Embassy Suites by Hilton Austin - Downtown/Town Lake
Ranked #44 of 203 Hotels in Austin
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The convenience to downtown Austin was great. The staff was friendly enough, nothing super though. The complimentary breakfasts were great! The parking was very poor, and lacked security. Seems that a covered access could be provided. The rooms were all clean and rooms were very nice. Overall, a good experience, maybe a little pricey for what was delivered.

Stayed: April 2013, traveled with family

I recently stayed here for 5 nights and found it to be an excellent value. The room was clean and I love the idea of a separate bedroom! Breakfast was good...all you could eat at the buffet if you didn't want a custom omelette. The managers reception was fun and the Margarita's were great! I wish I had been able to enjoy it all 5 nights but I was out of the hotel at the required time. The shuttle service is wonderful if you don't feel like taking the short walk to downtown or SoCo. Remember to tip your driver...they really deserve it!!! We had Michael and he was terrific. Room service was prompt and the server (Eric?) was very pleasant. The business center was a godsend as I had left my laptop at home. The airport shuttle was very prompt and the driver, Rina (sp) was a sweetheart.I would absolutely stay here again if I'm in the Austin area.

I can find no fault with this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Room service was quick and the waiter was very pleasant. The shuttle service was excellent and the driver very accomodating. The evening reception was fun and the breakfast was delicious. I would definately stay here again!!!

Overall it was good - there was a stain on the bottom sheet that really made me sick when spread the bedspread up after sleeping in the bed...ugh! Gross! Room was by the elevator so it was noisey in the morning...they need to monitor the driveway during check out and make people move before loading teams of people in a van...we were behind one and not one could get aroungd them until they moved...

Excellent location, great service! The cooked to order breakfast was good and very fast. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The fitness room was pretty well equipped, given it was a hotel. We walked downtown for dinner and ran along the trail each morning.

I have stayed at Embassy other than this hotel and find that they are consistently good and good value. This is conveniently located allowing for a reasonable walk to 6th St, the bat flight and the Capitol.

The hotel is a little dated. The rooms are not as clean as they should be. The rooms all face into the courtyard vs. long hallways, which is a nice security feature. The parking is in the rear of the hotel in a detached garage with no security. Great complimentary breakfast. the staff is very friendly.
