Stately building but by no means not up-to-date. Our room was very comfortable and the building itself is very attractive. Located a short walk from the Capitol Building (or whatever they call it) and not terribly far from the University of Texas. Plenty of very good restaurants in easy walking distance. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. If we're ever in Austin again, no doubt about it, THIS is where we're staying.
