackhammer going off at a nearby construction site at 6:30 am!!! Of course the hotel had no control over this but seriously, the city shouldn't allow this on weekends until after 9 am at least.
Breakfast buffet was fantastic with hot and cold items to eat. A great choice of items.
