I attended SuperComputing'08 in Austin and booked this hotel for a government rate through the conference website. After a long day at work, then a 4 hour flight, I failed to pay close enough attention to the paperwork when I signed in and was charged a different than previously agreed upon rate. Upon check out, when I realized my error, I was only met with rudeness. I read other reviews where customers were faced with the same nefarious billing practice. While some rooms do have a lovely view of Lady Bird Lake, the bathroom tank was covered with two months of dust and the restaurant coffee mugs arrive with old lipstick on them. I would dissuade anyone from staying at this hotel. I am upset enough that I still, after almost year, feel this review is necessary.
