This is a great location to watch the bats flying out of the congress Ave bridge.
The hotel is a little aged but our king room was quite large and had a view of the lake.
we were within walking distance of a free festival that had live music as well as many great restaurants and bars.

1. When we pulled up, no valet came over... even as we removed baggage from the car. My husband finally went and got one who handed him a ticket and said overnight valet would be $24.00. Well, needless to say we declined the "service" and still ended up with a $16.00 per night self-park fee.
2. The front desk service was much better. Very friendly, pleasant smiles all around. Quick, kind service is always good.
3. The room was super outdated. Heavy old patterned drapes and cheap posters in thin gold frames. Not what I expected from a downtown location in Austin, or for the price we paid. It was clean though!
4. Very uncomfortable bed! It was a Sleep Number, which may be wonderful for others, but we hated it. Both nights were terribly uneasy. BTW: If you are couple who use the middle of your king size mattress to cuddle, or whatever, this is not the bed for you.
5. On the plus side, the location is perfect. On the river with a perfect view of the bats exodus. Head East for restaurants, bars, shopping, and a farmers market on Saturday.
We stay downtown often and I must say there are much nicer options for the price of rooms here. However, if you get a good price give it a chance for location and nice desk service.

My wife and I stayed at the Radisson Hotel & Suites Austin-Town Lake last week where I was attending a conference. The rooms were clean and quiet and hotel staff was on the ball when it came to maintenance. Best of all the location is great - about 10 miles from the airport and on the edge of downtown and with blocks of several fine eating places and music venues. If you have a river view (like I did), you can even catch the flight of the Congress Avenue bats in the evening. If you like to walk, you are about a mile from the shops along South Congress or the grounds where several music events take place along the river. If you like to jog and swin, you can literally step outside and hit your stride along the jogging paths that hug the river and you are just five minutes away from a swim at the constant 72 degree Barton Springs bath. I did not have a vehicle but there is parking available (for a price). However, if you were to eat lunch (reasonable at $6.99) at the TGI Friday's located in the hotel, you could get free parking for a couple of hours at the hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room - higher up the better!

I stayed here this past summer for a week long conference at the Austin Convention Center. Although its a little dated in the looks, the overall expereince was good. The Convention center was only 3 blocks or so away. Lots of little eateries and coffee shops in the area plus the Raddison has a Starbucks in the lobby, which is the only Starbucks within blocks of this area. Wifi is free in the lobby but not in the rooms. However, sign up to become a Club Carson Member (which is FREE), you'll get Wifi for free. Also, this hotel is right next to the infamous Congress Bridge where all the bats come out. You start to see people line up around 7:30pm, bats come out around 8:15pm. If you haven't seen it, it's pretty neat.

Location great for walking to downtown bars and restaurants. Also provides great vantage point for Congress Ave Bridge Bat emergence in the evening. There is a Starbucks which is a big plus for me. There is also a TGI Fridays but I only went there for breakfast. My room was clean and quiet. The parking garage is rather cramped and if you self park you have to go up at least 3 floors, then elevator back down to lobby level, then to another lobby to get back up to room, which is a bit bothersome.

3 night business trip. Staff always helpful and friendly. Room service was prompt and reasonably priced for a downtown hotel. Recommend king room on lakeside -- larger and quieter rooms, plus you get a great view of the bats flying to the "bat bridge" in the evenings.
