We were searching for a place to stay in Austin & wanted something around the Downtown area. We read some of the reviews and figured we would give this place a try, and after talking to some friends who live in Austin & told us that they know many people who have stayed here, we figured we would give it a try. We did notice some of the reviews were unhappy with the "condition" of the hotel, that alarmed us a little but we figured we'd give it a try considering the location, recommendations from locals, and the price (pre-booked and was given a good rate).
When we got there we were greated by friendly staff & a clean, modern, & welcoming lobby. We were told we had been upgraded to a room with a lake view-AWESOME! We got to the room and were VERY satisfied with what we saw, the room was spacious, clean, with a mini fridge, & the view of the lake was SPECTACULAR. I can't say one negative thing about the room or our dealings with any of the staff, including the bartender. The hotel does offer shuttle service to the airport & certain areas. We had our own vehicle so we didn't really need the shuttle but the one time we tried to use it, they were doing a airport run & it would be an hours wait. We decided to just call a cab. The free parking garage was a very nice touch-most big city hotels tend to charge ridiculous amounts for parking. There is a food truck park next to the hotel but we never saw where it was open (am or pm)???? We enjoyed our stay here & we consider this our "go to" Austin hotel.
