“An Oasis!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Tucked neatly under the 183 flyby. This location is quiet and feels secluded but has easy access to 183 and the city.
Once you step inside the elegant lobby there is comfortable seating for lounging and guest computers for your convenience.
Leaving the lobby area is where the real Oasis begins. The heated indoor pool and sauna and cafe, take up the enterior of the main floor. Glass elevator overlooking the atriums interior, transport you to you floor. All the rooms surround and open onto the atrium. For me It has the wonderful vibe of an Oasis. and the rooms are well maintained and nicely appointed. The staff could not be more helpful or pleasant. This is my favorite place to stay when visiting Austin whether for business or pleasure.

We choose this Hotel cause it had an inside Pool and we took our Granddaughter to Austin to visit the state capitol and parks in the area, Pool was nice being inside cause in Texas you never know from hour to hour what kind of weather you may have, this way there was no reason we could not swim and enjoy ourselves swimming which made a very pleasant stay and enjoyed the sauna.

Room Tip: If I was to book this hotel again I would think real hard if they were booked and only a few rooms l...

Great location which is convenient to the expressway and eating locations. The hotel is large in atmosphere due to the atrium gives a nice differnence compared to others. At night, it is very dark inside the atrium. The inside pool was a added surprise. The breakfast buffet was average - it got crowed which created a problem for seating.

what started out as a mistake I made in reserving this room was quickly corrected by the clerk at the front desk. Once that was taken care of, we went to our our room and to our surprise we was being escorted to the room and the door opened by the escort. The next four days was like being at home, started every morning with a super breakfast and return to a clean room. Will stay here again when in Austin.

Nice hotel, comfortable room, everything in working order, convenient location (five minute drive to downtown). The staff did their job, although not going out of their way to be extra helpful which would have been nice.

The hotel has a central (indoor) courtyard where the pool and some tables are located, while the rooms are placed around this. This could easily cause a noise problem for the guests on the first floor, some rooms have the door literally a few feet from the pool. Luckily I was on the third floor and had no issues.

Room Tip: Keep away from first floor rooms to avoid noise.

Thank you for your feedback and appreciate the time to add your review. We always do our best to exceed our guest’s expectations, so my apologies for the staff not coming out of their ways to make your stay even better. In regards of the rooms by the swimming pools, usually these rooms are assigned to special request from guests as they may have their kids with them and would like to be close to the pool.
We look forward to welcoming you again to Best Western Atrium North at your next visit to Austin, Texas.

We stay here often. This time, the AC was faulty in our room. We were quickly moved to a different room. The pool is pretty loud in the evening. The breakfast is great! It's convenient for me. Thank you.
