According to my online booking site, this hotel was "in downtown close to the big sights", that is true if you're going to spend $40/round trip to the proper downtown (i.e., 6th Street, State Capitol, Univ of TX). An alternative is renting a car. Our room had little black insects (which we could not identify); the wall cooler/heater did not work properly (it would not heat up the room & it would not regulate the degree of coldness). The jacuzzi was par for the course but don't get into that pool as it is not heated. The beds were comfortable & the decor was pleasant. The staff was beyond friendly & always attentive. Housekeeping service was poor--had to ask multiple times for tea/toiletries to be replaced.
