Spent 4 days at this hotel for business. My room didn't have a hair dryer, so look for one when you check in.
Food and service were wonderful in the restaurant. Try the charizo stuffed dates!!!
The hotel is within walking distance to Austin's finest restaurants and shopping.
Cab ride from the airport is about $30 with tip.
Fitness center is average sized, but equipped with weights, bike, 2 treadmills, and elliptical. Water, towels, and ear buds were supplied.
I had a haunting experience in my room on the 9th floor. Cigar smoke and other paranormal activity. I later learned the hotel was haunted.
