I had a pleasant stay at the Sheraton. Its location is convenient to UT. The hotel is well run and the employees were pleasant. The beds were comfortable but the sheets were a little scratchy.
The next time I stay in Austin I will most likely go back to the Sheraton.

This was a great stay. Parking was plentiful and easy, check-in was very smooth, the lobby bar was great and staffed by wonderful people - all in all everything you want in a hotel. Room and bathroom were very clean, elevators fast - I can't think of anything to complain about! The location is perfect as well - minutes from downtown by foot. I definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again if I find myself in Austin.

The hotel has all the amenities you'd expect in a Sheraton conference center, from comfortable rooms with lots of amenities and no noisy heating/AC unit to a decent pool and fitness center. I call this hotel "nice" and give it a top ranking because the staff was friendly and helpful across the board. From the check in staff who took the extra time to help guests plan their Austin visits to the car valets who were always ready with directions and restaurant reservations to the bell captains who managed bags and guests' travel needs, I only dealt with staff who put their best foot forward to make sure I was comfortable in the hotel and able to find my way around Austin when I left the hotel. I hope the management continues to do what they are doing to keep their employees happy, because they made me feel welcome at this hotel and in Austin. It's walking distance to the Capitol Building and tourist attractions, but it's at the edge of the downtown so get directions from the staff so your walk is safe and interesting, and you'll have no problems walking around the city day or night.

The Sheraton Austin Capitol property is in a convenient location and offers excellent service. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably well-appointed. In particular, the bedding offered at Sheraton properties provide exceptional comfort. I highly recommend the Sheraton Austin Capitol as a lodging choice.

Located within walking distance of lots of neat attractions including the UT campus and LBJ library (note that most of the library is closed until mid-December), several museums, the Texas state capitol and the French Quarter-like 6ixth Street and Red River districts.

The hotel includes two nice pools (one in, one out), very good workout facilities and a genuinely friendly server at the morning coffee bar. Other staff were very friendly and helpful as well. Nice view from rooms that face downtown (request a room opposite the I-35 side of the property).

The one negative is that the room was clean, but not sparkling, and we found a number of long black hairs in and around the bathroom that didn't come from us.

Still would recommend for the many positives.

Room Tip: Request a room on an upper floor with a view of the state capitol.

We stayed here for a conference. I brought the family along so that they could enjoy Austin while I worked. The Sheraton is clean and comfortable, and my conference was being held here. For those reasons, it was perfect. It wasn't anything more than just that. It was within walking distance to the Capitol, and my family enjoyed that. We walked to nearby restaurants, but there aren't too many choices when you don't have a car & it is raining.

All in all, the stay was fine. Good, even. Just not amazing.

Good location if you don't end up on the freeway side of the hotel. This is mostly a Friday-Saturday problem but be aware that traffic and sirens will keep you awake. That being said, if you plan on staying up all night you are only 5 blocks from 6th. The hotel is clean and the service is consistent. Nothing spectacular but no problems either! Another issue is that valet parking is $26.00 a day and the service is very slow. (probably due to the awkward parking garage situation) Self parking is a huge pain and will still run $16-$20.00. I find this outrageous but, you be the judge. We visit Austin often, and always bid hotels so, we end up here quit a bit. I would call it a 3 1/2 star hotel. Again, it's a good place to stay with only a few real issues depending on your situation.

Room Tip: Stay on the East side of the hotel for a quieter night!
