“Needs a Makeover”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2003

My company has a contract with this hotel and asks us to stay here at a good rate. That said, this place is in bad need of a makeover. It is your typical Embassy Suites with a pretty atrium, a small-ish indoor pool and a small gym. Typical breakfast and cocktails served in the lobby. However, if you take a room anywhere other than the back wall - farthest from the lobby - be assured you will get 3 hours sleep. At the corner of two highways, this place can get loud. And if that doesn' keep you up, the furnishings and amenities will - outdated wall unit housing TV, beds with thin mattresses and pads, dingy bathrooms that can often stand a better cleaning. If you get the room for $75, take it. Much more and you'll want to head to the Arboretum for the Embassy Suites or Amerisuites. Enjoy Austin!

We stayed here for 2 nights in early August. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. The standard rooms were amazing and the courtyard was beautiful (our girls loved the fish ponds and fountains).
The property was a little on the older side, but was superbly maintained. The indoor swimming area was also lush and inviting. Every evening there is a complimentary cocktail hour and every morning there is cooked to order complimentary breakfasts provided. The only potential draw back is the immediate area isn't the greatest, but it is only a short drive to most of the area attractions.
